Dog Gone Fire Ants!!!!

Yesterday, Will and Catelyn were playing out back when all the sudden Catelyn starts screaming. Will runs and picks her up and realizes she has stepped in a bed of fire ants. Not understanding what was going on, she just stood there allowing the evil ants to tear up her little legs. It was absolutely heart breaking. The picture doesn't do it justice at all. She probably has around 30-40 fire ant bites on those little swollen feet. It kept her up all night last night burning and itching. My heart goes out to her. If any of ya'll know of a solution to the burning and itching, PLEASE pass it on. So sorry sweet girl!

Tripp's Frist Hair Cut

Tripp's hair was totally cracking me up. He had such the old man hair style going on. It was so long over his ears, much thicker on the sides and thinner on top. Today I decided to take a stab at cutting his hair. It definitely looks better, although I need to get my sister in law to teach me some tricks of the trade. Here are the before and after shots. I must say the before pictures make me laugh. :)

Opening Presents

Catelyn was priceless opening her presents. This particular present was from my Mom. Dumbo is one of her very favorite Disney movies, and she only got to watch it at my mom's (Mamaw) house because she's the only one that had it. Needless to say, Catelyn was SO excited to have her very own copy. Thanks mom!

Catelyn's 3rd Birthday Party

This year, for Catelyn's 3rd birthday, we had a Mickey Mouse party! Catelyn was precious! She definitely knew what was going on, and had been talking about her birthday party for months! I had so much fun getting ready for it, and was especially excited that I was able to do her invitations, "happy birthday" banner, Mickey and Minnie table decorations, table cloth and Catelyn's 'Minnie' dress all for $10. Woohoo!! I made and prepared everything (with the exception of the cupcakes. I made those the day before the party) before Tripp was born, so come the day of the party, all I had to do was set the table and put her dress on. It made for such an easy party. Catelyn had a fantastic time celebrating with the family and we all enjoyed watching her blow out candles and open presents. Love you sweet girl and happy 3rd birthday! **Pardon all the pictures. They are added mostly for my memories. :)
