SWEET TEA

48 Hours

Our oldest first born child had a birthday last week and we had lots of fun celebrating with her this weekend in Tulsa.  Though out-going and feisty, she seems to manage to be out of camera range most of the time, but I.Got.Her. this weekend.  Isn't she the prettiest thing?  People have always loved her hair and when she was a child she worried that perhaps someday her hair would turn brown.  It didn't happen. YAY!  And, I must add that we brought our little red-head home from the hospital on St. Patrick's day.  What did she wear?  A pretty little mint green dress. The happiest St. Paddy's day we've ever had!

"We LOVE you, Amy!".

Amy and her youngest daughter, Grace.

Amy and Brent
(BTW, Brent is my FAVORITE SIL)


These are their lovely daughters.
Kaylee, Paige, and Grace.
They float my boat.
They wet my whistle.
They ring my bell.
OK.  I know you get the idea.

Such fun spending time with all these beautiful girls!

Kaylee just recently got her Driver's Permit.
She took me for a ride in her new (to her) car.
It was surreal being chauffeured by a
Granddaughter.


We also celebrated HK's birthday
with our extended family.

Little Mama was so nervous about it
but it turned out very nicely, doncha' think?
Ladybugs everywhere!

HK thought it was GREAT!

I also attended a Baby Shower for
Heather & Chase.(our nephew and his wife)  This will be their first child, a baby girl.  Can't wait til she arrives - don't think we're gonna have to wait very long now.

Good luck Heather!!
I'm guessing little "Linley" will make her grand entrance next Saturday, March 22.
Weighing in at 8 lbs 12 oz.  (We'll see if my guess is close.)

Practically every minute of the 48 hrs in Tulsa was spent doing something "family fun".  So thankful for the special times.  Even though I don't like to travel, gotta say it was absolutely worth every minute of the drive.  And, let the record show that HK traveled very well - though it was necessary to keep the "Bubble Guppies" video playing the entire time. I'm thinking that should qualify Mister and me for some type of award.  Can I get an Amen?

Amen!!! And I think for all that fun, you could endure an even longer drive. No sirree. You are not the typical family!! What a lovely brood you have and you sure know how to celebrate the milestones in life. I think to be a part of your family would be a blessing most people will never experience.

WOW you were busy. I can completely understand the way you feel about travel and family...I am in the same boat as you on that. HK had the cutest party...loved looking at all those decorations/food..great job. Hope all goes well for your niece when she delivers their precious bundle. And lastly...your Amy looks like you and I am glad her hair never turned brown...she has gorgeous red hair. Seems like you have a very close and loving family, Debbie.

What a lovely bunch of girls! Love the red hair! My grandson had a ladybug cake for his recent birthday. Had to make it a little more boyish for him. Your daughter did a wonderful job on the cake!

With our grandchildren we had to listen to Wonder Pet dvd's on all of our trips. Thank goodness they have outgrown them!
