Picture Tag

My friend Tammy tagged me on her blog with the instructions to open my 3rd picture folder and post the 3rd picture in it. Well, here it is:

I believe this was the first time Lily had one of those biter bicuit things, which obviously she loved!

I now tag Jenn, Cate, Janet & Lisa.

The day after her party, while Gavin was at school, Lily and I opened all her new toys! She had a ball playing with everything! I tried to get a picture of all of them for her scrapbook, but here are a few of my favorites of her in action!
Her blocks from Gavin:
One of her new Dollies from Daddy:

She cracks me up in this chair-yesterday she climbed up it onto the couch! Little monkey. Anyway, it plays music too and she loves to stand on it and dance!
Christiann had a great idea to put everything in a circle with her in the middle and let her go to town. She totally did! She moved from toy to toy. :)

I didn't get a good picture, but she plays with the little pink house & camper almost like she knows what she's doing even though she has no clue. She's also tried to climb into the baby stroller, and gives her babies big squeezes. She loves all her new toys and clothes-everything is perfect. It's so fun to watch her!

Color Challenge

It's time again for another one of Kristina's Color Challenges! When I saw these colors, for some reason I thought of a baby card.

Paper-SU! Ballet Blue, So Saffron, Whisper White, Ruby Red
Ink-SU! Certainly Celery, Ruby Red, So Saffron, Ballet Blue, Versamark
Stamps-Nursery Necessities
Clear embossing powder
Ribbon-Certainly Celery, Hemp Twine

I used the Versamark to stamp the stars, then used clear embossing powder on them. I stamped the boat in different colors, then cut out the different pieces. I really like this card and might use it for card swap sometime.

Lily's 1st Birthday!

Lily's birthday was so fun! She had a pink party-everything was pink and sweet!
Here's Lily making her grand entrance...she and her Dad were the last ones to arrive :) I'm sad I didn't take a better picture of her in that cute dress.

Look at this sweet girl Hazel (wearing her cute party hat)! :)

First, we had dinner-I made homemade mac & cheese for Lily and the kids, Shirley Temples, pink jell-o, chicken nuggets, sandwiches...all kinds of yummy stuff. Then we opened presents! Lily loved that! She did waay better than I thought she would. She is not a very patient little girl, but she sat right down and tore the paper off and had a great time!

Lily and her fans!

Anthony's mom made the cakes (yup cakes, not just cake)
This one was just for Lily-chocolate!

Aren't they cute? She made them to match the invitations I made for the party.

Here we go:

She loved it!

Oh, pretty dress! (actually, it all came out just fine in the wash)

We had a Pink Sweets table (thanks for the great idea Lori) and the kids got to fill up bags with whatever they wanted...

I also made these for them to take home-it's an ice cream cone dipped in white chocolate and filled with pink yummies.

One of the girls in my ward made these super cute blocks for a baby shower and didn't want them afterwards, so I changed the letters and colors to match her party! Thanks Ashley-everyone loved them!

We had such a good time! Thanks so much for coming everybody!!

I weighed in at Weight Watchers today and it's official- I have lost all of the weight I gained during Lily's pregnancy! (exactly 4 days before her birthday!) Now, I still have 10 to go to my goal, but I'm so excited that I made this goal in less than a year ;)

Kristina's Color Challenge

Yea! I haven't done one in a couple of weeks, but after she made this card, I couldn't wait to try it too!

Paper-SU Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss
Ink- Kiwi Kiss
Ribbon- Chocolate Chip
Transparency sheet
Stamps-SU Lots of Thoughts
SU punches-scallop square, 1 1/4 square
Pop dots
CM cutting system for the circles

I used the transparency sheet instead of the vellum that Kristina used.
On the inside I used the green paper to make a flap so you could write a note underneath and it wouldn't show through.
