Evelyn helped Daddy vacuum the stairs...
And helped Mommy dust.
Watching for Grammie and Grandad
Grandad always finds fun things to do with littles
(and wears that Notre Dame shirt just to get a rise out of me!)
She was a big fan of the bubble blower they gave her (still is!)
Evelyn's party was Saturday afternoon. Sofia the First on Disney Junior is one of Evelyn's favorite shows, so we had a princess themed party for her. Because Sofia the First is a new show, there wasn't really any party things like plates or decorations, so I pretty much stuck to a generic princess theme (lots of pink and purple, though!). Here are some pictures of the afternoon (just for you, Em and Nicole!).
These were some of the decorations I had...I chose a picture from each month of the past year and added a promise to us being daughters of the King with a correlating Bible verse.
A closer look at one of them
One picture before the party started
(it's fuzzy because we live in dumb south Texas where you have to wait for an hour to use your camera outside because it's so humid)
Playing in her sand/water table
(this quickly became a mud table when some of the older kids got to the party)
Playing with one of her best friends, Isaiah
(it cracks me up because they are actually a year apart in age, but pretty much the same size!)
I was surprised how long she left this tiara on!
This is the first picture of my Mom, Evelyn, and I that we have ever taken...seriously?

Having some dinner
Time for some cake!
And ice cream!
And now to open presents...she loves this trike from Grammie and Grandad
(and will hopefully be able to reach the pedals in a month or two!)
Having some tea with her new tea set that goes in the bath with her
