Father's Day Gifts From Baby Henry

It's Father's Day y'all!! Whoop whoop!!! For some reason I'm in such a great mood! 

Even with this little guy tearing up my craft room. This is what he does... EVERY... DAY... NO... LIE...

But I don't mind 'cuz he lets me work.

And he's super cute. How could you get madd at a face like this??? You just can't. He's a good baby. Baby Henry chillin' like a villin' in summer! What what!!!

Okay back to Father's Day stuff. So Baby Henry decided he wanted to give Daddy and Grandpa something for Father's Day. 

Here's Daddy's gift. (P.S. It's Pinterest-inspired but you already knew that.) I took the "Walk a Little Slower, Daddy" poem and translated it into Spanish since Daddy is fluent in Spanish and is still learning English. While Daddy was asleep I took his sneaker and stamped it in yellow paint then onto the printout. Then I took Baby Henry's foot (while he was awake, not sleeping! that wou;dve been a disaster!) and painted it orange and stamped his footprint over Daddy's. 

For Grandpa, I used Baby Henry's palm print. First I painted the water scene. Then I painted Baby Henry's hand yellow and imprinted it onto the painting. He's a little fishy! And he's hooked on Papa!!

Dad and Granddad loved it!

Marjorie's Bridal Shower Invite

My bestie is gettin' merried ya'll!!! Whoop whoop!! I'm so excited! AND she picked me as her Matron of Honor!! Double whoop whoop! I love me my bestie!!! Of course being the crafter that I am you know I had to do her bridal invites. Enter Pinterest the lifesaver! I found ideas and shot them Marge's way. We settled on one we both liked and 30 invites went her way.

These invites were SOOOOO easy to make!!! I made everything already in my possession (I love my craft room!). I printed out the invite, glittered up the bodice and attached tulle and ribbon and voila! DOOOONE!!!! I love, love, love the way these came out. And once she received them, Marjorie fell in love with them, as well.

The Beach in Spring and Our 2-Year Wedding Anniversary

Hey there! Welcome back!


Look below!

Do you see him?!?!?!

It's Baby Henry being funny! Or... well... I guess it's Mommy and Daddy being funny, lol. We love playing with his long hair. I thought this would be a fun pic to share with you all.

Here are a few more. Recently we spent an afternoon at the beach. It was sunny out but still a bit windy. 

This pic below is one of my favorites. It's Daddy skimming rocks along the water and Baby Henry in back in his little cruiser. My two boys. Words can't express how much they mean to me :)

Here's another candid of Daddy and Baby.

So recently Daddy and Mommy celebrated their wedding anniversary. We've been married for two years. I know we JUST did the church thang in September but we did the legal thang in May of 2013 so legally, we have been married for two years. I made a few things for Daddy this year. First, a cake because I love making cakes. I just realized though that I had made him a blue cake last year for his birthday! Blue is my favorite color and it's Henry's favorite color as well, so... who cares! More blue the better! 

In addition to his blue cake, I made him a little frame. I printed our wedding song lyrics ("Sabes" by Reik) onto heavy cardstock, then I cut it out in the form of a tree. I then pasted it onto another white background, cut out red hearts, and hung them on the tree branch. Then I framed the tree. after that I cut out two of the same hearts again and wrote our names on them. Then, using 3D dots I put them on the outside of the frame so they would stand out.

I also put lipstick on and kissed some cardstock and wrote him a little note. Then I laminated it and told him to keep my kiss in his wallet. Then, I cut and laminated another piece of cardstock and put our wedding stats on there, i.e. how many years, months, weeks, days, hours, etc. we've been together. This was another card for his wallet.

A close-up of the tree of love frame.

Anniversaries aren't really big in Ecuador and my parents never really celebrated their anniversaries either. But I've always had a love for celebrating special moments and this is definitely one of them. I love remembering the first time we met, and the first time we went out, and our wedding, our son's birth... everything. It is all special to me and I am happy things happened the way they did. It wasn't easy when I moved to Ecuador, but Henry was a silver lining. I never expected any of this to happen. We met and became friends. I was positive that was it. Then one day... love happened :)
