Happy Valentine's Day!

I went a little heart crazy this year in honor of Valentine's Day.

I have never decorated for Valentine's Day before, but felt inspired this year.  I now have these hearts hanging in 3 different places around the house.

The Office:

The Living Room:
Our bedroom:
You can read more about the process here.

Have a lovely Valentine's Day with your loves....

(Here are my loves just for fun)

Happy Birthday Emily Kate

Another year has gone by. 
My sweet little Emily is four now. 
I feel like it was yesterday when I would rock her to sleep in the church nursery. 
Man, I miss that little baby girl!
Now, little Emi is cutest, most talkative girl I have ever met!
She is so funny and so sweet.
Her hugs melt my heart.
But, I still miss that innocent little baby...

This year, Emily decided she wanted Strawberry Shortcake's house for her birthday cake.
Here's how it turned out!

Don't you just want to open the door and go inside??

Emily loved her cake!! She just stared at it forever! So sweet!!

Here is the inside...

Her favorite color is pink :)

Here is the MacHarg family this past Halloween. I love all five of them so much!!! 
That's right!! I said FIVE!!! In August, there will be another little baby MacHarg!!!
I am so excited for Heather and Skip!! 

Here is a funny story about how I found out about this new addition:

The MacHarg's had been gone for a few weeks in Atlanta over Christmas. They are originally from Atlanta (where sister #3 now lives) and moved out here for Skip's job at Chick-fil-A. 
When they came home, Heather asked me to babysit. I came over and Heather was already gone taking Connor to school, so I didn't get a chance to talk to her. (I'm assuming this is why I didn't already know about the baby ;) right Heather?)
I played with Emily for a while and then took her to school and went on to pick Connor up from Kindergarten. 
As we're getting in the car and chatting, Connor nonchalantly says,
"Hey, did you know mommy's having a baby?"
Me: "What! Are you serious!?"
Connor--very casually: "Yeah, she really is. I think she's like nine weeks or something."
Me: "Seriously!!?? Connor, I don't think you're supposed to be telling people that."
This was followed with lots of excitement and the six year old shaking his head at me is if to say,
"Miss Kimmy, I don't understand why you are freaking out. It's not that big of a deal."

I love this family and I can't wait to meet the new baby!!

Happy Birthday Emily Kate!!!
