Asa's 2nd Birthday!

We had a blast at Asa's 2nd Birthday! I decided to go all out just because I figured as more kids came along I probably wouldn't have the time and energy to do it again. We decided on a "cars" theme...but not the movie, just a 2 year old version, cozy-coupe style! Here are the pictures from his party:

We made a track outside with rolls of black plastic and duct tape.  I borrowed the cones and most of the cozy coupe cars.

My friend, Shannon, help me make his birthday shirt! It turned out so cute!

We decided to use the "stoplight" as his color theme for most everything- including the food!
My friend, Jordan, makes these yummy sugar cookies! She did a great job!
I used the gasoline can for our drink dispenser (yes, it was brand-new and clean.), and I splurged and ordered these traffic cone sippy cups from
I made Driver's Licenses for all the kids that came!
The stoplights were made from Pamper's diaper boxes that I just spray painted black.

Sweet baby Maren, who is almost 3 weeks old!



Reagan (her brother Westin was there, but I never got a good picture!)

The birthday boy!

Such a fun day!  I wish I had more pics of all of us, but Asa accidentally scratched my cornea two nights before the party, so I had no eye makeup on and was very sensitive to the sun.  Things can't always be perfect! :)

Thank you to all of Asa's friends/family (and mine) who made him feel so special that day and for loving him as much as we do!

Wrapping up our Summer!

I have so much to update on, but tonight is not the night. I'm about to head to bed! We have been so busy this last month, and as we approach Asa's 2nd birhtday here in just a few weeks, I'll be updating a lot more.  I will leave you with these pictures for now.  All of which are from this summer, but I just haven't uploaded them.  We have had our family here a lot this summer and fall, and here were a few from our time together.

My awesome brother in law and my sweet niece Lilly

Oh how I adore this beautiful little girl!

My nephews and Asa (best pic I could get)

Loved having my sister in law come with my nephews!

We just walked around the corner and happen to catch Lilly and Asa in this pose.  We have NO idea what they were doing, but isn't the sweetest picture?!?  Maybe he's praying for her...

Happy Monday!
