8 is great!

 My sweet Shelby is 8.  I love her so very much.  This year she wanted a reptile party...is anyone surprised?? No.  I saw an ad for this place that does reptile parties and thought it would be perfect for her. She was in heaven! She loved every second.  We invited her whole class from school (5 kids), her neighborhood friends, her friend Dax and of course her cousins.  It was a great turnout and we all had so much fun!  I have made a blog that tells about Shelby's birth story from my journals.  I was going to print it into a book but it is not done yet.  You can check it out if you want.  www.Themiracleofshelby.blogspot.com

Snow day!

Last month when we had a snow day off of school, I thought we should take advantage of it and play outside.  the snow was higher then Chloe in most spots, but she loved it.  Shelby and Keaton played outside until they could not handle the cold anymore.
