just yesterday she was ONE

My little girl turns 5 today and I can hardly believe it.

On her first birthday we lived in Fresno, had been in our first house for a year, and had made a few wonderful friends from our church.  I was recently pregnant with Grant, very sick all day and tired…but I managed to throw together a simple little party for our new friends, lots of old friends and even our dear family members who lived all over the state and even further.  In all there were around 50 people there and it really was a lovely day.

Friends and family brought food and helped me put together the few decorations I had made.  At the last-minute they frosted cupcakes for us and made ice runs to the store.  We were lucky to have such support and love!  What a great day it was and how far our little girl has come.  I love you Paige…you are a lucky girl to have so many loved ones in your life. And so are we!

happy birthday to our favorite guy

Aaron:: You are the smartest, greatest, strongest, most faithful person that I know. People constantly compliment me by saying what a great man I have…and I just think to myself “I know…how did I get so lucky? And he’s so good looking too!” You take care of us in so many big and small ways that we cannot even put into words how grateful we are to call you Husband and Daddy! Paige thinks the world of you and I can already tell that Grant cannot wait to be just like you! Love you babe!

HOLIDAY randomness {tea parties, birthdays, kids & new year fun}

christmasTRADITIONS
Christmas, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Tremper Fam, Birthday Fun, a Hot Chocolate Tea Party & a little New Year’s dinner!
 
Here are some pics of Paige making cookies with Daddy!  They made them for Auntie Mishawn’s birthday request…Homemade Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches
 (try saying that 3 times fast)!
Don’t you love her apron (another great gift from Auntie Shannon)?
I made this crown with a $1 store paper crown that had a little girl princess design on it.  First I painted it and then while it was wet I covered it in glitter!  I added the flowers with rhinestone brads & the numbers are just a print out from our computer that I cut out with special scalloped scissors. This project is easy and quick and special!
To make the cookie sandwiches we used the Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe {it is the BEST}…find it HERE! To make the sandwiches be sure to let the cookies cool to room temperature and then just add good vanilla ice cream (like Bryers) & chill!
 
We love Auntie Mishawn!
Annual Christmas Time with the Trempers! Wooohooo! We had so much fun (although getting a good picture was impossible)!
I even had time to squeeze in a little tea party for the girls…complete with PB&J sandwiches in Christmas shapes, Candy Cane Scones and Candy Cane Hot Chocolate! Yum! You could easily do this for Valentine’s Day with heart cookie cutters instead!  I told the girls to make sure they put their pinkies up…so cute!
I basically just put a bunch of red things that I had in the cupboards on their plates!
New Year’s Day “Fancy Dinner” with just the four of us!  Paige got all into it and helped me set the table…we talked about our “high’s & low’s” of 2010 and it was a great night!
