Pitty Flowie

Okay, not much going on here. Bill's time is pretty much all taken up with school. I get through the week thanks to mutual on Tuesday nights and our playgroup on Wednesdays. We were at the store the other day and I was really excited to see tulips! Yay! I bought some and Jaci was completely fascinated. She kept begging me for a pitty flowie (pretty flower). I gave her one and got some pretty cute pictures. Today she wanted another one and she said, "want flowie", so she's starting to put words together more. That's the first time I've heard her say "want". I can't believe how big my little girl is getting and how long her hair is! She is such a sweetie! She loves to try and count things. Anything she finds that there is a bunch of she counts "1,2,3,5,8,9,8,9,8,9...10" She gets stuck like a broken record on "8,9", it's pretty funny!

I taught my first lesson today in Young Womens and I think it went pretty well. I was nervous until I actually started teaching and then I was calm and it went great. It didn't hurt that I made cinnamon rolls for the girls. What can I say? If I have to buy their love with yummy things then I will!

We are headed down to the New Orleans area in a couple of days for Mardi Gras. We're going to see some family friendly parades. I don't understand why it's so exciting, but Bill gets 2 days off school for it, so that's good I guess.

Things are going well down here in Louisiana! We still miss our family, but things are definitely improving!

Jill, what a cute that Jaci is! It's amazing how much she's grown since I saw her last, and how much she's talking. Wow. Isn't being a mom the greatest? Oh, wait. Being a grandma's the greatest, but being a mom is a close second... Did you enjoy Mardi Gras? We used to love going to those, even got to go to one ball. Now that was an experience!

Oops - I meant what a cutie! So much for not proof reading.

Congratulations on the Young Women's lesson, its been so long since I've seen you I think I need to be pacified with a cinnamon roll. I can't believe how big Jaci is getting!
