i love sunny days!

Thursday Feb. 25 mr. Kale was born. Shannon had him at 9:38 p.m. He was 7lbs 7oz, 19.5in. She had a great delivery. Saturday we went to see him...He is precious!
Mr. Kale Young Lowe
Then since the weather was so nice we had to get out & enjoy it! We went to the park. Piper had so much fun. She was really just loving being outside. She went all over the place!
She likes these things. Beau & I would help her accross it. She said she was being a monkey & was making monkey sounds.

PRAYERS!!!

Danny Burton is in the hospital & not doing well! Needs prayers bad!!!

Lawson & Shannon are also at the hospital in the process of having Kale. Please pray for them as well. Little Kale will be here soon!!!

I could blog about this girl everyday!

Piper likes to scoot her chair up to where ever she wants & helps herself to whatever she wants.
Yesterday this little girl scooted her chair up to the kitchen counter & helped herself to I don't know how many pieces of candy. This is when I caught her. I told her to stay out of it & that she wasn't getting dessert at church that night. (she didn't either)
A few minutes later here she was again. Right before church. I stoped her this time.

my birthday

was great yesterday. Beau & Piper got me a cast iron skillet. They also took me to eat at Market Place. It was a perfect day for soup & salad! Thursday my sweet friend is taking me to get a pedicure for my birthday. I am so excited!!!

While we were eating lastnight Piper looked at me across the table & randomly said " I love you". It seriously melted my heart! Then a few minutes later she looks at me & says "happy birthday mommy". She is absolutley the greatest thing I have ever seen!

She loves Bow's in her hair!

When she has her jacket on, it has to be zipped or buttoned!

I would do anything for this little girl!

Everyday I tell her how much Jesus loves her although I can't even phathom it.

SUPRISE!

Yesterday my mom asked if I wanted to go see my grandma. I said sure. We all got ready & went there. To my suprise my whole family was there to suprise me for my birthday!

It was a great suprise! I am blessed to have my family. Before my aunt passed away my brother & uncle had planned to come up for the wknd. Aunt Jane said the original plan was that they were all going to show up at my house & camp out in my living room. That would have been great but I know things happen. I am thankful for them all. Beau got the cake & took it to my aunts while I was still in Texas.

Piper & Michael (cousins)

Texas-aunt Becky's funeral

Got back from Texas lastnight. I am so thankful I went to that funeral. It was so great seeing everyone. Even though I don't get to see that family very much it's like we never missed a beat. I love them so much! It was sad not seeing my sweet aunt Becky. I cought myself at times looking for her. It just didn't seem right. Hank & I stayed the night with my cousin Amberly & her husband Bobby. It is sad thinking about my uncle Mike, cousins Tonya, David, & Amberly, their kids Houston, Garrett, Cesily, Delayney, & Shane. I hate what they are going through. I know how it hurts my heart missing aunt Becky I can't imagine what they are going through. I don't know how many times they hugged & squeezed me. It was heartbreaking seeing them so upset. I am praying for them all the time. I love my great uncle Mike. What a sweetheart he is & my aunt Becky was a very special person. Her grandkids had her a dr. pepper wreath made at the funeral. Everyone knows how aunt Becky loved her dr. pepper & if she had one left you didn't take it. If you did you never did it again. Just like Tonya said at the funeral. If aunt Becky loved you, she LOVED you.

I have to say that since my great aunt Becky passed away I have just been thinking about how God has this big plan for us & how short this life really is. I miss her so much. I haven't gotten to see her that much lately b/c she lives in Texas. She was wonderful! Only 56. I just think about how she came to mine & my brothers high school graduations & my wedding. It hurts that I will not get to see her again in this world. She will be greatly missed! It's times like these when you know who your real friends are. Not the ones that want you to just be there for them but the ones that will be there for you too..... Anyway, I am still blessed. Sad too. I miss my beautiful aunt.
* We had a great wknd to ourselves. Piper was at mimi's. We watched Valentines Day. Good movie. We were very suprised b/c we didn't think it would be good at all. It was actually pretty funny. We also went & watched The Blindside. It was GREAT!!
I got a new (big) crockpot for Valentines Day, some chocolate, & a flower. Beau got the movie Couples Retreat, chocolates, & a coffee mug. He has been wanting one. Although I ended up with it b/c he thought it was girly. :) We got Piper a couple of shirts & some candy.
* Piper had lots of fun at mimi's. Of course. Michael Wayne was there so you know she loved that too. Tonight Piper was so sleepy! She was sitting on the potty & brushing her teeth. Beau asked if she was done. She said very dramatically & upset " no, I am trying to do a good job." So cute. We enjoyed our alone time but so glad to have our girl back!
*Thank you to uncle PJ & Brittney for the sweet Valentines Day dog & card! Piper was very excited! She loved it!!
This picture is at my wedding (obviously). My beautiful aunt Becky is the one to the far right.

Happy Stinkin Valentine's Day!

Got a call from my mom today. I was at taco bell eating. My aunt Becky passed away. She had knee surgery on thursday caught pnemonia & died today.

I hate to say that I don't know if this year could get worse but.....

My family needs prayer. She is my grandma Baker's sister. She lives in the Fort Worth area. She had 2 daughters (one that is my age) & one son (who is currently serving in Iraq). She also had 5 grandkids. I called my grandma & I was amazed at how strong she was being. I know she is going to have her moments but she is such a strong women.

little sweethearts

We didn't do a lot for Valentines day. The kids got to decorate a cupcake with sprinkles & m&m's & we did a valetine's craft. They also had a little goody bag with some candy & bubbles.
We did it 2 days since I didn't have them all together this week.




I told them to put their heads together & Dean put his head on Piper's shoulder. Sweet :)





Simple but fun! The kids love it!

Newlywed game & middle school

Tonight in the middle school Grant spoke on how middle school students shouldn't date. It was a good lesson & most middle school students don't agree. When they get our age I am sure they will. For the game time tonight they had some of us adults come up & play the newlywed game. It was Beau & I, Tim & Dayna Lawerence, Grant & Rachel, & the Tedfords.

Beau & I won!!!

Here were the questions..The guys had to write them down on paper while we were in a different room.

1. Besides Beau who do I think the sexiest man is? Well, duh! Since I watched Dear John I haven't shut up about Channing Tatum. CORRECT!

2. Boxers or briefs? Briefs. CORRECT!

3. What is my dream vacation spot? Hawaii. CORRECT!

4. What is my favorite kind of food? Mexican. CORRECT!

5. When & where was our first date? Sept. 04 Market Place CORRECT!

6. George Clooney or Brad Pitt? I said George Clooney but Beau said Brad Pitt. INCORRECT!
(that was a hard one. I could have went with either one but I was thinking I should have went with Brad Pitt)

Beau did great! Some questions were just too easy! 5 out of 6 is great!

By the way, I don't think it is a good idea for middle schoolers to date. One reason is b/c you date people with the intention of marraige. You don't know who you are going to marry when you are in middle school & I would say at least 95% don't know who they are going to marry when they are in highschool.
Kids don't understand how easy it is to get your heart broken. It happens so much! When you are dating most of your focus goes on that person then you're not putting your focus on the Lord.

We've just been

Playing & cleaning today. Trying to get the house clean.
Then we painted Piper's finger nails. She loves having her fingernails painted! Pink of course. That is her favorite. Everything has to be pink!
Bout to have to get ready for church. Well, didn't get alot done. O well. Great day!

Monday

Piper & Beau monday at McDonald's for lunch :) It snowed again!
Beau & I found this. Piper had all her little 7 dworfs & put them on the correct dworf in this book. She loves these things! Plays with them all the time & knows them by heart.

Remember this guy?

Johnny Carson... I used to watch him when I was really little. I was hooked on Johnny Carson. I remember when he wasn't on once & my mom told me he was on vacation because I was so upset.
Yesterday at Wal-Mart I got The Best of Johnny Carson for $5.00! I am so excited!
Over 23 hours of Johnny!

Super Bowl Pary 2010

Our lifegroup got together lastnight for our 2nd annual Super Bowl party at the Green's house. The New Orlean Saints vs. the Indianapolis Colts. I hated not having a team to root for. Usually there is a team I like or dislike. My cowboys & vikings were out so I didn't care too much. I have always like Peyton Manning but didn't mind the Saints winning b/c they have never won a super bowl. I like Drew Brees too. The Saints won!
