Another birthday layout

Just a few more images from AbbyGrace's birthday.
This was the home/cake portion of the day. She had a great time and was so cute opening her gifts. The HUGE box sat on the table for a long time until we said "AbbyGrace, do you want to open your gifts?" She just shrieked with glee and said "OH, this is for ME?" She was so cute! She loves her castle playset that she received for her birthday.

Happy Birthday, AbbyGrace!

It's been a day of celebration! AbbyGrace turned 4 years old today! We've been talking about this day for weeks - "AbbyGrace, do you know you're going to have a birthday? How old will you be when you have a birthday? Do you know how many fingers that is?" You get the idea. She's been very excited about this day! We had planned for several weeks to celebrate her birthday as a family at Splash Kingdom - a family water park that is about an hours drive from our home. We've been concerned that we weren't going to be able to follow through with this plan because we have had so much rain in the last month. However, the rain has moved out of the area, and we were able to enjoy a great relaxing, fun filled day together as a family. We all had a great time together. When we returned home, we enjoyed birthday cake and ice cream. AbbyGrace seemed to be overwhelmed that the ginormous box on the table that happened to be wrapped in Cinderella wrapping paper, just so happened to be a gift for her! When we asked if she wanted to open her gifts, she covered her mouth and gasped, and said "oh, this is for AbbyGrace?" Why, yes. Yes, it is! She loves her Cinderella Castle playset, and is currently coloring in all of her new coloring books that her brother got her for her birthday. She also received birthday cards from Grandma & Grandpa, Nana & Papa and Majors Johnson. The gifts contained in each of these cards will allow AbbyGrace to purchase her very first camera of her own. We will head to Toys 'R' Us tomorrow to purchase the pink Fisher Price camera just for her.

Unfortunatley, my camera battery died just as she finished opening her gifts, so I can't post pics until it has charged back up. I'll try to post soon.

Easter 2007

We've had a wonderful Easter. Saturday we had an egg hunt at the corps (had a great turnout despite the SNOW!) and a blessed Resurrection celebration today. Thought you all would enjoy a few pics.

AbbyGrace LOVES to slide. Only she calls it WHEEE! She goes CRAZY every time we pass a slide (McDonalds, parks, etc.) So, with the weather getting warmer, we decided that she needed a WHEE of her own! She loves it!

I know, I'm a bad blogger!

I knew it already, but it has been brought to my attention that my blog has been extremely neglected lately. No excuses. Spring is always very busy for us. Though I have been home and been excused from many out of town expectations, Robert has been gone quite a bit already. As the spring turns to summer, it will only get worse.

Life has been pretty ordinary. Just every day stuff. I guess I didn't really think that people would want to know. I should have known better. Those that read here, read because you care (I guess, not because you're bored, right?). So, of course, you would care about our every day normal life too. So, I'll try to be a better blogger.

I do have some new material to blog about! I may work backwards for a few weeks because that's how the pictures are loaded into my program.

SO - the for your viewing pleasure! AbbyGrace's NEW HAIRCUT! I think it's adorable! It's barely spring weather here in Texas now, and her neck was already constantly sweating, and she was always brushing her hair out of her face. So, I felt for the sake of convenience, it would be best to try a new cut. She pulls it off really well, if I may say so myself!
