It is hard to believe that Parker will be a year old next month! I think the things that excites me the most about him turning a year old is that he can face forward in his car seat! No more pulled arm muscles trying to hand him toys or feed a bottle. Have you ever tried 80 miles to work and keep a 11 month old happy the whole way????
So the planning has begun for Parker's birthday party. Well, pretty much the plans are complete. I ordered invitations from a friend at work. TOO CUTE! And I have ordered his birthday shirt and all of the party supplies.
Plus a I ordered him a cute shirt that says "It's This Silly Little Monkey's Birthday"! TOO CUTE!
And to top it all off....I have ordered cakes from my friend in Huntsville, Tish. I am going off of faith about what the cakes will look like, but trust me, it will be great! If you saw my cake from my baby shower in Huntsville, or if you have ever seen her work, you know it will be great. SO excited....we are having a PARTY!

Recovering from a sickness is not the way to spend a "romantic weekend". As I posted earlier, Parker and I stayed in Huntsville on Friday night so I could get some help. And just to let you know, Braxton was not just sitting at home doing nothing. He could help take care of Parker because he was helping with a church event. ChristWay showed "Fireproof" Friday night for all of the couples....so he couldn't be at home to help.
Saturday morning I tried to recover, and left my parents' house before lunch so Parker would sleep in the car. I felt horrible trying to drive home! When we got home I noticed on the kitchen table a box of chocolates and a card. No flowers, but that doesn't surprise me! Word of advice for all of the non-married gals.....never tell your boyfriend, fiancee, future husband, etc. that flowers are a waste of money. I made the mistake and I NEVER get flowers! But I did get chocolates. As soon as I walked in the door I put on my pjs and sat in my red chair! Luckily Parker was not that playful either, but Braxton was great helping with him. We spent the entire day in our pjs (seeing a trend from last weekend???), and we watched 13 episodes of LOST! Crazy, I know!
Sunday was our normal routine of church, lunch and naps! Then Sunday evening we took Parker to his Nana's for the evening and so she could keep him on President's Day since the daycare was closed. Although Braxton and I could have gone to dinner and a movie, we opted for a little free time for ourselves. He wanted to play his Playstation and I really wanted to scrapbook. And that is exactly what we did....and I finished a book! YEAH!!!
Now on to another week of work.....but I know that later part of this month is going to be GREAT! I will post later!
HARD TO BELIEVE....Parker will be 1 years old in less than month! AWWWW!!!

What a weekend! Probably one of the most productive weekends I have had all year. Hopefully I can keep up with for the rest of 2009!
Friday I worked from home while Parker traveled through the house. He does such a great job at playing by himself while I worked. Trust me...the rest of the weekend was plenty of Parker play time!!! After Braxton got home from work, we loaded up and visited the big city of Cullman!
Saturday we spent the day at the house. Before Parker was born, Braxton and I used to love to schedule a "lazy day". The only requirement for lazy days....you have to stay in your pjs all day long. And that is exactly what we did. We enjoyed playing with Parker and just spending time at the house all weekend. Kudos to me...I cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner! What a great wife and mom!
Sunday was church. And what a great service! Bro. Bryant really challenged the church. He challenged us to turn off the tv 30 minutes every day and spend those 30 minutes reading and study the Bible as a family. I know speaking for myself that it will be a challenge. Sometimes I get so caught up in my day that I do let it slip my mind. I do take the time in the mornings on my way to work to pray, but as far as actually reading what God has to say....well I need to step up the challenge! Sunday night was spent being productive. It is sad to say that I have not had the opportunity to go through some of my Christmas presents! I had 3 shopping bags of presents and hand-me-downs that needed to be "processed". AND I DID IT!!!! I was so proud of myself. Hopefully the next two weekends will be as productive.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week! If you are in the south, go out and enjoy the beautiful weather!

I have had to ask myself this question multiple times in the last few weeks. I need a break. It is not that I need a break from anything in particular, I just want to slow down a bit and soak in the beginning of 2009. Can you believe it is already February 1st! OH MY!!!
It is a little girl in a sleeping bag!
And the invitation wording is on the body of the little girl!
