:: my baby girl getting ready to ride the mower with me...strapped very tightly to my chest in a front pack ;) .... how cute does she look in her protective ear wear!

:: and HUGE happy...our girl is finally drinking out of a straw after weeks of working with her with the honey bear cup! she went straight from nursing to the straw....she looks like such a big girl :)

:: cute little limber legs in tiny little leggings :)

:: magpie looking like she thinks she is such a big girl driving (okay actually just sitting) on her sister's gator ;)

:: our girl and one of her MANY cute little 'i know i'm a stinker but aren't i so cute?' facial expressions...

:: watching my big girl do the itsy-bitsy-spider with my baby girl :)

:: our drive home from the 'city' as the girls say....the beautiful green fields make me feel closer to heaven...

....i'll take being a country mouse over a city mouse anyday ;)

:: my big girls celebrating earth day at school....

:: the AMAZING art my big girls brought home last week from school....i {heart} their art teacher....how can you not smile when you look at that great big can of soup painted by one very artistic rayley beth?

:: our cute little 'portico'....(fancy schmancy word for tiny porch)... my jeffrey has been working on :)
