Easter Bunny!

It is that time of year again! I am totally OCD when it comes to the Easter bunny and Santa. We always go and see the same Bunny (Mall at Millenia) and we always go see Santa at Downtown Disney.  I do this well mostly cause those are the ones that i LOVE and then I also made a little scrapbook for just Santa, Easter Bunny, and our christmas card for the year.  Then that way there are all in one spot.  Last Year this is what happened at the Easter Bunny.  
I thought for sure that Grace was not quite old enough to be scared of the Easter Bunny.  I mean really what is there to be scared of? It is just a 6 foot bunny with ears bigger than her whole body! LOL  
Well Miss Grace sat on his lap and let out a scream of pure terror!! LOL The guy was like what should we do?! Really?!?! Move her to the side and take the picture!! So I moved her next to Blase (who was thrilled that he got to hold an egg and Grace didn't).  She was fine as long as she did not remember the bunny was there.  Well that stupid bunny kept moving his hand!?!?! Really bunny?!?!  Every time he moved his had she looked over and remember that the girnorous bunny was sitting there!  Luckily, we got a picture that was not horrible!  She is not smiling but she is not screaming!  
Hopefully next year will be better for poor Grace!

Grace, Blase, and Easter Bunny

Birthday Party part 2

Sorry it has taken me so long to add this post! Ugh I have no idea where all my time goes!
So, I LOVE planning parties! Even though i become evil the day of the party trying to get everything done! Poor Jason has learned to just go hide till I am done getting everything ready. Honestly, I try to set up appointments for him so he can escape from the house and get away from me! Party day he had to go to publix to get the cake and last minute foods then out to party city to pick up balloons! I am sure that he was very grateful for that!

I of course made Grace's dress and my friend Vanessa made her a birthday bow!! I know she is such a princess! Now I have always gotten Blase an embroidered shirt for his birthdays to follow along with his theme and I have all of them saved upstairs for a quilt someday! So, Miss Grace could not be left out just cause mommy made her dress. I found a great lady/shop on Etsy and she made the cupcake with Grace's name for her dress! I loved the way it came out and she looked so stinking cute! We will be going to picture people in the next week or so for her 1 year shots!
Grace with Bobo telling everyone that she is 1!

Last month we went to one of my friends daughter's birthday parties and she had a face painter! I was so excited because I had not thought of that! For Blase's birthday parties i usually get a bounce house but for a 1 year old (jason) said that it was not appropriate! lol (if it was up to me we would have had both but I pick my battles!) Well, I found a face painter that would come to STC without charging me an arm and a leg. She was great! They kids loved it plus it gave them something to do! So they played on the swings and got their face's painted!

Grace got her face painted too!

Pirate Blase!

Grace got a TON of presents from everyone! Blase was not to happy that there were not that many toys but Mommy was so happy with all the clothes! Trust me its like ToysRus in this house! She got a few girly toys but a lot of clothes to help her wardrobe! She also got this awesome bow holder! (I have already filled it up and Brittany has to make me another one!) She was not that into opening the presents but she loved the tissue paper. So that made for lots of fun!

I personally have decided that Publix should have a frequent buyers club for their cakes! We LOVE publix cake and have had one at every event! (our wedding, birthdays, baptisms, ect) I went very simple with the cake this year! I actually brought in her dress and showed them what it looked like and i wanted the cake to match! I think they did a pretty good job! I would have liked a little more bling or something to it but whatever it still tasted awesome!

Grace also enjoyed her cake! I stripped her down cause there was no way that she was going to ruin my dress with frosting! So my little naked baby went to town on her cake! She loved it, ate some of it, but mostly squished it in her hands! I am still washing cake off that girl!

I still cannot believe that time has flown so fast this year! But we are so lucky and blessed to have such awesome family and friends in our lives!

Pinterest Inspired Decorations

I hate to be a copycat but one of my other blogger friends broke the birthday party blog into a couple different ones. So i thought i would do the same. Grace's theme was hearts and cupcakes!
I got a ton of my ideas from Pinterest! Here are just a few of the things that I made!

I wanted to do the balloon wreath but a lot of people were doing that so i wanted to do something different! So I went with bows for Miss Grace! I was really happy with the way this turned out!

I bought some tissue paper and felt over the last couple months. I made puffs to go over the arch way and then i made the felt hearts into a garland. I also saw the table clothes on the ceiling and fell in love with it!

I had some tulle that i was not really sure what do with and decided to make some puffs that separated the kitchen from the living room.

I also had tissue paper puffs to frame the window

It was an amazing party and we were so blessed to be surrounded by so many friends and family. I still cannot believe that she is one! This year has just flown by! Stay tuned for more party details!
