So Here goes....
My little Annie is growing up so fast. Just the other day she came up to me with all this jewelry on. She put it on all by herself, and look at those hands. She is such a girl.
Seeing as how this girl is 1 1/2 years old, she is at the age where she loves getting into stuff. She is great most of the time, but occasionally when I am not paying attention to her she gets into trouble. By trouble I mean pulling out things she knows are no touch. For example, the following pic is of Annie enjoying some hazelnut flavored coffee she found in the pantry. Yes she was eating the grinds of coffee. She made a pretty mess of it too. Of course I couldn't get upset at a face like that. I actually just laughed at her because she looked so cute, and I thought it was pretty funny. Hey! If this is the worst mess she has made thus far, we are not doing too bad I think.
Playing at her friend Rev's house in the sandbox with Rev, Brooklyn, Judah, and Will. She loves playing with sand and rocks and dirt, yet she is girly too, I love the balance she has.
She is finally getting to a fun age where she does random things that are so funny but she has no idea she is being funny. In other words she is not doing it on purpose for attention yet. Case in point, she tried putting her swimsuit on the other day and this is as far as she got........ So cute right?
Annie has recently become VERY attached to her baby doll. Before she was hardly aware of it, but now she loves taking it everywhere and caring for it. It happened in like a weeks time. it's so cute, and I hope that this will help when her new baby brother arrives. Maybe she will want to help me care for him.
The Lord has truly been providing for our family and I am so thankful and I never want to take his blessings and generosity for granted. For a while now I have been needing a new car. We sold my Nissan Altima a while back so I have been driving Scott's truck around town since before Christmas. Since Scott works as a salesman and got a company vehicle, we decided to sell his truck also and try to find a family vehicle. After searching for a couple of weeks i'm so excited to be a proud new owner of a 2007 GMC Acadia, which is what I was hoping we would be able to get. God is so kind to provide a good amount of money from the truck, and some money in savings to afford such a nice vehicle. So goodbye 'Big Red' and hello 'not yet named Acadia'. I'm so excited!!!! This car will be great because I won't have to climb up into the car to strap the kids in, and I won't have to bend over to strap them in either. It has everything Scott and I were hoping to have in a vehicle. he wanted All Wheel Drive, and I wanted a sun roof. We both wanted leather seats (for easy clean-up) and captains chairs in the second row. An added blessing was the dvd player, we didn't really need that but i'm sure it will come in handy on family vacations with the kids down the road. I know I loved watching movies while traveling, heck I still do. We had to drive five hours away to go pick it up, and Scott's mom watched Annie for us so we had a nice little alone time together. We picked this up on Saturday and drove home only to have to leave it in the drive-way for a week and a half because on Sunday morning we left for a camping trip with some of my family up the Northeast Coast for camping, which is where I will end this post. Coming up we will share our northeast coast adventures with you. Stay tuned....
