Father's Day 2014

Well as you can tell once I get going on the blog I just keep going and going! Even though this is a late one I'm hoping that one day it will mean a lot to Prestyn and Ryan!

This year we got to celebrate Father's Day for 2 days! On the weekend of...that Saturday we drove to Ryan's mom's house in Arlington. I think this was the only time Prestyn was PERFECT in the car on the way there AND on the way home!! We are so thankful!!

It was really nice to gather with everybody! Once Prestyn warmed up a little and had  few snacks we got her ready to get in the pool! She had some fun for a while, but was then ready to play with Grammies! Ryan and I got to enjoy some adult time in the pool with his aunt, uncle, and cousins while Nanny & Grammies got some baby time with P! Everybody was happy!

The next day (Sunday-Father's Day) we planned on grilling out, and having my family over. Ryan's dad was missed as he was in Niagra Falls (we'll get to see him this week to give him his gift from P!) :)

It was such a nice day! My mom, dad, brothers, nephews, and brother's girlfriend were all here! Once we started eating we also got a visit from my Indiana family! My aunt, uncle, cousin, her husband, and their daughter were in town for my other cousin's baptism so on their way back to Indiana they stopped by our house! It was so nice to see them! My cousin, Jennifer, and I were so happy that our girls finally got to meet! Prestyn was so cute trying to feed Addie a bottle. :)

On our C day Prestyn made a craft for her daddy. Once she woke up she was anxious to give her gift to her daddy!

P is for Party

Did I really never blog about this?! OMG I've gotten so lazy with the blog! I'm sorry friends! Prestyn's party was 3 months ago! I've decided I'm going to blog about her every big milestone...or what the doctor's office considers a milestone since she goes again for 15 months...that'll be my next big blog about her...but how could I blog about 15 months when I haven't even blogged about Prestyn's party yet!

So when trying to decide what the theme of the party should be my BFF said she always thinks the 1st party should go with the baby's name or nickname...which I totally agree with! So then we started brainstorming...what goes with P! Since that's what we call Prestyn! The ideas were just a rollin'!

So we had:

* Pails with Playdough, Pixie sticks, Pinwheels and Paddle balls for the kids
* P is for Pictures...so we had a Photo booth area set up with Props for People to take Pictures, and Post on Instagram with the hashtag: pisforprestyn
* Pizza rolls, Pickles, Pineapple, Pasta salad, Pickled loaf sandwiches, Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, Potato chips, Popcorn, Popsicles, Pink lemonade, Punch, and Puffs
* Painting for the kids: my sweet friend, JoAnna Painted faces for the kids! And we had finger Painting!

The kids enjoyed playing, painting, eating, and picture taking...I made it a point to enjoy Prestyn's party with her. She wasn't quite acting like herself, but we thought it was because she was overwhelmed by all the people.

After some time we sang to Prestyn, and gave her her cake! It was HUGE! Her sweet sitter, Amber, made it for her! This wasn't her first time to have cake, but she did really like the icing! We had cupcakes and cookies for her guests. :)

Next it was time to open presents! Prestyn was so joyfully spoiled with clothes & toys! We are so appreciative for all of the gifts she got!

Prestyn was thankful once we got home, and began to act more like herself! Nonna, Gee, Aunt Kari, Mark, and Dylan came back to the house for us. After P pretty much tore into all her gifts she was ready for bed! I did have to give her some tylenol though had she had a fever. :( When we took her for her 1 year visit we learned she had an ear infection. :( Her first one ever! No wonder she wasn't acting like herself at the party! Anyway here are some pictures from the party!
