Sweet Sammy is 3!

I can't believe my sweet boy is 3!!!  He had such a fun party this past weekend with our family.  He wanted a Mickey Mouse party, so mommy had fun checking out party ideas on Pintrest!  Oh, how I love you Pintrest! 

How cute are these Mickey Oreo pops?!  I love how they turned out!  http://pinterest.com/pin/157414949447765495/

I covered a party hat I had left over from another party with some fun fabric from Hobby Lobby.  I cut out the ears from some thick felt and glued them on the the fabric.  I adore how his little hat turned out!

How precious is his shirt?!!  My sweet friend made this for him...

His sweet little cake was yummy...

His banner turned out super cute!  Sorry it's hard to see in this pic.  I had some left over paper from Miss T's party, so I decided to use the red, black, and yellow paper for his banner.

This sweet boy couldn't wait to eat his cake!

Yay for cousins and big sissy's!

Happy Birthday sweet boy...We love you!


Miss T is nine!

I can't believe my sweet girl is 9!  How could this be possible?!  I'm one lucky mama!!! 

This year, T wanted to have her first sleep over party!  Her daddy and I thought that would be super fun for her, so we let her invite a few of her friends.  We decided to make pizza's, have an ice cream bar, and make sea salt scrub for their craft.  The girlie's had such a good time!  Here are some fun pics from her party.  Enjoy!

I love how her banners turned out!  My sweet friend let me borrow her Cricut and I am now obsessed!  I got the super cute paper at Hobby Lobby.  The chevron ribbon is also from Hobby Lobby.

I made her cute flower balls from tissue paper from good old Walmart. 

Yummy ice cream bar goodies

Love these cute little mason jars for the girlie's sea salt scrub

What would a sleepover be without some pizza!

They had so much fun making ice cream sunday's

Happy Birthday sweet T...

Present time!

Our sweet girl had such a fun party! 

On Miss T's actual birthday, I made her some really fun PINK cookies for her class at school.  Yes, those are Rolo's in the middle!  They turned out soooo cute!  Thank you Pintrest!

Miss T really wanted to celebrate with her birthday with her family too.  So, we decided to have a fun little party at our house the following weekend.  I used the same decorations, so it was super easy and fun!  We did have cupcakes at this party though!  They were from our cute little local bakery here in Eufaula.

I found the super cute plates and napkins at Target

The cute goodies bags are Skittle's and Rolo's.  "Gold at the end of the Rainbow".

I intended to make a rainbow out of the fruit, but I ran out of time.  

I added some burlap ribbon to my mirror and put some cutie pie pics of Miss T on the mirror.  What a simple way to add a personal touch.  Love it!

My sweet girl...

Make a wish...

We love our cousins...

Aunt Shelby and my sweet boy...


Our Branson Family Vacation
July 2012

We had such a wonderful trip to Branson this year!  We wanted to go somewhere close and super fun for the kids!  (and mommy and daddy!)  We stayed in a wonderful hotel that had a great indoor/outdoor pool, huge splash pad, and and huge indoor slide.  We stayed in the Welk Resort Splash-a-torium.  It was great!  It was away from the Branson Strip and close to Silver Dollar City.  It was perfect!  (also very friendly on the budget). 

The hotel had a huge slide.  The girls loved it! 

 Splash Park fun!

One of the highlights of our vacation was Silver Dollar City.  This was little Sam's 1st trip. There was a lot of things to do for every age.  We all had a blast!  It's such a special place.  I love that you feel like you have truly stepped back in time. 

My heart...

We love Fire in the Hole!!!

My favorite meal at Silver Dollar City...Yummo!!!

Umm...yes please!

I just love all of the little signs around this wonderful place...Makes my heart smile.

Love this!  It's rare to see this in an amusement park.

Me and my babies...

Me and my big boy...For those of you that think Sam looks like my hubby, you guys are wrong!  lol!

Another fun pic of me and my babies...I'm such a lucky mama!

Sweet boy loved his first visit to Silver Dollar City!

On the 4th of July we went to Big Cedar Lodge.  This place is amazing!!!! They were having a fireworks show that night so we decided to check it out. 

My sweet kiddo's near the marina at Big Cedar.

Sam was very excited for the fireworks to start.  Lol!

This happened to be the BEST show we have ever seen!  It was about 45 Minutes long and it went to music.  It was awesome!

I decided to slow down my shutter speed and I got some really fun pics!

This was such a fun trip to take with my precious family...I'm truly blessed.

More adventures to come...
