Themes for Cassie's 1st birthday and Shay's 4th

I have a few idea's for her first birthday. I found an owl theme Look Whooo's Turning 1 and then found an Owl cake off the parenting site. might not do the cake I was more thinking of getting a owl shaped cupcake cake instead.

Then Shaylee wants to have a Barbie cake the kind that has a real barbie and then a cake that is the dress. Then do barbie pink plates and plastic wear.

My babies are growing up so fast!!

Shaylee's Good Noodle Chart

We just ended the first month of her Good Noodle Chart. She earned $16 with all the stickers she got. She did great with going on the potty, getting dressed, eating meals. She needs to work on listening better, picking up, and not hitting. We will continue to do the chart each month. We have yet to have her pick out her reward but when she does I will post pictures.

Barbie $3.99
My Little Pony $4.99
Little People Firetruck $4.99

My sister talked my parents into having this up and coming band Score TwentyFour to come play at the house July 18th. She had to work to earn the money and she did.

I didn't know much about them at first but I started to listen to them, add them as FB friends, etc. Now I still don't know all the words to the songs but I do know them personally. Rob,Paul, Ryan, Tom, Joey and Erica(they have a Merch girl).

They got to mom and dads house and we all talked for awhile because they had 3 hours to visit with us. They were super nice and very down to earth. We all got along great. Erica was such an adoreable girl I want to adopt her!! They ages are 17-23. I can't even describe how fun and awesome it was to listen to them live and then be able to talk to them personally. My entire family fell in love with them! We want them to come back in October if they can and next summer we don't even care if they don't sing we just want to visit with them.

Oh how I hate waiting especially when it could possibly be the best thing that has happened to us in awhile.
It is stressing both Steve and I out that we are pickering at each other and driving each other crazy. He needs to get away from us for longer than just a few hours a week, it will be great for all of us. I pray so much for everything to work out for us. So many great signs have happened in the last week but we won't feel complete unstressed till we find out for sure.
