The Party

Today was the day of Miss K’s birthday party.  It was small as expected this year, but it was good.  The people that matter the most and love her were all here.  It also made for a slower relaxing day for all of us.  I didn’t have to constantly be on the go and keep food full.

Her best friend was here.  They played and laughed all day long!!  My 3 goddaughters were also here and they just adore Miss K.  My parents were here and with a smaller crowd, they spent more time with her.  The food was great as “mother” put together some awesome Mexican food for us.  There was tomales, flautas, spanish rice and beans.  Of course, there was a fruit tray and veggie tray too.  There was plenty to accompany the food too!!  We finished it all off with a huge marble cake.

She got pretty much everything that she asked for this year along with some monkey gifts.  That’s already in an envelope and ready to deposit.  She kept very little for herself.  Miss K knows she needs the funds for her future!!

I know this is short, but the party was small and we just all enjoyed the day.  Now, we’re on our way to the second half of her party day.  That means more to come later!!

Happy Birthday, Teenager!!

Today, the teenager advances a year into the teens and leaves us wondering where time has gone and why it’s gone so fast.  It’s been great though and I wouldn’t have missed it for anything in the world!!  Miss K is the most amazing kid and she makes me proud everyday that she’s mine.

We really pulled one over on her today!!  She knew that I had to get up early to go rent my mom’s space for the craft sale.  She told me to call her and wake her up on my way home and she’d get ready and we’d go to the mall.  Today is an official holiday from homeschool, so no worries there!!  Anyway, I had other plans as Lean Green took the day off without telling her, so he went with me.  On the way home, we picked up Chic-Fil-A for breakfast.  It happens to be her favorite!!  By my not calling, she was still sleeping when I got home.  I walked in and told her to wake up, that I’d gotten breakfast for a surprise.  I got the biggest bestest smile I’d ever seen!!  When her eyes where open, I told her I had another surprise and I went to the hall and brought Lean Green into her room.  Another giant smile!!  She stretched and yawned and got out of bed and we all ate breakfast together.

We then asked her what she wanted to do and she said she wanted to go to Wichita Falls.  I was really tired, so I said I’d take a nap and see how I felt for the drive.  When I got up, we knew that we weren’t going to make that drive and I said let’s go to the mall.  Ended up being a great trip!!  She got some new shoes, a skirt, and a new dress.  We ended our shopping trip with some frozen yogurt at the new shop.  It was delish and she was happy!!

Before the nighttime television shows started, we took her out to dinner.  It was her choice and she made a good one!!  We all enjoyed it and it was a cozy evening at home.  Later, my parents called and sang to her, which was just so darn sweet!!  She said it was the best birthday ever!!

Happy Birthday my sweet girl!!  We love you so much and we can’t wait to see what’s ahead for you.  You’re truly precious and we were blessed the day you entered our lives!!

Happy Birthday, Hubby!!

Ah yes, today is the birthday of my hubby.  He’s yet another year finer….and balder!!  HAHA  (I’m in trouble when he reads this now!!  🙁 )  Kiddo is out of town (we actually will spend the day on the road), but we celebrated ahead of time.  We took him out to eat and had a couple of very nice evenings together as a family before she left.  It always makes him a little sad when we’re not together to celebrate special days, especially since over the years, the Army kept us apart for so many of them.  But by taking a couple evenings together, he really got to enjoy himself and celebrate another year.

Lean Green is an awesome man and deserves the very best on his special day!!  I know it’ll be a different kind of day because we’ll be on the road and probably stop off at a couple stores, but I hope it’s a good one.  You always work so hard and make sure that we have all we need and this is the day to make sure that YOU have all you need.  I love you, Honey!!

Happy 4th of July!!

Happy 4th of July!!

Happy Birthday, America!!  Today is the day to let freedom ring, so I pay tribute to America and all the men and women who ensure our freedom.  Whether it be the men who signed signed our Declaration of Independance that historical those many years ago that gave us our freedoms and right or our men and women serving in the military to protect our freedoms and rights today….I salute you!!  What a great country we have and it’s our duty to ensure that it stays that way.  Never forget what our forefathers did for us by signing that single document.  Never forget what our military does for us today.

God bless America!!  Happy Independance Day!!
