Babyshower for a friend

I threw a babyshower for my friend Amanda (with some help from another friend). It turned out good. We played a couple of fun games and enjoyed talking and eating. We had mini muffins and fruit and lil' smokies wrapped in crescent rolls. I made the cake, it was red velvet inside (the mother-to-be's favorite) with cream cheese frosting. Because I am behind in posting, the beautiful baby girl was born last sunday and I got to go and visit them in the hospital and got a few pictures.

Babysitting Moments!

I love when we go out and have a sitter. I usually come home to find pictures on the camera and it is fun to see what they have done while I am gone!


This is what I came home to after dinner and a movie for my birthday. David had the girls and Brooke cried a lot. She finally fell asleep right before I got home. I love the way she is holding David's collar!

7 months!

This video was taken a day or two before she turned 7 months, but she is crawling and it is so cute. She is slow in this video because she was slipping on the hard floor. I can't believe how fast my baby is growing up!

Lauren turns 6

Lauren turned 6 at the beginning of February and we had a birthday party. She requested a heart cake this year and my friend Brandy lent me her double heart pan. We had pink alfredo with heart shaped breadsticks for dinner. Then they got to shoot darts at a heart target. They all had a lot of fun. The cupcakes I made to take to her class on her birthday!

Here is a video of her blowing out the candles:

This year I decided to do homemade valentines. I saw an idea to do small doilies and put candy in them, but decided to buy large ones and fill them with dove chocolate for teachers/girl scout leaders.
These are the valentines the girls took to girl scouts. The ones they did for class had the pencil with a bag of candy attached (not the saying).

Crazy Dress Day!

The girls had an opportunity to dress/hair crazy for school. This was what I came up with.

Ft. Wayne!

A couple weeks ago the girls and I went to Ft. Wayne, Indiana. What is there you say? My niece Celestial and her husband Elijah just moved there. My sister Sheila was visiting so we got to hang out with her also. Sheila loves taking pictures and she sent me the ones she took. These are my favorites, with a few of my own added in.
The girls posed when we got into the house.
So then all the girls posed with Celestial.
Sheila painted finger and toenails.

Elijah pulled out the banana chairs, which were a big hit.
The girls loved the stationary bicycle that they had.
Random Reagan.
Reagan took quickly to Celestial.
Random Brooke.
Brooke and Celestial.
Decorating Cookies.
Aunt Sheila was brave and let the girls do her hair.
We went to a place called Crazy Pinz and played black light mini golf.
They surprised me with an early birthday celebration.

Here are a couple of videos from our time. The first one is of a dance contest between Sheila and Abi and the last one is of Abi and Lauren on the stationary bike.
