Boring is good May 30, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mandy Beam @ 2:48 am
I was looking through my pictures tonight to see what I could post pictures of, and realized that we pretty much have not done anything for the last couple of weeks. I have to say, I don’t mind one bit. I have started a new job in the Neonatal ICU that I am loving, and other than that we have just been savoring the last few days of school. This is the only picture I really liked…it is tough being a boy in a girly world. Yes, he did this himself (I was in the other room trying to keep Lillie out of the kitchen cupboard.) Happy Summer!!


She’s Getting Married!! May 18, 2009

My best friend is FINALLY getting married. And not only do I get to stand with her as she pledges herself to a wonderful man, she also asked me to take a few pictures of her and her man. We had such a great time at the park, and although this picture doesn’t show their faces, it speaks volumes about who they are. Erin, James – I love you guys!

Here is a really short video of Lillie singing her favorite song. She realizes pretty quick that the camera is on her and starts acting silly, but one day I will catch the whole song….she is growing up so quick.


Just Because We Could

Thank goodness for a break in the rain. Yesterday we went to Granny and Grumpy’s house to celebrate no rain….they have the funnest back yard. Lucky for us, Grumpy has thousands of tadpoles on his pool cover, so it provided some great entertainment for the evening. Here is Madison fishing for tadpoles (we are thinking about signing her up to do some good ol’ Oklahoma noodling this summer.)
Here is a sample of her catch. We had some great conversation about how tadpoles eventually become frogs. How thankful we are for a God that is wonderfully creative!!
Does any one else see mischief in this sweet little face???

Eli is Grumpy’s big helper. And no, Grumpy doesn’t do his yard work in only his underwear.


Four Wheel Fun May 2, 2009

One great thing about our house is that we live right next to a small dirt track that is perfect for Madison to ride her four wheeler on. Here are a couple of pictures of us riding.

Lonely Lillie has no helmet and therefore, cannot ride – this is not something that makes her very happy.
