Happy 13th Birthday, Makenna Nicole

Happy Birthday to my second oldest baby girl, Makenna Nicole.

You are growing into such a beautiful young lady, right before my very eyes!

Makenna Nicole, my teenager.


*Are super intuitive and observant ~
Almost nothing gets past you, and you analyze it all.
You are an extremely good judge of character, and hold firm to your beliefs ~
no matter what others think.

*Are crazy creative and talented.
You love crafting, and have the patience to try and try again, until you get it right.

*Are loving, caring, and kind.

*Love your down time.  
You need a lot of sleep, rest, and relaxation; and would often rather 
be at home than on the go.

And we love you to the moon!

Hope your birthday is extra special ♥

It's A Mermaid Party!

We partied it up for Miss Kam's 9th Birthday . . . Mermaid-Style!

She invited a couple of her friends over to craft, and it was the sweetest little gathering.

I found these mirrors at The Dollar Tree:

They were exactly what I was looking for to have the girls decorate. 
I bought jewel stickers on Amazon to glam them up, and they cost less than $2 each!

The candy station because . . . we like sugar.

Sierra suggested a cupcake decorating station, and the girls LOVED it!

These little paint palettes were perfect for keeping all of the sprinkles separated.


Little Miss was so happy she got to make two wishes 
{one on Saturday, and one with Grandparents on Sunday}.

It was such a special birthday weekend!

Happy 9th Birthday, Kameryn Faith

My sweet, Kameryn Faith, you are nine years old.
Nine years ago today, you *finally* arrived ~ two weeks after my being admitted
to the hospital, but six weeks before your due date.

You were born perfectly perfect,
and have been a bright ray of sunshine in our lives ever since.

*You love to sing
Everything that comes out of your mouth is turned into song.

*You are joyfully willing to help others.

*You love any reason to celebrate, and are the first to plan a party.

*You are super tall for your age, and have the thickest, most beautiful naturally wavy hair that is always getting complimented.

*You love adventure.

*You are quick to make friends.
No one is a stranger, and you are super friendly and outgoing.

*** And you continually remind others of the blessings of this life***
Every day you wake up proclaiming: "This is going to be the best day ever".
And whether we are headed off on a trip, or just going to have our tires rotated, 
it makes no difference to you.  You are equally thrilled with it all.

You have taught us so much, and it is our privilege to be able to live this life with you.

Love you to the moon!

Countdown to Christmas 2017 ~ Busy Bees

It's been a busy month 'round here,
But we've been having lots of fun!

This year our goal has been for each of the girls to get some one-on-one time with mama.
And what better way than Christmas shopping?

We've also kept busy wrapping,

And baking

And decorating.

And, of course, EATING all of the delicious treats!

What kinds of fun things have you been up to?

We're trying to stay well.
I think a cold has taken hold of Kenners, but the rest of us are fighting it hard!

Tay reminds me regularly just how many more days until Christmas, and it's not many y'all!
Stay sane!
