Sweet Lei Lei

 This weekend, our friends, Amy, Tony and Leighann came to Mamaw and Papaw's to visit. Amy and Russell are cousins. We haven't seen them since this Winter! It had been way too long! We particularly missed Leighann, though. She will be two years old in July!!!
 Leighann enjoyed feeding her new baby doll. She is so smart and sweet. She was also our entertainment at dinner!
 Amy, Leighann, me
Russell had a good time with Leighann too! What can we say? We LOVE babies!!! Hope y'all have a great week!!!

American Idol Finale

 Well, American Idol, Season 10 has come to a close. Some people dropped out of watching the last episode, but they definitely missed out. Season 10 was absolutely the best season yet, in my opinion. Here are Lauren and Scotty at the beginning of the show.
 Before they announced the winner. Aren't they cute?
Right when Ryan Seacrest announced Scotty as the winner, Lauren and Scotty kissed! Then he sang his new single, "I Love You This Big". While he was singing and crying all at one time, he took the time to hug all his family and AI friends too, but said, "I Love you baby" to Lauren! I seriously think they may be a couple. But they still say they are "just friends". We will see. But I predict a serious relationship in the future! :) I have always loved Scotty's talent and personality on the show. He is a strong Christian and will be an awesome example for all of us. Congratulations to Scotty!!!!

Ultimate Girl's Weekend!

 Hope everyone had a great weekend! I stayed with my sister for her birthday weekend. We had a ball together! Kelly is a wonderful teacher. I visited her class and read a book, "Charlie the Ranch Dog," to the kids. It's a book by Ree Drummond a.k.a. The Pioneer Woman. It is a sweet and funny book for children. Friday night, Lauren and her friend, Maddie were invited to a music party complete with karaoke, laser lights and what else but pizza?!?! Here they are laughing! So fun!
 Lauren is a little ballerina, y'all. Look at her perform! We got to watch her practice on Saturday! It was also Kelly's birthday yesterday so a small group of us had a much needed girl's night out!
 Here we are! Kelly has heard this so much but she has always been my role model!
 Claudia, Mandy, Kelly and me! We had a great dinner at P.F. Changs and we just had so much fun talking and laughing, of course! HA!
 After dinner, we went to see the movie, Bridesmaids. We seriously laughed til we cried it was that funny!!!! It was an ultimate hilarious chick flick. I have not laughed that hard in a long time!
Lauren's ballet demonstration was this afternoon and she and her friends did a great job. I was so proud of her. Also, Logan played a big soccer game this weekend and he made several goals! Yay for him too! Aren't weekends the best? I hope y'all have a great week!
