Father's Day 2017

After a little morning golf, Drew spent the remainder of his Father's Day playing the game of Life for the 100th time, cooking for all of us, dealing with a leaking A/C vent and fishing a lost tooth out of a drain.  The twins did however setup a party in his honor.  We are so lucky he is ours.

Grandmother

My grandmother passed away on May 24th surrounded by her children.  She has always provided support to me in a way that cannot be replaced.  I will miss her dearly.

Here a few things that my Grandmother has taught me over the years....
  1. Always have a pot of red beans going when family is coming over
  2. Sperm swims
  3. Just because you disagree doesn't mean you have to disconnect
  4. When a husband dies, buy a new house
  5. "It's now or never..."
  6. Don't ask the same the question multiple times.  It annoys people
  7. While gambling can pay your taxes, watch your back when you hit a jackpot
  8. Making fudge is really hard.  You will probably have to throw out a few batches
  9. Real love is not easy and there will be bumps in the road
  10. Education is important.  Push yourself further
  11. Girls can fish too
  12. I'm way too loud and talk way to fast
  13. Being a twin is special and I'm lucky that God gave me a boy and girl

Peace Out Preschool

The twins had their preschool graduation from St. Paul's Day School.  This school has been such a blessing to our family and I will forever be grateful to them for helping to instill Jesus in my little ones' hearts.

Easter 2017

We had a fun-filled but laid-back Easter at the Smith house.  The twins had their Easter hat parade at school and we did an Easter egg hunt at East Ridge.  The Easter Bunny left the twins sweet treats and we enjoyed brunch with their cousins.
