Andrew graduated from Tennessee Tech University's MBA program a few weeks ago. We are so proud of him. He has worked so hard to get his MBA degree, while working full time.

We had planned to go to Andrew's graduation ceremony, then head on a mini vaca to Gatlinburg for a long weekend. Well, we missed the whole shebang! We were at the doctor with Lola that morning, another double ear infection & an extremely high fever. We decided to stay close to home since she was so sick.

I did make him put on the cap & gown for a few photos in front of our house. Notice poor Lola in all the photos, you can tell she doesn't feel good.

How handsome

So glad to have Daddy back to ourselves!

Brantley's 1st Baves Game

A few weekend's ago, Uncle JC treated us to Brantley's first Brave's game. And when I say treated, boy did he go all out. Tickets, valet parking, air-conditioned window seated lunch, ice cream, etc., etc. Thanks JC for everything, we had a wonderful time. It was a PERFECT spring day to be at a ball game, the weather was amazing. We showed up to the field an hour or so early to catch JC in action at the pre-game show, so I thought we might make it until the 4th inning, 5th inning tops. The kids were so good, we made it until the 9th inning!

Easter 2011

We were able to get a few really good photos after church, love my babies

On Saturday night we sat out our baskets & a few carrots for the Easter Bunny, hoping he would hop by our house.... & he did! And yes, she is in her Christmas PJ's, all her choosing!

The Easter goods

Dying eggs

This was at our church Easter Egg Hunt. Total concentration on the candy!

Brantley 5 months

He is our 'wild man' as we like to say. He is so active, always moving (even in his sleep) & watching that silly sister of his.

I think he weighs around 18 lbs & is almost as long as Lola.

Loves chewing on his toes, watching balloons, being outside (when his allergies permit), and being anywhere in his exersaucer.

Hates naps!
