Happy Birthday Baby Girl!!

Ava turned 3 today! I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. Where does the time go? She had a sweet "Princess Brunch" today with 3 of her little friends. They all dressed up in their best dresses and had brunch, made flowers, made necklaces, opened presents, had lunch, and then cake. It was such a sweet cake! I loved the way it looked. Here are some pictures from the day...

My New Hobby!?!

Ryan has 3 employees at work that are having babies. Yes 3 out of 15 employees, I sure hope there isn't something in the water!! Anyway I wanted a fun gift, unique yet still usable. So I decided on diaper cakes! I did some research and found some "how-to" videos online. Well surprisingly enough they aren't really that hard and actually a lot of fun to make. I even tackled the "washcloth lollipops". I was quite pleased with the turn out and just had to share.

The babies are all boys, but I didn't want the cakes all the same, so I chose a blue one, a yellow one, and a orange one.

This one is my favorite. I just love the way it looks!

The Graduate

Well as hard as it is to believe, my baby just graduated from Kindergarten! I can't believe it. It was a wonderful ceremony and very entertaining thanks to Blake! Did you know that diplomas make great telescopes? And if you concentrate hard enough your tassels on your hat will fit into the diploma as well. One looks great with the diploma stuck to the side of their head! Oh and I can't forget to mention, ties on shirts conduct music wonderfully and are such a fashion statement when tucked under your arm! Yes, it was quite a night! Enjoy some picutures...

This would be the picture of Blake trying to get his tassel in the diploma. I just noticed when downloading this picture that the little girl beside Blake is doing the same thing. Okay so who started it first?!?!?

The happy graduate and his bubbles from his teacher.

This is a picture of Blake and his teacher Mrs. Boyd. One of the best teachers in the world!!

Happy Mother's Day

Okay so I am a day late! But right now in my life, that is still pretty good. I thought I would share with you what I received for my gift. I got a hammock!! I have always wanted a hammock and now I finally have one. They are so cool! I can't wait to get the chance to "relax" in it again. I put the term "relax" in quotes because it really isn't relaxing especially when Blake and Ava are around. I laid on the hammock and the fighting began. "It's my turn" "No, it's not it's MY turn" "Mommy, let me up" "No I want to lay there" "MMMMOOOOOMMMYYY!!!" See what I mean, oh well, it is still nice despite the arguing.

My new hammock!

The Early Birthday Gift

Well Blake finally got his wish, well sort of. He has been begging us for a four wheeler for his birthday. Those things are not cheap! Ryan was sent on a mission for lunch the other day and found the "perfect" gift. There it was sitting at a garage sale! Although it wasn't a four wheeler Blake still fell in love with it and just had to have it. It needs a little work, but other than that I think it will work out great for him. I have a feeling I will be praying harder than I ever have this summer.
