Tea for 2: Family Fun

Okay, last post on Cassy's party.  But I had to share a great idea my hubby had.
He had me compile all of Cassy's pictures and make them into a slide show.
Then he hooked the laptop up to the T.V. screen so that everyone could watch while they mingled.
I didn't add any music because I knew it would already be noisy with 31 people, so we didn't need more commotion.

Anyway, after I edited and deleted the not so good pictures, I was able to cut it back to 575!
I won't share them all with you, but I want to share a few of my favorites.

 This little girl really pushed me to the limit.
After 3 other babies, I faced one of my biggest fears and got an epidural.
Just after they finished the epidural, the doctor discovered she had down a flip since my appointment the day before and was now breech.  They had already broken my water, so an inversion didn't work (thought I was grateful  I had listened to the Spirit and gotten that epidural.)
They told me I was going to have to face my second and greatest fear.  A c-section.
I was scared out of my mind, but the doctors and my hubby were great.
They got me through it just fine, and it was so worth it when I held Miss Cassidy for the first time.

I know this one is fuzzy, but I couldn't resist sharing her first Easter.

I love this tender little moment.
Charly is such the little mommy!
I took all the girls' pictures in this hat
and made a scrapbook page for Daddy that said
Happy Father's Day
from you little "Deeres"

Halloween 2010
Cassy loved sledding so much that she refused to get out of the sled and ended up falling asleep in it!

Oh how I love this little girl!
I am so blessed to have her in my life
And look forward to many more years!


  1. Aww, how sweet! What a beautiful tribute your your precious little girl. :) Mine is turning 1 in June, and I'm going to try my best to hold back the tears! haha!

  2. She's so stinkin' cute!

    I was terrified of a c-section as well, and they pushed in an unnecessary one with our 4th baby....but it wasn't that bad!

  3. What a sweetheart. She's all smiles. Happy birthday to your little angel.

  4. Great pictures!!! Love the John Deere hat... :) My husband works for Deere here in Iowa! Can't say I have a fancy pink hat like that one though... :)
