We have had lots of family time this winter...glad it is SPRING! Two kids is easier when you can get outside...the girls love being with us so it really does not matter what we are doing outside, just nice not to be inside! We went to Gainesville a few weeks ago to celebrate my grandma's 92nd birthday. Aunt Margaret and Uncle Bill were there; we really enjoyed our weekend of lake side walks, playing with the dogs, park outings, mimi and papaw visits...We celebrated Evie's first birthday last month. Time flies! She is the sweetest, happiest much fun! She'll be the life of the out! She and Amelia adore each other. Every night and even at nap time, they hug and kiss night-night. The Oliver's came up for Evie's birthday weekend and my mom visited the next. Amelia has started ballet. She still talks about gymnastics so I am not sure what we will stick with...time will tell. The girls will not go to school this summer. My friend Lesley, their favorite nanny-friend [auntie lesley] whose been a blessing to our family since Amelia was 2, will work with them until they go back to school part time in August. I suspect we will be spending a lot of time at the pool this summer. Evie loves the water. Amelia loves to swim but not put her head under so we are going to have to work on that this spring and summer. Thomas is paddling the Colorado through the Grand Canyon for 18 days at the end of March-April. We will miss him dearly. Nonnie is coming to stay with us for a week, then we are heading to Folly for a week. We are finally going to meet Bailey, Amanda's daughter who was born Nov. 15.
