Crafting :)

My little love bug designing his Halloween creatures....
We had fun and I loved watching his little chubby fingers push down the pieces! LOL And, I was excited to be able to use some old crafts from my teaching years!!

I like his better than mine!!

30th Bday Celebrations!!

Turning 30 wasn't bad at all! :) It was wonderful!! Could be one of my favorites!

Here are some pics from my birthday out at my parents' home!! We had a fun, relaxing night full of my favorite food and of course there were some silly 30th decorations. :)
My little family :)

He will always be the center of attention :)

So, last night I truly thought Trent and I were headed to date night. Trent said he wanted a good steak and I wanted to see a movie. :) Turns out my family's plans were WAY better than that :). 
Headed to date night! When we get to the restaurant one my best friends from college was sitting at the table with her husband! They drove in from STL. I screamed and couldn't stop hugging her!!! :) 
This is her!! Gina! :)

Then, we come home and there's a party!!!!!!!!
Sissy and my mom truly outdid themselves. Everything was just SO cute! 

The caramel apple bar....yummy!!!!

Hot apple cider and pom-poms everywhere!

So sweet to hear about 25 dear friends and family singing Happy Birthday. God has blessed me with the most incredible friends and family! And, I so appreciated the sweet phone calls and kind gifts on my birthday from sweet friends and family far away! Wish you lived in Lexington!!

Ruffle cake :) 
Sissy is SO crafty!

The Birthday Project

Pinned Image

My 30th was truly special and exactly the 'calm' that I wanted. :) To be around my family for a beautiful day and dinner was 'so me'. That's what I do! Just love my family and love being together.

One of my sister's sweet gifts to me was this "Birthday Project" you'll see below. She thought for my 30th, we could celebrate with helping others in 30 different ways. I was just blown away by how sweet this was. Plus I'll get a whole day with my sister to do 30 random acts of kindess. I can't wait! We are going to make our own list, but there are ideas listed on the website below of different charities, etc.

Thanks sister for wanting to make the world and us better! :)

PS: My blog will let me add pictures, but they are all different colors. Can anyone help?? :)

Yep, we're busy as we can be and I'm sorry to be SO far behind on the posts!! :)

Few updates on the Waltz Family:

  • Collins turned 20 months! He's starting to really use his words and I'm so proud of him!
  • If we go a week without a bruise I'm a happy mommy :) 
  • Collins is still in his crib and will be until he climbs out!
  • He still eats about everything but veggies...still wants them in baby food form?!
  • I turn 30 in less than a week! Whoa baby. So thankful for so much!
  • Trent is just the best and is staying busing with conference call after conference call xo (Thank you for all you do for our family!) He can be found in the basement playing pop-a-shot, tickling Collins, trying to get the pool closed for the winter, or with me! 
  • I've been busy with teaching Sunday school to 9 year olds, teaching 2 year olds about Jesus, going to a grown up bible study and mom group :), escorting children/adult authors around town to their events, helping my church out with singing and their website, and the best? Being a mommy :).
