Finally....A Real Birthday Party!

I have been so lazy in my posting.  I have lots of excuses, but none of them matter.  I will be so mad at myself if I let things get so far behind that I can't remember what has happened!  If I don't write things here, there is no hope...they will be gone forever!
I have lots of exciting and funny things to share in the next few days :)
My first post, however, has to be Miss Wesleigh's birthday party.  For whatever reason, she has never had a "friend" birthday party.  This year, she finally got this wish.  She has been excited for weeks!
Her party was at the gym that they took gymnastics last year.  Everyone had a great time.

This is Sara.  You might remember that Sara came home from India last summer.  I was so proud of her for being so brave!

Of course, the theme was "Frozen"...what else could it possibly be?

This is my favorite shot.  She was so excited for her friends to sing Happy Birthday to her!


Gracie was happy to model all of Wesleigh's presents.

Such a fun day!  All her brothers were there to help her celebrate...and we get to do it all over again in a couple of months for Gracie :)

Today is Your Birthday!!

Wesleigh has been counting down the days to her birthday for months!  She was so excited last night, I'm surprised she fell asleep.   She is finally 6!!

Richard is stuck in S. Carolina because of the snow, so we facetime'd him this morning.  We all went in their bedroom and woke Wesleigh up singing "Happy Birthday".  She was thrilled!

Icemageden 2014

Boy...the days just seem to fly by faster and faster.  I start each day with so many lofty goals and expectations and end each day, falling into bed...usually not accomplishing half of what I wanted to.  Such is the life of every mom I know.  And for those moms who do actually have it all together and don't share this same reality...I am not your friend anymore :)

Like most of the country, we have had some crazy weather down here in the south!  The kiddos have missed a total of 4 days due to icemageden 2014.  We were hoping to get some snow, but we had to settle for alot of ice.

The girls didn't seem to mind :)

Speaking of messes...I ended up with 5 extra teenagers for two nights.  I finally stopped feeding them and they eventually went home :)
