Samantha's First Birthday!

We celebrated Samantha's first birthday this past weekend! Barry's mom, Karen Mills is an artist when it comes to cakes and she made this adorable number one cake for Sam!
Samantha got her first doll and she was very excited about it! It's actually the first girl toy we've gotten!
Needless to say, she loved the cake!
She was not happy about getting cleaned up though, I think she just wanted more cake.

I love my big baby girl! She brings a smile to all our faces and she just adores her daddy and Jordan. She can sort of say all our names now, which is nice. She was only saying "dada" for too long. I love that she calls me "mom-mom" when she wants me! Thank you to everyone who has been so loving and supportive through this crazy first year of Samantha's life! We are so very grateful for all the friends and family who have been there for us. we are truly blessed!

Barry as Chester

What have we done?!?!  Tonight we dyed Barry's mustache black and yikes!!!   We shaved his head but he thinks the hat makes a more dramatic look.  The dye looked light brown when we applied it and then it took about 5 minutes to darken.  We both busted up laughing when we saw this develop!  Barry can't believe how awful he looks and I can't even kiss him like that!  Needless to say I don't see this lasting a full month.  I definitely think he's earned the "Chester" Award with this though, don't you?  
Go ahead and give Barry the mocking he deserves for this crazy bet.... he can take it.
