Headed down to the pond.
The whole gang: Thomas, Hank, Emma, Camille, Landry Grace, Hilton, and Jake.
Feeding the ducks that came by our campsite for a snack.
Can we say CUTE? I love this sweet picture!
Striking a pose down by the pond. They ended up catching up a lot of fish over the course of 24 hours. Jake was loving this.
The ducks were everywhere!
Sharon was showing my mom how to make her infamous homemade salsa.
Hilton with his fish and Landry Grace not wanting to cooperate.
Landry Grace and Camille loving with Mr. LeeJay(Sharon's husband)
Our meal that night consisted of pork tenderloin, hash brown casserole, salad, and bread.
Landry Grace had a ball with Larkin and Hank.
Roasting marshmallows for the smores.
I really thought Landry Grace was going to turn into a cheese ball....no nap yesterday and this was at 8:45 last night. She was beyond exhausted and still asking for these silly cheese balls. Needless to day once her head hit the pillow she did not roll over until 7:30 this morning. We invested in some sleeping bags for the kiddos and I think that helped them not to get too cold.
And of course the next morning we ended the trip with blueberry pancakes.

I typically post the same old news day in and day out. I'm sure to most of you it is very boring. But I do want to share with you something that I deem very important. My sister, Laura, who lives in Atlanta lost her job several weeks ago. She is a single mother and over the course of the last 5 years has not had a steady job until this past job. So I asked my Sunday school class to please pray for her, that she would find something soon.
Please find the attached documents for the information you need for your scheduled interview on Tuesday 3/29/11. Please arrive a few minutes early as the lobby can get congested with visitors and we will need a few minutes to get you to your interview.
Attached are also directions, please be sure to use these directions and do NOT use mapquest or any GPS locator as they will NOT take you to the proper address. Also attached is an application to fill out and bring with you to your interview to give to Cindy Guinn.
Please reply to this email so I know you received it.
Let me know if you have any questions.

WOW. Please help me if you will to pray for her on Tuesday. I am so humbled and wanted to share this with you.

And this is what he would rather be doing at the game: Rock collecting. Nice! Matt was a very competitive child, I was not. I couldn't have cared LESS. In junior high the bug got me. Hoping he will be a good mix(competitive-wise) between the 2 of us.
Sweet Emma spent last night with us and went with us to church as well this morning. She is such a good helper and the kids love her!
Yay for some SPRING BREAK!

Uncle Mark, GiGi, Matt with the babies.
Landry Grace and Jake are staying with my parent's tonight so that I can drive Matt to the airport in the morning. Mom decided to do a trial run on the camping and they are in the backyard tonight. Both of them were so excited when I told them they were camping out.
Landry Grace on her blow-up mattress.
Jake had his own as well.
And a quick pose on Big Mama's bed before I left.
It was pitch black when I was leaving and this is the best I could get. Sweet Bandit was guarding the tent and they were reading a Bible story when I left. I'll be interested to see if they make it all night!!

Hope you are having a great week! I had a last minute offer to attend the Life Choices fundraiser tonight in Ruston to hear Pam Tebow (Tim Tebow's mother) speak. If you haven't heard her testimony, Google her. It's well worth your time. I don't think it was an accident that I attended. God has really been speaking to my heart these days. I'm praying praying about some things. What an awesome God we serve.

Landry Grace went to her first dentist appointment today. We really thought it would be routine and not much else, so I was surprised when Dr. Ward(who is a wonderful man and I highly recommend him) started spatting off all kinds of codes to his hygienist. I knew something wasn't right and sure enough she has enamel displacia. This means the enamel on her back teeth and canines is not there. When Dr. Ward showed us her back teeth, I was pretty horrified because her back teeth basically look rotted. I feel even worse that I didn't notice it first. I think as parents' we have all felt that way. We did notice her canine teeth last year and had them looked at but were told just to wait until she was 3.
Here she is ready to open up for Mrs. Jackie.
Dr. Ward was talking to her about running with Big Mama this morning. I stopped taking pictures once I found out the situation of her teeth.
You cannot tell a whole lot as the camera wouldn't focus well on her back teeth and I felt bad that I was asking my 3 year old to take a picture of her mouth. You can see the discoloration in the back part of her mouth. Dr. Ward was surprised that she hadn't complained of any pain.
She will need some caps and the situation is hereditary so I'm not beating myself up over not brushing her teeth well enough. We are scheduled for a consult with the periodontist in a week. There will be some sedation involved so that always has me a little worried but all in all she should be fine. It could always be worse. She is healthy and happy other than her poor teeth. We can handle this!

The rain canceled our next party as it was scheduled during the Tech baseball game. We headed to Bossier for a date night and GG kept the kids. Sunday morning we went to our old church, Cypress Baptist, for Sunday school and church. We miss our church family and friends there so much! I could go on and on but I'll stop there. We feel God has placed us in Ruston right now but are praying for direction in the future.
Landry Grace was fine once the cotton candy was in her hand. She ate the entire thing.
Jake was playing "Mardi Gras Mambo" on his trumpet.
Waiting on the parade to start.
We had located the parade at this point and they were all smiles.
This particular float was throwing peacock feathers and what Matt thought was a rubber chicken foot. Well, it wasn't rubber....and the foot cut his hand pretty good. Gross!
I think Jake held his hands up the entire parade. Pretty comical.
They loved wearing the beads around their neck for the first 10 minutes. After that, they preferred to have them in the bag.
Sacked O.U.T. on the way home. We even stopped on the way home to have dinner with Aunt Lou and LG was so tired she just slept on 2 chairs that we pushed together. Yeah, she was pretty upset when she finally awoke near Ruston and realized that we'd already gone out to eat. :(
Celebrating with all their loot.
That's all folks!
