Summer Bucket List completed...almost...

The only thing left to put in our Summer Bucket is "Make a Buzz Lightyear."  Summer doesn't technically end until the end of September, right?!?!?!
 
Here's some pictures of our Summer Bucket List items...Jacob really got into this!  He was so excited to take the paper off the cork board and put it into the bucket when we completed it!

1st Birthday Party!

Cute as a Button and So Much Fun!
 
Elizabeth's 1st birthday party was a success!  Family members from California and Atlanta came up for the celebration!  It was a good time!  Elizabeth was not so sure about all the stares and didn't really know what all the fuss was about...In the end, she likes the new toys, and seems to have found out that cake and icing is pretty good stuff!  The theme was "Cute as a Button" so we had buttons galore!  Thanks to Google, I found some cute ideas for decorations.  No ladies, I am NOT on Pintrest, so, you can still find cute things and not need that silly website...  :)
 
Here's some pictures of the fun...
 
paper plate buttons...mason jars with cupcake papers for lids...
 
Sweet Elizabeth with her Agga...in the dress I made for her.  ;)
 
Scrapbook paper banner and paper plate buttons...  Also made a PowerPoint to show on the iPad...
 
Table decorations...one game (guess how many buttons).  Congrats Uncle Buh for guessing the closest!  :)
 
Where the mess is made...a birthday bib to match her birthday dress!
 
Putting buttons on the cake.  Thanks to Agga for making marshmallow fondant buttons.  They taste good and look so cute!
 
The button cake and smash cake
 
 
Silly big brother...
 
Silly Uncle Biggie...
