The other big news is that we are all moving to Virginia in a few weeks! Yep, we sold the house and we are moving to Virginia so Ryan can start graduate school at UVA.

Wonderful Weather!

Sorry that this is the first update in a while, we have been VERY busy. I wanted to catch up on sharing some pictures.
This picture is of a hiking trip we did on the Ashland City, TN greenway. It was a beautiful day, 70 degrees and sunny! Mary had a really good time.
Here Mary is just hanging out with Dad wearing Mommy's sunglasses, looking cool! (Mary, not dad)
A few days later, we got about 6 inches of snow overnight. Mary and Sam went out to play with the neighbor kids who were building a snow fort. Here our neighbor Joey is holding Mary. How do you like the look she is giving him??
Sam really enjoyed eating the snow!!

As you can see, both Mary and Sam had a really good time!!

MARY IS ONE YEAR OLD!! Mary turned one on February 28 - what a GREAT day! She had a wonderful birthday party with her friends last Saturday and she sure got spoiled. Thank you to everyone who sent her well wishes for her birthday. We've included a few pictures of her special day!

Mary loved her balloons that Uncle Ross, Auntie Jenn, Reagan and Alexander sent!

She had a great time playing outside with her friends and loved the balloon release!

Here is a picture of her butterfly cake. Her party was all butterfly themed! Thanks Kathryn for helping with the cake!!

As you can see she really cleaned up!! Mary had a great birthday and was spoiled just like she wanted it! Thank you to everyone!

Mary will be starting speech therapy this Friday. She says a lot and likes to have conversations with Daddy - especially in the evenings. She continues to smile and bring us joy every day. We love her so much! She is also very excited to get back to swimming next week! We are so proud of her and are so happy she is such a big girl - we can't call her a baby anymore!!
