Anthro Inspired Woodland Forest Birthday Party for Twins and a Pixie

WoodlandParty 2011-03-19 (29)

In March of 2011 my friend Tish asked me to help her do a birthday party for her adorable twins girls that were turning 2, and their friend, another adorable girl who was also turning 2.  In return she would give me some photo sessions.  Well, considering that she is an awesome photographer, it was an offer I couldn’t refuse!  (You can check out her stuff here.)  We set up a meeting to discuss what the party would look like.  At the meeting was Kim, cake decorator extraordinaire, and Parr, mommy to Kennedy and an amazing artist in her own […]

I’m back!- Sort of

I have to say, the last few weeks at my house have been INSANE.  It has just been one thing after another, but through it all, God is still good. It all started with the crazy weather.  We had some of the coldest temperatures on record a few weeks ago.  It was in the -14 area I think.  For people up north I’m sure that is nothing, but for us in the south, that is huge!  Schools were cancelled, businesses closed, and APS couldn’t start their buses.  We ended up having a frozen water pipe (which thankfully did NOT burst), […]


Okay, seriously, the league who shall not be named (read-major football empire) has some crazy rules that are just a little ridiculous.  I’m sorry to say, but if some of their rules are upheld in a court of law, it is a serious miscarriage of justice. My hubby just started to re-amp one of his blogs, TheBeerean, and on his post this morning was a link to the aforementioned league and their asinine rules of conduct regarding an overly advertised franchise that is more concerned with making money then anything else.  Granted, I love a great party and any excuse to have one, […]

…and Party Everyday!

I realize that I need to include more pictures in my blog posts.  The problem, however, is that we have so many that is was slowing down our computers.  Greg ended up putting them on an external harddrive.  Since he has yet to show me how to take them off, I am left with words.  Oh well.  I should have a lot more to include in the coming weeks. As I said Monday, things are starting to get a lot busier around here.  I am taking a *gulp* small step in starting a party planning business.  I have a 3 […]

The BEST baby shower gift for 1st time mommies


A little over 2 1/2 years ago Greg and I welcomed Asa into the world.  He has been a joy and a wonderful addition to our family.  A few months before he was born a friend threw a baby shower for me and we were fortunate to have many friends and family shower us with gifts.  Everything from diapers and wipes to clothes to highchairs and a car seat/stroller combo were included in the gifts that were graciously provided for us. If I remember right, every one of those gifts was used and cherished in its time.  There is one […]

Someone reads my blog!

So yesterday I was pleasantly surprised to receive a comment on my blog from someone I had never met!  Brandy from Simply Creative Insanity liked the cupcake tree I had Greg make for Asa’s second birthday.  She liked it so much, that she posted a picture of it on her blog!  Go check her out.  She has some amazing stuff posted over there! BTW, there are more posts coming on the Robot Baby Shower. S Tweet
