Happy Valentines Day

Chloe, Gary and I had a great Valentines day, we didn't do too much just had a brunch with our church friends from Iowa Falls, it was so great. here are some pictures that I couldn't resist taking.
(flowers are from Gar, our dear friend Cathy arranged them.) I love them!

dinner date any one?

So what have I been doing to keep me not going crazy over this crapy weather... expecially when I can't visit any of my friends?

That's right I made table settings, yes all 6 off them for the spring, season... I really think this has brightened up our table and I love it! I am impressed how the place mats turned out since I didn't have a pattern and I learned how to bind with no one helping me or telling me the right way to do it. So I am pretty proud of my sewing skills. I also made coasters from left over fabric and I made napkins out of my left over binding fabric.

So any one want to come to dinner? the table is ready to go and I would love some company... just give me a little notice... and bring some good weather so I can get out of the HOUSE!

Chloe 1 year appoitment

Chloe is our little skinny mini! I never thought I would say that but she is now just under 18lb (she didn't even gain a pound over the last 3 months! and she is 30 inches long... The doc is not to worried about her... I need to give her more butter and milk and cheese. ummm a butter diet.

So I finished my first ever sewing project with a pattern and everything went well, ok well might be an understatement, I learned a lot of things, firstly measure twice and cut once, how to replace a needle, how to put in a zipper and read the directions untill you can almost memorize them... I also found that youtube can teach you just about anything you need to know (thanks youtube and those that submitted sewing tutorials) with all that new found knowledge, this was a cutest thing I have created for me! For me this was so fun! I felt so impowered buy knowing that I could make something that I had all the creative power. It was so fun to pick out fabric that worked well with eachother, and then preparing the fabric was so fun! I loved how the pinks look it makes me smile and I know that, this is my first real sewing project, nothing is perfect, nope not even the easy parts like the handles but I will purse this purse around with a smile knowing that I did all by my self!

Chloe's one!

Chloe's Birthday Cake was so fun to make, she was able to nap for most of the decorating. It has been a long time since I have decorated a cake, can you tell?

Chloe's Birthday decorations were amazing I love how it all came together nicely. The dot Garlands were by far the most impressive, along with her birthday banner I made.

Here is our Birthday Girl in Action, she played musical hearts with Grandma's help! notice the cheeto in her hand? yep she loves them, and can't get enough of them. I blame Grandma for that, Thanks Gma!

She didn't know what to think about her cake, she wasn't sure is she should just dig into it or not, this was at the end off her cake eating. She was too busy wanting to know what other people were doing when she was stuck in her high chair! in fact, she starting screaming as soon as I left to go get her a wet wash cloth to wash her up. I was really surprised she didn't want much to do with her cake.

this her on her Birthday we didn't go out at all on her Birthday, it snowed all day on Friday!

This is her Birthday Party at Home, Her friends from church came and celebrated with her we are truly blessed to have such wonderful family and friends to help celebrate her birthday!

Chloe loves her tutu and wants to wear it all the time, she also loves her unicorn she can get off all by her self and is learning to get on it all by her self...she is getting so mobile now!

my Favorite outfit she got from her birthday is this Osh Kosh denim skirt(thanks jd) with the snow boots Gma bought for her! I think she looks like our little rock star... watch out she'll be planing on the piano uncle joe bought her for her birthday soon!

I still can not believe how she is one! now she is wanting to walk, with out my hands, yes she took her first steps on Saturday after the party in Iowa falls! I am still amazed at how fast she is learning. I will have to get some pictures and video's of what she is doing. I taught her the sign for TOUCH DOWN for the super bowl this past week and every time we say yay she throws her hands up in the air and squeals and then claps, it's the cutest thing I have taught her. she is also learning to bang on everything and make noise with everything! we are in for alot of fun this next year!

Thank you to every one who has made Chloe's Birthday so special! It means so much to Gary and I for all your love and support over this first year, this year wouldn't have been so easy and gone by so fast if it wasn't for all your help!
