Today is my mom’s birthday so I wanted to take a minute and wish her a wonderful birthday.  I consider my mom to be one of my best friends.  I talk to her EVERYDAY at 7:45 am on my way to work.  She has always been there when I just need to vent, cry, or just need a friend to talk to.  She is an amazing wife, mom and Mimi.  I love her more than words can express and I hope she has a wonderful birthday.  I am so excited that I will be able to be with her this year for her birthday (first time in a very long time!).  I have a special birthday dinner and dessert planned for tonight! (photos were taken by my talented sister-in-law Dana Perkins @ Tin Star Photograph)

Moving on… This week I shared a look into our daily life.  It seems like our household is always on the go. A DAY IN OUR CRAZY LIFE…

I also posted one of my favorite monthly blog topics – THE KIDS BEHIND THE BLOG.  I think this post had some of the most hilarious responses  yet.

Our family pictures were scheduled for this past Sunday so I surprised the girls with a trip to Blo – Blow Dry Bar.  They were so excited to have someone else fix their hair.

I think Abigail would have fallen asleep in the chair – she was so relaxed!

All pretty!!  Sadly our pictures were cancelled because it was raining so bad Sunday afternoon!!!  At least we all had beautiful hair.  Now we are trying to figure out when we will squeeze family pictures into our schedule – always a challenge!

I had never tried a Pumpkin Spice Latte until this year (I know huge shocker!!) but I am now addicted to all things pumpkin spice.  So when my friend  Jenna @ Tractors & Glam posted a picture of a Pumpkin Spice Latte bottle that she purchased at Wal-Mart I knew I had to go get it.  I was so glad our local Wal-Mart had this in stock and it is so good!!

I even warmed it for a nice treat while I was catching up on my TV shows this week

And while I shopping I also find this yummy snack!!  It taste just like a Pumpkin Cheesecake!

Finally, we have a very exciting weekend planned.  This weekend everyone in our family will be in town for two major events. Saturday night Kate has her first Honor Choir performance.  We all can’t wait to see her and her friends sing before the Texas Legends game.

On June 15, 2016 Abigail asked Jesus to live in her heart.  I am so glad that I captured the moment she was praying with Danny and I.  We are so proud of her decision that she made all on her own. So this Sunday Abigail will be baptized in front of our entire family and church body.  Danny will baptize her just like he did with Kate.  It will be a very special moment for our family.

Well that is a wrap for this week.  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
