Rocky Top


David loves Tennessee Vols football so much that I just had to make him a pillow to go with the rest of the orange/Vols stuff he has collected. Now this fall he can bring this out for the games. I'm sure he won't be including the doll, but I thought you could see how big the pillow is with something else in the picture.

The Bunny came early!


Kassidy and Kourey received their Easter gifts from Grandma Mary and Grandpa Jerry today. They were so excited that we let them open it early. As you can see from the pictures, they love it! The pirates have invaded!

Kourey's Haircut


When we returned from our Spring Break trip, Kassidy and I went to pick up the dogs and David wanted to get his hair cut. So, we dropped him and Kourey off and went to pick up Keita and Daisy. When we returned, we found that Kourey had quite a bit of her hair cut off....she wanted a haircut, too. I wasn't thrilled with it at first, but after awhile, I decided that it looked much better than before. It looks too grown up, though, but healthier. She loves it.



Kassidy got her hair trimmed the next day. She has been growing it out for Locks of Love. She has 14 inches available now and the gal cutting her hair said that it was in great shape and would be a terrific donation because her hair is so thick. Perhaps this summer, before all the swimming starts, Kassidy will be ready to donate. She has been growing it for so long...it will be hard to see her with short hair again, but I'm proud of her for what she wants to do.

Job Update - David

David finally accepted a job at USF. I think he would rather be in a federal position, but for now it at least will pay the bills, give us a discount on medical insurance, and allow us to carpool together. At least I can stick around and work on my Master's some more. I just recently received my grad certificate that I finished this Fall.


Kourey is happy to be back at La Petite full time, but I'm not too thrilled about picking Kassidy up from school every day. It's such a long drive down there. I'm pretty sure that we will be picking a new school for the girls this Fall. Either they will go to the school near our house, or the one on campus. Time to check it all out. Kourey will be starting kindergarten this Fall, so things will be changing again.

We just got back from a 5 day trip through Georgia. We went to Helen, GA and visited a Model Railroad Museum (that is where the family picture above was taken), Babyland General (home to the Cabbage Patch Doll), the GA Aquarium, and Wild Adventures. It was a lot of fun. We drove over 1100 miles. Yikes! Wonder what we should plan for next Spring Break?

Now open for viewing...

After starting this blog for a class, I never had any intentions of letting anyone else view or adding to it. But, I thought I would give it a shot and send this out with my web page. Now friends and family can chat with me about anything. So, give it a try?
