3 months

A baby born was truly divine, a sweet little child who was mine, all mine.
And this little baby, as eveyone knows,

has ten little fingers,

ten little toes,

and three little kisses on the tip of its nose.

Daniel is three months old. I cannot believe how fast time has past.

Words adapted from Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox. A very sweet book given to him by Mrs. Shirley.

In our Sunday Best

Sunday morning before church, I had time to take a quick picture of Daniel all dressed with his cute cap.

About 3 seonds after I put it on, he looked like this. Not sure he is going to like hats.

After church, we ate lunch at Mother and Daddy's. This was the perfect chance to get a family picture. I think this is only one of a few since Daniel has been born.

Katie Lee wanted to hold both babies.

Grammie with her grandbabies.

Happy Sunday!!

Little Fun

Friday night, the family came over for supper.

The little ones had fun playing together.
Of course they wanted to be in the exact same spot.

Katie Lee (AKA Olivia, see her name on her page) showing off her drawing. She normally is Pam Lewter when she plays.

Silently, Daniel is taking notes of how to play with the others. Not sure why this picture will not turn.

Art Night

Tonight we attended Art Night at Katie Lee's school. She was so excited to have all of her family there. They had made so many cute projects. I was so busy looking at her work that I missed taking pictures of some of her work.

All smiles and ready to show off her room. Poppie and Aunt Kitty had never seen her room.

Showing off her name train.

Class quilt they made the week they studied the letter Q.

Class books. I love the picture on the right. It says I love my cousins and Lalaloopsy. She drew her holding Daniel and Langdon beside her with the red hair.

Love the baby owls.

This year is cruising too fast.

Her family. This one was done at the beginning of the year. No Daniel in the picture. Not sure what is what. :)

Katie Lee with her friends. Poppie also popped into the picture.

Tool and Gadgets

In a few weeks, Donnie is helping host a Tool and Gadget party for a hunting buddy of his. He was in charge of invitations, which means I was in charge of invitations. I searched for one that I liked, but those were mostly couples showers. This party will be a guys only (insert Tim Allen, Tool Time grunt). I wanted something manly and inexpensive. I printed the invite on green cardstock and Duck taped it to sand paper. That's it. I thought it turned out cute for this type of party. Katie Lee loved getting to help me because this was one that she could pretty much do on her own.

This and That

Not a lot of things have happened in the last week, but I did get some cute pictures. I thought I should show them.

Langdon spent some time with us Thursday morning. He was fun to have with us. That afternoon, Mother and I took all three kids to visit with Price. Katie Lee has gone with Mother to see him about every week since she was a few months old. Add in two more little ones and that is not as easy of a trip. Anyway, I forgot my camera which is too bad because they all enjoyed the visit. It was also his birthday and Katie Lee made him a card. Wish I had gotten a picture of it too. She drew her, Daniel who she is holding, and Langdon with red hair. It was too cute.

Friday morning she looked so growny when she was ready for preschool.

Sunday afternoon, she spent a great deal of time playing with her new dollhouse. Donnie surprised her with this Friday. She LOVES dollhouses and this one is huge.

Sweet Daniel looked super cute Sunday for church.

Sunday night, the little ones were getting ready for bed. Langdon wanted Daniel in his lap. By the time I got my camera he was about finished with him, but it still turned out cute. I think Langdon is really going to take care of Daniel.

Makes Me Smile

I love how Daniel gets all excited and full of smiles when someone talks to him. He would love to have someone talk to him the entire time he is awake, and I try to as much as possible. Isn't that my job?!?!

I also love how much Katie Lee loves to play. Last night we ended up having a playdate with James and Laura. Lucky for us, they happen to show up at the same time. I think these two had fun.

Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day

Over the weekend, we celebrated Valentine's Day. Donnie and I gave the little ones their gits.

Both were so surprised over their gifts. HA You can tell from their expressions.

The little ones gave their daddy a Snapper-licious shirt. This is from Call of the Wildmad on Animal Planet. Donnie and KL discovered this show while Donnie was off work when Daniel was born. They thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. Just ask KL about it and she can fill you in. She also made him a card that said, " Real Live Action Man" and had the turtle man holding two turtles on it. That is the famous line that he says when he catched the snapping turtle with his bare hands. Of course, Donnie thought it was great.

They gave me a mani/pedi gift certificate and a bucket of suckers which KL loves. Donnie always has to give a practical gift so I got a new Dison vacuum.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Valentine's Party

I love all of the special days at Katie Lee's preschool. Today was their Valentine's Party.

Enjoying a snack.

Kaylee and Katie Lee wishing each other a Happy Valentine's Day.

A hug for Dylan.

Katie Lee was given an owl to make. She made it this afternoon.

Katie Lee shared these cute treats with her friends. I got a couple of cute ideas from Pinterest.The girls got heart shaped soaps. The tag says, I was soapin' you'd be my valentine.

The boys got glow sticks with hearts (You make my heart GLOW!!)

Fun Weekend

We had a fantastic weekend. It began with supper at Mother and Daddy's Friday night with all the family. Saturday, we did a little shopping that afternoon and then Allie's 4th birthday party that night.

Happy Birthday Allie.

Katie Lee had so much fun.

Sunday was a great day at church and time with family.

I think this was Daniel's favorite part. When we came home from church, he was so happy to stretch out. Doesn't he look LONG?!?!?

It was also a special day because Katie Lee earned her Lalaloopsy car. You know she LOVES Lalaloopsy. She saw these at Wal-Mart in January and wanted it then. Since it was right after Christmas and she needed nothing new, she had to earn it. For everyday that she was on her best behavior she got to color a letter or put a sticker on it. She is so proud of herself and excited about earning her car. She went to bed playing with it and got up playing with it.

1/2 Birthday

Today, Katie Lee turned 4 1/2. Not sure how that happened. She is growing up too fast. She was so excited when I told her that she is 4 1/2. She jumped up and hugged me like I had given her a prize. I will be signing her up for kindergarten in a few weeks. Cannot believe that!!! She is learning and changing every day. She amazes me, keeps me on my toes, and cracks me up with what she says. She loves to be help out with lots of things, the color pink, going to preschool, and church. She loves to play especially school, doctor, church, singing, and Lalaloopsy. She loves to "read"(we are working on this) and write. She is a great big sister and really loves her brother. She is the sweetest little thing and I am just crazy about her.

Getting Ready

The last few days we have been getting ready for Valentine's Day. We made pink cookies yesterday. I love cake mix cookies. Not healty, but oh so good.

Today, Katie Lee worked on Valentine Cards for her friends at church. She used the church directory to make sure she did not forget anyone.

The front of the cards did not have enough room so she wrote the names on the back.

She did a great job and a good bit of time getting them ready.

Daniel just layed beside her and watched.
