What? Did I miss something?

Oh my...dear friends I discovered something today that made me sad.  I have missed several holidays and I can't believe how far behind I am.  I have missed July 4th.  I have missed Labor Day.  I have missed Halloween and even Thanksgiving!  Do you know what?  I am behind on my shopping because according to Hobby Lobby....
Darbee and I were walking thru Hobby Lobby today minding our own business and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this...

Oh yea...there were several aisles of it!  Gah!  How crazy!  Not yet....let me enjoy my summer first please...I mean...I could let it pass if it were pumpkins or fall leaves but CHRISTMAS???  Wow.... a good chuckle and just had to share with you all.  
Might as well leave it out all year!

Today was the last day of cheer camp for Darbee Rae.  She was totally excited this morning because the parents got to come and watch them perform.

She was excited about her new outfit, so of course we had to take a picture.

All I have heard all week is about the bows the big girls wear in their hair.  Darbee loved them.  So...I surprised her yesterday and took her in Michael's and let her pick out some paint and ribbon.  We came home and this mama got busy and made one.  Yes...I had one happy little girl.

Here's the final product.  It matched her shirt perfectly today.

Nana came and she and I went to watch them perform.  It was the cutest thing ever.

I was so happy to see her laughing and having such a good time.  They had changed all of their shirts and put them in matching cheer camp shirts.  They had also put matching bows in all of their hair!  It was so cute.  

They were waiting for their turn to perform and watching the "big girls."

They called them up by grade level, so pre-k got to go first!
I love it...all of their shirts were bigger than they were!  Smile...

They looked so tiny out there!

"Go go go...go blue!"  

They did a quick dance/cheer routine to music to.  It was adorable.

Yes...I got it all on video too!

Darbee said this was her "favorite big girl."

She had to show off her shirt.  
Love them...

And her official "big girl bow."

She even got a cougar backpack!

It was so cute.  I am so proud of her.  She was such a big girl and she has already told me she can't wait to go back next year!  Yay!

We went out to lunch with Nana afterward and did a little shopping.  A good day...

Until next time...


  1. Morning
    Wow that is even early for me
    I have started some pumpkin things but wow!
    Darbee is so cute. How exciting for her.
    Hugs to you

  2. Such a fun day. Was so proud of my Darbee Rae. Wow,, Christmas already? Will have to check it out later today. Got to go in there for felt.
    Love you

  3. Yikes! Christmas! No thanks!

    Darbee Rae looked like she was having a blast!

  4. I'm certainly not ready to see Christmas!
    What a fun experience for Darbee Rae - she is adorable.


  5. My sister and I were in our Hobby Lobby yesterday and we couldn't believe it when we saw the Christmas stuff. A wee bit too early for that!!
    Darbee looked liked she had so much fun! Thanks for sharing this with brings back wonderful memories to me of when my granddaughter was a wee little cheerleader. How fun!!

  6. OMG say it is not so....rushing the seasons...the girls looked like they much fun! Thans for sharing the pics. Have a great weekend. Take care, Janice ps. maybe Hobby Lobby wants everyone to put up 4th of July trees this year. LOL

  7. So glad Darbee had such a good time with the "big girls." I bet they loved her to pieces. I was 15 minutes from you on Friday and a week ago Sat. I can't even think about Christmas. Just can't. We had a great beach trip, but was glad to be home.

  8. seems they put out Christmas stuff earlier and earlier each year! I'm hoping to start my shopping early this year, maybe August. I don't want to have to be out with Declan at such a young age and colds and flu season running rampant!

    Darbee Rae looks so cute! You did a great job on the ribbon! :)
