Martha's 3rd Birthday

The same weekend as the christening, we celebrated Martha's 3rd birthday with Pancakes on the Porch in our PJ's painting pumpkins!!!!!
Here is the birthday girl concentrating on her work of art!

Martha asked for a Dora bike.

We had a lot of family here to celebrate! Here are some of the Moss cousins working on their pumpkins. And Charlie Thomas working on his!

Amy's Christening

Amy was christened the weekend of Oct. 25 at the First United Methodist Church in Brownsville. We were honored to have all of our siblings, cousins, grandparents and other family and friends there to celebrate with us! What a special time in her life! After the service, we ate lunch at Mamie and Bop Bop's house and had a great day!

We had a great time in Greenville this past weekend for Lilly' Grace Thomas's christening. Jamie and I are honored to be her godparents. The weekend passed too quickly with a baby shower for Amy Cobb Slater on Saturday and the christening festivities on Sunday. Elizabeth, Martha and Amy loved being with their cousins, Charles and Lilly and of course with Rho Rho and Gigi.

Elizabeth's First Day of School

We have a school girl!!! Elizabeth is now in kindergarten! She is now through her first week and did great! We are so proud of her! She has got a great teacher and is making new friends everyday.

Carpenter Cousins

We went to visit Rho Rho & Gigi when Amy was 2 weeks old. All the cousins had a ball playing together. Lilly who is 3 days younger than Amy & Charlie (19 months old) were definitely missed when we had to come home!

Baby Amy Moss Carpenter

She's here! And I can't believe it has taken me this long to put it on the blog! Amy was born June 19 at 3:55pm and weighed 7 lbs. 9 oz. She is a perfect angel and we are all enjoying her so much! The girls are both doing great with her. Elizabeth is very helpful and Martha wants to hold her all of the time! What a joy they are to Jamie and me!

Still "on" for Thursday

Elizabeth and I had a "girls day out" today in Memphis and went to our last doctor's appt. She was dying to use a Build-A-Bear gift certificate she got for her birthday and so Mamie kept Martha at home. Elizabeth is such a joy to be with. We rode the carosel at Wolfchase SEVERAL times and just enjoyed being together. Dr. Donato said I am 3 cm dialated and everything looked great with the baby! I will go in Thurs. at 7:30am to be induced...unless Amy decides to make her arrival before then! We cannot wait to meet this precious new gift we are receiving! What a blessing!!

Baby Time

I went to the doctor last Friday and she scheduled my induction for Thurs., June 19. Baby Amy will be here then...if not before! I go to the doctor again this Friday for my last checkup!

Moss Beach Reunion 2008

We had another great year at the Moss Beach Reunion! The girls went for the whole week with Mamie and Bop Bop and I was so glad to get to go...thanks to Tra and his pilot Justin...and spend a few days (37 weeks pregnant!) with the Moss clan! It is such a special time to get to be with family...and there is no place like The Mariner (good call Helen!).

We recently went fishing with our friends, The Stowes and although we didn't catch anything, we had a great time!

Bop Bop stopped by with a snake he had caught to show the girls.

Elizabeth loved it and carried it to a tree to let it go.

Martha wasn't as brave, but loved "Slimy the worm!"

Mamie & Bop's "Swimming Pool"

The girls love to help Mamie and Bop water the flowers...any excuse to use the water hose!!! And they also discovered a "swimming pool" that they love to play in!

Martha, being 2 hasn't quite caught on to the meaning of a swimming suit. She thinks that once it gets wet, she is supposed to take it off! We'll have to see how well that goes over next week at the beach!

Precious girls!

Party Time

Happy 5th Birthday Dibbit!

Elizabeth is celebrating her 5th birthday this weekend and since she will be at the beach, we already had her party. She celebrated with her friend, Madelyn who has a birthday this week too. They invited 4 friends to go for a "spa day!" and then we went to McDonald's "all dolled up!" They had a great time! She kept saying, "This is the best day of my life!"

Martha had to out on some "yip-tick" too! She's really pretty good at it!

Mother's Day

For Mother's Day, Jamie and the girls gave me a double jogging stroller. I guess when Baby Amy comes (soon!), Elizabeth will have to start jogging beside me! I am such a thankful mother to be blessed with such a wonderful family. I couldn't ask for anything more!

The Velveteen Rabbit recital

Martha 2 1/2 Elizabeth (5 June 1)

Elizabeth loved ballet this year. Her end of the year recital was The Velveteen Rabbit. I don't know if she loved ballet or getting to see her Moss cousins each week more! We had a great time and all of the girls (and George IV!) did a great job! We were also thankful some of the Carpenter crew could come see!

We love Aunt Lollie, Rho Rho, Gigi and Granny!

Eight of the soon-to-be eleven Moss grandchildren with Mamie and Bop Bop!

Daddy's little bunny!

The Jamie Carpenter Family

We have decided to join the world of bloggers! I don't know why I think today is a good time?! With baby girl #3 on the way, a house in the midst of a renovation and 2 busy kids to keep up with each day...But here we are...Hope I can update it more often than I send pictures to you all! I am not too good at that anymore! Maybe this way you can see what we Carpenter's are up to!
