Sweet Girl

I've been sick and Shelby knew I didn't want to get out of bed. So when she needed a diaper change she brought me a diaper, wipes and her whole changing station and the proceeded to lay on it! What a cutie!

Horses in the Bible!

Shelby was in her room playing quietly. She came to me a few minutes later so excited to how me the horse she found in her Bible!

Taco Bell

Whoever thought of this is a genius! ;)

Coffee Shop Friend

We went to a MOPS outing with my table to a coffee shop. Shelby found a friend to play with. They kept turning around and laughing...silly girls!

Keepsake Quilt

I took all the old tshirts that were special to Jason but in too bad of shape to wear and made him a tshirt quilt. My friend Marianne A. helped me a great deal with the project and I couldn't have done it without her! She lent me her sewing machine and helped me to plan the whole project.
And there's nothing like drinking tea, a lite girl talk and quilting!

Jason loves it!

Sweet Friend

My sweet friend from La Vernia, Dulce, surprised I with a package of goodies a few weeks ago!
She included lots of princess goodies for Shelby. And sent me lots of bath stuff and dried chiles so make can make the homemade enchilada sauce she taught me to make in the authentic Mexican way.
It was a lovely surprise!


Shelby's latest artwork that she drew while in the church nursery.

Whole Foods

The other day Shelby and I enjoyed browsing at Lynnwood's new Whole Foods. They have a great kids section with a chalkboard wall, building blocks and lots of books. They also have a wagon of free fruit for the kids!

Parking the cars

"I'm parking my car, Mommy!"

Shelby was playing with her cars and lined them up perfectly at an angle and informed me that she was parking the car! She's so smart!!!

All better

Today Shelby is as good as new!


Shelby had her first real illness on Friday the 23rd when she woke us by throwing up all over our bed and bedroom floor. Jason went to work and I started cleaning up and making Shelby a makeshift bed on the couch.

Jason was working and couldn't get away to go to the store so a sweet friend, Jennifer B., offered to bring us everything we needed! She dropped off Sprite, Gatorade, Pedialite, and Saltines. She wouldn't even let me reimburse her!

Shelby spent all day watching Dora and drifting in and out of sleep. She had fever and looked pitiful. Daddy brought his sweet girl home a beautiful rose.

I checked on her at 2:30am Saturday morning and she still had a fever so I have her some more medicine, a sip of Sprite and change her diaper. Then she went right to sleep again. She awoke Saturday morning good as new and her spunky old self!

Playing Ball with Daddy!
