Happy Spring...

I have always (ever since my girls have been on this earth) wanted to take Bren and Avery to a big field of daffodils and take lots of cute pictures! My momma LOVED "buttercups" and every year around this time, all of the blooming buttercups remind me of her and how much I miss her!...Well this year, now that they are 7 and 4,I FINALLY got around to doing it! :) I took off one afternoon from work while they were on Spring Break and went to Memphis Botanic Gardens..the flowers were BEAUTIFUL and my children were halfway cooperative (they were much more excited about "my big backyard than taking pictures) Out of the HUNDREDS of pictures that I took...these were the only decent ones we got...But, I'll take it!

Happy 7th Birthday sweet girl!

March 16th, 7 years ago was one of the greatest days of my life...I got to meet one of the greatest gifts God has ever given me! I can't believe that the time has passed so fast! You're growing up into the young lady that God has created you to be...but it doesn't mean that I don't miss those first few "baby" years I had with you! You are such a sweet and funny girl...one who LOVES basketball, soccer, and softball, riding bikes, bugs, video games, board games...you love to learn, you are reading like crazy and spelling words that even I don't spell very good :0) Your sense of humor makes us all laugh and you have the cutest gap in your mouth where you have lost your top 2 baby teeth! I love you more than words will allow me to express and want you to know how proud I am of who you are and what you are becoming! Hope your this 7th year of your little life is one of the best years yet! We had to wake up with birthday pancakes, because that is what you asked for :)

and what is a birthday without a present...although you have already had your party and we couldn't leave out Avery...she needed a little prize :) Just what you wanted...a stealth rider (tiny remote control car!) explaining exactly how it works then we met our cousins at the park for a picnic lunch Avery and Grace Brenly and Grace All the kiddos Ava came to join in on the fun Unfortunately, the day didn't end without a few boo-boos...SEVEN to be exact...how appropriate that your 7th birthday started with 7 boo-boos

We ended up at YoLo's for a little birthday treat Ava was over having her picture taken...she just wanted to eat her yogurt in peace Enjoying some yogurt goodness AND ANOTHER PRESENT...MiMi had sent you a package... a $50 dollar bill to buy you a new Kinnect Game and of course, Avery got a little something too! Happy Birthday Bren! We love you!
