March Madness

Actually it really hasn't been mad around here, just weird. Lots of crazy weather; beautiful and sunny then the next it rains 3 days straight! Speaking of weather, I have received so many inquiries and people contacting me concerned about my family in Fargo. How kind of you all! Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers for them! They are all located far enough away from the river that their houses are not in danger. My sister has quite a bit of water in her backyard but other than that, everyone has remained safe and dry. Schools are closed, hospitals have been evacuated, only grocery and gas stations are open. The river level has dropped enough for now by is expected to rise again in the next week or so. Please keep North Dakota and Minnesota in your prayers!

We've been trying to stay busy around the house and have been trying to get out as often as we can. I'm in the process of planning Audrey's 1st birthday party! I can't even believe that she is that old already! Even though it's sad, each day is such a joy! Her personality is really blooming these days! She makes me laugh so hard! :) What a lucky girl I am to have such an amazing little girl in my life!

We went to the park with our friends the Bentons a couple weeks ago. We had so much fun!

Waiting to slide

Audrey's new chair. We got it for $1.99 at the Goodwill! She will sit in it, holding onto the handles on the side, until you take her off :)

Cheerio on the nose :)

I made my first diaper cake with my friend Priscilla for our friend's baby shower. I think it turned out pretty cute!

What a little "DOLLIE". She has the most BEAUTIFUL color hair. You can tell seeing Audrey's pictures that she is very used to having pictures taken because she just seems to know to sit and pose while you are taking the pictures. She looked like a little professional compared to the little guy with her on the He looked like he wanted to go Aunt Linda
