Arden is 1... and other fun fall stuff!

That's right, our sweet baby girl is ONE and we cannot believe it!
Her birthday party was a big success...so much fun and so cute!
It was perfect for her. I just loved all of the planning and decorating and seeing it all come together.
Here are some of my favorite pics from the day!

Arden,
At 1 year old, you are such a complete joy and so much fun already!
Your little personality is really emerging and we just love you so much.
You are a big girl now, walking all over the place.
You are trying so hard to talk and love to babble.
You know where your ears and nose are and can blow kisses.
You can point to things if mommy says "where is _____". You look..and then pat/point whatever I am asking you for. You are so smart already!
You love to snuggle and give the best hugs.
You are so funny and bring us so much happiness!
Just slow down and don't grow up so fast, okay?
Mommy and daddy and big brother Nolan love you so much!


On another note, fall is just the best, isn't it?
We have been in full "fall" swing around here. The weather has been beautiful, so we have been enjoying lots of outdoor events such a parades, festivals, pumpkin patches, etc. Really anything we can do outside as a family and we are there!
We are housecleaning and organizing for our BIG community garage sale this weekend and I cannot WAIT to get all the stuff out of the garage.
Yes, I am major OCD, and I cannot stand a cluttered garage.
I have a few projects I want to do for next weekend already once we get all of that over with.
We also have family pictures this weekend, too!  Stay tuned!

Here are some pictures of some things we have been doing lately...
