 What a year! You are growing and learning and we are so very proud of you! What a great year we've had.

 We love you so much E.

Alex's Bubble Guppy birthday details...

I know this was a few weeks ago but I wanted to get it down before I forgot!

We had Alex's birthday party at my mom and dad's house on his actual birthday the 11th. We had a school field trip that morning, so we just decided to make a day of it and celebrate Alex turning 2!

A huge thank you to my parents and sister for helping get things ready for the party! 
We had a blast with family and friends!!

 Alex's shirt was from PersonalizedDesigns1 from Etsy. Love this shirt and super cute!

 Birthday invitations were from SewSweet808

 These were 1 of Alex's gifts from Mike and I. I love the wooden pegs and the boys love playing with them. These are from KrissiesKrafts on Etsy.

 Some of the printables,  food labels, and games were from Funtastic Parties on Etsy and also Nick Jr.
The look alike Alex sticker was from Aloquin. Love it :)

The Ocean water is just blue gatorade :)

Alex's cake was from a high school friend...Catherine's Cakery. Catherine did amazing on the cake and was so delicious. I told her what theme we were doing and sent her a couple of pictures of ideas and she ran with it. LOVE it!! Also, love that she made it egg free for my boys. :)

Inside the sand pail for our friends was a bookmark, mask, bubbles, a bag of goldfish, a bubble guppy coloring book and a magnetic fishing game. :)

Nick Jr. has a ton of games, printables, and ideas for almost anything :)

Love this 2 year old! :)

Wordless Wednesday.

Tuesday, May 21, 2013


I seriously get teary-eyed every single time I think about the people in Oklahoma.
The teachers protecting their students...
The parents wondering about their kids and hoping they are okay...
The students, scared and screaming and trapped...
The rescue workers digging through the metal, hoping and praying to find survivors...
The elderly...
The hospital workers...
The volunteers...

I've been praying. It's all I can do...
Today is my 34th birthday and I can't imagine what they are going through.
My birthday wish is to pray. For you to pray. Pray for these families. For the cities affected by this deadly tornado...

Happy 2nd Birthday, Alex!!

It is hard to believe that this happy little guy is 2!

Dear Alex,
 We are all so in love with you! You and Evan are two peas in a pod and your daddy and I love watching the two of you grow up. You can almost finally say his name! You love to be outside and when it is time to come in you throw the biggest fit. :)  I can't believe you will be starting preschool on Monday. You will have a ton of fun and you get to go with Evan for a few more weeks until school is out for summer. Eating is one of your favorites and you are obsessed with milk!
Alex, you are such a joy and we love you very much!!!! Here's to another great year...
Mommy, Daddy, Evan and Jack

Here is his birth story
