Friday Favorites-Ebby Lee

Hey Hey Hey!

It's FRIDAY!  Hope you've had a GREAT week!  Like all Fridays, I teamed up with my girl, Andrea, to bring you some FAVORITES.  

I have one big FAVORITE today...EBBY LEE!  On this day, twelve years ago Tab and I welcomed a sweet little baby into the world.  We had absolutely NO idea what we were doing, but that bundle of joy brought so much fun and excitement to our days.  And she's still bringing it!  

I had a doctor's appointment on Monday, April 6th, 2009, and in that appointment my blood pressure had really gone up so they decided to induce me just three days later, and during that first round of the Masters on Thursday, April 9th, 2009, she was born.

I was super stressed about middle school and while everyday hasn't been a walk in the park overall she's had a great first year.  She's made some sweet, sweet friends.  She has one more tournament before her volleyball season wraps for the year and she's looking forward to 7th grade cheer beginning.

She loves going to youth group on Wednesday nights and I've loved watching her love for Jesus grow.  I'm excited to see what God has in store for this girl.

While I absolutely cherish the younger years, getting to experience these middle school years with Ebby lee are extra special.  Love hearing stories amongst friends, retelling of school events, and the jokes and humor she gets now make it even more fun.  Also shopping-shopping is WAY more fun than it used to be!  Now she's asking to go and it's hard for me to say, "no" to that request.

We can't wait to see what this twelfth year holds.  

We love you so much, Ebby Lee!

Now I'm off to celebrate this girl!  Hope you have the best weekend!  Birthday #2 is happening on Monday!
