Please Pray!!

Just wanted to add a prayer request. A guy that works for Ash, his name is Kevin, texted Ash a little while ago and said that his wife went into labor. She's not due until July 23rd, which makes her only three days ahead of me. She has about five more weeks to go. Unfortunately, I don't remember the wife's name and I am pretty sure they are having a boy, I will find out all the details I can tomorrow and will keep you updated. This is their first child, please be in prayer for them and their new baby. Thank you!

Baby Shower Pics!

So on Friday my friend Jennifer hosted a baby shower for me at her house, it was so awesome. Quite the turnout, I felt incredibly blessed and supported by all the women of our church. As we build more and more relationships here it is definitely getting harder to want to leave. It was an awesome night, full of yummy food, friends and a ton of PINK!!! Get ready for picture overload.

Caleb sneaking an eggroll, I don't blame him they're good!

Everything was awesome, I seriously am getting hungry thinking about all the good food that was there. Everybody did an awesome job, gotta love those Baptist women!

Alyssa did a great job planning games, they were so much fun! Here's Molly diapering a baby doll under 30 seconds with her eyes closed. Too funny!


Everyone was so generous, it was such a blessing. I had gotten rid of pretty much everything after Ainsley, thinking we were done having children. So this was HUGE to us.
Just some of the things I got, I won't post all of them or we'd be here all day!
Cute bibs, one with a cute cupcake on it. Gotta love the face I'm making.lol

Sweet little books, I love children's books!
We got a ton of sweet outfits as well as other precious items that are going to be so much fun to use with our new baby girl! There were a ton of people that I didn't get pics of who were there, they mean very much to me though and I appreciate all of your generosity. And thank you to everyone who brought food and had a part in this shower. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart!

Officially a First Grader

Tatum graduated from Kindergarten tonight! This year totally flew by, whew! Tonight was pretty much a repeat from Prestin's graduation last year, same ceremony with the same songs. But it was still cute, Tatum had to read a sentence she wrote about what she liked best about Kindergarten. It was sweet and simple "I like P.E. because we play." But I gotta tell you I was tearing up the whole time, she seems so grown up and she is reading so well. It's crazy how much they mature their first year in school. This Fall we will have a Second grader, First Grader and another in Pre-K, not to mention a new baby girl to add to the mix. Wow, I never in a million years would have thought that my life would be MY LIFE! Thank you God that I am not in control of my own life and You knew so much better that each one of our children was not intended to be our last.

This is Tatum accepting her certificate, so grown up.

Tatum and her teacher, Mrs. Berry.
Congratulations, Taterbug! We love you and are so very proud of you!

More Sweetness!

So I've picked up a few things throughout the last couple of months for Little Miss Sadie, and here's just a couple onesies that I thought were super sweet! I love Carter's baby clothes. Sorry the lighting wasn't that great.I was thinking these little clips would go pretty well with them, they're from etsy. Hi, my name is Danielle Farley and I am addicted to Etsy.

Also very sweet, Madi and her best friend Leslie at the softball game last night. They were covered, head to toe in dirt.

Ainsley snuck in at the last moment.

Sweet things on the brain

I don't know if it's the extra estrogen coursing through my body right now or what, but I have to say that anything sweet or pink is on my brain right now. I have to share because I can't keep it to myself, these things are just too cute. First of all cake decorating has always been something I have wanted to do. There are classes you can take at Michael's, but I have always either just had a baby or like this last time the classes fell on Wednesday's and would have interfered with church. So anyways last night I stumbled on to this lady who lives in Australia that makes these beautiful cupcakes and cookies that are almost to pretty to eat. I think that she used fondant to decorate them with, which I've heard isn't very tasty but makes them look really pretty. I got a recipe from a lady for marshmallow fondant, that the maker says is really delicious and gives the same look so I'll have to try it out. I definitely want to try the ones with the cherries on top.

The next one is this cake from I think it's called the Cake Journal, I'll have to look it up again, but isn't it amazing?
I don't remember where I saw these, I've had them saved in my favorites for a long time though. I love snowmen, that's all I decorate with at Christmas time!

So are you sick of all the sweetness yet? Well too bad because there's more. When you were a little girl didn't you wish you had a playhouse. Just look at these, I can't decide which one I love more. This first one is at www.restyledhome.blogspot.com, there are a ton of pictures of the inside, it's so sweet. Maybe Ash will make me one some day, I mean the girls.hee hee
This next one is from www.turkeyfeathers.typepad.comIf you go to this blog there is a link to her daughter's etsy shop. You have to look at the amazing things this teenage girl makes. Here's just a sample of the clay edibles she makes for dollhouses

This is her little dollhouse bakeryAnd a sneak peek inside, she decorates it for all seasons and holidays.
This is what I've been eyeing for the girls for Christmas. It's from Potterybarn Kids, it's a little pricey but x 5 girls it actually isn't too bad. I'll gladly accept donations(ha ha), no seriously!And some pretty play food made out of felt from PBK and etsy.
This cute necklace is from etsy, it's kind of silly and not Premier Designs jewelry I know, but totally me. I love it!
Pictures of my dream retro fridge called Big Chill. Which I won't be able to have until all my children have moved out, because it's too small for our large family. They come in a ton of colors, like PINK and RED!! I think this would be a fun idea to do in my kitchen some day, to make it look like a candy shop. Look at this cute little punch from Martha Stewart Crafts.Speaking of cupcakes, yet again! Look what I got in the mail from my MIL the other day these sweet little note cards, totally unexpected! I love getting things in the mail, thanks Anna I love them!So anyways I know that was a lot, but I needed to get it out of my head. I'll just leave you with one more pic, one thing I was excited about when moving to Washington was to have a beautiful garden. Cottage gardens are my favorite, they give you that feeling of being in a secret garden. The "Secret Garden" being one of my favorite books growing up by the way. They just seem kind of enchanting, well any ways I found this picture and thought wouldn't that be awesome if this was what you had to walk through to get to your front door. Oh Sigh! Seriously, picket fences and roses what better combination is there? Well there is peanut butter and chocolate.
