Excuses, Excuses

Look at those chompers. She wouldn't let me button her shirt this day, so we just acted like we were rock stars.

*Wow, where the heck have I been. Well, I was in Birmingham to visit friends, Lucy was sick with a double ear infection and nasty cough, and then I caught her cold. I just have been a bad blogger so I put myself in blogger time out. I hope you're not too mad at me. We have done a lot so I hope this is not too long for you.
*First, we went to Birmingham. We stayed with our friends Meredith, Hays and Margaret Anne. They are great hosts and I hope we didn't messy their house too much. Margaret Anne and Lu play very well together. She is about the sweetest little girl I know. She and LAS gave lots of hugs to each other. The are fast friends, just like their mommies. I sure miss those guys. Thanks! While they were at work Lu and I hung out with our other awesome friends Mallory and Emory, and Jessica and Georgia. We had great play dates, lunch, and attempted story time. I miss them soooo much!!! We also got to see Laura and Haley. Thanks for driving all that way. Can't wait until we can do it more often!!! It was too quick of a trip. It was a little harder this time with Lu. She doesn't sleep well in the same room with me.

Leaving a trail of Cheerios around the Homewood Library.

Haley and Georgia being so sweet!

Trying to feed Emory.

*I have also been on a little sewing kick thanks to Mallory. Lu got invited to a birthday party so I thought that I would make her something cute to wear. Then I thought about a few baby showers that I have coming up and thought I might get crafty. I made a few dresses and a lot of really cute burp cloths. Burp Cloths Model (not the best's a lot harder now that she is mobile!)

*So then we had the party. This was really her first birthday to attend. We knew it was going to be good when the mom said there were going to be unicorns. It was a Mardi Gras theme for Gretchen and a crawfish boil. Unfortunately it was pretty chilly, but we had a great time. LAS rode her first horse/ unicorn. Loved it. We may have to start saving for riding lessons. The house was beautiful and we all had a great time! I hope Gretchen isn't disappointed when she comes to our apartment complex for a cupcake in a few weeks. Hey, we might have a pinata!

That's Lu in the right corner checking it all out.

This guy was none-too-thrilled with the horn on his head.

She loved the horse!

Gretchen's Daddy made her high chair look like a Mardi Gras float. It was so cute!

The big kids raced crawfish. It was a fun idea, but unfortunately it was pretty brutal for the crawfish.
Save me!!

Yay for the latest update. I've been a bad blogger too lately. We had so much fun with you guys. We have to do it again soon. I'm in awe of that party! It reminds me of one of Tori Spelling's parties. Looks like a ton of fun!
