Here are the red velvet cupcakes I made for Tay:
We had a candle that just wouldn't go out:
Tay has been asking for a guitar for a long time now, and we just didn't feel she was ready, until now. Here is her face when she opened her very first guitar!
And of course we have Buddy who is always the life of the party:
Tay is now 11. I hope you have enjoyed the pictures of her special day. I know she had so much fun and was thankful for all who were able to come and share her birthday with her. I think back to the first time I found out I was pregnant with Tay. I was told by the doctors that it would be difficult for me to get pregnant and not to get my hopes to high. My Husband and I had only been married one month when we found out we were expecting. So many thoughts went rushing through my head, as we were both still in college, and I was not working yet. We lived in a little apartment and we were still trying to adjust to being married. All that being said, we were both so very excited about the gift we were about to receive from God. After 48 hours of tough labor, Tay was born on May 7, 2000 at 9:30 in the evening. I remember holding her for the first time and feeling like I had been holding her my whole life. As the years have gone, Tay has been my most challenging child. She is full of life and loves to be in the spotlight, which is the complete opposite of myself. I am blessed that she is my daughter and that I am able to be with her throughout the day to watch her grow, not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. She is a wonderful little girl, now young lady and I am thankful to be her Mother. I love you Tay, Happy Birthday!
