Sleeping Beauty

Savannah's been in a toddler bed for a couple weeks now. She's doing great! She stays in her bed and calls us when she wakes up. "Mommy, morning time! I awake." Is usually what I hear around 7:45am. 
 The other day I snuck in her room to wake her from nap time. She was sleeping so sweetly! Of course, she was wearing a princess dress, had Sausage her dog, and her favorite book "The Mitten" in bed with her. 
She's at such a fun age. Savannah asks "Why?" to everything. She learning how things work and wants do to everything on her own!
I love this sweet girl!

Mimi's Visit

The day my mom flew in, the ground was covered with snow. During her visit, Spring arrived here in NOVA!
 We took a walk one day and enjoyed all the flowers blooming.
 Playing at the park!
 Savannah's a "big girl". She wants to do EVERYTHING on her own! Most days Savannah is wearing a dress and loves to be a princess!
 Maddie is growing into such a young lady! She's a huge help to me around the house. She also LOVES riding her bike, scooter, roller skating, and playing with friends. 
 Savannah gave Mimi lots of loving!
 My mom was so helpful while she stayed for 3 1/2 weeks! We were thankful for the cooking and cleaning she did, but most of all we just enjoyed being with her.
Our tulips came in so pretty this Spring.

The last couple weeks have been very fun with my mom and dad visiting. They've been super helpful with the girls and getting our house back into shape and ready for Spring. I'm so thankful I've been able to go to church the last two Sundays and feel much better!
 The girls and my parents made a rainbow cake.
 Savannah loves her Papa!
 There's the finished product! Such a fun treat.
 A couple days before Easter we got a package in the mail from none other than Great Aunt Dottie. She's 100 years old and never misses sending her nieces special gifts for each holiday. She did this for my mom and Aunt Jennifer when they were little girls, for me and Melissa, and now our girls. Since Aunt Dottie knew I was sick, she bought the girls Easter dresses! So sweet.
 Here they are with the daffodils. Savannah's eating on her way to church!
Papa and Mimi were able to spend Easter with us. That afternoon the Leaches came over and BROUGHT us a wonderful dinner. We had a great time visiting with them.
