It’s been a crazy past couple of weeks! We have so many birthday parties this week, it is ridiculous. Scotty’s birthday is today!! He is rocking that 33 like no other…he is my sweet thang. My niece and nephew are celebrating their birthday’s tomorrow and Graham’s Birthday is on Thursday. I feel like a chicken with their head cut off. I have so many party supplies all over our house that it looks like blue and green threw up on everything. It will probably be just me and Scotty on Thursday to celebrate Graham turning a year (maybe our parents too)…then the big bash will be on Sunday with family and friends. I’ll give you a hint about the theme…Don’t forget your ‘stache!
I wanted to share my week in pictures. Two things I need to mentions right away: 1. These are all from my iPhone, so please excuse the horrible grain. 2. Note to self- CARRY YOUR CANON MORE! Here we go!!
Sunday, March 16th – My cousin and I went to pick up Graham’s Birthday Chalkboard. I am in LOVE! It’s perfect and a local girl hand painted this! Doesn’t it look amazing?!
Monday, March 17th – St. Patrick’s Day! I had work so my mom took this picture of him for me…my little Irishman looks precious in his green.
Tuesday, March 18th – My mother in law was throwing out a wreath and I asked her if I could take it. I took all the flowers off and got my own. I picked up some jute ribbon and a big “R” for our last name. I then tried to re-create a wreath I saw on Pinterest. I think it came out pretty good.
After I played with that, I went in the backyard and took some pictures of Graham for his 1 year session. The feet shot is just a little sneak peek.
Wednesday, March 19th – The kids LOVE the golf cart that my parents have. Every time they pull it out, they all want to go for a ride down the drive way or in the yard.
Thursday, March 20th – My car has been acting up. The mechanic at work figured out that I had a broken motor mount. It rides much better now that it’s fixed!
When I finally got home from work, I tried to attempt a trial cake for Graham’s party. It came out ok…not the colors that I was really going for. I think I’m going to go with the same technique but pipe just plain white. I think it will look cleaner and be a little easier…hopefully.
Saturday, March 22nd – I was finishing up Parker’s birthday outfit…I finished two hours before her party! Just in time…yikes I am so last minute! ha.
Sunday, March 23rd - My mother in law found my husband’s Cabbage Patch doll from over 30 years ago. She cleaned it up and we gave it to Graham to play with. He loves it. I love the saying that “if you give a boy a doll to play with when he is younger; he just might grow up to be an amazing father”. I think that statement is so true.
Later we went to my parents house and my nephew, Clay, and Graham were playing on a little hot wheels bike. *Don’t worry, Graham did not ride this without someone holding on to him and pushing the button for him…for the picture we had him sit alone.*
I loved doing this weekly journal in pictures. I hope you did too!
