Yesterday was Caleb's first birthday! We gave him his birthday present in the morning. It was a ride on Speedy the Turbo Turtle. It is on casters so he can drive it wherever he wants, well when his legs get a little longer. For now he just pushes it or gets pushed on it.Caleb was so excited he couldn't wait for JD to get it out of the box.
Later that night we had the traditional birthday party with our extended family. We just let Caleb open the presents as family showed up. It was fun that way because he could play with it for a minute or two and then of course Madelyn and Hiett would come and steal it but he was a good sport about it.
Then came time for the cake. While we sang to him he was snickering a little and then he got the cake and had a little taste and then just dove in. He loved it.
Madelyn and Hiett did too. We could not keep them away from the cake they just kept running up and stealing little tastes.
We had a great time visiting with our family. It is so much fun to get together. Thanks to all for your unconditional love and support. We really appreciate all of you and what you do for our family!
I have been so excited to get these boots for the kids since I saw them in the landsend catalog. I knew they just had to have them. Good thing we got a good deal on them. I ordered them almost 2 weeks ago and they finally came today. They are so cute and they love them. Hiett calls them his "Swiper the Fox" boots (from Dora). Now all we need is a little bit of snow.
Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween. We sure had alot of fun and got way too much candy. But isn't that the way it goes with that holiday. Auntie Em was our lifesaver this year, JD had to work and so Em came and helped me out. I don't think I would have survived without her. Thanks Em :) Madelyn was so excited to wear her costume so for about a week before everyday she would have to put it on. I let Hiett try his on the morning of and it was a fight to get it off.
Madelyn was a cute bumble bee
Hiett was Spider-man. I painted his mask on with black face paint. Thanks Bowbie :)
When he looked in the mirror and saw it he sighed and said "It's perfect"
Caleb was a monkey. Which anyone who knows Caleb would know that a monkey is a very fitting costume for him.
We had so much fun running up to the doors and saying trick or treat! The hardest thing was getting back in the Van after we were done at each house. We were so happy that we had no tears from scary costumes this year:). All in all we had a great Halloween!
