pictures continued

We've had some great weather days and of course, Evy just has to go outside. She loves to run around and really is an outdoor girl. We went down to the barn to see the horses so here is Evy carrying her bucket of feed. She knows what to do! Mama's little helper!

and we had to go sit on the big rocking chair - too cute

Okay, this was hilarious. She wanted to go down to the pond but if Gidget hadn't caught her, she'd have run straight into the water! She thought it was like the beach! No kidding, she was running straight for it.

me and Gidget at the "Hoe Down" Valentine's dance. So much fun! ahh to feel young again...

Lots of Pictures

Okay, this will be picture overload! First of all, pictures from Women of Faith National Conference in San Antonio! First is Jim Caviezel (aka Jesus), Next is Mandesa on stage - she was awesome! Jill and I in front of the stage (we had floor seats, woo hoo!), then me and Anthony Evans (I also know him as Falling Star!!) and last Jill with Mandesa. WOF Rocks!!!!

Okay so first of all, you may be interested to know that Gidget is pregnant again. She is due Sept 27th and right now is very very sick. But after the sickness passes in another month she'll be happy! Evy is doing great, although she is aware that something is going on since her mama isn't playing with her as much. She has followed Gidget to the bathroom a few times and holds her hand while she pukes - so sweet! She really does get cooler each month. She has now mastered the sign language for drink, but it no longer means water. When she signs for drink we have to ask if she wants milk, water or juice. She says "wah" or "joooce" and its precious. These days, if she doesn't get exactly what she wants she throws a fit. Mom says we are her puppets, desperate to do what she wants! I guess thats sort of true, except when what she wants is something she can't have or do. She's talking a lot these days. Some of it is still babble which is cute, but she mimics us when she's in the right mood. A while back she came into the laundry room where I was and she saw the vacuum and went to it, petted it and said in a very loving voice "vacooom". So cute! I've been trying to teach her the abc's but once we get past c everything becomes the same word which sounds a bit like 'eck'. She loves music and the first song she learned was This Little Light of Mine and she holds up her little finger as her light. So she learned that when she held up that finger we would sing and now she holds up the finger but doesn't necessarily want us to sing this little light of mine. So when we start she responds with "no!" and shakes her head so we move on through the songs until we get to the one she wants. She likes the itsy bitsy spider, Jesus loves me and if you're happy and you know it. When any music comes on - the radio or the tv or the cell phone - she immediately starts to move her head, bend her knees and clap her hands. I am also on a new diet which I call the Evy diet. She eats half of what I eat! I give her her own food but noooo she wants what I'm eating! She has taken a liking to the apple limeade at Sonic although she likes to make a sour face when she gets a sip because it makes me laugh. She has learned that she has teeth and that she can smile with them, so she'll give us that toothy grin when she knows she is being silly. Can you tell I love this child? I can't wait til the other one comes along - I know he/she will probably be completely different!! Okay, enough about Evy.

I am currently in San Antonio for the Women of Faith National conference and it ROCKS!! I love it. Pictures will be posted!!!
