The Vintage Pearl is having a giveaway! I've had my eye on some of their goodies for a while but am waiting for the little miss before I put in my official wishlist with the hubby.  ;)

Baby girl is getting bigger and bigger and while I'm not at the end of this pregnancy, I did want to get our picts done before I felt awkwardly huge. So, my sister came over and took some photos for us. Then, I did my favorite part: the editing. I think they turned out cute... What about you?

The Little Mister is 2!!!

I'm still a little in shock that I have a 2 year old. It's unreal. But, he is so much fun and we enjoy every single day with him. As I type, the hubby and the little mister are playing together while the Packer game is on. They are so much fun to watch!

Last night, we celebrated the life of the little mister by having friends and family over.  Here are some of my favorite moments:

His face was precious when we sang "Happy Birthday" to him.

He and Daddy blew out his candle.

He doesn't like cake so his candle was in a cookie. He LOVES those cookies!

He's starting to understand presents... Christmas should be fun!

He was too busy with all his new toys to take a photo with mom and dad.

To see the tutorial on how I did my hair, go to my cousin Kate's blog here:

See? He only wants to play!

Papa Eddy and Nana

The treat table.

Even our chalkboard celebrated his birthday!
It was really such a great night. The LM has been going back and forth between all of this new toys today and we already watched his new copy of Toy Story. He is just such a sweet blessing to our lives. We took some extra time to pray for an extra special blessing for everyone who was able to make it out to celebrate him with us. We appreciate you all.

tree skirt

So, I'm totally addicted to Pinterest. Who isn't?! I've made a few things from there but this is my FAVORITE so far. You can find the original tutorial here:  Tree Skirt tutorial.  The only things I did differently are I bought a $5 tree skirt from Fleet Farm to use as the base and instead of hot gluing (I ALWAYS burn myself), I used my grandma's old sewing machine to sew it. Saved a ton of time and money (glue sticks are expensive!).

Here's my finished product!

Hope you like it! Now my tree is officially done!
