Titus had a Monkey Good Time!

It seems like I just brought home my lil bundle of joy but this last week we got to sing "Happy Birthday."  I love birthday parties!  I had so much fun getting ideas for a monkey themed party.  :)  Even though the birthday boy is too young to play party games he still had fun observing and playing his own way.  

When our guests arrived I had 2 simple games that even young ones could play.  The first was "Monkey see, monkey do" which is a copy type game.  One person is the monkey and you copy what ever actions they make.  Very simple and even if Titus did not do it he could craw around and laugh and play.  The second game was, "Monkey in the middle" which is similar to "pig in the middle."  I brought in a monkey stuffed animal and the kids were in a circle throwing the monkey trying to not let the person or monkey in the middle get the stuffed animal.  If they got the monkey then there would be a new monkey in the middle.  :) 

After we did cake and ice cream I planned one more banana activity but this was for older kids.  LOL!!  It was a race to see who could eat their banana that fastest, but the trick was they had to use their feet to open the banana.  :)  LOL, it was a good laugh and we had some good sports who played it!  :) 

Family Picture!  :)  We loved our monkey cake!

I think he loved it too...:)

I am so blessed by this cake lady, she is so affordable and does amazing work but also her cakes taste yummy!!!  

Yay Presents!

We sure are blessed by all our friends and family!  

Dear Titus,
I love you more then words could describe.  This year has been a joy.  You have added so much to our little family.  You started to take your first steps a week before you turned one and within that week you were walking fast across the room.  You seem to want to catch your sister.  In fact you have been out eating her, try to tackler her and sometimes you are naughty and pull her hair.  Actually you love hair and pull mommy's when you nurse, and if daddy has bare legs or no shirt you pull his leg hair or chest hair.  You have learned the word "no", but you pretend not to listen.  You are very good at signing and saying "all done."  You currently have 3 teeth, 2 on bottom and 1 on top, but I am sure more will come soon.  
Your favorite things to do right now is throw balls or throw anything for that matter.  You love to play with cars and trucks and you like to bang and make noise.  Your newest favorite thing you have been doing is taking clothes out of your dresser.  Mommy thinks your first chore should be folding laundry!  :) 
Daddy and mommy know that God has some amazing plans for your future!  We are excited to be a part of it and we pray for you daily! 
My advice for you at age one is listen to your mommy and daddy, stay sweet, and know that Jesus loves you more then you know!  Our prayer for you is to feel God's presence every day and to know Him and His grace!  We pray for you to be a bright light in your generation sharing His love, mercy, grace, and goodness!  So on your birthday we declare God to shine his love, mercy, grace, and goodness on your so you can share it every day!  

Hugs and kisses every day,

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
