Princess P's party!

I realized I never posted these pictures of Preslee's birthday party! It was a Princess crown theme and it turned out so fun and cute!

We had it at a local event center which was just a big open room. My dad grilled burgers and hotdogs, Lisa and her sisters made dips, pink popcorn, & pretzel rods. Then I got crown cookies, cake and cupcakes from our favorite bakery in NWA, Rick's bakery! The party was a great turnout and the kids had so much fun playing with all the riding toys! 

  
Loved having my friends and their babies there to celebrate!


 Aunt KK made that precious balloon number 1! 
 My sweet friend, Carrie and Emmett! Love these two and so happy to live in the same town as them now! 
 Uncle Andy and the birthday girl! 


 She loved the cake! 


 I loved having my family there to celebrate my baby's first birthday! 
 We sure missed Matt but I know he would have been proud that we still had a big birthday for our princess!
  Most importantly, I think P had a great 1st birthday!!

You my friend are not only gorgeous, GOD loving and a great momma but you are the biggest inspiration and you go on for your Preslee as I go on for my Kelcee! I know our stories are way different mine is fighting to stay alive yours is about Matt, but we both keep on going! I can't begin to fathom what you are going through but I do now like Winston Churchill says when you are walking through hell keep on going and that is what you are doing just as I am! I love the kissy kissy pictures of you and your precious P and the crowns that adorn your beautiful heads! I love the number one balloon all the friends and family you will see support and that girl of yours will get you through! Pinky promise! K gets me through everyday! I just bounce up no matter if I just had chemo or heard more bad news and I play with my K and I be the best momma I can be and let GOD be in control of the rest! You inspire me and can I say holy gorgeous you are! You look like you could win Mrs. America no joke!

LOVE YOU
Summer

Julee,

Praying for peace and comfort, my deepest desire for you. I have said this before and it seems so appropriate today. Our good and generous God has designed our hearts with infinite elasticity, able to hold equal parts joy and sorrow. May your heart hold more joy that sorrow as you watch your P delight in Christmas while grieving your beloved Matt.

God bless you Julee!

Cara Beth said...

So proud of you, Julee. Keep on keepin' on. Preslee is so blessed to have you as her momma. Loveee you!

The birthday party looked so sweet. I hope you and Preslee had a wonderful Christmas. Preslee is so lucky to have such a beautiful Mama!

Hi julee and preslee:)
We're thinking of you today on Matt's birthday. We've chosen to give lots of bright crayons, markers, and coloring pencils to our local children's hospital in honor of Matt's birthday to brighten a child's day while inpatient. This children's hospital is special to us because our son required a one week stay almost a year ago when hecwas just a month old. (He and P are about a month apart). The hospital was so kind to us, and we knew we were receiving such great care.

Love to you and P,
The crownovers.

Praying for you today, Julee.

May God's blessings and peace be evident in each moment today.

Love & hugs from Michigan!

I check back often to see if you've written anything new... I just love to read what y'all are up to! :-)

Somehow, I missed this post. P is such a sweetheart! Looks like she had an incredible birthday party!

I pray y'all are well, honey. All my love!

Dina said...

Have had you on my mind lately. I pray all is well:) Blessings to you and Preslee!

Kischa said...

Julee, Thank you so much for being such an inspiration. I can't recall how I came across your blog... I was blog hopping and then came across the silent auction post. The Lord works in mysterious ways... and I praise Him for that. I had to pause and say a prayer for you and Miss P and Romeo too. I pray that all is well with you and that the Lord would fill you with His peace, love, grace and mercy! Tears are streaming down my face right now as I type this. You have no idea how your posts have touched me. You are such a beautiful person inside and out... there is no doubt that Matt is smiling and so proud of you and the way you continue to live your life. Oh and side note... I love !!! too and run on sentences are a bad habit of mine! Ha ha!!!!!!! Okay, I wouldn't have put that many but thought I would for kicks! Thank you again Julee for being a Christ Lover and showing others what it's like to have Agape Love! May He richly bless you and keep you centered in His palm! Happy Blessed Birthday Pressley!!! <3 your new subscriber from Maui!
