Ashlyns tree

I just love that the girls have trees in their rooms! Looking at them just makes me smile!
Miss Ashlyn's tree

Mallory's Barney tree, that she has redecorated 100+times!

Madi's tree that she also decorated herself!

Our family tree

Allie Grace does not have one for obvious reasons. This is also why our tree in the den has lights and ribbons and an angel on top. That's it. She is worse than a cat when it comes to getting in the tree! Happy Holidays everyone!

Doughnuts and a deal!

Some people go to lunch after church, but because Allie Grace and Bill stayed home from church, we went to Krispy Kreme and got a doughnut! Yum!
I found this Potato Saks outfit on EBAY, new for $30! Go and search, there are tons!

Happy Birthday Madi

Wow, what a busy, but Wonderful Holiday! We had family here from Greenville and Atlanta, and I loved it. My brother in law fried the turkey, and although I was born and raised in South Carolina, this was my first fried turkey. Pretty darn good! My sweet Madi turned 5 on the 27th, along with my nephew Braden who turned 13, and my Mom turned @% on the 29th! My mom left on her Birthday to head back to Greenville, so I did not get any pictures, but I hate she spent the day on I-95! Sorry Mom, but I was so glad to have you here!
The Birthday loot! Braden is having a huge party with a DJ when he gets back to Atlanta, so that's why he has no gifts to unwrap, and we gave him $, so that's already in his pocket:)

Turkey Day

Mallory had her Thanksgiving Feast at preschool today, and they made the cutest headbands I have ever seen! They had turkey legs on each side made from paper bags! This was adorable! Here are some of the sweet pictures!

Potato Saks

I had many of you ask me about Mallory's birthday outfit, and I have to say, this brand is one of my favorites! I have to admit, they are pricey, but I can get away with it, because I have 4 girls. That means, at least 3 of them will wear the outfit, so divided by 3, it is a great deal :) That is how I explain it to my husband anyway. I got it from Magic Windows in Charlotte, NC, but the brand is Potato Saks. To get a better deal, and better selection, check it out on EBAY. They have tons!! Beware, you will want one for every occasion!

No rules here!

Mallory's preschool teacher gave her a Birthday party at school today since she started 2 weeks after her actual B-day. I thought that was so sweet, and she was beyond excited!
Madi is officially off the waiting list, and now in Pre-K! We are all thrilled about that! :) Here she is on her first day!
The back of these pants are my favorite. Those pockets are just adorable. Sorry about the quality of my photos, I am searching for a new camera :)

I know my girls look like a bunch of spring chickens, but I have realized that when you live in Florida, all of the wardrobe rules go out the window!

Trick Or Treat

Here we have Miss Ashlyn as "The Butterfly Diva"
Complete with the Justice tote as her Trick or Treat bag! What happened to the cute little pumpkin head with her name on it from Lillian Vernon? Oh how they grow up so fast!
A very sticky Allie Grace, aka "The little Fairy"

Mallory as "Dorothy"

The little Fairy
(Allie Grace)

Here we have Madi as "Cinderella"

Bill and I walked into the kitchen, and this is what we found. Mallory was putting all of her candy in a line, so she could "count it"! It went through the entire house.

I hope you all had a great Halloween, and I can't wait to see all of the adorable pictures!

Is it Girl #5 or Boy #1 ???

It's A BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you believe it? I think I am still in shock!

I am so thankful to have my girls here with me. I know you have all heard about the little girl, Somer, who was walking home from school, and never made it. That is 15 mins from my house, and now there is a child killer on the loose. I can not imagine what that mother is going through right now. Today I will pray for that mother, and the siblings she left behind. As I sit here and type this, the trash is being collected outside, and just the sound of that truck makes me cringe. That monster dumped her body in the trash.
Gracious God, in the vulnerability of a child, we recognize our own fragility. In their tender innocence, we are reminded that life is meant to be lived with curious and joyful abandon. Help us, who are no longer children, to retain the freshness of childhood and to be the protectors and mentors of those whose lives are just beginning. May we see in their eyes the clear window of heaven. Guide us in the ways to keep all children safe and in your great love, O Lord, hold them in your peaceful embrace so they are not overcome by loneliness, fear, or danger. We ask this for the sake of your love. Amen.

1st day of preschool

It seems like most of my posts have been about Mallory lately, but she is the one that has had a very busy week! This was her very first day of preschool! Yes, it is 8:45 am and she is eating a turkey hot dog (minus the bun). She loves them, so whatever I can get in her for breakfast, I do it :)

Happy 3rd Birthday to my sweet Mallory

Bill took the girls to see Elmo for Mallory's Birthday, and Sissy (aka Ashlyn) opted out. They had a ball!

On stands now!

I don't know if you remember, but not long ago I helped my baby sister on a photo shoot, and we had a ball! Well, here are the results, and SHE MADE THE COVER!!! WHOOHOOO! Way too go Lauren, you look beautiful, as always!

It was so hot outside, and she still braved that big jacket! What a trooper!
I loved this shot!

WOW! Amazing, and she is a mommy of 2!

We tried to find a way to get those shoes in the car, but no luck :)
