Verse of the Day

The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.
Numbers 6:24-26

I have several things to tell you but maybe tomorrow I'll actually get it done. See you then.

Ok so it was almost a week ago but we had such a nice V-day that I had to share.

CP loves her chocolate!
I made cute little heart shaped eggs in toast. The girls loved it and it was easy.

M&G digging into their goody baskets!

We also made Valentine's cupcakes. My girlies are good at icing! Who knew?!

Alex had to work so me and Nana and the girls spent the day together. We made a quick stop by Elmwood where my dad is buried. I had not been there since my B'day. It was kinda hard but I'm glad we did and took the girls with us.

Mom (Nana) treated us to The Cheesecake Factory (Yummy) for our V-day lunch.

Here are Mags and CP during our lunch. CP is staring at the Lawsons b/c we ran into them while there. What a coincidence since they live in T-town.
Thanks Nana for the great day!!
I would have given you more detail but remember my keyboard is "challenged" at the moment!
Have a great weekend!

Quick Update

I haven't forgotten you. I have Valentines to update you on and other things. Just been neglecting the blog I suppose. Still having keyboard issues at home. It's hard to type with a wounded space-bar and a disabled "c" key.

To hold you over, here's a cute picture of my girlies Mrs. Shirley Vines took last Sunday. We were leaving Sarris' Restaurant after church. My girls love to go there and even ask during church if it is open. Mrs. Vines took this picture with her IPhone. I was very impressed with the quality. My pictures from my phone are terribly disappointing. Anyway, have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday Alex!

Today is my Alex's birthday. He will be 35 today. It doesn't seem like it but I've been with Alex over half my life now. We were mere kids when we met and began to date. He is so full of life and always full of energy. I found a couple of pictures that kind of capture Alex for me.

He is an excellent father to our girls and getting better every day. They are so lucky to have him to protect and lead them as they grow up. Watch out boys, one day he'll be ready for you as you ask our daughters out on dates!! They mean the world to him.

He is an avid and die hard Auburn fan in every sense of the word. His loyalty to our alma mater is heart felt and passionate. Qualities he exemplifies in every aspect of his life. He enjoys it most with us, his family, there along side him rooting on our Tigers. War Eagle baby!

And finally he is my very best life long friend and husband. I love him more everyday. I depend on his strength and companionship daily. I am lead by his spirit, devotion and love for Christ also. I am very lucky!
I love you baby! Hope you have a wonderful birthday today!

Hi everyone! I know it's almost been a week since my last post. Well I haven't gone MIA yet. Actually, our laptop has some keyboard issues right now so it's very aggravating to post anything. I'm typing from work right now so can't say too much. We have been busy lately. Last weekend CP and I went to Emma Lawson's 8th B'day sleepover. All I can say is whew. I was exhausted after that. A bunch of 8 year old girls and my 6 year old almost did me and Kim in but it was still fun. You'll have to go to her site for pics of that. I promise to get back up and running but probably just won't have as many posts as often until I can figure out this keyboard situation. It's no fun typing when the space bar doesn't work half the time. Anyway, enjoy your week and I'll talk at you all
ps- Alex's b'day is tomorrow! He'll be 35!! I just can't believe that. We've been together for pretty much 20 years now. Seems like we should still be teenagers going on dates. (Nah not really) Wish him Happy B'day if you see him!!

In the Spirit of Valentines

Just some quotes to fuel your thoughts for the day!

"Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility; for it thinks all things lawful for itself, and all things possible."
-Thomas Kempis (?)

"Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love and His kindness go on forever." -1 Chronicles 16:34

"Love is a noble act of self-giving, offering trust, faith, and loyalty. The more you love, the more you lose a part of yourself, yet you don't become less of who you are; you end up being complete with your loved ones." -Irene

Happy HSM Bday Party to CP!

Yes it was a Very, Very High School Musical birthday party for my sweet Clara Paige. There was HSM music, pictures with the cast, megaphones, nachos & cheese and much more! We had a great time and she absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks to everyone who took the time out of their Saturday to celebrate my baby's 6th birthday with us!

Here she is with her cake. It turned out better than I expected. Sam's is the way to go: Half a sheet cake for under $30 AND it was good.

Me and one of my best buddies in my life. I only hope that 20 years from now when she's 26 she'll still want her mom around like she does now!! Love you baby girl!

Here' s a candid shot of the adult crowd hanging out.

Present time was fun but kinda chaos as usual. Clara loved all of her gifts from her friends.

One of her favorite gifts was her "Jon & Kate + Eight" season 1&2 DVDs. In case you didn't know, my little angel LOVES her some Jon & Kate. She will ask us 5 or 6 times a week if it's going to come on that day. It's kinda cute how much she loves them and now she can watch them anytime she wishes!

And last but not least here she is with the next birthday boy of the day. Right after our party was Tyler Pruitt's superheros birthday party. Who knew a church gym could be transformed so quickly from a high school basketball gym into the bat cave.
