Robot Party-Part One---Decor






It was a double party for Harrison and his cousin Dawson (who was born 4 days after him). We had tons of fun!! I had been thinking about and planning this party for about 1 month with lots of help from my Sister-in-law Jessie and Emily (Dawson's mom) and my mom. (thanks guys:)


First off, you see the "Picture banners" that Jessie and Nikki helped create.

Then those beautiful cupcakes with Cupcake toppers by Yours truly:) (and then Jessie helped finish them up while I put Harrison to bed)

The signs for the food (made once, again by Jessie) read such things as 'Wiring','Computer Chips, 'Nuts & Bolts' 'robot Fuel'....in other words super cute!!

Next is the picture is that Handsome little Harrison wearing the Robot shirt that Grandma Pammy made for him ( and she made Dawson a matching one as well.....so cute)

And we also had a "Robo-tize" yourself set up for pictures....you see me and Harrison(the cutest little Robot ever!) My dad made this for us, I think I am going to keep it as a permanent fixture at my house, anyone want to make themselves into a robot come on over and take a picture!

I have pictures of the banners and the tables but need to load them on my computer, so you will see those as soon as I do.

This party was so much fun to put together and I had a lot (i mean a LOT) of help, especially considering that both the boys came down with strep one week before the party (which caught up to me, mid-week....luckily Adam was spared, I swear, that man has an immunity system of steel:)

Anyway, I will post more soon, this is just a preview...
I just can't believe my little boy is ONE!!!!??!!
It has been the greatest year of my life!!
He is such a good boy! I consider myself very lucky to have been sent this little boy and get to be his mommy.

What a DIFFERENCE a year makes





(not the best quality of pictures, but good enough to see what a handsome boy I've got...toot my own horn much?? toot, toot:)
Last night as I was playing with Harrison to help him get the wiggles out before bed, I had an epiphany! Well, not really, but I was thinking of how different our lives were one year ago!

We were awaiting our little boy's arrival...and finally he came...and time started moving in super speed!! Them a certain someone upstairs (:) decided we needed a kick in the pants and a lot of changes started coming our way. We have changed jobs, towns (while still in the same area, it really feels like in another state:) changed wards, schools. Pretty much everything around us changed, but we are all healthy and happy to be here together and know that we have lessons to be learned and opportunities to be open to.

I was going to say so much more, talk about the lessons I have learned about Friendships and making new friends (not as easy as it seems in fact, you actually have to leave the house and put yourself out there:) and then I looked over at Harrison and realized I would much rather play with him, then write at the computer about things that are really not as important :)

Are you jealous that I am hugging and kissing that little bug, even as I type ? You should be, it is the cutest thing to hear his laugh and his "talking".

I'll come back soon (while he is napping) to talk the 1st Birthday party(Robot theme) I am planning for him and more:)
