Dinner Parties

I have dreams of hosting elegant dinner parties including:
  • a beautifully decorated table
  • all of my closest friends
  • a 3 course meal
  • gourmet food (also attractively presented)
  • lively conversation
  • amazing desserts
  • and I'd do it all wearing one of these adorable aprons

aprons found here

But then I remember:
  • That sort of thing only happens in the movies
  • My kitchen is about 5'x5'
  • AND I can't cook.... (Problem)
I guess I'll just have to get one of these CUTE aprons and pretend, and possibly practice my cooking skills on Beau.

I'm Thankful For...

  • The best baby in the world (seriously, he is SO well behaved).
  • The most amazing, handsome, helpful, and understanding husband.
  • Both are healthy.
  • Wonderful family.
  • Parents who would do anything for us.
  • Fun outings with friends.
  • Spontaneity (and those who go along with it). Keeps life exciting.
  • Prayer.
  • Beau having a good steady job.
  • Warm weather, Finally!
  • And so much more. But today, those are on the top of my list.

My new bedding is coming tomorrow! I'm so excited. I have a serious case of kid on Christmas Eve...Can't even sleep.
I'm redecorating my whole house, starting with our bedroom.

Of course, some of our crazy boy.
I swear Joshua's getting more and more fun every day! I love it! It truly is crazy how fast he has grown up and how quickly he learns new things. Everything seems to come quickly for him except for anything involving eating. He's been a pill to feed since day one. He FINALLY has caught on to eating rice though. We had been trying for over a month and he wouldn't even open his mouth for the spoon! (it was super frustrating actually) Then on Friday night I made a miraculous discovery! If I put the rice on a graham cracker and offer it to him, he eats it right up! It's fantastic! Now he eats loads of rice and even green beans off of a graham cracker

*The other day Joshua was taking a nap when I heard funny noises through the monitor. When I went up stairs to check on him, this is what I found. He was talking right into the speaker. I guess it's time to find a new spot for the monitor.
*Eating his first french fry.
*They are both SO cute!

Fancy Nancy

For Kate's 2nd Birthday Beau and I got her a Fancy Nancy dress-up outfit. I LOVE Fancy Nancy! I think she's adorable. When Kate put it on she said she was going outside to fly now. It was funny.
