Andee’s 1st Birthday…Blog #2…Party shots :)

Wow, I thought I would be quicker at this.  But throw a youth camp in the mix, and for some reason it has taken me a few weeks to get it together 🙂  Anyways, here are some shots from Andee’s birthday party.  Soon to follow (I hope!) are pics from dinner on Andee’s actual birthday….

Welp, there you have it.  It was a blast and Andee thoroughly enjoyed the evening!



Andee’s 1st Birthday Part…Blog #1…DETAILS :)

There’s about 3 or 4 blog posts coming in the next few days…hopefully 🙂  This one will chronicle the details of Andee’s 1st birthday party.  Yep, that’s right, our little one turned 1 year old last Saturday!

On Thursday, we had friends and family over to celebrate.  We did a “Goodnight Moon” theme, one of Andee’s favorite books!  We read it in English and Spanish 🙂

I had so much fun putting together this party!  I promised Steve that I will not go overboard on the next few birthday parties…but you can’t skimp on the 1st :).  I loved all the details…and I loved all the people that love and support our little Andee!  Next post will be the people from the party…plus pics of Andee eating her cake!

Aunt Buff, Georgia, Mini-Makeover, Mafia, and Motormouth

Here we go!

Aunt Buff came to visit us a few weekends ago.  We had a blast.  We had some other friends in town doing an adventure race, so we cheered them on, had a great dinner in the back room together, went on walks, and just hung out together.  It was a great time!

After a great weekend with Aunt Buff, we (Leslie, Andee, and Aunt Buff) hopped a plane for Georgia!  We spent 8 days there with family and friends.  It was a great time too.  Andee loves being around family!  I wish I had a pic from the time there, but they are on my mom’s camera.  It could be awhile before I see them, folks…

No, I didn’t get a makeover.  But on Sunday I gave the front of my house a mini-makeover.  Steve had to work all afternoon, and Andee was sleeping, so I had no one to play with.  So I did this:

I call this the $15.00 makeover.  I simply gave the front of my house a facelift.  I took down the shutters, cleaned them and repainted them, repainted our house numbers and the star, and cleaned the front of the house with a broom.  The only cost?  4 cans of spray paint.

Yep, we are in the mafia.  Or at least we were on Sunday night.  We went to a fun party to celebrate the birthdays of our friends Robin & Traci.  It is always great to dress up and pretend as well 😉

That’s a water gun…I promise.

Our little motormouth…

That is Andee eating her afternoon snack outside while I finished up the mini-makeover.  She is quite the motormouth these days.  She is saying DaDa, MaMa, thank you, and doggie.  She has taken about 9 steps over the past few days.  We are slightly scared for the day when she takes off 🙂
