This past week, we went to Branson MO and stayed in an awesome, peaceful cabin.
Branson, is 3 1/2 hours south east of us. Its a tourist place, but it was so much fun!
The weather was beautiful all but one day.
We took the kids to an arcade one of the days and we had a blast. I think Jake and I had more fun playing the games and winning the tickets and the girls loved picking out prizes.
The girls have really become best friends in the last few weeks. They even tell each other they are best friends! Isn't that cute!
Harp, has his 3rd tooth coming in at the top.
He actually took 2 steps at the cabin but hasn't taken anymore since then.
Back to real life tomorrow. Jake goes back to work and we go back to our daily routine.

I booked my very first wedding, for photography. The bride emailed me and we met on Saturday. She's getting married in June. I have two other brides that have contacted me as well. One for another June and one for November. I can't even explain how excited I am!

Happy 1st Birthday Harper

Wednesday January 5th, was Harper's first birthday!
I'm not sure where the last year has gone.
We celebrated the day with a ton of errands, to get ready for his party on Friday. We also had lunch at Chick fila.
He didn't eat lunch but everyone else did!
The girls have had Chick Fila, maybe 3 times in their lives, so Kamy didn't even know what to think about a chicken nugget. I think she didn't really like it.
Anyways, we had Harps birthday yesterday. We celebrated it at 1:00pm and we actually had the party outside on the deck! The kids got to play on the swing set.
It was gorgeous out, 60s and sunny. We did a zoo themed party. Complete with games, snacks and chocolate covered frozen banana's for the "cake." They were yummy, a hit with the kids and parents. Harp, had a banana layered, yogurt cake. When your parents eat healthy, you do not get sugar on your first birthday! He loved it and did a classic "let me just dig my face in this." Our girls never did that. They were very picky at getting dirty. I guess that's the difference between boys and girls.
It was fun and he had fun!
Happy 1st Birthday Harper Caid!
