Happy 9th birthday, Carleigh

I spent some time reflecting on the labor and delivery of my first child the other day. It really seems just like the other day when I had my first. Carleigh turned 9 on Sunday. I am struggling with how fast the time has gone by. It's too fast. A friend Kelvin works with invited us to spend the weekend with him and his wife at Sam Rayburn. He is a fishing guide there and wanted to take the kids fishing. They didn't just go fishing, they went catching! I would say Carleigh had a pretty exciting 9th birthday on the lake! We also spent some time tubing. I love hearing them squealing when Kelvin is pulling them around on the tube or knee board. FUN stuff!

Last night we had the FAM over for dinner and cake. We had a fish fry with some those of yummy fish they caught! Fresh fish...mmmmm! We devoured what Kelvin cooked. It was SO good. Carleigh wanted a beachy/luauy theme for her party, and my friend made the cutest cake.

If you recall, in November, Carleigh shot her first deer...an awesome 8 point buck. We had it mounted for her, and surprised her with it on her birthday. She was so excited. It was just precious!

She's still celebrating! She got to spend the night with Grammy and Papa. I'll pick her up in a little while. I think she had a great 9th birthday. I hope she agrees.


  1. priceless! My sister and I used to fish with my grandparents and there is nothing like fresh fish!!

  2. Awww, sounds like a great day. Happy Birthday!

  3. Andy went fishing over the weekend, too. I think he is jealous of Carleigh's mega-catches! Sounds like you all had a great weekend. So fun!

  4. Happy Birthday, Carleigh!
    What a fun day! Fishing and getting your first hunting trophy mounted! It doesn't get much better than that! Many blessings and God's love to you!
    Love and hugs and prayers,


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
