Baby Gates...Here we come!!!

Tonight, Josh and I had placed Maggie on the floor while we cleaned up her room and got everything ready for bed. We decided to get down on the floor with her for our nightly prayers, when Maggie popped up and crawled over to us.

Josh ran and got the camera (of course!!), she was a little tired at this point, but you can see her in action...We can't believe it! She is getting so big...Just thought we would share! Hope you love it!

We are so proud of her!

Maggie's At It Again...Prepare to GIGGLE!

So Ms. Maggie is full of herself these days!

She loves to anything. Bless her heart...She is teething so bad, it just breaks our hearts. We are trying to keep her in good spirits as much as possible.

You may not know this, but Dexter Bing (our dog) is Maggie's best friend. She LOVES him. She could be doing something and completely stop and just smile and laugh at Dexter whenever he comes in the room. Dexter loves Maggie equally. It is really sweet!

Turn up your volume and listen to Ms. Maggie giggling her head off at me barking at her...Hope you love it!

Just stop the music to the right and and hit play!

Maggie Daddy Day...

So every now and again, Josh will want to take Maggie to have some "Daddy-Daughter Time." I love it when he wants to do this because Maggie LOVES her daddy and doesn't get to spend as much time with him through the week as I do. Yesterday, I had to run a ton of know those errands were you literally have to run in, know exactly what you need, check out and your done. Well, with Mags, sometimes those 5 minute run-ins, take 30. Josh wanted to spend some time with her at home yesterday while I ran around town...he was a little jealous of all our "Mommy-Maggie Time" I got this week because of Spring Break.

Josh never ceases to amaze me. He was playing around with her yesterday and when I got home, this was these were two of the beautiful pictures he captured of her. I just love his eye for a picture and how he makes Maggie's eyes sparkle.

You can check out the rest of his awesome pictures from his sweet day with Maggie over at his photography blog or by clicking HERE.

Maggie Moo Went To The Zoo...

Today was awesome!

Maggie Moo and I headed over to the Nashville Zoo. We went with Aunt Brea, Anna, Isaac, Luke, Mary Elizabeth, Ms. Kim, McKinley, Jack, and JuJu. We kind of totally invited ourselves, but I am sure glad that we did. We had the best time ever! I love the zoo. The weather was PERFECT for a good day in the sunshine with all the animals.

Isaac and Luke were the best tour guides ever. Seriously, they knew where everything was and all about each animal. They are so smart.

We looked like something off of the Christmas Vacation movie...With 4 adults, 7 children, 3 little ones in strollers, with 3 strollers, 3 diaper bags, 2 car seats...if you needed it, we had it. We used everything from washcloths to q-tips...You gotta love moms...we had it ALL!

You gotta love the animals...

We even ran into some awesome people. I meet Amy, mom to Savannah that I made Georgia the Giraffe for, and Erica, mom to Jazmyne and Parker that I made Ms. Edna, Thelma, and Louise and Parker the VW with Surfboard on top for. It was the coolest thing...I had told Erica in a previous email that it would just FLOOR me to be out in public and see a child wearing a Maggie Moo Original...Beautiful Ms. Jazmyne had her shirt on. She looked so sweet in it and said that she loved it. I have never meet either one of these moms, but from pictures we all recognized each other. How cool is that!!!??!! Erica and Amy, it was great to meet you both and your sweet children. Thank you for supporting my craft!!!

Here is a group shot including everyone but JuJu...

Maggie loved the zoo! We had a great time!

Aunt Molly & Maggie's Day Of Fun...

So, I love Spring Break. Period. It is the best stay-at-home, run errands, be on no schedule what-so-ever, hang out with Maggie, shop with JuJu, head to the zoo with Aunt Brea and the kiddos, and hit up an awesome fabric and notions sale week ever...that I am getting paid for. I think Spring Break is so important, because it gives teachers and kids the opportunity to refresh and get ready for more learning...ok, ok...I just like the time off...Who could blame me.

Today was an awesome day. Maggie Moo and I headed down to Franklin to meet up with our Awesomest Aunt Molly. Molly and I have been the best of friends since orientation before our Freshman year at Cumberland University. We roomed together for four years, played tennis together, celebrated birthdays together (21 years old four years in a row!!! wink, wink), did everything together. She is a great woman and one that I truly admire. She recently relocated from Hendersonville to Franklin, we were very sad to see her go, but we were all excited for her and her new adventure she was taking on.

We met Molly at her new house...Love her place! So cute and so Molly! We then headed over to do some shopping and eat some yummy, yummy lunch at Chili's. It was so good. After we refueled, we headed over to the mall. We did some retail exercise, you know were you get all your exercise walking from store to store...

These pictures were taken at Chili's for lunch. Maggie is such a sweet little girl and loves to sit in a highchair. She is very nosey so she loves to be able to see and hear everything. She also loved the coasters.

I captured this picture as we were heading on an elevator. She is so laid back and having such a great time. She even helped pick out her new pair of BabyLegs...not sure about these things yet, but we will see.

After our fun filled day, we had to take Aunt Molly back home, which we hated to do.

We love you Aunt Molly and we are so blessed that we got to come hang out with you today.

Thanks for having so much fun with us.

Being Proud...

There are so many people in life that I am constantly blown away by.

My sister, Brea, is one of those people.
I love Brea with all that I am. I have some of my best memories from my childhood because of her. Sure we had our fights, mainly about chores...go figure...but we still always knew the bottom line was that we loved each other. I will never forget Brea leaving for college and feeling like I had lost my best friend. Brea is such an amazing woman...period. She is a Christian and not afraid to tell you that. She is a wife to an amazing man, J, a mom to four beautiful children, she is a daughter, a sister, a sister-in-law, an auntie Brea, a business woman, a comedian (she is so stinkin' funny), and a friend to many.

Brea just finished up her Consignment sale, Encores and More North Children's Sale here in Hendersonville. The sale was out of this world. I have never seen a sale run so smoothly, with so many wonderful workers, wonderful consignors, and wonderful shoppers. I just couldn't believe that she was so well organized (not because she is not, but because it is a huge sale to organize) and in such great spirits the whole time. She makes it possible for hundreds of people to unload their goodies that they no longer need to make some extra money. She provides a great opportunity for new moms to shop for their upcoming bundles of joy.

When I went today to pick up my check and goodies that didn't sell (yes, the pick up time was today and she had checks ready TODAY!!!), I just looked at her with such admiration for her creativity, responsibility, and beauty. I know that there have been times when Brea and I have had our differences, but the bottom line is just the same as it was when we were kids. I love her more than I could ever tell her. I always want her to know how much I look up to her and how much her impact on my life has made me the woman and mother I am today. I will never forget when Josh got so sick and was in the ambulance in the driveway...she just sat with me and prayed. She just looked at me and said words that I will never forget..."Alie, you know...God is in control." I saw God through her that night. It is a night that I will never fully be able to wrap my mind and thoughts around, but I am still trying. I just remember that I knew that even with Josh being shocked with an AED with CPR right behind it, that he was surrounded with love.

I love her...I don't tell her that enough. She ALWAYS supports me and guides me through times when I am uncertain.

She is my sister, my cheerleader, my best friend and I am so proud of her.

Sweet Baby Jack...

...This is sweet baby Jack...

Our long time friends of our family, Kim & Chris came over today for their photo shoot with Josh. Mr. Jack is 3.5 months old and so sweet. He was such a joy just to watch.
Josh had a great time with his photo shoot.

You can just tell by Jack's laid back personality that he is going to be such a fun little boy. His big sister McKinley is a doll as well. She is so smart and couldn't wait to get out back to visit the "cooowwwsss."

It was great to see all of them and I hope that Kim & Chris love their pictures!

Maggie Moo and Her Butterfly Buttercup...

Sweet Maggie got to wear her new shirt that her mommy made her today.
This is Buttercup the Butterfly made by Maggie Moo Designs.

She looked so cute in it and couldn't stop picking at the button. She is getting so big...quickly approaching 8 months old!

We can't believe it and love every single minute with her.

Guess Who's A Blogger...

Josh finally started a BLOG about his photography venture. I am so excited for him. He plans to use his blog to showcase his photography sessions.

I am so impressed with the beautiful pictures that he takes, not only of Maggie, but also of others. He has a great eye and a true skill.

Hop over and say hello...

These pictures were captured at our nephews, Isaac and Luke's, baseball practice yesterday. Brea and Jonathan couldn't take them to their practice so my dad, Poppy Eddie, and Josh took them. Josh said it was great! The boys are getting so big, it is hard to believe.

There are many other pictures to look through with more that will be added with time.

I am so proud of you honey!

Help! I am a SLOB...

I hate to admit it, but my sewing area in our bonus room is out of control! It is quickly taking over the whole room, which is a HUGE room. Here are some pictures to back me up.

Check out that little cutie, Maggie. She loves to be apart!

Don't worry, JuJu, I am turning into Captain Organization today!

Check back soon for updated pictures with a nice, neat sewing place for me to craft!

Baby, It's Hot Outside...

It was a beautiful day here in Hendersonville. I haven't been out of the house since last Saturday (unless you count hospitals and doctor's offices), so we decided to go outside and enjoy the nice warm weather.

We went for a short walk as I am still working up my energy and just enjoyed some time together.

I loved these pictures of my two favorite people in all the world.

Alie's New Baby...

So, long story...but the good ole' Brother sewing machine that my wonderful hubby, Josh, bought for me bit the dust last weekend. I LOVE my sewing machine and use it more and more all the time. We still had the receipt, because we are just that organized...we took that bad boy back to the store and got a cash refund. We then headed over a local sewing shop to check out a new one.

I got a BABY LOCK! I LOVE it. It was a really nice machine and best of was on SALE!
I hated to see the ole' Brother machine go, but I am thrilled about it's big sister!!
