  1. NOT FROM EXPERIENCE OF COURSE....I REPEAT, NOT FROM EXPERIENCE... but this is the first time I've heard of a fireman putting clothes ON at a party! Ha!!

    I had fun with you this morning! Thanks for bargain shopping with me!

    I HATE hearing about poor little Aubrey's eye. I'm getting her a helmet and some bubble wrap for her birthday! Poor Baby!

    Autumn is so dang sweet. I love her : )

  2. Ok, this was just EXHAUSTING to ready lady! OMGoodness, I wonder how many calories you burned!?hehe Poor Aubrey falling off the trailer. Girl you know me, I would've been like "O Father":)haha Bless her heart and I pray she heals quickly and without scar! Please give her a big hug and kiss for me! Her hair looked absolutely gorgeous too. Just precious! And tell Autumn she is such a sweet girl to do something special for her sister to make her feel better! What a blessed family you are!

  3. I meant to say "This was EXHAUSTING to read!" not "ready"....can you tell I'm tired:)

  4. I'm cracking up, Miranda! Not from experience, huh? I'm going to whatever party you're *not* going to next time!

    Poor Mater! Love that kid in her tiara and massive head wound! Only a woman can muscle through that pain and be glamorous while doing so:))


Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment! I love reading what you have to say!
