In a year!

I meant to post these last month, but that month flew by so quickly and this month is going even faster!

fall foster 007


This is what a difference a year makes! Still as cute as ever, but sadly most of what little baby fat he had is gone! Oh I can’t believe it has been a year, and what is even harder to believe is that in 4 months he will be TWO!

I love you doodle!

New Ornaments!

Daddy came home with some new ornaments for our tree today! He found Fosters second Christmas ornament and surprised Foster with his first Thomas the Train ornament ( we are asking Santa for Thomas this year)!

I also have to say something about my cute elf's, or elb’s if you ask Foster, on my tree! My wonderful Nanny made four of these for me, and they are some of my most prized Christmas items, next to my Angel that she made us for the top of our tree! I love my four elf’s!

WOW that was a fun trip!!!

We had an amazing time!!!! With a 6 year old, a 4 year old, and a 19 month old you couldn’t of asked for much better! Of course we all knew that Chloe and Shelbee would love all of the characters and even though Foster has loved every character he had met up to that point the question still lingered if he would love them or have a mental break down and he……………….

LOVED THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We made so many memories on this trip I really don’t know where to begin, so I am just going to post a few pictures every week and keep the magic going!!!!

a walk down memory lane!!

Since we are about a week away from our big Disney celebration, i thought that i would post a few pictures from my second trip to WDW!!! The first time we went to Disney we were only there one day, this was the first time we stayed more than one day and the first time all four of us girls were there!

(my mom had already scrapbooked the pictures and then scanned them in *thanks mom*)

Us with donald duck, there is a funny story about this picture………just ask my mom!

And just in case you are wondering which one is me, well i would be the one rocking that neon green fanny pack and goofy hat! Don’t be jealous it takes a lot to look that put together!!!!!!


Us with the Genie, you don’t get to meet him anymore i believe!


Us with my Nanny in front of the starland sign! It is no longer there!


All of us with the mouse! How Exciting!!!!


I can’t wait to get started on so many new memories, this will be my 6th trip to WDW and Fosters very first!

Let the good times begin!!!!!!!

Extra Extra Large Korkers!!!

Well since Shelbee has a Halloween birthday she always gets a few Halloween bows! Carmen requested huge korkers as one of the sets, “the biggest ones you have ever made” were her exact words! I think these do the trick!

She is celebrating her birthday early at Chuck-E-Cheese!!!


Her birthday build-a-bear!!! She actually chose a bunny dressed a Cinderella of course!

O.K. East Side Moms

Here is a bow to match one of the school shirts! I am working on a bow for the blue one. My sister loves the brown shirt, but is not sure of the blue and orange one so I put that one on the backburner and got this one finished! And for everyone that is wondering yes she has a pigtail set but I only took a picture of one! Hopefully she will send me a picture of Shelbee wearing the bows……HINT HINT!!!!

Fosters Baby Dedication

Well at 18 months old Foster was finally dedicated to the church! Our old church did not do this and since we have not found another church since we decided to leave our other one, my sister-in-law was kind enough to invite us to have Foster dedicated at their church, thanks Em.! This is very special to us, it is saying that we vow to raise our son in a Christian home with Christian values! Carmen was kind enough to snap some pictures for us so we could always remember this special day!

Foster wanted to get down so bad!!

Not So Scary Halloween!!

Wow where has the month of October gone?????  Halloween bows are my favorite bows to make, and I have not even had time to post one yet! This particular bow is for my BOO NIECE Shelbee who was born on Halloween! Although we will not be in Disney World on Halloween I just had to make her this bow because we love Disney that much! She of course has a set of pigtails but I just took the picture of the one!

Hope you enjoy!!

I made the flowers, and the flower girl dresses, on top of five million other things! My mom, Fawn, Chloe, Shelbee, Aunt Brenda stayed at the church until 1:30 friday night, Carmen and myself stayed until 3:30 a.m. trying to get everything set up, and once again I tell myself love you Scarlett and James! The wedding turned out beautiful, I can’t wait to see all the pictures! Here are a few that I took!

Miss Savannah!!!

This is Miss Savannah, and I have been making her bows for years now! Her mommy is one of my best customers, I couldn’t even guess how many Red Rover bows she has!! I saw this picture of Savannah in the pumpkin patch and I just fell in love with it! It is a great example of how a simple orange bow can add the perfect touch to that special outfit, and it doesn’t hurt when it is on such a pretty model!


I was going through my old photos and came across this cute picture of Savannah! This picture was taken about 3 years ago at my very first bow party, hosted by who else but Shelly (Savannah’s mommy)!!!!
