Miss Independent

"I want to do it myself"--Anna Ruth (favorite phrase these days)

Easter 2015

It was cold in the weeks leading up to Easter (probably because it was so early this year). But, Easter turned out to be beautiful. Loved celebrating our risen Lord with family!

Cold Winter

Well, it seems to always happen when people complain about no snow...blizzard. 2015! We were out of school/work for a total of 2 weeks. While some said they were having cabin fever, out family loved the extra time spent together. That's the great thing about working at the same college Clint goes to because we were out the same days! 

Nothing like a bowl of fresh snow!
We blew up the blow up mattress and camped out in the living room on the days we were off. I'm not even sure why we ended up doing it but Anna Ruth loved it!

Still here...

It's been some time since my last update but we have been dealing with one sick little girl. With two trips to the ER, our first (and hopefully last) 911 call/ambulance ride, and countless pediatrian/walk-in clinic visits, Anna Ruth has been sick more in the past month than her whole 2.5 years! Seeing your daughter sick and in scary situations has really strained my heart. But, in all of this I am never more thankful that these things have been somewhat minor in comparison to what they could have been. Today, she is feeling good and I am relishing in how great it feels to have her healthy!

View from the Sky

Saturday, Clint was introduced to Neyland Stadium for his first UT game. And, thanks to his dad, we were able to sit in style in Eastman's skybox. Certainly not the typical stadium seating but I think he left a Vol fan!

Sorry UK, this year's game a blow out!
Awesome food, warm seats and a killer view!

Halloween 2014- The Year of Dorothy

It was only a matter of time before I would dress Anna Ruth as a one of my favorite characters- Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Thought I would do it before she started voicing her opinion on outfits. �� We read from the book each night leading up to Halloween so that she would know about Dorothy and her story. I found my old costume from high school at Nanaw's house a few months ago and brought it home. Anna Ruth saw it in the closet and asked if I would wear it so she could be "just like mommy." How could I say no?
And once candy was present, picture taking taking was over!
