Emma Kate goes to Pre-K...Beaver Style

Well it's official, as of Aug. 19th 2009, Emma became a Glen Rose Beaver! Who knows if that's where she will spend the rest of her school days, but for now...she's a beaver. I know for some, this is like a knife to the heart....afterall, momma went to Magnet Cove, aka "the rival!" It's okay though, because daddy was a "beaver" and thinks it's pretty special that his baby girl is going to the same school, in the very same building, that he went to when he was a little boy! It's funny because after all these years, there's a couple teachers that are still there that remembered Clint and his brothers...BY NAME! CRAZY!

Anyway, Emma did great her first day and was so excited to go to her new school. As expected, she made friends instantly! We are now 2.5 weeks into school and she has already been named "Miss social" by her teachers...wonder who she gets that from? LOL So far, she's been a great "student" and has brought home smiley faces on her behavior chart every day...this makes mom and dad proud! I had to compliment the teachers on what a great job they are doing making learning fun....Emma has been asked several times now what she learned at school and her reply EVERY time is "We don't do that at school, we just eat, play, sing songs and stuff like that" LOL Silly girl! We hope she continues to have fun and enjoy school!

Grant's 2nd Birthday-Anchors Away!

It's so hard to believe my little miracle man is TWO...where has the time gone? This year we celebrated with an "Anchors Away" nautical themed party...he chose the theme of course! LOL We had it at our church in the kids area where they could play on the indoor slides...FUN! Although, they seemed to be more interested in playing with the beach balls purchased from the dollar store...go figure! The cupcakes were made by Sam's and I added the nautical cupcake pics...too cute and SOOOO yummy! Eventhough there were SEVERAL friends that were unable to come (you were missed!), we had a great time! Thanks to everyone for making Grant's 2nd birthday so special!

Fit for a Princess....

I know, I know....I haven't posted in WEEKS, but for a good reason! The photography business is picking up and I have been one busy girl...and I wouldn't have it any other way!

On to the good stuff...A few weeks ago Emma went to her first "all girls" party for her friend Halle. It was at Pinkabella in the mall and the girls just LOVED it. Halle chose a princess theme, so each girl got to dress up like their favorite princess. They all got the royal treatment with make-up, hair do's, painted nails and even had a princess parade through the mall for all to see...TOO CUTE! I offered to take pictures so mom could sit back and watch all the fun! Thanks for inviting us and allowing us to share your special day with you Halle!

Happy 1st Birthday Kate!!

It's definately summer and the kids' social calendar is filling up quickly! This past weekend, we attended our second party of the summer to celebrate Kate's 1st birthday! This watermelon themed party was absolutely PRECIOUS...I just don't think it get's much cuter! Kate wasn't really sure what was going on, but she got all kinds of attention and that's all that matters...right!?!? Thanks for letting us be part of your special day Kate...we love you little girl!

Happy 2nd Birthday Thomas!

A couple weekends ago, we helped Thomas celebrate his 2nd birthday! Meredith, Thomas' mom and my BFF, is so creative and put together an ADORABLE circus party!! She worked so hard and truly put her heart into every detail to ensure "T" felt extra special on his special day...
Thanks for letting us celebrate your 2nd birthday with you Thomas...We love you!

Gotta love Branson!

A couple weekends ago, the kids and I went with my mom on a mini-vacay to Branson. We love Branson and always have a wonderful time...this time was a little challenging since Grant is older and not real fond of riding in the stroller for long periods of time, but a girls gotta shop! I think the highlight of the trip for Emma was staying in a hotel! Ha! She still talks about the place we went to with two beds!LOL We took the kids to a fun play area with rides and they both enjoyed that. We saw 2 being Tony Roi who does a FABULOUS tribute to Elvis! We see him almost everytime b/c he is such a great performer! Before we knew it, the weekend was over and it was time to head back home. Thanks for hanging out with us're the best!

A long year of waiting...

is FINALLY over! Emma had her first T-ball game last night! She saw her cousin Hayley play softball last summer and that was IT...she wanted to play too! I told her that after she turned 4 she could play t-ball and since then she has been telling everyone "When I get bigger, i'm gonna play t-ball!" If you are friends or family, you have heard this repeatedly for a solid YEAR! LOL I must was the cutest thing I've ever seen and they all actually played quite well!! We have been practicing 2 days a week for a month now and most of them have the concept down! Of course, my family took up a nice portion of the "cheering section" and Emma loved having everyone there to support her! You would think she was playing on the US Olympics team the way they were all yelling and cheering her on! LOL
