Hope Floats

My super talented friend Wrenda sent me a message that her neighbor had baled hay and did I want to do some pics of Emerson. Not just yeah...but hell yeah. I love them....they turned out great....they always do when Wrenda is involved.

I told my friend Jenna about what I put her in...the little, flowy cornflower blue floral dress and cowboy boots and she said, "oh, that reminds me of Hope Floats!!". I love that movie (it may have something to do with Harry Connick, Jr.)!!! He could totally read me the phone book and I would listen all day. If you haven't seen't the nearest video store...or netflix..or whatever!! Just thought I'd put in one of my fave lines from the movie!!

Bernice Pruitt:My dad says that childhood is the happiest time of my life. But, I think he's wrong. I think my mom's right. She says that....
Birdie Pruitt:Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And, it will too....

That's one of the smartest things I've ever heard.

Bernice Pruitt:
Is this where you were "cream of corn"?
Birdie Pruitt:
"Queen of Corn", honey. Three years runnin'. A feat unsurpassed in the history of Smithville.

LOOKS like the "Queen of Corn" has some Competition!!! Emerson is ADORABLE!!!!
