Madison's 1st Day of Preschool

My baby girl started Preschool today. I am so excited for her, because I know she loves to go hang out with kids and she has a love for learning too! Chi-ching! I get to pick her up in a little over an hour. I can't wait to hear all about her day!!!

I have seen this idea all over blogland and I plan to keep it up every year:

We gave a flower arrangement just like this to her teacher last year too. Check it out here. I got the idea from this site.

Brantley's 1st Birthday Party: Nautical Theme

Today we celebrated my son's first birthday! I truly can't believe it has been a year since he was born. We had such a great time with friends and family. I appreciate them all for coming out to make this a special day. Here are a few pics from the party:

The adorable cake was created by my mother. I showed her some inspiration pics that I found online and she created this two tiered masterpiece!

The food table. We served sandwiches, chips/dip, fruit skewers, pickles & goldfish.

It was such a great time! Now, I need to get off here so I can get ready for my father-in-law's birthday celebration!
