Sweet Baby Girl’s Closet

Our daughter Krista and her husband are expecting their first baby and its a sweet little girl. Krista and I are working on the nursery closet and we’re going to be using these to organize her little wardrobe. I created them using Shabby Miss Jenn Designs “BEE MINE” Valentine’s day scrapbooking kit and I love how they came out.

Happy 4th Birthday Alex and Elijah!

Yesterday we celebrated Alex and Elijah’s 4th birthday with a Blast Off Space party for them, friends and family joined us for a fun filled afternoon at Davey and Claire’s house. The boys were blessed by so many with wonderful gifts and birthday wishes. Our theme was inspired by two cool little astronaut suits that Dave bought the boys on our Christmas time trip to the Natural Science and History museum in New York city and what a blast we all had at their party! The invitation, cake, party favors and banner were just too cute for our space cadets who wore their astronaut suits! I created all of these party printables with Kate Hadfield’s kit “Blast Off” which was simply perfect.

Here is the cake which was inspired by our invitation, it was made by Miss Penny who made all of their birthday cakes since their first! She is so talented and surprises us with each cake we order! We were so tickled that she could recreate Kate Hadfield’s little rocket from her Blast Off kit into the cake design~

Here are the treat favor bags we made for their friends and cousins who attended the party. Claire cut out a lot of little rockets for the treat bags and they really set off the theme for the party!


Included in each favor bag was a space themed sucker, a little styro foam space shuttle glider and delicious fruit snacks and Nerds.DSC_5919-010The boys love these veggie straws so we included them in the party favor bags with twin astronauts on the gift tag.

Little astronauts need to stay hydrated while they’re playing at the birthday party, I created this little Happy Birthday label to go around the bottle.DSC_5924-013 DSC_5925-014 DSC_5926-015 DSC_5929-017 The party colors were bright and cheerful! Our space shuttle pinata was a big hit at the party!

I created a little banner for the birthday boys using Kate’s Blast Off kit elements and some string. It really set off the cake table area!

Christmas Time in New York

This holiday season Dave and I took our two youngest to NYC the week of Christmas. Alexa and I went Christmas 2009 and this was Dave and Erica’s first trip to the Big Apple. We enjoyed a leisurely week, saw Wicked and Jersey Boys, Alexa also saw Phantom of the Opera one night when Dave, Eri and I did a little Christmas Shopping. We also spent half days each at the American Museum of Natural History  and Metropolitan Museum of Art.  We all had a wonderful time, here are a few photos I shot there with my little point and shoot camera.

Royal Sonesta Teddy Bear Tea

This Christmas Season just before our trip to New York Krista and I took Ian, Kali, Alex and Eli to the Teddy Bear Tea at the Royal Sonesta in New Orleans. The children loved seeing all of our favorite holiday characters and of course Santa. They took photos with some of their favorites!
