My Christmas Baby Emmy....

So today sweet Emmy turned 6 years old. Sorry no pictures:( We had a great day. We started out by going to the library and checking out some books. Then made Emmy's favorite tuna sandwiches ;) Once Albert got home we had a fab dinner at Olive Garden and they sang happy birthday to our sweet girl. They brought out a great cake then she opened gifts at home. What a great day to celebrate our sweet girl!!!!! Emmy we love your crazy laugh, your voice, your silly personality and everything else about you!

Christmas and Texans.....

On Friday I was able to attend Mya and Emmy's Christmas parties. It was sooo much fun!

So we got some Texans shirts for the babes for Christmas but daddy pulled them out today (he can't help himself).

Is she not the cutest Texan ever!

We made a mad rush trip to Target today for stockings. I guess I lost some during the move. We have one for our dog Lucy and two extra ones. My mom and dad of course!!!I can't wait to fill theirs with lottery tickets and denture cream HA!!I love those guys!!
Have a great Sunday friends!!

Sweet friends I have not blogged in forever ~~I have been sooo busy like I'm sure you guys are too. This is a very vain post (sorry). I just had to post some of my favorite things. This Deborah Lippmann polish (glamorous life) will arrive today.

My sweet hubs got me some Pandora charms for our anniversary with the babes birth stones. So sweet of him.

My sweet friend Jess told me about this amazing foundation that she loves. It is I must say totally FAB!!

One of our sweet residents at work loves makeup and told me about these Laura Mercier baked eye shadows ( I love them so)!!!

In the fall I always buy Brighton's Laugh perfume. It is a perfect blend of awesomeness!!

Last but not least my hubs is over the moon for the TEXANS going to the playoffs. YAY H-Town!!!
Hope your Wednesday is full of blessings and laughter!!!
