Happy (early) Birthday, Colton!

Colton turns one on Tuesday, December 3. But we celebrated a little early today. This way our family who was in town for Thanksgiving could be there to witness his first bite – eh, finger smash – of cake.

He’s getting so big! He’s so physical (loves to climb, crawl, walk (almost) and wrestle). We have had many “wrestle mania” nights in our living room. This boy has brought us such joy and truly is a blessing from up above. We love you, buddy! Forever and always.

The Friendship Hat: Children’s Parties

Want to see what Kelsey and I did this past weekend? We spent Saturday at a lovely children’s party. We attended Baylor’s second birthday party (Baylor is the daughter of my sorority sister, Beth). 
.
The party decor was impeccable, the favors were a hit, and the kids had such a great time. Kelsey loved running around outside, playing with all of Baylor’s toys – especially her outdoor playhouse. Beth gave all of the kids plastic cups with crazy straws, which Kelsey l-o-v-e-d. Kelsey got all of her silly’s out and then came home and took a 3 hour nap. .
.
Here are some photos from the party. Happy Birthday, Bay!
