This weekend is always so special to me for many reasons!! For the past few years, it's special to me because I am now a mother and know the love and joy I get from being a mother to my sweet angel!! It's also special to me because B and I both have birthday's that split Mother's Day and my sister and her precious husband share their anniversary as well on this weekend. It doesn't get much better than that!! We celebrated B's birthday on Thursday with his mom, we celebrated our birthdays and the Barrow's anniversary on Friday night with my entire family, and we celebrated Mother's Day on Sunday with his Mom for lunch and my family for dinner. B suprised me saturday and took me to Birmingham to eat at my favorite place, The Village Tavern for my birthday/mother's day and it was so nice to have a date with him. Every year around this time I stop and count my many blessings which I should do way more often than I do but with all of us being on the go so much, it's easy to forget to do it!! I am so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life and I thank God for them daily!!! I couldn't be happier than I am in this very moment!!! It was an amazing weekend filled with wonderful memories and one I'll never forget!!! Happy Mother's Day to all my mommy friends!!!

Swim Time!!!

Doing it all by herself

The water was still chilly
We took Addison swimming for the first time this year and we got to use her floaties!! =) Last year she was still so small that we used a big round float that she could sit in instead of floaties on her arms. This year, we are able to use the arm floaties so she can learn how to swim like a big girl. At first she wasn't too sure about it, but after daddy got in, she was all about it!! She had such a good time and I can't wait for the pool to open where we live so we can go all the time this summer. Fun times are ahead with this little angel!!

Auburn A-Day!!

We took Addison to her very first Auburn experience on Saturday for the Auburn A-Day game. We knew it may or may not be a challenge depending on how she decided to act that day but we wanted to give it a try so we did. Laura, Keith and the kids all came as well and we had a great day together as a family. We started by going to Kinnucans in Auburn to see Tommy Trott and Ben Tate and let the kids take pics with them and get autographs. They were both so nice and generous with their time. Then, we headed to find a parking place. We were afraid that would be a challenege but we actually got a great parking place that had a grassy area with shade for our picnic. We then headed to the practice field so the kids could enjoy the inflatables for a while before eating. We had a picnic in the shade and the weather was phenominal. We sat on blankets and in chairs and just laughed and had the best time. After lunch, we packed up and headed to the new Auburn Basketball Arena to take a tour and I must say, it is wonderful!! We took lots of pics so daddy could see it since he and mama could not be there. We then proceeded to the stadium to get a seat with about 20-30 minutes until kick-off. The kids were a little tired at this point but held up well throughout the day. We then left and went to get yogurt at a new place in Auburn called Tutti was FABULOUS!!! The best yogurt I have ever had....ever!! The kids loved the refreshment and so did the adults. After a little shopping at J&M, we headed home. I knew for certain that Addison would fall asleep on the drive home, but she didn't. However, she slept wonderfully that night. Addison was an angel all day and had a blast watching Aubie during the game......that was all she was interested in was Aubie......and the cheerleaders. We had the best time and I cherish ever second of ever minute we have like that as a family. Those memories are what life is all about!!

Pics to follow in another post!! God Bless you all!!

Way too long.....

It's been way to long since I posted last and alot has happened!! January was completely crazy and quite frankly a month I wouldn't mind forgetting. February was good but busy with tons of things going on from sporting events to tryouts to SNOW!!! I can not believe it snowed 2 times this year and actually stuck. Incredible!! That allowed for some fabulous family time and lots of memory making that I will NEVER forget!! Then March came......again.......very quickly I might add. March was a great month not only because of spring break, but because of a very special occasion that will now happen every March for the rest of my life!! On March 23rd, 2008 God blessed me with the most amazing miracle I could ever ask for. Addison Brooke Foxworth graced us with her presence at 12:27pm Easter Sunday.......I will never forget that day. There are lots of memories of that day....some not so fun memories but the experience of childbirth is one memory I'll never forget!! It's hard to believe that it has been 2 years since that wonderful day and oh what a joy our little princess has been. We had her 2nd birthday party at the house on March 20th with family and friends and she got more than we could have ever asked for or wanted. We took her to eat for her birthday on March 23rd with the grandparents and the Barrow's and as always she had a great time. I was on spring break the week of her birthday and got to spend every single moment with my angel and I wouldn't trade that for anything. It's those moments I cherish most. She has changed alot in 2 years so I thought I would update everyone on the world of Addison and what she's up to.

*She is talking more and putting words together to make sentences.....adorable.
*She loves the word "No"....of course.
*She says "I luh you mama" and "I luh you dada" which melts our hearts every time.
*She loves being outside....can not get enough of it.
*She adores all of her grandparents and tells them she loves them too.
*She can't get enough of her Bebe (Blakeley who is the oldest cousin and belongs to Keith and Laura)
*She calls Laura "Aunt Wawa" and Keith "Uncle KeKe"
*She loves dancing, singing, and playing with everything in sight.
*She still eats like a champ and isn't picky....the only thing she won't eat is cole slaw.
*She says her prayers every night with Mommy and Daddy and that is a moment I look forward to daily.
*She's quit the helper and puts things back where she got them from.

I could go on for days but won't bore you. She suprises us daily and I couldn't be more proud to be her Mama!! Happy Birthday Angel!!
April has been even better than expected. Easter was amazing as always and such a great reminder of all we have to be thankful for. It was a great weekend spent with family and Easter Egg hunting.
Well, that's alot so I'll stop for now.....updates coming soon.

2010 is here!!

Well, it's been crazy in the Foxworth household over the last month. Our December started out with us moving......yes, we moved in the busiest month possible. We had the new house painted, which took longer than expected but looks amazing and the painters did such a fabulous job, then we had to get everything packed onto the moving van and unpacked into the house. We also have had things in storage for a while that we had to get into the garage for me to go through and decide what we were keeping and what we were not keeping. After the week and a half that took, I had to unpack the boxes and get to decorating the new house! This process pretty much took my entire christmas vacation time to do but it was so worth it. Moving is hard work and so exhausting but I absolutely love where we are!! Other than moving, our Christmas was fabulous. We had lots of family time which is always so nice. Addison had so much fun opening her presents this year and it was a joy to watch her. She was worn out by the time we got her home that night. Our New Years Eve was uneventful but full of time with my baby and hubby which I can never get enough of. We rang in the New Year together and went to bed. 2009 was a great year for our family but it obviously had it's rocky times. God provided in those rocky times as He always does and we look forward to the great things He has in store for our family in 2010.
