Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths. ~~Proverbs 3:5-6

My lil' Brownie!

Abby's very 1st troop meeting is tomorrow after school & she is super excited! I surprised her with this cute little tote bag to carry her vest and any other little girly things she may need.

A lady at my office makes bags in her spare time (Ha! - Gail would laugh hysterically if she read that -- who in the heck has spare time?!?!). Another girl at my office was flipping thru a fabric book and found this adorable pattern and showed it to me. 1+1 = new bag for Abby!

Happy "Valentime's" Day!

Abby has ALWAYS said "valentine" wrong, so I am just embracing & accepting it.

She had her classroom party on Thursday, and it happened so quickly (I guess the teacher was ready to scoot them on out the door), these were the only pics I had time to snap.

Katie & Abby

Abby, Gracie, & Maisun

Emma & Abby (and for those of you who know who Zach is - that's him in the background)...& I have no idea what is up with the weird shadow across Emma's face

Daddy/Daughter Dance '10

Abby's 1st event as a Girl Scout was this precious little dance that she got to go to with her daddy. It took place at an art museum in Chattanooga. Aside from the professional pic, the rest are what you should expect when you let your husband and child leave with the camera. I was hoping for dancing pics, but this is what I ended up with. *all art pics are courtesy of the Ab-ster*

Sneak peek

Little girls are made of daisies and butterflies and soft kitty cat purrs
And all the precious memories of times that once were.

Little girls are made of angel's wings and giggles and a firefly's glow
And all the happy feelings, deep inside, that we all know.

Little girls are made of cinnamon and bubbles and fancy white pearls
And snowflakes and rainbows and ballerina twirls.

Little girls are made of sunshine and cupcakes and fresh morning dew,
And these are the reasons, little one, why everyone loves you.
Poem by Karen Barnes

There will be more to come!

I think that Abby is destined to be a teacher. Awhile back (2005 to be exact), she was playing in her room and this is what we found!

How precious is that?!
