June 23

My cousin's daughter (Emily) and her husband (Dave) came through town today on their way to a wedding.  We all met up for dinner! It was so nice to see them!!!

June 22

We went to the outdoor movie tonight at Taylor Farm Park.  It was a perfect night and we had the best time!!

June 21

This is Drew and Tasha's daughter, Sydney.  They met at birth and were each others very first friends.  I have a picture of them as babies in their car seats holding hands so I made them re enact the picture and neither one was real happy about it, LOL!

June 20

I have been looking forward to this day for the longest time.  My old friend and neighbor, Tasha was coming through town on their way to Florida and made a pit stop at out house.  We used to be so close and I haven't seen her in 11 long years.  We both cried when we saw each other and it was like she had never been away.  We took up right where we left off 11 years ago.

June 19

Look who made All-Stars!!!  Holley is a little tomboy and an awesome athlete!  She was chosen out of a huge amount of girls to play on this team!!

June 18

We went to eat dinner at Arby's tonight and this is what Addi insisted on wearing.  I just let her go....not fighting that battle.  Needless to say, she got LOTS of compliments!

June 17

Taylor and her new guy!  His name is David and she met him at college!  They make a cute couple, I think.

June 16

Popcorn for breakfast?  Took the kids to the free movies which started at 10 am!

Girl's Trip!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE (did I say love?) Joan Jett.  So I heard she was going to be doing a concert in Chattanooga, I decided to organize a road trip for the girls to go.  Me, Shannon, Taylor, Jackie and Belinda.  This is our selfie we did when we stopped to eat at Cracker Barrell!

June 12

Drew sent me this pic from camp.  He is always surrounded by girls.  he loves them....and they adore him.

June 11

Addi has VBS this week!  She is sooo excited. She has asked me about 879 times when it's time to go.  When we got there tonight, she literally ran all the way into the building.  I am so happy that she loves going!

    It was blustery and cloudy all day today.  Then tonight it POURED down rain.  After it rained, Drew went outside and called me out there to this beautiful sky.  It was totally orange and there was a night.Very cool!

    June 4

    I have been complaining to Drew that I don't have enough pictures of him on my blog so he sent me this one of him at a pool party!  See that little teeny tiny head in the middle.  That's him!

    May 31

    This girl is INTO EVERYTHING!!!  We had to get her out of the house today because I was exhausted from keeping her safe in my non baby proof house.  We went to Chick Fil A for dinner....and stayed for hours (until bedtime).

    May 30

    Look who has come to stay with us for a few days.  Miss Harper!

    This is Dustin, our nephew.  This is Keith's brother, Kevin's oldest son!  I am so proud of the way he turned out.  he is the sweetest boy and is headed to culinary school to learn how to be a chef!  Awesome job, Dustin!

    May 23

    School's Out! School's Out! Teacher let the monkeys out!  These kids will be in kindergarten, 4th, 5th and 8th grades next year!  Wow!!!

    Drew has become quite the little photographer.  He took this picture at the carnival and edited it!  It would be awesome to have a photographer in the house!

    May 21

    Addi loves to visit the library!

    May 20

    We took the kids to the Shrine Circus and carnival tonight!  Drew wasn't too happy about going with just us and not his friends.  But he ended up having a good time after all (yes, family can be fun).

    May 19

    Addi letting her butterflies go!  We had so much fun watching them turn from caterpillars to butterflies.  I loved watching them be set free, made me feel so much better!

    May 18

    Every now and then I get crafty.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided to make one for Addi and Harper.  It took me about 15 minutes and I love how they turned out.  I thought they can wear them for Memorial day and the 4th! Yay me!

    May 17

    We went to one of my favorite restaurants of all time today!  It is a HOLE IN THE WALL (but aren't they always the best??).  It's Poole's BBQ in Ellijay, Georgia.  Keith had been there before and took me there not long after we met.  I am VERY picky about where I eat and as soon as he pulled in, I said no way.  I finally, reluctantly got out and went in thinking I would just sit with him while he ate.  Well, I ended up getting a sandwich and let me tell is the best darn BBQ ever.  I ended up getting another sandwich and then I got a big container to go.  Now, every time we go up there we MUST stop.  MUST! (The owner, who still works there daily told us that this pic came from an old Piggly Wiggly and it barely moves but it kept Addi occupied for 15 minutes or so).

    May 16

    Braves Game!! Drew, Addi, Hannah, Holley

    May 15

    Terrible pic of a sweet girl!  This is my niece Belinda!  She works at O'Charley's (where David is the manager) so we decided to go surprise her at work!  She is the best waitress.  She has a ton of regulars and makes VERY good money!

    May 14

    Addi decided that she didn't want this little house any more so look who inherited it!  Miss Harper! She has a cute little playroom that is just perfect for it!

    May 13

    Isn't this beautiful!!??! This plant came from my mom's funeral (yes 18 years ago). It was just a tiny little plant back then.  It dies out every winter and each spring it blooms into the most beautiful plant ever.  It always makes me so happy to see it blooming because I think of my mom when I see it.

    May 12

    Oh my Goodness!  I have a new addiction (yes, another one!!).  This stuff is heaven on earth.  I kept seeing the commercials and it looked SO yummy!  But it was so expensive I didn't want to buy it in case I didn't like it.  Soooo, I was over at Jackie's house and noticed this in her freezer.  I had one bite and was hooked!  It is so creamy and delish!  I promptly stopped at Walmart on the way home and bought my own....and hid it wayyyyy back in the freezer.  Shhhh!

    May 11

    Happy Mother's Day!
