Friend Makin Monday

Amber over at aefilkins has got a great Friend Makin Monday-My Daybook!
The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my is overcast and cold! {Boooooooo}

I am thinking....I need to clean my house or get out of it!

I am thankful...for my lovely husband and my toddler(who is screaming at me right now that she was apple sauce.)

I am praying...that everything goes ok and that I can get through the upcoming deployment.

I am reading...nothing at the moment, I want to start reading Eclipse again, soon!

I am creating...a few things at the moment! Keep an eye for them!

From the kitchen...I can whip up some yummy cakes!

Around the house...I have got to get organized!

One of my favorite to sleep!

A few plans for the rest of the week...opening an account at a local bank, talking to someone about a loan for finishing our basement, sew, clean, doctor, dance, school, grocery store, CLEAN some more, wash my car, clean out my car, sweep the front walk.(I could go on!)

My First Sewing Project/Gift

Blakely was invited to a birthday party, which was a "Mermaid Under the Sea" themed party. (Yes, I also made that cake for the party) The little girls was turning 5 and her mommy asked for people not to bring gifts.

Well it just so happen that I purchased this pattern by Dana over at MADE to make this little girl a skirt. I had ordered the fabric chiffon already(blue is the little girls favorite color), so I asked her Mama, if I could make the "birthday" outfit and Blakely give the little girl her gift early. To which she happily obliged! I also had picked up a shirt from Walmart and with some of the ruffled chiffon, I dressed up a shirt to match the skirt. For it being my first skirt and pattern I followed, I thought it turned out quiet nice!


Showing of my creation!
I think she was VERY happy with it!

Cute, huh?

Open Letter to Lil B

My Dearest Blakely,
I need to tell you some things about yourself...
They make your Daddy and me, so very happy and proud of you.
You are 2 years; 9 months; and 7 days
You have grown as fast as everyone told us you would grow,
and it makes us very sad, but happy at the same time,
for you are such an amazing little girl.

We love:
  • how you brush your hair out of your face with both hands.
  • your sweet soft voice.
  • the way you talk to your baby dolls, as if they were your very own children.
  • that you always say, "I'm a big girl, I do________", whenever you do anything 'big'.
  • that you are potty training yourself.
  • that you like to match your big girl panties to your outfit.
  • how blue your eyes are.
  • that people always ask us if we put lipstick on you because your lips are the prettiest shade of pink.
  • that your hair always has static in it and stands up on your head.
  • you always go around saying the Walmart saying, "Save Money, Live Better, Walmart!"
  • that when we ask you to say your name you say, "Bwakwey Wynn Piff".
  • I love how much you love your Daddy.
  • that you love broccoli so much.
  • you count past 20, but get tongue tied after 22.
  • that your babysitter tells us all the time you are such a sweet child.
  • you tell us when you "want to go night-night."
  • you know the whole prayer at bed time.
  • you are so in love with your dog, Maxx.
  • that you love ballet so much.
  • when you give kisses.

I could go on and on, but I just wanted to tell you how much your Daddy and I love everything about you!

My little Snow Angel

The weather here in Missouri has been the worst ever since we have lived here. I thought having spend 2 winters here, I maybe {kinda, sorta} knew what we were in for. Well, I ofcourse was wrong. The snow/weather has been crazy! For about 3 weeks now. We had been gone to Florida for most if it because it started the day we left.

Well, I thought it would be fun for Blakely to play in it! It is so soft, fluffy, and dry. I knew it was cold outside, but we ventured outside to "build a snowman".

We bundled up, which was Blakely's favorite part, putting all her snowsuit stuff on. She kept tell me, "I can't move! Look Mommy I can't move!" She was moving, just not as fast has she would have liked.

We were outside for a total of 20 minutes before I felt the tingle on my legs and she looked at me and said, "I do not like snow no more." Then we were finished. I was very unsuccessful in building a snowman. I should have taken a picture of I attempted.

Meet Lobster

Blakely got a zhu zhu pet for Christmas, if you don'tknow what this is,
you must live under a rock.
We also gave them as gifts to Blakely's cousins.
Blakely for some odd, strange reason, named hers
Please meet Lobster:

Lobster also traveled to Florida with us, he played with "Rat", which is Campbell's(her cousin's zhu zhu-not pictured).
This is Lobster and Rat playing together.(Blakely and Alexa playing with the hamsters)

I also wanted to mention this little guys runs around our house like another pet, he goes to the store with us, to bed with Blakely, and even hangs out on the couch. Strange, very strange...

some of you may have known we were suppost to be heading home to Florida for Christmas, but the AF had different plans for us, so we ended up staying in MO for Christmas Eve and Day.
{we went to FL the day after Christmas}

Our Dear friends, The Allen's, had us over for Christmas Eve Dinner.

This is a picture of Lil B before we left for Christmas Eve Dinner.
{She's Dancing}

Family photo at The Allen's with ofcourse Avery too!

Blakely of course got to open one gift on Chrismas Eve and it was her Christmas PJ's...which she helped pick out(I can't say no!). And afterward they played with The Allen girls American doll girls....this is the one Blakely 'LOVED' and wouldn't put down.

We found it quite funny b/c the doll looked just like her! (she will be getting this one for her B-Day).

We came home after dinner and put out Sant's milk and cookies and ofcourse the reindeers carrots(she wouldn't let us forget to feed them! I think she must have read this in a book at school or something, because she just kept telling us they "needed food" too.

Daddy and Mommy stayed up last ofcourse putting things together and wrapping some last minute things....check out my cutie here!

ALL DONE! Santa came....and it was time for a night cap....
THE NEXT MORNING....she didn't know what to think. She just walked around, looking at everything and then finally screamed out! "Santa brought me a Doll House!"

Opening present....

She had to stop and play with everything and ofcourse try everything on!
At some point she got upset about something and was making this face:

Test driving her scooter with Daddy!

Atlast after all the excitement of opening gifts for 2 hours...she was worn out! She told us she was tired and wanted to just watch Max and Ruby....and so she did, with her trust-y sidekick, Maxx.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Baby!
