Easter is a special time for me. When I was 8 years old I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart as my lord and savior. I still remember that Sunday morning and being so nervous about walking down the isle. What a difference Jesus has made in both mine and Bella's life! Im so thankful now that I get to tell her all about the good things he has done.

I grew up loving dance and secretly still do. Jenny Manning Holloway and I had our first dance recital at the English school of dance when we were 3 and finished our senior year together at Ballet Columbus. We have joked that our children probably wouldn't even like to dance, just because we wanted Bella and Carrington to! When Kyle and I visited New York back at Christmas, Stephanie (Madrina) bought Bella this sweet tu-tu at FAO. I had forgotten about it, until I found it hanging in the closet and realized it was time to try it out! Bella LOVED it and I just beamed with excitement. I think she makes a cute little dancer! Oh and please notice the picture in her hand. Its Bella's Nanu, my Mom. She sent us her school picture in our Valentine's happy and I laughed at her for doing it. I mean, who sends personal photos of themselves? ha. Apparently Bella loved the idea, because it has not left her hand. So.. here is proof Mom that she does love you!
I have really started to enjoy cooking! I am always looking for new, easy recipes to try. (if you have any please send them my way) After work, around 5:00 we start dinner and Bella usually sits on the counter close to me and "munches" on her dinner if everything is not ready by the time her tummy says. This has actually been a great way for me to help her learn to feed herself, or so I thought! She would "assists" with a few bits here and there. Since she has figured out that she can "DO IT HERSELF" she no longer needs Mommy. (INSERT SAD FACE). She pouts, throws food or says NO now when I try to help her. Meals have gone from 15 min to 50 minutes!!! She will try and pick every piece of corn up until it is all gone and stone cold! I thought It was so cute and fun, but I will admit my devotionals have now been directed towards patience. Here is to me finding some through Miss Pris and meal time!
I sat in the swing while she played a while and she took a break as though she was coming to tell me something important! It was so cute!
I LOVE BREAD!!
Her new way of demonstrating she doesn't like what I'm saying! I get this often!

Miss Priss herself!
Bella Watching Gabby on the computer! I love this!
Adam and Megan finally got there around 4 and Bella really began to show out! She showed her Aunt Meggie how to really wear sunglasses and her Uncle Adam that kisses were extra special! She even got her first taste of Shields' cooking! My Aunt spoiled us with some gooood Jambalaya, an amazing salad, and ice box mouse pie! We then got to see some home footage of Bella's cousin Gabby. Gabby is my cousin Jason and his wife, Debbie's first child who is 6 weeks older than Bella. (Aunt and Uncle's son) Jason and Debbie just had their second a few weeks ago, Allie! They both are very beautiful little girls! My Aunt had some footage of Gabby on her computer..she was full of jabber and dancing which really seemed to entertain Bella! She couldn't keep her eyes off the computer! We got so tickled watching her. It was almost like they were communicating, very cute, but strange too! :)
After much visiting, Bella and I headed back to Jackson. Bella was out like a light 20 minutes into the ride. She seemed to be worn out from all the playing! We had such a fun day. It's always good to see my family! As my Dad would say, "it doesn't get much better than them!" ;)
