the Sowell life

the Sowell life's Friday five... 

1) {Happy Birthday Darby!} Today, little mama Darby is celebrating a birthday. Y'all head over to her blog and wish her a wonderful day!

2) {Monogram Cuteness} I realized last weekend that AC didn't have anything monogrammed. Yes, we have a little under three months before she is due to arrive, but January is so busy, and I know Feb will be, too. Anyway, AC's sweet cousin, Susanna, sent her a package and you will just love these cute bibs. This was the first time I've seen her initials or name monogrammed on anything and I fell in love with it instantly.

3) {AC's 1st Christmas Present} Our sweet friends Stephanie and Tadd sent AC her 1st Christmas present this season. It's something that we knew we would be needing, and we know that she is going to love spending time in it once she arrives! The Mr put it together once he got home last night, and it's perfect!

4) {Prayers} I'd appreciate y'all lifting up my papaw in your prayers this weekend. He will have heart surgery on Monday. I'm actually out of town visiting with him in the hospital. Of course we don't like that he is having to have this surgery, especially here at Christmas, but we are thankful for his Dr's and surgeon who believe this will fix his problem. He is 84, but he has a long life ahead of him. This picture was emailed to me by my dad Tuesday morning. He has his guitar in the hospital with him and he is playing Christmas music for everyone on his hall! 

5) {Next Week} I won't be having the link up next week. Actually the blog will probably be very quiet next week. We will be spending time with family and friends celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior. And, I hope y'all will be enjoying your time with your loved ones. So if I don't get a chance to tell you before next Wednesday...

Now, who's ready to link up?!! I appreciate y'all spreading the word more than you'll ever know!! Please stop by and visit with the other bloggers who link up. It's a great way to find new bloggers to follow! And who doesn't love comments, right? =) Enjoy your weekend, y'all! 


  1. Those bibs are adorable! I will certainly be thinking of and praying for your pawpaw.

    Enjoy your holiday! Hope you have a joyous and peaceful time with your family.

  2. I will be praying for your pawpaw! I hope for him a successful surgery and quick recovery! I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!!!

  3. Your papaw will be in my thoughts! I hope everything goes well for him. I know how hard it is during this time of year to handle illness, surgeries, etc. But I love the picture of him with the guitar! Priceless! The bibs you got are really cute, Miss Avery Claire is going to be all decked out with the cutest things!! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!!!

  4. I love monogrammed everything!

    Many good thoughts to your pawpaw.

  5. Love those bibs! Everything is better with a monogram :)

    Lifting your pawpaw and family up in prayers!

    Merry Christmas!

  6. Yea for baby gifts! Especially monogrammed ones! :)

    My PawPaw had open heart surgery about a year ago. I pray he will fight and keep his spirit positive (which it seems, with him playing guitar!) I alsopray that his docs know what to do to help ease pain, and help to heal him. Tough time for such a large operation.

    Enjoy your time with family my friend. Merry Christmas!!

  7. Your Pawpaw and his guitar are too cute! I bet everyone else in the hospital at Christmastime is so thankful for his music! I hope everything goes well with him and Merry Christmas to you!

  8. Love Avery Claire's monogram bibs. I love anything monogrammed! Merry Christmas!!
