Lily has been experiencing some new things. She has LOVED everything!

The flower headband is from Aunt Anna. She couldn't resist.

Watching TV

The other night, we were watching a movie. My parents have this GIANT remote,(given as a joke) and turned out to be the perfect toy for Lily. She LOVES to push buttons on anything. It was pretty cute to see her with it. We had to 'set her up' with the remote, in front of the TV.

Mother Daughter Night

In YW, we're getting ready for a Mother Daughter Night. We're going to have a BBQ and play games. Here are the invites for it. I thought they turned out pretty cute.
I just had to share.

"Think, think, think"

Brian and I often wonder what Lily dreams about.
Heaven? What she did today?

We have to barricade her now with pillows because she rolls EVERYWHERE!!!

Lily's nickname is "Pumpkin". It fits well, because she was born in October. My Mom took the opportunity to make a quilt for our Little Pumpkin.
Here are a couple pictures of it:

Spring Fever

Earlier this week, the weather finally warmed up! We were able to go out for walks, I even wanted to open up the windows to the house because it felt so nice! So we dressed Lily accordingly. She had her short sleeves and FLIP-FLOPS! (Thanks to Aunt Anna!) Here are just a few pictures.

Unfortunately, the warmer weather did NOT last. We woke up one morning and found snow EVERYWHERE! It hasn't warmed since, in fact, it keeps getting COLDER! =(

"Devree Night"

One of the young women in our ward recently had a cancerous brain tumor removed, and she is currently being treated at St. Jude's in Memphis, TN. We had a mutual night 'dedicated' to Devree. We all wrote her letters and put together a blanket. Here's a picture of the girls that were there that night. (We combine with the other ward because we have a very small YW group)

Devree's favorite color is purple.
