Fall Photo Shoots


Disney On Ice

Mammy recently took us to see Disney On Ice in Birmingham. I was anxious to see how Caroline would do since we have never taken her to any kind of show or movie before and she is not the best at sitting still for very long. Well, she LOVED it!!! Caroline, Virginia, and Mary Bibb were all mesmerized by the characters and songs. I kept getting teared up watching their little face. Mammy did get the stomach bug about half way through, but, other than that, it was a day to be remembered...
Running in, sooooo excited!!

Granny quickly dropped about fifty bucks on two small stuffed Mickeys and a Belle necklace, very pricy but we have slept with Mickey every night since...At the show.....

PaRtY pArTy PaRtY

We celebrated Caroline's second birthday with a Dora-themed party! We had a moon bounce (which Dan coincidently won in a golf tourney), riding toys, balls, a pinata, and lots of food and cake. We had a great turnout and loved getting to celebrate with all of our friends and family.The "real" Dora even came. All of the kids seemed mesmerized for just a second but most came around and gave her a hug.
(I loved that Mary Bibb later commented to Ginny that she cant see Dora's braces when she watches her on TV!)




The Dora pinata before.....

And after.......
Caroline was so excited when it was time for her friends to sing Happy Birthday...she had been practicing singing it to herself and blowing out the candles for WEEKS!
We saved the presents for when we got home and Caroline got SOOOOOO MANY nice things. Thanks so much everybody!

Happy Birthday Caroline!!!

Caroline,
Happy Birthday sweetheart. We celebrated your second birthday this week. These last two years with you have been the happiest of my life. I love you so much. You are so cute and sweet and have so much personality. You are growing up so fast....talking, running, riding a tricycle and much more. You like to be the center of attention and are such a little ham. We had to have you a Dora party because you are obsessed with her and with Barney. I can hardly remember what my life was like without you are I thank God everyday that he lets me be your Mommy.
The previous pictures mark your birth, your first birthday, and your second. The two below are from Cracker Barrel on your first and second.
