Party Time!

We celebrated M's 2nd Birthday this weekend and had such a great time.  Unfortunately, M has been fighting some kind of virus all week so she wasn't 100% at her party but seems to be feeling quite a bit better today.  I am hopeful we are on the road to recovery.  Anywho, back to the party....

I decided on the theme because I figure this will be my last year getting to decide the theme.  We went with a Sweets Party, because our girl LOVES anything sweet.  We had sugar cookies, cake pops, chocolate covered pretzels, big cupcakes, and mini cupcakes.  Needless to say I went a little overboard but my girl only turns 2 once!  :) 

This year Tyler built M a grocery store in her bedroom.  Its way cool and I've already logged quite a bit of time shopping for fake groceries!  :)  The best part is that M likes to hand out money instead of take the money for the items I purchase, its pretty funny.  I tried to explain it to her but for now she likes giving it away more than taking it.

Anywho, take a look at these adorable pictures.  For more pics from the party check out my photography blog.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Mae Rae!!!!

Yesterday our baby was two years old!  Neither of us can believe its been a whole two years since she was born, but at the same time I honestly don't remember what it was like not having her around.  Ok, I do a little bit nice dinners out, or at home, and sleeping 8 consecutive hours, but I wouldn't trade any of it. 
This weekend we had our family over for a nice little birthday party and Sunday we are celebrated quietly at home.  Our girl just isn't one for a crowd so a nice evening with momma and daddy should be right up her alley. :)

We did a little 2 year photo shoot this morning in the back yard and this is what we got!  :)  

P.S., more pictures of our gals birthday party to come!  I am so excited to share these pictures with you.

She loves herself! :)

Touchdown Chiefs!

I can hardly believe its already the middle of November, where has the year gone?  Maizie and I have been trying to enjoy every nice day that we've been getting here lately.  It looks like its going to get crummy for a day or two but then be beautiful again into next week.  I am hoping this weather sticks around all winter but I have my doubts. Until winter decides to take over, M and I will spend our days taking walks with Cash, sliding, blowing bubbles and chasing each other around the yard. :)  
Here are a few pictures of our girl so far this month.
