Mother's Day Tea

 Every year I enjoy hosting a Mother's Day Tea for all of our moms, sisters, aunties, cousins and friends.  I always have a great time decorating and putting on a special day for all our special people.  
What better way to celebrate the moms than with girls and food??? :)

Thank you to all the ladies that could make it-
you are all wonderful and I couldn't imagine life without you!!
And for those who couldn't make it- we missed you, and there's always next year!

The Big "Reveal"

When I first found out I was pregnant I remembered an idea that I had seen on a few blogs about having a baby gender "reveal" party.  I KNEW I wanted to do one (of course another excuse to party!!) when we found out this past week what we were having.  We just invited our closest friends and family, and it ended up being SO much fun!! The kids really got into it, and Camryn had so much fun helping me plan all the little details. It was a great way to announce our 4th and FINAL!!

I went with a "cravings" theme for the dessert bar.  I had seen that idea on a couple 
of other blogs and thought it was cute.
The color scheme was yellow (my FAV, and very neutral:) and gray- perfect for Spring!!
Thanks to my friend Stacey for all her help!!

The signs for the table read: Sweet (cupcakes), Salty (kettle corn), Sour (lemon bars), 
and Chewy (chocolate-dipped marshmallows).


I made a banner on the mantle and added some of the ultrasound pictures we've had taken.  
Everyone had fun "searching" for the RIGHT picture to guess if it was a boy or girl. 
(It, obviously, wasn't on there... ;)

We also had a tally board with clips so everyone could cast their "votes".

A couple of other little details...

 For the reveal I had a couple of different ideas, but decided to go with...

PINK balloons!!!!!!
We were SO excited to find out we're having 
our 2nd little girl!!!!!!!!

I would say the kids were a little excited too..... ;)

All I can say is we feel so blessed- 2 and 2!!
Here's praying for a healthy little girl! :)

Fun Times...

My Dad and Stepmom came to visit the end of January. We had a great time, despite me feeling a little "under the weather".  The kids had a blast just hanging out...
One of Cami's favorites- art with Grandpa!
Another fav- puzzles...
We took a trip over to Irvine Regional Park for some fishing and the train ride, of course. :)

We took a little detour to Sprinkles, too...

And celebrated Grandpa's BIG 6-0!!!
(Not one of my prettiest cakes, but everyone liked it! :)

Grandma Diane enjoyed a little 'girl time' with Cami :)

We love you Grandpa and Grandma!! :)

Happy BeLATEd Birthday Blake!

On January 7th, our baby boy turned a whopping 3 years old!!

Happy Birthday Blake!!!
We love you!!!

Celebrating at pre-school...

He is in love with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, so here was his 'Mod-Mickey' party.
I just LOVED the way it came out, and I think he liked it too... ;)

The dessert bar- thanks to my mom and sis for all their help!

LOVE Thomas the Tank Engine!
Thank you everyone!!
