Things I love Thursday..!

This past weekend, we took our 2 year old son bowling for the first time. It took him a few times, but he eventually understood the point of the "game." He loved every minute of it and didn't want to put the ball away when it was time to go. <3<3

There's nothing I love more than the simple joy that comes from watching my son eat a cupcake. There's nothing dainty or clean about the way he eats a cupcake. It covers his face, hands, sometimes his hair, and usually his clothes. I don't care how messy he gets as long as I get to see him smile and say "mmm" after every bite he takes!

A few things...

A) Happy 2nd Birthday Dylan!!!! Mommy and Daddy love you very much. At the risk of being sappy and weepy, I'm just going to say that I love you very much and you are the best thing that's ever happened to us. Hope this day is as great for you as I think it will be!!

We're off to celebrate with family and friends at Portillo's in just a little while. Have to make a pit stop and pick up balloons and we are good to go. :-) Kinda sad some friends have canceled but it's understandable that things come up. Also picked up the cake earlier! I must say she did an amazing job and she was cheap! If it tastes as good as it looks, I'll use her again. Although like Ryan said, nothing will ever top the epic treasure chest cake of '09, LOL.

B) I'd never say this on my Facebook because many friends are photographers, but I hate selective coloring. That's where everything in a picture is B&W but then one little spot on it has color. Just looks so silly and most of the time, it isn't done right. :-( Unfortunately, most of my photographer friends think it looks adorable. It can be done right, but usually it isn't.

Hope everyone is okay and having a great weekend! Can't wait for spring to get here and bring warm temperatures and sunny skies. :)

Good news...

YAY!!! Ailene had her baby yesterday!! 6 lbs, 13 oz and 19.5 inches long! She said delivery was very easy and baby is very handsome. I'm hoping to go visit them today around 2, but I'm waiting on a reply from Vern to see if they'd babysit Dylan while I go.

Just had to say congratulations to a very good friend even though she'll never read this!! Congratulations Ailene, Ken, and Jimmy (the big brother)!!!

On a side note-4 days til D's 2nd birthday! I'm so teary eyed these days that I must be driving everyone nuts. :-)

Even more exciting news-I enrolled back in school and start today!! I'm super excited to get back in the swing of things. :-)

5 days..

5 days until D is 2!! I can't believe how quickly 2 years can go by. Before I know it, he'll be 5 and then 10 and then he'll be off to college. :-( I don't even want to imagine that day. It's coming quicker than I think though!

Can't wait for his party. Maybe I'm just looking forward to eating some Portillo's and cake! I went all out and made most everything for his party this time around (invites, favor bags, cake topper, etc). I also plan on making Mickey Mouse shaped cookies for everyone to take home. Hope the kiddos that come like the stuff I put in the favor bags. If they don't.. no invite for them next year. ;-)

I'll have to update after Saturday and post some pics from his party.

And now a little pic to leave out on..

A pic of Dylan and his little best friend Jimmy.. Jimmy is going to become a big brother today so I'm sending out good thoughts and prayers for a safe and speedy delivery for my good friend Ailene. :)
