I am a Christian, a wife, and a Mommy. I love Jesus, my husband, my 2 little girls, our families, and our church. I am all about bright colors, but I like neutrals too. I love crosses, baking, my coffee with lots of sugar and creamer, ruffles, wearing dresses, doing crafts, wearing fun necklaces and big rings, distressed picture frames, french country, my cowboy boots, and dressing my girls up in fun and cute clothes. My home has double wooden doors, a farmhouse table that my grandmother bought for five dollars at a yard sale years ago, chairs that don't match, and pictures everywhere. My dream is to learn to sew. I have a thing for Ford vehicles and love days in my pajamas. Oh, and I'll take a medium diet coke, 2 shots of vanilla, and no ice (from Sonic, of course) please!
Macy and Lucy love to color the driveway with sidewalk chalk. There are two problems with this. One, Lucy likes to eat the chalk. Two, the art doesn't last forever! Lucy thinks it is really funny to smear Macy's artwork with her little sweaty feet. Macy does NOT think this is so funny!
We have two wonderful preachers with our church this summer. They are actually staying at my parents' house for a couple of weeks. One of them has taught Macy how to make balloon art. This is her creation.
My wonderful friends Lu and Katie McCrary welcomed a little boy into the world on Wednesday, July 18th. His name is Jay Nash McCrary and will be called "Nash". He weighed 8 lbs 9 oz and was 20 3/4 inches long. He is absolutely precious! I got to hold him yesterday in the hospital (you know I was LOVING that)! I think he looks a little like his Mama with his Daddy's mouth. Lu is one of the few that are in Lucy's small "circle." He is wonderful with her, so I can only imagine how wonderful he will be with his own baby!
O.k., so I am NOT the world's greatest blogger, but it is a fun thing to do......so I am still trying!! Ya'll that know me know that I am not the "scrapbooky" type, although creative I might say, so this is sort of my way to scrapbook. Anyway, wanted to share a funny story about Lucy.....
When you ask Lucy her name, she says "Shushi" (hence the nickname from Bippy and JisJis "sushi roll"....."sushi" for "Lucy" and "roll" for her little fat rolls that are all too cute!). Well, we have a neighborhood dog named "Buddy" who we have all adopted. (Sad dog story, he got left when some people moved out suddenly). Whenever we drive in our driveway, Buddy comes running to greet the girls and play. So the other day, Lucy walked into the living room, and Jason said "Hey Buddy". Lucy said "no, no, I'm Shushi." Too cute!!
