Babysitting Miss Lo

We had so much fun babysitting Logan earlier this month.  Ok, this post is a little late, lol.  Jamie and Kevin were going to be out of town, so they needed some help and we were happy to babysit!!  She loved all of Skylar’s toys.  Skylar really loves her too. He treats her as his little sister.  We had so much fun!  It was July 4th weekend and downtown Greensboro was having a 4th festival.  They closed down the streets and had local bands play, while there was vendors everywhere, selling all kinds of things.  Logan though, fell asleep and missed most of it, but she did liven up once we got home. 


Hanging out on our bed.

Skylar and Lo were watching this young band of 11-14 year olds playing at the festival.  The band was awesome! They were playing songs like Baracuda.  I mean, they were fantastic!

The little girl was awesome singing.  They should have tried out for America’s got talent!

After that, we lost Logan!  I guess the music put her right to sleep.  She was out for 2 hours.  haha!

Then she finally woke up, but missed out on the ice cream we had.

But she made it in time for the funnel cake.  Which happened to be the first time she ever had that, oops…sorry Jamie!  She loved it.

Once we got back and finished dinner, she played with all the toys.

Skylar was sweet and would push her in the wagon, but then…..he would let go to see how far she would go, lol….um.

I got a sweet smile and a sneaky smile.

plasma car (1 of 1)

Skylar got a Plasma car from his maw maw and paw paw for his birthday and he’s starting to get the hang of it now.  It’s really easy to maneuver.  No batteries needed!  Woo hoo!  It’s for ages 3-69 and can hold 220 pounds or less, so guess whose played with this new toy more than him?  hmmmm…

Birthday Party at School

daycare-just woke up  (1 of 1)

Skylar just woke from his nap and it was time for his birthday party.  He was happy to see me, although it doesn’t appear that way, lol!daycare-I think I like this (1 of 1)

daycare (1 of 1)

His teeth are filled with chocolate, lol.  This shirt is so very appropriate for all that he’s eating.  He promotes healthy eating, but then you look at his plate….

makayla (1 of 1)  daycare-gabe and skylar (1 of 1)  

Makayla is his best friend.  They are partners in crime, but they constantly tattle on one another.  They fight so much, but then are such best friends, lol!  She’s 2 days younger than him.  Gabe is Skylar’s other good friend in the class.  They play with the legos and help each other carry toys or put them up.  I was laughing a lot when I was in there.  Kids are so cute!

Hot and Humid….Happy Birthday Skylar!


  Oh my gosh, I say this every year, but this time his birthday party was on seriously, the hottest day of the year!!  Just walking outside, I started to sweat.  So needless to say…I was looking hot….literally, ha!  Above is the banner I made.  His theme was planes trains and automobiles.  Oh….we finally got a fence for the back yard!  It took us 2 years, but … we got one.  :)

blog invite I made these invites and individually cut each one to look like an actual ticket.  I can’t take all the credit though, I found the design on the web and just did my sneaky work in photoshop to make them my own.  :)   A funny story that I thought I should mention, is that my mom thought I was sending her a plane ticket to go somewhere when she opened it up.  That is until she actually read the ticket. :)  Gotta love Nanny!

finished cake 2 (1 of 1)

The cake that I worked on all day Friday to make my little man’s eyes light up.  He was so excited and kept saying, “That’s my cake!!  Everything was edible too, except for the wires holding the balloon letters and the airplane candle holders.  I made the trains and the car the weekend before out of fondant.  I actually got several people asking me to make cakes for their upcoming events after I posted it on FB, lol.  Who knows, maybe I can have a side business.  :)

I’m so sad that I didn’t get the shots I wanted from the party, but there is always next year.  Thanks To Kelly though, she did take pictures with my camera when I was busy hosting. :)  Look how hot he looks here.   I found his shirt at Target and thought it was appropriate for the theme of his party.  It had all modes of transportation by Tonka.  :)  I got lucky with this one too, since I forgot to buy him a personalized birthday shirt in advance, ahah!

We had fresh blueberries picked by Skylar’s G-ma (Skylar’s maw maw’s mom).  He loved them!!

bounce house (1 of 1)

The entertainment was the big dino bounce house and all of Skylar’s outside toys, which also included water guns.  There were a few water gun fights being held.  I don’t think anyone minded if they got hit though.  Again, it was like 103 degrees!

goody bags (1 of 1)

The gift bags were water guns (totally appropriate), bubbles (everyone loves them), transportation suckers (airplanes, trains or cars), silly band bracelets (all modes of transportation) and Rice Krispies (no reason, only because they are awesome).  We also had books for the little ones.  I made my labels for the bags as well.  I’m not so good with the alignment for the round ones, lol.

I wished you could see the food here in person.  We of course, provided the pizza, fresh watermelon, chips, the cake and most of the drinks (lemonade, water, juice boxes, sodas and “daddy’s juice”)

After we ate, I heard from several kids, that they wanted to cut into the cake and so I finally said ok, it’s time for cake! 

Poor Serenity…she really wanted some cake.

I can’t believe Skylar is 3 years old.  The time has really flown by.  People say that all the time and you don’t really think about it, until it happens and it really does go by fast.  He’s so funny one moment and can be quite mean the next, but he’s absolutely perfect to us. 

Happy Birthday Skylar!!
