One year ago today, on my actual due date God blessed us with exactly what our family needed. An 8lb 15oz sweet, loving, quiet (quite the opposite from her sister), perfect little princess. This past year has been a learning curve for me to say the least. I kinda thought I had motherhood all figured out, but mommy to two is a whole different ballgame! This was my first year as a stay at home mom, and I honestly thought I would be conquering the world...well that didn't happen...but I am so thankful for the opportunity that God has given our family for me to stay home with our girls. We are truly blessed! Ok, back to Larsyn turning ONE! Sweet little L LOVES minnie and mickey so we thought it was only fitting to have that as our themed birthday party. Our amazing and talented daddy went to work on the door sign (he doesn't see the importance of this, but he humors me). He also made a big ONE for the table...he is so crafty!
daddy! (She liked the tissue paper the best).
Our first born is 3...no way! It feels like yesterday that we were taking her home from the hospital (completely clueless on how to care for a child). It is such an honor and a privilege to be Journey's mommy and to watch her grow and learn. This year I asked her what theme she wanted for her birthday party and she chose Cinderella. I figured it would change several times, so I waited a month or so, and asked again...still Cinderella! So we (Drew is a party planner too!) jumped in with both feet and planned the best (in my opinion) Cinderella birthday party EVER!
fun for about 5 minutes!
Favorite Drink: MILK!
Enjoy a few pics from the celebration...
Yes we are still here, and yes I do realize I haven't posted in a VERY long time! My new years resolution is blog more and document the hilarious moments in our day to day life, but first let me get you all caught up (or somewhat caught up) from last time, so here is the first blog of 2013! A look back at 2012: January-April were kind of a blur as Drew was in Afghanistan and I was working full-time, raising an 18 month old and pregnant! Thankfully I have amazing family and friends close by that helped in many ways! The 2011-2012 school year was my first year teaching, God provided me with the opportunity to teach 5th grade at Angie Debo Elementary school, and let me tell you the teachers there are AMAZING! As most first year teachers, you really just try to survive, but my first year was more than that, it was a learning experience and I am so blessed to have experienced it. I met new friends, and learned a lot about myself. Drew returned in April from a 4.5 month deployment...Praise God! He was safe and sound and ready to help deliver our 2nd daughter! We had found out the day Drew left (December 1st) that we were expecting...yes we were both shocked!
