I'm 24 years old!
Here is how the big day went...
B ouquet of red roses were delivered at midnight from my friend Curtis. He wanted to give the first gift!
I enjoyed a delicious breakfast made by Lori - German pancakes.
Received a lot of texts saying Happy Birthday. I felt super special!
Talked on the phone with JanaRae, my bestie.
Heard my fans scream "Go miss Vicki" a hundred times every time I was on stage.
D itched my school class for Dress Rehearsal. My dance concert was the same week.
Ate a lot of the peanut butter/chocolate cake Lori made for me.
Yerda had a great birthday. Thanks ya'll for making me feel loved!

I never blogged Maylee's two year old birthday March 31, 2009.

aylee loves eating eggs for breakfast.
Ask Maylee a question and she'll say "I don't know" then she'll answer it right after. Interesting.
You will smile when you see the way Maylee plays with her baby dolls.
Look at Maylee's hair! It is finally growing!
Everytime we pass the hospital or hear a siren she says "my daddy's work". Smart girl!
Even though I love to snuggle with her, she is such a wild sleeper! She'll scratch, kick, talk ect.

Just in case you are wondering - Maylee is potty trained!
One time I said to Maylee "Come here little princess" and she gave me a confused look saying "I'm not a princess, I'm a monkey baby."
Yesterday I kissed Maylee and she grabbed my face with her little hands and said "I love you Mom." My heart melted. I love being a mom to this beautiful child.

I love the Dominican Republic

In April I went to the Dominican Republic with six other friends: Chris, Gina and Carson Eady, Brooke Haws, Josh Jones and Nate Dunkley. We went together to help build a home for a family there that the Eady's knew from a previous trip to the Dominican Republic. It was such a great experience! It was my first time out of the country and I fell in love with the people. We were able to gather 700lbs of school supplies to take down for a school. My testimony was strengthened of the love that Heavenly Father has for each one of us. I'm very blessed to have the gospel in my life and sometimes I take that for granted. It was great to be reminded of the importance to follow Christ and serve others. Here are my favorite pictures during our trip!
