I have a 4 year old...

I still am in shock that I have a 4 year old. I can not believe it has been 4 years since she was living inside of my belly, kicking away. Can not believe it has been 4 years of being a mommy. It has been the best 4 years of my life and she did nothing but make life better for Ryan and I. She is the best little daughter we could ever ask for! How did we ever get so lucky? Thank you Jesus!

We celebrated the birthday girl on her actual birthday, February 25th. She woke up to singing and a birthday doughnut with candles. She got a new monogrammed lunch box and some PlayMobil toys. We ventured to out Saturday traditional breakfast, she chose Chickfila.

At noon, we celebrated our girl with all of her friends and family whom we are so thankful for at Mae's gymnastics gym, Head over Heals. Her coach is phenomenal and truly loves Mae! We had friends from school, church, and the neighborhood. The kids had an obstacle course, got to jump around, and do a zipline. We ate pizza, cookies, ice cream, and cupcakes. We sang and opened gifts. We had a blast and are so thankful for all who made it special!



We all napped after the party and then Nonna and K-Pa came over to bring their gifts. Mae got a new tennis racket, some tennis outfits, new dress up shoes, a puzzle, and some makeup. BB and Bup spoiled her at the party with a beautiful new doll, games, and more!

After they left, we had a low key night of just the 4 of us. My favorite time. We ate dinner, watched movies with popcorn, and snuggled up all on the couch. Kissing my 4 year old that night was so surreal and emotional. God gave us the biggest blessing and it just keeps getting better! We love you K-Mae!

Gator Wedding!

It was finally wedding time for my friend Cort! We headed down Thursday morning (me, Mae, and our friend Rachel) and made it to Gainesville in time for Mexican, margaritas, and fun with the family and bridal party in our PJs! Mae loved being with the big girls (and the babies)

We had a spend the night party and I snuck a pic of my girl in on the action! 

Friday was the bridesmaids luncheon. So fun celebrating my oldest friend from childhood.

My parents, Ryan, and Maggie baby made it that afternoon. We, then headed to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner!

The girls had their FIRST hotel experience and could not have done better! Thanks to my parents. Mae joined them and Maggie joined us.

Saturday was the big day! Cort looked beautiful, the girls made it down the aisle happy, and we enjoyed the party! 

The Gator cheerleaders made an appearance (Cort is the UF cheerleading coach) My girls were in heaven!

Uncle Travis came, too!

And of course the next day:

What a wonderful weekend! We love you MR and MRS Gilchrist!
