Elise had her first dance recital today. It was just the cutest! She did a good job of not getting stage fright and actually knew the steps. It reminded me of Melanie's recitals. We started Melanie in dancing at about this same age. It is amazing the resemblance of Melanie's pictures at this age and Elise!

I spent some time on my back porch with a book this holiday weekend. I haven't spent much time outside since we moved to this house but the view is quite nice and I hope to spend more time out there this summer. The birds like he place and I was able to get some pictures of one of the redbirds that visits often.

My Mothers Day was indeed as good as it gets. We all went to church together and came home and had lunch and visited. Then we went to dinner together. Then we came back to the house for coffee and desert. Jamie's parents joined us and we had a great time together as a family. We are so blessed that we all enjoy one another and look forward to our time together. Jamie's family have taken in Melanie and Elise and have truly been great to them. On the other hand, Greg and I count our blessings every day that Jamie came along into our family. He has certainly completed our family and we love him like a son. As the commercial cannot put a price on that.
Melanie and I are already planning something special for the guys for Father's Day.
Our Men surprised us with a gift certificate to the spa and have informed us that they will babysit while we go!! They are just the best!!!!
