Our Baby Faith

Take time for the little <*BIG*> things..

Yesterday, during the hustle and bustle of getting Isaiah’s room ready…  
Faith had one request…
“Daddy,… can you take my training wheels off?”
At first we were like.. “Faith, we have TOO much to do!  We don’t have time today,.. we are getting things ready.
We leave NEXT week for China!”
But, then… Daddy caved! And, I’m so thankful that he did!

A proud moment!

Our sweet girl took off on her bike without the training wheels yesterday!  We were so proud & so thankful that we took the time for the little things!

Chinese Cowgirl Party!

If you ask Faith what she wants to be when she grows up… she will usually tell you..
“I want to be a Cowgirl!”  Now, where that comes from .. I haven’t a clue.  But, I decided to build her party around a “cowgirl” theme.  Since her favorite thing to eat is Chinese noodles from our local Chinese restaurant….,  I asked if we could have her party there one day after school.  It was a PLAN!  Faith loved it & she invited 10 of her closest friends to come share in her celebration!
I can’t take any credit for the decorations & ideas below.. because my Mom, said.. she had it under control!  Praise the Lord for Moms!  I’m not the type of mother who has to have her hands in Every detail… so I was fine with her planning.. & if you knew my mother.. you would know why I was completely fine with her planning it!  She is the BOMB!  She just retired from 20+ years in banking but, party planning is something she has ALWAYS loved to do!  I told her.. she should go in the business.  She is VERY Talented!  The funny thing is… I just set up her “Pinterest” account for her, HA!  She is in Hog-Heaven!
For the decor she used old frying pans & silver pans to display the food on.  Each cowgirl received her own badge & bandanna.  Momma bought plastic bling rings as a holder for the bandanna’s.  IT was too cute!

All the girls had a “YEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAW” time at Faith’s party, and I’m pretty sure Faith enjoyed it as well!  This Chinese Cowgirl party was a Success!

The Birthday Girls!

It is hard to believe another year has come & gone! Seems like their birthday’s sneak up on me every year! The first of Oct. the girls turned “8” & “6”. This year, we had another quite family party for both girls. They couldn’t have been more happier. Well,… unless they had a sleep over. Geesh! They have been begging me for awhile now & we just haven’t said yes to that … yet. I’m sure it’s coming & we won’t be able to hold them off any longer. 😉
Thanks to my lil‘ sis for this Awesome picture! It’s almost perfect.. …. for some reason Broughton decided he would make a crazy face!

It was either this one to post … or this… one…

Yeah,… he’s really excited .. i know! LOL!

This is WHY I do NOT kill myself in trying to take family portraits!

I mean really… why.. should I put myself through unnecessary torture..???!

😉 lol!

Miss Priss Posing!

We REALLY “look” Ready don’t we?!

It was a Great year.. but, we’re all tired out now from all that running!

They had so much fun playing this year, even thought it’s ROUGH because it starts right at the beginning of school. Every year, I say.. NEVER again… but,.. here I am,.. making it through another soccer season!

Now..we’re on to softball! 😉 Yep… travel ball. But, nothing on a Big scale.. just practicing,.. & games here & there. THANK GOODNESS..
I don’t know if I can keep up!

Daddy Daughter Dance


My girls…….Love their Daddy! Last Friday night he took them to a Daddy daughter dance. They were so excited! They loved getting all dressed up to go dancing. After dancing the night away he took them to their favorite local Chinese Restaurant.
It was so sweet to see them come home, spinning, twirling, & singing! It made them feel so special & I’m so incredibly Grateful to have a Husband that cares enough about His little girls to make them feel like little Princess’.

I am so Blessed…..

My favorite things….

I absolutely LOVE the homemade ornaments that my children bring home each year!!! I look forward to diggin those out each year when we are decorating for Christmas. This year I decided to have a special tree for all of my “Special” ornaments. The kids took a hand in decorating it & had so much fun!

It’s beginning to look like I may need another tree soon! HAHA!

Today we went to Faith’s Pre-K class for fun, food & entertainment. We saw the cutest little “Cupid” that you ever did see…

See what I mean!! PURE.. Cuteness!!

We had so much fun & enjoyed watching Faith perform today. When we got home.. she pulled out a sack full of homemade ornaments! I was in heaven!!! She has the BEST teachers ever! Thank you so much Mrs. Jennifer & Mrs. Tonia!! I know you both worked hard to get everything together and completed! I’m so thankful & Love them!! You made my day!!
