Full Of Grace

Have you ever known someone that has a name that fits them perfectly? For me that is my Grace.  She has always been such a graceful girl. She gracefully tells her brother to stop. She gracefully says "Yes, Mom" when asked to do her chores. She gracefully takes on new challenges. She gracefully accepts others for who they are. She gracefully goes with the flow. She gracefully speaks her mind. She is Grace. I feel blessed to have her in my life.

Cupcake Party
As soon as I saw the newest birthday  paper by 3 Bugs In A Rug I knew that it would be used for Olivia's first birthday party. I made little things to decorate her birthday cupcakes with as well as a wreath and if I would have had more time I would have made a banner and a part hat.
 With gluten free, dairy free, soy free cupcakes. (They were not bad for what they don't have in them.) But, hey they look really delicious don't they?
I had to buy a cupcake scented candle from Bath and Body Works so even if they don't taste totally like a real cupcake at least it will smell like one! (Just might have to get candles for everything now..pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, Christmas tree at get the picture!)
 The special wreath I made. I love how it turned out! The "1" is removable so that I can reuse for other birthdays.
 The birthday girl herself. Such a sweetie.
 She wasn't so sure about that cupcake either, but it didn't take long and....
Look at that mess! I love the little hands all gooped up with cupcake!
But don't you dare try o take a picture of her with her brother and sister. This is her birthday!

Everyone Told Me....

Everyone told me that God would never give me two majorly energetic kids in a row. That the third child will just go with the flow, be passive and enjoy watching all that is around and take it all in before jumping in. Well, I have to tell you those people were SOOOOOOOOOO WRONG! While Q and Olivia are loads of fun they have determination and spunk! (I'm sure it will come in handy as adults...please someone tell me it will?)

Yes thats a cast my soon to be 12 month old is wearing. (covered by  pretty sock of course) So for those of you wondering, yes a sub 1 year old can break their leg! Crazy I tell ya.

She doesn't let this bad boy stop her either. She gets around quit well with it and doesn't even seem to care its there. Her personality is such that nothing will stop her from getting what she wants. I'm positive that's just the personality trait that got her in this predicament in the first place.
