Back from the beach...........

Well, eight days later and I'm home from the beach. Not home because I want to be.. but because the weather turned cold and rainy and no one would stay a few extra days with me! But I guess for now I'm glad to be home. Now when I get to the office tomorrow and face 8 days of build up I may be singing a different song!

Moments to remember.....
Beach trip with family can really be nice! It was nice to see the smiles on the George and Zanna's faces as they played in the sand... and it was a hoot to watch Jocelyn keep from touching the sand with her hands OR her feet! This was the trip that George leaned to swim with out floaties and Jocelyn learned to like the floaties!!!!

Zanna announced that both her front two teeth are loose.... when they come out is a 'big day' and they never seem like babies any more................

Can I start again?

Tonight I was reading a friend's blog about MOMENTS TO REMEMBER. And I realized that I needed to come back to a place where I shared (mostly for myself!!) moments in my day that are worth remembering.

Today: I realize how proud I am of Georgia! She has come to a point where she has realized that there are things you have to do..... even when they are the last things on earth you want to do. I mean who would want to study when they have a fever of 101.9 and have to be back up in about 4 hours? But yet she is studying her nursing!!!! I love you Georgia!

I also found out that Molly has passed all parts of the Graduation Exit Exam except History. She retook that part this week! Glory be.. there is a God!

Spring Carnival

I just love going to the Fall and Spring Carnivals and watching all the faces, eating someone else's funnel cake, and wishing I was young enough to still WANT to ride all those twirling monsters!

Can You Jump Rope?

I've spent many an hour jumping rope in my day. I've skipped to Cinderella dressed in yellow - more times than I can count. But never, NEVER EVER could I jump like these girls...... Amazing! (please be patient... it is slow to load... but I think it'll be worth your time)

Back to Back BAD Weather

Tornado on Friday afternoon- major damage in area.

On Sunday night a major wind storm caused extreme property damage over a large area of North Alabama. It has been explained as a 'gravity wave' wind......

And neither of these photos does justice to the true amount of damage!

Happy Easter 2009

Easter 2009! Our oldest daughter and her husband joined the church today. Their oldest daughter was Christened here about five years ago and today their four year old son and one year old daughter were Christened.

I've included a photo of the Christening gown. My first cousin Martha Pullen ( had the gown made for our youngest Molly, sixteen years ago. The oldest granddaughter wore it and today the baby.

We will put it back in storage for the next baby to come along.

I can tell you that is one more hard to iron dress. It took me about 1.5 hrs to iron it. I counted last night and including the lace on the sleeves and neckline.... there are 31 ROWS of lace.
There are three rows of 3-pin tucks and two rows of 5-pin tucks.

We also have water that was brought back for us from the River Jordon that is used for the Christening
