Thirty One by LeighAnne

Friday, June 12, 2009


Yes that's right today I am 25 yrs old ( and 1461 days making me 29). Ha. Yea that's the truth TWENTY NINE. It's the last year I get to say I'm twenty something. But it's like I told my sister in law it beats the alternative. I had a pretty good day. Laura came over and we just chilled out,then I got the kids ready for VBS and we went to that. And I got such a blessing when I got there. All the kids sang to me. Which really made my day. Then Josh comes walking in the Sanctuary while we were all in there and he brought in a gigantic cake ( made by his mom) That was delicious. It was home made with home made icing. So good. And I got a bunch of Happy birthdays and a few gifts. See below

A heart shaped mirror compaque and initial bracelet ( Lindsey) a beautiful saphire and diamond bracelet ( mom - in - law) and it's all on top of my GALz ( GordoAlabamaLadies) shirt ( seceret sister). I love t-shirts. So this was perfect. I wore my inital bracelet all night. I am so thankful to everyone who made my day special.. THANKS

I also took a few more pictures tonight at VBS. The kids had a great time and it was the last night. It was rainy and stormy so we were all couped up inside but it never phased them. We had so much fun this week. I got a blessing from working with them. I was always afraid to step out of my comfort zone and voluteer to help with these things but I am so happy I decided to. I really enjoyed it.

All the grown ups and a few parents waiting upstairs while the tornado warning was in effect.

Downstairs in the Youth room. All the kids joined in just as Tyler and Devin were giving their testamonies. I am SO glad we got to hear them. They are two amazing young men.

Ace in his rain boots. While we waited downstairs.

AliPaige and Summerlyn. I use to have Miss Summerlyn in my daycare class when she was two. That really makes me feel old.

Summerlyn and Tyler Lee. Love em...

Brady was out after we went down stairs. He filled his tummy with some yummy hamburgers and crashed

Tyler harrassing Sam, and Grace laughing about something.

Well once again that is all the VBS pictures for now. But like I said I'm sure there will be more after Sunday so keep checking.

This is Ace as I was uploading the pictures. He just HAD to sit on my lap. But after 2 seconds he said he was " fweepy" sleepy. And this is what happened shortly after. He is such a sweet little man. I am going to miss these days when he no longer wants to sit in mommy's lap and cuddle. So I take advantage of it everytime I get.
