Wednesday, February 3, 2010 I love thee!

My all time favorite place to buy clothing for my children is Gymboree. However, I don't usually care for the amount of money that they charge for their clothing. I have become very skilled at scouring Ebay and consignment stores for Gymbo clothing in order to dress my children as cute as possible. Lately, I haven't really cared for the designs that Gymbo has been using so I haven't been that interested. All of that changed this week. Check these out:

I love the colors! Aqua and green look fantastic together! Especially when you throw in a bit of white and yellow! The Tractor stuff for little boys is just too adorable for words! I think it's the perfect blend of cute and boy...not too babyish.
I want these clothes!!!! One problem...the cost! The shirts are $20 each and the dress is close to $40. I just don't have that kind of change to burn. So, I will dream about them and wait a season or two when I can snag them up on Ebay. Except maybe for the tractor stuff!

Noah turns one!!!!

My baby boy turned one last week! Where has the time gone? I can remember, so clearly, the day he came home from the hospital. He was so small! Of course, he is still on the small side but he has grown so much!

We had a little celebration for him, on his actual birthday, at home with just our family. We had chocolate cupcakes and the girls decorated the kitchen.

We had a larger party, with friends, the day after his birthday. It was a lot of fun. We ended up having a small snowstorm the night before the party, which is funny because Noah's birthday is the one year anniversary of last year's horrible snow and ice storm. We were fortunate and this storm only dumped about three or four inches on us, which was not enough to cancel the party!


The day turned out to be a lot of fun! Thank you so much to all of our friends and family who helped to make Noah's 1st birthday so special. We love you!
*I will post one year stats later in the week after his check up at the pediatrician*

Christmas 2009

I apologize for not posting photos from Christmas has just gotten away from me. Between homeschooling, birthdays and being sick I have been overwhelmed. So, without further ado....
