Presley Kate is TWO!

I cant believe it but my little baby girl is two years old. Makes me sad especially since we are finished having children.

I am so thankful that I have these pictures because its hard for me to imagine how tiny she was!

She wasnt happy about being in the carseat for the first time.
She is such a princess. Does not like to get her hands dirty!

Her hair looks red here????
Look how sweet she is!!! She looks so much older. We are definately out of the baby stage! She is very independent & loves to do things Herself!!!

One of my favorite pictures of my Presley Kate.

Presley Kate,
There are so many things that you are doing at TWO! Here are a few...
*You weight about 25lbs
*I have no idea how tall you are :/ You have a well child check next week
*You wear size 18-24 months
*Shoe size is a 5. You have such little feet
*You are potty training yourself. You *usually* tell me when you have to go potty but will occassionally have accidents. You have even gone all night without a pull up!!!
*Your favorite foods are strawberries, ice cream, and beans(you love all kinds)
*You still are not a fan of meat
*You love Minnie Mouse and Disney Princesses
*You are such a good talker and can have conversations with us. I dont think there is anything you dont say!
*You are so smart!
I know there is tons more but I am drawing a blank here :)

Heidi's Nook

Before starting this school year I started doing some research on things that can help Peyton focus on his school work. Thats when I came across Heidi's Nook. In her shop you can find weighted lap blankets that can help children with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder as well as learning disabilities focus on doing their home work. I have even read that the weighted lap blankets can help a child when out to dinner with the family or at the dentist. Here are a few things you can find in her shop.
Firemen Fabric for the lap blankets

Adorable quilts the will make you the talk of the shower!

Fun fabric for girls for a lap blanket!

How adorable is this for a lap blanket.

Heidi's Nook was so generous and sent us our own Alien's weighted lap blanket. Because of Peytons size we went with a 4lb blanket but she can make them 1-8lbs. As soon as we opened the box Peyton had to try it out. He doesnt really get that it is helping him but he thinks its pretty cool to get to lay it in his lap while doing school work. I think next time we go out to dinner we will be taking this new blanket with us to try out.

Heidi's Nook would love to work with you and she is offering the first FIVE Magical Memories follower FREE SHIPPING on their entire order when you use the code MAGICAL at checkout
!!! This offer will expire on Sept 15th. Hurry up and take advantage of this sale! Get a jump start on Christmas. I am sure you know someone who is struggling and could use any assistance such as a weighted lap blanket, right?

What we have been up too Part 2

....That Sunday, me, my kids, Kai (my bff), her sisters and their kids, we all went up to Chattanooga to the aquarium and to Coolidge Park. We spent the day up there. It was awesome. I love spending time with Kai and I LOVE Chattanooga. If I could move anywhere that is where I would move. We left the kids play in the fountains at Coolidge Park. I was so surprised at how well Presley Kate took a liking to it. She loves water but is bashful around other people. I had to drag her out of the water lol. After that Kai went back home with her sister to spend the week with her and they took her back to the airport this past Sunday :(

All our babies. I think PK thought that was her big brother she was holding on to.

My best friend in the entire world, Kai with her nephew William.

My sweet girl


Cant believe she will be 2 on FRIDAY :(

Kai and I

River part of Tennessee Aquarium.

This thing looks so human in the face. Kinda creepy

And look how mean this sucker look. YIKES!

Me & my kiddos.

Playing in the fountains at Coolidge Park. She really surprised me :)
Love this shot of Parker and PK

Thats my update. All this is going on, on top of the boys starting back to school. Peyton going to Speech/Language Therapy once  a week and most likely will be starting Occupational Therapy very soon once a week. Add in that I just signed Parker up to play Soccer and this mama is and will be WORE OUT!!!

This weekend was really low key for us. Friday I just went to a few shops to get us something to wear for the pictures we had scheduled. Saturday we just had my brother and his family over for a cookout and Sunday was a lazy day except for the evening when we went to a farm to have family pictures made and Presleys 2 year pictures done. I can not believe she is almost TWO. I can not wait to see how they turned out although I know they will be really good. Check out Brandi, our photographers, WEBSITE and BLOG.

Thats my update of the past month basically. Now I am planning PK 2nd birthday and Parkers 6th is just around the corner.

What we have been up too Part 1

Things have been crazy around these parts lately!!! I feel like I am still playing catch up after our Disney Vacation. When we came back from Disney I did my first ever trunk show for Polkadots & RainBows on that Saturday the 30th. I was very thankful to have such a successful show! So I immediately started working on all those orders. Thankfully they are all finished!!!

 Then the next Friday I went to the Atlanta airport to pick up my best friend who lives in Jacksonville Fl. She was staying the weekend with me. So I picked her up and we stopped to have dinner and then came home. The next day was my sister in laws baby shower that I hosted so I had to do a lot of things for that. We had the shower and then went to my parents house so she could visit them for a while. We have been friends since 6th grade. She was my maid of honor. She is basically my sister/my parents other daughter if you will lol. After the visit with my parents we all went to eat with my brother and his family. Then we came home and crashed.

Here are some pictures of the baby shower for Baby Brooklyn who is scheduled to be here on October 14th if all goes as planned!!!!

Adorable cupcakes

Beautiful cake and it tasted good too.

Oreo pops

I am very proud of my little bird house I created.

Brooklyn is very much loved! Cant wait for her arrival. Wont be much longer now.

Disney World Part II

Sorry it has taken me so long to do another picture post of Disney. Please forgive me. This was the day we went to Chef Mickeys to have breakfast with the characters!!! It was a wonderful experience and plan to do it again next year when we go back :0) Also on this day we went to Disneys Hollywood Studios. This is a long picture post - you are warned :0)

Waiting for our table.

They had a Celebration Dance they did where everyone swirled their napkins in the air. The kids LOVED that part. It was very cute!

My husbands favorite part of the day. Lights, Motors, Action is a must see if you go to Hollywood Studios!!! Well worth sitting in the heat to see.

Countdown to Fun Parade was Very Cute!!! So glad we got to see it :0)

Isn't she darlin?

Kris and the boys went to an Indiana Jones show so Presley and I went to see the Little Mermaid. She fell asleep about 4 mins into it but I enjoyed it lol,

Not sure what the characters name is here covering Parkers face but it was really funny I do have a picture without him covering it but he kept doing it. Ha!

PK was passed out so she didnt get to see all the characters.

Lov ethis picture of Parker. Peyton was done with pictures at this point and was just pooped!

More pictures coming lol. I have tons. Sorry they arent edited. I didnt have time for all that lol.
