Yeah we moved into our house! I'm sorry I do not have pictures. We do not have the internet and I have not figured out how to post pictures from my phone. Anyways so James and I have decided that every Saturday night we are going to try a new drink. If anyone want to join please come over. Don't worry they're alcohol free. I bought two different books of non-alcoholic drinks so we decided that we will try a new one every week. This past week we had blushing virgins. They were so good I am actually drinking one right now as I type this up. I am going to post the recipes and if you try any of the recipes I post please let me know what you thought about it. But it would be best if you would just join us for our Saturday night drinks. Maybe play a little poker too.
Lemon wedge for rimming
coarse sugar for rimming
1/4 cup no sugar added pomegranate juice
1 TB fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 grapefruit juice (Squirt)
lemon slice for garnish
rub the lemon wedge around the rim of your glass. I chose to use a marti glass. Then dip the rim in the sugar.
Fill the rimmed glass with ice. Add juices and serve garnished with the lemon slice.
Now I actually like it better with out the lemon juice. I don't know If my lemon was bad but I thought it tasted better with no lemon juice. Well I hope you enjoy, and please feel free to come over saturdays to join us for drinks

So tonight as I was brushing my teeth and itylee came into the bathroom with a box of tampons humming a song and then looked up at me and said "I'm cleaning your room" then she continued on humming a little song and walked back to my room. I was like YES i'm traing her soooo well. so I decided to follow her as I saw that she had put anything that was on my floor and threw it in the hallway. It made me laugh then I decided to take advantage of her genorisity and told her that everything needed to come back in my room from the hallway and in a cute little cheerful voice she said"okay" and continued on with her humming. It was so fun to sit and watch her as I sat on my bed to see her come in and just kind of stuff things in places and when she didn't know where she would put it she would ask me where to put it and then she'd continue to hum her little song until she was finished and with a big slump of her shoulder and a big humph of relief she said "few, i'm pooped" I have to say she did a pretty good job too. I am so grateful for her. She just fills my heart with happiness. And i'm not only saying that cuz I got a free cleaning out of her but because I didn't even have to ask her and that at 2 years old she knew what needed to be done and she did it out of the kindness of her heart and all while humming a cute little song and a smile on her face. Bet your all jelous now aren't ya.

Before I forget to write this down last night I was reading a book about easter to Itylee and we came to a page with Jesus on the cross and she said "oh Jesus hurts. Oh he's up up up on it. Don't worry Jesus I love you" and with that she blew him a Kiss. She continued to blow him kiss the whole time I read the page. Then the next page was when Jesus was coming out if the tomb and she said "Jesus saved! Mommy and you saved too." I just love how much she really understand even though she is soo young. I am so blessed to have such a sweet spirited girl.

So Itylee has been doing dance for about a month now and she is loving it. It is so fun to watch her grow up. For the 2-year-old class they decided not to give them a performance dress so Kelli (Isabell's mother from dance) Decided that the girls needed something to wear so we got together and made all those tutu's and bows it took 3 days but we did it and they are so cute!
She is sits so good for me to do her hair I love it.
