10 Years and Counting!!

I can not believe that Alex and I have been married for 10 wonderful years as of today! Yep it's our 10 Year Annniversary. My honey has even reserved a room for us at the Tutwiler Hotel where we spent our first night as husband and wife. For those of you who have known us for a long time you know that it has been way longer than 10 years for us. It's really been more like 19 years since we met and began to date. We were merely babies (ok 14 and 15). I have known Alex for more than half of my life. As my cousin Brady said years ago, it's just like Alex has always been around. He is my husband, father of my girlies and most importantly my best friend. I think 10 years is quite an accomplishment in this crazy world we are living in but Alex and I know that we have the rest of our lives to make tons more memories together.
I love you baby! Thanks for being there for all the biggest moments in my life!
Me and You against the World!

For those of you who may have given up on my blog, Yes as I stated I probably would, I did get this ugly nasty virus. The girls bounced back fairly well other than the ugly cough but me, my mom and Alex have also all had it. I am still not feeling up to greatness. I haven't been this sick in quite a while. I promise to get back to posting pictures soon. Gob bless and by all means stay well everyone!

Well just a quick update. The Hicks clan is sick. Now everyone except myself has had or still has this nasty fever virus. I guess it's just a matter of time before it hits me like a thief in the night. Seriously, we for the most part are a healthy family. This little virus has hit this house hard! Say a prayer that we all get better soon or I may end up in the looney-bin for sure.

THE HAIR Incident!!!!!!

The evidence!!!!!!! - It's a bag of hair if you can't tell.

The scene of the crime!!!!!!!

Suspect #1 - (The New Do #1!!!)-Maggie

Suspect #2 -(The New Do #2)-Gracie

After several seconds of investigation (a couple of weeks ago) I have come to the conclusion that Maggie and Gracie Hicks did it in the Kitchen with the safety scissors!! Side note: they may be safe scissors but man do they still cut!
Yep, here is my account of what went down:
I was sitting in the living room (with full view of the kitchen mind you). The twins were sitting at the kitchen table doing their "art." I get up to walk to CP's room and pass the kitchen and I hear from Maggie, "Look Mommy!!" This was said with quite excitement so I go in the kitchen to see what masterpieces my angels have made. DEEEP GASP!!!! "OH NO!!! " I say. At my reaction Mags begins to cry. It is then that it really hits me that my babies have CUT THEIR OWN HAIR!!! At first I thought it was only Maggie but no Gracie was in on it to. They both committed hair felony. However, it was not as bad as it could have been. After all the tears and my heart began to beat again, I assessed the damage more closely. Maggie cut more hair but in all honestly did a pretty good job. Gracie cut less so her's was not bad at all. I was wanting to get their hair cut anyway so they just beat me to it. As you can see above it's not that much different just shorter with some wispy side bangs (I hate bangs by the way). Now, I know it's only a matter of time that a mother can hold out before her children cut their own hair but when CP did it I was not around and it was only one little piece of hair. This just took me by surprise!
The Verdict: We are all guilty. Me for having no idea how I didn't know this was going on. Them for trying to cut hair with out a license.
HAHAHAA!!! Have a great weekend everyone!

CP is sick

Get well

Well it's been a pretty crazy week so far. Clara Paige came down with some kind of virus yesterday. I know kids get sick. But my baby hasn't been sick in I don't know when. We have been so lucky in that department. We made our first trip to the doctor in probably over a year. Luckily Al and I just happened to go to Auburn with Dr. Todd. I am very excited to have another doctor that I feel comfortable with. We had the hook up in Tuscaloosa. We loved Dr. Laubenthal and Dr. Cunningham. I just hope and pray that the twins don't get sick too.
Get well my sweet baby girl, Clara Paige.

Marching in Protest!

Yesterday the girls were all at Nana's house. They wanted to take a bath and asked to do so several times but Nana kept putting them off. Well it seems that they grew tired of her procrastinating in giving them what they wanted. Nana says it got really quiet and she realized they were all held up in the bathroom. Just in time for Pappy to get home all 3 of my little protesters come MARCHING out of the bathroom Stark Naked!!! They marched through the living room, dining room and kitchen in single file shouting "WE WANT A BATH!!! WE WANT A BATH!!!" Over & Over!!!!
I hate I missed seeing it. Where do they come up with this stuff. I cried I laughed so hard when mom told me about it!!

Beach Trip!

Here are some pictures from our whirlwind beach trip a few weekends ago. It was a wonderful get-away. Thank you Mr. Lee for the use of your condo!
Here we are waiting for the Dolphin cruise boat.
What a crew! We did see lots of dolphin that day and the girls loved it. I had never done that before. We really enjoyed it.
And one of me and my girlies on the patio of the condo. Have a great week everyone.
