Katherine's 4th Birthday!!!!

We were in Arkansas for Katherine's 4th birthday so we had a party at my Mom's. The theme was Transformers! She went back and forth between Princess & Transformers--Transformers won. She was so excited her cousins got to come to her birthday party. They even went to my Mom's neighbor's to see his donkeys! Thanks, Dr Justice! She was exhausted at the end of the day.

I can't believe my baby is 4 years old already! Four years ago today we brought her home from the hospital and it seems like just yesterday! She is growing into a very smart, beautiful, independent little girl and we are so proud of her!

Here is a link to a slide show~Enjoy!

Katherine's 4th Birthday!



We decided to head to Arkansas for Thanksgiving this year instead of Christmas. Much less stress for us! Anyhow, we had a great time. We left the boro at 7 pm on Wednesday (the 26th) and got to my Mom's in Malvern at 2 am! By the time we got unloaded and settled into bed it was 3 am. We spent Thanksgiving Day at my Mammaw & Pappaw's. This was the first holiday that all my my siblings were together in a long time. We took lots of pics so I'll quit boring you with words and let ya have a peek! I made slide shows because I took nearly 200 pics just on Turkey Day! ~LOVES~

I think you'll have to click to see them. I couldn't figure out how to get them to actually load in the of these days I'll have it all figured out!

Fun Weekend

We had a Mom's Group meet up on Friday and the girls had so much fun! They played dress up, beat up on each other and had a good time! Kaydence & Katherine dressed up as Elmo & Cookie Monster. After the play date we went to McDonald's for lunch with Jennifer and her kids. We left our house @ 9:45 and didn't get home until 3. The girls were all worn out. The little ones took naps and Katherine watched Wizard of Oz (her new fave).

Friday night we had to call the cops. We were driving behind an erratic driver. Then, as we were almost home, they threw a bottle of water out the window AT A CAR! So Cory called 911 and we gave them the license number, but that wasn't enough. We had to FOLLOW said car. As we followed them they kept turning off all the lights and driving in the dark. Turns out it was a bunch of teenagers (explains the stupidity). The driver dropped his friends off and headed back toward town where the trooper pulled him over. He admitted that they had thrown the bottle out the window. They couldn't really charge him with anything (unless the car they threw the bottle at were to call and report) but they were calling his parents.

My issue is this, what if the car they threw the bottle at had panicked and lost control of their car and hit us? What if while they were being ignorant they had lost control of their car and hurt someone? When will people learn that their stupidity doesn't only effect themselves? It could also negatively effect someone else as well. I hope my nephew, who turns 16 next month, is a little more responsible. Hey, a girl can dream, right?

I had a Holiday Sale with two other ladies who have at home businesses. We had Mary Kay, Tupperware, Creative Memories & Thirtyone bags there. It was pretty much a bust but at least I got out of the house and got to chat with adults for a while! If you need any of these services let me know and I'll get you the information.

We had church today but nothing exciting happened.

We have a busy week ahead. We have MOPS tomorrow and I have two MK meetings this week. We're heading to Arkansas on Wednesday night when Cory gets home. Again, not looking forward to the drive there and back but I'm ready to see my family!

I'll post pics later. Blogger doesn't seem to like my pictures right now!

My Budding Photographer

Katherine got a kids digital camera last year for her birthday and she can't seem to get it out of our faces! Here a a few of her most recent pictures, I think Daddy took one of them with her camera.

Bridget Update

Bridget is now 12 lbs 10 oz. She is now up about a 1.5 lbs from her 6 month appt and Dr Lowe took her off the high-calorie formula! She seems to have so much more energy now, which is crazy because she was pretty darn energetic before. Continue to keep her in your prayers that she keeps the weight on and continues to do well. LOVES!

Updates & Sick Babies

Bridget had her 6 month appt on Wednesday, October 22nd. She had lost 5 oz in two months so we were put on Preemie/High Calorie formula because the Dr thinks she wasn't getting enough through breastfeeding. We go back Monday, November 3rd and hopefully she will have gained weight. If not we will have to do other tests so we could all use your prayers on that front.

We could also use your prayers for all three girls at the moment! All of the girls have been vomiting since Sunday morning. Katherine argued that she wasn't sick because she didn't want to miss church. Cory stayed home from work today to help out and all four of my babies are now asleep in living room. If Bridget isn't better by morning I'll be taking her back to the Dr because she can't really afford to lose weight over this.

We had a great trip to Arkansas and are so glad to be home. Prayers over me as I try to build my MK business would be much appreciated!

Away We Go

I have been a Mary Kay Consultant for just over a year and I love it! This weekend is our annual retreat. My area's retreat is in Van, TX, so the girls and I are headed to Arkansas tomorrow morning where they will be staying with Granny and Aunt Brittney while Mommy gets some much needed time away! I am not, however, looking forward to the drive from Middle TN to Central AR (and back again) alone with the girls! Prayers for sanity and patience would be much appreciated.


Starting Out

I've decided to start a blog because my mom, in Arkansas, loves new pics of the girls but I don't always have time to send them. Now she can get on the blog and see new pics and I don't have to worry about whether I've missed someone when sending out pics. Also, its so much easier to keep up with one blog rather than myspace, facebook or other member type sites and tons of emails.

I'm new to blogging so bear with me as I get use to something new, I don't handle change very well!
