Somebunny is one

I haven't blogged in almost a month. Yikes!

We've been pretty busy around here. 

It's finally nice(ish) outside so we've been raking stuff out of our flower beds, trimming trees, getting deck furniture out, etc. Getting outside as much as we can with the kiddos - walking to the parks, swinging on swings, kicking the soccer ball around. etc. 

We've been busy hosting family and friends at our house for numerous events. And along with the hosting comes the planning, organizing, grocery shopping and cleaning. We hosted Liam's birthday party at end of February. Then in March/April I hosted Crafty Club, we had Chloe's birthday party, we hosted Gourmet Club and Matt had guys over for Craftsmen club. We also took a trip to Wisconsin Dells and are heading to northern Wisconsin soon for my uncle's funeral (rest in peace, uncle Ron).

So there's been a lot of things keeping us busy. 

I'm grateful to be busy though. I'm not complaining. I'm sticking to my motto (especially when I'm feeling stressed about hosting/planning so many things) that I'd rather be busy than bored.

We had Chloe's First Birthday party at our house early in April. We invited our immediate families and it was bunny themed. Here are some photos from her birthday and birthday party:

The day of Chloe's birthday -

1) playing in her jammies
2) birthday breakfast (cheese and peas)
3) making a kissy-face while out for dinner
4) riding on her new Rody horse

What's a first birthday without mom taking a hundred photos...

Oh how I love these little feet...

In the afternoon we went bowling. I don't think Chloe had a spectacular time, but she sat nicely while Liam, Matt and I bowled. This was Liam's first time bowling, and Matt and I haven't bowled in about 4-5 years.

1) Liam the rock star, bowling at 4.9 mph
2) Chloe clapping at us
3) getting tips from dad
4) our scores (let me remind you, we haven't bowling in a long time)

That evening we sang to The Chloester...

...and she thoroughly enjoyed her very first cupcake!

The day of her birthday party -

We had people over for brunch, a bloody mary bar/mimosas, gift opening and cake.

It was bunny themed.

Baby bunnies anyone?

Bunny food? (individual veggies + dip cups)

I made her a little bunny cake. The fuzzy tail was my favorite part :)

And she opened her plentiful amount of gifts.

Got a cool sun hat...

Had fun with her family...

...and got to eat another "first cupcake"!

So dainty...licking each finger

Our sweet little one-year-old!

We also celebrated with her cousins when we were in Wisconsin Dells.
Yet another cupcake!

My gosh...she's almost 13 months old already...

We love you Chloe!
