Allie Grace & an award..

As you probably already know we kept our sweet little Allie Grace last week. She's at an age where she mimics EVERYTHING you do! It's just TOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!!!! Well, she's undoubtedly started "dancing" so of course the boys tried ALL day (over and over and OVER again) to get her to dance for them.

The video I'm about to share was taken with my phone (Yes, that explains the poor quality and the blurring when she starts jumping) O=-) We'd found a really peppy song on the radio and she was just about to "cut loose." (Oh, ignore my hillbilly accent when you hear me talking.. ICK!)

So to set the stage (so to speak)... Gabe was dancing all over the place trying to get her to dance. I kept trying to get him to STOP the crazy dancing and just "bop his head" because I knew all the movement would blur the video. (Not much luck with that) HA!! Oh, if you'll watch closely (bottom left corner of the screen) you can see Gabe's shadow as he was dancing.. but don't tell him.. he'll kill me.

Alrighty, I've rambled enough... here's our little angel ☺

Needless to say, we are just CRAZY about this baby! (The boys ALWAYS BEG for a baby sister when we've had her)

Now, on to bloggy awards....

I received an award from Jennifer @ My Life With Four Kids. This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his/her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary and personal values every day.

The rules to follow are:

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person that has granted the award and his or her blog link. (check.)

2) Pass the award to another 15 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment. Remember to contact each of them to let them know they have been chosen for this award. (check.. well, kind of)

See, I ALWAYS cheat when it comes to things like this.. I can never pick just one, or two, or fifteen (like the rules instruct). I just can't do it. I'm a cheater like that.. sorry. I think you're all deserving of this award, I couldn't possibly.. oh, I've said all this already didn't I? Hehehe Thanks again Jennifer for thinking of me. You are just too sweet! ♥U!

Okay, I've kept you long enough.. I hope each of you will have a FANTASTIC week!

Dear Tonya,
I wanted to stop by and thank you for joining the friends at A Place Called Simplicity. All the new friends have been such an encouragement to our often overwhelmed hearts.

Actually I have been on your blog before, but don't think I ever commented. And with the trauma of the fire, my memory is zip.

So let me take this opportunity to say that I am so, so, so, sorry you lost your precious son. How painful for you and your family. We can't imagine the depth of your grief...and what an ongoing process it must be. I do love the title of your sister died and my mom put on her tombstone, "Safe in the Arms of Jesus." Those words have always comforted my heart.

Anyway, I pray that you continue to find grace to deal with each day...

Love from Colorado, Linn

Oh, what a cutie! I love Allie Grace's dancing. I had to laugh, though...I caught myself bouncing my head, trying to make her dance! LOL It's been a long day, already! Hehe

I did see Gabe's shadow. He was "breaking it down", wasn't he?! ;o)

Have a great week, sister girl!
