Leah's Turning 1!

I am soo thankful to finally have these all mailed out!
Every naptime for the past 2 days was devoted to writing out the invitations to Leah's 1st Birthday Party. That was a hard job for me, realizing my baby girl was a year old already.

But now my thoughts have sobered at the fact that I have a month to plan this big festivity. 
This is my inspiration...
I love the flower box centerpiece and the hanging flower/garland in the pic above.
How beautiful!
Love that they are serving pink lemonade in mason jars!
Why didn't I think of this before? Perfect for serving your silverware.

My idea is a garden party in greens and pinks. Adding in some girly-ness with a few ruffles here and there, lots of food, and even better company!

Enjoying Warmer Weather

I'm soo thankful the weather has been so nice around here. Josiah is always itching to go outside and burn some energy, so it's been hard to contain him lately since it's been so rainy.
Brandon was also able to burn all that extra energy he didn't have by pushing Jo on the tractor.
Leah and I played in the grass while the boys were hard at work.

The next day was just as beautiful so Leah practiced standing and Josiah played his favorite game, Throw-the-ball-in-the-tree!

We finished off the weekend by spending Mother's day with our beautiful Mom's, celebrating my Great-Grandpa's 99th Birthday, and finally... Leah taking her FIRST STEPS (on Mother's Day of all days!)!!! What a blessing!
God is soo Good!

The Duggars: A Love that Multiplies

These families are such an inspiration to me. Especially since we are a young family, just starting to find our 'niche' with parenting. If you've ever watched the Duggars on their show 19 Kids and Counting, you know that all they do is for the glory of God. Mrs. June Fuentes at A Wise Woman posted about their latest interview on their book A Love That Multiplies. I would suggest going to check it out.

But while you're here, check out this video from the Bates Family, close friends of the Duggars. Enjoy!
