We had dinner with the Jones' (Rodney's mom and family) last night and you never know what funny thing Holly and Krista will come up with to do. The project last night...measuring wing spans. Apparently when you hold your arms all the way out and measure from finger tip to finger tip, that is your height. None of us believed that it actually was true, so we had to try it. Krista and I were correct within an inch, Holly and Rodney were off by quite a bit (Rodney's wing span was 6' 2", actual 5' 10"). Paisley however was perfect... 30 inches wing span and actual height! So cute!
Yes, that is me with a power tool. I acutally handled the drill quite well my husband says. I told him I've just never been given the opportunity. Once we got the pack 'n play out for her I could actually help Rodney some.
Our little house from the back. Rodney carrying a section of fence. Our house will look so different without everything white. I can't wait to get that project started.
Here is one section all nice and complete. We actually have all of it done now except for the gate which Rodney is still contemplating how to build. So, in a week Rodney (with my supervision...hahaha!) fenced in our entire back yard for Paisley. We are all looking very forward to just letting her play without constant chasing!!!!! I will take the final pictures this week and post those soon.
Our sweet little girl playing outside and having fun with her aunts and family.
Chuck and Teresa (Rodney's aunt).
Rebecka and Sarah (Rodney's sisters).
Grams and Bob (Rodney's grandparents).
Our sleepy girl about 5 minutes down the road. She had so much fun but was completely wore out!
So...Rodney has quite a big family. His dad has 4 girls (Rebecka, Sarah, Ericka, and Terah). His mom has 2 daughters (Holly and Krista). Rodney also has 2 step-brothers (Will and Lincoln). Lots of siblings and lots of Aunts and Uncles for Miss Paisley (including Jordan also). We are so fortunate to both have such wonderful families!!!!!

On Saturday night we went out for Mother's Day also. We went to Buca di Beppo. It is a great Italian restaurant where the food is served family style. Great meal and some great photo opportunities! Here they are...
By far the best purchase in a while. They are great for church and other "quiet" places. I have only found them at Wal-Mart, and only 2 sets so far. They are little dolls with snap on clothes and hats. One has a high chair and the other has a bath tub. Paisley thinks they are so funny.
We went to Nana and Pop's for hamburgers tonight. Paisley suddenly became interested in the woodbox in the living room. She was sitting in it on her own, it was so cute! Who knows why her mouth is open like that...she's one goofy girl!
The school year is coming to a close. Only 7 more days!!!!! Can't wait to spend some quality time with Paisley. She is at such a fun age right now, changing and doing something new every day it seems like. Looking very forward to SUMMER!
