our world through instagram {instaDUMP time}

It’s instaDUMP time! Just a few of the things we have been up to lately {through some of my favorite pictures that I have posted on my Instagram feed}! What have you been up to? Are you on Instagram? Don’t you just love it?

    I've been getting ready for Paigey's 6th birthday party all month. The theme is "it's a small world" (because we LOVE the ride and Disneyland and any excuse for a costume party)! I have been collecting all these decorative items for literally months. Time to start bringing it all together. Thanks to the help of Michaels, Marshals, The Plaid Barn, Pick Your Plum, Hobby Lobby and a small adoption shop over at Hugs and Punches!

trying to be happy and celebrate my dad's birthday this year...we miss him so much and are still dealing with our grief...but it felt great to be happy and celebrate his life on the day he was born!

In August we spent my Dad’s birthday trying to be happy and celebrate this year {we made his favorite meal and my sister whipped up this cake}…we miss him so much and are still dealing with our grief…but it felt great to be happy and celebrate his life on the day he was born!

there she goes

this paigey girl of mine is always on the run. and she is fast. she is in a hurry all.of.the.time!
and she is not just in a hurry to get somewhere or play with her friends or finish her chores…she is in a hurry in life to grow up too fast.
i keep telling her to just stop growing up so fast…but she laughs and tells me that she cannot stay little…that she has to grow-up! and she is right.
sniffle.
why do the years goes so quick, i often ask myself?
it’s not easy watching my baby head towards 6…towards kindergarten…towards make-up and boys and trouble with friends and all the difficult choices that lay ahead for my little girl.
i guess it also means maturing and learning and making kind & good choices and becoming a woman after God’s own heart and being my sweet little companion and friend in the years ahead.
those are my prayers and hopes for her.
so I guess it’s not all bad now is it.
sniffle.
maybe if i get all this off my chest now it won’t be so difficult in August on her first day of kindergarten.
sniffle again.
yeah right…a mommy can dream!
