What an excellent day Saturday turned out to be! Sunshine and upper 70's. We couldn't have asked for a nicer day for Payton's 1st birthday party! We love all of our family and friends that were able to join us and help us celebrate a special day in our little girl's life. We love you all!!!
Here are a few pictures from our day. Enjoy...

It is hard to imagine that this was Reese and I playing in the baby's room the last night that I was pregnant over a year ago now! We were all 3 soooo anxious to meet little Payton. How could I have known what an amazing little girl I had growing inside me. She is our sunshine and I think that all 3 of us are so lucky to have little Payter with us. She has made Reese into an amazing big sister, and us closer as a family! You are a blessing Payton, we all love you!!!

Random, and more Random

I haven't posted about much lately, so here is a couple of weeks in review...
WARNING-A compilation of a lot of random stuff!

One of my best friends, Jodi (most of you know her:)) had a baby girl a couple of months ago, so I made her this little outfit! The headband I kind of made up from an idea I was given, but the skirt pattern I got here, which I got from this blog (thanks Echo!) And I got the shoes pattern here. The whole thing turned out so cute, I made one for Payton and Reese too! Maybe if Jodi comes out to see us anytime soon, we can get a picture of all three of them together...Just an idea Jod...

This is how I found Payton the other day...quite as a mouse:) I didn't know where she was, but low and behold, she was doing laundry! Sweet little punkin.

Last week I got to excape for an evening and go out to celebrate my good friend Becky's (she is the one in the middle) 30th Birthday! Jason finally went to bed because he didn't know where I was. We sat in the same booth for over 4 hours just chatting eachother up. All of us had escaped from our kiddos for an evening and I don't think any of us were in a hurry to get out of there! Happy Birthday Becky!!!

Talk about eating the fruits of your labor (or veggies:) This was a wonderful salad that I made myself the other night. Everything but the gargonzola is from our garden! I even made a balsamic dressing and topped it with hard boiled eggs from Scarlette and Penelope:) UMMM YUMMY...

Here is the last of my random pics! I had to include this one. How do you know that your dogs are out of water??? They try to drink from the pool:) Poor Bella, luckily I figured it out and gave the poor thing something to drink!

Happy Father's Day Everyone...I will be back this week for Payton's 1st Birthday!

Oh Sweet baby, where did 4 years go?

After 18 long hours of labor, you were so sweetly laid in my arms. The last nine months seemed to slip my mind so suddenly. All of the morning sickness, headaches and never ending swelling were gone. Wiped out!
Because I had just pushed (and I do mean pushed!) you out and couldn't believe you were finally here. Such a beautiful and sweet girl you were from the 1st minute. Today I will watch your birth so that I can be reminded of that feeling when you were first handed to me. That feeling of complete understanding, contentment and satisfaction to have you here with me.

I love you Reese Mckenzie. Like I have never loved anyone else. Like I never knew that I could love anyone else. You are a part of me. Your attitude:) (no idea where you get that:)), your funny faces, your sweet sensitivity.

You are an amazing daughter and a wonderful big sister. I love watching the little lady that you are becoming.

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!

And yes, we will be friends forever!!!
