How in the world is that possible? My baby has grown too fast! I feel like I have blinked and she is a little person and not my baby anymore. This birthday was very bittersweet for me. Channing is the absolute most precious thing God has ever given us. I am amazed and honored every day that we GET to be her parents. She has brought unimaginable joy to our lives!
This year she really understood it was her birthday and really got excited about the party and the bounce house and all the hoopla! Three was also the birthday we had finally decided to take away her pacifier... I know it may seem late for some but I am a true believer that you have your own opinions about what kiddos need and don't need. Channing potty trained herself a long time ago and stopped taking bottles LONG before that... I just couldn't bare to take her 'puggy' away. But, we talked to her about it for a long time before last weekend and she knew that she was 'giving' them away to other babies that needed them more than she did because she was going to be a BIG girl. Friday night was her last night with it... and you know what... she has done AWESOME just like every other time I was nervous about taking something away or changing something. She hasn't fussed for it and the few times she has asked about it I re-explain where they went and she is totally ok with it.

She took cupcakes to school with her Friday to celebrate with her CCDC class! She was PUMPED!
So fun to see her so excited about it all!
I have actual camera pictures from her birthday party on the camera and I will try to post those this week... We had a DORA bounce house in the drizzly weather and she never knew that anything (like the weather) wasn't great for her party! LOVE that about kiddos! As far as she was concerned it was her best party ever! 

I wanted to post a picture of the Printstagram pictures I had done. My goal is to eventually get them in matching frames but that will come with time :) so for now they are on the fridge!

The party table set up before the food was actually there. 

The pictures are sory of out of order... I think this was Friday night hanging out on the couch before bed... love those tiny feet!

After party warming up playtime in the bath!

Sunday morning we finally put our membership at the Perot Museum to good use!
Channing had a blast and loved everything about it. The kid area is GREAT and so fun for them!

Rock climbing in a tutu is totally OK!

Replica of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in Dallas!
Sunday evening we went to Kirk and Nikki's wedding. Kirk was the best man in our wedding and i was so fun to see him marry the love of his life! They really are truly in love. Chandler was in the wedding and looked so handsome in the tux! It is always fun to dress up for special occasions!
It was a small wedding at Kirk's parents house in Dallas and wow was it beautiful! 

Channing and the main man!

Tyler (chandler's brother) and Kirk

True Love
not a dry eye in the house

Channing was convinced that their wedding cake was her birthday cake! Sunday was her actual third birthday so we just went along with it! She was asking where the candles were though!

My sweet family!

Making friends wherever she goes!

So a little funny... saw this on instagram last night and it made me laugh!

Todays outfit... why is it freezing at the end of March? Because we live in Texas thats why.

This weekend was full and busy but oh so much fun!
We had our first out of town visitors in the new house! Ife and Bari came in from Houston and The Gallway's came in from Abilene! Channing was SO pumped that Ty was there to play! She became the needy girl on Saturday morning asking Ty to help her put her shoes on hahaha OH NO!

She insisted she didn't need a nap Saturday and once we got in thecar to run to a store she was out!
She just idn't want to miss any of the action!

Shelby and Sloan drove over from Ft Worth to meet us for dinner at Meso Maya! Channing also LOVES Sloan and talks about her all the time!

And thanks to Bari and Ife Channing has little Havaianas!
They are SO stinking cute!

Both Shelby and Tami are having their second babies in about 6 weeks and both ar having boys so we hosted a baby sprinkle for them! It was lots of fun and we had a great crowd! Oh how I just love the tiny baby things! Makes me sad though to see how fast our kiddos have grown already!

 They ran back and forth in the backyard for a while and then we looked out to check on them and they had got the pooper scooper out and were working as a team picking up dog poo... GREAT!
Channing's dress went straight to the laundry room to be treated and washed.... TWICE haha.
Wow.... something I thought I wouldn't ever say... 'Hey guys, stop scooping poop'!

After everyone left and post poo scooping Channing sat on the couch to watch some TV and relax... she was falling asleep sitting up and I asked her if she wanted a pillow and a blanket to lay down and she said 'NO, IM NOT TIRED'!

Oh really sweet girl... this is how I found her a few minutes later.... she fell over like this so I just covered her up and let her sleep! 

Keridon and Brielle also came in for the sprinkle this weekend! We love this pic because she is already taller than me and was wearing heels and I was wearing flats.... too funny!

Kiddos at the shower... Channing insisted they all hold hands haha!

Hanging on my back... 'Hey Momma, take our picture'!

And believe it or not but after all the craziness I got a great nights sleep and feel reasted this morning!

I do have a few prayer requests.
- a very sweet friend with cancer just needs prayers for peace and comfort. his family and fiance as well.
- one of my best friends mom and cousin who's car was hit by a drunk driver last night (they are ok but very bruised and banged up... the car is totaled.)
- Channing has a lump on the back of one of her knees. Hoping it is a cyst but taking her into the doctor today just to check it out...
Philippians 4:6-7
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 my world have been nutso to say the least...
we are now in our new house and loving it... we started moving in last Thursday and since then we are pretty much unpacked... chandler went out of town all week on business and we have company this weekend. So, I have been told I am CRAZY for scheduling something this soon but oh well!
I think we've done pretty well in one week!
also, one of our best friends got married to another one of our best friends brother last Saturday and we had so much fun at the wedding! I am also thankful that I was able to find the dress I wanted to wear in the midst of a bazillionmillion boxes!

In other news Rachel Zoe started back up last week!! Made my week... for real!

the coffee maker moving from my in-laws to the new house... yes, that puppy is very valuable to me in the mornings so I strapped it in the car seat!

Lets talk about my angel child for a moment. Seriously during this whole moving from in-laws to new house sh has been AMAZING  and been so happy and easy going! I just had to get her donuts the other morning... as you can see she barely fit with all the clothes....

Us before the wedding the other night... 

My girl friends! I wish I has gotten a full length picture! My dress is Haute Hippie I found at a consignment shop! My necklace is vintage from an estate sale! I ended up wearing my Sole Society pink and red heels and loved them with it! 

We finally got the dogs back from my parents! HUGE thanks to them for hosting their grand-pups while we have been crazy these last few months!
Channing was SO happy to have them back!!

Sneak peak of the gallery wall!

Channy lou took a bath in my tub last night... It has officially been taken over... I don't mind!
