The most current weeks... still working on loading pictures for Weeks 8 and 9. They will be coming next! I'm really enjoying this album! I can't wait to look back at this album when 2009 has come to an end.

I'm catching up on all my weeks. I've been very studious about taking the pictures and journaling for each day. I love that the whole family has gotten involved. Everyone has suggestions for the "picture of the day!"

On Sunday we couldn't stand it any longer... one of our favorite things to do as a family is head to the park. Even though it was a little chilly on Sunday, we bundled up and headed out to the local park. RJ loved running from slide to swing to teeter-totter and repeat. Payton loved the swings and looked like the swings could have put her to sleep. We are ready for Spring... and warmer temps!

Can't wait to order this cute outfit for RJ this spring/summer! I think he will look oh so cute in this... Chez Ami parties are booked this week! Head over to Chez Ami website to check out the adorable spring styles. (The outfit choices for Payton are too numerous... I'm still working on narrowing that list down! :)

Idea came from here... Jennifer McGuire usually always has some great ideas for card making. Thanks for the inspiration.
Thank You card idea came straight from Becky Higgins in the February Creating Keepsakes issue.

for a couple of weeks now... it's far from perfect but I played
with the colors and lighting a bit to make it appear kind
of vintage. It's okay, but I'm still learning. I kind of like
the effect the picture has now.

Happy Birthday Payton! I'm having a very hard time believing my little girl is 1! She had fun playing with the cake - she just kept dunking the candle in and out of the cake! We are having her birthday party on Sunday for the family to celebrate with her. She is having quite the time already!

Found inspiration for this while thumbing through the February issue of Creating Keepsakes. RJ and I went in the backyard exploring for a tree limb, he also helped me spray paint it white. He thought that was "really cool!" Then I added the cupcakes and hearts from patterns I had and using my trusty cricut. Covered a bucket I already had to fit our theme. It turned out cute and will hopefully be a good decoration to add to the little cupcake's first birthday party!!
