Awards Day Surprise!

So, I was watching the awards and all of a sudden they said, "Now we will have Hayden Ross come up to say the Pledge"! So, I had to video is of course! I had a baby in one arm, the camera in the other, and tears were streaming down my face. I just love this girl!

Little Gardeners

Daddy brought these cute little egg planter things home from a crawlspace job a few months ago. The lady wanted his girls to have something special. So, the other night the girls and daddy worked hard to plan their gardens. This is Layne's. Hayden wrote the names on the sticks for her. 
And Layne wrote the names on the sticks for Hayden! 

Egg Hunts

Layne has an egg hunt at her school on Thursday-she doesn't have school on Friday! So, we had to get 12 eggs filled for her special day. 
Hayden has a math egg activity on Friday so we had to fill 23 eggs for her. 
Filling eggs is hard work! 

Easter Surprise!

America and Gabby stopped over on Sunday to give the girls Easter baskets! America and Gabby are the girls teachers at Discover Point. 
They were so surprised! Such a sweet surprise.

No thank you! 

Sleepy head took a nice little catnap. 






Daddy, can you build this for us....pretty please?!

This is what they wanted to do the whole time.  Finally at the end they got to experience the awesomeness!!

Initial Outfitters Party

On Sunday I hosted an Initial Outfitters party at the house. Since it was St. Patty's Day everything was GREEN! It was a lot of fun and the products are just beautiful. Hartlee's mom is the consultant for IO, so I got to hang out with her for the afternoon!

Thank you Pappy and Nina, the girls can not wait to wear them Easter Sunday!!

Publix Half Marathon

On Sunday morning we all got up bright and early in order to drive into Atlanta for the Publix Half Marathon. Whit ran the race too, so we picked her up on the way. It was a hilly course, but I finished. Not my best time and not my worst.... 2 hours 26 minutes. Now it's time to start training for my first obstacle course run in May! 

As we were walking the LONG walk back to the parking garage after the race a woman came up to us and asked me if I had run the race. When I told her yes she walked up to me and shook my hand. She told me how great I was for running after having three children and she wanted to remind me about what a great example I am setting for my little ones. It was so nice to hear and I almost started crying right then and there.

Gwynn is working on even more teeth these days! This picture was taken a while back. Now she has two on the bottom and two and a half on the top!! 

More outside time!! 

We went to the consignment sale the other day. I picked up a bathing suit for Wynnie. She is ready for the beach. 

Crazy Eights....


We love our card games.

Wynnie even likes to play with her cards
