Cakes, carnival, preschool and NJHS

Ainsley Grace loves to make cakes and cupcakes. So all by herself she made a cake to donate to the Carnival Cake Wheel and some cupcakes for the Munger Place Home Tour Cake Walk.  It was adorable.  Whit lost his mind wanting to eat them and horrified that he couldn't!

The carnival was a blast this year.  Here is me with my sweet friend Kammie.  It's our 1 year anniversary.  Oh, and Lexi and Jack's! OMG!

Here is whoopy riding the pirate ship with Daddy.

Here are the kids taking a "selfie" with Father John.  Hilarious.

Speaking of Selfies.

Ainsley Grace donated a cake and won a cake from Dallas Affairs!!!!  We totally won on that deal.  It was super yummy. But so sweet we could hardly finish.  

 Whitaker is looooving preschool. He is one tired and happy little boy when he gets in the car!  His teacher sends adorable pictures of the shenanigans in the classroom.  I LOVE THEM.  I love seeing him in this setting.... He is so extra cute. I went to a birthday party this weekend for him and 2 people came up to me and said, "My child comes home and tells me how much they like Whit and now nice he is."  Hahaha!!!! Yes I laughed out loud the first time, but the 2nd time I felt full of pride.  Maybe, just maybe the little spoiled monster that we love to indulge will be okay.  He is the biggest gift to our family....

My car got TeePee'd.  I know the culprit and paybacks are going to be BIG!

Sweet Alexandra qualified for National Junior Honor Society.  And she has already volunteered 3 hours at our home tour.  We are proud of this precious girl of ours.

Ainsley Grace did not have a big birthday party this year, just invited a few friends to hang out at the mall and go to dinner at the Magic Time Machine.  She had a fabulous time, we could have stayed at the mall the entire day. Girls come by it naturally!!

I remember very very vividly them handing her to me.  She was so beautiful, she was big and she already looked like a perfect little baby.  She quivered she was so tender.  Her color was so perfect, the nurse told me, "She looks like a peach."  So sweet.  Happy Birthday to one incredibly sweet, strong, funny, creative little girl.  We love you so much Ainsley Grace.

Goofy Hair session. 

Dress up!

 The Mall had a big Romance Novel setup with makeup artists, etc.  It was hilarious! And, FUN!

She loves to try on high heels.  Since I own NONE that's all she wants to do at the mall!  LOL!

 Toasting to her.  They had fun at the MTM.  It was a perfect Birthday Dinner.

Here is the picture they took.  Poor AG got the short end of the stick.  I won bigtime!  Don't I look FABULOUS as an 11 year old girl?!?!  So fun.

Things are underway and the first day of preschool

Here are my sweeties.  We now have a JV cheerleader and a Varsity cheerleader.  So fun for them. Go WILDCATS!

Everyone is still sick w the cough.... Here was our Friday afternoon doctor visit.

No explanation necessary. lol!

Whitaker finally started preschool.  His teacher came to our house for a home visit.  Here they are reading a book.  It was really sweet his school does this bc he was so excited after that.  Kept telling everyone how his school has Plaaay DOUGH and sand!  He said from the beginning he is going to go to school to have, "donuts and to count his letters."  I was surprised when they sent out a playdate on the playground with donuts.  Funny.  Here was his first day.  The first time in almost 13 years I have been alone.  :-(

Anderson went on a fun hunting trip with Daddy!  He LOVED it and gave me all the gruesome details which I will not share bc I'm trying to get it out of my head.  Boy heaven.
