Everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25

Little Miss Monkey Is Three!

Can you believe I let little Lulu’s third birthday slip by last week without so much as a nod to it here on the blog?  Shame on me!

Y’all know that I have a tradition of taking my monkey’s pictures at the exact time of their birth every year.  Luckily, I haven’t missed a photo op yet.

Lucy is all about princesses now.  Actually, she’s all about princesses and babies and kitties, but at this particular moment she was in full-out princess mode. And consider yourself warned…this post contains TONS of pictures of one cute little princess.

Move over Toddlers in Tiaras, this little monkey would take home the title of Ultimate Grand Supreme any day!

This last picture scares me a little.  There’s no telling what sort of mischievous thoughts are running through that pretty little head.

I’m running a little bit behind on birthday parties this year.  Hopefully we’ll have Lucy’s party in the next week or two.  Her theme of choice this year is (no big surprise here) Princesses!

Fun on the Fourth

Surprise!!  I have a new post to share with you today!

Hope y’all had a great Fourth of July holiday.  The monkeys and I spent the evening at my parents’ house, because the Tool Man was outta town. :(

I don’t know what the weather was like where you were, but over here, it was H-O-T.  So my mom drug out the kiddie pool, set up a sprinkler, and let the monkeys get wet.

Lucy also enjoyed blowing some bubbles.

When Ty was a baby, Sandy bought him a baby swing and hung it out on her back deck.  It’s still hanging out there, and Ty still loves to swing on it.  (Don’t tell him you saw these pictures, though, because he would die of embarrassment.)

The monkeys actually spent more time in the mud around the pool, than in the pool itself.  This would explain how the pool water got so muddy so fast.  But Lucy didn’t let a little bit of dirt keep her from enjoying the water.
