Happy Halloween!!!!

Our little Trick-or-Treaters..... Hannah as the Witch, Hadley the Princess and little Miss Hope a Ladybug. They could not be any cuter! This was Hope's first "REAL" Halloween where she sort of figured out the name of the game. After a slow start ... pretty quickly she figured out each time she went to another house they gave her candy. YUMMY!! The girls had a great time. And the weather was perfect! No coats this year to cover up their cute little costumes. Hope everyone had as happy a Halloween as we did!

It's Chilly out....

Had to take a few pictures of Hope today in her new coat. Isn't it just too cute?? Finally we see the cold air coming. I'm not sure if I'm ready for it or not!

Mended Little Hearts- Spaghetti Dinner

We had our first Mended Little Hearts Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday evening. We had a great turn out. Lots of family and friends turned out to support MLH. I'm proud to be a part of this little group of people. The heart kids are such a blessing to us as well as their families. It has been great getting to know them all. It helps to know other families who have been through the same trials we have with Hope and actually understand and know what it feels like.


Hannah had her final game Saturday. As you can see they dressed up in their Halloween Costumes. It was their coaches idea. And didn't they look so cute. Hannah wanted to be a witch so I made her as cute a witch as possible.

The Tulip Tree.....MOVING!!

We are going for it!!! Mom and I just received the lease paperwork on our new retail space. 3292 square feet of space!!! We've been thinking about it for the last few months. We looked at the space several months ago and we weren't sure if we could afford such a big, nice, new place. After lots of looking, discussions and thinking things over we're just going to take the risk. It's time. We are busting out of the seams at our current location. We will sign the lease over the weekend and hopefully meet with the contractor this next week to talk about the interior build-in. We have a tentative open date of January 15th. It will give us time to get through our busy holiday season and also give us time to get the store ready to go. Wish us luck on our new adventure. We are so excited!!

*Come and visit our store if your ever in Norman OK- we are on NW 24th Street between Main and Robinson

*The new location will be just south of where we are now- Corner of NW 24th St/Hemphill

1 more month and Hope will be 2

Well only a month away and our precious baby Hope will be turning 2. Baby, she is not so much anymore....BIG GIRL is more like it. Wow! Hope turned 23 months Wednesday October 22nd. Where has all the time gone? I'm just starting to get her party planning going. Can't decide if I should have a big to-do or just a small family thing. There will be lots of black, white and pink and of course, tutus all around. Happy 23 months baby girl!!

3 Years of REMISSION!! Yeah!

Well, it has now been 3 years since I found out my cancer was in remission. THANK YOU GOD!! It feels like just yesterday Scott and I were sitting in the surgeon's office hearing that terrible dreaded word- CANCER. It hit like a ton of bricks. I immediately thought I was going to die. My sweet little babies(Hannah-3 & Hadley-1) were going to grow up with-out me. I would miss their first day of kindergarten. I wouldn't be around to help them with homework, to wipe their tears when they fell down or if someone made fun of them at school, give advice on friends, meet their first boyfriend, see them all dressed up for prom, help plan their wedding, and on and on......

And my sweet baby Hope, who was never supposed to be. I was told the chemo would make me infertile. Against all odds I got pregnant- ACCIDENTLY! She is my miracle girl in more ways than one. She is my hero. She is a fighter! Enduring her broken heart. I am so thankful that her heart has been repaired and I pray that it will hold out. I do not want her to suffer any more pain or any more surgeries.

Thank you God for allowing me to beat this thing. I hope to be around for a long long time! To watch the girls grow, to be there for all their firsts. They are my life, my precious angels- they are what I live for..... to make sure they grow up to be strong, happy and healthy young women!

Hope for a cure!! And in honor of breast cancer awareness month.....Save the tata's!

Field Trip To The Apple Orchard

Hadley's kindergarten class field trip to Livesay Orchards.

The Tulip Tree

These are the bows I make.... "Le Mie Belle Figlie" my little side business. It means: My Beautiful Daughters. (I also make the baby beanies and headbands)

Spent the weekend in Norman changing up the store again. We've been getting shipments of new clothes for the last few weeks. Got them all out on the floor. Everything turned out looking really cute. We are running out of room!! We looked at a couple retail spaces for lease today. We are in need of a bigger place. The store is doing really good. Just hoping this economy doesn't slow down. If any of you ever get to Norman you should stop in. I also put the store website up on the blog. BTW, those are all my bows in the pictures- I'm so busy I can hardly keep up. Can you believe the college girls are wearing bows again?? Works for me!! Thank you- OU sorority girls!!
