She was a wee bit nervous (she always is at new things) and she wanted me to sit right next to her. The dog's owner was sitting there with her dog, Tucker, so I sat a little ways away listening. Maddy had so much fun and I daresay Tucker enjoyed it too, though the story seemed to make him a little sleepy. He was a perfect little guy and his owner said that she found him at the shelter 8 years ago. He didn't exactly want to get his picture taken, but isn't he cute!

And who doesn't love a cute little ampersand?
I bought this for a wall project that I haven't finished yet and so,
have moved it around a little bit here and there.
I love it and purchased it from Tracey at French Larkspur.
If you haven't found her yet, you must check her out
(though I believe she is currently in Paris) --lucky Tracey!
She has such a beautiful sense of style!
For more B&W photos -- visit Lisa!

It was a really lovely day and so wonderful to celebrate such a momentous occasion on one of God's most beautiful spring days. All of a sudden, Sunday was the day the pear trees and magnolia trees bloomed -- so beautiful!
Of course, before we left for church, Mickey HAD to get in a picture with Maddy. That silly Mouse -- he waited in the car at church, but then joined us for dinner afterwards!

Maddy and I were in Omaha visiting my sister and two of her kiddos from Florida! They brought the warm weather with them as it was 85 on March 31st! That was crazy hot!! Amy and I turned on the AC when our parents weren't looking! Actually, she did it, not me -- she has always had a bit of a naughty streak!
We had such a good time visiting and having the cousins (Maddy, Grace and Erik) hang out together. We went to a fun arcade, played some glow golf, went out to lunch and the girls absolutely wore Grandma's dog out taking him on many walks.
Plus, Amy got to meet her little Great-Niece -- Miss Janie!! Luckily (for us) Amy did not act like our Great-Aunt Carrie used to when it was hot!

And look at Amy's hair! She has way curlier hair than mine, but it was so gorgeous, soft and straight! A hairdresser friend was "practicing" some new hair-straightening procedure and did it for a substantial discount. I SO want it for my hair too!!! I must get to Florida! Amy mentioned that she also has some plastic surgeon friends who have been promising discount treatments!! Oh yeah, bring on the botox and fillers! Kidding! Errrr, well, kind of kidding! ;)
Amy, Erik, Maddy, Grace and Larry
Unfortunately, Amy, Erik and Grace had to head back to Florida early on Easter Sunday - we miss them already!
