Wilkins' 3rd Birthday...

It's my party and I'll cry if I want too!!!

After a long day of running around, gathering donations for the tornado victims of our hometown, we decided to go ahead and take Wilkins to Chucky Cheese for her birthday.

I could have just went home and went to bed but the things we do for our kids...

She was such a good sport all day that I hated not to do a little something so after being out all day we ran home, unloaded our vehicles, changed clothes, Haley stopped at Publix and picked up a small cake.  It was just me, mom, Haley, LeAnne, the kids, and Haley's neices Shelby and Mckenzie but the kids had fun and that is all that matters. 

All she kept asking for was candles for her birthday so when Logan blew them out as soon as we lit them she had a melt down.  But all turned out well in the end.  Now if only we can get it together to reschedule her birthday party that was cancelled last Saturday due to the tornadoes all well be great!! 

Tomorrow and Wednesday will be very busy getting all this stuff organized and to Alabama but I am really looking forward to getting it all down there.  However, I am not looking forward to seeing my hometown destroyed.  I have so many memories tied to so many different places there that it is going to be really hard to see.


Happy 3rd Birthday Wilkins!

I can't believe that Wilkins will be 3 years old tomorrow.  In light of everything that has been going on her birthday has kind of gotten away from me.  She was suppose to have a birthday party this past Saturday but with the tornadoes affecting so many of our friends and family we decided to postpone it for a couple of weeks. 

And now with this Clothing and Toiletry Drive, I find myself sitting here realizing I haven't even bought her one thing for her birthday...absolutely horrible!!  So sometime tomorrow between picking up everyone's donations and getting it all organized while trying to fit in time to write an 8 page paper (which I should be doing now instead of blogging) we are going to somehow have a small get together for her birthday. 

So before I bring this blog to a close I would just like to say that I am extremely grateful that all of my family was unharmed by these tornadoes because most of them were only a minute away from where all of them hit.  Unfortunately, I can't say that for a lot of our friends so my heart goes out to them.  Not only have many deaths been lost but a lot of places destroyed that have a lot of good memories for me.  So on Wednesday will probably be hard going to the place where I grew up and seeing that a lot of it is gone.  So for now just keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers...especially the families that have loved ones missing because I think that is the worse thing, not knowing.
