Jillian's 1st Birthday

I can't believe how fast this year has flown by...
My baby is 1 year old! We celebrated her special day with another of mom's famous ice cream cakes. We put a Mickey Mouse toy on top as part of the decoration... she is infatuated with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse right now!

This is Jillian checking out her treat!

Hmmm... Maybe I'll give it a try...


She just stuck her whole mouth in the ice cream... it's faster that way!

Here are some of my favorite pictures of the past year..

We love our Jilly Bean! She is a joy to have in our family!
Happy Birthday Jillian!


Joshua's 7th Birthday

Joshua's party was a blast! He invited a few friends for a "tech deck" skater birthday bash and had a blast. All of the kids are decorating their party favor bags. From left to right: Adam, Jonathan, Tyler, Jeffrey, Josh, Jimmy, Mitchell

Josh goofing around with his buddies while eating pizza!

Tyler's pile of pepperoni's... who doesn't like pepperoni? I don't get it!

Josh won the Balloon Stomp game!

We had a Tony Hawk pinata... Jonathan was the one to smack his head off.
(ok, we couldn't find a skateboard pinata...we opted for the one that looked like Tony Hawk!)

Get that candy!

Skater ice cream birthday cake. I made the half pipe with fruit roll ups and wafer cookies. Topped it off with a Tech Deck skateboard and lego guy and waa laa! One cool cake!

Joshua blowing out the candles. He had no idea what kind of cake I made and loved it!

Loved all of his presents! Lots of Bakugans, Tech Decks and a little $$$. Grandma got him this Bakugan case... he loved everything!

I'm sure he's counting down the days to his next birthday...


Behind on my blogs...

I've gotten behind on my blogging, but here are some photos that my friend Melissa took of Jillian today. She turned 1 year old today! I have more to write, but for now, enjoy!
I posted more on my facebook page (for those of you who are FB fans!)


Pay It Forward

I copied this from my sister Maree's blog... it should be fun!

Pay it FORWARD--How it works:

The FIRST THREE people to leave a comment on this post will receive at some point during this year a handmade gift from me. What it will be and when it will arrive will be a total surprise--to both of us.

The CATCH is that YOU MUST PLAY TOO! Before you leave your comment here, write a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going (you can cut and paste these instructions). Then come back and let me know that you are going to play, and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift. It's THAT easy!

Remember, only the FIRST THREE comments will qualify. Good luck!
