Maggie's First Pigtails!!!

Today I managed to put Maggie's hair in pigtials. I cannot expres how happy and excited I was. I have waited many years to do this to someone's hair!! Of course the boys disliked it and thought she looked silly. Shows you what boys know - haha. She pulled them out about 2 minutes after I put them in but they were cute while they lasted. The last pic shows her getting irritated at me for taking pictures - she was over it!!

Valentine's Day the Florida Way

There is no better way to celebrate Valentine's Day then lots of sunshine, donuts for breakfast, suger cookies for snack, and eating outside by your pool at lunch.

The kids took the day of off school and the weather was perfect - sunny and 78 degrees. They swam and played in the sun. We had a great time enjoying our pool and our sunny Florida weather. It is a good thing too because it is now 65 degrees for the high and won't be warm enough for swimming until next week.

Our New House

We moved from our old house into this new one on February 1st. It is about 3.5 miles from the otehr one, but it is competely different. We now have 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 2,000 square feet. We also have a pool and are on a basin. We are in Love. We are renting with the option to buy and we are very happy here. I just told Mike today that is Florida living at it's best.

The kids just love swimming and use every opportunity to jump right in. I think they are a little crazy as the poool is not heated and is quite fridgid, but they love it. The basin has otters, alligators, bass, water moccasin, and all kinds of fun thing to see. It is so relaxing just to sit on the docck and enjoy the view - especially at night.

Thanks to all who prayed for us as we looked for a house. Thanks for all who helped out with the move. We couldn't have done it without you all.
