My baby is not a baby anymore!

I can't believe my baby is one! Time flies! We decided to have a little get together and I took advantage of the opportunity to bake and decorate.:) I had so much fun making all the decorations and food. I think we should have parties more often . :)

I made banners for the windows. Yes I know I still need to get new curtain rods.:)

These were so easy to make and a good way to reuse tissue paper.

The cake I made for the adults. I made marshmallow fondant for the first time. It turned out pretty good but I learned a few things I will do different the next time.

The cake I made for the birthday girl.

Almost all the food all ready to go.:)

Me and my birthday girl.

She was not cooperating for picture pictures because we had just got her up from a nap.

She loves her kisses. lol

Her friend/cousin/practically sister.

So many presents to choose from!

I think she was in shock that she could rip the paper.:)

It was so funny watching her open presents. She was so careful about it.

Getting help from grandma.

You can see she is signing please in this picture. After we were done taking the picture and took the cake away she had a meltdown. lol

You can see in this picture that she had been crying.

She had to be encouraged by daddy that it really was okay to touch it.

Once she realized it was okay she went face first into the cake. :)

Catch Up

Since I don't have time to write a lot right now I will just post some snapshots from the last few months.:) I have been home with a sick little girl this week and while I have enjoyed the time with her I am really hoping she is almost over whatever she has! Poor baby.

We've seen lots of this the last two days. Poor girl!

Busy Day of Cheese.

Well, today I kept myself busy making fresh mozzarella and ricotta cheese. I have been wanting to try making it for a while and today I finally did it. I am going to tell all about it in a future post and give instructions as well!!
Right now my husband, baby L and I are at a baseball game. Baby L is fighting sleep so we are walking.:)
Happy Friday!!!

Baby Food

Today was a good Monday. It was one of those Mondays where I felt like I got a lot done. I love it when that happens! I got 3 loads of laundry done, the floors vacuumed, the bedding washed and bed re-made, house picked up, and most importantly baby food made!!  There is still more work to be done on my next day off but I feel like I have a good start on it. Yay!

Baking Butternut Squash for baby food.
One of three batches of carrots ready to freeze.
Cauliflower all ready for the freezer. These used baby food containers work perfectly!
All the food made and in the freezer. Hope to get a few more batches made on Wednesday and I should be good for quite a while!

Three Years Sure Goes Fast!!

Well, as of today my best friend and I have been married three years! I can't believe that it has been that long already! Seems like only yesterday that we were getting ready to get married.

First look...

This is one of my favorite shots from the day.:)

Love that our photographer thought to take this picture with the Bible open to our passage.

Just before the ceremony.

My dad is a pastor so we were blessed enough to have him do the service.:) It was very special.

Microwave Kettle Corn!

I came a across this recipe on pinterest the other day for homemade kettle corn in the microwave!!!!! Needless to say I am addicted! I am going to be making this a lot!

*I have been doubling the recipe and then just microwaving it for 1-2 minutes longer than suggested. just be sure to listen for the popping to slow or you will burn it. Take it from me it is easy to do.:)

Fourth of July

We had a great fourth of July! We finally got some warm sunny weather! My husband and I had a nice relaxing morning. We slept in until 9 and then cleaned the house and planted some bushes in front of our house. I was soooo glad to finally get that finished.:) Later in the day we went and played mini golf with my sister and brother-in-law. We ended the day with watching a local firework show. It was awesome! I think this is going to have to become our fourth of July tradition!

My favorite little lady playing in the grass.
My sister and her husband took their truck and we put the girls in the back with toys.:)
The girls waiting for it to get dark enough for fireworks with my brother, brother-in-law, and husband.
My husband and I. Not the best picture ever but at least we got a picture of the two of us.:)
