Spring Break

I saw this idea on a favorite blog of mine (2Clever), and created them for the girls' teachers as a spring break treat!

Get it? Spring... break!

So, we DO know Jack....sort of

We know this Jack....he's hysterically funny, but doesn't read our blog (why not, Jack?) and won't fit in the shirt....

We WISH we knew this Jack, but he has the same issues as the FIRST Jack

We ALL know this Jack, but I don't usually see him wearing a shirt and I don't think he can read

Anyhoo....there were so many people who commented and SO many deserving Jacks that we had to draw a Jack out of a hat...
The winning Jack was nominated by Kelly with this heartfelt comment:

I DO know a Jack and he is the son of one of your trunk show hostesses - Kari Lennon in Tampa. I am commenting on her behalf because she would be way too humble to go for this shirt, but she REALLY deserves it. Her little Jack is only a size 6, but hey, he'll grow into it, right? He has very blonde hair, a precious little smile and absolutely loves animals. He is the third child out of four, so he deserves this sassy new t-shirt. I can't say enough about Kari - not only is she a wonderful mom, but she works tirelessly as a volunteer for many charitable causes, namely Hope Preparatory Academy - a school for children with special needs that she FOUNDED about 5 years ago. Jack would be so proud to sport this little t with his name on it!

So Jack, wear it with pride and we will say we DO know JACK!

It's all about fashion...

Some days the girls get really creative with their fashion sense...

Our balance beam


The girls have all been enjoying their gymnastics classes so much, they asked their grandpa to build them a balance beam. They batted their eyelashes and he didn't stand a chance!

As soon as he finished construction, they ran upstairs to put on their leotards!

Daddy Daughter Date Night

The husband was going to be out of town for the school's Daddy/Daughter dance, so he decided to take Georgia out on the town for a special dinner date. She was very excited. The dress was a hand-me-down from Liz's daughter, Lily, and it is Georgia's very favorite dress to wear around the house for dress-up. The girls call it "la-la" time. You know, spin around and sing to yourself, "la, la, la, la, la". Georgia was allowed to choose the restaurant and after much deliberation, she decided that she would be too dressed up for McDonalds. I hated to tell her that she would be pretty much too dressed up for most every restaurant in town! She chose a Mexican restaurant that has a great patio with a reflecting pool and outdoor seating.

Easter fun





I uploaded my Easter pictures today and just wanted to share some Easter fun, including a visit from the water bunny! This tradition was started by my father in law who usually takes Lily out on his boat where eggs misteriously appear near the boat and have to be fished out with a net. The weather did not cooperate this year, so the water bunny visited our pool!

Bloggy goodness

I have been blog surfing lately and found some really fun stuff to share with you.

If the tooth fairy has been visiting your home, you may be inspired to make a tooth fairy pillow like this one over at http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/. How stinkin' cute is that?!

I know that we are officially post-Easter now, but this is too cute not to try making! I found Bunny Salad over at one of my favorite blogs, 2Clever.

Another cute idea I found that I liked for its sheer simplicity - pet treat jars.
