5 Years Later...

I feel like there are just not enough hours in the day to even get a blog post done!

Today my husband and I celebrate 5 years of marriage! I have been very excited about this day. We had special plans to do something fun today but as life would have it, BOTH boys woke up with fever this morning and had to stay home from school. It turned out to be a great day overall. We had fun together the 4 of us...and we got a TON of packing done!

Tonight is our last night in this house. It's bittersweet in some ways. Lots of wonderful memories here. Yet we are excited about what the future holds.

My husband is the sweetest man in the whole world. We agreed not to give gifts until a few weekends from now when we go away and actually celebrate our anniversary... but the man couldn't stand it. He gave me the most adorable pair of shoes, matching outfit, super cute purse and matching jewelry! I have to brag on my husband and tell y'all that he can pick out some super stylish things! He knows my style.

I love you Victor and could never imagine my life without you. I am so thankful for your protecting nature...and how you care for me and our family. You are without a doubt the sexiest man alive and I've heard it from many a girlfriend of mine how they'd LOVE to have a man like you. ;)

I had wanted to post some of our favorite wedding/dating pictures but the durn scanner wouldn't upload them.. that's a project of mine once we get settled.

Gotta run and get some rest before tomorrow... busy day.

Thank you to my sweet friends who have offered/helped us move. We couldn't have done it without you guys.. you are the sweetest friends ever and we are so thankful that you took time to help us. It shows us how much you care! :)

Calling on our God

I am at a total loss for words today. I ask you to please, please go to our Healer today for Sara Sullivan. I knew her from high school. She graduated a year ahead of me and was the sweetest girl.

I don't know all the details but you can read the blog to stay posted. She has been battling breast cancer I believe her entire pregnancy. She has been doing pretty well and gave birth to daughter Chloe about a week and a half ago. Both seemed to be doing okay. They arrived home with Chloe when Sara started having major headaches that then turned into seizures. She is currently in the hospital on life support. They are supposed to declare today if she is brain dead or not.

Please lift them up in your prayers. I cannot imagine what her husband is going through. A new baby is supposed to be such a sweet and precious time for a family...not he is praying for his wife to live.

Here are some photos of Sara and Chloe

Here is their blog.. you can follow updates here. Please pray.

Sunny Marie

I wanted to share with you guys the photos I took of my sweet friend Annie's baby girl, Sunny Marie. She is so precious weighing 5 POUNDS! She is the smallest baby I have ever held. So sweet I can't even tell you! Annie and Sunny are doing great and the whole family is settling into parenthood just fine! Annie is a total natural mother and I am so proud of how awesome she is doing!

I am praying blessings over them and cannot wait to watch Sunny grow!

My other friend Jessica had her baby two days before.. Ally Kate! She is so adorable as well and favors her older brother, Jase. I got some cute pictures of her today before all of us headed out the door for a girls lunch. I will post those pictures tomorrow.

Enjoy these pictures of Miss Sunny! Also, please excuse the lack of blog design. I'm in the process of a new design!

6 months and new arrivals!

How your baby's growing:
Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

Well, we've made it to six months! I am getting more and more excited to meet this little man! I am DYING to see him being held by his two bigger brothers! Bryce and Britton talk to my belly and kiss it and tell Baby Parker that they love him.

This has probably been the best pregnancy to date. I have been more upbeat and excited than the previous two. It's amazing to watch before your very eyes, your family grow and expand. What a blessing it is to have children. I can feel in my heart that we are most likely not done. :) Call us nuts but we want a big family. My husband has always said that from day one. We want a HUGE dinning room table one day filled with all our children, and their children... we hope and pray that God will allow us that and most importantly, that we can leave a godly legacy.

Parker's wardrobe is really expanding! I have so many cute things for him already. I will have to take a picture to show you tomorrow! Lots of goodies! I have had to buy several things because after two rowdy boys, stuff just falls apart! Can anyone else relate? We need a playpin, swing and a few other items that just broke after Britton used them too.

I am sleeping okay at night at this point and have gotten off the Tylenol PM. No major complaints. The belly is for sure expanding making it a little more difficult to bend over. LOL But I'm embracing every moment of it.

Now for some pictures! Here are the new fall things that arrived today! I think they are so stunning! Contact us if you are interested! Some of you have contacted us via the website to purchase and you are more than welcome to do so.. or you can just shoot us an email at

Now how cute is this with matching hat??

And how about this adorable onesie?? My friend Kristin makes these! Check out her website on my side bar... Summer Suzette Couture!!

New designs & been busy!

Hello all my blog friends! I'm sorry for being absent lately. I have been one busy bee these days!

For the last week and a half we've been busting it to pack up our entire house since we are moving. We haven't found the perfect house for us yet but we are still on the hunt! We are very grateful that my parents have offered to let us stay there while we are on our search. Sadly, this excites me to death because my parents are almost finished with a total renovation of their house! It's like a new house on the inside and it's BEAUTIFUL! I can't wait to cook in my mom's new kitchen! I so enjoy spending time with my family so it's going to be alot of fun staying there. Our house has bare walls and it looks so strange... most of the furniture is gone and so it looks very empty. How sad is it that I started to like this house more as soon as all of our junk and clutter was gone! Hah! Maybe being a "pack rat" isn't so cool. ;)

Today was a good day of rest for us which is very unusual in this house...we're always on the go. But for the past week my oldest has been battling an ugly virus. I'm serious dragging from lack of sleep from being up with him late several nights. I had to bathe him in the middle of the night on several occasions because his fever was very high. Yesterday and today he had no fever...and we were very excited because today was Miss Abby Grace's birthday party and believe me when I say that they were excited to go. However, as things will, murphy's law reared his ugly head and my youngest woke up with a little fever. :( So we had to miss the party. Needless to say we had one upset toddler. He really wanted to go. I did get to run by there on the way to get more medicine to drop of Abby Grace's gift. I think she liked it!

So I wanted to show you guys a few new things we have coming! First up, this was intended to be Abby Grace's birthday gift but again, having a sick kiddo threw off my schedule and I didn't get to complete it just yet. I still need to do some touch ups to it and add the rhinestones but I really wanted to give you guys a peek! We can do this in a wide array of sizes and styles. We can do any letter or number you'd like or ask us about custom designs. Now this set is NOT perfect; but I'm on the verge of perfecting it! I think it's totally cute...I know Abby would love it!

Contact us through our website if you are interested in this outfit. We have several more coming!

And here is one of a new line of headbands we are carrying! LOVE them!

My Precious Little Boy

Tomorrow my precious little boy will be TWO! I cannot believe where the time goes.

He is one of two of the sweetest boys in the whole wide world!

He's loving, hugs his Momma and still needs his Momma to put him to bed! I love how he drags his blankie around the house, I love the little lisp he has when he talks, I love the way he sings "Jesus Loves Me", I love all his hugs and kisses, I love how excited he gets when I go in and get him from a nap, I love how much he loves his BIG BROTHER and does everything just like him! Most of all, I love being his Mommy!

I am the most blessed gal on the planet. I love my boys more than life itself. Can't wait to see and hold the newest little man coming into my life soon!

Happy Birthday to my sweet son! I love you so much!
