A tad late...

Life has been somewhat crazy these last few months and the posts have been pretty non-existant but that is about to change. I may not always want to sit down and blog but I am going to do it. Why? Because I miss being able to go back and read what happened in our lives--case in point, yesterday I went back and re-read the entry about my niece's BIRTHday. She will be turning ONE tomorrow & being able to go back and kind of relive that day was pretty darn special, so special, I cried.

I cried because I couldn't believe that she is one, where did this last year go? & I cried because I have let a lot of things as of late go by without being documented. Mother's Day, Father's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, the ending of our vacation, god sons' birthdays, new babies being welcomed into the world. I was there, the kids were there but not having it down to look back at again, well thats just wrong so over the next week or so that will change. I will be playing some MAJOR catch up. There will be a lot of iPhone pictures on the blogs, all of which have been seen already. There will be some blogs without pictures. But it all get documented & at least I will feel better about preserving a few more memories…

For this post I am going to take us all the way back to May 4th, Logan's birthday party. I noticed that I had documented the party & his actual birthday but a few of my favorite pictures didn't even make the post because I was saving them for a special post…which as you know didn't come either!

For Logan's birthday party we had a dinosaur theme & Rex the dinosaur was the guest of honor, next to the birthday boy of course. Logan loved dinosaurs, at the time, but just like most things, he has moved on to something bigger and better now---his new Mickey ball Grammie got him. But since at the time he was a big dinosaur lover we got him the ROARING Rex which when you squeeze his belly he roars & bites down on your finger. He got the biggest kick out of this…



and so did we. I really don't know of a better sound in this world than his belly laugh. Pair that with his sweet, sweet facial expression and pure joy & you have one very SMITTEN mother. He certainly makes disciplining him hard these days. (That's a whole other post.)

The other big hit of the birthday party were all the balloons & thankfully I was able to go a little crazy when it came to the balloon supply now that the helium shortage is over! Once most guest left we finally let him have his balloons & for a minute there, I thought they were going to pick him up off the ground…


With life as busy as it has been this party seems like it was ages ago when in fact, it was just two short months ago. Crazy how things can just come & go so quickly…
