A Blue & Brown Baptism/1st Birthday!

Last week, I had the privilege of putting together a baptism/birthday party for an adorable baby boy named James! It was my very first gig. I think it went exceptionally well, but there was one minor hiccup, and a few small things I would have changed.
The party was given by the God parents, and they gave me full reign over the decor. I had no idea what I wanted to do until I saw the invite. It was very simple, perfect for a baptism, and was blue & brown. So, I decided to do a color themed party. Colors were white with blue & brown accents. I also didn't want it to be too first birthday cheesy so I used his name throughout, and I wanted to keep the purity of the baptism with white.
The candy table was made up of candies in blue and brown with matching cupcakes and an adorable yummy cake to match. I was in charge of picking those out too.
I had a lot of fun doing this party and it was so easy since I was given the opportunity to pick what I thought would work. And since it was a success, I already have second gig lined up. Yay! A baby shower.

Isabella's in preschool!

This week Isabella started school at the same school Jacob attends. However, Isabella is only going 2 days a week, and only half day, just like her brother. At the end of her first day, I'd asked the teachers how she did, and to my surprise, they said she did fine. Such a relief. I thought my crazy girl would go nuts, but she didn't. Then again, it was only her first day. We'll see how she does this year!

Jacob's in PreK!

This week Jacob started prek, and this year he'll be going every day. Last year he only went 3 days a week. He also went to summer school so the transition back into prek was super easy. Almost like a regular day except now he's in a new class, and we're getting him ready for kindergarten next year! I can't believe he'll be in elementary school this time next year :( He's growing up so fast. This year I'll also be volunteering on a regular basis at his school. I'll be able to watch him grow and learn on the sidelines but at least I'll be there. So, we'll see where this school year takes us.
