After Lillie's mini party we headed off to Hilton Head Island. This is a very special place for Brad and I since it is where he took me to propose! We had so much fun just having time to relax and do a whole lot of nothing! Brad got to play golf with his friend that lives out there and I got to go shopping!! The kids loved the beach and they were not really that scared to go in. We had some family pictures made down by the Harbour Town Lighthouse since this is where Brad popped the questions and our family began!
We had a small first birthday party for Lillie on the 15th. It was just the four of us and Gran and Grandad. Both of the kids had been a little sick so we decided to keep it small and not risk getting anyone else sick.
I attempted to make her cake like I did for Evan, it was a pink octopus in case you can not tell by the picture. I thought it was very fitting of her since she seems to grown extra arms in a matter of seconds!! She got some toys and some clothes. We got her a pink chair with her name on it which she loves. She loved eating her cake and ice cream and loved being the center of attention while we sang to her!!! Thank you Leslie for the precious Tutu that you sent her. I could not resist putting her in it for the day since she was the Party Princess!! The party hats I used for decoration but I had really made them for her 1st birthday pictures that we had made on Friday. (If our photographer posts a pic of her on his website I will let everyone know because they turned out awesome!!!)

The kids started Kids Day Out today at one of the local churchs. It was a little sad since they have been my two little shadows for a while now. I was a little worried about Lillie since she has not stayed with anyone except my mom. It was pouring rain when we arrived so I had to run carrying both of them under a tiny umbrella. I dropped off Lillie first and she seemed to be okay. We know lots of the other kids in her class. Then I took Evan to his class, He really did not want to leave Lillie (he is very protective over her). I had to run back out to the car to get their stuff and he just stood at the door yelling for me. Lillie then saw me and stood at her door and started whining. It made me a little sad but I know that they will enjoy some time playing with the other kids. Hopefully when I go to pick them back up they will have good reports!!!
