Happy 6th Birthday Madison

Today is my "baby" girls brithday!

Madison my sweet Madison you have grown and changed SO much over the years. You are still dramatic and sensational. Caring and nurturing. Sweet and sesitive. Spunky and a little funky ;).

You are also taller, smarter, prettier, happier and girlier than ever before.

You like dresses and tea parties, manicures and pedicures, fancy hats and high heels. You like to read and love to write. You can cry on command and take care of a baby like seasoned mom.

You my dear one are PURE JOY!

Daddy and I honored and feel privledged to be your parents!!!

May you have a VERY HAPPY 6th Birthday.

All our love,
Mom & Dad

Madison's 6th Birthday -- Part 2

For the 2nd part Madison's Birthday we (I) took her for a mani/pedi.

Between the big girl tea party and the day at the "salon" this girl was in total heaven...

Ready and waiting...

A little clipping

A little foot scrub

A little warm towel treatment

Even foot massage :)

Some polish...And voila...

You've got pretty toes

Onto the finger nails

watching every stroke



Love the flowers she added

A HAPPY girl having a HAPPY Birthday.

Madison's 6th Birthday -- Part 1

To kick off Madison's 6th Birthday Celebration we decided to take her to Lady's Ann's Tea Room for a big Girl Tea Party.

Oh, it couldn't have been more perfect.

Madison is quite the girlie girl and this elegant dinning establishment truly tickled her fancy.

Take a look for yourself:

The entrance to Lady's Ann's

The nook we dined in

The Birthday Girl

So pretty in her different hats - there was a trunk of hats in the ladies room and the girls could switch as many times as they desired.

After dinner, Lady Ann and Staff were SO kind and brought the kids an Ice Cream Sundae. Madison's of course had a candle and we all sang "Happy Birthday" to her.

Sadie had a grand time as well.

And Ethan too ;)

Happy 6th Birthday sweet sweet Madison!!! You are a precious one indeed!

*disclaimer - our camera STINKS!!!*

You Might Be A Redneck If....

If your momma lets you make mud pies....

And your daddy bathes you with the yard hose

While your dog gets to bathe in the bath tub - with bubbles nonetheless. ;)

Today was the last day of school. YIPPEE!!!

To celebrate we did what we always do - HAD A PARTY!!!!!

Despite the weather we had about 20 kids attend our End of School Pool Party Bash!

We had TONS of food. Some sun, a little face painting and a LOT of fun!!

Unfortunately the battery on my camera died. So I didn't capture many pics but this will indeed be an annual event at the Garcia's. :)
