Taegan graduated....

from Pre-k that is! I can't believe time has gone by so fast and my sweet baby girl has graduated from Pre-k and will be going to Kindergarten next year. Before we know it she will be graduating from high school! Wow...I don't even want to think about that one...I can't even drive by the Kindergarten campus without getting a lump in my throat! The past five years have been such a blessing and I can't wait to see what her future holds!

The graduates entered the gym not sure of all of the mommys and daddys and grandparents watching them. We had been telling them all week that lots of people were going to come see them graduate and they were so excited, but once the night came they weren't so sure what to think!

They sang several songs that they had learned throughout the year. Here they are singing "I'm in the Lord's Army"...they did a great job!

Each graduate was given a character award that reflected them throughout the year. Taegan received the "Most Gentle Spirit" award. I thought this was very fitting for her sweet little personality.

Tae was so proud to go up and receive her diploma and devotional book from Mrs. Debi!

Taegan LOVED her teacher! Mrs. LeeAnn was so great with her and made everyday so much fun! Thank you Mrs. LeeAnn for loving my sweet girl!

Cullen and Taegan after graduation. They are excited that summer has officially arrived and are ready to take on the world!

Taegan is a proud graduate of First Kids Day School!

Mother's Day...

was the PERFECT day!

I started out my day by Taegan and her sweet Daddy bringing in these beautiful roses and sweet card while I was getting ready for church. I LOVE the card because it has a recording of my sweet girl telling me "Happy Mother's Day" and "We love you"...I love to hear her sweet little voice!

After church we headed to Arlington to watch the Rangers play. I love going to the ballgame...I just love the atmosphere, the food and the people watching! I especially LOVE going with my two favorite people!

We didn't make it through the whole game because Tae got a little bored with it, so we headed home. On the way home we stopped in Terrell for a little shopping which is always fun! I think riding the mini carousel was Tae's favorite part of the day!

It was a wonderful day and I LOVED every minute of it! Thank you God for for choosing me to be Taegan's mommy! She is "my sweet blessing"!

Taegan had a party!

On Saturday Taegan had a birthday party! She was so excited! She invited all her girlfriends from school. She was so excited Saturday morning when she woke up! We got everything ready and got all of the balloons blown up and soon it was time for everyone to arrive. She was so sweet as everyone started getting to the house she would squeal with excitement and them introduce them to her daddy. the introductions made her daddy very proud! Once everyone arrived we got the party started we painted fingernails, we opened presents, we had cake and ice cream and then headed outside for the pinata. The girls were all so cute giving it their all trying to get it busted and success finally happened as the candy started reining down! They all then headed up to Tae's room to play. Taegan had a great time and was sad to see everyone leave! It has been a great few days celebrating with our sweet girl!

My baby turned 5!

Five years ago God blessed us with one of the most precious gifts we have ever received....our sweet Taegan Faith! I cannot believe how fast the past 5 years have gone. Taegan has been such a blessing in our lives. She is so fun and full of life! She loves everything girly and is full of sass! I cannot even begin to imagine life without her. I thank God every night for choosing me to be her mommy!

On Taegan's birthday we had school. That day at school we were going visit the Kindergarten campus for a tour and to register her for kindergarten next year. I can't believe she will be starting school next year! I know she will love it I am just not sure what I am going to do without my little sidekick. She goes everywhere with me!

While at school that day my sweet friend Leslie was having her baby! It was such a great day celebrating Tae's birthday and then getting the message that Nellie Grace Bunt had been born! Leslie has two precious boys who have been in previous blogs and a third boy would have been just as sweet, but oh how exciting it is that there is now a baby girl in the Bunt family!

So after leaving school we headed home to get daddy and then we headed to the hospital to meet Miss Nellie Grace! She is precious! Her mommy and daddy were beaming form ear to ear when we got there and I think still in shock that they had a girl! After a short visit with them we headed to Build a Bear, one of Taegan's favorite places. She picked out a princess pony that she later named Chloe Rockstar! Before leaving the mall we stopped for a quick cookie break before heading to dinner...yes we had a cookie before dinner it was her birthday! We then headed to dinner to meet some our dear friends the Terrys. We enjoyed a yummy dinner and then headed home...all exhausted! It was a great day of celebrations!

Celebrating with Friends

My precious girl had a birthday last week and one of my most precious friends, Leslie, had a baby! Taegan's birthday and baby Bunt were two very exciting events happening on Thursday, April 29th. Since Leslie and her boys were going to be a little busy on Tae's actual birthday we decided to have lunch the day before. We met at the grill to celebrate Tae's birthday and chat about the new sweet baby they would be having...would it be a boy or girl?!? Taegan loves Cullen and Grayson and it is always so sweet to see them together! We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and good conversation!

A tour of the town

The theme for the month of April at Taegan's preschool was "My Town". On two different days the she got to explore "her town" with her friends. The first day we walked to The Donut Palace where they got to see where and how the donuts were made. After seeing how the donuts were made they got to make their own chocolate donut! After a chocolate donut and some chocolate milk we headed to the library where they had a story time and time to explore the library.

On the second day of exploring we headed to the cleaners where they got to see how the clothes are washed, pressed aand packaged for pick up. After the cleaners we headed over to Brookshires grocery store. While at the grocery store they got to explore the bakery, the BIG cooler and freezer, they even got to see how the meat is cut and packaged. Our final stop was Pizza Inn where they got to make their own pizza and have ice cream!

A fun time was had by all getting to see and do things that we aren't usually able to do!
