A Flitterbugs Giveaway

Clothes by Flitterbugs

Many friends have asked where I get my kids' cute clothes. I must be honest and say that most are presents from family or hand me downs. Occasionally though, I make a purchase when I find something super cute and not too expensive.

One of the clothing lines I stumbled across is called Flitterbugs. Julie handmakes ALL the clothes. They aren't too expensive. AND all the proceeds go toward their adoption process! What could be better? Cute clothes and helping a family bring an unwanted child into a happy home!

Right now, through Friday noon, Flitterbugs is offering a giveaway of one item or initial tee. Click here to enter!!!

Exploration Class Sharing

The girls began taking a heater class at the Greenville Children's Theater this February. It was a ten week class where the kids learned all about theater through exploration, play and movement. The class was taught by Ms. Tracie whom the girls LOVED. They looked forward to going every week.

On the fifth class, each child was able to dress up in a costume and perform in front of an audience (the parents and siblings).

Emily chose to be a princess. Her name was Belle and her beast friend was the Beast! She twirled and danced in front of everyone!!!

Here comes Emily, I mean Belle!

Sara was the fairy Godmother who waved her wand and performed spells. In the words of Sara, the fairy Godmother says "Bippily, Boppily, Boo"

Just a fun night when Ben got to spend some time with just Sara and Emily since Henry was already asleep.




Snow Day!!!

We had a great snow on Feb. 13. The kids had a blast playing, making snow angels, building a snowman, eating snow cream and more. Enjoy the fun pics of our kids and house covered in snow!

The Neal Family Christmas

Here are all six Neal grandkids. Trying to get a great picture of all of them is hard to do, but they still are cute.
Ford- age 5, Witt- age 8, Ellie- age 7
Emily- age 4, Henry- age 2, Sara- age 4

For some reason, Henry was NOT happy about pictures and just wanted to go back inside.

We spent Christmas Eve in Columbia with my family. All the cousins enjoy playing together and had so much fun with presents! Before heading back to Greenville, we even went to my sister's church for Christmas Eve service where Uncle Andy sang and Cousin Witt played a shepard.
