We're leaving bright and early tomorrow morning to spend Thanksgiving with my mom and dad in-law and extended family. Have a wonderful Holiday!

I was trying to take a few pictures of the little kids this morning on our first day of Thanksgiving break, and the first time Gracie had piggie tails. But, there was a cat in the tree and that was clearly more exciting than me with my camera.

So doing what all good photographers do, I shooed the cat away.
Tucker thought it was funny.
Gracie, not so much.
So on our first day of Thanksgiving break, I have this picture.
I think she's still mad.
Off to enjoy the rest of our day ;)

{Happy Birthday Gracie!}

My baby is one!
Wow, how fast this year has gone.
Here's some pics of her party yesterday.

(as you can see, I had fun using my Cricut to make the cute pink and green party decor!)
She loved her pinata from her Auntie Jessica & Uncle John!

And just because you never have another First Birthday, she had to have her very own M&M's!

She knew she wanted (ok, I knew she wanted) a cupcake party from the time she was 2 months old, so I've been collecting anything and everything cupcake for quite some time, and even I found the perfect dress, it had a cupcake with a 1 on it!

This was the invitation that I made. I just took our address and phone # off to post it here : )
We had such a great time, it was the perfect day!

{Happy Birthday Honey!}

Clayton is turning the Big 4-0 today and I wanted to do something special to celebrate, so tonight I'm taking him to see Celtic Thunder (one of our favorite groups) at the Nokia Theatre. He doesn't know we're going, and I can't wait 'till dinner to give him his Birthday card with the tickets in it! He is going to be so surprised! Here's one of my favorite songs to watch them sing. I love that the kilt wearing band gets into it too.

I received an email yesterday from our local mall.
Santa arrives next weekend.
I think next year I will have him help us carve our Halloween Pumpkins.

And, just because it's not a real blog post without a picture, here's a pretty idea to try before Fall turns to Winter. Quick and easty to do with candles, a few nuts and some greenery from the garden. Ours will be on the highest table in the house though since a sweet little baby took her first steps this week : )
