Sweet 16.....

I can't believe my baby girl is 16.
It seems like just yesterday, I missed
my period for only the 2nd time in my life.
(The other time being when I was pregnant with Haley)
It seems like yesterday, I was in deep
denial about being pregnant and had a good
 Friend telling me the whole time I was pregnant!
(Remember Tiffeney? I was on the pill, for crying out loud!)
It seems like yesterday, I was holding
that sweet 8lb 2oz baby girl for the first time.
It seems like yesterday, she started walking.
It seems like yesterday, she was
almost kicked out of daycare for biting.
It seems like yesterday, she was on the
sidelines cheering at pee-wee football games.
It seems like yesterday, she started kindergarten.

It seems like yesterday, she got braces on and then off.
It seems like yesterday, she got boobs.
It seems like yesterday, we
were wearing the same size shoe.

It seems like yesterday, she started High School.


My Baby Girl.

My Outgoing, Outspoken Girl.

My Funny, Without A Care in the World Girl.

My Beautiful Gift from God.

Sweet 16.

Happy Birthday, Kylee Brooke.

You are the BEST surprise EVER!

I am thankful God knew I needed you and
had greater plans for me than I had for myself.

He's smart like that!

I Love You MUCH!

It's a Really Big Deal.....

Got my Haley moved to Auburn.
She's already started classes and is settling in nicely.
I miss her like crazy!
I really miss our late night time.
She and I would usually stay up later than
everybody else so that was our time just to talk and be together.
I really miss that time.
Did I tell you I miss my girl?
I got my season tickets in the mail 
this week which always makes a girl happy!
6 days until kick-off!
Those of you who know me know I
love football, especially Auburn Tiger Football.
I mean, I REALLY love Auburn Football.
I love everything about it.
This year I have one more reason to love home games.
I get to see my girl!
I am so excited and can't wait for the first home
game which is September 15th, in case you were wondering.
She is coming home Labor Day
weekend so I get to see her then.
And yes, I am doing the Happy Dance!

While we are on the subject of Auburn,
we had a Tailgate Party at work Friday.
Aubie, our beloved Auburn Mascot and
Big Al, Alabama's Mascot were our Guests of Honor.

Where I come from, that's a really big deal.

I don't think there is another rivalry like Alabama/Auburn.
It was such a fun day for our Patients, Employees and Families.

Hayden came so he could see Aubie.

He LOVES him!

Nothing makes me smile like seeing him smile.

I love this boy.

How precious is this?

This time next week I'll be talking about football.

6 days until kick-off.

Have I said that?

I hope you all have a wonderful week, Blog Friends!

Love you MUCH!

Looking at the Bright Side.....

From the moment you have kids,
you start preparing them for life on their own.  
Now, that's probably not what you're
thinking about as you're trying to keep them from
sticking their fingers in the light sockets, or as you are
teaching them to look both ways before they cross the street. 
 All the life lessons, all the moments of encouragement,
all the words of wisdom and all the prayers lead directly to this moment.
Haley moves to Auburn tomorrow. 
 It really is bittersweet.
I know, without a doubt, God has amazing plans for her life.
I am so excited for her and the journey that lies ahead.
I can't wait to see where life takes her, and the people she will meet along the way. 
I am so sad she is leaving.
From the time she was born, she has never lived any other place. 
Like I said, bittersweet. 
A good friend told me, it could be worse,
she could be moving to Bama instead tomorrow.
I'm just looking at the bright side, Friends.
Love you MUCH!
War Eagle!
