All is well in the Thornton household. I've been enjoying my two daughters so much!!! Ellie Jane spends most of the day awake. She loves to lie down and play on her activity mat. She is also very smiley!!! The only things Ellie Jane does not currently enjoy are dirty diapers and being hungry. Mary Paul continues to amaze me with how much she knows and can do. She currently loves to play Memory, High-Ho-Cheery-O and Candy Land. The other night at dinner, it started pouring down rain, but the sun was still shining. So, I jumped up, grabbed Mary Paul from the dinner table and ran outside to play in the rain on the deck. We had a blast and hopefully, made a memory. It was one of those moments when I felt like a great mom!!! Enjoy the pictures of the girls!!!

A Smile, A Redneck Bathroom and Two Birthdays

We have been so busy!!! Things in our home have been breaking, Ellie Jane is starting to smile and we went to two birthday parties. Below you can see the first picture we have of Ellie Jane smiling. Her smiles are getting much bigger and are occurring much more often. Our air conditioner was out of coolant so we had no air for several days (while it was in the high 80s) and then our toilet broke in the guest bathroom. Who knew a toilet tank could get a crack in it. How does that happen. I came home to find my bathroom looking like this. How redneck can you get? Needless to say, we have a new toilet and the bathtub is empty.

Landon turns, count the candles, five!!! We had a great party with lots of fun. I just focused on pictures of Landon since he was the birthday boy!!!

Claire, my sister-in-law's daughter, turned 1 year old. Crazy. We had a great birthday in Atlanta and loved seeing family. Bryan's Aunt Debby drove up from Valdosta to meet all the Thornton grandgirls. This was their first time to meet Aunt Debby, and they loved her!!!
