NO NO, Jesus I Love You

I had to document this before I forgot it. Grace knows she is not suppose to say, or should I say yell "no" to me when I ask her to do something. She said "no" once and I corrected her. She then proceeded to cut her little eyes at me and start singing, No No , Jesus I love you, Jesus I love you, no no. She thought she was being so sneaky and creative by working those no's into a song, that she already sings all the time. I wish I had been able to get it on video, but I didn't want to encourage this as a new version.

Pa and the Fire Trucks

Grace's grandfather (Pa) is a firefighter and also drives the crash and fire trucks. We were able to go on a private tour of the fire station and Grace was able to sit in all of the trucks, as well as see the police helicopter. Thank you Pa for soothing her fears and letting her "drive" the trucks. She had so much fun and can't wait to do it again!

Build A Bear

Back in December, Grace built her very first "Build A Bear" with Grams and Pops at the mall in Nashville, Tennessee. They originally went in just to watch and look; however, by the end Grace had convinced them that she really "NEEDED" a bear :) I apologize for the poor picture quality, I only had my camera phone on me at the time, but didn't want to miss capturing the event!

Grace picked out the bear she wanted and off she goes to begin the process of stuffing!

But first you must promise to love and take care of your bear (notice Grace's little hand held up saying her promise :)

Stuffing the bear

Notice, Grace is no where in sight. As the lady was stuffing the bear, her hand slipped and the bear slipped off blowing stuffing EVERYWHERE. Needless to say it scared Grace quite a bit and to Grams arms she fled.

The "Accident"

With all of the commotion of the stuffing, I didn't get a picture of Grace kissing the heart and putting it inside the bear.

Sewing up the bear

Giving the bear a bath

She LOVES her bear

The bear came with a Birth Certificate and if at any time she needs a doctor, we can bring it in to one of their stores and they will "fix" her :)

Thank you Grams and Pops!

Project 365

I was introduced to a project called Project 365 last year sometime. It is where you take a picture every day for a year as a way of documenting the "everyday moments" that make up your year/life. I thought this would also be a great way to look at things in a different way and capture things that wouldn't ordinary make a blog post. I started a separate blog just for this in hopes that I can have it printed out at the end of the year as a "scrapbook" of our year. I will still post on this site as well with stories,events and more pictures, but wanted to keep this project separate. The website is called and I linked it on the sidebar as well. We love to receive comments, so please let us know you stopped by and if there is anything in particular you would like to see. Stay tuned as I am way behind on updating this blog and hope to begin to be able to catch up.
