starting first, of course, with the 2012 double birthday celebration! thursday was me & jack's birthday. it was a pretty low key day -- presents, a short trip to green lake, playing with new toys outside, brinner for dinner and donuts for dessert. does anyone else feel disappointed if they don't do something earth-shattering on their birthday? b thinks i'm crazy for considering thursday to be a slow birthday. no matter, because around here we celebrate birthday WEEK so there's a party every day :)
this was a very sporty birthday for jack. between us & the grandparents, he got a t-ball set, a mini basketball hoop, some velcro catching mitts and a remote-controlled car. plus some books and a mini broom to help mom sweep -- his favorite activity. :)
i can't believe this kid is 2! below is what he looks like when you tell him to say cheese. haha. don't mind the awful crewcut...i took him for a buzz this week and it turned out a little too short for my liking.
the weather has been super nice this week so after naptime we went outside to play. he loves driving his race car around already! side note: why does he look like he's 12 in these pictures?
b surprised me with a really cool map i've been wanting forever, plus a fancy date night for this weekend -- i'll share more details after we go. plus he brought home my favorite top pot doughnuts so basically he rocked the birthday celebration this year. also, it was SO so fun to get facebook messages, texts and calls throughout the day. i have the best friends and family!
