Today marks a big milestone for Sadie Fay and I. My little bug had her first day of preschool today! She has been talking about going to preschool for at least a year now; saying she was excited about it would definitely be an understatement. I can't believe she is going to be four in a couple of weeks! It's days like today I realize how fast she is growing up. It has to stop i can't take it!!!
Here are a few pictures of my little cutie on her first day.
(Sorry for the bad cell phone pics.) 

Morning faces on kids are the cutest!
On adults not so much.
Distracted by the TV.
She is definitely my kid.
Sadie and Dad.
Who's more excited?!
I love my little girl way too much!!!
Sadie and her friend Lillian.
Her new lady bug backpack.
She's pumped!
When did she get so big?!!!
I am so proud of my little girl she completed her first day of preschool like a champ! I must say she looked pretty cute today all grown up and stuff! 

Well, I'm going to go cry now.

Delicious Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Quick, easy and very tasty!


1/2 cup of shortening
1/2 cup of butter
1 tsp clear vanilla
4 cups of powdered sugar
A small amount of milk (1-2 tbsp)

Step 1:
In a mixer, cream together your butter and shortening.

Step 2:
Add vanilla.

Step 3:
Slowly add sugar while continuing to mix.

Step 5:
Add small amounts of milk depending on how think or creamy you want your icing to be.

My mother has always made the best homemade icing and I've always struggled with trying to match her's... I think this is the closest I've gotten so far.
