New Bike Rider

Abby learned to ride her bike this past weekend without training wheels. I think she must've been ready because it didn't take much. I figured she'd get out there and talk her daddy into quitting, but she didn't. By the time I got the camera and got outside, she did it! That night we fixed cupcakes to celebrate and the McKees came over for burgers. What a fun Saturday!

Oh No!

I've become what I don't like... that's a person who has a blog, but NEVER updates it! Well, I don't have an excuse anymore. I know how to update it, and I have more time now than I used to so I HAVE NO EXCUSE!!! The entire family arrived in Orlando on December 30, 2008. It's hard to believe we've been here almost 2 months now! Since moving, here our some highlights from the past two months 1. Abby started a new school called The First Academy, otherwise known as TFA. 2. Doug got another motorcycle. 3. I celebrated my 34th birthday at Magic Kingdom while Doug was in Germany for 10 days. 4. Abby and Doug attended First Orlando's Daddy/Daughter date night. 5. We bought annual passes for the family at Disney. That last one is probably the most exciting of all of them! We plan on visiting one of the parks at least once a week. We'll see if we actually do that. Once summer rolls around, it may be too hot! Here's a few pictures of what we've been up to!

Most of you probably thought we've fallen off the face of the Earth! We're back. I haven't been able to update my blog because I couldn't figure out how, but thanks to my Memphis friend, Kim McMillen, we're back in business! For those of you who haven't heard, we're in Orlando now. Doug is a worship leader at First Baptist Church Orlando. He moved down here in November, and the kids and I joined him after Christmas. Since I haven't blogged since Abby's first day of school in August, I've got way too much to catch you up on! I promise to NOT wait 5 months to blog again!!

Abby's First Day of School

Well, it's official! Abby's a grown-up now. For all you moms whose kids haven't started yet, just wait. There's just something about "big school" that makes a little girl lose her innocence! She absolutely loves it though. She loves her teacher Mrs. Ramsey, too. She came home the first day and said she could read. She could read her book "School Time," but she has no idea that she really can't read. She wants to read a book to Elliott every night, which is really sweet. As I'm typing this I'm just about to doze off since this week has been so hectic. I guess we're just getting back into the swing of a daily schedule and such. Here's a few pics from the first day!

Beach Fun

We recently took the kids and headed to Rosemary Beach for some much needed vacation time. We had a blast!! The beach was beautiful, and the kids enjoyed it as well. Not only did we play at the beach, but I think one of the highlights of the kids' week was riding go-carts for the first time.
Here's a few pics...

Take a Look at This!!!!

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE Elliott! But... he's a boy... and totally different than his sister. I'm not going to compare them throughout life and give him the, "I'm never gonna be as good as my sister" syndrome. But Abby would've NEVER pulled a stunt like this one. Can you guess what that lovely white stuff is all over his mouth??? FREAKIN' WHITE OUT!!! What you can't see is the white out that's on the roof of his mouth! I immediately called poison control. Luckily, the man didn't think he got enough in him to make him sick. You can see how he thought the entire thing was hilarious! I guess I've got to start reading Dobson's "Bringing Up Boys" quicker than I thought!
