Palm Sunday

The children entered our worship service on Sunday morning waving palms and then got a chance to sing in "big" church! The little ones did so good with their song and their signs that went with it. Hallelulia!!!
Don't they look so cute?!?!?!?!
Of course, we ended up at the Mexican restaurant after church for lunch and the girls posed for a cute pic with their daddy while they had a chance!

Easter Egg Decorating

We went over to a friend's house after school today to do some Easter egg decorating! They had a really neat egg spinner that made dying the eggs very simple (and a LOT less messy!). Also, the eggs came out a little tye-dye looking so the girls really liked that! We have definitely gotten a start on decorating eggs since we have FOUR more egg hunts before Easter is all done!
Gracie can do it "all by herself!"

A Parade and a Wedding - Part 2

We had such a great time at the wedding! The girls really enjoyed dancing with (and without) the band and eating the pink (strawberry) wedding cake! They are already making their wish list for what they want when they get married! Watch out Ryan......!!!! But Julia did say that at her wedding she was going to dance with her daddy all night long! So sweet!
The top two pictures are the best attempts that we have of a "family picture" Sure is hard to get all four of us together!
The cutest couple of the night (well, except for the lovely bride and groom)!!!!

A Parade and a Wedding - Part 1

We went to Jackson, MS this past weekend a Lomax family wedding and got to go to the Mal's St. Patty's Parade (3rd largest St Pat's day parade in US!) We had such a good time with the wonderful weather, interesting floats, and the Sweet Potato Queens at the end! Julia and Gracie were on their most adorable behavior and got LOTS of beads!
Sitting on Daddy's shoulder waiting on the parade to start! Kermit (the inflatable balloon version of) was the Grand Marshal!
Waving to the floats trying to get more necklaces!
Look at all of our stash!!!!

Spring Weekend at the Zoo

We took advantage of some early spring weather last weekend and made a day trip to the Memphis Zoo! The girls got to ride the carousel (for the first time there!), saw the new baby giraffe and watched the sea lions perform! All in all it was a great day with some wonderful weather!
Julia posing near the Polar Bear exhibit! She really wanted Gracie to get in with her and to take a picture of them hugging, but Gracie was not as cooperative as Julia wanted her to be! Oh well, maybe next time!!!! :)
