11 years old today

At 1:02 pm Hayden turned 11!

We celebrated with lunch at George's.  His favorite meal is their chicken fried steak.  He didn't want a breakfast cupcake this year, as we typically do each year, so I put candles in his steak!

Hayden asked for a cross necklace for his birthday, so we visited James Avery and he picked out a necklace.  It looks so good on him.  He did a great job picking it out!

Happy Birthday handsome guy!

Happy 14th Birthday Layla

Layla celebrated her birthday at church camp on the 11th, and now we are celebrating on the beach.

When she got home from camp and we got a Starbucks frap and
 did all her laundry so we could pack for the beach.

Awww.  She was so tiny!  We were having our morning cupcake way back then.  
She didn't get to do that this year because she was at camp.

We made a fun girl day of dropping her off at camp.  

Happy Happy birthday and birthday week to you Sissy!!

getting spoiled on my special day

Here's to 43!  I'm so blessed my family and friends took me out for a fun birthday dinner.

We went do Diamond Backs and I had sushi and lobster bisque soup.  
I ended the night with a delicious bite of cheesecake and then shared the rest.

 We sat in the back in a little cubby that was once the elevator shaft.  It was a fun table for 8 people.  I felt very very spoiled on my special day!

Layla is at cheer camp, but she managed to send me a sweet Snapchat birthday greeting.  I loved it!

last day of school

 Today is the day they've been waiting for since last August. The last day of school!

 Layla didn't have any finals to take so she had a "school night sleepover" with one of her best buddies.  Here we are over here just making some fun memories!

Hayden finished 5th grade and will be starting his second year of intermediate school.


Layla finished 8th grade and will be in high school next year!  She'll be a fish!

I am so excited for what will be a wonderful summer when I finish work the second week of June.

Bourbon Derby

This handsome forever date of mine is also my favorite co-party planner.
We had the best time planning and hosting our annual Kentucky Derby party.

As you know, my favorite part of life is taking pictures, so we loved the backdrop. 

My favorite snack was the chex mix.  It was so unbelievably addictive and delicious. 

Gary and I love having guests to our home.  We are thankful for our friends old and new.

Even though the race result wasn't what we hoped we still had an amazing night celebrating and entertaining.
