1st Ranger Game

Well, Annaleigh finally attended her first Ranger game last night. I have to say it is a moment that Russell has been talking about for a long time....He was SOOOOOO excited to take her! It really was a perfect night to go watch a ball game...and the Rangers even managed to squeeze out a win!Hanging out with friend Emily Russell was SO excited about getting her an ice cream in a hat (for nostalgia reasons, I guess.) The one thing he didn't remember is they are $5!

Annaleigh didn't care how much it cost. She was just happy to get ice cream!

And to top off the sugar high, she got to share a coke with mommy and daddy.

Favorite Blogs

So...I have mentioned before that I am a blog stalker. Today I wanted to share 3 of my favorite blogs to read. It so happens that I have not formally met any of these individuals...but I think it would be cool to one day!
Happy Stalking!

Tales from the Modern Housewife: A mom/renaissance woman from Nashville with fun know-how and info on all things local, vegetarian & crafty.

All these things: Deep thoughts from a modern day muse living in Nashville.

Life through my eyes: An exciting journey to having Quads from a mom with a great sense of humor.

****UPDATE**** Ironically enough, the quads and their mom were featured on WFAA channel 8 tonight (for all you DFWrs)

So here's a question....What is your favorite blog to read???

New things

A's newest thing is she is obsessed with her bows and necklaces. The first thing she does when she wakes up in the morning is ask for them both.Mimi and Pop got her a Little People farm a few weeks ago. She loves those little animals and carries them everywhere! It's so HARD not to spoil this little girl because she gets SO SO SO excited over anything new. She was so excited she was actually shaking when we were taking the farm out of the boxAnother favorite new thing to do is go swimming. We try to go to the pool about twice a week. The girl is not afraid of water at all! I want to point out two things about the picture below. First, A is with our dear friend Elaine who is currently taking a 5 week "sabbatical" in Colorado! We already miss her like crazy! The second is that I want you to notice A's expression. We affectionately call it "the Elvis face." It's kinda hard to tell but she does the lip raise perfectly when she isn't pleased with something going on. I guess she was tired of getting her picture taken. Did I mention I have an opinionated and expressive child??...and oh my goodness, the girl has really started talking. She seems to repeat almost every thing we say. Favorites are: Mama, Dada, Lola (the cat), baby, bow, neclic (necklace), shoes, ball, up, out, hi, bye, more, yuck, duck, bip (dip: as in ketchup which she wants to dunk all her food including fruit), cup, & tank u (thank you) I am just amazed how much in these past few weeks her speech has improved.
In blog news. Reese has some pictures up of her little princess & Casey had her baby on Friday. Little Henley is just precious. Now we are waiting on April's , Kate's, Michelle's,and Calista's little ones to arrive soon...then Elizabeth, Angie, & Becky!! Babies, Babies EVERYWHERE!!

Me as a Simpson

My BBF Carrie, the Modern Housewife did this last week and I thought it was pretty funny so I decided to give it a try. You too can go to and see what you would look at as a Simpson. As a side note to all of my Lipscomb University friends, I chose for my hair to be straight since that is the way I mostly wear it these days....yet, I still don't think it looks much like me. What do you think??
