So this year, in an effort to have better luck going forward, we tried the tradition of eating black eyed peas on New Years day. Ugh, is all I have to say about those yucky peas. Olive had the same opinion.
They didn't look so bad at first.
Then Daddy force fed her one and it was a pretty dramatic reaction!
He won her over again by showing her that by banging the side of the bowl with her spoon, she could make beautiful music!
Stephen and I were married in December of 2004. We met through a very persistent friend who insisted that if we met, we would get married. Sure enough, he was right and 7 months later we said I do! In the years since, we have suffered great loss but are learning daily to rely on God and each other, knowing that we can rise to use tragedy for good! We welcomed Olive Kay into the world in August of 2009 and our lives haven't been the same since! She is a firecracker and makes every day worth waking up for! On her 3rd birthday, we found out we were going to be blessed with another little one. Nora Kate joined our family in April of 2013 and has brought even more joy into our lives! We can't wait for the adventures we will have with the two of them.
