One Year Older and Wiser Too....

Happy Birthday to Virginia!!

My baby girl is a year!! What?!?!?! Crazy.

I didn't really have much of a theme for the party other then rainbow colors and tried to keep with what the invitation looked like. I thought it turned out pretty good for how limited my budget was... seriously I am super impressed with myself. Thank you Dollar Store!

I also didn't get as many images as I would have liked but it was a little hard once everyone started to arrive. I snapped some shots of baby girl in her birthday suit eating her cake and just barely got a shot of the last piece of rainbow cake I made. I was proud of how it turned out but told Dan he couldn't have the slice till I got a shot. 

Virginia loved her party. That's all that mattered and I am so happy for all the support that we got from our friends and family members. Our little girl is well loved by everyone who came. My mom also joined in on the fun through video chat. It worked out perfect and I am so happy that she was able to participate in the event even though she was hundreds of miles away in Utah.

Baby girl made out like a Queen.

Thank you again Everyone!

 This is the invitation that i came up for her.  I love it and I decided to keep the decorations similar to the invite. 

The table is a little barren but I needed space for Virginia's young cousins to eat. My apartment is tiny and our card table was being used for all the other food and things: Hot dogs, chips, soda, plates, etc. Even though it was barren, it worked out perfect.

This was one of her many many outfits that she got as a gift from Great Grandma Cannon.

She loved that cake. She's never really had that much cake by herself before, so she threw up a little after wards.

 See, i told you she made out like a Queen. She got so many clothes. That pile is just about 6 inches tall and this is not all of it. After I snapped this shot, Virginia got some additional presents from some co-workers of mine who could not make it to the party.

Happy Birthday baby girl. I love you and I can't believe that you are one years old!

I Have The Happiest Baby EVER!!!

Spring time is not the best time for El Paso. It's warm, which is nice, but we get stupid crazy up to 55 mph wind for all of March and April. It's terrible. One day in March.. I know I am super lazy about getting these up.. it was a beautiful day. Just right for spring. 75ish degree weather and NO wind, so we decided we couldn't waste the day and  took Little Miss Virginia to the park and played on the swings. Everyone else had the same idea and the place was packed. These also count as her 11 month shots. We went around the same time she was turning 11 months.

A dog started to bark and her and she didn't really know what was going on.

It was so bright out that day so don't mind the crazy bright images. 
This was the first shot I got of her on the swing. She was just on her way back to us. She laughed and giggled the entire time. Just look at every image. 

I love her so much and yes, I really do have the Happiest Baby Ever!

I am now 27!!

Happy Birthday to me!!... and my twin.

I can not believe that i am 27 now. I sure don't feel like it. I still think that I'm 24ish... oh well... life gets better as you get older... so I've heard. 

It was a pretty good day. I was sick, which was not fun but over all I really liked my day of birth. We celebrated my birthday with the family on Sunday in between conference. I got a few gifts that were awesome and then went home and crashed cause i felt the cold/sickness coming on. Woke up Monday with a terrible head cold. Yesterday I was getting over it but still felt miserable but I didn't let that stop me from enjoying my day.

Dan got me a beautiful necklace and some cute earrings with tiny tiny diamonds in them. I love them. It's the first time Dan got me some good and nice jewelry. He also came home from school a little earlier then usual and had some roses in his hands. :) I love me some flowers. Then we went out to dinner to a place called the Japanese Kitchen. It a smaller hole in the wall place not super clean but the food was amazing! Then we went to another place for dessert called Coach's Grill, another small local place, which was much much cleaner and got what they call their Illegal Alien that consisted of.... wait for it..... 1 deep fried Twinkie, 2 deep fried Oreos, 2 deep fried Nutter Butters, 1 deep fried large brownie, with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate drizzled all over.... I know right! It was everything you could hope that it would be! We've heard about the place for about a year now and have tried going a few times but every time they were closed. If you can't splurge on your birthday when it comes to treats when can you?

Overall by 27th birthday was a success and lets see what this year has to offer me... my 26th was quiet spectacular.. lets see if it can top it. :)
