I've been on a slight hiatis from blogging. Lots going on up here in Madison, Al. We are in the middle of another move. The house we were renting from my dad sold. So we have found another house and can't move in until next week. In the mean time we are living with my mom. Everything is in storage, etc, etc, etc. I have so many pictures to post but that won't be for a few weeks. When I get my house up and running! Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day Weekend!
Just a few pics of Easter egg hunting and hanging out with the family. It was a wonderful day spent with my family. It was truly a blessing to have my sister in town from Japan with her kids. It's been years since we've been together for Easter or any holidays. Hope and pray you all had a wonderful Easter as well.
A few weeks ago (right before her 2nd birthday) Addison slept in a big girl bed! She was so excited to be able to get in the bed herself. The transition has been great! Ican't believe how big she is. Potty training is soon on the horizon. Not sure how I feel about that transition! :) I guess we will cross that bridge when we get there. Look at that sweet baby!!!
I usually wouldn't post a picture of my groceries but this week at Publix was a good one. For those of you who shop at Publix you know how good the sale is this week. I'm so excited about all the meals I can make with these staples. Yes, I'm excited about groceries!!! :)
Total: $17.37 (39 items) Saved: $60.37 That makes each item .45 cents each.
Every Wednesday Addison and I go to a gymnastics class at the Little Gym. It's so much fun and we definitely look forward to it every week. We also had her birthday party there a few weeks ago. It was a fabulous party and Addison loved having it there. Here are a few pictures from her class.

(the high beam is her favorite)
(deciding she doesn't want to be part of the group)
(trying to climb and wishing I would put down the camera to help her)
So finally......after waiting 2 years Addison called me mama! She has been calling Michael "da" for a long time but would never call me "ma" or "mama" or anything close to it. She was capable of saying it but never would. Sunday, the day before her 2nd birthday I heard her looking for me but this time she was calling me "mama". I think I shed a few tears. 2 years is a long time to wait!
..............I just can't hide it. So I must share with all of you out there that my sister and my neice and nephew are flying in today for a 3MONTH visit!!!! They are stationed in Sasebo, Japan and I haven't seen them for a whole year other than Skype of course. Matt my brother-in-law whose in the navy just left for the boat on a 3 month cruise so Jess and the kids packed up and are coming for their first visit since being in Japan. She will be in the same town with me just a mile down the road at my mom's house. I'm so excited for Addison to get to play with her cousins and her Aunt. Anyways, please say a prayer for my sister for grace and patience. She is flying across the world with 2 kids! :)
