spring break 2012

Camp was on spring break last week and part of this week. I decided that staying in town was probably the best idea with baby brother's due date quickly approaching! I was so worried that we'd be bored to tears, but the 11 days flew by pretty fast! I was sure missing my little buddy today while he was at school!! :) We had a low key, but fun week! 

Camp got to spend the night at Yaya & Bop Bop's one night...he was so proud of his backpack!

Lunch at Chick-fil-A and a little playground time!

We baked  few goodies I found on Pinterest...

these were sooo yummy! They are just a typical chocolate chip cookie dough (without the chocolate chips) baked in mini muffin tins. I dyed vanilla frosting green and then added Cadbury eggs!

Carrot cupcakes...these were too easy and tasted scrumptious!

We had several play dates including a day at the pool...Camp had a blast!

Hanging out with "kids" is Camp's favorite thing to do!! :)

Daddy shot a turkey early in the season this year...thank goodness because his turkey season may be cut short once Collins arrives! :) This was Camp's face when he realized Adam had the turkey.

Two happy Gunter boys...

On a lunch date...

It was a nice week, but I'm sure glad to be back into our routine. I know Camp is glad to be back at school...he sure missed his friends! 


spring has sprung

Adam's birthday was last Friday...the big 2-9!
Camp was so excited to give Daddy his birthday gifts!

I got Adam a silhouette made of Camp and I am absolutely in love with it. I think it looks just like him! Can't wait to get one of Collins.

Adam's birthday cake made by yours truly...it's his fave...yellow cake with chocolate frosting!

Camp was pretty excited about the cake and helped Adam blow out the candles!

On Sunday, Adam and I took Camp to see The Lorax...cute movie! As always, Camp had to get in some game time. He played for about 10 minutes...no tokens required. :)

Camp spent the night with Yaya & Bop Bop last night and Adam and I went out on our 2nd date in a week...so much fun! I got crazy and ordered the tastiest pina colada...minus the rum, of course! 

Happy Spring!!


showered with love

On Saturday, my sweet friends threw the baby shower of the century for our new little guy...everything was just perfect. The theme was vintage garden...and I loved all of the precious touches. This was at the front door...too cute!

And baby brother finally has a name!! :)

Beautiful centerpiece

yummy cookies all the way from Birmingham!

the food was fantastic...mmm!

adorable forks wrapped up to look like carrots..."would you carrot all for one?" courtesy of Holly. :)

the fabulous hostessess...they went above and beyond and I was definitely feeling the love. I had so much fun and I didn't want the party to be over! :)
 It was the perfect shower and I'm so thankful for these sweet girls! Adam, Camp, Collins, and I are soooo extremely blessed with such wonderful family and friends. 

Now all we are waiting for is baby brother!!!

this and that

Not much going on in the Gunter household these days...we are counting down the days until sweet baby brother makes his appearance! People like to tell me that there's no way I will make it to my due date, that I've dropped, and that it must be any day until he's here...why is it that total strangers feel the need to give unsolicited advice/comments?? :) 
before school one day last week...
This sweet boy went fishing with Daddy and Bop Bop yesterday...Adam told me that while they were out in the boat, Camp put his arm around him and his head on his shoulder and said "we're best friends". Melt my heart!! I'm telling you, this buddy is as sweet as they come!!

Camp had his first 'friend from school' birthday party a few weeks ago...it was so cute and I loved seeing Camp have so much fun! He got to experience a pinata for the first time!

Once the candy fell, he ran in, grabbed one piece of candy, came over to me and said "I got it!!!" I told him to go back in for more!! :)

the party was absolutely adorable...

looking forward to many more parties!

This is our office nook...I always say this is the reason we bought our house...I love having a separate place for our computer and printer, but it's so hard to make it look nice and neat. I've wanted to make a curtain to cover the shelves above and hide all of my crafts and junk! I realized I had enough fabric from recovering our dining room chairs and I got to work. It makes this area look so much more organized...just don't peak behind the curtain! :)

I had a sweet, sweet baby shower this weekend and I can't wait to share pictures!! We just got a new internet provider and I'm amazed at how fast I'm zooming through cyberspace now!!! Hopefully that means I will blog a lot more now...maybe not though!! :)
