It’s Alexander’s Birthday, Dude!

This past Saturday, we headed to the Children’s Museum of the Ohio Valley to help celebrate Louis’ bestie turning another year older.  Alexander has made an appearance on this blog a few times already and we are terribly sad to report that we won’t be seeing much...

‘Rawr’ Means Happy Birthday in Dinosaur

Saturday was Louis’ 3rd birthday party – and it was pretty fantastic, if I may say so myself.  I think Louis and Bennett would probably agree as well.  The weather was great, company was amazing, food was delicious and everything went off without a...

Davey Turns 9!

Children keep growing up all around us.  It’s a seriously hard pill to swallow now-a-days.  I constantly hold people at a specific age in my memory and then get smacked in the face when I realize that they aren’t going to stay little forever.  For...

Happy Birthday, Maddie!

This blog is about to be taken over by a ridiculously cute redhead.  And it’s not me this time…..haha.  Please humor me by pretending for a moment that I’d fit into that description. We were in Morgantown on Saturday afternoon, to celebrate sweet little...

Embarrassing: I Am “That” Mom

Good lord.  I have been going through the last 2-1/2 years thinking that I had it “under control” in the Mom department.  Well, as much as one can be under control as a parent.  Holy crap do I have it wrong.  I thought I was all cool and calm and...

Happy Birthday, Billy Bob!

In honor of my big bro’s 30th (holy cow, are you really that old??) birthday, I thought I would fill our blog up with photos of Billy in his younger years.  What’s more fun than that?? You could say that big blue eyes and good looks run in the family....

Happy Birthday, Annie House!

Annie had her first official “friend” birthday party, in celebration of her 6th birthday.  How is it possible that little Annie Bananny is six already?  SIX?  Ridiculous. We practiced saying ‘happy birthday’ in the car with Louis.  He almost had it...

Lou turns 2!

Can you believe that my little guy has turned another year older?  It’s amazing to me how quickly he’s changed in those two years as well…his chubby face and cheeks are going away and he’s becoming a lean, mean, talking-all-the-time, dancing machine. We...

Davey’s Birthday Party: Part I

[I went to share all of these photos and then realized I don’t have any edited of the birthday boy, his friends and the activities they participated in.  Clearly, I’ve got Louis on the brain more than I thought I did.] Davey turned a whopping EIGHT years old this...

{Out of this World} Birthday Party!

I thought I would go ahead and share all of the fun decorations I made for my Louis’ 1st birthday party.  It’s silly to think this, but boys really get the shaft when it comes to fun themes and decorations for parties.  Throw some pink and sparkles into the...

Cake eating escapades…

I thought I’d share a couple of photos from last night’s birthday cake adventures.  We have PLENTY more but I don’t have time to go through them.  Louis’ big party is today and I need to get ready for it! 🙂

Photo Friday {Birthday Edition}

To mark the special occasion of Louis’ first birthday, I’m cheating a bit.  Instead of putting up a photo from the past week, I decided it would be best to share a photo(s) from the very first day our family was whole.  The first moment, really. Louis Brock...
