Happy Monday

Well, yesterday was Tatym's 1st birthday party and it turned out great! We kept it small and simple and had a blast! She had fun with our friends & family that were here and got lots of cool presents that are even being enjoyed by Keegan (he's 6 1/2)! LOL Funny how the big kids play with the baby toys just as much as the babies, if not more! :O)

I used a store-bought cake and decorated it with ladybugs using strawberries, blueberries, black licorice and mini choc. chips:

We had ladybug tiaras for the girls:

I made these helicopters for Valentines day and the kids loved it so I decided to make some for the party and just decorate the top with a ladybug and flowers:

We ended the party by going to the park and here's the party girl:

On a side note, here's a card I made as an example for the CTMH home gathering I had on Saturday. It's simple but cute:

It's been fun prepping for Tatym's party and I still can't get over how fast this year went by. I try not to think about it because I get all teary-eyed but it's been a great year! Now comes planning for Keegan's 7th birthday *gulp*! 7 just seems so big to me. Can't believe my first-born is turning 7 (in Nov.)...where is the time going? Geesh!!
Alright, I'm off to clean up from the party and get my house back in order! Crossing my fingers that I can do some creative stuff tonight!! HAPPY MONDAY!
