My Baby boy is ONE!!!

Noah had his first birthday last Saturday!! I can't believe he is a year old! Here are a few pics from his John Deere themed party!

We had the hardest time trying to find him a shirt in his size that was JD... so I did my first applique! I printed out a "1" on my computer, cut it out of a JD bandana, and appliqued it on... It isn't perfect, but for my first applique, I am proud!

Here are some pics!

My new Camera!!!!

Ok, so I finally got my new camera a couple weeks ago... and I am in LOOOVEEE!!! Seriously.. I **heart** this camera! I love that I can get some really nice snapshots of my kiddos... and that every so often you get one of those pics that you Adore! This one is one of my fav's so far....

I know it isn't anywhere near perfect, or anything... but I just love how it captured my sweet little girl. She loves to blow bubbles.... I know this will be one that I print and save forever.....

Nurses, wind & changes...

Nurses: Mom's surgery went well! All of the Nurses in the day surgery unit were just Wonderful!! (Of course I was a little overly critical since I am also a RN..) but they were really great!

Wind: Princess and I, and some friends got to go swimming for a little while yesterday... It was nice and hot, but oh-so- windy! We couldn't set up an umbrella because they would have blown away (we realized this AFTER my dad and I fished the swing OUT of the swimming pool!)

There was no shade for the little Prince and my girlfriend's baby girl, so we made them a makeshift tent! Using a sheet, safety pins, and 4 chairs! It worked well!!

Changes: Why is it that the older we get... the faster time goes by? All of a sudden you look back and realize that the last year has gone by in a flash.

And sometimes you look back and then you come to the sad realization that the people and things that you Never thought would change, do change. There are many reasons that these things change, and all are valid reasons. But still, even though you KNOW there is a reason, a good reason... it still made me cry that I had to finally face the fact...

A good laugh... since the previous paragraph is so sad (but I HAD to get it off my chest a little) I thought I would end with a little funny...

Ahhhh... The honesty of a 4 yr old... The whole family was in the beauty shop yesterday. Brian and Princess got hair cuts, and I got my eyebrows waxed... Anyhow - Someone was getting a perm - and you know how the solution smells (Blech) so Princess, in her "outside" voice (of course) says "Oh! That STINKS!!! Mommy, WHO did that stinky????!!!" LOL!!! I don't think the gal getting the perm thought it was very funny... Oops! :P

Thanks for stopping by to read a little about how I spend my days!
When I was younger, I really enjoyed keeping a journal. After having my children, I have learned the hard way that too many precious times pass by without being recorded. I am hoping that by starting this blog, I will be more dedicated to writing about all of the little things, big things, and everything else in between!
