A Birthday Brunch

Josie's birthday brunch was a success!  This year I had a difficult time planning Josie's birthday party.  I felt like she was to young for most of the ideas I had.  So after searching pinterest I decided we should do a waffle bar.  Waffles are her favorite thing to eat.  I got my inspiration from here.  

Being the cheap person that I am I decided to make my own decorations.  Remember this window project?  I had to write a little something on it in honor of our birthday girl.

I decorated the tables in photographs that my friend Sarah from The Winthrop Chronicles took.  I just used frames that I already had and swapped out the pictures.   

The Desert Table

I incorporated these cute little cupcake stands I got last summer.  I love to find reasons to use them.  

I made a couple of miniature pompoms and windmills to add a little bit of texture to the table.

The desert table was my focal point.

And of course a picture of the birthday girl!  She was so excited when she woke up this morning and saw all the decorations.  I don't think she realized it was all for her though.  Happy Birthday to my sweet baby girl.

The Big 2


Favorite Person: Daddy
Favorite Book: Any
Favorite Color: Purple
Favorite Toy: Baby Doll
Favorite Song: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Favorite Food: Salad with Ranch Dressing

Wow, the past two years have sure flown by.  This little girl has taught be so much.  How to love, laugh, cry.  She always keeps me on my toes.  Her favorite word is "NO" said with attitude.  She reminds me so much of myself that it scares me.  But then when she runs to me with open arms or makes smooching sounds so I will come give her a kiss, I realize she has me wrapped around her finger.

Miles 6 Months

I know I have been MIA lately, there will be more to come on that later but for now, I need to share these photos of my sweet little man.  Can you believe he is already six months old?  

Not a day goes by that I don't thank Heavenly Father for sending this special spirit to us.

His sweet personality lights up the room.

And he sleeps 12 hours at night and has since he was a month old.

I will admit that when I found out I was pregnant with Miles, I was terrified.  Luckily Heavenly Father knows me more then I know myself and he sent this little guy anyway.
