All things grow with love...

I can't believe that my baby is almost ONE!  I have been spending most of my time working and fixing up the house...but in my spare time I have been making birthday invites and doing a little planning to celebrate Whitney's first year.  Click below for a quick month by month view of her first year....


A cute old video...

This is from back in the day when Reagan was really into the Wiggles....circa Summer 2008

A few new craft projects

While I am getting really excited about my upcoming trip to Utah, I have also time to get involved in some new craft projects. I'm missing Whitneys Birthday when I'm gone...don't tell her...but we are going to reschedule and celebrate on Feb. 11 instead.

For school, I'm going to make the cupcakes shown. I hope mine will look as good as the Barefoot Contessa's, and with the cupcake decorator...they just might. I also bought this very practical cupcake transporting device so they will not get smashed. I'll be sure to post the finished product. It's interesting that I spent even more that 2 seconds thinking about this considering that is for a class of infants, but we all have a little Martha Stewart in us, don't we?

I also have started a new knitting project, a scarf for Reagan. It should be done before its warm out! I don't know many people that knit, but I'm hoping to find some people to help improve my skills. So far, its going well.

New pictures of the girls...

  • I'm so NOT into blogs! (0 votes)

Is this the beginning of blogging? Oh, and Happy 2009!!

I think that I should give blogging a try...see if I'm into it...I'd love to share what me and my girls (oh and Randy too) are up to!  

This can serve as my first entry since it is a great time to start...the 1st day of the new year! is going by so fast....

I'll start by reflecting on how lucky I am right now...I have the best husband around (except that he really likes to play xbox too much!) and he is the best father in the world to our two girls.  Maybe too good as now they are both obsessed with him in an abnormal way, but he created these monsters!  

I also am so lucky to have 2 beautiful little girls, special in their own ways.  Reagan is almost 2 and 1/2 and is just fun to be around.  Everyday I see her mind growing and I could not be more proud that I had a part in creating and molding her.  She is so sweet and good natured and she makes me wonder how I am so blessed to have her in my life.  Whitney is almost one and is growing (rounder) everyday.  She is in a tough stage right now where she is difficult to contain but it is fun to see how she is constantly changing.  As her birthday approaches, I can't help but to reflect on how far she has come in one year.  She is the most easy going and happy baby around...thats my Mitters!

I can't wait to see what another year will bring...and I'm sure that this will be the best one yet!  Welcome 2009...
