It's Party Time!

Sunday afternoon was our 3rd annual celebration of the nearly 7 Parker family birthdays during the month of February and March!

Deborah- February 2
Neal- February 5
Caroline- February 16
Grandpa Farthing- February 24
David- March 20
Sharon- March 25
New Baby David & Caroline- March ???

We enjoyed a variety of 3 homemade lasagnas, including a Spinach & Artichoke Alfredo lasagna, and one with a homemade bolognese sauce.

And our colorful rainbow theme came full circle with 6 layers of homemade cake and icing that Caroline "labored" over at 37 weeks pregnant!! It was scrumptious!

Let's Try Again

My {re}Purposed Life is doing a giveaway for a Silhouette! It is an AH-MAZING machine, and this giveaway is a bit smaller than the first one I entered about a month ago, so better odds!

A Day at the Park

This past Saturday the weather was beautiful, so we decided to take advantage of it and spend some time out-of-doors at the local park. Amelia and I took up residence in the tree shade, while Neal ran the track for about 2 miles. It has been a bit too cold since Amelia has been born to spend much time outside, so this was really only her second time out enjoying the breeze!

This is what she did when Neal ran off!

And this is what she did when he came back!

Happy Valentine's Day

No special plans for us today since we just celebrated 2 birthdays earlier this month! A nice & quiet evening at home is all that is in store for us.

Hunny woke up to the-absolute-cutest-card-I've-ever-seen this morning! I blogged about the free valentine card from TinyPrints here a few weeks ago. It came on Friday, just in the nick of time!

Amelia Jane's Room---Almost Done!

Amelia's room has been a slow process...and we're almost done! It started out with mostly gender neutral items, and the big stuff still is. I have added some more feminine touches over the past couple of days, and I hope to be completely done by the weekend! Here's a sneak peak:

"Sew" Sweet

Lately I've been on a sewing kick, and good thing because I've had a TON of baby items to make! From blankets to burp cloths, here are the latest items I just completed. They are burp cloths for the wife of one of my husband's co-workers. She is due any day now!

The completed order!

LOVE these Amy Butler designer fabrics!

Retro Chocolate and Pink

Sweet Baby Blue

If anyone wants to make a request, just e-mail me and I can send you some fabric samples to choose from! Blankets can be made to match or coordinate.

The Children's Place MONSTER SALE!

The Children's Place online shop is having a MAJOR sale. Most items are $2.99 and they still have a decent selection and size options available. HURRY to check them out though, because I know one of the tops I had in my cart sold out by the time I went to check-out!

Valentine's Day Card

TinyPrints is running a special right now, where you can get one free valentines day card when you check out with promotional code FREELOVE. These cards are typically $3.99, and they have some really cute designs that you can add your own photo to so that they are extra special!

After Valentine's Day, I'll post the most adorable one that I just ordered! (good thing her daddy doesn't read this blog that often!)
