Special Visit

One of my very best friends, Linsey, came to visit last week. We had been planning this visit for months. We worked together for the past 3 years teaching 4th grade, and we became such great friends throughout that time. I decided to stay at home with Ella, and she decided to move back home to Jackson. The 3 of us went to lunch, and then went back to our school to visit everyone. Being able to stay home with Ella and watch her grow is so amazing, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. But seeing everyone I worked with made me wish that I was back in the classroom. The visit was cut a little short because Ella was hungry; so we headed back home. It was great seeing Aunt Linsey & we hope she will come back very, very soon.

Turkey King II

Well, I am happy to say that Nick killed his first turkey on opening day at the Conservation League. He was so excited! My Dad "The Turkey King" and Nick set out on a mission early Saturday morning and came home with 2 turkeys. Hunting is pretty much a way of life in my family, so I expected nothing less. Way to go!! The picture above is me with my daddy's turkey when I was Ella's age. We didn't bring Nick's turkey inside because my mom would have had a stroke. We did of course get some pictures outside.

7 Months Old

Another month has passed in the blink of an eye. Ella turned 7 months old last Wednesday. Her pediatrician told us that the next few months are going to be life changing...he was right. She is changing and doing so many new things all the time. When I picked her up this morning I quickly realized that she had cut another tooth. That makes FIVE teeth!! She has been pretty good about it, only a little fussy at times. She is such a trooper. Bath time = fun time :) Her new thing is taking a bubble bath with a teething biscuit. I am all for that...less mess for me. She still loves, more than anything, to be outside playing. All in all she is a healthy, happy baby...except for the occasional attitude. I'm not quite sure where she got that from. HA! Happy Tuesday and enjoy the pics.

A Day At The Park

Nick has been in Las Vegas all week for work, so it had been a long 5 days for me and the babe. We decided to take advantage of the 70 degree weather Friday and head to Conger Park. It was really windy, but Ella didn't seem to mind it. She loved every minute of it, and I'm pretty sure her favorite was the swing. This park has it all, and we can't wait to go back.
