Pulled out Parker's jumperoo for her and she loves to jump and the music

Recent purchases...

On our way back from Memphis last weekend, we stopped by the outlet in Tunica. Parker picked out some beach shoes, and then he thought that his sister needed some too! So, this is what we came home with. They really are cute and will be great for this summer. Also, while in Memphis, we went to an outdoor store for Will. I found Parker a northface jacket that was 50% off...of course, I couldn't pass up the bargain! It is a little big, but it will be great to wear for a couple of years!

Parker Update...

Here is just a couple of pictures of Parker actually smiling. We are really working on potty training, and so far this week he has only had 1 accident. His school asked that all the kids just wear underwear from now on and pull ups just at night or nap. We are working really hard to be potty trained by 3...keep up the good work, Parker!

Superbowl Party

We went to the Towles' house on Sunday afternoon for the football game. It was a divided some cheering for the Colts and some for the Saints. Needless to say, my household was happy with the outcome!! We had a great time socializing with friends. Parker played with lots of friends...Breland, Campbell, Caroline, Reese, and Mary Frances. Overall, the kids played great together! Can't wait for another excuse to get together!

This is what I found...

Parker was being really quiet, so I went to check on him...this is what I found. He has pulled out all of his DVDs and books in his TV stand drawers. He was reading books and watch tv. Later he told me, mom its time to clean up this messy mess!

Big Daddy's 89th Birthday...

Big Daddy celebrated his 89th birthday last Saturday! On Friday night, we had dinner at his house with lots of family! We are so blessed by all of his wisdom, and it is amazing to hear all of his stories!
