Only a true princess sleeps in her crown.

It's a Beautiful Sunny Day

That is a phrase I hear out of Presley's mouth everyday.  It doesn't matter if it is overcast and thundering.  To her, everyday is a beautiful sunny day.  I wish I had that outlook.  Lately mine has been, "If it's not one thing, it's another!" I must work on that!

May 28th (the last day of school) is coming soon, and we have been busy with all that comes along with the last day of school.  Academic banquet, athletic banquet, graduation, cookouts, and parties.  We had a nice weekend hanging out at home.  We changed Presley's bed over to a toddler bed Sunday, and she seems to like it.  We like that she hasn't gotten out of it yet.  It might have something to do with the fact that she can't open the door to her bedroom. 

Monday morning our sweet rat terrier, Sukie, got hit by a car.  It has been tough for us.  She came up to Nick's door in Dermott before we got married, and she never left.  We had her for 6 years. She was Nick's shadow. She followed him everywhere. She would even sit outside the bathroom door and wait for him to come out.  I keep hoping that she will come to the backdoor whining for us to open it. 

Yesterday Nick was the MC at the Athletic Banquet.  He did so well, and I was so proud of him.  I couldn't believe how much he was talking! I wish I would have taken pictures.

Today Presley had fever when she woke up, so I stayed home with her. I hope it is just those pesky molars coming in!

Tomorrow we have graduation! I love seeing those seniors leave every year.  I am so excited for them, and I can't wait to see all of the things that they are going to accomplish!  We have a busy weekend filled with cookouts and parties.

Mother's Day Weekend

My mom, Presley, and I spent our Saturday at the Memphis Zoo.  We had a great day, and we couldn't have had better weather! There was no better way to spend Mother's Day than to spend time with my wonderful mom and my beautiful daughter.

On Sunday the men in our Sunday School class cooked breakfast for us, and after church, we met Nick's family in NLR for lunch at Cracker Barrel. It was a great weekend!

Baby Dedication

Today we had a baby dedication at church, and Nick and I made a promise to God to raise Presley according to His word and ways.  My family and Nick's parents were here to celebrate this occasion with us.  It was a beautiful day!
