Parker's party was a success!  I think everyone had fun and the birthday boy was super cute!  He hadn't had a nap and it was hot outside, but he smiled, ate cake, and opened presents like a big boy!  The only problem was that there are no really good pics!  I'm still bitter about this...even though it's been 2 months!  Here are some of the good ones from the day...

Here are the cake push ups!  I was so proud of them.  Apparently they were pretty good because they were all eaten!

He didn't get too messy.  He has texture issues when it comes to touching his food...he gets that from his dad!

He loved his lawn mower!  He wouldn't slow down long enough for us to take the tags off.

Here's the after party.  I was really impressed with Tim and myself because we had it all cleaned up 2 hours after everyone left.  Then we went to bed...early!

We're so blessed to have this little man in our lives.  He is nothing but joy!

Pins I can Can Check Off the List

With my addiction to Pinterest in full speed due to the big b-day party for the little man, I've decided I should create a new board of pins that I can actually say I've done!

For Easter, I made this incredibly delicious...and cream sandwich cake. I've made it twice now, and it keeps getting even better. Here's my version...

and here's my inspiration

Speaking of the's what came today in the mail.
The push up holders for the cake came as well, but they're not as cute for pics!

Less than 2 Weeks

I can't believe that Parker will be one in less than 2 weeks. Time really does fly! Just like last year, his birthday is while we're on Spring Break, so I should have lots of time to get things ready for the Par-tay! It's going to be an Uno know, because he's turing Uno. I've made the invitations, but we haven't printed them yet. Of course, this is a great chance to spend hours on Pintrest pinning away at birthday ideas! The best part about this theme is that we can just go with primary colors! Here are a few of the ideas I'm thinking about right now...

Throwing parties for little people is so much more fun than throwing parties for 30 year olds! :)

Easter Pic

Well, I'm still having issues uploading more Easter pics, so I'll just put this super cute one on here...

First, let's pretend that it hasn't been a year since I updated, on to business!

We had a wonderful Easter weekend. What a great time of friends and family, but more importantly to celebrate our risen Savior! I was thinking yesterday how exciting it will be to share the Easter story with Parker when he's old enough to understand.

Here are some highlights from the weekend...
On Saturday, we had a fun egg hunt at Tim's parents' house with his sisters and their families. Parker was getting sleepy when we went outside, but he was a good sport...except when we tried to hold his hands for a cute picture. Instead we got a fit on film! We always have tacos, and they were as delicious as ever. I made an ice cream sandwich cake, which was pretty good too, if I do say so myself!
Saturday night was prom, and Tim and I went for a little while. It's always fun to dress up and have a hot date. We went to Outback for dinner when we left.

Over night the Easter Bunny came and left us each a fun basket with lots of yumminess for Tim and myself!

After a great church service, we came home and had our own little photo shoot in the front yard. We got several cute shots of Parker and even managed some of the 3 of us!
Then, we headed to my parents' house for lunch and a little hanging out/ napping time!
What a great weekend!

I'm having issues adding more pics, so I'll try on another post later!
