coloring cutie

Essie is alllllll about coloring right now. She asks constantly to color.  Everytime she finds a piece of paper she says (demands) COLOR! COLOR! COLOR!  She has even colored on the coffee table, couch, her pink chair, door, and maggie.  Yes she is a little stink! So the first thing she does when she gets home is run to get a coloring book.  She looked so cute today in this hand-me-down valentine outfit! Deena always fixes her hair so cute each day!





This eveing I tried out two new recipes...easy mac lasagna and pink lemonade cookies.  They were both really good! Here is Essie eating her cookie.




Last night I worked on getting Essie's old clothes ready for consignment.  I've spent over 10 hours total on it so far..about 6 hours last night.  But I'm finished and so happy about it..such a relief.  I filled 3 tubs full! Hoping to make some major moohlah!

a letter to ya'll

Since I blogged about our current situation a little while back we have had so many people (some we know, some we don't) reach out to us and lend kind words, support, testimonies, etc.  I realize that we are extremely blessed that Travis has a job.  I have a job.  We have a house, clothing, food in the fridge, a car to drive....and most importantly a healthy, beautiful little girl.  So many people are going through much worse seasons in their lives.  We have an incredible support system filled with friends, family, and even strangers.  I cannot thank you all enough for reaching out to us.  We will be fine...there will be days that I will feel sorry for myself.  There will be days that I'm angry at our situation.  But even in our saddness and anger and frustration I know that we have so much to be thankful for! I will keep everyone updated as we move along in the next few weeks!

a beautiful day in the neighborhood...

It's been a GORGEOUS day in our neck of the woods.  So un-winter-like! My parents came down last night so Essie has been in Nana & Papa heaven! She was very sad to see them go this afternoon.  After they left we all three took a nice nap and then headed to the park (along with 50,000 other people!).  She got so beside herself as we pulled in...she kept shreiking "PLAY! PLAY! PLAY!" She was a wild woman...all over the place and she had such a good time.  She was not happy at all when we left!






Just for fun here are some pics from a few days ago...she was being silly and put a crayon in her sassy! ha!

Valentine's Day Pics-Professional

Today we took our lil Valentine for her pics...this shirt was a bartering item.  I made some cookies for a local lady who monograms so she made me some shirts! I will say I was dreading these pictures...getting her to stay still is impossible.  But she did such an amazing job! She put on one heck of show...we got some of my favorite pics ever! Check 'em out for yourself!

lunch date and playing mommy

Look who came and visited with me during my lunchbreak today! She loves to be at my school and today she sat in my chair acting like a big dog.  My kids fawn over her and of course she looooves the attention!

They even sing to her! ha!

And this evening we were invited to dinner with some friends. Before we left Essie put on a show...

and had to take her baby.  She wrapped her up, put her in the carseat, gave her a "sassy' and put her in the car.  In fact when I said "let's put her in the car" Essie said "otay" and tried to put the baby seat in her cozy coupe again! hahahah!
