Out Of The Mouth's Of Babes 02/24/08
By Susie Devries
Friday night I kept my grand daughter Autumn over night. She had been invited to a birthday party on Saturday and I was taking her. Mom has the flu, dad has an infected wisdom tooth.
So as the evening progresses, Autumn does like every other toddler and goes faster and faster as she gets more tired. She had been laying on the couch beside me but got up and I told her she needed to sit and be very still for a while. She sat down, looked at me and said 'but I'm just a child!' I was so surprised and found that to be so cute. She did give up and go to sleep in the crib and slept all night but oh man was she funny the night before.

Presidential Library 02/18/08
By Susie Devries
Today was President's Day and Bill had the day off. Here in Little Rock is the Clinton Library. Today only was free admission. Highlight of going was a replica of the White House! It was fantastic to say the least. We waited in line with many other people for about a half hour to get to see this thing up close and personal.

Update 02/01/08
By Lisa Lawrence
Lexi and I are doing good... I started working this past week at Home Depot as a cashier. I really like it! Great benefits even at part time.
Lexi is teething, she has a runny nose and bad diaper rash again. She started daycare this week also and seems to really enjoy it. She doesn't even think twice when I drop her off. Lexi ate scrambled eggs this morning with her banana. She also walked all around the coffee table today.
