Jessica's 11th Birthday In Pictures

I'll be honest.

I just haven't been in the blogging mood lately.

I seriously had every intention to put these pictures up last Saturday, but my road of life is paved with good intentions...

So, enjoy these pictures of my growing girl.

Oh, how I do love her!

Because she got new bedding, this was the only present she actually got to open on her birthday. A new Zhu Zhu pet from BFF, Sidney. :)

She requested a cookie cake. I happily obliged. No, I didn't make it, but we enjoyed it just the same.

At her favorite restaurant, Chick-fil-A, for dinner. She has graduated from the kids meal...her favorite thing to order is a #1 with a caffeine free diet coke. If you don't know what comes on a #1, you should visit Chick-fil-A more often. Just's a sandwich, fries and a drink. She also loves to smother her fries and sandwich in their famous Polynesian sauce. I do believe her mouth was full in this picture!

My big monkey. She is getting so tall that she's not going to be able to play in here much longer. Although I'm sure she will use the excuse to look after Dumplin' when he gets old enough to climb and have fun.

Milkshakes for dessert. Cookies and cream for Jess; vanilla for EG and Sid.

We're still trying to decide when to have her slumber party...

And hang tight as I hope to play more "catch-up" this next week getting pictures up of Emma Grace's birthday. I loaded 2,000 pictures onto my computer yesterday and it makes inserting pictures on my blog much faster. I had been hooking my camera up each time and it took forever. I'm still trying to figure out this whole picture dilemma. It really is a source of frustration for me...downloading, storing, printing, organizing...NOT my strong point!

And I can't forget...Buddy turns one today. Happy Birthday Buddy! The girls are super excited to celebrate, although I'm not sure exactly how we will. I was going to cook him a little hamburger, but he went to the vet yesterday for some tummy problems. He's fine and on some medicine, but I think he will probably get some chicken instead.

Until I post again...



  1. Love you Tonya... I so enjoyed our visit on the phone yesterday:) You are such a blessing to me in so many ways... Thanks for supporting up on this crazy journey with all it's bizarre twists and turns:) I am so glad I can share them with you:)

    Praying for you... you won't like this comment:) But in that picture with EG, Sid and Jessica, I almost didn't recognize EG... so looked bigger, like one of Jessica's other friends. But her sweet smile gave her away... they are growing so fast, just like we talked about. I wll be praying for the Lord to protect all of our kids hearts as they grow up and hopefully grow in HIM:)

    Praying for ou!

  2. I loved seeing the pics of the girls! And I can't believe Buddy is a year old. Happy Birthdays all around!

    2000 photos onto your hard drive?? Girl, you're gonna need to buy some RAM, LOL. Isn't strolling down the memory lane great, though?

    Hope you're weekend's off to a great start :D
