All Dressed Up!

A few weeks ago, my good friend Bart got married...FINALLY! I was excited because it was a good excuse to get dressed up! And as you moms know, those ocassions don't happen very often! I even painted my toenails...I was like a new woman!!! The wedding was beautiful and we were able to visit with many friends we hadn't seen in years!

Here is Kandace and I.

This is me and my gorgeous husband Jerid!

The Seasons of Layne

Since I just started my blog, I thought I would share some pics of Layne from the past several months. This first one is on Halloween. Layne is a little peacock! Don't ask me how I came up with this! Many of you know that most of my ideas are a little out there!

This is Layne in her Christmas dress...she thought she was pretty fancy!!!

Here Layne is eating her birthday cake...I think she likes it!

Layne had so much fun on her 1st birthday that she fell asleep on her "Rockin Elephant" that Jerid and I got her.

This is Layne on Easter morning rumaging through what the Easter Bunny left her. She wore these bunny ears most of the day!

This is Layne hunting Easter eggs after church in Woodward. She was so proud that she "found" five eggs! The older kids were so sweet! They were careful not to pick up any of the eggs around her.

My First Post

Those of you who know me know that I am not a writer. I am not witty or creative. And I am very much vocabulary- challenged. I decided to start a blog because I enjoy reading everybody's blogs and I thought this would be a good way to keep family and friends updated. I have been married to my husband Jerid for almost 5 years and we have an amazing daughter Layne who turned one on January 30th. I spent the last several years teaching 7th grade Geography, but decided to stay home with Layne this year. It has been an unforgettable experience and I have enjoyed nearly every moment of it, but I have decided that Layne and I both need to interact with people our own ages. So, I will be starting a new adventure working for Kandace's management company while Layne learns to socialize with others. I will try to post as often as possible, but probably not as much as Mandy...I have to say, I am very impressed! Hope you enjoy!!!
