Happy Birthday Paisley Love!

 2 months old
 7 months old
 1 year old
 18 months old
2 years old!!

I can't believe that my baby is 2 years old today!  Time has gone by so fast!  I sure do enjoy this little munchkin in my life.  She is so full of energy and life.  She has no fear.  She definitely keeps me on my toes. 
We started out the day with a special breakfast made by Lee.  Then her Granddad Bill and Grandma Loretta stopped by and brought her a present and visited with her.  Afterwards we went to lunch at McDonalds (a rare treat for her).  We then went and played at Jumpin Jacks for the first time.  We had so much fun there!  Paisley loved it!  She especially loved the huge slides and insisted on going down them all by herself.  After playing we went to DQ and got an ice cream cone.  On the way home she fell asleep.  We got her into the house and she slept for 2 hours.  We definitely wore her out.  After dinner we ate popcorn and watched a movie, and had a visit from Papa Kevin and Grandma Carolyn. 
I am pretty sure she enjoyed her special day!  She was smiling and having fun throughout the day.
Here are some pics from Jumpin Jacks today.  She is hardly looking at the camera because I couldn't get her to hold still long enough to take a pic!  :)

Birthdays, birthdays, and more birthdays!

My husband Lee turned the big 30 on the 30th of July.  It was a pretty big deal I thought.  A milestone, plus his golden birthday.  I wanted to plan something amazing for him.  But, he wanted to keep it low key. The day before his birthday we took him to Blissful Yogurt and ate some delicious Fro-Yo.  He then went to the store while Paisley was napping and came home with a mountain bike!  Although, I am a little irritated on this one, only for the fact that I had a really nice mountain bike, and last summer he told me to get rid of it, because I never use it and it was taking up space.  Now he has one, and I don't.  But my birthday is coming up at the end of the month, so maybe I will get one!  Hint, hint, Lee.  :) Anyway, on the morning of his birthday he went fishing with my dad and my brother-in-law.  While he was gone, the girls and I went to work on making him a few gifts.  I had the girls (mostly Tyra) tell me 30 things they love about their dad.  Then we put the pieces of paper in a jar and tied some ribbon around it. 
When he got home we just hung out around the house.  I made a dinner for him.  His request: ribs, roasties, and veggies.  He didn't want a cake since I was making him one for the next day. 
So, that was his big golden birthday.  Nothing crazy big, but he enjoyed it.
The next day was Sunday.  We celebrated Lee's birthday, my niece McKelle's birthday (who's is the same day as Lee's), and Paisley's birthday.  Paisley and McKelle are only ten days apart, which makes celebrating together lots of fun!  We got together with my family, and my sister's in-laws and celebrated all three of these birthdays.  We let Paisley open her presents that day, so it was like Christmas in July.  Wrapping paper was EVERYWHERE!    Shanny (my sister) and I decided to do Mickey and Minnie for the girls since they both love Mickey and Minnie Mouse.  Shanny's friend made the cakes and cupcakes for us.  They turned out so cute! I made a cake for Lee, so we had 3 cakes, and 24 cupcakes!  YUM!   I love celebrating birthdays!  I can't believe that my baby is almost 2!  Time flies by so much!   It seems just yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital. 
Now, get ready for lots of pics!  Enjoy!
