A couple things.

I have been so caught up with everyday life (cleaning, changing diapers, cooking, laundry, and REPEAT!) that several days have slipped by without a post! It is totally my intention to post every night about what each day contained, but that is just not reality right now so... oh well.

Here are a couple things I have been meaning to post....

Birthday Breakfast
Scarlett's birthday breakfast was very special. It was made special in part by a sweet gift she received from her Nonni and Pepaw who were all the way on the other side of the world on her big day. This recorded book has made its mark forever! We (meaning mommy too!) love it.

The words of this book are what I wrote on her 1 year post. It is a children's hymn from 1850.
I love what it says. Scarlett just smiled and smiled as she heard Nonni and Pepaw's voices reading to her. It was precious and we will cherish this book and its meaning forever.

It was so nice because Mitch did not have to be at school until 11:00 that morning so he got to enjoy some time with the birthday girl.

As you can see, she took her birthday cards very seriously....

And as for the menu .... pumpkin pancakes, scrambled eggs with cheese, blueberries and whole organic cows milk (which she is NOT interested in).

Sorry to post so many things about Scarlett's birthday, but it was sort of a big deal, ha!!!

And here is the little wild woman herself, driving her cozy coupe she received from Lolli and Pop. She loves it! Although in this video she is a little distracted by Callie (what's new?!?). And please excuse the nasty old concrete slab in our back yard ...we are in the middle of tearing it apart. Watch out NASCAR!!!!!
