Playing at Central Park

Finally beautiful has arrived and is here to stay!!

We took full advantage of the fantastic weather this morning by going to the park to play. We invited Genevieve to come with us. The girls had a blast. You can see from their rosy, red cheeks it was HOT!!!

Medical Woes Continue...

So apparently Hollis is allergic to penicillin!

Take look and you be the judge...

Our House

This past weekend I tried to earn my keep a little by helping Todd in the yard. We spread mulch in all our beds and around our trees. We did this in our last house and just love the look of it. Personally, we just think it continues to look fresher longer than pinestraw... but that is just us!

I thought I would show you our house... I think the last picture I posted was before we even moved in. Anyhow, I love when the weather is warm enough for the ferns to be hung on the front porch. Don't know why I love this so much... Just do I guess!!

I also wanted to post some pictures of the bulbs that came up this spring. I have never done bulbs before and feel so good that they actaully came up! I/Todd must have done something right.

And, lastly I posted a picture of a door decoration thing I made today. I need your opinion, is it too big for the door? I like it, but do not know if I should have gone with the smaller basket size!?!? I can always take it back to get the smaller one!!!

P.S. Make sure you read all of my new posts! I have done 10 in the last two days!!

6. The Lake
7. A girl after my own heart
8. Easter

Ice, Ice Baby

She's got more rhythm than her mom already!!

Two things I love about this video:
1. It looks like she is singing along!
2. When you listen to a video from the Masterson family there is usually worship music on in the background... this is what you get at the Fahring house! I wonder if the Lord approves??


We had such a great time for Easter. We were fortunate that our family could all come to our house! I know the girls ate up all the attention!!

A girl after my own heart!

Allyn loves books!
For some real cheap entertain I unleash her in the library.
During our last visit she checked out 18 books!! I had to limit her to this amount! She would have checked out half the children's book section if I would have let her.
Here is a video of her reading her favorite one that she checked out! It is Bernstien Bears, "Bears in the Night"

The lake!!

Every year for spring break we load up and head to the lake. For seven years now my great friend Jessica has been able to come with me! Every year we have a great time and this year was no exception!!

Things were a little hectic at the start and the weather was trying to misbehave, but by the end of the week a good time was had by all!!

She's on the MOVE!!!!!

My world just got a little crazier!!!

She is growing up too fast!!

There are times in the day that I just look at Allyn and I am amazed at how quickly she is changing!
I tried to take some pictures of this new big girl!!
(She loves her hair in braids now! What a goof!!!)


Here is a cute video of Allyn singing Tomorrow and one of Hollis swinging.


Allyn got her ears pierced and could not be more proud of her new earrings!

Todd and I talked about this day probably before she was ever born and decided we would let her pierce her ears when she asked us to. When she started asking me that morning, I called Todd and we decided why not!
She was great! She hardly cried and looked in the mirror every chance she got! It makes her look so grown up! That toddler is slowing fading away into a girl!

Hollis' First Plane Ride

At the end of March there was a memorial service for Todd's dad in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Since we were only going for a short time and flights were very expensive we only took Hollis with us. Also, we were on the go so much there would have been no way Allyn could have kept up. We left the hotel early and did not get back until late. The good thing about Hollis is she is still at that stage where she can sleep anywhere!
This was the first time we have taken either girl on a plane. Hollis was awesome. She slept the entire way out there and then entertained half the plane on the ride home!
Here are some pictures!!
