I love the look on Emory's face...

I've decided it's impossible to get a good picture...

Both of them about to lose it

Ella is D-O-N-E and Emory is doing what her sister does...

Ready for bed

Such a good helper

She makes me smile

So does the chubby face...

Memorial Day 2011

We had a great day on the river with friends for Memorial Day. It was hot, but that's summertime in Mobile! It looks like a lot of napping took place...

River Fun

Now that summer is here, we are having so much fun on our new boat. Ella thinks she is a mermaid... Even if she is a Dog River Mermaid...

Fun Times

We took Emmecat swimming for the first time today. She wasn't the biggest fan, but I'm sure she will eventually become a little fish like her sister... Swimming wore Ella out... So much that she fell asleep standing up. I always have thought she had narcolepsy because she falls asleep doing anything....eating, playing, etc. But standing? This is a new one....

What's Going On...

We have been busy around the Craker House....

  • Emory turns 3 months tomorrow....really....where does time go?

  • Emory is sleeping all night, PRAISE THE LORD! She gets up around 5:30 or 6, but we will take it! :)

  • Ella is not going to school anymore so it's me and my girls all day everyday...keeping a 2 year old busy and a 3 month happy is exhausting but I love it!

  • Ella is officially potty trained. I am so proud of my big girl! I have been pushing her to use the potty for a long time and she finally made up her mind, thank goodness!

  • We got a boat! Lots of pictures to come! We took Ella on it this weekend and she loved it! She is definitely a little river rat! Emory probably won't make it on the boat this summer but will make up for it next summer!

Could she be any cuter?

Happily Ever After

Well my big brother is a married man! The weekend in Douglasville couldn't have been more perfect. Holly was a beautiful bride and the wedding was absolutely perfect. Our whole family is thrilled that Holly is now part of the McBride Clan. Ella was a flower girl and did a great job....we were all a little surprised! It was great to see friends we haven't seen in a long time and get to spend family time together. Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. McBride! We love you!

Fun in the Sun

Cameron and I had a great weekend with the girls! Friday afternoon we headed to the Splash pad in Malbis and Saturday we had a birthday party down at Dauphin Island and decided to make it a day at the beach. I love this time of the year.... It's not so hot that you feel like you can't breathe when you step outside. Everything is turning green and blooming.... I LOVE it! Pretty soon it will be so hot....it's a good thing Ella loves water....of any kind! Here are a few pics from our weekend.
Please continue to keep the storm victims in your prayers. I have had to stop watching the videos and looking at the pictures. I am trying to do my part to help from Mobile. I helped with a clothing drive for kids clothes, Ella's school is taking up supplies to send, and our church did a special offering today. I still don't feel like I am doing my part. I can't imagine losing everything I have or a loved one. So many people I know have lost so much.
