My twins are three? Where did time go?

I can't believe our twins, Carter and Ella, are already three years old.  They are blessing from above.  After experiencing years of infertility, help to have Caden, and many nights of praying for more children......we can definitely say getting pregnant with these babies was a miracle from GOD!  Not only was I shocked to be pregnant but to be pregnant with two!  WOW, double the blessings from above.  These two have brought so much joy to our lives, we are blessed beyond belief.  It's been an adventurous journey raising twins, but I couldn't imagine it any other way.  Ella, is the little girl I always dreamed of.  Her big blues eyes melt her daddy's heart and her sweet smile melts mine.  She's beautiful and everything we could have hoped for and more.  Then there's Carter, funnier than just about anyone I know.  He keeps us laughing and at a loss for words.  His big brown eyes make him a handsome little guy.  I just don't have the words to tell you how much love I have in my heart for this fellow.  Together, they are perfect, unique and the loves of our life.....along with their big brother Caden.  His post is coming!

To my twins....Carter and Ella.
Happy 3rd Birthday!  You'll never know how much happiness you two have brought to our family.  You have already taught us some many wonderful things.  We thank GOD everyday for bringing you two into our lives at the same time.  I always dreamed of twins, but never could I have imagined I would get twins as perfect as you two!  You'll always be my babies and I'll always love you both with all my heart and soul!

This is their awesome cake.....Carter couldn't keep his hands out of it.
Dora/Diego...perfect theme for boy/girl twins!

My 33rd Birthday!

WOW!  Is all I can say about my 33rd birthday!  I had a really awesome day.  Woke up to a really sweet card and birthday cake left by my husband, with a note of a scheduled massage at 12:15.  No kids....just relaxation!  Then I met my sweet friend, Lindsey, for lunch at El Mazatlan!  Yummy!  Later that night, my family met up with my mom, my sister's family plus her father-in-law, my friend Lindsey, and my other sister, Chelsea for a nice dinner at The Brickyard!  Great food.  We then came back to my house for cake and I got to open tons of presents!  I love presents!   Below are some pics of my fabulous day!  I am so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends in my life.  I know how truly lucky I am!                                                                   This is the place we celebrated my 33rd birthday......yummy food!  I would recommend!

Also, I got a new camera from my mother in law, Donna!  Thanks Donna!  Now I can post pics more often!

Fireworks, Family, and Fun

We had a really good 4th of July, considering our plans were cancelled.  Our family, my sister's family and my mom were planning to go see the Bowling Green Hot Rods play some baseball and watch the fireworks after the game.  However, it started raining as soon as we stepped out of the car and pretty much continued the rest of the night.  So, we ended up at Buckhead Cafe and enjoyed a dinner together.  We then came back to our house for some dessert and Mike let all the kids light the sparklers.  The next night was much more beautiful, so we continued our plans with a cookout and some fireworks.  Great food, great fireworks, great family....what more could we ask for.

I have several pics during our rainout and the following night.....enjoy!

Ella was scared of the noise ......loved the fireworks but not the noise!  

This is Carter man lighting his sparkler.....he got a little crazy with it and burned Chase's shorts.....

Caden and friends.....or least Caden thinks so!
This was the following night.  We all got to enjoy Mike shooting off some fireworks.  The kids had a blast!
Mike was our firework MASTER.......he was determined everyone was going to light a firework on the 4th.....RAIN or SHINE.   
These were the cupcakes I got for all the kiddos from Riley's Bakery.  They loved them!
Chase in action......cute pic!
Mom and Ella before she got soooooo nasty eating her cupcake!
The adults actually got to enjoy a table of our own at dinner....
While the kids had their own table.
My little firecracker! this kid.........
He hasn't put these flags down yet.......what a handsome little fellow!
My sweet Ella in her patriotic hairbow.....Thanks Lindsey!  You help make her cuter all the time.
Last of all, thanks to of our servicemen and women who fight for our rights each and every day.  Especially, Anthony, my brother in law.  We appreciate all you do!   

We have a busy month ahead.  Four out of five of the Whittle bunch has birthdays this month.  So, you know what I'll be doing.  Planning, planning, and more planning of birthday parties.

Have a blessed day,
