Well, it is true... Our sweet little first born angel turned 3 September 15th. I can hardly believe she's been with us for three years, but at the same time I can not remember life without her. I am so proud to be her Momma and love her more than I knew was possible. Ok, enough gushy stuff, and onto the fun. This year we did a little party for her, well I guess a big, Little party. :) It really was a lot of fun for me, and I know she enjoyed it. The next day she said, "I really, really want to turn free again." Made all my hard work worth it! Oh, and I'm sorry but I will go ahead and warn you that there will probably be several posts on this topic, and several pictures to go along with it. :) I must say I initially struggled to come up with a theme since we would have boys and girls ranging from 8 months to 6 years. Grace had a new idea everyday so I was clueless to what she really wanted. It wasn't until I saw these adorable outfits on clearance that I got the idea for our fun theme! The darling outfits were too cute to pass up, so I decided to go with a nautical sailing theme, and a girly version of course! It's still pretty warm here in September so we were able to use a blow up pool and keep most of all the
chaos fun outside. :)
Here she is waking up on her birthday to a room filled with balloons. A pinterest idea I knew I had to do!
Our peanuts in there sweet little outfits that inspired it all.
A little "photo booth"
Testing it out with some very adorable models
This "Sailboat" was almost the death of me!
More to follow, I promise!

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." This past Sunday we dedicated Grace Taylor and Bennett at our church. It was truly special and I am so very thankful for my two gifts. Thank you. Thank you.

Ahhhh 8 months!! Still in denial over here... It's hard to believe he will be crawling soon. Actually really soon. Everytime I sit him up he lunges forward on all fours. He is still easiest, best baby I've ever seen. No teeth yet, which I prefer for many reasons. ;) He is 20 pounds exactly and still our little meatball! We've got another milestone coming up. Grace Taylor turned 3 last Saturday. We had a lovely party for her and she had so much fun.

This year we were lucky to cruise down to Palm Beach Shores for a week with the one and only Bennie Bear! Grace Taylor stayed with Lolly and Pop (TJ's parents). She had a blast and was the sweetest girl when we picked her up. We decided then, that if we are blessed with more children we will always take them on a trip by themselves. It was so valuable for us to spend the one on one time with little Bennett. I know he enjoyed the undivided attention too. I will start with this one because he is so stinking cute! We arrived the same time as Hurricane Isaac :) Trying not to blow away He enjoyed dinners out We even took the lil one to a movie He must have liked "The Odd life of Timothy Green" because he stayed awake the whole time. We played inside for the first few days, but Bear didn't mind Finally the Sun came out! Played a little golf Napped on the beach My sweet boy! Peek a boo Prettiest spot in town My two favorite boys! Us at the Breakers Love this one of Bear How cute is he? I think he had fun with us Love you Bennie boo boo bear.
