I am soooo thankful! It's a NEW YEAR, and my BLOG is back!!! For some reason, it had gone missing for a couple of months, and I was unable to access it. It was a little devestating, truth be told, when I realized that I had neglected to write in baby books like I should have and chose to blog instead (well, until I forgot to post for a good 5 months, but you know what I mean)! ;)

I resolve to be better about posting, and am so excited that I still have access to this blog!!! Woohoo! Happy 2011 to our wonderful friends and family!

Singin' in the Rain...

Today...this very day...we played in the rain. Two times. Well, C&B played in the rain, as I looked on happily from under the cover of Mimi's garage, or our front porch roof. But man, it doesn't take much! They were so excited..stomping around in their rain boots, dancing, twirling. I've decided that we're going to play in the rain more often...maybe I'll even join in next time!!! ;)

My Sweet Kiddos..

I LOOOOVE Spring!!! Here are a few photos to document this gorgeous time of year!

Also, I've started another blog, in case you're interested, oh faithful readers! ;) Dedicated to my old and new creative ventures, helping me navigate my way through motherhood. You can go here, if you want to check it out!

Coloring Eggs....(Sort of) :)

First, all was fine and well, as the eggs were nicely bathing in the dye-filled water....

Connor was really concentrating on coloring on his, and getting his egg to that perfect shade of green...

And, then, Connor laughed himself SILLY!!

And this is why! :) Brooke was coloring more of herself, than the eggs! ;)

And, voila...the finished..."product" :)

Happy Easter, and remember John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, He gave His only son, that who so ever would believe in Him, should not perish but should have ever-lasting life."

And then she was.....TWO!

Oh Brooke, my sweet, happy, vibrant, singing, dancing, energetic, inquisitive, and highly-affectionate baby girl. How Mommy adores you! I can barely remember what life was like without you (though I think it may have involved a teensy-tiny bit more relaxation--but who needs relaxation, anyway? ;) You are the sunshine of our lives, and nothing makes my day more than when you run up to me, wrap your sweet, chubby little two-year old arms around the neck, and shower me with kisses! Sigh... You are wise beyond your years, and keep all of us on our toes, as your curiousity can sometimes get the better of you! Brookie, it's been two whole years since your sweet, shiny, PINK presence burst into this world, and we are soooooo very blessed because of this. Mommy, Daddy, and Connor love you dearly (as do your grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends).
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank the Lord for the gift of having a daughter...and especially because that sweet daughter is YOU. May the Lord bless you, keep you, make His face shine upon you, and give you, and always. Oh how I love you, sweet girl.
