When I want to eat dinner.....this is what happens!!!

The best part...I got to eat & enjoy my dinner!

Just Like G-Pa.....

Grandpa has a lift for his toys....and Kaylie has a lift for hers!

1st Birthday

I'm a terrible mother....I was too busy doing other things to take pictures...But here is what I have from her party.

We had the party at a local park, which turned out to be a perfect location. It was a polka dot theme....Kaylie looked so pretty!

My friend Sara gave Kaylie this Birthday crown- I thought it was adorable and plan on having K wear it every birthday from here on out! (and if she won't, I will!!!)
After the food, we had a pinata....some kids were more into than others,
but I think it was a fun idea!

My friends & mom baked all these cupcakes...thank you, glad I didn't have to do it!!!

We gave K her birthday cupcake....this was my favorite part, she studied it a bit, tasted it and then shoved the WHOLE thing into her mouth. I think she liked it!!!

This is one happy birthday girl!!!

Happy Birthday to my little girl whom I love dearly!

Oh, Happy Day!!!

I realize this may mean nothing to you, but was the greatest find for me!!! For about two months now I have not been able to find my sunglasses that I wear while I work out. I have looked everywhere, or so I thought! I had resorted to being a "supermodel" as we call it (wearing big sunglasses) while walking because I couldn't find the above beauties.....There is nothing like that perfect pair of sunglasses that fit that one necessary purpose, and not be able to find them. And then today, I changed diaper bags, and there they were in the outside pocket.....Hip Hip Horray!!! This find inspires me to exercise more now!!!!!
PS....I told you you wouldn't care! :)

April is a month full of happy birthdays in our family (both extended and immediate) Devin's is first and this year was a big one (30!!!) so we went out to BJ's to celebrate last night.
We had a great evening doing what we do best, eating!!!!

Kaylie is next (after Uncle Dave), and hers is a big one too (1!!!)

Be Careful with "I"ll NEVER" Statements

I said a few months ago that Kaylie would never have a doll and that if she did, she would never take it in public....well I'm currently eating my words. My aunts gave Kaylie this doll for her birthday and she won't put it down. She hugs her, talks non-stop to her and kisses her. It is very precious.
I also said I would never have a mini-van....I sure hope I don't eat those words too!

Disclaimer- sad post today!

My grandma passed away this week.

It was a rough week, but we are glad she is no longer suffering. Life will sure be different without her & I miss her already.

My grandma was one of the nicest lady I knew. I don't remember one time in my life that I heard her say something mean about another person. She was moral almost to a fault. She was a woman of few words, but ment everything she said. I enjoyed her being so close the last few years and being able to spend time with her.

She loved Kaylie and had a very special relationship with my baby over the past year. I'm glad to always have the memories of great- grandma and Kaylie.

I am looking foward to seeing her again one day!
