My sweet husband celebrated a birthday earlier this month. So, we celebrated him with a large breakfast and tons of books! The kids helped decorate and wrote him sweet letters. They even made him a banner. Mike, we are beyond thankful for you and love to celebrate you every day!
For the first time in a looonnnggg time, my family was all together for Easter. My sister and I could barely look at eachother during the Sunday service. I should know to wear waterproof mascara when my family is in town. We had a wonderful time on a whirlwind of a day. We went to church, came home to eat a fun meal, celebrated birthdays with cheesecake and presents, had an Easter egg hunt, and played outside. We packed in as much as we could before Allison, Brad, and baby Fischer had to go back to their house. It was a busy day but a full day! Family is so special, especially on Easter! Enjoy the pictures!
My sister lives 3 hours away near Asheville. So when my mom came to visit, we meet halfway and trade off. And, every time we do that, I get to see sweet baby Fischer! Y'all, that little boy is such a joy. We ate at Cracker Barrel and I'm sure I made an absolute quack of myself since I was constantly oooing and coooing and kissing and making silly faces. Oh well! He's my nephew! We were the giggly table with a cute baby!
The other pictures of the first time my kids met Fischer. They were smitten, as you can tell by their faces!
You know what I love about that first picture? My mom took it. And since she had done the baths, cooked supper, and probably cleaned up that day while we were out, we were relaxing. Told ya my mom swoops in! We had a great time while she was here, as you can tell in the pictures. Making cookies and doing crafts. Mom, thank you so much for all you did and do!
Howdy, Emily and I are glad that you made it to our blog in honor of Bella Grace Smith (e.t.a. 10.18.2008). We had a good time naming the blog. In the end, the choice was between:
1. the blog concerning the glorious child of Mike and Emily Smith 2. ittybittySmithy 3. Mike and Emily are awesome
After long and arduous consideration, we chose number 2 (although numbers 1 and 3 do seem appropriate). We (and by we I mean mostly Emily) will be periodically posting pictures and updates on the pregnancy and then infancy of little Bella. We'd love to hear from you.
This blog will take you all through the story of Mike and Emily from our dating stage at WBU to the current waiting period of the arrival of our precious Bella. Check out the older posts to see our journey! Enjoy!!
