My Baby Boy Joel hit the double digits today. I can not believe he is 10 yrs. old already! Seems just like yesterday when we brought this little bundle home from the hospital. Joel is such a sweet, smart, and good boy We are so proud of him!

Happy Birthday Joel! We Love You So Much Sweet Boy!

This first picture is the newest picture I took of Joel a few weeks ago for our Basketball Team. The rest of the pictures were from over the summer. You can see how long his hair has gotten since then. He has had a couple of trims too.

A Get-A-Way!

Karlton and I were able to sneak away for some much needed ALONE time to Charleston this weekend. My parents kept all 5 kids for us so we could go. We only went for 1 night but it was soooooooo nice!

We got there around 10:30 on Saturday morning and did a little shopping ( at the old market) and we stopped by the candy store and bought us a warm Praline... yummy!

We had planned on going to our favorite French restaurant but they closed down......bummer! So we went to our other favorite Restaurant 82 Queens. I was not at all disappointed to go there! ;0)

Then we had some time to kill until we were able to check in to our Inn. We used to stay here all the time until the girls came home. So, it has been about 5 yrs. since we have been to the Meeting St. Inn. We Love this place. I highly recommend it! They have a delicious Wine and Cheese at 5:30 and a wonderful breakfast too!

Our room.... I love these high rice beds..... the kind you have to have the stairs for or just a really good run and jump to get up on! lol.... We have a bed like this but it is not this tall.... I told Karlton he will have to work on making our bed a little taller, he agreed.

The rest of the pictures are just of us walking around the historic city and doing some more shopping on Kings Street.

Karlton and I were able to go to a movie that night. We saw  "Just Go With It" and it was hilarious! The next morning I woke up and went for a run...I thought I would only do about 3.5 miles but ended up loving the run so much I ran my most so far.... 6.3 miles! I am ready for my 10K now ;0) I ran down to the Battery and up along the sea wall to the water park and back to the hotel and went again because it was so Beautiful! We had wonderful weather, it even got really warm on Sat! We could not have asked for a better trip!

I will be posting more pictures over the next few days....I just wanted to savor them....

Formal Tutu Dress

Remember the formal tutu dress I made for one of my customers? Well here is the little cutie who wore it....Isn't she precious!!!! Here daddy took her to a father daughter dance and her mommy wanted her to wear a tutu dress and asked if I could make one..... I even made the tutu puff hair bow to match. She even got on the dance floor and shook her bootie. I Love it!!!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day! How is your Valentines Day going to be spent? My kids woke up to home made Valentine Cards this morning from me (us) with some little goodies....heart shaped little personal cakes and candy. The gave the girls the little message candies and the boy chocolate. The kids exchanged their cards and candy last night to one another since we have such a busy day today. They were dressed for their parties and took their Valentine Cards and candy to school today! Well....Sara Ava and Joel did. Josiah took a big box of chocolates out the door for his girl friend ;0).

I gave Karlton his chocolates and picture Valentines Card. It all has a Charleston meaning to it since that is where were will be spending our Valentines, next weekend....Alone! We have not been to Charleston alone since before the girls came home from Guatemala. We are staying at our Favorite place... The Meeting Street Inn. It takes us back in time (which I Love!) and they have wonderful breakfast and wine and cheese! The card I gave Karlton looked like this................

He took this picture of me at The Inn when we were in Charleston for the day back in August. Karlton took me in the fence and said " here at least let me get a picture of you here since we have not been here in forever! " ;0)

This will be our special gift to one another and I can't wait! There is a really yummy French restaurant that we will be eating at that is just down the street from this Inn, with lots of shopping near by! ;0) We also are planning on going to a movie....and just walking around the historic section where we will be staying. One of my favorite things to do there is to look at all the old houses and gardens, and go on a tour of one or two. What more could a girl ask for!!!! Oh yeah......Karlton surprised me with these beautiful roses on Thursday! I was shocked... the night before I was saying to my Bible Study that after almost 16 years of marriage I don't get flowers anymore. I think someone said who was it?? lol...... ;0)  Karlton did good didn't he!?
