bailee is turning 3 and shelby is 1.
mama had a prior obligation, so it was just the boys for awhile.
then i showed up with camera in tow as the party was winding down.
i completely missed getting a picture of shelby.
she was resting from hard core partying.
here are a few images i did catch:
august is going for the gangsta look!
i wanna wear the hat, but not really, so i think i'll scream instead!
well, that's what i did.
i totally stole the idea from another blog.
i am really not that creative, just pretty good at copying.
i used witch stitching (i think that's the name) to iron the fabric on.
then dusted off the sewing machine,
so i could stitch the edges.
yes, i had to pull out the directions.
its been at least 3 years since i have sewed anything.
the bobbin broke and i almost resorted to hand stitching.
i was fully prepared to be up all night to finish.
yes, i was waiting until the last minute to make birthday gifts.
no fretting though.
i know my sewing ability and bought back up gifts.
my helper was drooling over the new and fancy toy.
and the final product:
best buddies playing
youngest of the 3 older kids
huntley - looking just like daddy
thank you to all of our wonderful friends for looking up numbers,
on the way home we saw the biggest turtle ever.
she was born on may 8th, just one hour and 10 minutes shy of dad's birthday.
we got to meet her one week later.
august wasn't quite so interested in riley, but loved her backyard.
and playing ball with her daddy.
lookout mountain is right out their front door.
thanks for letting us visit.
we can't wait to see her again.
august will have to share his pacifier next time!
