I Love My Life!

Looking at these pictures, I'm just overwhelmed once again by what a wonderful, blessed life I'm living. Do I have it all together? No! Am I, my marriage or my kids perfect? No! What is perfect in my life? God's grace! Praise God I don't have to be perfect or expect perfection from the ones I love. As you can see from the following pictures, we can have so much fun together despite our imperfections and everyday irritations.
Hailey's hair is just getting long enough for me to put it in a pig tail. It usually doesn't stay in for long, but I'm hoping she'll get used to it because she seriously has some wild, crazy hair that needs a little tamin'. I think she looks like "Pebbles: in this shirt.

We wanted to see what Hailey would look like with longer pig tails, so I put my braids on either side of her head and had Michael take a picture. We thought she looked adorable!
Hailey is officially in a toddler bed which is making our nights and nap times a little more interesting. Overall, she's doing pretty good with it though. She was launching herself out of the crib, so into a toddler bed she went. This is a picture of her first night in it. She thought she was hot stuff!

My friend, Leslie, made this hat for me. What a sweet surprise. It is from an American Girls craft book from the early 1900's. It is so warm and soft, I just love it! Thanks, Leslie!

This is Valentine's Day at our house. I started a new tradition last year and the kids love it! One of the local churches does a fundraiser every year where they sell "Cookie Grams" for Valentine's Day. They deliver a dozen different cookies, all wrapped up pretty with a personalized Valentine, right to your door! It makes the kids feel so special. I got them each one this year. Josiah (or should I say, Capt. Redbeard) already had his unwrapped before I could snap the picture. I love holidays because it gives me an excuse to spoil the ones I love. Humm, what should I do for St. Patick's Day for them? We always do corned beef and cabbage. I don't use food coloring, so I can't make anything green. Any ideas, anyone?

I am glad you posted a photo of the hat. I was going to ask if you could as I wanted to see it. I think it looks great on you!

Hailey looks cute with her little pigtail, and I am sure would look cute with longer ones too. I used to do that with Katie - put my hair up to her head to see what she would look like with longer hair. LOL!

The hat looks great! I love Hailey with your pig tails!

I can't believe she's in a toddler bed. I know I need to work on getting Jacob into one, but I just don't have the energy to fight it right now.

Jackie, I love your pics. Hailey is precious with her little pebbles ponytail! You are one pretty lady too! That hat looks great on you.
