Dylan's 3rd Birthday Party

Let me preface this by saying I wasn't sure what theme to go with for our daughter's 3rd birthday. She is not really into the Disney Princess thing ...yet. Her favorite thing right now is Charlie and Lola. Well, those items are hard to come by on late, if she is still as interested next year. I will plan ahead and order online.

So, I was searching on the internet a while back and I came across a site that showed how to make these cute little dolls. I honestly can't remember the site... so, if by some chance you know it(or recognize these) let me know so I can give credit to person who deserves it.

I decided to use these dolls as the inspiration for my decorations.

I also used the trees from this post and decorated them with fabric flowers and of course more dolls. I really liked the way they turned out.

I even incorporated the dolls onto her Party hat.
(which I found at IKEA)

And also, on the Cake.

Here it is with balloons and presents.

(The doll and stroller were her early birthday gift from her
Mema and Papaw while we vacationed with them in NC.
She named her doll Lola.)

Since it was just the 4 of us...
I didn't go over the top with decorations but, she really liked it.

She couldn't wait to use her new Little Tikes Shopping Cart.
It really is the cutest thing.

Charlie and Lola even showed up!!!

Pretty good 3rd birthday. We love you Dylan!!

Back From Vacation....

We had a great time on our vacation this year. We were able to spend 2 awesome weeks with my Mom and Dad in NC. We did the beach almost everyday, ate out, shopping, visited the aquarium , played putt-putt, drove go carts, swam at the pool, had a small b-day party/cookout for the kids, played many games of Rummy, Kings Corner, Chicken Foot Dominoes, Phase 10, Rummikub, and had a few road trips in between. It was a long drive...over 20 hours each way, but the kids did great. We are already planning our trip for next year. Thanks Mom and Dad for a great 2 weeks. We love and miss you already!!!

Blocks and Trees

When I'm bored or just in a blah kind of mood, I like to make things.
Crafting makes me happy.
I would really like to have one of those new Silhouette Machines or a Cricut Expression.
Right now, neither of those are within my budget.
One day.Hopefully soon.
Anyway, I have gotten the crafting bug lately and here are 2 things I have been able to make.

The Be ...Blocks

I was able to make these blocks with the help of some great ladies at church. I think they turned out great. They say Be... Grateful,Humble, Prayerful, Positive, Involved, Still, Smart, True, and Clean.


These I made just for fun. I need to go and buy some more moss for the tops. I wasn't exactly sure of what I was going to make so I kind of ran out of supplies. Not too bad for my first try...and I had fun.
