And May is here!

Make sure you scroll down for April's post!
Also, we find out Wednesday if we will have a brother or a sister for Kate. Vote on the side for what you think it is!
The first part of May started out with terrible weather. We were very fortunate and only had a little flooding which dried up with the sun. We spent part of the day in the laundry room with the dogs, and the other getting ready for the KY Derby Party! Kate spent her day feeding Babe. Yes, she fed her the whole bowl piece by piece. What a sweet girl, and what a sweet dog! As you can tell, she took her job VERY seriously!
Whew! I need a rest! Our street. Poor Luke was in Oxford trying to study, and poor me was freaking out over the weather. Come to find out, we can't even hear the sirens all the way out here. Lovely.


The Kentucky Derby party was a hit! My cutie patootie friend, Elizabeth, hosted yet another fabulous partay.


Pretty Baby Girls!


Isn't this the funniest thing ever?
Cutest wreath! (see below :)
How cute is this girl?
The winners of the best dressed contest:
The girls! That girl in the middle in the turquoise needs a tan!We had a shower for my friend, Aundrea, to celebrate the upcoming birth of her son Ethan!


Look familiar? See here for a tutorial!
My sweet work friends! I love the people I work with!

The Mama to Be!
She is doing monkeys in the nursery, so we went with a jungle theme.
The girls. Kate was to'd Aundre stole her wheat thin. Dont mess with Big Girl's food.
I know I say this alot, but Kate loves dogs! She says "dawg!" all the time and is always trying to let them out. Babe is in the kennel, and poor Bandit is peaking over.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Just lounging on the way to church.
Do you think she likes this guy?

Lynne wasn't able to come to town for Aundrea's shower because of the flooding in Nashville, but she did come later that week. We were all so thrilled to meet Ellie! Isn't she a doll? We miss Lynne so much and wish she was here with us to love on that baby girl all the time!
Stinker at lunch:
The girls and our babies (minus Rylie and Drew)

When I held Ellie at lunch, Kate gave us a nervous fake laugh. How does she already know how to do that?Yes, Luke is still alive and a part of this family! He has been in the midst of exams and is finally done! WOOHOO!
Mmmm...Daddy made us pancakes!
I had the best Mother's Day even if it didn't pan out like Luke had planned. He had thought of an adorable idea to put Kate's handprints on a white scrub top for me to wear to work. Well, the art project went south when Kate enjoyed the taste of the paint more than putting it on the shirt. He had to go to Plan B :(
Needless to say, there is still paint on my bathroom tile :)
Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs... since the payment is pure love.

Andrew & I had a great laugh at the picture of you & Kate at the Derby where she looked so "thrilled!" She is such a little ham. I love her! How thoughtful was that of Luke to come up with the handprint idea? So sweet! Glad you had a good mother's day! CAN'T WAIT TO FIND OUT THE GENDER OF THE BABY! I'M JEALOUS!!!!
