Spring Has Sprung

A few weekends ago, our town had its annual Spring Festival. We decided to take Little Miss and enjoy the beautiful weather, glorious flowers, eat fatty booth food, and see some awesome friends.

It was such a beautiful day and we had a great time.  Gracelyn loved seeing and picking all the flowers. All she wanted to do was eat them.  I found a beautiful handmade wooden G for Gracelyn's room.  I have no where to hang it, but I am sure I will find a spot. 

Well, that is all for tonight.  I must get to bed earlier...5:15 comes very early. I pray you all have a blessed night.~~Farah

Go Cubs, GO!

Over my spring break, Matt and I took Gracelyn Faith to her first Chicago Cubs game on Opening Day at Turner Field. It was an awesome, very hot, exciting day.
Gracelyn seemed to really enjoy the game. I thought she would since she is such a “watcher”. She sat on my lap and checked everything out for most of the game.

Gracelyn got as red as a lobster at one point so I just did what any sane mother would do…put her into the sink! After excusing ourselves to the front of the extremely long bathroom line, I quickly plopped my lobster baby in the nasty sink. Little Miss slashed a bit, I put wet napkins on her head and neck, people stared and whispered and then …she was back to her peachy self. That is what you call parenting at its best!

We are planning a trip to Chicago in July and plan to take Gracelyn to a home game while we’re there....shhhh, don't tell Matt's mom.  It's a surprise! A Cubs game at Wriggle Field was one of our first dates when Matt took me to meet his family for the first time....aww, the memories.  As you may recall, Matt wanted to name Gracelyn-- Wriggle at one point. I am glad I did not give in on that one.

Well, that's all for now. I hope all is fantastic in your world. 
God Bless~~~Farah
