A Dreamboats Birthday.....oh my gosh I love boy babies...

When the ultra sounds tech told me "its a boy" I must admit I was a little shocked, I had only every imagined myself with girl babies, I'm from girls...I'm over the top fluffy and have no idea what to do with the male gender. Although I was happy to get one of each I had no idea what I was in for until they put that sweet baby boy in my arms....LOVE LOVE LOVE....DEEP DEEP LOVE!! It was different than with Caroline, I was holding a boy, who would one day be a man. I so desire my son Caldwell to have a heart after God, to desire to please God with all His heart, soul and might..if this happens, he will be a man, a man worth seeing and hearing. Caldwell has been a delight to our family this year, such an easy baby with tons of smiles and cuddles, gorgeous eyes that see right to your soul. I would not trade 100 girls for him, a good and perfect gift from above. His 1rst birthday symbolizes him...a man on the that be wagon or feet he is ready to take life on!!! We love you sweet little handsome's!!!!

Caroline's Paris the barn......

Caroline's birthday party happened exactly 12.5 hours after being home from the beach....CRAZY...Each year I have said I am going to "keep it simple" now that term is so very relative. Our family loves France and all things french....the food, the wine, the country, the fashion and the Poodles!! My mother is practically the grown version of "Fancy Nancy" if you have a little girl you know exactly what I am talking about. I figured that I only had this last year to convince my sweet baby girl of the theme she "wanted to have" before I give into the classic princess party or Dora the Explorer. She has always loved my mom's poodles and I thought...BRILLIANT!!! A french poodle party. So complete with French music, food, an art project and REAL Poodles the day was wonderful (hot..but very very wonderful). There is something so fun about watching a socialite child (she comes by it so very honestly) delight in seeing each of her friends come to the party and enjoy themselves!!! So Bonjour!! Welcome to "Caroline's France in our Party Barn"
