Last night during the storm, my grandmother had 2 huge trees fall in her yard and one actually fell on the house. Luckily she managed to get away with some minor roof damage, thank goodness no one was hurt. I was just shocked when I looked out my front window this morning to see the big pecan tree down in her front yard and then I saw the other big tree on the back of the house....anyway, I had to share.

Kaylyn had her school beauty pageant tonight and she got 1st alternate and Miss Photogenic. She always has such a good time doing the beauty pageant. She loves getting dressed up and getting her hair and make-up done. This kind of thing is right up her alley. I'm so proud of her for getting on stage in front of a big crowd, this is something I could not do at 7 years old, and still can't do today. She's such a little social butterfly! (P.S. My camera just did not do very well with all of these stage lights, so I don't have very many good ones of her on stage. I'm sure the photographer got some great ones, I'll post them when I get them.)

Kaylyn decided she wanted to have a slumber party for her birthday this year, so last night we had 6 little girls at our house for the night. I never knew little girls could be so rambunctious! Let's just say, they were a little wild. They did pretty good though, I think they may have slept from 2:00 am-6:00 am, and then they were ready to go again! The last one left at about 10:00 this morning, and as much fun as I had, I'm glad to have my nice, quiet house back, which by-the-way is TOTALLY TRASHED!! Oh well, Kaylyn had a good time and was so happy it's all worth the mess and the headache I now have!

I can't believe my baby girl is 7 today. It seems like yesterday Chris and I were making the hour drive to St. Vincent's in rush hour trafic at 9:00 in the morning, in the pouring rain. Not sure if I was really in labor or if I had a stomach virus (That's another story for another time). I guess it never occured to me that I might actually be in labor 8 days early! I kept screaming at Chris that he was going to HAVE to drive faster and I even threatened to drive myself! We finally made it to the hospital at about 10:30. After being examined in the office, we were told by my Dr. that he wasn't sure if I was in labor or not (very reassuring) and he was going to send me to L and D to be observed. We couldn't get in touch with ANY of our family at this point and I was scared to death. After we got to the triage area and I was all hooked up to the monitors, my water broke about 15 minutes later (guess I really was in labor). About 2 hours later at 1:53 pm Kaylyn Brooke Chilton made her grand entrance into the world and our lives were forever changed...

This is a little project I've been working on for the past 6 months. I have had so much fun making this video. I literally went through thousands of pictures (ya'll know how I love to take pictures), and I remember every detail about every picture taken. Going through all those pictures brought back so many memories and it made me realize how fast time really does fly. Anyway, enough of my ramblings...here it is.

This is our newest baby Crimson; she is my birthday present. I have always wanted a Golden Retriever and now I finally have one. She is so sweet and cuddly. She loves for you to hug her. I think the kids have already worn her out with all of their loving! Luke has a little trouble saying her name. He calls her "Christmas" or his version of it which is "Kwismas." I think I may have finally convinced him that her name is not "Christmas." Now he calls her "Kwinsom"
