Where to begin?

So...It's been a while. I think my last post on my other site was in October. Several months have passed. There is no way I'll remember it all. I think I'll just hit the basics.

Thanksgiving and Christmas were fun. Mom & Dad came and spent the night with us on Christmas Eve and I think the girls were more excited about that than they were about waking up on Christmas Morning to a room full of presents!

New Years was spent at the Nugget Drop at Truett's Grill McDonough. We had a few days of snow in January. That's rare around these parts so we took plenty of pictures and even made a snowman. In February, David and I attended the annual Chick-fil-A Operators Seminar in Orlando. We had a great time with friends and can't wait until next February when we go to Long Beach, California! Truett really does take care of his Operators (and spouses)!!

Audrey turned 5 at the beginning of April. It's hard to believe she'll be in Kindergarten in the fall! She has enjoyed being in Pre-K at Emma's school. Emma has been a great big sister and has faithfully walked Audrey to her class every day. In the Fall, Emma will be on a new hall and Audrey will take over the "escort" role as she'll get to walk Amy to her old Pre-K class on her way to the big "K".

On April 25, David and I celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary. We went away for the weekend during spring break (Thanks Mom for the childcare!) and just spent our actual anniversary at home with the kids. David cooked his famous "Lindley Broil" for dinner and I made a cake. After dinner we watched our wedding video. The girls LOVED it! After the video, we had sparkling juice and cake. Audrey so sweetly asked me, "Mommy, now that you got married again, do we get to go back in your tummy and be babies again?" It was so cute....I hated to disappoint her and say no, but, thankfully that is not possible!!! :)

That brings us up to the most recent occasion of Mother's Day. On Friday, I attended a Mother's Day brunch at Amy's preschool. We were treated to a "Mommy Loves Me" song and then were able to eat a yummy lunch. We had handmade placemats and flower pots with handprint flowers! So sweet! On Sunday, we celebrated with Mom & Dad with our annual trip to the Varsity for lunch (It's Mom's favorite!). After filling our bellies with chili dogs, chili steaks, onion rings and fries, it was back home. Mom & I left the kids with Daddy and Angaw and went to get pedicures! We had a lot of fun! Of course, no Mother's Day would be complete without some sort of handmade goodie from the kids. Audrey and Amy each brought home questionnaires about Mom....I'll be sharing some of the answers shortly! Audrey also brought home a beautiful pin that I wore proudly. So, on to the great Q & A's.

Q: I like it when my Mom??? Amy's response: plays in puddles!
Q: My mom is as pretty as a???? Amy's response: lipstick
Q: My mom looks pretty when she?? Audrey's response: gets married
Q: My mom is smart, she even knows?? Audrey's response: numbers

I will certainly cherish these forever!

That brings us up to date. School is out in 2 weeks. Emma's birthday is on Memorial Day this year. She'll be 8!! We will be having her "Hannah Montana" party the day after school is out. Other than that, our summer plans include a week vacation at the beach!

There is never a dull moment at this house....I'm sure I'll have plenty to blog about soon! Until then, keep checking in!!
