Merry Christmas!

Miss me? We had a wonderful Christmas!! Lots of family time and I loved it! My post is so late because we’ve been running around like chickens with our heads cut off because our new gym is opening Sunday! I am going to take lots of pics to put on here…just waiting on the rock climbing wall to be finished and some pictures to be hung! But, if you are local, feel free to stop in anytime :) I’ll give you the personal tour if I’m there, if not just tell whoever’s there that I sent you!(so you can get the star treatment :))

About a week before Christmas was Reece’s Christmas play at school. She was the cutest little angel ever but you got it she didn’t sing or say her speaking part. I didn’t expect anything less! :)

Sorry I look drunk. I wasn’t, we were at church plus I don’t drink.DSC_0229 DSC_0230These are pretty much in random I said, I’m pooped!DSC_0248

PS-Why didn’t anyone warn me about all the negative comments I would get about getting my FOUR-year-olds’ ears pierced? She is FOUR for crying out loud and I’m NOT going to hell for getting them pierced!!

Little Girl

It’s official. Because she got her ears pierced! But first let’s talk about Santa!

Every year we take the kids to see Jolly Ole’ Saint Nick. Every year we end up waiting to the last minute to go. So we decided that we would take Reece to eat for her birthday at the mall and then see Santa. Kill two birds with one stone.(and typing that makes me NEVER want to say that again!! Poor birds!) Anywho, we ended up being second in line to see Santa! Yay for that! While we were standing in line I asked Reece if she wanted to get her ears pierced and she said yes. Then she said no. Then 5 minutes before Santa was due to arrive she wanted to get them pierced right that very second. Y’all know I was NOT getting out of line at that point so I told her as soon as we saw Santa we would go. I never in a million gazillion years thought she would go through with it. So we saw Santa…

img264 Bhahahahahahahahahaaaaa! That picture REALLY cracks me up. Santa is not even looking, Reece had a mouth full of pizza, Griffin looks guilty(because he knows that Santa’s not real), Noah is thinking about freakin his freak and my sweet photogenic Peyton looks perfect!! That’s how we roll.

After Santa I asked Reece if she wanted to get her ears pierced now. She said yes. So we headed over to the store that does it, they had Hello Kitty ear rings…I still didn’t think she would go through with it..but she DID. And she didn’t cry at all…didn’t even flinch! I’m not even going to lie, I SO teared up! Hubby said that I was normal because it was a right of passage! No more baby :( She’s a big girl now :)

I know she’s mine, but she is one gorgeous little girl!!

Happy Birthday Reece!

Happy 4th Birthday Baby Girl!!! Four years ago right now I was sitting in a hospital bed ready to see your sweet face! While these four years have flown by, I still feel like Daddy and I have soaked up every single ounce of you being a baby! And now I feel like since you are 4, you just aren’t a baby anymore! boo. That’s ok though because you are still a lot of fun. I love your girly self :)

Reece’s party was Sunday. Hello Kitty themed no doubt! She LURVES some Hello Kitty. We had a huge turnout and everyone had a blast!

Welcome to the World, Adalynn Grace!

I’m so excited right now I can barely contain myself! My BFF, Jamie, was supposed to be induced today. She has been walking around dilated for several weeks(5cm since last Wednesday!). Her due date wasn’t until Christmas but they decided to induce her today because she very well may not have made it to the hospital in time if she went any further than she already was at home! She got to the hospital this morning and started contracting on her own…so this would have been the day she was born anyway! I went by to check on her around 9ish and the doctor came by and checked her…yep fully dilated! SHE’S FAST!

Jamie asked me to stay in the room while the baby was born. I was SUPER happy that she wanted me to stay! She works in labor and delivery at that hospital and will be birthing my next baby so she said I should be there when this one was born! :) It was amazing, of course. And perfect!

photo That’s 8 pounds and 4 ounces of sweet baby girl right there!!photo 1Best Friends. Sisters. The end. This was taken before the baby was born! She how tiny she is! You can’t even see a belly! Not sure where all that 8 pounds was hiding!!photo 2 Yes, I have the fever. I just called hubs and told him to stay away! haha!photo 3 First time to hold her!

I wish I looked that good after giving birth!
