I'm Back!

After several "are you EVER going to blog again" comments from friends and I am!  My apologies for the lack of updates, but between my laptop crashing (MAJOR PAIN) and just the lack of time and quite frankly energy, this poor blog has been put on the back burner.

I honestly have no idea where to begin, so I have just picked a few random pictures from the last few weeks to hold everyone over.  I hope to get back into more of a routine soon!

I still can't believe I am posting these pictures of myself.  Here I am in my almost 31 weeks of glory!  I cannot believe I am 32 weeks now.  Time is flying!

Before dance one week.  We spiced up the pink leotard with some fun tights and a zebra bow :)

I debated whether or not to do bunny pictures this year...but I am so glad we did!  Check out this sweetness.  Amee and Don Hayes did a fantastic job!!

When I heard TCA was putting on a production of "The Wizard of Oz" I knew we had to go.  Ellie loved it and did so well sitting through a very long play.  Aunt Jenny joined us which made it extra special.  She is such a big girl!!

Our little artist is constantly drawing, coloring, or painting.  The other day she traced her hand and wrote her name for me.  She loves anything arts and crafts!

This has been the sickest winter poor E has ever seen.  Three ear infections, strep, and now a mystery virus.  Poor girl was pitiful last week so we were homebound for 4 days.  She was well enough for church Sunday and of course looked extra sweet!

Her imagintation amazes me daily.  She will play and play and play all day long.  She comes up with the most creative ways to use her toys and just has the best time.  Just the other day she used a baby blanket as a table cloth and stuck a silk flower into a cookie tin to use as her vase.  I wish I could peek into her mind and see what she's thinking!

We cannot forget baby brother!  My sweet, dear college friends took me to dinner last night and spoiled baby Miller rotten with tons of precious goodies.  They know me well...lots of clothes and most of them personalized!  We had a great time chatting and catching up.  I miss those girls so much but I love how we always manage to pick up right where we left off.

We have finally begun on Miller's room and moved Ellie to the big playroom.  I wanted to give her plenty of time to transition to a new room and so far it is going well!  We still have a long way to go, but at least we have made some progress.  For the nursery have a crib, glider, curtains and a dresser and his bedding has been ordered.  We did a major clean out in the playroom before we moved Ellie's bed to make room for her things and to hopefully keep it a little more organized. 

This weekend we are headed to Memphis to "Sprinkle" baby Miller and celebrate Easter with my family.  Don is on Spring Break next week and we CANNOT WAIT to have hime home!  We may even have a special "big sister getaway" planned for Ellie.   I will definitely have to recap our adventures once we return!
