Happy 4th Birthday Aleigha

Four years ago we were blessed with our sweet
baby girl! Emotions that I never knew existed
washed over me when I had you and loving you
is the easiest thing I've ever done!

You are still my sweet baby girl but you are also
quite sassy & bossy, but I wouldn't have you any
other way. You bring me & your Daddy so much

I love watching you grow & become your own
little person. You know what you want & you
fight for it all the way! I can't wait to see what this
next year brings.

I love you to the moon & back, kid! Today is your day!

My sick girl

Yesterday when we picked Aleigha up
from daycare they said she had coughed
non-stop since naptime :( We got her home
and she coughed so much she threw up
a few times. I was tempted to go to the ER
but we've done that once or twice & all
they do is tell us to follow up with her
doctor the next day so I waited & called this

I'm so glad I did! My sweet girl has
bronchitis. So glad we caught it before
it had the chance to get worse. We CANT
have the birthday girl sick at her party! She
doesn't act to sick but has the steady cough. 
Say a little prayer that she gets well.

(being a busy body at the doc's office)

I hope everyone is having a great week.
It's almost Friday, Yay!!!! We were
scheduled to take our HESI Exit exam
tomorrow but they rescheduled to next
Friday & I'm relieved. One more week
to study.

Bella's Birthday Party

Sunday we went to Aleigha's cousins
birthday party. It was a tea party at a local
mansion and was SO.MUCH.FUN!

When we first got there all the kids went
upstairs to get dressed up & have their
make-up done!

And then tney put on a little fashion show :)
Aleigha & the birthday girl!

Miss Priss loved this party so much!
The boys even dressed up and were

Then it was time for cake & TEA of course!

I absolutely loved the cute is it?!?

Bella boo blowing out her candles!

Then all the kids went on a treasure hunt
throughout the house to find clues.

And the clues ended up leading them to
their party favors! There was also some
hula hooping & dance freeze going on
during the party. I think every.single.child
had a great time.

Friday night we headed to The Boardwalk
so Mamaw could take Eli & Aleigha
to see The Lorax. You should know
that Miss Priss came out of the theater and
said "Mommy that movie was borrrrriinnnggg"!
Ha! She had more fun drinking coke &
eating a ton of popcorn. :)

While they were watching the movie I walked
around & shopped with my bro, sis-in-law & Tripp!

Such a relaxing night that I enjoyed way to much
because Saturday & most of Sunday looked like

Sunday I took a small break from studying to take
Aleigha to her cousin, Bella's, birthday party! I'll
share the pictures tomorrow but it was one of the cutest
birthday parties ever & we both had so much fun!

Board Games & Bunco

I started my last rotation of clinicals this past week
and I'm scheduled for nights again :( I dont mind
them so much and it's only 2 nights a week
but it cuts into the princesses time and it's hard
for her to adjust. I just happened to get out early
this week both nights and my teacher said to go
study but I couldn't pass up the afternoon with
my sugar so I went home & we played!!! Board
games are her FAVORITE, and she actually
beats me & her Daddy!

Sleeping like an angel. She sleeps so good once she
is out but GOOD GRIEF she is so hard to
get to sleep. She fights it like nobody else! I get
so irritated sometimes at the fight we put up
to get her to sleep but once I see her laying
there so peacefully I dont even think about
the struggle!

The second night I got out early just happened to
be BUNCO night, yay!!!! My Mom plays for me
when I have school but since I got out early she
kept Aleigha & I went ahead and played! I'm so
glad I did. Bunco is fastly becoming my favorite
night of the month. I look forward to seeeing
all the ladies & we have so much fun!

Kelly & Lindsey got Bunco's & looked
super cute in the St. Patty's day hat!

I got 2nd most wins & won this super cute
watering can! I'm in LOVE!

And Aleigha stayed at Mamaw's and played an
Angry Bird's board game with Eli! From the looks
of this pic my sis-in-law took she was being a
little mischievious ;)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy Friday

So glad the weekend is here even though I have lots of studying to do! Miss Priss has a birthday tea party to attend Sunday for her cousin at a local mansion downtown so were excited about that. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Eli's 7th Birthday

Eli's 7th birthday was this past weekend and
we had a blast. I haven't skated in probably 15 years
and it was obvious but we all had such a
good time including the birthday boy!

Aleigha skating with papaw

Tripp just soaked up the attention he was getting
from everyone.

Lil Ray & Aleigha

Poor baby had no idea that everytime one of us
fell it was to keep her from falling :)

Blowing out his candles...

I love the way their little arms go in every different
direction to keep balance!

Poor Tyler probably fell more than anyone but he was
such a trooper & never gave up.

The 3 amigos! We've decided that we'll start taking the
kids skating more often. Growing up we went
all the time & I think it will be fun to watch our
kids do the same!

Spring is Here

And we are taking full advantage of the nice afternoons.

Spring time makes us happy girls!

It's the little things

She got bored being sick & cooped up inside for
days so I had to find ways to entertain her. I love
how hard she was concentrating!

She thought it would be fun to paint my toenails. Ha!
She did the first one and then said she was to scared
to paint the rest because they were to little. Silly girl!

Be My Valentine

Oreo cakesters with sprinkles for her
class party!

We made heart shaped crayons to go with her
Valentine cards & she thought it was the
neated thing.

I think they turned out so cute :)

She spent Valentine's day sick with the flu :( We couldn't get
her fever down for nothing but she felt better after some
meds & rest!

And got kind of carried away with the sprinles

We made her teacher a cute little Valentine card with her
hand prints!

She was trying to feel good but just wasn't feeling it.
She loved her new rain boots & apron though!
