Bobbin' it!

Well, I did it. Joe has wanted me to do this for a long time and today we took the plunge. See for yourself....

BEFORE
AFTER

After many days of tangles and tears we had Erin's hair cut into a cute bob today. I have no idea how it hold up, but for now, it is adorable and we're so happy we did it!

Erin's Pride


The "Pride" of Lions
One up close and personal!


Erin has the curse of a Summer birthday which means school parties have to be celebrated early. On Monday we took cupcakes to school to share as Erin's birthday snack. She wanted a Madagascar theme, so we made Lion Cupcakes. I'm rather proud of "the pride" of lions we created using items we had on hand. I did have a little help from a "recipe!" Erin got a big kick out of them and said her friends loved them!

Mother's Day 2009

There's no better way to celebrate Mother's Day than with your precious children and your mom. I was blessed to have the day with my girls, my mom and my mom-in-law. There was a lot of eating involved which made it even better. It was a very special mother's day!

Pickin' Berries!





Saturday was our annual trip to Brookdale farm to pick strawberries with the Saunders and the Judds. However the Judds left us hanging this year! Erin kept asking if Anderson would be there because he always has been. Boo Hoo! We had a great time despite the mud. Anna didn't care much for picking and putting them in the basket, she preferred just to eat them - so I let her! Erin did great as always and got me a slew(sp?) of beautiful, yet oddly shaped, red strawberries. Joe's all time favorite dessert is Strawberry shortcake so he is very happy with our work!
