Big "D" with Big Daddy:)

So this morning the hubby & I are off to Dallas for a fun filled weekend ALONE:) Yahoo! That doesn't happen to often around here. I planned a Mystery Weekend for Sid & I don't think he has guessed what we are doing yet. (I'll share later once the suprise is out of the bag!) He does know that we are going to Six Flags when we arrive. Ha! I know those of you that know me are laughing their Bu*t off right now. Yes, I will be riding every roller coaster in the park. Joy! Seriously, please pray for me. I have tried to pump myself up to get on these roller coasters & have prayed all week that nothing would malfunction because my 9 children need me. LOL As long as I can hold down the funnel cake I plan to eat, I'll be good:) Check back for an update on our Mystery Weekend!! (some details will not be shared due to adult content)

WE. ARE. OFF..... Yeah Baby!!

Happy 4th Birthday Kenlie!!!

Number "7" the number of completion.(Ha!) The number we see over and over in the bible. The number of children I knew didn't quite know God had for us. 9 months of pregnancy was not as easy this time. 35 & pregnant in nursing school with 6 other children at home was not my idea, but God's:) Apparently He has a very funny sense of humor! And thanks to Zofran & some super nice clinical instructors I survived, and 2 weeks before graduation you were born in TEXAS!!! From the second you came into this world you have been loved by many. We can't imagine our family without your sweet little freckled face smile. AND... finally one that looks like Mama;) Your goofy & silly and you have the best belly laugh ever. And I will always hear that sweet little voice saying things like, "Lesterday I was being disisult and I wheely sowwy mommy" You are the cherry on top, the unexpected gift that God blessed us with & We Love You...All the way to the moon!

Happy 4th Birthday Peanut!!!

Happy 6th Birthday Emmy!!!

6 years ago today in Nashville,Tn you arrived in this world right on time. Tiny & Sweet & loved by 5 brothers and sisters & a very Happy Mommy & Daddy:) You are the child that made sure the girls would out number the boys;) You are the child that moved us into a LARGER vehicle & I can not imagine our family without you. You add spunk & laughter to every day. You make me smile when you say funny things & you make me so proud when you play "little mama" to your little brother & sister. One day you will be an amazing mommy & probably the CEO of a large company, or a teacher, or a boss to someone (not that your Bossy or anything:) We are so excited that you are going to be in the first grade this year. And I know you are excited about turning "6" so you can FINALLY get your ears pierced!! You make us proud and we LOVE you SO much!!!
Happy 6th Birthday Boo!

We Love You!!!!
