About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Aleck's Birthday Party in Alabama

We visited Alabama last month and Aleck had an early birthday party with family. Papaw Brooks birthday is March 20th, so Aleck and he shared a birthday cake. Aleck Jefferson, was named after Papaw Brooks. If you look at the cake, one end has Aleck's name and birthdate and the other end has Papaw Brooks name and birthdate. This was such a special celebration. Aleck got into the cake and Papaw Brooks got a chuckle out of Aleck getting icing everywhere. This was Aleck's first time to eat cake and HE LOVED IT!

Aleck got this adorable hat from Aunt Darla and Uncle Paul and looked so cute with the hat turned sideways.

I had to be fast with my camera to snap a picture with Aleck sitting in Nana's lap. For those of you that have been around AJ, you know he runs 90 miles an hour and rarely sits still long enough for a picture.

I love the picture of PawPaw laughing. When Aleck was in his cupcake here it was a belly laugh to watch him. Looks like his gets his red hair from Tom's mom *big gin*

I love the pic with the hat.
That is so neat to have shared his birthday party with PawPaw. Those are definitely pictures to cherish.
He is such a cute boy.
