                    Today, we took all the toys out of the boys' room and play room,

                             and dumped them in the middle of the living room floor.

                              A lot of things were thrown away, but some made it to the get rid of boxes.

It may not look like much, but these are pretty big boxes!
           The toy room (a.k.a foyer) is looking much cleaner. If someone unexpectedly rings our doorbell, maybe we'll be able to get though easily this time (That would be really nice).

I just tried to get a photo of the finished result, but all the cameras have dead batteries, so I'll try to post one tomorrow.  :)

I know, It's been ages since I posted!  In the past few weeks,  I've been doing a lot of brother/sister watching. Momma has worked hard to meet a house-painting deadline she set for herself. She quickly finished painting a hallway, a bedroom, several doors and one of the bathrooms. Primed doors are so dark compared to the bright whiteness of painted doors! Mommy did a wonderful job, and it all looks great. :)

        Momma, Anna and Lydia went to Birmingham for two days. Anna is nearly blind in one eye, so she has started doing eye therapy.  Every month, Anna goes for therapy sessions, and  Dr. Snider checks on her eyes to see how she's progressing.

There are flowers all over the place! It smells so yummy and sweet when I ride, or walk, around our neighborhood.

  Here are pictures of some spring flowers:

Orange Blossom

An Azalea

More Azaleas


Blueberries are growing as well

        Until next time!

P.S. We have a very special surprise coming to our house soon. I'll make sure to post about when the surprise gets here. ;)

Lydia's New Leg

      By special request from a friend, here's a picture of Lydia-Badidia's new leg:

The new leg has a squishy pad in the bottom of the socket (the cup-like top part), which makes it more comfortable for her to wear.

And here's the old one:

I think the purple one is much more fun, but she wanted skin color this time.  That surprised us, because her favorite colors are purple and pink. She says, though, that purple is still her most favorite color. She just likes pink a Little bit :)

Happy Birthday Daddy

Today is my Daddy's sixtieth birthday!!

Yummy Pea-Picking cake
Five things I love about Daddy:

1.   His leadership

2. How he seems to know everything about everything!

3. When he tells us stories

4. His smile wrinkles :)

5. When he lets us (even me) sit in his lap

       I love you Daddy.

Anna's Glasses

                                                  A couple of days ago Anna got glasses!

Trying them on for the first time
  She didn't really like the idea of glasses at first, but now that she's had them a bit, I think she's changed her mind.

         I decided to take some pictures of Anna in her new eye wear, so here are a few of them:

Momma likes this one
They make her look grown up. :)
