...a December Birthday

We celebrated Morgan's 2nd birthday last weekend in Carrollton. Grayson helped decorate with some of the "40" balloons Jamie ordered. I have to admit, they were very festive!
The party theme was centered around the children's movie "UP". In the movie the character's house is lifted up and carried away by hundreds of balloons. Since Morgan already had a huge cardboard house (an earlier birthday present), the only thing needed were lots of balloons!!!
Doesn't Grayson make a cute balloon man?
There were balloons everywhere!
When Morgan woke up from his nap he was surprised to see all of the balloons in the house. He couldn't wait for the party to begin, balloons are just so much fun!
We tied party treats to the balloons so they wouldn't float up and away!
The kids made cute door signs to take home and hang on their bedroom doors.
The cake was so fun. Daddy Joel put the foam house together for the top of the cake (isn't he talented!) and we tied balloons to the chimney. It fit the party theme perfectly.

When we sang "Happy Birthday" to Morgan he looked so cute looking around the room at everyone. He wasn't quite sure what was going on, I don't think.
He sure is eyeing that cake, though! He's been to enough birthday parties to know that he does like icing!
He's getting pretty excited now, I think he knows what is coming next.
A big grin, two candles, and one big wish...
...waiting for mommy to cut the cake.
Finally, a piece of birthday cake, or rather, a big glob of icing!
Happy Birthday, Morgan. We love you!

someone might get hurt")
buddies are no longer "climbing"

Outside Fun...

I always enjoy the kids visits over the holidays since it gives us several extended days to be together. This year was extra enjoyable for me since the hubby and I have been "kid- less" in the house since August. G and M had fun in the back yard while enjoying some fresh air. They are absolutely the sweetest little boys!!!
And now, M can join big brother on the swings!
He's holding on tight so Nienie can let go of him long enough to take pics.
G is "King of the Swing Set" thanks to the cool stick he found nearby.
I just love these boys to pieces!!!
Aren't those the sweetest faces? I think so!!!

Fall Break Fun....

Kelsey and I made a much needed trip to see the grand kids over fall break. We had to leave Caleb behind in Norman to begin his new job, yeah for Caleb! But, we sure missed him tagging along with us. The boys looked liked they had grown soooo much since we had last seen them!
Just look at those sweet faces!!! Jamie had been saving gallon milk cartons for a Halloween decoration, so soon after we got there--out came the markers. Jamie, Kelsey, and Grayson showed off their drawing talents!
We laughed so hard watching Grayson draw a face on the carton, he was having a blast!
The idea is to draw Halloween faces, cut a small opening in the back to insert tiny stringed lights inside and then put them outside in the yard or on the porch.
Grayson is really concentrating, trying not to giggle.
I was very impressed with Kelsey's faces, she really got creative.
And, she did a GREAT job!
I forgot to get a picture of them on the front porch all lit up! I'll have to beg one from Jamie. I'll post pics of our cookie house soon. Happy Halloween, everyone!
