Counting Quarters

Chloe entertains herself for a little bit while we are doing laundry.  She is learning to count and I caught her counting the quarters one day while I was loading the machines.

Mother's Day Out

We have enjoyed our year at Mother's Day Out.  We met some amazing women that work there and Chloe has loved the program.  She had some really special teachers and they made the year really fun for her.  The arts and crafts were her favorite part, but she liked the chapel songs as well.  We are going to miss everyone for the summer.

Visiting Mimi and Pawpaw

We got to go visit Mimi and Pawpaw for Memorial Day and then Chloe and I got to go back in June for a little vacation.  Chloe has been begging and begging to go see Mimi and Pawpaw so she was so very excited when we finally got to go visit.

 She eats ice cream every night with Pawpaw before bed.  She wants every last drop!

Gramma and Poppa's Visit

Steve and Cindy got to come for a little visit in May.  We always love getting to see them when they come visit.  Chloe was so super excited.  She was stuck to them like glue all weekend.  I left my camera at home pretty much all weekend, but did manage to get a goo picture of them together before they went home.

Mother's Day 2014

I had a great Mother's day weekend this year.  We didn't get to see either one of our mothers this year, but we did get to talk to both of them on the phone.  We got Olive Garden to go on Friday night which is my favorite place to eat.  On Saturday we went to a wildlife preserve that is in our area and had a nice little walk.  They had an activity for the kids where they got to color a flower pots for the moms and plant a flower.  They had Lantanas for the kids to plant which I was very excited for because I love those flowers.  Then Sunday was church and Clint took us out for ice cream that afternoon.  I enjoyed the weekend very much hanging out with my little family.

Summer Time!

Summer is officially here complete with hot weather and everything.  I am more excited about summer than I normally am, but I know that a couple of months from now I will be hot and tired and ready for fall again.  I always am, but in the mean time I will enjoy it.  Working at our church's Mother's Day Out program this year has been a huge blessing, but after several months of schedules and routine and not having Chloe all to myself I am kind of excited for a few months of more laid back days, some fun play dates, spending some time with family and playing in the sunshine.  Chloe has already been enjoying the outdoors!

  Watering the grass for Mama.  I like doing comparisons when I wind up with some of the same pictures every year, to see how she has changed.  The left picture is last year and the right is this year.  She is growing so fast!

 Making her teachers a card.  She loves to create and is very serious about it. The finished product.

 Some friends gave Chloe a sandbox.  She was checking it out.

 Then she turned it into a swimming pool

Washing her car again!

During the summer outside is Chloe's favorite place to be so I know we will be spending a lot more time outside this summer.

Sleepy Princess

Our little girl had a few days where she didn't nap so was super tired by bed time.  It made for some long days, but some super sweet cuddles at night.

 Asleep watching cartoons with Daddy

 She pulled her little couch inside the bed with her one night and fell asleep in her own little cubby hole.  It was too cute not to take some pictures.

Surprise By Chloe

One day I opened my nail polish drawer and found my whisk inside.  I guess Chloe was helping me put dishes away.  Its always a mystery at my house.

Easter 2014

This was the first "normal" Easter we have done for Chloe  The first year she was here she was too little to do all the Easter activities so we didn't really do too much for her.  Last year we got to Odessa the Saturday before Easter so we were unloading a moving van on Easter Sunday.  Mimi and Pawpaw got some Easter goodies for her that year, but this year it was up to Mama and Daddy for the Easter fun!  Between school and family she had 3 egg hunts and got some fun goodies in the mail from grandparents.  She got a package from her Gramma and Poppa too, but I guess Clint helped her open it when I was making dinner or something because I didn't get any pictures.

 LOVE the chicken!

We had a very nice weekend hanging out at home and chilling and remembering the real reason we celebrate this holiday.  We are extremely grateful to our God for His love and sacrifice for us.

Big Girl Hair

Chloe's hair has slowly been getting longer and I decided to try a couple of new hairstyles.  She isn't very patient with me fixing her hair, and I have no idea what I am doing so it has taken me a little while to try some new things.  I decided that she can't go through life with just one style though so it was time for me to branch out a little.  Her hair is still a little short for these styles to last long, but she was so cute I had to document it before she messed it all up.

 Kisses for Mama

 Big Smiles!

 Ponytail (on the go - She was escaping out the door as I was trying to take this picture)
