Three's a Hoot!

"My birthday was March 24th. We put presents out and a little owl nest and I love my owl. We ate pops and it was fun." - Maddie, on her 3rd birthday
She's right - that was pretty much her birthday! Presents...

Birthdays - Take 1!

Our world has been a little crazy (little might be an understatement, but crazy definitely fits). In all of the madness, I've yet to do a post from either Gavin's or Maddie's birthdays! So, today is Gavin day, and tomorrow you're in for a hoot. Gavin turned one on December 2nd, and that happened to be the day we showed the house to the person who bought it. Since it turned into a house-showing day at the last minute, the poor boy had a bit of a stressful day. But, there were presents... DSC_0404 And ice cream...
So it wasn't exactly a bad day.
The real party was still to come... DSC_0486 It was bigger than we would normally be up for, but since our move seemed imminent (and turned out to be even more so), we wanted to be able to see as many of our friends as possible. DSC_0562 The kids had a ball. Clearly. You can't go wrong with tents, tunnels, and a ball pit (thank you, Craigslist). DSC_0516 And of course there were cupcakes.
Of which the birthday boy was a fan.
Who likes cupcakes?
It was a great day. A fun party. And somehow, my baby turned one - my last no year old was gone. DSC_0297 Happy (belated) birthday, sweet Gavin. You make our world so much more fun.
