Halloween Fun!!

We had another fun Halloween this year!!! Macey is at such a fun age right now and really enjoyed all the little things!!!
She was so excited to carve her pumpkin!!! 
She wanted Minnie Mouse ears this year, so of course, that's what she got!!! She was so proud of her pumpkin!!! 
Macey decided to be a witch this year and my goodness she was the cutest little witch! I loved her costume! It was just so pretty!!! 
Macey enjoyed trick or treating this year and ran to every door!
Hope you all had a Happy Halloween! I just pulled down our Fall/Halloween decorations and hoping to get a head start on Christmas d├ęcor soon!

Birthday Party!!!

Macey turned FOUR last month and I decided to keep it simple!!! We hosted her party at a little place here in town called the Mad Platter and the kids painted pottery!
The birthday girl!!! 
I kept the food simple, too! We had cake, chocolate covered pretzels, and juice! 
Macey's only request was she wanted an Elsa cake...and Y'ALL!! Look how darn cute this cake turned out! We ordered if from a bakery across town and it was well worth the drive!!! 
We let the kids paint little hand tiles, so they can hand them up with ribbon! Macey did a handprint with flowers all around it! I can't wait to pick up the pottery and see how they all turned out!
This party was fun, simple, and over in an hour!

I wasn't sure how to label this post since it has been over a year or close to it since I've posted...I've really let the blog slip to the back burner, but I miss documenting our memories!
There is no way I can recap our whole past I'll just highlight a few of the big parts!
We moved into our new home last November! Crazy to think that we have been here for almost a whole year already! We are slowly, but surely making it feel like home. We have a never ending DIY list, but we take it one step at a time! Maybe I'll do a home tour soon! 
We are still just a family of three!
We had plans to hopefully welcome a new baby this past year, but as always God has reminded our family that he is in control and it is all in his timing! I have had a really hard time accepting this fact this past year, but trying hard to rest in his peace and let him handle the future for our family! 
And this sweet, little lady just turned FOUR this week! I'm not sure how on earth she is already four, but we have celebrated all week! She is keeping her Mommy and Daddy busy with her sweet, sassy, funny, strong personality! There is never a dull moment with her around!!!
This year has had its ups and down, but we are truly blessed!
The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with JOY. Psalms 126:3
So here is to my final attempt at blogging...

We had a little bumble bee buzzing around this Halloween! Macey was the cutest little bee that we've ever did see! This customer was just perfect for her!
Macey really enjoyed Halloween this year and loved all the candy even more! We took her to a trunk or treat to the church of her preschool and then we went trick-or-treating in our new neighborhood. I also walked her around to a few neighbors in my parents neighborhood. We tricked or treat with a little girl in our new neighborhood and they would hold hands and run from door to door. It was hard for me to accept the fact that she was big enough this year to go to the doors with a friend and didn't need me :( 
How stinkin' cute is this picture?!?! 
Macey's school at a little parade and all the kids marched through the church, playground, and parking lot trick-or-treating with the staff. They were all so cute!!!!!
This post should catch me to present time other than our house updates! We are getting close to it being finished and will probably just do one big post later once it's completed. Just pray for no big delays or issues to come up!!!

Yep!!! You heard me right it is that time of year again!!! I have been looking at Shutterfly's holiday cards for the past couple weeks and I can't wait to start designing them for 2013. I have used Shutterfly several times for Christmas cards and other photo gifts and they are the best! There are so many cute cards to choose from that I have no clue how I will ever decide which one to go with! Here some of my favorites!!!
I love this one!
It makes me want to go somewhere with snow to get a picture just like this with snow!!
I really like this one with the black and white photo with the bright colors!!! 
I love this design, so I can share a family picture and then more pictures of Macey!!! If you are like me you always have such a hard time choosing just one picture! 
This is such a cute design and perfect for showing off a family photo!!! 
And there are no words for how cute this card is for all you fur-parents!!! If I didn't have a cute little girl to show off I would totally send this one out with Buddy on it!!
So obviously as you can see there are some super cute options to choose from this year! Go check it out for yourself here!!!
