Our little sparkler...

Happy 4th of July! Miss Sarah had a blast playing with all the kids and drawing with sidewalk chalk! I hope everyone had a happy day with friends and/or family.

Ethan's Birthday

Last Saturday was Ethan Sander's first birthday! So, we headed to the park to join all the other babies and to watch Ethan smear cake all over his face. (I'm sorry I didn't include a picture). Sarah had so much fun exploring the grounds of the park. She was eager to take anyone by the hand who was willing to walk with her! She was red-faced and a sweaty mess. We were instructed to wear t-shirts from our favorite college because Ethan's parents are determined to make him a LSU tiger. I didn't have a short-sleeved North Georgia shirt for myself or Sarah- so we had to go with her Aggie-gear! Dad, you would have been proud!! Here's our little aggie:

These are a few of Sarah's favorite babysitters: Kevin & Jan Johnson with their son Jeff.

Here's Sarah and her friend Jillian (and her mom, Shellie)

Here's a pic of all the mom's and babies trying to get together for a picture! It was a challenge!!!
After Ethan's party we headed to a graduation party, but the day would not have been complete without sending Jeff Pickering off to a GREAT graduation! Sarah's loves Mr. Jeff! (Jeff is headed to A&M in the fall!!!) Congrats Jeff!

Getting Ready for the Summer

Oh YES! We've had our 1st birthday, so now I can officially sit in my new forward-facing car seat! WAAAHOO! Check out that hair. (She loves to pull out her little pony tails that Mommy puts in her hair!)

Miss Spaghetti Face. (I think every parent has a picture of their child eating something REALLY messy!

OK summer has HIT in TX. It's only the beginning of the HOT weather. I really like summertime! Everyone seems a lot more relaxed. I saw a commercial the other day that said, "Kids own the summer." I think summertime brings out the kid in everyone! We bought Sarah a kiddy pool. She loves to SPLASH, but most of the time she just likes to crawl in and out of the pool. Here are a few pics of her first big adventure. We were quickly joined by Ethan Sanders and Kathy Pickering. They just had to come play, too.

Happy Birthday Sarah Grace!

Sarah's first birthday was so much fun! I had this wild idea that we would have Nathan's family & my family come together for the celebration. Well...our house isn't big enough so, we all had to stay in a beach house. It worked out great (despite a few inconveniences- like not being able to put toilet paper in the toilets or one of the shower rooms not having light, but instead skylights!?) Anyway, the weather was amazing! It totally poured the morning of the party, then the Lord sent a MIGHTY wind and dried up everything just in time for the party. The wind died down and we enjoyed a cook-out with our friends and family!

Here's the Birthday Girl...

...the cutest FIRST birthday cake you've ever seen!

Here's a pic of Nathan's family that came. (Grandpa & Grandma Mitterling, Nathan's parents, and one of his brothers, Andrew)

Sarah and MM's parents- Grandmommy & Grandaddy.

Daddy & Mommy with the birthday girl!

I can not believe she is already ONE!

Alabama Update

Sarah and I have enjoyed our trip to Alabama over the past -almost- two weeks. We've shopped, seen old college friends, and just enjoyed time w/Grandmommy & Grandaddy! Here are a few pics from the past week... These are my new PJ's.

Here's a pic of the flowers Nathan sent us to enjoy while we are away. I LOVE YOU HONEY!

Sarah got to ride in her first forward-facing car seat! She looks like SUCH a big girl! It's time for us to make the purchase!

Look at that cute girl!

We'll be home soon!

This is Sarah's new face. She loves to open her mouth as wide as she possibly can. We just happened to catch it tonight during bath time. She's hilarious!!
