Birthday Girl

Thank you to everyone for all of the birthday wishes for miss Gracie Girl...we had a relaxing day on Tuesday, trying to keep things as normal as possible. With all of the changes she has going on in her life she has taken her sassiness to a whole new level , we are working on it though. I keep saying, now her sass is justified since she's two...goodness, everyone keeps telling me that 3 is worse! YIKES! Watch out!

Here are a few pictures from her actual birthday, I'll have to get my mom's camera to post pictures from her birthday party with daddy.

A good girlfriend that I met through Lilibet's lives on a farm about 25 minutes from Marshall...Grace loves kitties, and Carol's house had some little ones this year. Carol invited us out, and Grace could NOT have had a better time.

I was so thankful to spend some time with Carol and her family before we left Marshall too. She is an amazing woman with a wonderful family and home. I'll miss seeing her weekly at Lilibet's!

Grace was just so amazed by the baby kitties, she hasn't seen a little cat before and thought it was awesome that she could pick these little ones up and drag them around!

The Lake

Some friends of ours invited us up to their lake cabin near Alexandria , and we were so thrilled that it worked out for us to spend the weekend with them. It was a nice weekend and as you can tell from the photos Grace certainly enjoyed herself.

We went to a duck pond in Alex, and her ultimate goal was to keep the duckies off of the grass and CHASE them full speed into the water. What a hoot...she is a fearless little stinker, and didn't realize that the geese would hurt if she let them try to eat bread from her hand.

She loved the boat, and was totally fine jumping out the back of the boat into the middle of the lake...however, once she was in she hung on tight to Momma and Daddy...
Isn't she a sweetie in that little sassy suit?? Love her!


Grandma's are there to tell Daddy's that its okay for little girl to pick flowers from the garden. What else are the flowers there for? Enjoyment!

Planting with Poppa

Grace learned the basics of planting with sweet are these pictures?

Then of course, she was back to her sassy self, and enjoyed helping Daddy hoist Poppa up into the trees to do some trimming. I love this nice weather we have been having. What do we tell little ones when winter comes and they cannot be outside everyday? Grace will be very sad.
