Easter Egg Hunt

We went to Clara's first Easter egg hunt yesterday at Jolie's house. Clara thought the eggs were rattles. (Her mama's benefit- I got to eat the candy.)

Oprah's favorite things

We are playing normal people's version of Oprah's favorite things at my MOPS group in a few weeks. It is supposed to be something that is less than $10. So I have been trying to figure out what I am going to take. Since the main thing I miss from my pre-baby life is having time to enjoy a good fiction book, I am thinking about taking "The Princess" by Lori Wick (it is my ALL-TIME favorite). That is unless you have some better ideas for me.

What is one of your favorite things?

Daddy Daughter Time

Chris and Clara spent time together this weekend while I went to Shreveport to see Beth Moore. They did great of course. I was excited about coming home because I thought Clara would be excited to see me like she is when Chris comes home from work. But when I got home I picked her up and she reached for her daddy. Oh, well! The Beth Moore conference was very inspiring.


All around

Trip to Little Rock

We went to Little Rock on Saturday for my friend Alee's wedding. It was a very sweet wedding. I am very excited for her because she is a few years older than me and has been looking for Mr. Right for a long time. Her husband works for Family Life and seems to be a very Godly guy and absolutely crazy about her.

Alee and Kenny Fairis

We also visited Gran Jo. Gran Jo's house was our home away from home when Noah was in Arkansas Children's hospital. She is an amazing lady and a blessing in our lives. Our last visit was to see Liz and her 4 day old twin girls, Madalyne and Haylee. Liz was Noah's primary nurse at ACH. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the darling tiny babies.

Ok, I might try this but no promises

We are preparing to have Chris' sisters and their kids in this week. I am excited because I always enjoy their visits and at this point in my life it is so fun to have adults around.

Clara is growing up too fast. She took about 7 steps by herself yesterday but prefers to hold just one of your hands to walk. She is also very nosy. One evening I was loading the dishwasher and Chris and Clara came up behind me. Clara was practically falling out of Chris' arms trying to figure out what I was doing. Then she gently pushed me out of the way so she could see. We both cracked up.

Well, there is my start!!!!!!!!!!!!
