Love Actually

Unexpected blessings are a gift, my Gracie is one of them...

she was born on sept 11 and she came into our lives and melted our hearts



and how we celebrated our blessing with laughter



I found this three tier wood stand at the flea

and Princess Kristin made all of her beautiful cupcakes

and sweet little banners on top

then my girlfriends daughter Brittany made

her darling Hello Kitty cake



they were so yummy and we gobbled them up




our blessing is SEVEN...

she is a spitfire with a heart that is as big as the sky

I thank God everyday for her




her first time bowling and she actually did great


the blessings were endless as the day came to a fold




Thank you so much to PK who also

designed my beautiful blog

and shot the photography of our celebration

for any of you ladies who are interested stop on over

she has amazing talent...


my days start and end with you my Gracie love...

Oh Kate, she's so beautiful! They grow up way too fast. Jesenia just turned 11 on Thursday.
Savor every moment, for in the blink of an eye
they're gone...you and I know this all too well.

I've had Jesenia's birthday post on hold for 3 days because I haven't had the time to look for the pics I want to add before I publish it.
She already asked me why her sister got a b-day post and she didn't...Ouch! I hope Late is still better than Never and I'm not a "bad mom".

When will the Lord answer my plead for 30 hour days. lol

Luv Ya Much!
