falling. lent. spring break.

let's see we have had attitudes, some unorganized chaos, arguing and the list could go on in the Dumas household as of late.
BUT I am proud to say things are now falling back into place with more family time and the
thankfulness for the simple things in life that have been overlooked for a while.
I am so thankful for my hard working, loving husband 
and 4 healthy, energetic, and beautiful kiddos. I just can't get enough of all of us together.
 lent is here. day 2 of the 40.
I can't say I have really ever successfully given up anything for lent, but
this is the year for me.  I have given up something that is a part of my everyday life.
chocolate....... and yes I did say everyday.  I love it.
the fam went to Ash Wednesday service last night, and the message I am sure
was written just for me and the hubs.  Goodness.
So the chocolate and I have sad our good-byes and are looking forward to meeting again.
 spring break flashback above.
did you know only 1 more wake-up until spring break???
officially 28 hours from now spring break will begin.
can't wait to celebrate with my sweet family.

this isn't the beach.

remember we do live in MiSsIsSiPpI.
 although, the snow works a little like sand.
 it works very good at burying your sister.
 nope, daddy wouldn't let me cover her face. :(
 yep, I am cool.  real cool. quite COLD!
 confession.  they got me too.
I am always out numbered.
my mom is now out of snow pictures to post. :)

where can you find an igloo?

no joke.  you could have seen this one in the Dumas front
yard for a few days.
and just think - I never knew they came with a cute secruity gaurd.

a BIG thanks goes to Cole for all his hard work directing the
kiddos on how to get this done.

snow S.M.I.L.E.S.!

somebody decided that she tried to like it, but the truth is she would rather just
look at it from the truck.   :)

remember these?

sponge rollers.
 what girls go through for a little beauty!

more of that cuteness.

Fairy Tale Ball 2011

Thursday, March 3, 2011


and here.

They had a blast at their Fairy Tale Ball, a Sudduth kindergarten tradition, to celebrate Valentine's Day! 

p.s.  Phelps insisted on the side pony tail, of course!
Yes, momma insisted on the bow tie for Watkins.

I love them.
