Birthday Boy

Good morning birthday boy, October 6, 2011

My precious baby Xander was fortunate to have two parties this year. We (Xander, Jack and I) flew to AZ the afternoon of his birthday so we of course had to celebrate with Tyler before we left.

Cake... his favorite part.

And here is our Boo opening his gift (wrapped in newspaper). How classy are we?

That weekend we had a birthday bash with lots of family honoring Colten and Xander! My brother and sister in law have a boy just four days older than Xander. So we decided it would be fun to celebrate their 1st birthdays together!

Cake eating contest. Which baby got the messiest?

It was a blast! Thanks, Jenni for hosting and for the delicious food!!

For winter break we were fortunate enough to visit home in Arizona! We had so much fun with our family and friends and the fresh citrus we consumed was definitely a plus! Of course Jack loved seeing his cousins and R.J., whom he calls, "my doggy." He had a blast having kids around to play with all the time! Being cooped up in a one bedroom apartment is a bit depriving and i definitely need to be better about getting out and playing with friends. We are going sledding today though, so that will be fun! Anyway, Tyler, the kids and I all drove to AZ together, kind of a long trip but, it was worth it! We drove straight through, we thought it would be cool to surprise everyone by showing up a day early, Everyone was surprised, so we were totally as cool as i thought! :) Tyler stayed for about a month then drove himself back home to Arkansas to start his spring semester. The rest of us stayed a couple weeks longer and flew home, jack still talks about the time when flew on the airplane really really high in the sky! I took lots of pictures of our trip so I will update a few specifics later with pics attached. We made it home safe and sound and its good to be back in the swing of things.

P.s. I love my little boys!!

I have had a few posts saved in my drafts for a while now. I just havent gotten around to uploading the pictures so I end up never posting them. I did do one today though! YAY! They are coming... slowly but surely!
