Girlie backgrounds!

Good Morning! At least it is right now. Melanie is an early riser so I've been up with her for a while. I thought I would enjoy a more girlie background before our little guy arrives at the end of June. I will be changing the blog name, too, of course. I think I have that finally figured out, but you'll have to wait till he arrives to find out what it is. :)

Andy and I are headed to Tulsa, OK, later today for a friend's wedding. Through the magic of Facebook Andy has reconnected with several guys he knew in the Navy. One of them is getting married this weekend. I'm sure it will be a reunion with several Navy buddies. I'm just looking forward to a night away without our girls! We have a trusted sitter staying with them, and the girls couldn't be more excited--at least Anne and Naomi. :)

Okay, Mel is evidently done with her breakfast. Adios amigos!

Naomi Turned 6!

Naomi turned 6 at the end of March! Sometimes I can hardly believe it!! Since our house is not finished we had her birthday bash at a nearby hotel. They offered a birthday package complete with use of the indoor pool, a suite for 1 night, and use of the eating area for partying. So, Naomi had a swim/slumber party for her birthday. Naomi loved it, and all the girls seemed to have a good time.

It all started with the swim party from 4-6pm. Then they dried off and gathered in the common eating area for pizza, birthday, cake and presents. Afterwards I took the girls to the suite for the slumber party. Thankfully my two nieces, Loren and Aspen, helped me with all of this. I'm not sure that I would have made it through the whole thing without them. In the suite we all changed into PJs and made name bracelets. Then the girls watched a Barbie movie to settle down before sleeping. The girls were all asleep by 11pm!! :)

The next morning we went back to the eating area for the free continental breakfast provided by the hotel. The girls' were all picked up by 10am.

From left to right: Anne, Loren, Melanie, Naomi, and Aspen. Melanie enjoyed swimming so much!! She's a fish just like my other two!!

Easter Sunday!

Easter weekend was such a roller coaster of weather. Saturday it was beautiful. I even got a little sunburned because we were outside all afternoon. Then Sunday was rainy and cold all day!! The girls still enjoyed wearing their dresses. We had just bought them Friday. They had fun picking them out and giving them the "twirl" test in the dressing room. I ended up buying Anne and Naomi both size 7 dresses. It's hard to believe that they are 18 months apart in age.

Melanie wasn't feeling very well. I took her to the doctor Saturday morning because she woke up wheezing and had a fever. She was put on Zithromax. We were already using the inhaler that was prescribed for her when she was diagnosed with RSV last November. She is no longer fevering, but still coughing. Hopefully it will all clear up by the end of the week. Since she wasn't feeling well she wouldn't stand with her sisters for the picture. So, daddy picked her up, and she managed a little smile. :)
The weekend was busy, but fun!! Saturday was spent with Andy's side of the family, and Sunday with my side of the family. The girls made out like bandits on Easter candy.
Praise God for His Son Jesus, His sacrifice on the cross, and His resurrection! The real reason for Easter.Posted by Picasa
