Lucy's 1st birthday party

I still have a couple more days before I have to face the reality that she's 1. But we celebrated her today. The party was at my parent's new house which was supposed to have a finished pool. But with the million buckets of rain we have been getting daily, they didn't quite make the Memorial Day deadline. It was a fun time nonetheless. 

I'm just going to post the details for my in laws and my future reference.  I can't tell you how many things I've forgotten and had to look up on this old blog. 

This was her smash cake. 

This was the real cake. The best. Everyone's favorite strawberry creme cake from Briar Rose. Appropriate for Miss Lucy because strawberries are about her favorite thing to eat these days. 

The cookies were fabulous. A friend makes them and she is so talented!!

A sign I painted that says "Lucy Kate is ONE". 

Custom made flamingo dress just for the occasion. (It's currently soaking to get out strawberries and pink icing ��)

And I just love this picture of her with my daddy. He wore pink for the flamingo party. 
Sister was not shy about eating that smash cake!!

And that's the end. I cannot that God enough for this little blessing. She is just the sweetest little addition to our family!

A day at the Ballpark!

Yesterday we decided to go to a NWA Natural's baseball game. It was a gorgeous day and we had a lot of fun. 

We weren't sure how Lucy would do. But as usual, she was a trooper. 

Sinker, Strike and no tears from anyone!  Shocking!!

This is about 3.5 hours past her nap time and she's still going strong!
And now she's out. 

We will go back in a few weeks with the girls' school and a few times this summer. Especially now that we know Lucy can handle it!

10 months

This crazy girl is 10 months old. 

She mastered crawling and then decided cruising looked more fun. Now she walks behind this little push toy. She says mama, dada, gaga (for Greta) and just learned the sign for "more". She has 4 teeth.
My little vampire. 

She's a giant girl-- off the charts in height and 80% in weight. She's 100% sweet as pie. We love her off the charts!!

Tooth Fairy

Margaret had a loose tooth and was complaining about it so we were waiting at the dr office and I asked if she wanted me to just pull it and she said yes. So I pulled it. And then it bled and bled and bled and she cried and cried and cried. She talked funny for 3 days afterward. But the tooth fairy came and left her some money and all is well. 


Both girls are playing basketball this year and it's been fun watching them. This is Margaret's first time playing and she loves it. 

New Years Eve

We just laid low and went out to dinner  and ice cream with friends and checked out the retro arcade (Mark's favorite new place!) then came home for sparkling grape juice and bed!

And New Year's Day alway requires cornbread and black eyed peas!

Margaret's birthday

Since we had her party early in the month, we just went out to eat on her actual birthday. Mexican, as always, was her choice but our favorite place was closed for a private party. So we went to a different place and I had hoped they did the sombrero/whipped cream thing, too...
And luckily, they did!!
