Bottle Tree Success

She may be a Charlie Brown Bottle Tree but I love her and I am proud of her and I am oh so glad that I took welding.

Spring Break Celebration

 This has to be one of my favorite cakes I have done in a long time.  I loved the way it turned out for my friend, Allison's birthday.
During Spring Break her husband, Ken, planned a crawfish boil with a group of friends to celebrate her getting another year older.

Tis the Season

 Baseball season has always been one of my favorite times of year.  It is one of the only sports I understand, so of course I'm more interested.   Joanne has some pretty awesome seats and is pretty generous in sharing them.

 This year baseball season has provided me with another reason to go to the games since Meagan is a Diamond Girl and I get to see her.

 Probably my favorite picture of Cullen and me taken in 2012 is the one above.

McCarty Madness

So I thought it would be a great idea to go the McCarty's Second Sale. 
To be such a collector I had never been and thought it was a bucket list kinda event.
 We, my friend Kim and I, left for the Delta around noon and we perched our chairs half way around the warehouse about 2:00 
 Friend from Pontotoc who was 13th in line.... she came out and left me her 35 gallon  garbage can...
 Friend from the Delta who stopped by just to see the madness...
 At 9:00 p.m. 7 hours after we set up chairs...I finally saw the door....
 Me inside but still waiting just to see a piece of McCarty
And this friends is a collector's dream...but by this time my back hurt, my feet hurt, and after I spent my budget the line to checkout and watch other people sort was excruciating.  I am so glad we went and had I not had to sit in class the next day from 9-3 I wouldn't have minded the late hours.

Oh Henry

Here are some more pictures of the first few days of Sweet Henry's life...he is so sweet

Uncle Bubba, as Ellie calls Cullen, really helped make her feel special during her first days as a big sister.  They talked about princesses, played, and he catered to her every whim.

This is evidence of how my mom babysits...She sleeps while he sleeps... notice the resemblance...
Look at this happy baby boy.
