Enough already

February 23, 2009

Caroline (little sister) and I are kicking it at my 9th annual Oscar Party. Anyone else take a nap during the Slumdog Millionaire lovefest? Seriously, can we let someone esle win? If they keep winning, that’ll put them in the same category as Titanic, and you know how much I loved that film. I’m starting to question why I watch the Academy Awards when I agree with 30% of the choices. Highlight of the night has to be the 2 asian guys, especially the one who dropped a “Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto.”


By the way, Jen has the last 8 consecutive posts, I had to jump back in. Jen went to Atlanta this weekend to visit the Baileys and help out with our newest cousin, Andrew. Not sure what they’re going to call him yet. I played Mr. Mom and the boys are still alive. It’s the little things.


Happy Birthday, Avery!!

No, I haven’t totally lost my mind…it is indeed another Avery’s birthday. my-birthday

The first Avery’s. My husband. My love. My friend.  He turned 30 yesterday and we had a small family celebration.  He requested a moist chocolate cake with green icing, so that’s what he got! 

It has been a wonderful year and I pray that this next year will be full of blessings and joy. You have certainly given me both in the almost 6 years we’ve been married.  Love ya, sweetie~ Happy Birthday.

Below are pics of our eldest ‘helping me’ make the cake and taste the batter!



note: this marks the last of the Mixon birthdays for the year. We unintentionally have a ‘birthday sprint’ from Dec 29-Feb 18 – containing all 4 of our birthdays.

Happy Birthday, Li’l A!!

His first birthday – he turned completely green!

I'm 2!

He’s 2!


Now he’s three and it’s just unbelievable to think he’s been on this earth for that long! Man, it has flown and we have loved every minute of it!  Happy Birthday, Avery!!

We had a train cake theme for this double birthday party with his brother this past Saturday. Both families were there as were our close friends from Tampa, the Reeds. We had a great time and Av was really excited about his train cake! The party concluded with the opening of a few presents…rocking horse, books, clothes, trains, and his ‘big boy bicycle!’  He’s no longer a toddler but a little boy now.  We love you soooooo much, puddin’ pop!
