Beautiful designs by kyanke designs!

My best friend and her sister do photography and graphic design as a hobby and are really really good at it! I've posted many of the pictures they have taken for us before, so I just had to show just a few of the invitations they have done for my family! This is their website if you in need of some creativity!

This is our 2010 Christmas card, I wanted these colors with leopard and this is the beautiful design they came up with!

This is Brielle's first birthday invitation, I came up with the idea and told them the colors I wanted and this is their finished product, fantastic huh!

A Princess is ONE!

Brielle you are 12 months old!!!!!! what are you up to......

*You have said your first Spanish word "Gracias"
*You can show us with your fingers that your one
*You press your lips together in an "O" shape when you say uh oh. To cute!
*You stand by yourself for a little bit
*You have taken 2 steps a few different times
*You like shutting doors , mom hates it!
*You have 6 teeth
*You weigh 20 1/2 lbs and are 29 ½ inches long
*I like to poke your cheeks like I did when your were newborn to get you to turn in my direction to eat to see if you will still do it and you do! I love it, I guess it makes me feel like your still a baby and reminds me of when you were nursing.
*you like to roll on ground and have daddy roll you around as well
*you think anything is funny
*you have learned how to turn your sippy around the right way,
*you walked across the living room several times. It was a week and a half after your first b-day! Then two weeks after that you are a regular walker!
*you know when we are leaving and start saying bye bye and waving even before we tell you to
*you love to say "Hi" all the time to anyone and everyone
*you can show us where your ear is
*you bark like a dog, moo like a cow and quack like a duck
*you love to hold the phone up to your ear or just your hand sometimes and say "HI"
*you havn't become a picky eater but it is much harder to get you to eat now a days, you just get bored and like to throw your food and spit it out, hopefully this will be a short phase
*still wearing size 3 diapers

I can't believe you are one, your are the love of my life and this has been the best year of our lives all because of you!

I totally thought I posted about Brielle's 1st birthday but apparently I forgot! Been to busy I guess. So here are her 12month facts and her 1st birthday party pictures....

She would not dig into her birthday cake so I had to mash her hands into it! Even then she would only eat little pieces, I guess she didn't want to get messy.

I have to say, I did get a little teary eyed when she was eating her cake, I have been to so many kids 1st birthday parties and it never seemed my baby would be turning one! It's exciting and so sad all at the same time.

opening her special "mr Derrick" bear from uncle Derrick

I made her Birthday outfit, I found one I liked but it was outrageous, so I decided to make it for a quarter of the price, I guess watching my mom sew all those years really paid off.

The decorations on the tables were brightly colored pumpkins and pictures we had taken of Brielle all year long.

It was a great party with wonderful friends and lots of family! I thought this day would never get here and now it has come and gone, on to two years!

Landon took off on Brielle's actual birthday so we could all spend the day together, first we took her to Denny's for breakfast

She got to color for the first time, she broke all of the crayons : )

Then we were off to Jump and Jive, It's so nice to be able to take your kid somewhere indoors to burn off energy when it's too cold to play outside and it was free cause she is still so little!
