Our "baby" Samantha isn't a baby any more! She turned 3 years old last weekend and boy has she grown up fast! We had a few last min. party changes due to weather but, the kids definately didn't mind...they all got to spend 2 hours at McDonalds! It all turned out fine and everyone had fun! Enjoy the pictures...happy birthday little girl!
Well, our computer had a terrible virus and we were without each other for more than a week! Thanks to Norm we are not only back up and running but, running better than ever! Whew. So, now the big job of where to begin! Not only have I missed Easter but, also Samantha's birthday! So, I'll start with Easter. I took Good Friday "off work" even though I had to go in and work for a few hours in the morning. So, Sydney and Samantha were invited to join the Beall's on a field trip to the Dallas zoo! Everyone had a great time! Saturday we went downtown Plano for a family Easter event. The girls had a great time seeing the Easter Bunny, Samantha did an egg hunt with Ryanne and Elorah. The girls and I made two of Great Grandma's "Lamb" cakes. She used to make them for kids 1st birthday's and Easter. We shared one of the cakes with Mimi Dottie & Papa Larry for their Easter desert. Easter morning brought the Easter bunny hiding eggs (inside this year due to the rain...bummer). We then went to church where there was an amazing cross that was being filled with fresh flowers by all the kids. After church we all went to Aunt Jill's....The Beall's joined us too which was extra great!
everyone one the Gibbs Girls and all our adventures! Recently I had an adventure that was all my own! Yes, last weekend I flew to Palm Beach, FL to spend the weekend with two of my very best friends from St. Louis! We figured out that we've known each other for 14 years! We couldn't believe it. It had been 5 years (atleast) since I'd seen Sarah and Kelly and I did have the chance to hang out just last year while she lived in New Orleans. We had a wonderful time - we only left the hotel once on Sunday afternoon to cross the street to get some ice cream...not that this hotel (Yes, I was very spoiled and we stayed at the Ritz) didn't have any ice cream! :) We spend most all day laying out at the pool and walking the beach. By Sunday everyone was asking me if I knew how red I was...one person made Kelly and I feel so guilty while walking along the beach that we turned around to head back to the hotel! Crazy. It was so great to spend uninterrupted time with them to just get caught up on life and hang out. It was something that I really needed. I was happy to get back home and see my girls and Neal too ofcourse! :) Love you Sarah & Kelly thanks for a wonderful weekend! Can't wait till next time!
Who am I??? There are days that I wonder who I am! Some days I'm Sydney and Samantha's Mom. There are days that I am the St. John's Bay and a.n.a brand expert, Mom of two busy little girls, wife, friend to many, sister, therapist, financial expert, organizer, event planner, shuttle and this list could go on and on. Like many of you there just isn't enough time in the day to keep in touch with those that you'd like to. So, thought I'd try this....enjoy!
