    I'm so happy Adam is doing so well at school!

  9. What a sweet LO! And look at all your loot! Wow,that is so awesome!
    sending love, and thanks again for all of your sweet comments this past week. I appreciate them & you! xoxox

  10. Awesome post...your kiddies are so adorable!! Glad Adam is adjusting to HS...sometimes that's all the change they need to get their mojo back!! He'll be great!! Brookie is so freakin cute!! SCORE with all of those scrumptious goodies...let the fun begin!!

  11. Excellent happy mail, that turtle is so cute! And I just love the heart on Brookie's face, she's just so full of love it shows everywhere!

  12. Your LO is just PERFECT!!!! Filled with so much LOVE!!!! hot the Mother Load in Happy Mail!!! Brookie is so cute with her smile!!!! Wishing you a fabulous day sweet friend!!! :)

  13. Oh my gosh... I am lovin' that Norma pointed out the heart on Brookie's face! It's totally a HEART! Soooooooo CUTE!!!!! And yes, she makes the perfect princess tomboy! My guess is that she leans more on the princess side than the tomboy side though! :-)

    YAY for Adam having a great first week in middle school. I remember the summer before high school making a conscious decision to NOT be shy anymore. And from that moment on, things were different for me. He's a sweetie... he'll be just fine! :-)

    YAY for HAPPY MAIL! Bryn used to smile like that when she was about the same age. Every time I'd ask her to smile, she'd give me this cheesy toothy grin & I'd hear, "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" I guess when she heard people say, "Cheese!" to the camera, she thought it was EEEEEE! LOL! Funny memories! :-)

    Hope you're having a good day! :-)

    Hugs ♥...
