There she blows!


Those of you without kids are going to read this blog and think I can't believe she is blogging about this. For those of you with kids know how wonderful it is not to have to pull out the nose sucker on your child. The minute she sees the thing she starts screaming so loud her lips turn blue because she is not breathing! We have been trying to teach the kids to do this (since everyone has had a runny nose for months). We were eating dinner last night and without even asking her she blew! Now when we put the tissue to her nose she blows. She will only do it once each time but I will take that!!!

Supporter of her political party

I could not resist these pj's when I saw them. The pants have the elephants all over them. They are too cute!

Trey took this picture of Mallory. I thought it was too cute!

We are set to close next Monday on our house in Ruston. We can't wait! There is a lot of work to be done but it will be worth it. We have ordered counter tops, hired a contractor and are looking for a painter (for the cabinets and sheet rocking). Trey is the primary painter! We have a busy month ahead of us. We are taking a Smith & Schieffer family vacation to Destin this summer. It will be the girls first trip to the beach. I am SO Excited! I haven't been to the beach since Hawaii! A whole week with Trey! The girls and I can't wait!

Here are a few pictures of the girls playing. We got this amazing camera for Christmas. I actually feel kinda silly using it because it has this HUGE lens on it! It takes wonderful pictures! Mallory's 1st birthday is next weekend. I can't believe my baby is going to be ONE!!!! Where has the year gone? Alyssa will be 2 next month! We are staying busy trying to find good deals on materials for the new house. We are set to close on the 4th. Well, I better go get Mallory before she climbs up the fireplace. That girl can climb up anything!!!!

We found a house!

We finally found a house in Ruston! We have not sold our house in Shreveport yet. We did just switch realtors so maybe that will help! We found an older house in a great neighboorhood. It needs some updating but we are excited to make it our own! It has plenty of room. I can't wait for the girls to have a playroom. My living room will actually be a living room. We are set to close on February 4th. We are going to try to get all of the work done before we move in. We can stay in our rent house until the end of February. Pray for Alyssa. We have some health issues going on but I am not going in detail here. I have a ton of pictures of the girls to post but we got a new camera and I am not sure how to get the pictures on here. I will post them when I figure it out!
