"Do I look fashion-ble, mommy?"

Where in the world did she pick up the word fashionable?! I'm not sure I've ever used that word in my life!

The Mighty Mississippi

I think it's safe to say I have a new, favorite restaurant in Natchez. Although Roux 61 is a close 2nd, The Natchez Landing views just can't be beat. The food is delicious and affordable and the view is amazing. On this particular day, we sat outside and enjoyed the nice March weather. What a nice Sunday lunch with my sweet family!

The Nutcracker

I found this post that was sitting in draft on Blogger...oooops, better late than never! What better day to post than Avery's own recital day! Wish us luck....I can't wait!

Today (11/19) Avery went to her first ballet. I noticed on facebook that the Nutcracker ballet was at the theater in Natchez. So, after church Avery & I headed over the river. She did really well and enjoyed watching all of the ballerinas. I explained that she would have a recital in May. She is very excited about that! As you can imagine, I am thrilled too!

Fun Times

I think we need a Chuck E Cheese frequent flyer card! Avery asks to go almost every single day (along with bowling). And weekends that we're in town I try to stop by and let her play. Of course, when you add family & friends to that experience, she is one.happy.girl!

Alicia and Lindsey came to town to do some shopping and met us there with cousins Bram & Layne. Paige came too and Paige is Avery's new favorite "big girl". Alicia is marrying Paige's daddy in September. I'm sure Avery couldn't be happier to gain Paige as a cousin!

Alicia and Avery

Still not too big for a Teletubbies ride!

Avery, Bram, Paige and Layne

She had to go for the green teeth, like the other big kids!

That girl LOVES her some Chuck E.! 

A few weeks later Addison and Alyssa came to town. Avery loves getting to see those girls too. They are so sweet and smart and growing so fast. Their mom and my friend, Dewana, wrote about that day here too. What a fun time!

Park Weather

The weather has been so gorgeous lately, we just can't resist the park...even on a workday! It definitely throws off my schedule a bit, but I think it's absolutely worth it. Nothing like watching your little girl run and smile and play in the beautiful sun with a nice breeze!

Meet the Duggars!

At the end of March, Louisiana held its primary nominations. We got all kinds of visitors. I heard on the radio the Duggars would be in town but I knew I couldn't make it because it was a 15 minute drive and they were there in the middle of the day. Impossible for a girl with a 30 minute lunch break! I mentioned it at work and my coworker insisted that we not pass up our chance to meet them. I think we were their only fans in the office! So, my boss agreed to let me take a longer lunch and off we went! I am so glad we got the opportunity to meet them. They were just as sweet and friendly in real life as what we see on TV!

We parked near the bus and saw kids peeking out...I guess the grandma was on the bus with the smaller kids. We wanted her to decide we looked like nice ladies and let them come out and play!
