The "real" birthday

Shew, I hate to say that I am almost glad to be done with celebrating C.B.'s 4th birthday! It has started to take a toll on me and the rest of my family as well. I guess that is what we get for going a little bit overboard. ha!

I am working 3rd this week and still without a sitter so I've decided to sleep while Charli is asleep and then go back to bed once my Mom gets home from work. My Dad was home today and wanted to spend some "Pa & Charli" time together so it worked out almost perfect. When they got home they were both so excited about playing at the park, going to the lake, putting their feet in the cold water, getting a happy meal and she got a DR PEPPER! She was so thrilled over this! If you were to ask why, her answer would be "because it makes me wild!"

We headed to big ole' Bowling Green for the afternoon to pick up a birthday cake and to let her pick out a toy at Toys R Us. She ended up picking out a baby and a high chair to put him in so that spent her birthday money that was given at the party. By the way... when we got baby boy out of the box, I noticed that he has a ..uhm, willy wonka. WHAT?! That is craziness. I thought about snatching him away once she went to sleep because it is creeping me the heck out!
bahaha.Anyways, we ended up at the mall to ride the carousel (which I hate a long with Chuck E. Cheese - a.k.a the devil, but it's her day right?!) she princess waved the entire time with a huge smile on her face. I loved walking through the mall hand in hand with her. She was so excited about it being her birthday. We stopped for cookies, which turned my fingers and tongue blue and also gave her a blue mustache. So funny. She hated them after I told her how dirty they were making her. So off we went again...We then headed back to the ville' to have Mexican which is her favorite. We ended up having 13 people to come eat with us, and she loved being able to show off in front of everyone rather than eating. Silly girl.Our family decided to have cake and open presents on our Maw's back porch since the weather in Kentucky has been so beautiful lately. Although, it was pretty warm today for the Spring season, I believe the high was 87. So our cake icing started to melt by the time that we got to it! Opps!Now it's time to figure out where all of the new toys and clothes are going to go!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
