{Summer Reads}

No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally – and often far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.” C.S. Lewis
How awesome is that quote? 
 I always read a book to my kids in the summer.
  At this point The Littles like it and its all but painful to The Teen. . .
I was excited to see her post.
And even more excited we have read many of them.

{Mothers Day}

 Its no secret that "Moms" are some of my most favorite people on the planet!
I love and adore watching these sweet precious ladies care for their littles like a shepherd looking after his flock.  Watching.  Listening. Teaching. Oh their efforts and tasks are unending. . .what a blessing mothers are.
 I am certainly blessed with a Godly Mom! She is the absolute most precious soul.
Did a sweet little something for my "Church Mommas" this year.

{Got my own Momma some ferns!}

God Bless all us Mommas!

{Lily turns 11!}

This was fun y'all! I mean it! 
How ever much fun throwing a birthday party for Middle School/Preteen Girls can be! Did I mention my husband was gone with the military?
 Oh-no-he-wasn't . . . 
Oh-yes...he was. . .
{Lovely SAMS cupcakes (cant beat them!), smashed pinkie one on the side-LOVE that too!}
Just look at this precious 11 year old girl!

My day started with needing 15 BIG bouncy balls!
 I went to Walmart.
You know the BIG Cage?
They were in that thing.
All on TOP.
All the starts, polka dots, and chevron. . .
ON Top.
So I ask for help.
Got lots of help.
IG'd & FB'd my experience and landed that Walmart Employee some huge recognition.
Cool, huh?
A little customer service goes a long way with me...true that.
Lily wrote on each ball.
"Thank you for coming to my party!"
Now to get them hung up in the rafters of the pavilion. . . 
$8 bird net from Yeager's.
We did it!
{"We" in with my parents help! Thank you Lord (seriously)}
Cokes on Ice.
Swedish Fish for the Ocean Water.
Sprite with a little blue food coloring. . .
Thank you, Pinterest. 
I Love You.
Lily always request the Candy-In-The-Jar Guessing Game.
I really like it too.
Such a small thing that brings such fun.
Nothing like a little friendly competition right?
Is "Girl Stuff" not the cutest?
Oh, it is! I just love all the smell-good, sparkles, and bright pink!
Oh my stars, I love these girls.
So much Sweetness.
All of it. . . including SASS!

Lily, I love and adore you.
You make me happy from head to toe!
Happy Birthday to you!

{Who Can Stand It?}

 Happy Memorial Day! 
 Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you.
To all our brave men and women that serve this great country.
Those that paved the way in our past.
Those that continue to march forward.
My hydrangea outside is just so lovely. . . but I want those lovelies inside too?
Who can stand leaving them alone outside?
I snipped just one!
