Under the Sea

Saturday, My mom and I took Addison to a local high school play- The Little Mermaid!
This was my absolute favorite movie as a child, so I was excited for Addison to see it in a play.
 We sat in the back just in case we had to leave early...
But she did great! The only part that she did not like was the "thunder and lightning" from the Ursula.
The kids did a fabulous job! 
After she got to see the "princess" mermaids in their costumes. 
I wish I would have snapped a picture, her face was precious as she waved at each one. 

We wore this sweet girl out... 
I turned around when we got into the drive way and A was passed out! 
I love Saturdays spent with her! :)


Trust in the Lord with all your heart...

Life Lately...

The days seem to be flying by. 
 It is almost the end of April and I feel like it just begun.
Here is a little catch up on our life lately..
 Brent was out of town so we had a sleep over at Gigi and Pops house!
 Dressing up in Mommies boots..
 Last friday, we had a girls night at church so this little one got spoiled by her daddy!
 Having fun at swim lessons!
 Addison got super star at school for having no accidents! YAY!!
 Having fun at Daddies softball game...
 playing in the dirt!
 Look what we found at Gigis... 
She had forgotten how to suck on it! ha
 Life of a toddler is rough... ;)

Life has been crazy. 
With all the different tragedies that have happened in our country this week, I am thankful for a crazy week.
 I am thankful for getting to spend every moment with my precious family. 
I am thankful for God blessing me with one more day. 
You never know when it will be your last and I would rather spend every moment busy with fun events with my family, then afraid of what is to come. 

I have prayed this verse this week
Deuteronomy 31:6 
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you
Our God is with us and will not forsake us!
What a awesome promise!

Happy Friday!

 My two favorites! 
 I lOVE that smile!
 And this sweet little girl!

We had so much fun walking around with Gigi and enjoying the beautiful weather. I love getting to spend special moments like this with her and can not believe how fast she is growing! 
Happy Wednesday!

Swimming Lessons

We signed up Addison for her 1st swimming lessons class.
She LOVES the water so it was time for her to start learning how to swim and safety tips!

We are taking the class with our sweet friend Rahely and they are having way to much fun!
It took A a little time to warm up but...
She ended up doing great!

We had so much fun with these two sweet girl!

Easter Weekend!

We had such a fun busy Easter weekend.
This year Addison was really starting to understand the meaning of Easter and hearing her say it was all about Jesus and he rose in 3 days was so precious and melted my heart!

Saturday, our church, Cross Church, held a magic show and a egg hunt!
It was pouring that morning so it did not look to promising, but Addison was so excited.
 Helicopter dropping the 20,000+ eggs
( Do you see ALL that WATER?!?)
 Addison was loving it!
After tromping through a very muddy, very wet field
 Addison got to pick up a few eggs.
 We were all soaked by the time we left.. defiantly a memory we will never forget! ha

After coming home, drying off and taking a much needed nap, we decorated eggs.
Addison LOVED every minute of this.
She wanted to do everything all by herself... and since my "hard boiled" eggs where not so hard boiled it made it a little harder.. haha

I found this fun idea on Pintrest
Glow in the dark egg hunt... and it was SO much fun.
We played over and over in our dark house.
Defiantly a must do every year!

Sunday morning the Easter bunny hopped on by and left Addison a few treats..
 She was beyond excited!

Our sweet girl ready to go PRAISE our RISEN king!

Praise Jesus- He is our RISEN king. I am beyond thankful for his grace and blessings..

Happy Easter!

The Last Week in Iphone pics!

I have been a absolute horrible blogger. 
I am now 15 weeks so praying I get a boost of energy and the horrible nausea decides to go away!
( will be posting baby updates and pictures soon! :) )

This past weekend, Brent and I got to take a fun little weekend away just us two to Dallas.
We had so much fun just hanging out and SLEEPING IN! 
 While we we out shopping Saturday, we got this picture...
 I am so glad that this sweet girl loves her Gigi and Pops house! 
It was a fun little getaway, that was much needed but we were excited to get home to see A, even though she wanted to stay with her grandparents instead of go home with us! ha

Sunday night, we did a little egg practice hunt for Addison's class party on Monday.
She loved every minute of it!
 And of course I had to pack her a fun lunch :)

This poor tired girl did not want to get up for school.

We met up with our sweet friends Rahely and played!

We hung out at home so I could get caught up on laundry.. Addison played "baby" with Marlee.

Gigi wore this sweet girl out! 
This never happens... fell asleep before 8! 

"Mom come play tea party with me!" 
Little did I know... 
She was playing with real tea that she had snuck from the kitchen! 

It was a fun busy week! 
Looking forward to a slow down this week and praying for warmer weather.
