Taylor and Seth had the BEST time tonight!! The Daddy/Daughter Dinner and Dance put on by our church has been the topic of conversation for the last 2 weeks. The assignment was to dress up as famous Dads and Daughters and Tay picked Elvis and Lisa Marie Presley! How cute is that?? From what I heard, they had a great time and Seth was asked several times to sing a little something...but, unfortunately, the voice was not included with the costume so all we heard sounded like nuthin but a hound dog...cryin all the time! :) Thank you, uh thank you very much...

The Judds came over to play today!! While Micah and I were engrossed in conversation, Reagan, Alyx, Jace, and Jacob were free to entertain themselves however they saw fit. At one point, while the older kids were outside riding scooters, we realized that Jacob (1 year old) was being WAY too quiet upstairs. Micah went to investigate and this is what she found!! Notice the stream of chocolate drool, sucker still in hand, and all of those EMPTY candy wrappers! Too funny!! Needless to say, Jacob found the Halloween candy bowl and decided to help himself! Talk about party-til-you-drop!! :)

Halloween was a lot of fun this year! Taylor wanted to be something 'freaky' so she came up with a spider countess. Reagan wanted to be a witch with a green face "but don't worry mom, I'm a nice green witch" she says. And Alyx thinks she's Spider Man....really. This all started long before Halloween so, really, we didn't have a choice with the costume!
We spent the afternoon at our church's Trunk-or-Treat where all 3 girls won a cake on the cake walk and the cake that we entered in the decorating contest won 1st place!! (forgot to take a picture!). We are still enjoying those prizes! Then we went Trick-or-Treating with some friends of ours around the neighborhood where the girls scored WAY too much candy so they had to split it with mom! :)

So last week Alyx decided to chop her hair off.... I was on the phone and Taylor came into the room with a horrified look on her face and a handful of hair. She told me she found Alyx upstairs with scissors. grrrrrr! Her hair had FINALLY reached the point where it was all the same length and growing beautifully... then she decides to give herself a mullet. I did the best I could to give her a stylish VERY short bob, but she still has a "baldspot" behind her left ear. So to remedy the problem, I made some obnoxious, big flower clips to cover it up! After putting in her favorite pink one, she wanted me to take her picture. It was so cute because the petals on the flower kept tickling her ear and she couldn't stop laughing!! Oh the good things that come from catastrophes!

Reagan had a great 4th birthday!! We celebrated with everything bouncy: hop-scotch, leapfrog, balloon bop, and bunny hop. We topped it all off with Reagan getting her very own mini trampoline! She has been wanting one forever...and mom and dad finally came through. But now she tells us that since she has a 'baby' trampoline, it needs a great big 'daddy' one to keep in the back yard....oh great! We will have to wait and see on that one! :) Happy Birthday Boo-Boo!

On one of the way too few nice days we've been randomly having, we decided to go fishing!! The girls have been dying to go for months but it's always been too cold!! We had a blast...even Alyx is a pro at casting now! Although we only caught one itty-bitty fish, we had a great time feeding the ducks and playing with wormies!! (Alyx and Reagan gave them all names). Taylor was so cute as she tried to teach her little sisters what she learned last year. It was a much needed day of relaxing and hanging out with my family!

I couldn't be more proud of Taylor, Bryn, and Ashley. This morning they decided they wanted to do a Lemonade Stand. Perfect spring time idea! I said go for it. They made posters, calculated prices, and even made up a song to sing to attract customers! " Lemonade (clap, clap, clap) Crunchy ice (clap, clap, clap) We'll pour it once (clap, clap, clap) We'll pour it twice (clap, clap, clap) The third cup is free, free, free...then you'll have to pee, pee, pee." Catchy right?? (Oh brother) anyway...I asked them what they were saving money for. They unanimously decided that they wanted to raise money for charity. Of course, my heart swelled. When I asked them what kind of charity, they said they wanted to help sick kids. So Vanderbilt Children's Hospital won the vote. They were outside from around 1:00 to 6:00 in the evening and made a whopping $39!! It might as well been a fortune...they were so excited. I found the address to mail donations to and each of the girls wrote a little letter explaining why they wanted to do this. They expressed how they wanted to raise money for sick children so that they could get better and be able to spend more time with their families. Yes, I cried... They had so much fun doing this and I am so so so proud of them! Way to go girls!

I've been meaning to post this forever...
Seth's unit was activated last month to go help with all of the damage caused by the huge ice storms they had up in Kentucky. No electricity, water, heat, food, gas, etc for weeks because of it. So scary. Anyway, a local paper did an article on how the military firefighters saved the day because all of the local stations just couldn't handle the magnitude of the job. There were several fires caused by people trying to stay warm or by the electricity trying to come back on and sparking. It was NO fun to get a phone call one Friday night saying Seth had to report by 7:00am the next morning and they didn't know how long it would take. Luckily, it only took 2 weeks before he was home again. I don't know what I would do if he ever got deployed overseas...cross my fingers. Seth got some really great pictures of the ice on the trees...I will post them as soon as I can. I think this was a really neat experience for him being able to help those people and even got to fight some real fires! ( Nothing ever happens in Franklin :) It was tough having him gone but I am so proud he was able and willing to help!
