and Layla is FOUR!!!!

Well hello there!!!

I have had a lot going on, thus my absence from the blog world.  Let me see if I can catch you up.  First and foremost....this sweet precious thang turned the fun ole ago of FOUR!!!!  More on that later.  She had a fab party....and four of her Oklahoma cousins surprised her with their presence!  She was in a state of pure bliss!!! 


And you already know I totaled my car and broke my ankle at this point, right?  Well, at least you should if you really read my blog.  Ahem....yes you! 

{yep.  they consider that totaled.}

Ankle still hurts like a muddafukka!!!!!  I would show ya a pic of that, but I am in need of a pedicure in a bad bad way.  So.  Moving on. 

Other happenings occurred while I was M.I.A.....like:

Layla's birthday on the 4th!

{with momma}

{with MiMi and PoPo, who came in to visit for her b-day and go with their baby girl to the podiatrist}

{with daddy}

{surprise dinner birthday song and treat!)

Layla's Under The Sea Birthday Party on the 6th.

{I made EIGHT dozen cupcakes of all varieties, to supplement the cake H.E.B. made!  Yes, eight.  Yes, with a broken ankle.  Yes, I am crazy.  I thought we already established that?}

And Monday, the 8th, marked the one year anniversary since we lost our Bumpkin.  And since it is now a Wednesday....it is only fitting that I prepare a Wordless Wednesday in her honor.  She was such a bright and rare individual.  She was able to touch so many people, so deeply....I still miss her.  And I feel blessed to have had the connection we did.
