Baby girl goes to 2nd grade

Brianna started 2nd grade today. We chose to send her to a small private Christian school this year instead of home-schooling like the past 2 years. It's the best decision for us but nonetheless still hard for me to walk away from her class room this morning. Missy over at It's Almost Naptime describes it best, I couldn't have said it any better!

'Mittens Mice Myers'

 Quite a creative name, don't you think? The new kitten is playful, well-behaved and extremely tolerant, although I suspect even if he wasen't, he would quickly learn to be!

Easter 2010

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter, we had a very nice day! 
The weather here has been so beautiful and our back yard is full of blooming trees and shrubs, perfect for Easter photo ops!
I  made this carrot cake for our dessert on Easter Sunday, it's Pioneer Woman's recipe and SO good!

Wordless Wednesday

As a mother of a little girl that loves hair accessories, I'm constantly losing, or searching for lost hair bows and barrettes. Not any more! I found this empty picture frame for .25 at a thrift store.

Some spray paint, purple polka-dotted ribbon and a hot glue-gun later:

This was so easy to make and will hopefully solve all of our "hair dilemmas"!
Best of all? It only cost $2.50 to make & it will look so nice in the new
"purple princess bedroom" that we are getting ready to decorate!

Words to live by:

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;

forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

be kind anyway.

If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies;

succeed anyway.

If you are honest people may cheat you;

be honest anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;

build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;

be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;

Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the end, it is between you and God;

it was never between you and them anyway.

The view around the not-so-sunny south--

Poor Tyler, he's just not a fan of the cold wet stuff, his Mama holds the same opinion!
