Jason Turns 33!

Jason turned the big 33! Laylie and i had so much fun spoiling him throughout the whole weekend until Tuesday which was his official birthday day. He is such an amazing husband and daddy so we wanted to make him feel extra special.

We woke up Saturday and could not resist how beautiful the weather was so we headed to the beach for a beach day. We reclined on the sand, soaked up the sun, made sand-castles and played in the cold water. It was perfect!

Sunday we had a day at Seaworld. Laylie and i are able to go to Seaworld whenever we want, but Jason has not had the experience since he does not have an annual pass. We were given a day pass from a friend for Jason and could not wait to take him with us for his birthday. We loved taking him to the shows we enjoy best, showing him where we play and eat lunch each time we visit and we just enjoyed having him there with us and celebrating him. It felt like we were on vacation together and it was our favorite Seaworld trip ever since we got the annual pass. We are thinking maybe he needs to get one now :-) We had a great time and the weather was perfect.

Monday we had a family birthday party where i made his favorite crumb cake and snicker doodle cookies. Laylie and i decorated the house and made sure when he walked in the door from work we said "surprise" and sang "happy birthday". The gathering with the family was tons of fun, and all the little cousins had a blast with each other while the adults hung out.
We are so thankful for our family!

Tuesday was his birthday day. We called, emailed, texted, and facebooked "Happy Birthday" all day to let him know we are so thankful for him. We went out on a dinner date to get burgers, milkshakes and fries as he requested, and even our best friends from Colorado were able to meet us for a double-date. We sat together and chatted, laughed and brought back memories being together as close friends. We sat together for more than 2 hours with no kids and no interruptions. So nice! We had a wonderful evening and i loved spending a special night with the birthday boy.

Jason, I love you with my whole heart and i am truly so thankful to be your wife and best friend. You mean the world to me and i love living every single day by your side. Thank you for being the provider for our family and working hard every day, being the Godly man you are and showing us how to live out Christ. Thank you for loving us. Happy Birthday and we love you so incredibly much.

Easter Party

We had such an amazing day celebrating Easter with our friends. Laylie and I spent all day playing, doing crafts, hunting Easter eggs and soaking up the beautiful weather. We threw an Easter gathering in our backyard and on our greenbelt for all of Laylie’s closest friends. It was lovely to see the little ones running around playing together as the mamas enjoyed each other’s company. I am sure blessed to have such incredible women in my life and thrilled we can all share motherhood together. This Easter party was a blast and we are so thankful that we can celebrate the holiday with our magnificent friends.

The Easter Party took place at 10:30am and we started the party off with some Easter egg dying…

Next was decorating delicious Easter cookies with frosting and sprinkles…

The last craft was coloring Easter pages and making Easter cards with glitter glue, paper flowers and markers….

Then it was snack time…

The mamas chatted while the kids played…

To top off the Easter fun we had a big Easter egg hunt…

Thank you Jesus for blessing us with wonderful friends as we celebrate you being risen.

18 Wonderful Months...

Laylie is turning 18 months on the 9th and we are having so much fun with our little one. We can't believe she is already 1 1/2! We are enjoying every minute watching her grow up into the little girl she is becoming.
Here are some cute pictures of our little angel enjoying life and learning each and everyday.
