This morning during church I was holding Allie on the back of the seat in front of us and we were singing Blessed be the Lord (which is one of my favorite songs) and Allie was singing along. She does not know the words but hearing her try to sing the song was so sweet. The girls are so cute when they sign. I love to hear them sing.
I had the Multiples club Clothing sale this weekend. We were really busy Saturday and it was a long day. I was very tired last night and still am today. I did sell most of my stuff. I took 6 bins/boxes and everything I came home with could fit in one bin. I sold our baby bed, which was a little sad but the couple that bought it is having twins girls and I sold our pack-n-plays as well. One went to a couple at church with twin boys and the other at the sale. Anyway, Abby asked about it Saturday night. She was having a hard time letting them go. I kept telling her that they have sleeping bags and that they are too big for a pack-n-play. They have not been in it for over 7 months. I need to go thru what is left to see what I can sell at the Highland sale in a few weeks. I am also looking forward to going back thru what I purchased. The girls have already enjoyed playing with some of their new clothes. I hope they fit, if not off to The Children's Place I will go.

We watched Sunday's game vs. Miss State and it was too close for comfort for me. I am kinda glad that I have the Everything for Kids Sale this Friday night so I will not be sooooooooooo nervous watching the game. I was walking in and out during the last few minutes of Sunday's game. I will not be able to call to get a scoring update because Raymond does not know how to behave when watching a TIGER ballgame :) He gets mad at me when I call to get a scoring update. We play Michigan State around 9 on Friday night.
Anyway, GO TIGERS GO!!!

We took a picnic lunch and ate with the Barber's and Spelling's. They both have children the same age as the girls and I know the girls had fun running around with Kingston and Aimee.
Time for Easter candy!
This is as close as Allie would get to the Bunny. It is closer than Abby would get.
After their nap we dyed eggs for the first time. I really wish I had a bar counter top so I could have gotten better pictures. Anyway, the girls had a fun and kept asking for more eggs to dye. Now I have to figure out what to do with 11 hard boiled eggs... any ideas...(We don't like deviled eggs). I will hid these tomorrow after lunch for girls to find in the backyard. Meemaw is coming over for lunch after church. I am cooking a real lunch: chicken & dressing, ham, green beans, mashed potatoes. Meemaw is bring a cake and rolls. Yummy!!!
The girls got to use this egg holding tool that I remember my mom using when we dyed eggs as kids. They really got the hang of using the egg dying tool. It is a wire one that you can not see here.
The girls painting glitter on the eggs.

It was one of those moments that make remind you how blessed we are to be parents. I am trying to catch them on video signing but every time I get the camera out they want to look at the screen so I can never get a video of them. I'll keep trying....

We had a Selection Sunday Party last night at the Baker's. It was great to visit with some people from our Sunday School class that are not in our Reach Group. We are really blessed to have such a great Sunday School Class.
The other great thing about March Madness is the TIGERS are a #1 seed this year. We play Friday night in Little Rock. We should do well in Little Rock. We may have to play Texas in Houston if both teams make it to the sweet sixteen. Does that sound fair??? It has happened for the past 2 years that the Tigers have to play a team in their home state. Last year the Tigers played Texas A&M in San Antonio...the year before we played UCLA in CA....See what I mean. We have a great team and we look forward to bragging about how great our TIGERS are.
GO TIGERS GO!!!

We got there about 10:30. We saw the giraffes, zebras, and elephants. While at the elephants I saw a mom of a little boy that is in the girls MDO class and we started talking. Next thing I knew Allie had gotten her head stuck in the fence between two iron poles. She could not get her head out and was starting to panic. So was I!! I know I should not have paniced as well but.... anyway. The people who work at the zoo were great! They brought this hook over and latched it over her head where she was stuck. The hook was attached to a cord that when pulled made the bar pull away so she could get her head out. The Zoo worker said that what they were using was very strong and they use it for something with the elephants. Even the elephants came over to watch.
There were so many people around, I was so embarrassed. I had my friends there who helped with Abby because honestly I could not think about her while I was inside the elephant fence trying to clam Allie down. There was this really nice lady that held Allie on the outside so I could be on the inside and look at her. I had a friend who told there were some teenagers taking pictures of it so they could put it on their blogs :) I had to fill out an incident report. Jamie and Ainsley said they thought they should have taken a picture of it. Now I can say I wish they had. I need to take a picture of Allie's neck where she has the marks from the fence. I even had Ainsley call Raymond and he came from work. He was not as mad at me as I though he would have been. He just told me not to get upset because it upsets them. Which Iknow this, but at the time....
Oh yeah, when she got out she said, "I free, I free."
Who would have thought it would have been Allie and not Abby. But we are all at home right now tring hard not to take a much needed nap.

Friday afternoon playing while it is snowing.

Allie loved being out in it Friday and Saturday. Friday she walked around the back yard just giggling about it.
Saturday Raymond and the girls threw snow at each other and the girls thought it was funny. They enjoyed it so much. Saturday afternoon after it had almost melted away, Abby told Raymond that winter was over and spring was coming. And proceeded to put on her bathing suit from last year and run a round our house. Of course Allie followed in her suit.
