A new season of life

Two big events happened to me this past year. I turned 18 and I graduated! :)I remember being little and thinking that it would be forever before I turned 18. I also remember being 11 years old sitting on the church pew watching my sister graduate! My how time flies! Here are a few photos from my senior photos and from my 18 birthday.

We had to do a fun photo.

Graduation day.

We did a photo shoot before we went to my graduation party.

We decided to put my life story into cakes and cupcakes. I gathered some items of mine and we displayed it on the tables. In the photo above is the beginning of the table. Baby pink cupcakes. Also above the table my mom put some of my baby photos on scrapbooking paper and taped them on the wall. Next I have my cowgirl hat, huntin hat, then a stack of some of my books.

Then I have music notes on cupcakes, a piano, and a record player. We couldn't find a small violin to put on display. Next to that we have a farm cake. Horses and chickens on it. Then in front we put my cowgirl mug.

This cake is my history cake. 1861 and 1940. 

I enjoy hunting with my dad and I did 9 years of classical ballet.

 At the end of the table we had a small wedding cake topper and put a question mark on it. Cause I don't know who I am going to marry! :)

My dad sharing his words of love.

Me making my speech. As you see in the photo I am standing on a stepping stone. My parents surprised me and presented me a stepping stone to stand on as I am stepping into a new season of life. This stepping stone was also a symbol of their lives being laid down for me to walk closer with the Lord in my own life.

My friend and I had taken of photo together that past Sunday and she printed it and put it into a frame for me :)
That week I got to go roller blading! I haven't roller bladed in a long time.
 As part of my 18th birthday  my mom and I drove to North AL to surprise my friend Bria.
For part of my 18th birthday I picked up 3 sisters and we went to Marble Slab for ice cream! I love that place!

Oh, Come All Ye Faithful

Christmas has come and gone. I love Christmas! I only wish it would snow down here in the south. When I sing "White Christmas" people think of snow. But I think of cotton, white icing, and white fluffy clouds. I know I haven't posted in a while. I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


 We had three adorable girls come over and decorate a gingerbread house and make gingerbread cookies.

My nephew "Trey" was really excited about opening his presents.

My dad's side of the family over on Christmas Eve.

My famous peanut butter balls. I made about 115 Christmas week.

My gift to Trey. He loves watching Andy Griffith.
