These are my best friends from my home town growing up. We have all been friends FOREVER it seems like. Brandi, Julie and I all have known each other since kindergarten and Kristin moved to town in, I think, 4th grade. We all got together for dinner Saturday night. I had so much fun catching up. It's great that after all these years we still stay in touch and try and see each other every once in a while. Remember when?? I just had to put these pictures up. WOW!! Look at those bangs....haha! Believe it or not, these were all the pictures I could find of all 4 of us together. Remember prom? And I think another one of those was from a sleep over at my house?? I just wanted you girls to know how much you all mean to me. I love you all dearly. You have alway been there for me. Even now when we see each other its like we were never apart. Its so easy to just pick up where we left off. You girls have all turned into great women and moms. You all mean the world to me! Cheers- to always being close and always being there for each other. I love you all!!

What I am thankful for....

With Thanksgiving tomorrow I have been thinking of all I am thankful for. Hardly ever do I take the time to appreciate what blessings I have been lucky enough to recieve in my life. I have had many ups and downs, even so there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. For that I am so thankful. It is what continues to give me hope and strength to get through the tough times and enjoy all of the wonderful. So today I thought I would make a list of the very most special ones I could think of.

-My Husband, Scott. I am so thankful to have found such a wonderful husband and father. The girls and I are so blessed to call him "OURS". He works hard to make sure we are well taken care of. I love you very much Honey!

-My daughters, Hannah, Hadley & Hope. You girls are the light of my life. You are my reasons to get up in the mornings. I can't wait to see what you all come up with next. You keep my heart happy always. I am so proud of all of you. I am so happy God intrusted you to me and I hope I can always be the mommy you need me to be. XOXOXO!

-My Parents. I am so grateful that I have you as my parents. What a wonderful example you have always set for me. I have never wanted for anything and have always felt safe and protected. Thank you for always loving me no matter what. I Love you both!

-My Brothers, Zachary and Patrick. You guys are awesome. I love you both very much. I am proud to be you sister. You have both married great girls and a made beautiful families.

-My friends, you all know who you are. Thank you for always being there for me. I am so lucky to have so many friends. Some of you I have had forever and some just the last little while. You all hold a special place in my heart. Love you all!

-My health. I am so thankful to have my health. I have had some struggles but I have made it through. I hope my cancer never comes back. I have learned to appreciate the things I have more. I am so thankful to be alive and get to do the things I love and be with all the people I love.

-GOD. I have been so blessed by God. He has given me all these wonderful things in my life. He gave me wonderful parents, a beautiful family and so much more. He healed me and he healed my precious Hope. I have faith that no matter what comes my way, God will be here to lead me through.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy Birthday Hope!

I love my daddy!

A Throne of Her very own!

Our little Princess offically turned two yesterday. WOW! Before we know it she's going to be off to college. We had a little family celebration today. I tried putting Hope down early for her nap so when everyone started coming over she would be up and ready to go. As usual things don't work out quite as planned. I had to wake her up. She wasn't up for seeing everyone at first. She took a little time to warm up. Once we started opening presents she got into it. We sang "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" and I helped her blow her candles out. Mmmmmm... the cake was delicious - THANKS PEGGY!!! Hope got lots of fun stuff. Thanks everyone for coming and for all the great gifts. Hope is our precious little miracle and we enjoyed celebrating her today. Happy birthday big girl!
Love you- Mommy and Daddy

She enjoyed being the center of attention. She recieved a special balloon from her teachers with her favorite candy- M&M's.....YUM! She had a fabulous time.

Christmas at The Tulip Tree.....

I spent Saturday and Sunday following Halloween at the store getting all the holiday merchandise out. I think it turned out looking really cute. Makes me want to get all my Christams decorations out at home.... I can wait a couple more weeks. Our Holiday Open House starts this Thursday, November 13th - Sunday, November 16th....15%off store wide. We also participated in the Holiday Market for the Norman Junior League last night at the new Embassy Hotel in Norman. Very swanky place. We had a lot of business, saw a lot of our customers and made some new ones. It was definately worth our trouble.

Happy Birthday Baylee Noel!

Our Yorkie, Baylee, turned 13 years old Sunday, November 9th. She is my oldest child. We all call her granny grumps- she hates the girls..... jealous ever since they came along and stole her spotlight. We love her dearly though.

High School Musical - Senior Year

I took Hannah, Hadley and a couple of their friends to see High School Musical, Senior Year tonight. The girls loved it. Hannah is in LOVE with Troy (Zack Efron-spelling??)!! It is hard to believe that she is starting to have crushes in 2nd grade. I don't know what we are going to do once she really starts thinking those stinky boys are cute..... Lord help us!! Hadley enjoyed the movie too but I think she was a little more into her popcorn, candy and sprite. They are of course asking for the soundtrack now. Maybe Santa might bring it when he drops off his presents this year. It was fun getting a little girl fun in. Daddy stayed home with Hopey tonight she isn't quite ready for 2 hours of sitting still in the dark. Thanks daddy for watching Hopey so we could have some big girl bonding time. Enjoyed it!
