While the cat's away...

Last night Eric and Abby were out on a dinner and movie date...which left the house really really quiet, ha! However, it got even quieter when the rest of us dolled up and headed out on our own date with the Godwin family...or at least some of them! A great night at the Mellow Mushroom with some great friends...and somehow, we ended up at the "rowdy table" again, ha!

8 Rules For Dating My Daughter(s)

Rule Number 1: Remember I loved her first.

Rules Number 2-8: See Rule Number 1.

(Abby and Daddy getting ready for their big Date Night...dinner and a movie...Cars 2! She's been talking all week about it and today was about to explode waiting for tonight to happen! She loves her dates with Daddy!)

Summer lovin'

If there's one thing that Abby loves in the summer time (besides pool, beaches, pedicures and golf) it's popsicles! And for the first time, she shared this love with her sisters. Blaire and Reagan were just too funny today with their orange popsicles. Blaire gobbled her's right up - at least after she realized which end to put in her mouth! Reagan loved the popsicle - but wanted nothing to do with holding it. She flat out refused to hold it; it was hysterical. But one thing was for sure with all three girls - the LOVE the fun of getting messy with popsicles!

Picture this...(coming soon!)

Today we had one of our best friends come over to the house and take the twins "ONE YEAR" photos. It was not only a blast - we've gotten a sneak peak at the first few pics and they are AWESOME! Once we get all of them, we'll be sharing so don't worry....but honestly, some of the best pics I've ever had taken! Oh, and Abby got involved too! She picked out her own outfit for some of the pics (and you'll crack up laughing when you see what she chose!) and looked stunning in the second outfit! Such a great day! Thanks Alex for your rock star job! And if anyone reading this is looking for a local (Enterprise, AL) photographer - I've got just the gal for you...give me a call and I'll hook you up!

Girls, girls, girls

"Diamonds are pretty, and so are pearls...but there's nothing more gorgeous than me and my girls."

Today was a girls only kind of day at the Wade house. We invited some of our best girls over set up manicures and pedicures, hair styles, make up and dress up! It was so much fun! A big shout out and thanks to Andrea for coming over to do nails, and Courtney for coming over to watch the twins while the fun was going on. All together there were 10 kiddos here and 6 adults having a wonderful day full of girl time! (And Blaire and Reagan getting their 1st pedicures!!!! Woo Hoo!)

Happy Independence Day

Happy Fourth of July from the Wades! Our day is going to include arts-n-crafts, golf, a pool party and a family dinner at Eric's parents...a great way to celebrate! Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!

"This, then, is the state of the union: free and restless, growing and full of hope. So it was in the beginning. So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith."

BAR BEE QUE!!!!!!!

We're getting more day until the fourth of July! And in true form and fashion, our family celebrates big days not once, but (at least) twice! A couple of weeks ago we got the invite (yep, this time we waited for the actual invite and didn't barge in...ok, well, maybe we did, LOL) and immediately said yes to the Harlin family BBQ. And if you've never gotten the invite to one of those meals, well, all I can say is that you are missing out! The food is awesome, the company is even better and without a doubt you will leave with your bellies full, smiles on your faces and a great story to share until the next meal! My top 5 things about today's BBQ include:

(1) What ever you do, when Glen says "hold this"...don't. Or wear an apron. LOL!
(2) Nothing ends a good party like a 4 year old in the back of a police cruiser.
(3) Every BBQ needs Cheese Puffs. Period.
(4) Extension cords could probably bring world peace.
(5) Don't forget your teeth when going to a BBQ.

Little Miss Adelei

About 8:50 PM on June 30th, little Adelei Jane Altgilbers came into the world...congrats to her proud parents - Jamie & Aaron Altgilbers. We've known Jamie for years, as both a church member at Providence & as a friend. Today I (Barbara) headed up to the hospital to hold sweet little Adelei & it was so wonderful! She is absolutely precious & adorable! She is a bit of a chunk (weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces at birth) but was just perfect! Congrats again to the new Mommy & Daddy - & all of the extended yall!

Goodbye for now - not forever

We've been dreading this day around our's the day we went to KK's going away party at the office. Since one of the attorneys at Barbara's office recently retired, his secretary (Kay - also known as KK around here to the girls) has been closing out files and preparing to leave herself. We were sad that she had to go, but we weren't going to let her leave without a bang! A bunch of us got together and planned a big celebration. We had a shrimp boil (thanks Gary!), all the sides, chocolate fudge cake and presents! Thanks KK for being such a special part in our lives - and not just at the office! Your girls will miss you!
