I just love this time of year. We are back in the swing of things. The weather is starting to become cooler. Our busy birthday season is upon us. Fall is definitely in the air!!
We have been having a great time lately, I just haven't sat down to write about all of our fun.
Here's a short recap: we celebrated Damian's birthday on September 14th and Max's party was on the 15th(a few weeks later than his actual bday due to his new cousin being born the day after his birthday and the craziness that is the beginning of the school year!). His two requests this year were for a pinata and water slide. He loved both of them! We were blessed to have our family and friends join us in celebrating our five year old. I made a baseball cake and his big sister decorated his football cupcakes for him. He was sweet to tell her they looked beautiful!
Here are just a couple of pics from his big day:
We've also been enjoying our new niece/cousin. She is absolutely precious!
The weekend of Max's party our friends Jon, Cathy, and Cael came to stay with us for the whole weekend! We had so much fun hanging out, playing, watching our gator football, and just spending time together! We also celebrated my friend Jenn's little guy Ethan's first birthday. I have some cute pics from his Elmo party that I need to share. That was a busy weekend for sure. We joked we needed to go back to school/work to get a break! I felt like a did a lot of cleaning that weekend!! :)
This past weekend Damian and I had a date night...wahoo!! We went to dinner at a local Japanese steak house and then went shopping for a new bed. Life is exciting around here! I was also able to get a few new pieces of clothing too! The kids spent the night at Gram and Papaw's with a few of their cousins and had an absolute blast! We picked them up Saturday and headed out to do some more shopping. We were pretty much out and about all day so, we had a fun family movie night at home watching The Lorax. Sunday the kids weren't feeling too well, that junky virus going around-runny nose, cough, & yuckiness, so we laid low and just went to church and came home to grill out. We were bummed to miss Grandpop and our nephewAaron's birthday celebration at Papa Joe's...one of our favorites.
This week we signed Emma up for girl scouts and we're going to sign her up for dance classes too. We're looking forward to a family filled weekend celebrating my sister and sister in-law's birthday.
