Happy 2nd Birthday Adeline!

Last Sunday we celebrated Adeline's 2nd birthday. Her actual birthday was the 19th, but we decided to celebrate with friends and family on Sunday. Adeline doesn't really have a favorite character yet so I decided to do a Minnie Mouse party for her. Now she talks about Minnie all the time!

I made use of my Silhouette Cameo to make some decorations, I only wish I'd had more time to do more. The possibilities are endless.

Adeline watched for all her friends to arrive!

Lots of friends and family came to visit!

Lots of yummy food that was a big hit!

Adeline was so happy at her birthday party, total 180 from last year! Last year she didn't get to nap before her party so was a bit cranky. This year she was still sleeping as her guests started to arrive!

Say Cheese!

Time to blow out the candle! She couldn't quite figure it out, so Alan helped.

For her Birthday we decided we wanted to get her a kitchen. And no we do not just go to the store and buy a kitchen...we build it! So Alan and his dad used these plans and built Adeline her very own kitchen! Then I painted it and used my Silhouette cameo to make all the little details on the stove. I also used Chalkboard paint on the fridge so she can write on it. I may still make a couple little things to put on the side of the fridge (menu, clock, etc.).

Here is Adeline seeing it for the first time!

Lots of Adeline's friends came to play!

Once everyone left we opened up a few presents and played with them. Adeline loves her baby doll, Sophia (Sopa in Adeline speak). 

Thank you to all the Family & Friends that came and celebrated Adeline's Birth with us. She is truly an amazing little girl that I am thankful for every single day.

Halloween 2013 - Pumpkin Time!

We waited until the last possible moment to carve our pumpkins! We've had our pumpkins for a few weeks from Joe's Trees and haven't gotten around to carving them. Life is pretty busy right now between Alan's work, my work, and spending all our extra time with Miss Adeline.

Alan and I carved a pumpkin while Adeline finger painted hers. We all had fun!

We attempted an outside family shot, well at least I got the most important person in the shot!

Summer Fun with Adeline

I am way behind on the blog. That is what happens when you work full time and spend what free time you have chasing after a toddler! Adeline has been growing leaps and bounds and amazes us every day.

On May 23, 2013 Alan and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. Alan and I went to Kabuki for date night.

Sometimes when Alan is working at night, Adeline and I will have date night. This was Adeline's first trip to Shake 'n Steak!

Adeline loves to play outside and sit in her chair!

I bought this sun shade for the yard since we don't have a lot of shade, and Adeline has loved playing in it!

Sometimes she seems like a tomboy, but she is still a girly girl.

Marie and Adeline are a pair! They don't play together yet, but Adeline loves Marie!

Personalized cups for Tots and Mom

I had a little bit of time during Adeline's nap on Sunday to do some crafting! I did nothing but craft during her 2 hour nap and it was great! I made a few things for Adeline and a couple for some of her friends.

Adeline is only 21 months but she does eat sandwiches sometimes but usually we'll just put snacks in this container. The other are for her friends Grayson & Eliza.

I found a 4 pack of these cups at Target and decided to make them more fun! They already have same color dots all over so I just used different color and size dots to make it more fun. Adeline already knows Minnie Mouse so I know she'll love that cup!

I found this cup at Walmart and loved the Zebra print.I only wish I'd had hot pink vinyl to use instead of the pale pink!

If you are interested in any sort of vinyl project let me know. I love doing custom orders!

Memorial Day - 2013

We spent Memorial Day together as a family of 3. It was great. We had no plans so just went with where the day took us. We started out taking a hike to Roaring Run but picking up some Bojangles on the way! Adeline was great and enjoyed the hike.

After we went for a hike I thought Adeline needed some run around time so we stopped at Troutville Park for some fun.

Then we went home and had water table fun!

It was a great day and loved spending the day with my little family. Adeline is such a great baby!

Beach - June 2013 - Part 2

I forgot the following two pictures from the previous post. These are at the Aquarium.

We only had a couple days so we made the most of it and headed to the beach as soon as we got back from the Aquarium.

All dressed up and ready to head out to dinner!

Fell asleep on the way to dinner!

My baby and I!

Daddy and Adeline

The whole family
