♥ Avery turns 3 ♥

        On October 20,2008 God blessed me & Josh with our 2nd beautiful baby girl. From the the moment I find out I was having Avery I was in love with her but to hold her for the first time was the best feeling ever. I cannot believe she is now 3 years old. I wish I could stop time and let her be my baby forever but I am enjoying watching her grow everyday into an even more beautiful little girl. My life is sweeter with her in it and couldnt imagine my life without her. I am so blessed to not have 1 but 2 beautiful little girls to go through life with. God is so good all the time.

     Avery this year decided on her theme for her Birthday party to be Snow White!!! I was very happy she picked this theme because I had many ideas of what to do for the party! Avery dressed up in her Snow White dress and shoes and just looked so stinkin cute. My mom made Avery's cake as she does for each of the girls birthdays and she did a great job!!!! Avery had alot of her friends and family join her on Saturday to help her celebrate her 3rd birthday! After pizza time we made caramel candy apples which turned out to be a big hit!! The kids LOVED making their own!!!! All in all her party was very nice and I am so glad my baby enjoyed her magical day.

Girl Trip With My Mom ♥

   What a fun weekend I had! Me and my mom have been planning this weekend for awhile now. Usually we take our annual girl trip in November but this year it came a month early. We left early Friday morning and drove down to North Carolina where we stopped for some much needed shopping :-) Love shopping with my mom! Of course being the mommy I am I bought way too much stuff for my lil girls for this fall/winter! Lets just say they def made out on my shopping trip! After our shopping adventure we drove to another city in North Carolina where we attended a Ladies Retreat. This is my 11th year attending with my mom and we have great memories from years past going to this retreat. I love my  little girls so much but I was nice to just have a relaxing weekend with no responsibilities. Nice to get a full night sleep with no interruptions and nice to sleep in as well :-)  I love road trips with my mom because I cant even tell you how many Cracker Barrel's we stopped at to look around and of course get a yummy bite to eat. All in all it was a wonderful, much needed, spiritually uplifting weekend. Already looking forward to next year's girl trip with my mom.

It wont be like this for long....

♥ Avery Elizabeth ♥
♥ Hallie Madison ♥

        It's hard to believe that my baby will be 3 years old on just a few short weeks. It makes me start to wonder where has the time gone? I found myself in the car just the other day listening to Darius Rucker's song "It Wont Be Like This For Long" and just balled my eyes out. I've always loved this song and can remember listening to a little after Avery was born. I tell my girls all the time I don't want them to grow up, I want them to be my little babies forever! Hallie being the smart little 4 year old she is told me the other day, " No mommy, I want to be big!!" It's like yesterday I was bringing them home from the hospital, laying them in their crib for the first time and just watching those tiny little ladies sleep so peacefully. I have enjoyed watching them grow up to this point in their lives and cannot wait to see what beautiful young ladies they will become in the future. Even though they are getting big and becoming more independent they will both always be my babies
