Thanksgiving 2012

This will most likely be the shortest blog post I ever write. I'm SO busy at work and we have a ton going on with our family and social life, so here goes:

Thanksgiving 2012 was awesome! We stayed in town, had a slumber party Wednesday night at my mom's house, made pies with Auntie Em, watched football, watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, my dad came in town, we got to love on Quinn a lot, went for a walk and made the most ridiculous music video ever. What an awesome, much-needed relaxing day and weekend we had!

Pies my Margaret would be proud of! Pecan, Chocolate, Pumpkin and Chess

I'm so thankful for so many things but this year I think I have to be most thankful for my beautiful little family and all the blessings we have received in 2012. I can't believe how far we've come since our Thanksgiving in 2011.

Quinn's Cute as a Button First Birthday

Quinn's face sums it up!
We had an awesome time last weekend at Quinn's "Cute as a Button" birthday party! I'm sort of ridiculous and started planning back in September. I love hosting people at our home and more importantly I love celebrating sweet baby Q! Once again I gave my mom an idea and she made Quinn's precious button dress, and my friend Rachel (of Gingerpop Boutique) made her headband after I told her what colors the dress would be. I started making the button pinwheels and button banner a while back and I found this awesome free printable to make all the invitations, food place cards and other signs.

There's not a whole lot to write about so I'll let the photos tell the story. 


Huge shout out to Erin for being our photographer for the day!!

Quinn and Kelly are best friends at school.

We got an overflowing box full of gifts for donation. We asked people to bring that instead of a gift for Quinn. Of course a lot of people couldn't help themselves and brought gifts anyway. :)
