Easter 2011

We had a great Easter, although, a bit busy. We got up early to see what the Easter bunny brought! Alabama was excited to see although the few days before Easter she told us she didn't want him to come! In her basket she got a stuffed lamb, a bag of gummie life savers, a M&M's egg, a book, and a hairbow. We got dressed and went to the Sunrise service at my parent's church so that we could see them for Easter. This picture is as good as it gets for our family Easter picture....maybe we'll try again later. We ate breakfast there and then headed to Evans to our church. We had an AMAZING service! The music was wonderful and the preaching was inspiring! The praise team sang "Arise My Love" and it was as if we were there with Jesus! It was sooo good! We had a packed house and I think maybe a record number of people there! After church, we went to Adam's parents' house and ate lunch and had an easter egg hunt. Adam's sister, Georgia and her family were there, too. This is Alabama with her cousins; Anna, Morgan, and Ethan. So cute! Alabama had fun with her cousins and was so glad to see Morgan! She talks about her all the time!

After we ate, we hid the eggs and Alabama was really into finding them!

It was a long day and she was worn out so she took a little nap before we went back to church for the Spring Fling that night.

We had a fun time with our church family that evening! We had so much going on, volleyball tournament, a bus pull, inflatables, hot dog supper, and an egg toss, too!

I made Alabama this bunny shirt and I thought it turned out sooo cute!

Yes, I'm still here!

I haven't blogged in so long partly because when I get behind, I feel like I have to catch up before I can write anything else. But....even though I still haven't posted any of the birthday party, I'm going to post anyway!

Alabama was so funny yesterday when I had to make a delivery at Martina's florist. The lady asked us if we needed help and then started to talk to us for a long time. She told Alabama how cute she was and that she liked her outfit. (Side note: When we went to see my niece Morgan in her cheerleading show a few weeks ago, Alabama wanted to wear her "Go Dawgs Outfoot" (Ga Cheerleader oufit) so now she associates the word outfit with the cheerleader suit.)Sooo, when the lady said that to her, she started saying pretty loudly "Go Dawgs", "Gold, Black" (our thomson bullldogs colors!)! ha! The poor lady had no idea what was going on! I tried to explain, but I'm not sure she ever got it!

Later that night, she was playing with my sister, Audra, on the floor and she told Audra "I'm leaving." But she had her passy in her mouth so it sounded like I'm lemon. When Audra kept asking her where's the lemon, she got frustrated at her and told her "I'm going Bye-bye!" ha! It was like if you don't understand real words, I'll have to use baby talk with you!

She is absolutely obsessed with flip-flops now. Only, she calls them "shoe-flops!" She asks everyone, "Where's your shoe-flops???" "You wear shoe-flops like me do?" She wants to wear them every. single. day.

She has a semi-imaginary friend/cousin now! ha! Apparently her cousin, Jenna, has moved in with us! I really didn't know that kids had such big imaginations so young! She will tell me all the stuff that Jenna is doing, that Jenna wants something to eat, etc. When I tell her Jenna is at school, she says "No, No, Jenna right here!" We will even get in the car and she tells Jenna to buckle up. Sometimes, as we are pulling out of the driveway, she says "Mama! We left Jenna!!!!" and I have to stop and say "Get in Jenna!" It is really the funniest thing! I need to get it on video how she acts with "Jenna". ha!
