Cille's Friends

The spring and early summer is birthday season in Cille's class, and one of her classmates hosted his party at a splash park.  The kids had a great time playing in the water together, and one of the grandparents captured this group shot on her camera...
Aren't they just the cutest kids ever?  We thank the Lord that He has blessed Cille with such sweet friends and classmates!

More Crawfish

How yummy are crawfish?  Well, we love them so much we could just about eat them every day, and a couple of times this past season, that is just what we did.  The day after we boiled crawfish with John, we did it again at Mawmaw and Pawpaw's house...
The whole family turned out for crawfish and a pool party...



Sweet kisses...
My boy loves the water...



The men and Stella conferred on how best to prepare the little critters...









The kids enjoyed the pool, but eventually the favorite toy of kids everywhere (AKA a big pile of dirt)   lured them over with its charms...






Tuck decided to do a little taste test...
But before he could really analyze the dirt's bouquet, his grandma caught him...



This kid needs some Orbit gum in her life...


I would be remiss if I did not include a picture of Damon's latest project, the crawfish table.  He sketched out several designs for this and it actually turned out pretty cool.  Kudos, Daddy...

John George Gives Crawfish Two Thumbs Up

One of the many reasons that our friendship with the Guillory family is eternal is that John loves to cook, and let's face it, Pourciaus love to eat.  When John suggested boiling up some mudbugs, we couldn't get to his house fast enough...
John gives crawfish a BIG thumbs up...
And Damon gives Chef John two thumbs way up for spice and presentation...

Stella's Preschool Graduation

Stella had a wonderful year at Parkview Baptist Preschool in Ms. Dolly's class.  She learned so much and grew a little bit, too.  If you want to take a stroll down memory lane and see what Stella looked like on her first day of Pre-K, click here.  Graduation day came all too soon and Stella was so excited for her big program...
Unfortunately, Cille came down with a virus during the program.  Here she is, burning up with fever and sleeping on Mawmaw...
The graduate!



At the reception she got a little case of the sillies...
Some of Stella's sweet friends from her class...we are going to miss them so much!  Sadly, most of Stella's class will be going to kindergarten at other schools next year...
Poor Cille...
Twirling...
This family shot really captures how miserable poor Cille was...and how disinterested Watts was...
Awww...
Cille perked back up for a few minutes, but we headed straight to a drug store for Motrin after the reception...


We are so proud of all the hard work that Stella did this year.  We are excited for her as she embarks on the rest of her education.  We can't wait to see what big plans God has for our sweet baby girl!
