Spring Fever

I was going through the pictures on our camera to update the blog site and found these cute pictures of Gracelyn playing outside. Dad must have taken these one day when I had left for work. I wasn't present for these pictures but they are way cute! (If I was gone and Dad is taking these pictures of Gracelyn then.... Where is Abbe??) We have all had Spring Fever bad and Gracelyn has been dying to play outside. It is nice to see all the kids starting to play outside and all the snow melting away! These were taken March 7, 2009

My own Piano

Since I have become an adult and moved out of my parents house I have wanted my own piano. However, they are not cheap and are so heavy to move that until you have a permanent location you really don't want to get one. I am no concert pianist but I do love to play and sing. One of my dream piano's is the Yamaha Clavinova Digital Piano but they are VERY EXPENSIVE! At this time we don't want to spend money on it. We have other big projects that need to be done first. Gracelyn has been showing an interest in music and I know that we should have a piano at an early age so if she wants to learn we would have it available. Besides, I want one. So Bill informed me that if I found a used piano within a decent price range then I could get one.
I really wanted a Clavinova but after a few days and realizing that a standard piano was my only option to getting a piano now.... I focused on the idea. I began my search on and found a few to go and see. So after seeing a couple I found this one. I believe it was a great deal. Gracelyn has loved plinking on it as well.

Abbe's Hair

Abbe has very unique hair. It has been said that it reminds people of the hair that was on "Troll Dolls"! It likes to stick straight up. Her hair is fine, very blonde, and soft. We don't fight the hair we just let it do it's own thing! It is just part of our Abbe! (Abbe 8 months old)

My new Dining Table

I have been telling everyone about my new dining table and they keep telling me to blog about it. I have never had this nice of a table so it is exciting to have. Our last table the chairs were not very good quality and since we are not "Little" people they were breaking. So I went and found this more "heavy duty table". I like how heavy the chairs are. The table also expands in out to other lenghts. It is 76 inches long and can expand to 96 then out to 114 inches. We got eight chairs with our set in case we have some big party or something! Anyway, here is my new table!

Gracelyn's First "Ponytail"

Gracelyn has not been blessed with an abundance of hair. This is Gracelyn's hair at 2 1/2 years old. It has never been cut. We have just been waiting patiently for it to grow. Mom has enjoyed that fact that when you are in a hurry that her hair has been easy to do. It has taken 2 1/2 years but she now finally wakes up in the morning or from naps with "Bed head". Gracelyn is so Girly and wants desperately to wear the cute hair clips but her hair is very fine and they don't stay in. With this small little ponytail it is a start. I guess I am going to have to finally start styling her hair!
