Happy Birthday MaKenna

Happy birthday to my sweet little girl, MaKenna!
She turned 2 on December 30th. I thought it would be fun to have it themed Olivia because it is one of her favorite shows! It took me some time to make the banner but she loved it!

I love this picture of my dad and Makie. My dad is such an amazing Grandpa! Makie loves her grandpa and the fact that he plays with her and her baby dollies!

*Cute lil Kinzley*

Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Makie, Happy birthday to YOU!!

My big girl!

Delicious cupcake!

Thanks to our family who came despite the previous day it had snowed a ton!! We love you guys and MaKenna loved all of her gifts!

Merry Christmas 2010

Better late than never! This past year I decided that the Wilkins family needed to start a tradition. So, my mom and I planned a Christmas party with all of us at my house. We usually just get together on Christmas day but to me, that just wasn't enough. Oh and to make it a fun party, I decided it should be an ugly sweater Christmas party. We had a blast!!

Adam the winner of the ugliest sweater! It was a beauty!

Edyn with her cute sweater!

Dad and Dave...kinda a dark pic though
Dennis lecturing my mom about something. And Kylee with her mouth full. hahah

Mitzi and AJ frosting the cinnamon rolls. Those are AJ's specialty. SO YUMMY!!

This Christmas was centered around MaKenna. She was in heaven Christmas morning.

MaKenna got a new table to build with legos, a house from grammy and papa and a car so she can go fast!
I attempted to make stockings myself this year and they turned out pretty good!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know we did!

Kai's Birthday

I wanted to post a couple pictures from my nephew's birthday. The theme was "pirates" and it is so perfect for Kai's personality! It was a blast!!

GRRRR.... I'm Pirate Makie!

Cute Pirate Edyn

Each kid took turns to try to open the pirate chest to see the treasures inside!


The birthday boy himself, Kai


Jackpot!! Look at all the fun treasures!

Now if only I was half as handy as this lady!
This blog is incredible. This lady is inspiring me to become the handy man in the family. No dissing my husband in all but boy his hands are softer than mine!!! I kept showing him projects this lady has made and while I was at it I was throwing in a little...."See SHE made this" and "Wow, the LADY can make anything". No offense taken by Dave, his reply was "Well then, since SHE can make those items so can you." Not what I was going for but I guess I can do it too then. Of course with a little help of my father in law who has to be the best handy man around. When he is finished working on my brothers basement, I may have to borrow him for a few easy project that have to be made. Now, which project should I do first??? What do you think?

Go to for the great ideas!
