Friday Night Live

Friday night I attended a Women's Friday Night Live at my friend Casey's church. Casey, her friend Mary and I met at Bread Co for dinner and then went to the event. We had such a good time! Beforehand, we picked out 3 classes / sessions that we wanted to attended. My first session was different from Casey and Mary's. I attended Nutrition and Health. They attended Salad and Dessert Creations. I really liked the Nutrition and Health session, as it was very thought-provoking. It really gave some good insight and information on some things that I would like to change with my family's diet and eating habits. The second session we all attended was Devotions for Kids. This was an amazing class that really gave some great resources in starting this very important time at home. Our third session was Who Are You? (How God Defines Us). This was such a powerful session to end with. I was so happy to have a girls night out and I couldn't think of 2 better women to attend this with. I can't wait for more events like this and / or more time with these 2 awesome women.

Kaitlynn and Dave had a night at home. Aren't these pictures adorable?

Preschool News

Thursday the 25th, I attended Bible Study. Later that afternoon, I met with a preschool director and signed Kaitlynn up for preschool in the fall. We looked into several different preschools, but were most comfortable with the one we signed her up with. One of her friends will also be attending that preschool and going the same days. Kaitlynn will be going 3 days per week. I am excited, yet also sad. I think sad because she is growing up and excited for the same reason (if that makes any sense)!

Ice Age 3 Birthday Cake

Wednesday the 24th, Kaitlynn and I attended Motor Masters class. The theme was bugs.

Later that evening after dinner, we finally cut the Ice Age 3 birthday cake, of course not before we sang "Happy Birthday" to Kaitlynn once again.

Happy 3rd Birthday Kaitlynn!

Tuesday the 23rd was Kaitlynn's actual birthday. I can not believe my baby is 3! These 3 years have seemed to fly by. It doesn't seem possible for her to be 3, yet I can't really remember life without her. She has changed our life so much. She has taught us so much. She was the missing piece in our life. She has been the greatest joy and blessing God has given us.

Pictures from past birthdays:
This is a picture from the hospital when I was in labor (MawMaw and PawPaw Dado are also in this picture).

For Kaitlynn's 3rd birthday, she attended a Grandparent's Class at her school with MawMaw. They had fun singing songs and making crafts. They even sang "Happy Birthday" to Kaitlynn! We picked up lunch and went to Kangaroo Kids where Kaitlynn played with Annabelle. Later that evening, MawMaw took Kaitlynn to Applebee's for a birthday dinner.

Sleeping Beauty Princess

Sunday the 21st after Kaitlynn's birthday party, MawMaw, Dave, Kaitlynn and I went out for dinner to extend celebrating Kaitlynn's birthday. Nothing fancy, just breakfast. Kaitlynn actually slept through most of dinner.

We are slowly changing Kaitlynn's nursery into a big girl room. She picked out the bedding and hopefully sometime soon we will work on changing the decorations.
I love this picture of our sleeping beauty!

Monday the 22nd, Kaitlynn wore a Princess crown and necklace. She attended preschool with MawMaw. She proceeded to tell the boys at preschool that she was a Princess and luckily they were OK with that!
Kaitlynn loves taking pictures in the car.
