Sorry for the (very) late and somewhat short n' sweet post tonight, but I'm sick and having lady problems (TMI? Sorry.) and I had to take my mom back to the airport today (she was in town for E's birthday party).
So here are a few photos from this past weekend (and also a few from last week on E's birthday!):
On her birthday, E woke up to a treasure map on her table. We had hidden all of her birthday presents from us around the house, then marked them on the map for her to find. She may have found this even more fun than unwrapping presents (and this kid LOVES unwrapping presents). The map was made by J and a family friend (who requested that if I ever mention him on the blog that I refer to him as Mr. X). I think J and Mr. X had almost as much fun making the map as E did finding the presents. :)
Her face as J and I sang her the birthday song. Cuteness overload.
Her super hero pose!
At her party on Saturday, during the birthday song. She is such a ham!
My mom brought me a couple of my grandma's old cookbooks. One is a Habitat for Humanity recipe book, the other is a blank recipe journal for me to write my own recipes in! Excited to develop more recipes to write down in it, and someday share it with E!
Also, I want to thank you all so much for your encouraging words on last Thursday's post. You helped me realize that my style is actually exactly where I want it to be right now (but with room to grow!). You guys are the best. :)
I'll be back tomorrow with another pumpkin recipe! (Yeah those aren't going anywhere any time soon, so sorry if you don't like pumpkin!)
