We seem to be too busy these days. I feel at times I don't have time to sit and play with my children. I am busying myself with too many other projects, whether it be getting ready for vacation, redecorating the house, calling pest control, cleaning, laundry and anything else you can imagine.
My heart breaks when I read a friends blog who has just lost her little girl. I sit, wonder and pray for her and her family and can't imagine what she is going through. Please, pray for this family, if you're interested in her blog, you can go to Atchison family from my blog.
Another good friend (Amy Cook, she's really neat you should read her blog too), one day they will be too old to ask you to play and we'll wish we had played with them when they were asking us to. There are so many times that I've told Hudson I would play with him later because I was having to cook, unload the dish washer, iron or some other thing that's not nearly as important as he is.
Todd and I have really been missing Birmingham lately, not the city itself, but our great friends there. We have been here a little over 2 1/2 years now and still feel homesick. We miss all of you from there so much and wish we could be living our lives with you and your families.
This was a quick update of me and what's going on right now.

We took a boat ride and saw these ridiculously huge jellyfish. And, there were tons of windsurfers out there. What were they thinking?

I haven't been on here in a while. I thought this summer would slow down for a while, but we've only gotten busier. This is good, but tiring at times - I must confess. The kiddos started swim lessons about three weeks ago. These lessons are every day for 10 minutes, for 6 weeks. H.R. is doing so good, he is swimming underwater and rolling onto his back for a rest time. I am completely amazed because last year he wouldn't get off the steps and he had to have a life jacket and floaties on. I must have instilled some fear in him. C.G. is swimming, but cries the intire time, except when she's underwater. It's really sad! I will try to get some pictures of them up soon. These lessons are mainly for learning survival skills. If you're interested in knowing more about these lessons, you can go to www.infantswim.com

H.T. and I had so much fun decorating our Easter eggs. Well, actually Todd and I finished them.
This is a picture of me and H.T. at the zoo on the train. We had so much fun with him that day. Todd's mom was keeping C.G., so it was just the three of us. We all had a blast!

Why would Jesus die for me? This has been on my mind all day. I know the answer and the scriptures to back it up. I am no one special, yet God would let His son die, so that I may spend eternal life with Him. Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice.
As a mom, I would never let one of my children die for someone else's sin, especially people I don't know or that don't know me. But that is what God did, He let His son die for those who persecuted Him and called Him names, for those of us who did not love Him, yet He loved us.
He is risen! Indeed!

This past Saturday we had snow! H.T. had a blast in it, he played with his trucks, ran around and was covered with it. We would bring him in for a while to put his clothes in the dryer and make sure his hands weren't getting wet. C.G. loved it, but mommy couldn't stay out there too long. I'm not a fan of cold weather, but I must say, the snow was fun for a day. The weather is so crazy here, which I'm sure it is everywhere. Today, our high is in the 70's. It's great! I'm getting spring fever and ready to go shopping for some spring clothes. Sorry, I haven't had an update on hair tips in a while. I'll try to start that again.

This is Lisa, my best friend from childhood and our children. My little one is sacked out. They were all waiting very patiently for the parade to begin.

I tried to change my background and I have now botched my blog completely. I will be testing and trying a few things.

I am so excited to tell you all that I had my second big star siting. Woo Hoo! Last night Todd and I went on a date, which by the way was wonderful. We went out to eat at Wolfgang Puck (delicious) and to a movie. We saw 27 dresses, which by the way is an adorable movie, if you're like me and love a good girlie movie.
So back to my star siting. I saw Brad Paisley, Kimberly Williams-Paisley and their son Huck. I actually spoke to them this time. I played it really cool and didn't overreact. It's exciting to see someone famous, but I must always remind myself, that God is their maker and they are really no different than any of us. He can sing really well and she can act really well. Which I can do neither of.
Oh and an update on my closet. I've gotten rid of 4 huge garbage bags so far. I still have a little more to go through. Thanks for your comments by the way, I strongly urge you all to go through your closets. It's so nice when you go to your closet and know that you would like to wear anything in it.

I chose this name for my blog because I love the color pink and I'm from the good ole' state of Mississippi. If you didn't know, the state flower for Mississippi is the magnolia. Therefore, that's how the name Pink Magnolia's came to be.
