Double Digits, Kaylee?


Really today you turn 10? Double digits?  3 more years until you are a teenager?  6 more years until you will be driving down the driveway?
You have really grown up way too fast!!  What a beautiful girl you have grown into.  You are so smart and such a perfectionist.  You truly have a heart of gold and really would like to be friends with everyone. This fall you will be a fourth grader and it seems just like yesterday you were gearing up for kindergarden!!  Your sense of humor is fabulous you make us laugh all the time.  You love to scuffle with your Daddy and you love to read to Kara Brooke.  You are a great big sister even though you aggravate her sometimes and cause big fights.....she LOVES you to pieces and would follow you to the end of the world.
You love to play softball and basketball and most recently you have taken up golf!!  Again, even in sports you have a huge heart and lots of dedication and that is what I love about you.  I always remind you that heart, dedication and attitude will take you along way.  You always work hard no matter what!!

You are one amazing daughter and I thank God everyday for a healthy you!!  I hope you know how much Daddy and I love you!!
Always remember to take the high road KK!!!  :)

Kaylee picked Long Horn for her birthday meal, she was wanting some steak!!!

Nana and Papaw surprised you with a Kindle.....ummmm a bit surprised there sweet girl??

The folks at Long Horn sang to ya and brought out a yummy dessert!!!

Tom & MeMe hooked you up with amazon gift cards to the tune of about $200.00 to use with your Kindle.....not to mention the other gifts you got!  I think you had a pretty awesome day!!!

Happy 10th Birthday Kaylee Wreanne!!

Kaylee's 10th Birthday party

Today Kaylee celebrated her double digit party with her girlfriends!!  Once again she chose a swim party, she has realized she can have more friends with a swim party!!!  LOL
She wanted to theme her party around her softball team whose colors are navy and gold.  Yes this was the first blue party I've ever done and yes it just about killed me!!!  ha!  But that is what our girl wanted so that is what we did!  
Another fabulous cake by Valerie at Wild about Cakes.

Here is the whole gang!!

And of course we had to do a funny group picture too!
(Check out KB, LOL!)

Thanks to all of you that came!
  Kaylee has truly been blessed with some amazing friends!

Jackson, TN

We had a good weekend trip to Jackson with Kaylee and her ball team, although the girls did not play very well we still had a good time.  Our coaches had promised the girls an overnight trip and boy oh boy did the girls have fun.  They could have cared less that we were there to play ball and acted as if they had never swung a bat before!!!  As parents we all very frustrated...but oh well...we have to remember that they are still kiddos too!!

This is probably one of my favorite pictures of Kaylee playing ball.  That swing looks perfect and she has worked really hard to get there!!!

Next weekend is Kaylee's 10th birthday!!!

This and That

Kara Brooke's new favorite breakfast food....ICE CREAM!!!  She loves ice cream and thinks its the best  breakfast food ever!!!  Is it bad that I let her eat it, I mean it is milk, right?

The weather has heated up and we are looking for ways to cool off!!  Kara Brooke got this pool for her birthday and the girls have enjoyed it so much.

A couple of weeks ago we went to see Kaylee get  her honor at Honor's Day.  She was one out of four in her class that stayed on the Principals list ( all A's) all year long!!!  Such a huge accomplishment and she makes us so proud!!!  So hard to believe that she is going to be a 4th grader this fall and she will be 10 in a few days...where oh where does the time go???

Notice that Kaylee does not have her glasses on????  She is now wearing contacts!!  I can't believe it, I can't believe that I actually have a child enough to sport contacts!  She has really done great with them too.  She was having trouble playing ball in the sun with her glasses on and really needed to be able to wear sun glasses so Nana suggested that we get her contacts with her prescription that is the same as her glasses.  We went to the eye Dr. to get fitted for contacts and Kaylee's eye's had changed dramatically in just 10 months.  I could not believe it, with her glasses on out of her left eye she could only see the E and then the next line down on the chart!!!  I stood there in amazement, disbelief and felt very sad that she couldn't see any better than that with her glasses on.  She had not been complaining or anything...bless her heart, she said she knew she could see better with her glasses on and just thought that was as good as it got.  After she got her contacts with the right prescription, you should have seen the smile on that girls was like we seriously gave her the world!!!

I love that girl...what a blessing she is!!!

Memorial Day we just hung out at the pool at Nana and Papaw's house.  We had a very relaxing day and we are so thankful for past, present and future military men and women that fight for our freedom!!
