Still Waiting.....

So a couple of weeks ago I got a panicked phone call at work from my husband,"Brandi I had to break a window at the house"!!!  Turns out, while our then almost 1 year old was taking her morning nap he had gone outside to feed our 2 doggies and accidentally locked the door behind him!!  When he figured out what he had done his first instinct was to grab a hammer that was on our outside table and break a window to get back in!!  The door that he accidentally locked is awful, it has been so scratched up by our dogs that we have talked about replacing it several times, but the thought of breaking the glass in the door didn't cross his mind, instead he broke one of the custom bay windows in our kitchen that has to be special ordered to replace!  He got on top of things that day and had "fixed up the window for now" and had ordered and paid for the replacement.  So here is our "fixed up" window and 2 weeks later we are still waiting on the new one!

but I am thankful that he was thinking about our daughter and her being alone by herself in the house before anything else!  Even though we have a cardboard window for now I know that Tim will always put Caraline's safety first!!! (and lesson learned, we need to hide a spare key)!!!

Birthday Celebrating!!!!

This is my first blog posting so we are starting with an important one!!! (thanks Alicia for suggesting this, once I get it figured out think I will LOVE it)

Today baby girl Caraline turned the big ONE!  I can't believe how fast this first year has gone by! The past couple of weeks have been so emotional and this morning wasn't any different, I even started crying when I first looked at my facebook profile today and it said  Caraline Alexis, 1 year!!!!

We had a birthday party with our family and friends this past Saturday and our home.  It was a blast!  Then on Sunday we went to Nana and Papa's house (Tim's parents) for lunch as we usually do on Sunday afternoons and had cake again for C's birthday! This morning I made birthday pancakes and we took C for dinner to Texas Roadhouse and then on to Build-A-Bear!!!! She is such a sweet little 1 year old!!! I adore her with all of my heart as does her daddy!!!

This is Caraline on her birth date!!!

and now at 1 year!!!

C's 1st birthday cake, a bear made special by her Nana and Papa! (her daddy also had a bear cake for his 1st bday)

And here are just a few fun decoration/party pics!!

And we can't forget the jupiter jump.lol! (not so sure what the neighbors thought about this but the cousins/friends really enjoyed it)

Cake again on Sunday! (think she loved that chocolate icing)
