Lauren's 9th Birthday

Well our first born turned 9 on June 25th, wow how the time flies by.  We had another swim party (she gets jipped on the fun places for parties since we have a pool and it's so stinkin hot in Texas).   

This year instead of cake and ice cream we did a sundae bar.  I got small buckets and shovels from party city for .99 and had a bucket for gummy worms, crushed oreo's, m&m's and cherries.  We served them in waffle cone bowls and had chocolate or caramel topping and of course wipped cream.  The kids loved them..  Here are some pics.

As most of us do we go overboard with our kids when it come to present time.   Our family learned allot over the last 12 months with my husband being unemployed for 1 year to the date and me pregnant.  We learned that our kids just needed family, not gifts.  Don't get me wrong, they LOVE gifts, but at the end of the day that one gift that they ask for and keep asking for it's worth the money to see their face light up.  Well our gift to Lauren was a Pillow Pet.  Yes, it's a pillow, it's a pet, it's a Pillow Pet (sorry couldn't help myself).  She wanted the Dolphin and here is a picture of her.

Lastly, I got some pics of the girls after presents and in the pool.  Enjoy!

The picture above of the boy is my oldest son, Chase...He is a hoot!  Love his personality, it's just like his dad's.

That's all for now..will be back soon with more product updates and life updates.

You can add a zipper to a boppy cover this week only for FREE ($7 value).  You can mix/match minky's for your front and back and personalize all for $29.99.  Plus we are still running FREE SHIPPING.

I use invisible zippers which are great because it is located between the two fabrics and you can't see it so both sides are fully usable.

New Paisley Minky in Stock!!

These new paisley prints are so beautiful.  Your boppy pillow cover could be made on both sides with this material or you could do a solid color on one side and monogram your little one's name on it .  You can add an invisible zipper on any of my pillow covers for $5.  Typically my pillow covers are made like a pillow sham for easy on/off.  I have sold hundreds of these covers and use one myself for my lil'man.

Logan has Arrived

I know it's been a while since I've blogged.  Here is a picture of the nursery that we are sharing with Logan in our room for right now.  We are getting used to having a little one in our room but it has been nice to have him in there with us because he grunts for about 30 minutes before he actually wakes up.  

I finally gave birth to Logan Smith Whitaker on March 2nd at 8:04 a.m.  He weighed 11 lbs 4 oz and was 22" long.  I had a home birth and it was so amazing thanks to my midwife Ann Crowell.

Freaky Friday!!

It's Friday, WooHOO!  The week has flown by.  I am trying to get all the orders that I have completed as fast as I can so I can work on my etsy shop, my website and blog.  Oh yeah, not to mention it's tax season and my quarterly sales tax is due in a few weeks.  

Did I also mention that I am due with our 3rd child in 5 weeks and I don't have all my birthing supplies purchased yet!  We have his temporary room setup (in our room) except decorating his wall.  I will be posting pics as soon as that's completed.

It's crazy at Brownies n Butterflies but I am looking forward to an amazing 2010!    Have a great weekend!

Monogrammed Custom Bibs

I love these designer fabric bibs.  You can monogram them, as shown, or leave blank.  They are made from Amy Butler or Michael Miller designer fabric and mongrammed with a coordinating fabirc.  The back is made out of ivory, white or pink chenille and have made the closure out of snaps so your little one can pull it off.  The snap is also color coordinated.    Check out my etsy shop to purchase.
