Here Comes Sun!

Claire has been taking advantage of this beautiful weather we've been having. She decided to water my lantanas after taking a dip inher new baby pool from Nana and Pawpaw.

Lily Grace and her mom dropped by with these brand new shades for Claire. Lily Grace is sporting her new shades as well! Thank you Lily Grace!!
Jesse is smitten with Lily Grace and of course, had to have his picture taken with the girls. Lily Grace had no problem plopping down in Jesse's lap for this picture! Will post more soon....2 days left of school!!!

Portrait of Claire

My wonderful neighbor, Chantel, painted this picture and brought it over on Claire's Birthday. I was just overwhelmed beyond words when I saw it. It captures the essence of Claire perfectly and can't wait to find the perfect frame! Thanks Chantel!

Will post again soon!

Planting with Grandpa

Jesse was so excited when school was out Tuesday because he knew it was the day Grandpa and he were going to plant tomato plants. He immediately ran upstairs and changed into his "dirty clothes" and started to help Grandpa. They had great fun and can't wait to see our first sign of tomotoes! Claire and Grandma were onlookers, as Jesse and Grandpa did all the work!

Jesse with his finished product and and fresh new scrape form the chicken wire! What is it with boys wanting to show off their injuries?

Will post again soon!

Happy #2 Claire!!!

Claire woke up on her big #2 with an Elmo balloon, a tiara, a special gift, and her favorite breakfast! The day was very yucky outside, so we stayed in and made cupcakes and played all day!
Claire's Birthday Party was wonderful and our fabulous family and special friends celebrated Claire's Day with her! We hung pink and orange lanterns all over the house and Claire followed mommy around going "oooooh" to every lantern. We are so blessed to have such a sweet daughter and wonderful family and friends!
Will post again soon!
