Ainsley's 1st Circus April 10, 2010

Gigi, Papa, Ainsley, Daniel and I went to the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus today at the BancorpSouth Arena in Tupelo, MS. This was Ainsley's first circus and probably the 2nd time for the rest of us! It was a wonderful show and Ainsley loved it!

SURPRISE Retirement Party April 2010

My Daddy is retiring from Belle Elementary and the Aberdeen School District after working there for 30 years. The party consisted of my Dad's current 2nd and 3rd grade teachers, my Mom, Daniel, Ainsley and me. There were so many more people we would have liked to invite, but it was impossible to pull of that kind of surprise and find a location to house all the people he has worked with over the years. We had lots of laughs and lots of tears, but he was totally surprised!! Each grade put on a skit and my Mom and I each read something we had written for my Dad.

Mrs. BJ Gadd make the cake. She used to teach for my Dad.

The beautiful table.

Easter 2010

Easter was wonderful, as you can tell by the pictures. (I loved them all, so I could not stop uploading them!)

Ainsley said "The Easter Bunny brought me a basket? That's so nice."

Ainsley loves to find chocolate in her eggs.

Dressed in our Easter best!

Finding more Easter eggs.

Ann Elise found the biggest egg of all... a soccer ball!

I think she is just as cute from the back as she is from the front.

Beautiful little girl.

What a cutie pie! I love this one.

Ainsley said Wes was her best friend. He was thrilled.

Dying Eggs

I thought Ainsley would be really excited to dye Easter eggs, but she could have cared less, until she saw the stickers, then she was thrilled. Up till now she has only seen plastic eggs and most of them had candy inside, so I did not know how this would work out for us. Well it did not work out very well for about 4 of the 12 eggs we dyed. Ainsley stuck her finger right through the shell. She did try to eat the hard boiled egg, but spit it out immediately. If only the egg could have been chocolate flavored!!

Look at my pretty eggs.

Ainsley stuck her finger right though the egg to see what was inside.

Another casualty.

Easter Egg Hunt 2010

Our Church had an Easter egg hunt today and the weather was perfect. Ainsley had the best time. Not only did she find eggs, but they played pin the tail on the rabbit, got to go fishing for prizes, had a puppet show and ate lots of good food.

Cute food table.

Check out that tattoo.

Ainsley loved finding eggs.

Look at all those eggs.
