I Love Christmas time, the food, family, tree, and remembering the true meaning of Christmas what a special time of year. This year is extra special because it is Jacks first Christmas. I have had my heart set on the Santa at Callaway Gardens even before Jack was born. He is such a pretty santa.

I hope everyone has a magical Christmas and has time to sit and remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Jack now has two new cousins. Olivia Carol and Vivian Leigh were born Sunday October 25th at only 27 weeks gestation. These girls are truly little angles and need everyones prayers. Olivia was born 2lb 4oz and 14" long and Vivian was born 1lb 6oz and 12"long. I ask that you keep then in your prayers.

Growing like a Weed

Jack is now 16 weeks old and is now rolling over from both sides and you can just see it in his eyes that if he could just move he would be into everything. He loves to look at everything, must put everything in his mouth, and loves his stuffed kitty we call Pouncer. He is such a joy, he wakes up with a smile ready to play and loves to sit up like a big boy and to be walked around.
I will leave you with a picture of my first cake. I want to learn how to make birthday cakes for Jacks birthdays and Dorrie was kind enough to let me practice on her daughters 7Th birthday cake.

Roll Tide

Football season is in full swing so that means family parties at our house. Phillip and I enjoy having our family over to watch the game. This being Jacks first football season I have enjoyed dressing him in his Crimson and white.

His shirt says "The Crimson Tide will send you home crying to your Mommy"
I also like to make red velvet cake and elephant cookies to enjoy while watching the game.

I will leave you with a photo of the gift I got for Phillip it is a signed picture of Jack 1 week old that says "To Jackson Roll Tide Nick Saban"

Well it has been awhile since i have updated this and since Jack is three months old today I though it would be a good day to start back. He Is such a Joy. Today I will share with you some of his first things.
His first moments.

His first bottle.

His first surgery(He had to have a hernia fixed)

His first bath in his big boy tub.

His first Sunday in church

And his first Alabama football game.

He has had many so many first in his short three months and many many more to come.

3rd wedding anniversary

Yesterday May 13th was out 3rd wedding anniversary. Phillip is wonderful to me on our anniversary every year. He always plans a special trip that I never know where we are going until we get there and he always has me a special gift. This year our trip had to change last minute because of rain so we went on a day trip to Desoto Caverns. We had a wonderful day just spending time together.
My gift this year was a 8 weeks old American Bulldog puppy we named Bella. Bella was beautiful and I was in love with her at first sight however little did we know Bella was sick with Parvo when Phillip picked her up. Today we took her to the vet and Dr.Moore said treatment would not help. This tragedy has broken our hearts and we will miss that little girl for along time.

I want my husband to know I Love him and thank you for all you do for me. I can't wait for our baby Jack to arrive and a new chapter in our lives to begin.

Jacks Baby Shower in Opelika

Six wonderful Ladies gave me a beautiful baby shower on May 2nd at Cindy Cannons house. When the showers begin you really know that the precious baby you have been waiting on for so long will soon be arriving. I would like to thank everyone for coming and for all the adorable goodies for Jack.

Cindy Made the most adorable diaper cake. I just LOVE it!!!
After the shower Phillip was able to finish putting Jacks dresser together. A little note of advice always check to see how many pieces your furniture will be coming in this came in about 100 pieces and took forever to put together THANK YOU HONEY YOU DID A WONDERFUL JOB.
