A Spidey Birthday Party!

I impressed myself with this party. I was 8 1/2 months pregnant, and we pulled it off with the help of our family. I think I slept for 2 days after my son turned 3. How fun this party was! Wonder what he'll choose for his 4th...

Hand made party favor bags!

A cardboard city!

The utensils were held together with spider rings.

I just loved the table!

A World Cup Party

We did it. We hosted a world cup party. Here are a few pics from the event! I printed all the country flags and had them hung around the house, though I didn't snag any fun photos of them. Oh well!

The spread. There was food. Lots of delicious food!

Cupcakes with the flags of all the World Cup 2014 Teams!

Seven Layer Dip made to look like
half of a soccer field. Yum!

Quiche and Empanadas!

A Baby Shower and Mother/Father Blessing

Recently I had the privilege of co-hosting a baby shower with a very crafty friend, and while I handled having a clean house and some yummy food, she handled all the decor. It was a fun time, and I think it looked terrific!

The beads were to be strung together onto a necklace for the
mother-to-be to wear while in labor. 

Guests wrote special notes of encouragement and blessing
for the parents-to-be to read during labor.

Preparing for #2

I'm so delighted with our maternity photos! I hope you'll enjoy seeing a few of our favorites here, too. All the credit goes to Emmaleigh Travis with CQ Photography, and you can find her on Facebook here. She was *great* to work with, and she took all the ideas we brought with us and brought them to life.
