So excited to announce the 
 My sweet friend, Kendi and her mother, Teresa just opened up the 
cutest cupcakery shop in Kinston.
Last Friday was their grand opening where they had hundreds of 
cupcakes on hand, coffee and live music for you to enjoy.

 When you walk in the door you are greeted with these beautiful sweets looking
right at you!

 These sweet faces will be able to help you make your selection 
when you visit Sweetiepies!

 We got to take a sneak peek into the kitchen where all the magic happens.

 Bailey was so excited to see her B.F.F. Emma at the grand opening.

 They have some great art pieces on the walls that really add to the atmosphere.
There is also christian music playing which I love!

 After you make your selection you can eat in or take outside which is what we
did to enjoy the live music.
On Friday's they will have live music.

I got my cupcake in hand and after this picture I immediately devoured it.
So happy for my friends on this new journey.
Prayers for great success!

First Day of School!

My sweet girls are growing up so fast!
Madison is a sophomore this year and as you can see... 
drop dead gorgeous!

Where did the years go?

Last year we began school with braces and look at her this year!

Bailey was excited for her first day of 2nd Grade!
 Her teacher, Mrs. Sutton said she had a terrific day!
No tears!!!

 Of course I had to be that mom...
Yes, that sneaks a few pics in the classroom!

Bailey is loosing her little baby features and turning into a little girl.
Before long...she'll be a snaggle tooth missing her front teeth.

Praying for all students and teachers for a successful and fun school year!

 On Thursday, we ran to Walmart to pick up a few things for Bailey's party.
While I shopped I let them grab some lunch at Subway and later I came up on 
them like this.
What was I thinking????

Bailey was so excited about her little party!
She asked every 30 minutes, "How much longer before everyone comes?"
So we pretty much had a countdown for her party!

 The kids played and jumped on the trampoline.

 Madison joined them!

 After we ate hot dogs Bailey was ready to open her present!

 She got some great gifts!
Grandma Sandra bought her these Lilly and Laura bracelets so she
could be like her Mommy & Sissy.
