3D, Belly Buttons, and Cherry Blossoms

This is the kind of toothpaste we use at our apartment. We have used it for the past couple of tubes we have had. Well this morning, Caden wanted to know what it meant that our toothpaste was 3D. I told him that it just makes our teeth really white. "Like a 3D movie?" he asked. "Well they dont pop out or anything, they are just supposed to be really white." The conversation went on, and I wish I could remember it word for word, which is part of the reason I blog, to remember our funny conversations. I love looking back at the funny things that he has said or done over the years!


Something else,  tonight he had a band aid on his belly button. He said they had to put one on there after they took it out. "Took what out?" I asked. "My belly button." he responded like it wasn't a big deal. "Who took it out?" I questioned again. "The doctors." he said. After asking him where it went, he kind of drifted off into another conversation. Funny times though!

Well while were at it, I might as well add one more that I dont want to forget about! This one has kept me laughing. I love cinnamon toast crunch cereal, so I try not to buy it a lot because Ill eat it all. That actually happens with most cereals. Anyways, a long time ago Caden pointed something out to me that we have laughed about everytime a commercial comes on or the box is right there in front of us.

"Mama, look at their shoes!"

Yeah, so it may not be that funny to you. But I am pretty sure that if you know Caden, you pictured him saying it and it had to have made it a little funnier! Were both silly anyways! Shane and I were just saying the other night how much he is like me. I dont realize it until I do something, then I am like, "ohhhh that's where he gets it!"

Above was written earlier in the week, this morning Caden was looking at my new deodorent. He asked if he could have some and I told him he would need it soon enough. I may have let him wear it for fun if it didn't have a feminine scent. he said, "It's ok, my underarms already smell like cherry blossoms." Ha!

MC's first birthday!

I completely forgot that I drafted this posted and never finished it! Only about a week later, not too bad! Anyways, Last Saturday, we celebrated sweet Mary Charles' first birthday party! I love this precious girl, so I am sure it is no surprise that I stayed home in Sylacauga that weekend, and didnt go stay with Shane. She had a great turnout at her party and it was all just too cute!

"hi everyone! thank you all for coming!"

My favorite photo of MC and her mommy! So presh!

MC had a fun clown at her party! She played so well with the kids and made them all laugh a ton!

The clown made MC this little balloon ladybug!

Kayden Johnson had his face painted like a lion!

"This is what guys do"
That's what Caden kept telling me about he and Layne Parker playing the 3DS.

Everyone always brags on Caden when he is so good, like this night. I have to tell them that his game is like his babysitter. It keeps him calm and focused. There were mostly babies there, so he was just fine right there!! We are still sticking to the "only on weekends" game rule!

Kayden Johnson and Collin

Her invite said, "no gifts please"
Call me rude for not respecting her mommy's wishes, but there was no way I wasn't getting my girl something! Seems as if everyone else felt the same way! She ended up with too many precious gifts! I love my bag that we had her beach towel in!

Monogrammed beach towel from us!

Some of their other friends made this beautiful gift for MC. All of those photos were takken when she was 6 months old. Loved it!

Can't believe you are one, Mary Charles! I am so happy to be a part of your life and to be able to watch you grow and play almost daily. Love you sweet girl!

Wedding Wednesday- Wedding Party Style Inspiration

So as I have told you before, my best friend in high school, Ashley is designing our Bridesmaids dresses. These are two that she uploaded on Pinterest that I LOVE! I want one of each for myself, please! There will also be a one shoulder style. I cant quite decide between very pale yellow or blush for the dresses. I am leaning more toward blush I think. (very pale pink) As for the guys, I would love for them all to have the tan seersucker suits, not too sure that is possible. So I think we will settle for regular tan suits and have Caden in the tan seersucker. (I am so not good with html codes and everytime I do this post, it wont let me write under each photo so I am telling you all about them now!) I love that nail color, it is my all time fave for anything important I have to do. I think it makes every outfit look so polished and classy. Is that little girl's dress not adorbs? LOVE IT for my Palyn girl! I also like the look of the oversized men shirts, but I went with robes instead. I feel like I am giving away too  much info in this post, like nothing that day will be a surprise. These are just inspiration photos, not the exact dresses and such from our day.

Still been keeping busy with the planning! Met with our fabulous cake lady last week. Made decision on my cake table, but not groom's table. Im needing ideas to mix Caden a cake in with Shane's. They dont share any of the same interest so Im still searching for the right ones. I got a few deliveries at Shane's last week, so that was fun! Palyn's flower girl dress has been ordered. I need playlist suggestions, please! I am lost on what music to play. Shower dates have been settled, just working on the list for my sweet hostesses. Sweet Love informed me last week, that our honeymoon to La Playa Mujeres is a done deal! That excited me to no end! I havent gotten stressed out over things yet, I hope I stay this laid back. I want to remember that although it is a HUGE day, it is just one day. No need to miss it all by freaking out! Hope everyone is having a great week!
