The rodeo is coming !!

Here I am with my horse and wearing my cowgirl outfit!

Posing for the picture.


My school - Memphis Oral School for the Deaf- is having a rodeo! We each have to make our own stick horse(see the beginnings of mine above). We will have all sorts of fun games and activities related to cowgirls, horses, and rodeos! I even got some cowgirl boots for the occasion!

A New Addition.....

From my Mommy:

We have to tell the story of how this new addition came to live with the Bawcum Family of Somerville........

My cousin brought this precious little white kitten for my Nanny on Mother's Day. Well, if you know Nanny- you know no breathing animal would live inside her house! It was going to have to be an outside cat. Nola fell in LOVE with this kitten. Nola is definitely an animal person! Jonathan and I said No, we don't need another animal- two dogs are enough.

Well needless to say my lovely husband changed his mind and took his campaign for Nola getting the kitty to Facebook! The caption under the photo of Nola and the kitten said, "Nola wanted this kitten soooo bad, but her Mommy said No!" That is just wrong- of course, everyone ganged up on me and I caved in to the pressure.

So kitty came to live with us......

Doll Houses and Baby Dolls

Me in my new playroom at the new house!

Making Mother's Day gifts

I made stepping stones for each one of the special women in my life: Honey, Mimi, Nanny, Grandma, and Mom. These are my grandmothers and my great-grandmothers. I had such a blast getting paint everywhere! I even seemed to paint my hair and face in the process. The sun was so bright outside.....I think my parents need to get me some sunglasses!

Ready for a shave

I love it when my Daddy gets ready to shave- that means I get to put on some shaving cream. I have a fascination with the stuff. It smells good- like my Daddy.
