My special cousin, Faye, passed away this morning about 5:30 A.M. Our hearts are heavy because her physical presence will be missed and for her family who loves her so very much. Faye was special in so many ways – she was a wonderful hostess if you ever had the privilege of visiting in her home, always had a deep faith, cared about others over herself, worked like crazy, loved her kids and grandkids with a vengeance, and could make you laugh like nobody else ever could. She will DEFINITELY be missed!

So Much for Spring - It's SNOWING!

Since I took this picture my car is now covered with SNOW! I love it. I know Luke is having a fit since he can only see the snow from his classroom. This is the first snow I have seen in two years - I was in New Orleans last Winter. I hope it snows enough for Luke and Rylee to play in it for a little while.............

Waiting for Spring!!

So sweet!!!

Parker was out helping Uncle Russ wash cars on a beautiful day!

Uncle Russ and Rylee acting silly!

Dad, please give me a cookie!

Last basketball game of the year!

Parker is getting even cuter (if that’s possible). He loves to grin and talk back to you. Ashley said she weighed him yesterday and he weighs about 14 pounds. Doubled his weight so far! I’m sure that has nothing to do with the fact that he wants to eat 24/7. He likes to eat a little bit and then wait a couple of hours and then eat again and again and again!

Rylee surprised her Mom this week! Ashley stepped out of the bathroom for ONE second to get a hair bow for Rylee and when she got back she saw all of this beautiful blonde hair on the floor. Ashley said she wanted to cry. Rylee sat there with her head down and knew what she did was really bad and Ashley just stood there with her hands over her eyes. It wasn’t really too drastic – one big chunk out of the side. Anyway, I have a feeling she won’t do that again. She didn’t get in trouble – she just knew it made her Mom very sad! I’m thinking I hope that is the worst thing she ever does to her hair!!!!!!!!

Fantastic update on Baylee!!! She had surgery on Thursday to remove the last small tumor in her abdomen and has been declared "cancer free." She still will be heading to Fort Worth in March for her stem cell transplant so keep praying - the prayers are working!!!
BIG news for Erin! She has accepted a job as a Nurse Extern at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis in the NICU. After graduation she plans to work there full time. She loves working with babies and I think she will be a wonderful and caring nurse. I can see her getting attached to every single one of the babies there! GREAT job Erin…..
