Princess Emery's 3rd Birthday Party

Well, for some reason I can't add text at the top of the pictures, so I'll just have to add it down here.  Today we partied it up for Princess Emery's 3rd birthday.  I still can't believe she is three.  The years are going to fast!  This was the first year that she really "got" the whole birthday thing.  She knew this was her day and was all about it.  It was awesome!

My grandma went above and beyond in the whole cake decorating department.  Emery and I searched for months for a princess cake that she liked and she never went crazy over anything.  Then I thought, why not just make a few princesses.  Well, my Nana made SEVEN of them.  Yes, SEVEN!  And they were all absolutely beautiful!  The only bad part was that when Emery realized we were cutting and eating her cakes, she was devastated to the point of tears.

We had so many wonderful friends and family celebrate with us and I am so thankful for each and every one of them.  So thankful that there are so many people who love my little princess.  We are some blessed folks!

****I am grateful for
1) 3 wonderful years
2) a great birthday party
3) so many smiles
4) wonderful family and friends
5) an awesome Nana!!

Princess Emery is THREE!!!

Today, my sweet, little princess is three, I can't believe it!!  I'll be honest, I don't even have the words to describe how much I love this little girl.  Never in a million years could I have known just how much she would bless our lives.  I am so very thankful that I was chosen to be her Mommy!  Every day is full of adventure and learning and I'm amazed at just how much she knows and does.  Everyone that meets her, from young to old, are quickly wrapped around her tiny fingers.  I won't even mention how tightly her Daddy and Bubba are wrapped! ;o)

Happy Birthday Sweet Princess, I love you!!

****I am grateful for
1) 3 wonderful, amazing years!
2) Happy Birthdays
3) birthday smiles
4) 3 year old cuddles
5) all the years to come!

We are busy little bees.

I can't believe that it's already October, time is flying by.  In fact, we're already at our sixth week of school.  Seems like yesterday we were savoring our last days of summer.

October always marks my favorite time of year.  It's starts cooling off outside, there are holidays for three months straight, decorations start going up, leaves change colors (well, the few that do).  It also means that my sweet baby girl is about to turn one year older.  In just 10 short days, she'll be three.  I can't believe that it's been three whole years since we welcomed her into her lives.  Chase is playing Fall ball, so between that and dance, we are on the go most days.  He is doing really well and has really started enjoying it.  I love watching him play, it's pretty much adorable (one day he'll totally roll his eyes at me for saying that).

For the first weekend in a while, we don't really have anything planned.  So, I'm hoping to get the Halloween decorations up, birthday party shopping done, and maybe just relax and hang out with the kids.  I have so many things to post about, but I'll be the first to say that most days I'm just beat by the time we get the kids in bed and want nothing more than to sleep.  So, those things will just have to wait until another day.

Hope everyone else is doing well!

****I am grateful for
1) October
2) cooler weather
3) we got some much needed rain last weekend
4) less than 75 days until Disney World
5) tomorrow is hump day!
