Grant’s Birthday 2/15/12

Well Grant’s birthday is the day after Valentines day so I always have a busy week!! This year I planned everything for his party! I was so proud of myself. I got everyone together to go eat at Leonardo’s at 6:30. Then we were going to come back to my house since it was so close and have cake and ice cream followed by presents. It was a nice evening and the food was yummy!! I hope he enjoyed it!

Valentines Day 2/14/12
This Valentines Day was very low key but very special! Grant and I decide to stay in and cook since we knew it would be crowded anywhere with out reservations. He came over after I got off work and we were going to do gifts first and then start cooking!! I had his all set up nice and neat and he loved it!! He had all mine in a box with little special notes on it! (Hint The Vow) We cooked steaks, potato fries, and I had asparagus and he had green beans. After dinner we put in a movie and relaxed on the couch! It was a nice romantic evening!!

Patrick and Courtney English!!

Mr. and Mrs. English

Saturday night I went to my friend Courtney’s wedding reception. Her and Patrick were married on Jan. 21st at a private ceremony just for family. I was so thankful to be invited to her wedding reception. It was a fun night. It was at a country club off of Grants Mill Road. I am not sure the name of it. We enjoyed wonderful yummy food and cake. They had a live band, which was Courtney’s uncles band. They were fun and entertaining. I enjoyed catching up with everyone and relaxing. Courtney looked beautiful in her white dress. She and Patrick look so in love and I am so happy they found each other. I wish them nothing but happiness.

Congratulation Patrick and Courtney English

Brantley Turns 2!!!

One of my best friends little girls turned 2 on January 28th. She had her birthday party on Saturday. She had it at a place called Party on the Move in Bessemer. It was perfect for her age. It had blow up things for the kids to play on and then a side area with other toys. All the kids seemed to enjoy themselves. After about an hour of playing the kids all gathered around while Brantley opened her gifts. I must say that Brantley is a pro when it comes to unwrapping gifts. She did a great job for a 2 year old. After the kids played for a little bit more they gathered in a party room where we sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY and enjoyed pizza and ice cream before all the kids packed up to go NAP!! I am so thankful to be included in my friends children's lives. Even though I do not have any of my own I love to watch their little ones grow and celebrate events in their lives.
Thanks Allison for inviting me meant a lot!!

Baby Payton!

Payton Elizabeth Bell

Last night I went to meet another friend’s new addition!! My friend Tiffany and her husband welcomed their first little girl on Monday January 30th. I went up last night to meet little Miss Payton. She is so little and amazing!! She was asleep the entire time I was holding her, but she opened her eyes just as I was about to leave and I snapped a quick picture! Tiffany had a great labor and delivery, but now she is sick with all the crud that’s going around so she is staying a little longer so that she can fully recover before her sweet little family goes home. I know that Chris and Tiffany will be amazing parents and give their sweet little girl so much love and guidance in life. I wish them every bit of happiness to come!

Congratulation Chris and Tiffany!!

Well I love to craft and so I had another opportunity to make something. I decided that since my cousin was having a baby girl I would surprise her with one of my burlap door hangers. It took me a while to decide exactly what I wanted to do. I finally decided to make a cross. I traced it out on burlap, then cut and stuffed it! Then I spray painted it pink and have added white dots and then the initials! I think it turned out so cute! I also made a blue one with brown dots and the initials for my friend Amy who works with me she also had her third little boy today. I will post about him when I meet him this week. Hope you like them!
