Birthday Party!!

On Saturday we had a birthday party for Francie at Spots & Dots (it's a little toy store in Brookwood Village)! It was a baby doll party! Five of Francie's closest friends came and the girls each "adopted" a Middleton baby doll! It was so cute! The girls promised to take good care of their babies- take them places, sing the lullabies, keep them dressed, change their diapers. They were all very serious about the adoption. Then, they gave their babies their first check-up! They had little doctor coats and stethescopes! After the "adoption" and "check-up" we had cupcakes in the food court! This was one of my favorite parties- it was so sweet and girly!!

The ladies doing the party were great! We didn't have to do anything! It was nice! *Easy as pie!! I would highly recommmend them to anyone! We may even do another party there next year! :)
Thank you friends and family for making this such a special day! You are all so great! We are blessed to have you all!!

Our Little Pumpkin Is Turning Three!

"The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save;he will rejoice over you with gladness;he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing." Zephaniah 3:17 (Francie's verse)

Yesterday we celebrated Francie's third birthday! Of course we went to dinner at our favorite Pablo's and had pink cupcakes for dessert!! I can't believe my baby girl is three years old!! She has grown up so much faster than Will it seems!! Not long after Will turned three I found out I was pregnant with Francie! She was such a cute and cuddly little girl. She has always been sweet and gentle. I remember when she was born I would wrap her up in pink and hold her forever! I don't think I put her down for at least two months! It is so awesome to have a girl! The ribbons and bows and shiny ruby slippers, dresses, tiaras, dolls, purses, pink, flowers, tea parties and ruffles! Francie is such a girly girl- even a little diva at times. She is my wish come true! She is such a delight! I love her so much!! She really makes this world enchanting!
Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!

I'm back!! I know I have been missed! It has been forever since I have blogged! I have now started my new job at Shades Mountain and things are finally starting to smooth out! The least bit of change in my world and I am completely gone! It's like my body, mind,and emotions forget how to function! I think I am doing better with things now!! I love my new job and my new friends. And the kids have adjusted well!! Praise God!! I can't believe Will is in first grade! He has grown up so fast! He loves school and he is very smart! I'm glad to have both of my children at my school with me again!
FYI- Will has had a couple of firsts- 1. He has finally lost a tooth!!
2. He got to go to his first Alabama football game!! He was so excited!! I'm so glad they won the game!

We had my Dad's 60th birthday at Oak Mountain and it was so fun!!
