Memorial Day Weekend!

Macey and I decided to head to the beach for the weekend with my family! Christian had a busy weekend of work planned, so we snuck away. We were there Friday through Monday and had a great time, but missed our Daddy! We didn't really do much while there, but it was nice to get away.
Our first evening at the beach was so pretty! I love this picture of Macey!

Macey and I riding on the golf cart! This was her favorite thing to do!

These rocks were so pretty for pictures, but Macey could care less about smiling and looking at the camera!

This was the only I one I got of her looking at the camera out of the 50 I took, HA!
I'm sure this weekend was the start of being at the beach all the time! We go to the beach pretty regularly in the summer and I'm excited!

Yesterday would have been Macey's last day of preschool for the year, but I haven't been happy with some things at the school, so I pulled her out a month early. She only went on Mondays, 9-12, so it wasn't that big of a deal to pull her out. However, I still wanted to compare pictures from when she started in September until now.
September 2012
 May 2013
I definitely think she went from looking like a baby to a little girl! 
We are starting a new school in the Fall two days a week and I know she is going to love it! Now, if I can just get her to stay a baby a little longer!

Let's have a picnic!

Friday morning decided to pack a little picnic lunch and walk Macey to the park in our neighborhood (3 miles roundtrip)! Of course, I decided to do this on of the hottest days of the year so far and got so burnt! It never crossed my mind to put sunscreen on us!
However, we still had fun!
I pushed her in the swings most of the time! The slides were too hot for her to go down. 
She played on this little bumble bee thing at the park! 
And then we ate lunch! She loved it and was so good and ate all her lunch. Maybe I should take to the park for all her meals! And maybe I could get skinny in the process..HA!

Macey Photo Shoot!

Yesterday afternoon I was sitting around the house, so I decided to put Macey in this cute romper and get some pictures! I'm not a professional photographer and no where close to one, so some of the pictures are way to bright, uncentered, and so on...but I just love them!
This is one of my new favorite pictures of her!

"Please mom, NO more pictures"

She is all about flowers these days!

Sweet girl! 
I wonder what she was thinking!?! 
Oh to be a kid again and not have a worry in the world!  
I love her blue eyes in this picture! 
My sweet, pretty girl!
Macey girl,
I love you more than anything in this world! You are such a blessing to this family and make each day brigter. I will always cherish these days we get to spend together! I know in a blink of an eye you will be off to college and I will long for these days and random photo shoots with you! Remember I will always be your biggest fan always cheering for you, while you are out in this big world, doing big things!
 Love, Momma

Strawberry Fun!

I took Macey to pick strawberries yesterday with my mom and dad! We took her to local farm and they had strawberries to pick, tractor to ride, and animals to feed! She loved it!
Ready to go with her bucket!!! 
She was so excited every time she picked a strawberry! 
I love this sweet picture of her! 
I am pretty sure she ate over half the ones she picked! She put one in the bucket and eat one! 
Papa and Macey in front of a tractor! 
She loved the chickens! 
I wanted to bring this cute fella home with me! 
He gave Macey the biggest kiss on the arm! 
Feeding the goats! She had no fear of any of these animals and would put her hand out for them all to eat!

Christian's 30th

Christian turned 30 last Saturday and we had a little Fiesta to celebrate! We had around 25 people come over to help us celebrate! We were a little worried about the weather because I planned for a lot of it to be outside since our house isn't very big, but we got lucky and it didn't rain until 9:00 that night!
The chips and dip section! My sister also brought two dips but they hadn't arrived when I took this picture. 
You can't really tell in this picture but this was a little taco bar! I did ground beef with all the toppings for tacos, chicken taquitos, and corn salad! I must say the food was all really good and it was pretty easy! 
I had a little kid section set up with juice, gold fish, and apple sauce! 
We had sweet tea, water, wine and some Mexican beer to celebrate! 
The birthday boy and his girl! She insisted on helping him blow out the candles! 
I didn't really take any pictures during the party which now I'm regret, so here is one of me with the birthday boy last night! We went to dinner with some friends who couldn't come to the party.
~Christian I hope you had a great birthday! I can't wait to celebrate 30 more with you!~

Mother's Day 2013

Hope you all had a happy Mother's Day!
We had a very low key day, but I enjoyed every minute of it!
I am so blessed by this sweet girl that made me a Momma! We have our moments and we have days where I'm pretty sure we aren't going to make it, but I wouldn't trade her for the world. 
She is my little side kick and I miss her when she isn't around! Having Macey as my daughter truly is the biggest blessing of all! 
My Mom "Nana" and her Grandkids!  
My mom and her girls! My sister and I always give my mom our "professional" opinion on everything and I'm pretty that is why God gave me a daughter....for payback :) 
My sister and her handsome boys!!! They love their momma!
We went to church Sunday morning, took naps, and went to dinner with my family! Pretty good day!

Easter 2013...Better Late Than Never!

I just realized that I haven't blogged about our Easter or really about anything lately. I'm so up in the air about blogging. Sometimes I enjoy it and other times I want to give it up. I like having all our memories in one spot, but I don't like to take the time to write the posts. I enjoy the couple blog friends I have met and keep up with through blogging, twitter, and FB, but feel like I could still keep in touch without blogging! So I'm not sure where I'm going with the blog...but in the meantime I'm going to post about Macey's Easter because I have all oher other Easter's documented on here!
Our Easter morning started with going through her Easter basket! She was so excited about everything...she got a new princess shirt, hat, Sophia the First DVD, necklace & bracelet, bubbles, bath sponge,candy, and toy watch.
After the basket we got ready for church! It was cold and rainy here Easter, so I had to add leggings and a jacket to her oufit. I found this dress at Target for $7.00 and Macey loved it and called it her princess dress, so I let her wear for Easter. 
After church we went to my Aunt's house for lunch and an egg hunt! Unfortanetly, this is the only family picture we got the whole day and Macey wasn't even looking! Oh well, life with a 2 year old. 
The weather cleared up just long enough for a quick Easter egg hunt! Macey loved it this year and had a blast! 
Macey with her two cousins! These are two of her most favorite people! I'm pretty sure they feel the same way about her too! 
My cousin and her family from Kentucky came in town for the weekend! Macey has a ball playing with her girls everytime! I just love this picture of them all!! 
Hope you all are enjoying your Spring! The weather here in NC has been so rainy and cold, we haven't been able to enjoy it at all!
