Well, we skipped the Easter egg hunt Saturday because there were SO many people and no place to park. We regrouped and headed to the Birmingham Zoo. Bryan liked the animals, but I think he liked watching the people even more. :)

Good Friday

Mom, Mary Lynn, and Allison came up Thursday to visit for a couple of days. Bryan was so excited to see them pull up! Yesterday, Aunt Beth drove in from Chattanooga to visit for the day. She also brought Easter goodies for both babies. We had a wonderful visit. Thanks, Aunt Beth, for coming down.

In about 30 minutes we are off to the neighborhood Easter egg hunt. We should have some pictures up, in the album below, later today.

First and Last Days

We have been in our house for a week now and things are going great. We've had LOTS of help packing, loading, unloading, and unpacking. :) The Lord couldn't have made it any smoother than he did.

I created an album of pictures from our last days in Albany and some of the first in Alabama. Click the link below to view:

last night

I am laying in the bed, typing on my iphone, and thinking about my last night in our Albany house. It's kinda sad, but exciting at the same time. Matt has been in Birmingham 3 weeks too long without his family. it'll be fun to reunite in our new place to call home.

I found this neat thing I was going to post but I can't copy and paste so it'll have to wait, but it's about how this home is our Bethleham. It's where our little family began. (I'll post it as soon as we get a computer hooked up.) This is a house with so many memories!! one of the first is from May 2003 when my sister and all of us got ready here for her wedding day. there have been baby showers and wedding showers. we also had game nights every Tuesday night for over a year. Believing God, by Beth Moore was studied here!! (do you remember the 5 points??) Christmases and many birthdays have been celebrated here. one of the most special things was, of course, bringing Bryan home from the hospital. many of his "firsts" happened right here!!

I can't wait to share with you the many memories our new home will have in store!!

The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy!!

American Idol

I am watching American Idol right now and am loving a few of these performances. My favorites since the beginning of this season have been Jason (dreadlocks), Carly, and Brooke White. Chikezie had a great performance tonight as did David Cook. I may need to add them as favorites. :) Brooke is about to perform. Can't wait to see what she has in store.

Who is your favorite and who do you think will win?

*update* Brooke did awesome, as usual! she and carly are the best!! I'm not so sure about the girl with zebra hair! she's definitely not my favorite.

Last Blog Post in Albany...

This could very well be our last post while still in Albany, since I'm about to shut the computer down and pack it up. Jamie may do some small posts via her iPhone, but those don't count!

On a side note, I've recently started really using Twitter and Pownce and am even updating my Facebook status via Twitter. Since I'm using both of these, and I'd rather type in 1 status update than 2 or 3, I've found Hellotxt, which allows me to type in 1 status update and have it sent to multiple places (including some services I don't use like Jaiku, Plaxo, and Tumblr). It works very well!

If you're using Twitter or Pownce, add me as a friend!

Blog Carnival

Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer is doing a blog carnival all about dishes. So here is a picture of my favorite set. I bought them from Pier 1 in 1999 and still love them! I only have 8 place settings (dinner plate, bowl, and mug) and they aren't all complete because we've broken a couple. Unfortunately they are discontinued. They are impossible to find online without having to pay $20 a piece!! Maybe I should sell them. ha!

Dancing in the Street

Bryan was throughly enjoying himself Saturday at Albany's annual Mardi Gras celebration. His Kentucky roots were coming out as he was gettin' down to some bluegrass music.
