Shirts for Vacation

After school is out we are taking the girls back to Disney.  As of today we have not told them for sure we are going.  I think Abby knows we are going but she has yet to ask flat out if we are going.  When she said something about going to Disney I told her that her daddy and I would let them know when it was time to tell them where we were going on vacation.  I think we will tell them around May 1st.  We had originally planned on going May 28-June 3rd but because of a work issue with Raymond we moved it up a week.  I know we may have to make up 1, 2 or 3 of the snow days we had but the Memphis City School Board is so busy fighting over this whole consolation thing we may not know if we will have to make them up till late April or May.  I went back and forth over changing our week....Raymond was going to be able to do most of his report before we left but I did not want him to worry and be checking in with work the entire time we were gone.  Also, I have fretted over taking the girls out of school, even thou it will be the last 1, 2 or 3 days of school and I am sure all they will be doing is watching movies and playing games.  I've worried about us being transfer students into our school, even thou they have only missed 1 day each and they have only been late once and we have the days to miss but I don't want to be looked down upon for taking the girls out of school. 

ANYWAY......  Here is the first thing I made for our trip....shirts.  I bought the shirts are Joann's along with the iron one Mickey Head letters.    Abby & Allie

Even made one for dad and mom (Raymond & I) to wear.

Spring Break 2011

Spring Break 2011 started last Saturday with a short over night trip to Jonesboro to visit the Jarchow's and go see Chris Tomlin at the Convo Center. 

I can not believe that I did not take any pictures of the girls playing with Hannah.  Hannah and the girls stayed at Debbie & Chris's house with Meemaw while we went to the concert. It was great show and we had a great time singing praises to God that night.

Monday was rainy so we stayed at home but Tuesday the girls and I went shopping at Target and the Mall, lunch at Chick-fil-a and then off to see Tangled again at the $2 Theater.

Wednesday the girls and I ran some errands and that night after church the girls went home with Ammie for a sleep over.  Here they are all in Ainsley's car ready to go. 

When I picked them up on Thursday all 3 of there were not happy that I was there to take my girls home.  So we stayed a little longer.  To ease the sadness the girls had we made plans to meet at the Zoo on Friday. When we left Ammie's I took the girls to PetSmart to look at the pets, then to Target and lunch at Yogurt Mountain.  Yes, I know that is not a healthy lunch but it is spring break.

Yogurt Mountain is pretty good.  It is a self serve frozen yogurt "bar" and you could get way more than you need or would want due to the large cups they have.  I am sure we will be back there at some point. 

Friday we got up early and went to the Zoo.  It was a beautiful day for the Zoo!

Abby's Loses 2nd Tooth

After many weeks of having a lose tooth Abby finally loses her second tooth.  Only problem is we don't know where it went.  She had it at lunch Sunday (in her mouth attached) and when she was finished with dinner she noticed it was gone. 

She was upset that she did not have a tooth to leave for the tooth fairy so we wrote her a note explaining what happened.

Dear Tooth Fairy:  I lost my tooth while i was eating dinner. We can not find it.  I hope you understand and will not be sad.  Love Abby  Sunday, 3-6-2011

The Tooth Fairy was kind enough to leave Abby a dollar and a note telling Abby that was ok and she understood what happened.

Sooo Very Far Behind......

in my blogging.  We have had another snow fall since I last blogged as well as some very spring like days.  Here are a few pictures of what we have been up to.    Snow Day while Raymond was in DC for work.  He would not take one of our camera's to take pictures in DC for the girls and the ones he took on his phone I have not gotten off yet.


A few days later Abby was outside playing on the swing set in 70 degree weather.

I went and had lunch with the girls on Valentines Day

We got to visit with "Aunt" Chelle while she was in town and played Dance Party for the Wii.  The girls loved this game! 

And finally one day while I was cleaning out my closet I took out my wedding dress and tried it on...what was I thinking??  It zipped but I could hardly breath and could not move my arms because I was afraid I would rip the back of it.  It was heavier and has lot more layers under the skirt than I remember.  But I still felt like a princess when I put it on :)  I want to take some pictures of the girls in it soon.  Maybe they would like that...
