Emmett's First Birthday

Yesterday we celebrated Emmett's first birthday!  We had a small car themed party at our house.
Everyone had a great time.  For lunch we had bbq chicken sandwiches and cupcakes for desert.
Emmett did a great job of staying awake but finally after opening the gifts he just couldn't do it anymore. We did the pin the number on the car game, a race car game, a ball in the bin game, and the big boys played kick and throw the ball while the little kids blew bubbles in the back yard.
 Get ready for lots of pictures below.

 Emmett loved eating the card the most lol.

 My mom was the biggest help of all!  Without her we would not have had it all done in time.

 Emmett and Kaylee

 Kids on the ceiling!

 Emmett loved the bubbles! All the kids loved them.

A really awesome day!

Birthday Eve

Well tonight is the night before Emmett's first birthday, its really hard for me to believe it has been a whole year.  Last year at this time I was sleeping and getting ready to wake up with contraction pains.  Crazy!  Anyways we spent the whole day getting ready for the small party we are having tomorrow and I know Emmett is excited.  After his nap today he came down and saw the decorations and just looked around and started talking (its jiberish, but for him its talking).

He is really not a baby anymore which makes me a little sad, but also very happy.  With every stage there has been something new and fun happening and there will always be something to look forward to.  Little Emmett you have changed our lives!

 Here he is a year ago 

and here he is now.

Weekend and Valentines Day

 The week flew by because we have been really busy.  This picture cracks me up cause Emmett is growing so fast his smaller clothes barely fit.  I loved these overalls and sadly he didn't get enough wear out of them.

 First Valentines Day! Took me about 20 min to get a picture of him smiling.

Worked on some new art.
 Sunday we spent the day getting flowers and working on the yard.  Grant made this beautiful flower box.

The yard looks great.

Park Time

Today we went to the park.  Now that Emmett can really walk on his own, the park is so much more fun.  This park was awesome because it has soft ground so when he does fall he is okay. 

It was weird watching him walk around on his own with other kids his size with his shoes on.  It was like seeing a big kid.  He absolutely loved it.  I can see how interacting with other kids will get interesting, one little kid tried to give a kiss that started turning into a bite lol, but I know kids are kids.

Drive that train!
PS it was soo freaking hot!  I was sweating!  Next park day I will wear summer clothes.

Abstract Art

We have an ugly wall fan in our living room that we don't use anymore and we don't want to spend the money to remove it so I wanted to come up with a way to cover it.  I decided to do a piece of abstract art because we have so much art of "things" landscapes and pictures that I just wanted something simple that would bring in some color.

Grant is going to make a custom frame out of reclaimed wood, that I plan to paint bright white.

I can't wait till its up on the wall!
