What A Year....

My Dear Gracie,
What a great year we have had together my little four (almost five) year old!


It has been such an honor to be your mama and watch you grow.
 As a big sister, as a daughter, as a person.
I am so proud of the five year old that you have become!

In The Garden :: New Little Friends

We planted a fairy garden for Gracie's birthday the other day and while she was collecting the perfect fairy flowers at our local nursery, the owner gave her a jar of ladybugs. Ladybugs!!! Gracie has been asking for months if and when we can get ladybugs for the garden. (They can eat hundreds of aphids in a day!)

They are so great that they even made into our "family" photo the other day. Lucky bugs to be so loved!

Ready To Go

Emily loves dressing herself these other peoples clothes!
It is adorable!!!
She collects laundry as I try to fold it, yells "dress" as she frantically tries to firgure any way to fit it onto her body, then "cheese" if I pull out the camera, and finally once she is in proper attire she yells "go!"




"I'm all dressed up and ready to go." -Bert from Sesame Street (We don't watch but we definitely listen!)


We miss you already!

We dug in the dirt, prepared for visiting friends, swung in the hammock and smiled....a lot. What a way to welcome spring!
