A Birthday + A Christening

We celebrated both of my babies two weekends ago and I wanted to do a mini recap on those! I know I don't share a ton of personal updates but this was a special weekend for everyone. Maybe I will get better about sharing more weekend recaps etc - but let me tell you, its a lot of work for doing that. Major props to those bloggers that keep up with it all! 

First up, my sweet Weeks' Fourth Birthday. He wanted a jeep and golf themed cake :) Our baker did a perfect job executing it! I also set up a black chalkboard runner on the table that I wrote little messages on. The food went on the table- I know it looks sparse in the pic and I didn't get one when lunch was served. We had hamburgers, hotdogs, hashbrown casserole, and at the last minute I got some frozen Nathan's Onion Rings {which were SO good! Such a good side thats easy and who doesn't like onion rings?}

Weeks was so excited when it was time to sing Happy Birthday to him with his cake presented! It was so sweet.

Weeks got a fun new swingset for his birthday from both sets of Grandparents. I know the kids are going to have a blast this summer on it! This was right after going down the slide the first time!

The next day we were up early for Frances Ann's Christening! Thankfully both kids did great on the front row of the church and Weeks nodded off during the sermon, ha! I was worried how Frances Ann would react during the actual baptism but she did great. 

You can find my dress and shoes here. This dress line is one of my favorites. A designer style but priced fairly, and such a classic look! This would be perfect for Easter in a few weeks. The shoes are not only so pretty, but so comfy- I wore them all morning up until after lunch with no problems. The heel is the perfect height. I fell in love with them last fall and they are on sale now!

We had brunch at my parent's beach house afterwards and my Mom set up fresh potted flowers, pictures of my sweet girl, and of course, another cake! It was perfectly simple and sweet for the occasion. Our menu was fabulous too: roast beef tenderloin sliders, ham biscuits, broccoli salad, fruit salad and twice baked potato casserole. 

We even got a decent family photo, minus FA being her curious self! I will take it though...love them to pieces!
