The goings on at Holly Hill

Jackson Turns 2!!
"I ride my horsey, Mommy"

Visiting Stephens family in Alabama!



The kids LOVED it, I thought it smelled bad.



She wanted us to but a chicken on the way home to live at the house!!





Being Silly!




Jackson's Very small birthday party :(







Anna and I have made it a habit that when I get off from work late, we go up and check on the progress of the house...I usually get off at 11pm, or 1 am....she likes her quality time with me ;)






This is Grant, my sister's "horse"....Madeline painted him.








Madeline also painted my sister....this is why it takes so long to get anything done....I love them!









For our anniversary, Stephen surprised me with a overnight stay at the Ellis hotel in Atlanta, it was the hotel that burned in the 40s and many people lost their lives....I wanted to stay and take a nap, but we went out anyway;)











I love him.









Our good friends, the Striplehoffs and their kids helped paint the house one day, when we were gone....when we came home, this was painted in our kitchen...too sweet!













The new mantle in the kitchen














The outside of the house...cannot wait till Landscaping time!!












Today was madeline's second day of pre 4 and jackson's first day of pre 2!! They are getting so BIG...it is sad, yet wonderful. I am so proud of them.
















Daddy and Jackson on his big day!!


















In the new house!!! My plan is to take their picture every year here!!! This is the staircase going up to the addition.....i am going to take some nice pics of the house, and post before and after pictures.














Hard to get one with them both smiling! The inspector comes today for the final....as soon as was pass that, we can move in!!!! So exciting!!!
