Christmas Card 2009

This is our Christmas card this year, and I was so pleased with it!

Taking the pictures was complete chaos, but suprisingly there were several that were so funny and real life that they turned out cute and hard to choose from.

So if I didn't have your address this is our Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!

Weekend plans

Well I won't be doing this

(Ok so really I wouldn't be doing that, who am I kidding, last time I went skiing I got a black eye)
But instead doing this

And drinking one of these

I hate that we are missing out on our ski trip we have had planned for months, and also that our dear sweet friend Lindsey will be making the venture alone without us or her husband. She will be in my thoughts and prayers alot of the weekend and next week. It is a big deal to be going at it alone and I hate I am missing all the fun with her. But work does rule things around here and Cabe is overloaded right now. Which is such a very huge blessing!!! Not for one minute do we don't thank God for the blessings his business have had this year, we know that he is so very fortunate to have so much work, when others have none.

Their have been some big blessings work wise come Cabe's way just within the past couple of weeks, and we both think it is opening so many doors for us. Cabe has wanted to really expand his business and span out more with his commercial work, and it is like God is taking him all over now and building his name in the business. It is such a huge praise!!! We just can't say more, than thank you God and all the doors you have opened for our family. I want to give back so much, and with Christmas season that just adds to me really wanting to help out others. Not to mention that this movie was just awesome

Last weekend Cabe and I had a date night. We went and saw The Blind Side and ate at Loca Luna, one of our favorites! Both were excellent!

Oh yeah, I have to share an early Christmas present to me and hubby. I have begged for one, and Cabe didn't think it I needed one. (Truth is Mr. Style wanted one for himself was the reason he didn't want me to get it first) Well we broke down last week and order us both one in case we did get to go skiing. Got it in yesterday and I just adore it. It is every thing I hoped it would be!

Well Happy Friday everyone!!! I know that was a bunch of stuff all thrown into one post, maybe it I didn't post every 3 months!
I hope to post pictures of the kiddos birthdays this weekend, but not making any promises......Ha

Kensey's 6th Birthday!

So I am about a month behind on all my posts, but I am just now catching up with reality and sleep. Even though we are heading into the busy Christmas season, I am trying to just relax and enjoy my family.

Kennedy's 1st birthday is now over with and birthdays are behind me until next fall! Yay!! It makes me really sad to know that they are another year older and that their birthdays have past. But at the same time, I am so relieved to not be preparing for parties anymore. I can now walk into Hobby Lobby without feeling like I want to cry!

So this was Kensley's first birthday party where it was strictly friends and no family. She absolutely loved it!! I was really nervous about it because usually I do all the planning and take care of ever last detail for the party, and this time the party place just told us to show up. It turned out being really cute, and it was just what she wanted!

We did a "Popstar" themed party, since Kensley's fav right now is Miss Montana! We had her party at a new boutique in town that also does glitter spa parties. We choose the runway model package where all the girls got the get manicures, makeup, and dress and but on a fashion show. Can I just say that at 5 and 6 these little girls already know how to work it!! SCARY!! Every one of them knew just what they wanted their makeup and nails to look like and each couldn't wait to put on the big fancy dresses. I have a feeling Cabe and I aren't gonna be prepared for the teen years with our girls. Ha!
This is all the girls that were at Kensley's party, and the sweet lady in the middle is Kensley's Kindergarten teacher!! Is that not the sweetest thing ever that she would come on a Saturday to a students party. Such a blessing to us that she is her teacher!

Cutest cake ever!! Kensley loved it!! I can not believe my sister can make things like this, and it tasted amazing too!

After the party, we had a little birthday celebration out at our house and then went trick or treating. Kensley was a ladybug(but when I got her costume I realized it was really a lovebug), Klayton was Clifford the Big Red dog (I have to say that was the cutest big red dog I have ever seen!), Kennedy was a bunny rabbit, and Carson was a Transformer.

The kids had such a good time, especially Klay. He held his bag open the entire time, it was too funny!!

This is really so so sad that my first little baby is now SIX years old!! She is such a sweet, loving, smart, funny, girly girl! We couldn't be more proud of her and she couldn't have her daddy more wrapped around her bright hot pink nail polished fingers!
