Lauren's Birthday

Saturday was Lauren's birthday and her party was supposed to be at the city park. Unfortunately, it started to rain an hour before her party and didn't let up until that night, so we had to have the party at Mazzio's here in town. It was a disappointment, but I think the kids had fun.
Here's the cake that Tiffany made. So cute and soooo yummy! Thanks, Tiffany!

She had a great day and thanks to everyone that came to the party or called to tell her Happy Birthday and Thanks, Kristy for the gift!! She got it on Saturday, we just haven't slowed down enough for her to call yet, but we will!

Happy Birthday, Lauren!

On May 23, 2003, my sweet baby girl was born at 7:35 p.m. weighing 7 lbs. 12 oz. and was 21 inches long. After only 11 and a half hours of labor, a wonderful epidural this time and one push, she was brought into this world! Nothing has been the same since! She and Jackson may fight sometimes (most of the time), but they do love each other. She is growing up to be the girly girl that I always wanted and I swear she thinks she is 26 sometimes! She loves her friends, family and horses! No, we do not have any horses, but she is convinced that she is getting one at her birthday party this year. Sorry to disappoint, but at least it is a My Little Pony themed birthday party! We love her very much and can't wait for many more birthday's to come!!
**I really wanted some pictures on here of her through the years, but I haven't set my printer/scanner up at our house yet**
This is Lauren on her birthday last year..

Our Week

New Moon Movie Poster:

Hope everyone is doing okay. I think most of us have slacked off on posting. It's so easily done considering time always seems to get by me. It has been a whirlwind the past of couple of weeks, that's for sure. In addition to the time slip, I have been uploading my pictures to my laptop at home and for some reason, the pictures aren't wanting to post to blogger. Very weird. So I have to go ahead and upload them to snapfish and copy them to my computer at work to even post...I have to admit, I am rather lazy..ha

Here is the picture of my rings. The main one in the middle is my engagement ring and if you squint and look really hard, you can see the teeny tiny thing that is considered my wedding band. So, I went and had these two bands put on each side of my existing ring. What do ya think? I likey! :)

The week started off with Lauren losing her very first tooth!

Lauren had her first real dance recital on Saturday. She had an informal one at Christmas, but this was full on with costumes and everything. It was very chaotic. She had practice everyday last week after school and on Friday was suppose to have pictures done, the photographer never showed up and the location that we were to have those done and do the dress rehersal was double booked by the mayor's office, so we got booted out. So, on Saturday morning, we had dress rehersal at 10 a.m. and then had pictures at 6 p.m. and recital at 7. Whew! I was glad for it to all be over, but sad in that it was something Lauren loves to do and she won't get to do it again until school starts in August. It was a Disney themed recital and the first song was Sebastian from The Little Mermaid singing Hot, Hot, Hot. So cute! The second song was Everybody wants to be a Cat from the Aristocats movie (not my fave). She did a GREAT job and we are very proud of her. She will turn 6 on Saturday...where has time gone? She is my baby!

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

Monday, Monday..

Hope everyone had a great mother's day! Mine was great and consisted of a nice day of relaxing, listening to the rain and I got two new rings to go on both sides of my wedding ring (pic to come later)! One from each kiddo! I have been wanting to do this for quite sometime and Daphne and Michael at Fugua's did not disappoint! Thanks Chris and my sweet children! :) Now, if only I could get rid of this cold that has been plaguing our house, I will be set!
Prayers go out to the family of Tasha Strong. She was a sweet girl that graduated the year before Chris and had an accident early Sunday morning, submerging her car in the overflow from the Saline River by the Possum Valley Road turnoff.
Hope everyone has a great week!

If anyone had wondered (Debbi, :) ) where I have been...I have been around, just not busy. Absolutely nothing has happened around the Perry household. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining...but it hurts my posting. haha
I'm glad that the school year is winding down. Lauren will have a field trip on the 14th to the Pine Bluff Nature Center (Jackson went a couple of weeks ago). I was kinda bummed about this because normally every year for decades the Kindergarten has went to the zoo and I was looking forward to going with Lauren to that. I don't know what happened, but they aren't going this year. Lauren's first official dance recital is next Saturday, the 16th and I'm ready for that! She did such a great job at the Christmas one! And then, her 6th birthday is May 23rd! Where has time gone? Jackson will be 8 in August and that is crazy to me too!
I took the kids to see Disney on Ice last Saturday. It was fun and cute, but not as good as Finding Nemo on Ice. I have never really been a Peter Pan fan and the whole second half was Peter Pan. The kids had fun and that's what mattered!! They wanted to eat at Chuck E Cheese's, but I had to draw the line somewhere, so we eat at T.G.I.Friday's! I know, bad mommy!

Hope everyone has a great week!
