We are official Florida residents...again!

Last Thursday we packed up the truck and headed down to Panama City. A special thanks to my Mom, Dad, Becca, and Brad Spencer for helping us pack up the truck. Allan drove down to Panama City with Jimmy in the U-haul and my sister, mom and I cleaned up the house. Becca followed me down to PC that night, we had to talk on the phone all the way down just to stay awake. We closed on our house on Friday morning and started moving in right away. Allan's family was a huge help, along with my friend Mandy, Auntie, and Becca. Friday night Allan started working on the pool and was even able to take a dip. Saturday is such a blur, Becca helped me around the house and we ran all over town picking up stuff for the house. We also tried to figure out all kinds of stuff that he house came with.( I HATE garage door openers that don't work!)  We all took a dip in the pool Saturday afternoon, it took Jimmy a little bit to get use to it, but he ended up loving it. I even wet off our diving board! Sunday morning, my sister was sweet enough to get up with Jimmy and let us sleep in. Becca, Lacy, Lauren, Mr. Branch, Mrs. Branch, and myself went out on the boat on Sunday and rode the seadoo! I had everyone over last night for dinner and board games. Today was the hardest day for me, because my sister had to go home. She was such a wonderful helper and my best friend. Becca being here helped me more than she will ever know. Thank you Becca and everyone else that has kept us in their thoughts and prayers. 


( I still hate faulty garage door openers and if anyone can explain to me how to change the outside password, it would be greatly appreciated!)

Branch Look-alike Meter

HAHAHAHA!!! I love the fact that this did not help our debate on who Jimmy looks like!

MyHeritage: Family tree - Genealogy - Celebrity - Collage - Morph

My new chair!

For Christmas my dad gave me my Great Grandmother's old chair that I have always wanted. I had it recovered and fixed. I am absolutely in love with how it turned out!

Diaper Shower for Amy











Today I helped throw a surprise baby shower for my friend Amy. She thought she was coming to a going away party for me, LOL! She had no idea, and wondered why her mother-in-law was there when she pulled up. She is due the beginning of June with another little girl. We had a great turn out with lots of her friends and family there.

A month of Packing

I made this little video today on www.animoto.com, it shows some of the fun things Jimmy has done his last month in Birmingham. I really like this site, and it was very easy to use, and then It uploaded it to my youtube account for me.

Handle with Care

I have been packing like a wild woman, and packed very fragile cargo yesterday. Please handle with care, he is a wild beast!!!



Who did it?

Now,  did my 16 month old child do this or my 328 month old husband do this to his son?

Ok Aunt Boo


I received a phone call from my sister today mad because I had this picture on our Flickr account, but not on my blog. She said it was just to cute of a picture not to post it.

Helping Mommy

Last night Jimmy wanted to help me do the dishes. I turned around and then he was sitting in the dishwasher. I wonder if someone could come up with a babywasher?





Houston we have a problem!

Jimmy loves putting these on so that he does not have to listen to us? Ear Muffs!!!! (Old School) Is this a sign that as a teenager he really is not going to listen?

Moving Day

Well once again, we have changed our moving day. We are leaving Birmingham on April 24th, yep two weeks from today! We close on April 25, and will come back to Birmingham on May 1st to get the house ready to put on the market. Please let us know if you know anyone interested in a fantastic house, priced to sell, with all new updates in it. www.YourHelenaHouse.com 

It's 5 o'clock somewhere....

Today Lauren, Jimmy and I ate lunch at the new Margaritaville! We had a wonderful time and the atmosphere was fantastic. Jimmy loved his parrot mask and got a kick out of it when we put it on. Panama City has just opened a new shopping center called Pier Park, with all kids of new shops and restaurants. So anyone who comes to visit I have a great new place to take you to. 








Water Boy!

Jimmy loves to play with the Culligan water bottles at the Branch's house. What a cute little water boy!

This afternoon Aunt Lauren took us to a cool park in Panama City. 
Jimmy had a blast and loved running around. Thank you Aunt Lauren!!


Doing Math!

Thank the Lord for Aunt Boo and Nana

Allan was out of town this weekend, so Aunt Boo came in town to help with Jimmy. Becca was sweet enough to help feed and bath Jimmy all weekend. On Saturday I had a garage sale and a wedding to go to. Jimmy took at 2.5 hour nap on Becca's chest. Sunday we all went to the zoo and Chuck E Cheese with Nana. We now know why parents do not like to take their kids to Chuck E Cheese (that place is the zoo). Jimmy had a great time playing and running all over the place.












Monday Becca took Jimmy to the park and to lunch with Grandpa. I packed all day on Monday and was able to get so much done. Monday night my mom made our favorite meal growing up, ham, mac n cheese, and peas!!!! Tuesday Becca took Jimmy to Gymboree and got a good laugh when Jimmy fell in the ball bucket and his feet were kicking around in the air. This afternoon Jimmy, Murphy and I drove down to Panama City to visit with the Branch's. We will be back in town on Friday morning, with lots to do before the big move. I don't know how to thank my sister enough for all that she did while she was in Birmingham. I love my sister so much, thank you Becca!!!!

Outside Playing

This afternoon we were outside playing with Jennifer, Robert, Caleb and Zoe. Allan took these really cute pictures of everyone playing. You have to love this weather!!! Yes, Jimmy's outfit is crazy, he had just woken up from a nap.
