The Weekend!

During the day on Friday, Derrick and Macey came and visited me at the school for our homecoming peprally! She's so going to be a cheerleader one day. She took a pic with one of my previous cheerleaders too. She wanted to eat the bear on her mum!

Friday night, we all went to the RHS Homecoming Football Game. We only stayed until halftime because Macey started to get fussy. I could kick myself because I didn't take pics, but I did make the girls some mums! I thought they turned out pretty cute! I can't believe I didn't take any pics though. Macey had a cute little zebra and sequined dress on :( Maybe I'll put her in it again and we'll just have to post some pics!

Today, (Saturday,) we've done absolutely nothing! Daddy made us a big breakfast and he cooked chicken on the grill for a late lunch. Baby girl tried out her "Jump&Go," for the first time, and she seems to really love it! She pushes the buttons and swings around a little bit.

The last pics posted are of Macey when she woke up from her nap. She's holding that head up sooo good! I just love those sweet cheeks!
We also took a walk last week, so I took some of her while she was in her stroller and then some of me and her.
Have a great SUNDAY!

The Weekend

Macey and I have been under-the-weather for the past 2 days, but on Saturday, we felt pretty good! We went down to Palmer, Texas, for a dove hunt and us girls hung out and talked till the guys got finished hunting. For dinner, we ate brisket, sour kraut, etc! Macey wore her, "Little Miss Who," onesie, which features, "Cindy Who!" She enjoyed seeing all of her family and cousins and it was a good day to spend time with the family.
The pics below are Derrick and Dad getting back from hunting, some views of the scenery, and Little Miss Who!

Pom Poms

A couple of people have asked where I got the Poms, and Ashley and I both got them at Michaels. They come in Pink or Aqua Blue. They have accent colors with them. In the pink are: hot pink, light pink, and peach. In the blue, there are: light blue, darker blue, and green.

Party in the front, business on the sides

O.k. So after the pregnancy, my hair has been falling out. I've heard that this happens and Taren testifies to it as well.
Not only is my hair falling out, but baby girl's is as well. In regards to the mullet saying, "Business in the front, party in the back," Macey's is a little more like "Party in the front, business on the sides."
Poor things' hair is falling out on the sides, but those curls are beginning to stick straight up. In some pics, it almost looks like I'm cutting the front, straight across, but then curling the back pieces. Strange.
See for yourself.


I'm so thrilled about my blog makeover! Jennifer designed it for me and I couldn't be happier! Thanks Jenn!

About the topic of decor, Ashley, (Macey's babysitter,) introduced me to Martha Stewart pom poms. Her daughter, Emma, has pink poms hanging from her ceiling. To add a whimsical touch to Macey's room, I went out and got the pom poms in light blue and aqua blue. I hung them from pink ribbon and attached them to the ceiling. Her room is so girlie and magical; I wish I could lay in there each morning and see the little blue poms dancing around :)
Check out the pics below. The pics don't do them justice though!
Thanks Ash for another great idea!

Church Service

This morning, we presented Macey to the congregation at LakePointe. She wore a white dress that Taren and I had when we were little. She looked soo pretty!

Girlfriends and Family!

Macey has been so lucky to have wonderful gilfriends/family in her life! Her cousin, Camdyn, is such a little doll and they seem to enjoy one another more and more when they're together. The pics below show Cam and Macey laying together, holding hands, and Cam grabbing Macey's face. Cam gets so excited when Macey lays beside her! I look forward to the day when they can do everything together! Taren and I have it all planned out! Swimming lessons, dance, cheer, school, etc!
I can't wait for them to look back at these pics and laugh! What a wonderful way to raise a daughter with another "daughter" I consider my own!

Macey has a WONDERFUL babysitter named Ashley, who also has a daughter, Emma. I'm so thankful that God has brought Ashley and Emma into our lives! Emma and Macey lounge around together and Emma has even taken on the role as "Big Sis" as she reads a book to Mace.

Two older half-sisters bring much entertainment into Macey's world. Life is a bit different when the two enter the house! Macey is used to the quiteness of her home, but LOVES to smile and be loved by Haley and Kendall. Everyone thinks Kendall and Macey favor and I would have to agree. Kendall holds such a big place in my heart and I can't wait to see how much her older sister's teach her! In November, we're going to take Christmas pics as a family and I can't wait to dress "The Blondes",and Macey in their tutu's for a photo shoot! Derrick has always said "We have so much to be thankful for!"
