almost 2




So my baby is almost two. Her birthday isn't actually till the 29th but because of busy summer schedules we had a little party for Gabby tonight. It was so much fun...and I just can't believe how grown up she's becoming! We went with a "Dora" theme...she loooves Dora. She was so cute and was totally into opening the presents this year. Payton was awesome...I was sure she would freak out, wanting the presents and attention, but not at all. She was just happy to be part of the fun and was a big help to Gabbs with the presents and stuff. I was so proud of her...guess I should have a little more faith in my children, hey?












Oh, and this is why I don't do cake decorating...'cause my sister does it waaaaaaay better! Look at this cake!! Who does this?? Gabby loved it and I was so sad to cut it up. Thank you so much Karly!!! (oh, and it was yummy, too!)





This little video of Gabby is so cute...she was so embarrassed when we were all singing "Happy Birthday" to her. She dealt with it by pulling her hair, so funny!! (Have I mentioned how completley opposite my 2 children are?)

So anyways, that was her little party. Thank you so much for coming, family! This was a big weekend. Gray and I spent the day yesterday redoing Gabby's room (finally!). No more crib...she's in a big girl bed now and is doing great. I was putting it off big time, but it is time to let her grow up a bit. It's always the mama's that have the issues, not the children, right? I'll share pictures soon. I also got called to the Relief Society Presidency in my ward, so I'm feeling overwhelmed but excited. It is time for a change for me, so I'm looking forward to being with the sisters in my ward...but like I said, totally clueless and overwhelmed. Ah, well...it'll be good!!



The weather's supposed to be good this week so I'm planning on being outside as much as we can...summer is almost half over already! AAhhhh!!


Be back soon,
T:)

Soooo cute!!! It's hard to believe how quickly these babies grow into little kids. Makes you sad at the same time. Can't wait to see Gabbs room :)

I just loved the video - she's so lucky to be surrounded by so much love! I just loved all the cheering when she blew out the candle. So sweet. My youngest turns 2 next month - you gave me some great ideas (i.e. those cute cupcakes!!).

And you'll be fantastic in the R.S. presidency. Are you Enrichment Counselor? You'll be invaluable to your Relief Society president, and all the women in your ward. It's so exciting!!

Gotta love Dora. :) Karly sure has a talent with these cakes. Wow. I love Calico Critters. The girls look so cute in matching dresses & flowers in hair. My mom always used to dress me & my sister the same too. I love to see the pictures of us looking the same.

Wow, lots has happened since I've missed church twice. I need to catch up. You'll be awesome in RS. Your talents translate to any organization in the church. Hopefully you're in charge of enrichment. :)

That first picture is so adorable!! (they all are, but I really love that one) My little Katie Shae will be 2 in January and we've already been thinking about a Dora party too, she loves Dora. :)

And she was so excited watching that little video clip that have on here! She was laughing and clapping her hands when Gabby blew out the candle :)
