Abby's Baptism

Miss Abby got baptized at Moody Gardens this afternoon. It was actually quite pretty and fun, too! She had a great time splashing around. She's happy to be in God's family! 

W is for Will and Watermelon

His favorite time of year. His favorite snack of all time. Look. He eats it with his whole face!

look at this face

do you see this face? this is exactly the pitiful face that she follows me around making. she sort of hums and whines in my direction. she chases my ankles all day, but i'm still faster. if i change my course before she can attempt to pull up on my leg, she cries. look at those eyes. look at that mouth. a straight little line. how can i say no that face?

Peach Cobbler

Honey, if you are reading this, I have bad news. Grandma says there are not really going to be alot of peaches this year. But that's ok. We still have the awesome peach cobbler recipe that works just great with canned peaches. I'm sure they hung from a tree at one point. 

Grandma, here's that recipe. It's easy and pretty!

Patio Progress.

Brandon's been working on the courtyard like crazy. He's been making these pavers and painted the dungeon white. Now it's so fun.
See how fun it is? It makes people drink margaritas, hang around, and make pirate faces. Festive!

Random Stuff from Around the House

OK, I know that if you are watching this blog, then all you care about is the pictures of the babies. Here they are:
Will and Brandon jamming out to Itsy Bitsy Spider. That guitar that Brandon is holding is MINE! It's my mother's day present from him. Love it, but taking off to let the blisters on my fingers heal.
This is Abby discovering that at least one out of her two teeth is rather sweet. That's whipped cream.

This is Will eating the cake while I'm trying to take a picture of it. Priceless.
This is the cake that could have been so much better. But I'll tell you about it anyway and how I would have made it a pina colada cake. You take a pack of Jello Vanilla Pudding mix and a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple and mix it together, juice and all. Fold in a tub of Cool Whip. That's your fluffy business. Then just slice an angel food cake in thirds horizontally, piling up the whipped cream stuff in between and on top. What was so obviously lacking was the coconut. It just desperately needed coconut. If it had coconut I think I would have been soooo happy about it. But it was ok and it was done in 5 minutes. It's good to have a couple of those party tricks up your sleeve. Just think about the coconut, though.
