Gala and other news

All dressed up for the Terry College of Business Awards Gala and Auction. It was fun to get dressed up and enjoy a nice dinner with my husband. Thanks to Jonathan for inviting us this year. The red shoes and purse are for my Grandpa. I told him I bought the shoes and he said I needed a purse to go with it. Such a fashion bug!

In other news, I am returning to work! Just four days a month and that's if they even need me. The census at work has been low (60's, when normally in the 90's). So, we shall see how it all goes. I'm excited to go back! It's been almost five months! Hope I remember what to do ;)

Funny Brother

A clip of Anna laughing at her big brother! She just starting giggling at him the other day for no reason. I only caught the tail end of it but it was so cute! Brice doesn't think he is part of the video when he runs away.

Life in 3D, Without a Nap

On Tuesday Brice got to go see Monsters vs. Aliens in 3D with his Nana, aka, his movie buddy. They go to the store prior to the movie so Brice can pick out some candy and then they go see a fun movie. This time, it was in 3D and he has been wearing the glasses ever since!




Below is what happens when my little darling does not get her naps in! We went to the park today because it was so nice out and I THOUGHT all the fresh air would just knock her out. Well, she did sleep on the way home (20 minutes) and that was it. She proceeded to let me know how she felt about me 1)putting her in her crib to finish the nap and 2) making dinner instead of holding her. This wasn't just crying, it was full blown screaming, choking with tears streaming down her face! Justin and I are in for it!

"Can I tell you something?"

Tonight Justin is in Adairsville doing an installation. Brice is in our bed because he spilled a ton of water in his bed and the sheets, pillows, mattress pad and mattress are soaked. Brice looks at me and says, "Can I tell you something?"

Me-"of course"

Brice-"I'm kind of sad."

Me-"About what?"

He leans close to my ear so he can whisper it, "I wish Daddy was here."

How does this child know just how to break my heart?

Four Months!

Hey all, Anna is now 11 pounds 5 ounces and standing tall at 24 inches. (9%tile and 42%tile). Dr. said she looks great and to start offering rice cereal. She took her two shots well and is currently taking a little snooze. I am going to go try and join her. Boot camp is kicking my "boot"y!

Easter Sunday

Checking out his candy.


Another Easter favorite.

The beautiful table complete with love from Aunt Lil and all her time put into making our table cloth and napkins. I missed her so much!

Mr. and Mrs. Peter Cottontail.

Another cute little bunny!

We had a great Easter weekend. Hunted eggs at the neighborhood "Eggstravaganza" on Saturday despite the wind and chill that came in as well as a major "owie" on Brice's knee. He was making sure the Easter Bunny wasn't coming near him and not watching what he was doing. It was not pretty. Anyway, Easter morning Brice came down to find eggs hidden all over the downstairs and had a great time hunting them. Justin made bacon and eggs for breakfast and we discussed the REAL reason we celebrate Easter! After that we prepared the house for Nana, Pa, Aunt Kelly and Uncle Greg. They all brought the food, which was delicious and we enjoyed every bit of it! The only thing left to say is~HE IS RISEN!

Also, not to be forgotten, Justin and I celebrated 7 years on Monday! We went back to Maggiano's like we try to do every year. The food is still fabulous and we had a great time, by ourselves! After dinner, we always go upstairs to where our reception was held and this year we were able to go in the banquet room. It was set up for an event so it was neat to be back in the very place we had been seven years ago. What a fun party we had! As we were leaving I told Justin we are going to have a 20th anniversary party there. I wonder if the same DJ will still be working? Let's hope so, then we can all take a turn dancing on the speakers!

Spring Break

This week for Spring Break we have just hung around the house for the most part. We did meet up with Erin, Maddox and Cooper at Chick-fil-A to eat and play even though the boys were more interested in eating! Otherwise it has been pretty low-key. Brice has become more and more brave around Anna, kissing her cheeks, pulling her up to a sitting position, and just playing with her more. Brice is also convinced that he doesn't sleep at night. He tells me this all the time. I told him the next time he fell asleep I would take a picture and below is the evidence! His response was, "Well, I still don't sleep ALL night long!". We are hosting Easter on Sunday even though Robin and Kelly are making all the food. I'm looking forward to it. I've actually been ready for Easter since Anna's hospitalization. When we were there I just wanted one glimpse into the future as to what our family would be like on Easter Sunday. I knew she would be stronger and we would no longer be under house arrest. And, now, here we are and I'm so excited for Sunday. I've always loved Easter, the celebration, the dresses, and the food too! Hope all of you have had a nice spring break (despite the snow!) and a HAPPY EASTER!




This is Brice in our tub. He was pretending it was a limosine. And those are all his passengers. "It's okay, I'm a limo driver"-Lloyd Christmas, Dumb and Dumber

This Week at the Reynolds'

Tulips from my sweetie! I just love tulips, any color. I had a little pity party for myself on Sunday where I just didn't feel like doing anything. I just wanted to be responsible for me, myself and I and not have to worry about any one else. Anyway, Justin must have felt bad enough for me because Monday evening he came home with flowers. Thanks, Justin!

Here are some pictures of Anna in her bouncy seat, trying to sit up in it. She thinks she is six months old. Crazy girl!



Brice actually "smiled" for the above picture. Below, I caught him off guard at his Easter Egg Hunt at school. He was very excited to have just found a T-rex egg.


Not sure what he was doing in the above picture, but I do know we had just watched "The Cat in the Hat" so... maybe there is some connection there. Same goes for the below picture.

Here is Anna holding a maraca from Venezuela, courtesy of Aunt Blaire. Brice was so excited that Anna was holding this by herself. He practically flew down the stairs to get my camera and then proceeded to call Nana to tell her all about it and asked her, "Aren't you proud of Anna for holding that maraca?". He is so paternal, it's hilarious. He told me today that he wanted to be a grown up because then he could be Anna's dad!! Poor girl is going to have three parents her entire life. I guess that will come in handy when the boys start circling!
