Cub Scouts Haunted Woods

Saturday night Brice and Daddy camped in The Haunted Woods with other Cub Scouts and families. B&B and I decided not to go and enjoyed a lovely time at home. We slept in the living room as our own way of camping. I slept on the couch and B&B slept on an air mattress on the floor. We decorated some of my yummy red velvet birthday cupcakes that Josh and Kit brought me for my bday. We loaded them down with sprinkles and ate them as our camping snack. (Thank you J&K!) We watched Dora and Little Bill and all sorts of fun shows until Bailey Shay crashed around 11 and BinBin checked out around 11:45. They LOVED our 'camping trip'.

Brice came home very dirty in the same clothes he left in the day before so I am pretty sure he had a really good time. Marty enjoyed hanging out with the dads and doing things with Brice but he said he "fought the air mattress all night". He came home and took a nap. Thankfully, Brice came home and took a shower!

I Love Candles!

If you love yummy smelling candles you should visit K & Kompany Kandles.

"The candles are the nine Fruits of the Spirit, each is a creamy white and a different scent.
Love ~ Sweet Pea
Joy ~ Buttercream Crunch
Peace ~ Cinnamon Bun

Faithfulness ~ Pumpkin Pie Spice
Gentleness ~ Mulberry
I just placed an order for some "Kindness". :) Maybe I'll order some "Patience" next.

Born To Be Wild!

This week Kristen, Bailey and I went out to do a little shopping. I ran in one store and the girls decided to sit this one out. (Kristen, someday you will LOVE shopping in fabric stores!)

Kristen snapped this cute photo of Bailey while they were waiting. I love it! It is so very Bailey Shay!

Pumpkin Patch Fun!

Brinley's class took a little field trip to a "Pumpkin Patch" sponsored by a local church. Bailey was soooooooooooo excited when Brinley's teachers Miss Cindy and Miss Melissa asked her to go along too! It was a lot of fun and the children were so well behaved. Daddy even met us there! The girls were so excited to see him when we arrived even though they'd just seen him when we left home. When we arrived they met Glenda the Good Witch. She told them several stories and had them all giggling! Then we sang "Five Little Pumpkins" and "The Itsy Bitsy Spider". After that we all went outside to choose a pumpkin to take home. We found all sorts of pumpkins and the very best tiny pumpkins came home with all of us! The children enjoyed snack time while we were there and then it was time to say goodbye and head back to the school. Bailey can't wait until next year when she gets to make the trip again with her very own kindergarten class. All of Brinley's friends were so nice to her and she really felt like a big girl! Brinley's teachers told me that she is a very sweet girl and that she is a perfectionist when it comes to her work. I love my BinBin and ShayShay!

Time Goes By

This picture of Bailey was taken one year ago. I can't believe how much she has grown!

This picture of Brinley was taken two years ago. It's just amazing to me how much both of the girls have grown and changed. I wish I could just make time STOP sometimes so that we could enjoy more of these sweet days.

My Husband

I am so blessed to be the wife of this man. I never truly knew what it was like to be loved until I met him. He loves me unconditionally. He is my best friend. Sometimes I look at him and wonder how I got so lucky. He is handsome, smart, funny....and he loves God.

As Bailey would say he "makes my heart happy". :)

Sweet girl

I took this photo of BinBin after school recently. ShayShay was sound asleep in her carseat. BinBin and I were just talking and laughing and she looked so cute I just had to snap a picture.

Another Big Day!

Kristen's boyfriend Cameron is a senior at The Citadel. He participated in the Ring Ceremony over the weekend. Kristen and Cameron's parents were there to join in the festivities. Cameron's sister Rebeccca's boyfriend Ken is in Cameron's company so it was one big family party!

Friday night was The Ring Hop, Saturday families could visit the barracks to see where the cadets live. Saturday afternoon was the football game and a cocktail party followed Saturday evening.

Kristen was a tired girl yesterday when she came to visit but she was thrilled to have been a part of this very special weekend with Cameron and his family.
