happy one month to Lily and some sneak peeks

It's hard to believe that a month has gone by already since our sweet Lily was born! Funny thing is, I had to correct myself as I first wrote "happy one month to Aimee" in the title of this post and had to go back and fix it. We were so used to Aimee being the baby for so long and then our little surprise came along when we least expected it. We thought we wouldn't be able to have any more kids and just when we thought we were done I was at the dr. because I was sick with a sinus infection or something and the doctor ran some extra I was leaving the building the doctor caught me and told me that I was pregnant as well.

THAT news threw our world for a loop for sure but we are so grateful for the sweet joy little Lily brings to our family. Now if only we could get her to sleep with all of the crazy noise her older sisters make!

Today is also the last day of school for Hailey and we'll have a whole summer to figure out what to do with. We have a list of things we'd like to do, places we'd like to go and you can bet that I have a list of "honey-do's" as well. I'd love to give the house a thorough cleaning and go through and de-junk and GIVE AWAY a lot of stuff that is cluttering our home and our lives. No, we're not ready to go on "Hoarders" but we DO  have too much stuff and I'd love to simplify a bit. I am done with having piles of things here and there. I am more of an "everything has a place and everything in its place" kind of person.

I have been doing some scrapping lately but since it's been for assignments I haven't been able to share- but I will soon. Here are some sneaks of what I've been up to:

Yes, that's the new Watermelon Gazpacho from Jillibean Soup- SO CUTE!!

and some more Watermelon Gazpacho- have I mentioned how much I love this line? 

Margarita collection from American Crafts

and a couple of pages from My Little Shoebox:

I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I think we should do a giveaway- what do you think? 

Say hi and tell me about something you are planning to do this summer. ☺

She is adorable!!! I can't believe it has been a month already. She is just gorgeous.

She's so adorable! I'm with Carol, lets see how teeny she is! We're not doing much this summer. Just our normal reunions. I'm totally okay with that as this month has been really hard on us and I'd just like to have a nice, boring summer! :)

Oh isn't she cute. I can't wait to see the FULL layouts. The sneaks are stunning. This summer, well lots of family outings (we love day trips) and landscaping our garden.

A month already?!? Wow,that went by so fast. Happy first month on earth Lily! Hope your summer break is off to a great start Becky. This will be our first summer in this home and I'm really hoping the kids will make some new friends around here, so rather than disappearing off to the lake we're going to stick around here a more. Here's hoping my plan works.
