The Day Daddy Went Shopping…

I’ll never forget it…We hadn’t lived in our new city very long. Maybe a month or so. One of the boys was sick, so we stayed home from church that Sunday! Matt had gone to church and then to lunch afterwards with some families from church. But, after lunch, he decided to do a little shopping for his baby girl on the way. Due to the move and the craziness of life, he hadn’t done a lot of shopping for her like he had done for the boys. But, this day, he was going to find something JUST for her.

He went to Janie and Jack…and apparently the sale rack was forbidden…because he came home with this…IMG_1752He proudly opened the bag and smiled as I took out each (regular priced) piece. He thought it was SO pretty…and so did I. But, then, I saw this…recieptAnd this Momma almost had a heart attack! He had spent $102.84 on his unborn baby girl…on ONE outfit! I gasped…and then laughed! I can’t say I have outfits that cost $102.84! When I proceeded to look shocked, the Daddy that is apparently already wrapped around his little girl’s finger said, “Is that too much? I don’t know what little girl’s clothes cost!?” I laughed again! Mercy me…we’re in trouble! {And, I talked him in to just keeping the outfit…the sweater and bow went back to the store!}

But, on Sunday, July 20th, I surprised him by bringing his BlissPriss to church all dressed in his outfit. She could finally wear it, and she was stunning…and he was oh so proud!
Three months and before 004
And, it’s still the MOST expensive thing that hangs in her closet!

Nash’s World Cup Birthday!!!

Ever since the excitement of the World Cup, this boy was CERTAIN that he wanted a WORLD CUP BIRTHDY! Needless to say, his soccer-lovin’ Daddy was in heaven! It all started with the invitation design and the rest quickly fell into place! Since the World Cup was on constantly at our house, the party was even more anticipated than normal. And, when July 6th finally arrived, my BIG four year old was beside himself!!!

After church, we excitedly put the finishing touches on the party and anxiously awaited our guests!…Nash is FOUR!!! 030_thumb[2]

The requested Soccer Jersey cake was a join effort. Mammer did the majority and Matt and I helped with a few details. Despite its flaws, Nash LOVED it…

Sadly, after about an hour and a half, the rain shower brought us indoors. But, it didn’t stop the party! We opened gifts, ate and were entertained by Slickpaw…Nash is FOUR!!! 120_thumb[1]Nash is FOUR!!! 122_thumb[1]Nash is FOUR!!! 125_thumb
