And Last But Not Least...

I had a poker tournament for shawn's birthday. We had a great time- it was a blast, and it didnt hurt that Shawn got first place and won the t.v.! The other prizes were a netflix membership, some board games and a Nacho Libre dvd, which my mom won! My mom was in the top 5! i couldnt believe it, and i dont think she could either. My mom has never played poker in her life. Battling shawn for first was my brother, who lost on this play....
















He folded late in the action with a 10 in his hand! Note the reaction...






Boy that looked painful Miles.













And now here's just some random pictures from the party. It was alot of fun and we are definitely making it an annual thing!

Miles doesnt look so happy being the queen, does he??

Next up....

The next birthday we have is Addison's which was a couple of weeks ago.She turned 3! I had a fairy tea party for her and invited all her girl cousins. We did fairy makeovers...















which involved lots of glitter, and tutu's and hairbows that my sister in law tiffany made for all the girls. then we sat down to eat...


and apparently in this picture addy is using her fairy wand to turn abby into something while her back is turned. The other reason i chose this picture is because it's the only decent one i have of the table and also the cake. i wanted to do a doll cake so I got a thumbelina doll for it. It turned out really cute, and the reason i'm bragging is because SHAWN DID IT!! i know, right? he did a great job. maybe cake baking and decorating will become a new hobby for him. My waistline hopes not.



Addy was so cute this year when we sang happy birthday. She totally knew all the fuss was for her and she was just soaking it up.




















And of course, Thumbelina had to be cleaned up when she was taken out of the cake.
It was a great day, and we had alot of fun with family. Addison got alot of fun stuff, and some of it was put to use a little while later....
Werent they just laying her in my arms yesterday?

Birthdays






First, i have Liam's birthday, way back from New Year's. He turned 6!! Man, where does the time go? I blinked and he was big! No more blinking. Enough of the blinking!! Anyway, we had his brother-cousin over for a few days and took them and another friend to a super fun park for cake and presents. Pretty low key but it was all i could manage after the holidays. Which is why I am going to start celebrating his half-birthday and having a party for him at the end of June. That way we can make a big deal about him, and throw a big party at the pool or whatever. And he can feel special, and I wont have another big celebration to plan for on New Year's eve. And now, with one picture, i would like to show you all why i love this boy so crazy much-

He can always make me laugh.
