Holy Cow, Penelope Is ONE….

5 Apr

I just can’t believe it. This year has buzzed by, but at the same time, some nights feel like 10 years. Does that make sense?

I so looked forward to planning Penny’s party to make it special and memorable for her, uh…I mean me cuz really I’m sure she could not care less about all the time I put into making the pom-pom puffs perfectly puffy, or searching the Internet world for muslin bags for like two weeks (thanks shal for finally finding them for me!)

Robert worked his butt off on the food/desserts and tolerated the house being a mess for weeks building up to the party. He’s a great daddy.

So, here’s the party in pictures. Enjoy!

Little miss getting ready…

Making sure her outfit looks good…

a Happy Birthday hug from Addi!

Kelly and I made this number one with cupcake liners, thank you pinterest…

My dad made Penny this chalk board out of an old window. My mom bought the window for a whole 2 dollars!

Let’s light this cake!

She poked at the cake for a bit and then was over it…sigh. I thought that if she saw Addi eating some she would want it, but nope…

She got sooo many great gifts – thank you everybody!

Christmas & New Years…

9 Jan

What a fun first Christmas we had as a family! We had a blast watching Penny “open” gifts and so many people got her a ton of great things!!

First off, we got a special visit from Santa before Christmas came – that was fun!

As soon as Santa sat down Raelynne was on his lap ready to talk!

Addi was quite unsure and Penny was too into her toys…

Ryan showed Santa his toy and told him what he wanted for Christmas

Penny gave him a once over and pulled his beard then got a present! Thank you Santa!!

Poor Addi, we are hoping Penny won’t feel the same way next year…

I tell ya, this girl loves to swing!

Ah, Christmas morning, the old family shot. I think I took about 5 and this ones the best out of the bunch…

Investigating/eating her first gift…

Then grandma and grandpa showed up to join in on the fun…

Penny loves to read stories with grandma…

Then off to the LeSage’s for more Christmas fun…

Learning to share…

Ray, are you having fun?

Grandma Carolee got this bear for Penny and she freakin loves it! Even today she was hugging it and squealing with joy!

My dad was having fun with the girls..

Happy Birthday to little OLD me!

During the week we had a visit from Uncle Josh and Aunt Nicole. Penny is checking out one of the outfits they got her…

On New Years Eve we left the kids with the grandparents and hit the town! We went to a great restaurant in Riverside called The Salted Pig.

Kelly takes amazing pictures after two drinks…

Looking forward to what 2012 has to offer!!

Thanksgiving….

10 Dec

This year we went camping with the “Leeds” side of the family. We made the 3+ hour drive out to Refugio…

When we got there the “Martha’s” had delicious coffee and dessert for us!

Besides the fact that we all got sick on the second day – Penny had a great time. She loves to people watch, and of course spending time with grandma and grandpa…

Thanksgiving day the girls had a great idea to move all the camp tables out into the valley with a view of the beach…

Miss “stands up all the time” hanging out with daddy..

Grandma Lee is ready for Thanksgiving!

Our big group, praying before we eat…

It was a great Thanksgiving, see you in 2 years campers!
