Kate's New Room

For Christmas, Kate got a new bed, and then for her January birthday she got the matching dresser and nightstand to go with it. I had planned to paint her room for her birthday as well, but I just now got around to it... (yes, I know it is March... Don't judge me, peeps! Ha Ha!!) anyway, my parents came up for Abby's birthday, and so my mom and I started painting Monday morning. We THOUGHT it would take us a day. Well... Three days later... We finally finished! Ugh!! The pink was hard to cover, even with good paint that had primer in it! It took 2 coats all over, and THEN when we took up the painters tape, the paint had bled ALL under the tape and was ALL. OVER. THE. BASEBOARDS. I almost cried!! I did not know if we would ever get it off! (we have natural pine baseboards...) we had to scrape it all off with a razor blade!! But it finally came off. THEN, when we pulled the tape off from around the ceiling, we had a lovely pink line left!! We had to go BACK and edge it AGAIN to get rid of the line!! But, it is finally done, and the pink is gone, and Kate loves her teenage room. (It's a good thing, because I am never painting it again!!)

Happy 10th Birthday, Abby!

Ten years ago today I had just delivered the biggest, most beautiful baby girl... At 8 lbs, 5 oz, she was a roly-poly baby, and nobody would have ever guessed that she would grow up into the tiny wisp of a girl that she is today!

She is sweet, kind, honest, brilliant, and beautiful, and I am the luckiest mom in the world, because I get to call her my daughter. I could not be more proud of her.

Abigail Ann, today on your 10th birthday, I wish you love, happiness, and joy. I hope you have had a wonderful birthday! I love you to the moon and back. Happy Birthday!!

Spring Break has already Sprung...

...and I never got around to posting! Oh well... Thus is my life right now!

We had a great time visiting with Nana and Papaw and the rest of the fam for a few days in McAllen. The rest of the break was spent at home. We finally got around to having a b-day party for Miss Grace (whose b-day was in January... Don't judge, my peeps...) and the party was a lot of fun. We went pottery painting and to Chuck e cheese's. Kid a palooza!! :-). I will try to put some pics up of her party, but no promises... I am still figuring out the mobile blogger!! :-)

Meet our new puppy, Rex!
We got him in January, and he is so fun... He is a mini Australian Shepherd. We had planned to name him Baylor, but it just did NOT fit his personality... He is spunky and funny and wild... MUCH more of a Rex than a Baylor! He has already become a member of the family!

First Attempt: Mobile Blog!

Well, since I cannot seem to find time to update the old blog any other way, I thought maybe if I loaded the ole' blogger app to my phone, I might get it done that way! Who knows?!?! But I shall give it a try!

Here's a pic of me with the girls holding some of our baby bunnies. Yes, we have baby bunnies, but that's a WHOLE other post! Ha ha

Hope this works, and hope I now will update more often! :-)
