Pumpkins And Donuts - Georgie's First Birthday Party



Georgiana Bea turns one year old in about a week!  I might be in denial a little bit.

We are going to be buried in boxes and renovations on her actual birthday, so we decided to have her first birthday party a couple weeks early while we are still in this house!  It seems fitting to have her first birthday party here, since this is where we brought her home when she was just tiny.  

Our last party in this house.  I am a little sentimental about it.  We've celebrated so much here, from our very first gender reveal party, through all the kids' birthday parties, and now this is the last one.  I can't believe my tiny little baby is almost one year old!

I decided to go with a autumn/donut theme, because it was easy to pull off.  It ended up being perfect to celebrate our sweet girl and send this house out in style.  

I got most of the decorations from the Target dollar spot and Hobby Lobby.  My friend Danae did the lettering for Georgie's wood sign (which will now live in her room at the new house).  I told my sister I wanted a simple sprinkle cake this time (she's the master cake decorator in this family), and she made it come to life!  

The centerpiece of our donut-themed party was the donut peg board, which Derek made for the party (I got the idea from Ashley's gorgeous baby sprinkle).  It all came together really well!  I am so thankful for my family and friends who helped me put it all together this time.  I love going all out for the first birthday party, and this one was so easy with everyone's help!























How is my itty bitty baby so big?











I let Georgie have a taste of cake when we took birthday pictures a few weeks ago, so at the party it didn't take her long to remember that cake is pretty good!





It was so good to celebrate one last time in this house, with our dear family and friends.  I'm glad we had a chance to celebrate our baby girl here.  I might have cried a little after the party was over.  It's bittersweet, leaving this house, and watching your last baby turn one.  

But good things are on the horizon too.

Where My Babies Slept (Nursery Tour)



T-minus 8 days until we close on our new house!  I wanted to show you the last corner of our first home before we leave it.

This room is one of the harder ones to leave.  It's gone through many transformations over the years, from blue airplanes, to pink and purple flower garden, to orange and turquoise ocean-themed, to coral and mint florals.  Each of my babies have slept in here at one point or another.  This is how it looks right now, how I decorated it for our last baby, Georgie.  It's hard to leave it, especially since she turns one year old in a couple weeks.  I labored over that quilt when my belly was so big I couldn't pick up the needle when I dropped it.  I rocked her when she was only as big as a loaf of bread, right in that chair.

The only thing missing is the rows of family photos that were on the wall right above the bookshelf - I took pictures of it before I took them down for showings, but I accidentally deleted the photos, so aside from one photo from my phone, you'll have to use your imagination.  Still, I'm glad I found time to snap a few more shots of this room amidst all the packing that is happening this week. I want to remember the place where each of my babies slept.

That's it, guys!  Our whole house, all the rooms in our first home.  We've had so many milestones here, so many good memories, and a few tears.  This house has been good to us, and the Lord saw us through it all and blessed us here.

Goodbye, First House.
