My painting!

Lindsay and I went to SipsNStrokes in Vestavia. She invited me to go paint with her. It was so much fun... !! I can barely draw a circle... so this was just a lot of fun having someone tell you what to do... and it turned out decent!! Everyone knows my brother is the artist in my family--- so this was fun. I would love to see how Jer's would have turned out... he could have sold it that night I bet!! Anyhow- I am going to try to get a group together in March to go do this again!! Anyone interested? I know Melissa is! And Stephanie! Right?! And Buffie too! Post a comment if you want to join me!! Thanks again, Lindsay for inviting me!!

Riley's basketball game

We watched Riley play basketball a couple of times this season. It is fun to watch him play- but it is hard to get good shots! (I was speaking of pictures not basket shots! )

Story time at the Library

Shake Shake Shake your beanbag!

Some fun stuff

Hannah and Grace read a book! Hannah!
Hannah and Stephanie getting ready to sing into the microphone!

Grace gives alligator some medicine.

Grace's FIRST OFFICIAL haircut!

Once again... the pictures posted backward... but you will get the point. I cut Grace's side rat tail when she was about a year old... but she had her first REAL haircut this past Thursday!

ZaZa got her haircut, then I did... and then Grace said... "MY TURN" It was so cute. Here is the after shot: During Shots:

Before Shot:

Ugh--- I wish I could learn how to rearrange these photos... it CAN'T be that hard can it?

Enjoying some gifts

Grace drinking water out of her special New York cup from Uncle John and Aunt April!

Getting ready to "mix it, mix it." We made mini muffins using the pans Sam gave us, and Grace is wearing her apron from Grandma and Papa!

YUM YUM! Grace is a mess!

Now let's get cleaned up! Grace loves getting in the tub like this and calls herself a "duck in the water"
