Happy Bday Mamaw

Yesterday we celebrated Mamaw(Riley's Great, Great Grandmother)'s 90th birthday. Mamaw may not be as spry as she once was, and her memory may not be too good, but one thing never changes, she's full of love. She used to keep Gerard(Gerd) after school and he was her "young en" now Riley holds that prestigious title, "Mamaw's young en". I am so happy Riley is able to know her. She has seen and done so many things in her lifetime. Just being near Mamaw brings a smile to my face, she accepted me into the family with open arms and has always treated me like one of her own, and since none of my grandparents are living, I relished having a her in my life. I am including pictures, one with all 5 generations! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMAW! WE LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!

Liley's Mama

Riley is getting so big and smart. She does new things/says new words almost everyday. We are so proud of her! Her newest thing(which she absolutely loves to do)is to point to everyone in the room and say there name. "mama, daddy, kiki, etc." We do this over and over. Today she pointed to Gerard and said "Daddy". Then pointed to cousin Brandon(who she calls Bla) and said "Bla". I said what is your name to which she answered "Liley"( Even though she knows her alphabet and knows that her name starts with R, she still refers to herself as Liley.) She pointed to me and said "Mama". I asked her what's Mama's name? I think it caught her off guard, isn't your name mama? She thought about it for a minute and then EUREKA, she looked at me so matter a fact and said, Liley's Mama. It was precious and at school the kids,teachers, and other parents do call me Riley's Mom. I'm sure every parent goes through a time when they loose their identity. We are no longer(insert your name) we become (insert your child's name)'s Mama/Daddy. But I know there will come a day, and it won't be long, when I will no longer be called Riley's Mama because she will be grown, so for now, I will cherish each time someone calls me Riley/Liley's Mama.

Fun at the fair

Thanks to Granddaddy James, we had tickets to the State Fair of Louisiana, so we took Riley to the fair(her first time). She LOVED it! She loved the food, seeing the animals, and riding the rides. I wanted to ride the elephant, but she was a little too scared, maybe next year. I haven't posted in awhile so I thought I'd share pictures from the fair. Enjoy!

Clowning Around

I hope that everyone, had a happy Halloween. I just wanted to share pictures of the cutest clown ever! We had a birthday party, and NO nap, so putting on the make-up and spraying the red hair was a challenge, but well worth it. She was a little grumpy and didn't want her picture taken so I don't have a lot, but I wanted to share the pictures I did get. ENJOY!
