I think my close friends know that I am very "feminine" at heart, but when God blessed me with my firstborn son..."Corey"...He opened my heart up to a whole new world! Corey has loved creepy, crawly things since he was about two, I believe! He is a walking encyclopedia of information regarding insects, reptiles, and even birds. Let's see...He has had fire-belly frogs, hermit crabs, lizards, various insects and the list goes on! He is currently the proud owner of "Leia", the leopard gecko(who eats live insects for dinner!). He so wanted me to share this with my blogging friends! He would love to own a snake, but I have to draw the line somewhere! ha! I DO love tea parties, but I wouldn't trade my boys and all they enjoy for anything...I still scream when I see a spider, though!(smile)I also added some pictures of our beautiful golden..."Buckeye". Hope that all you girls enjoy this post(as you sip from your china teacups)...

I can't think of anything more breathtaking than a baby dressed all in white..pure,sweet and vulnerable...a blessing from the Lord! Thanks, Shelly and Greg, for inviting us to share in this beautiful day with you! "Aly" looked like an angel in her gorgeous white dress...I think we all shed tears as Anita sang "You are a Masterpiece"! God is truly so good! After the dedication...family and friends shared a delicious,beautiful meal together. We love you, Aly! Thought that I would share my pictures...

Guess I am still a little girl at heart...I love tea parties! I enjoy collecting teapots...I have one that was my Mamaw Kennedy's that I will always treasure! I recently was given a teacup and saucer set that was Danny's Grandmothers. My 6 year old "Cassie" has inherited my love of tea parties...It is not uncommon for us to have a tea party in the middle of the afternoon on any given day. She loves planning the menu and usually Cade is invited to come, too! She and I have special memories of the day we had the priviledge of taking tea at the American Girl's Tea House in Chicago...The food was beautiful and each American doll even had a place to sit at the table! On her fourth birthday, we had a "girl's day out" to a tea house with her good friend(and mine,too). On her fifth birthday, we had a real tea party for all of her girlfriends. Everyone came dressed in tea party finery...They looked adorable! The menu included butterfly and flower shaped sandwhiches, fruit kabobs, fancy crackers with cheese, soft party mints, cookies, and "pink" tea! We had so much fun! Our ladies from church have gone to different tea houses. We once had a very fancy, catered tea party by candlelight...all the ladies wore hats! I would love to go to a "high tea" in London! Would anyone like to go with me? (ISN'T IT FUN TO BE A GIRL?)

Happy New Year to all my fellow bloggers...Trust you all had a wonderful Christmas and that your 2008 will be blessed! Thought that I would share a few of our Christmas and New Year festivities with you...We so enjoyed being with family and friends! Just can't believe that it is over and we are on to a brand new year! I am trusting God for a wonderful year...I want to "slow down" and enjoy each precious day! Playing in the snow with my kids, snuggling with my husband, reading a good book in front of the fireplace, enjoying a cup of hot chocolate topped with marshmallows...(and yes...I would love to lose a few pounds!--smile)
