Gifts of the Heart

My big girl turned 12 on Saturday. Her BFF's got dropped off at about 2:30 that day. We started the day with about a 4-5 inch hair cut. Then we headed to Chuck E Cheese (I guess I can think of worse places a 12 year old could want to go for their birthday). Then we headed to Outback for dinner, and dessert at TCBY. She said she had the 'Best Birthday Ever'. I guess all of those over priced huge toddler birthday parties were a waste of money, considering that she doesn't even remember them (note to new Mom's).

I was so impressed and touched by her gifts from her BFF's Bonny and Sam. They went Thursday evening and painted the rock at her school.

This frame say "there aren't enough words to describe you, these are just a few...don't ever change who you are, I love you and your personality"

A few of the words are: Hip Hop, fashion, loving, cheerful, best's sooo cute. This was from Sam. She also made her a scrap book that's half full, so they can add to it over the years.

Bonny gave her this Best Friend frame with a pic of the three of them in it sporting their BFF shirts. So cute! She also gave her a Vera Bradley purse in her favorite color-purple. Cookie and brownie mix-she loves both.

The girls really made her birthday so special. I am so thankful that she has Bonny and Sam in her life.

The Frazzled Female

Anyone that knows me will tell you that I am perpetually frazzled. Ask Alex's teachers. I forgot his lunch yesterday. :( luckily I had a banana for myself, and his teacher shared with him as well. Ask my sister, who re-reminds everything about dance. I can write it down, but that doesn't mean I always remember it. I'm a little to 'chill' for a woman with a husband, 4 kids, & 2 jobs. I get it all done, but sometimes by the time I do, I'm beyond frazzled.

When my small group from church asked if we wanted to read a book together, and they suggested this one, I was thrilled!! I ordered it as soon as I got home. "Finding God's Peace in Your Daily Chaos" is written across the front of the book. If I 'had it like that' I would have ordered one for both of my sisters, and some friends too. I am just going to have to pass it along when I am finished with it. I encourage anyone who would like to read this book to read along with us. I will be more than happy to forward discussion notes and such.

This should be a great read!

7 weeks

Look at my baby. Isn't she lovely? She is growing so fast. I love her nose, and her lips, and her pretty eyes...I love everything about her. She is such a blessing. Her name fits her perfectly....Beautiful.

Bucket List

On my bucket list, one of my hopes is to learn a choreographed dance, preferably to a Michael Jackson song. Guess what? Opportunity has slapped me in the face! Amber's dance studio is having a "Mom's" dance. My sister has been going for a few weeks now. I didn't think much of it because I had just had Bella. Now that life has settled down a bit, I went to my first class tonight. Everyone knows much more than me obviously, but I held my own! The dance is great! It's not an 'old lady' dance at all. It's so hip and fun! I'm excited about it. We will be performing in the recital. That I'm not too sure about. I have never performed on a stage before in my life. I hope I don't chicken out. I can't chicken out. This should be an interesting experience!
