Party 2

Jenna's birthday was a week ago and I am still posting pictures. I hate going through photos and editing and resizing and all that. Takes so much time! I'm always happy when it's done!

So here's party two. Just a simple family get-together at my Sister-in-law, Tera, and her husband, Fred's place. Grandparents, Aunt and Uncle and us. Swimming, homemade pizza and lemon cake with white frosting and chocolate ice cream- all Jenna's requests. It was a very hot day so swimming was definitely a very nice activity for the afternoon. Too bad we didn't have any swim diapers for Alex. He sat outside for a bit and was turning red fast so I had to bring him back in. He would have loved to swim, he's a water baby.

Jenna got two movies and a video game from us and an Xbox Live card from Aunt Tera and Uncle Fred. She was so happy to get the XBox Live card! She has been wanting one so badly so that she can play games online. Grandma and Grandpa took her shopping at Old Navy for some new clothes that she desperately needed. It was a good birthday!

Party 1

We had two parties this year. I wanted to make sure to do something special on the actual birthday and then we had our family get together on Saturday. Everything was nice. Relaxed. Not stressful. loved it. I am just so much happier when I can plan a simple, easy-going party. No worries.

Our little family dinner consisted of burgers, pasta salad and chips. Then we had brownies and ice cream for dessert and Jenna got to open one of her presents from us and her gift from Nana and Papa. She loved everything she got and was very grateful. That made me happy. :) Alex was so cute just staring at the decorations.

Then she went to her best friends, Sydney and Jordan's, house for a sleepover that turned into a two night sleepover complete with a trip to the pool. They gave her a watercolor set with beautiful colors and a How to Draw Manga book. They are always so sweet and thoughtful to consider her artistic talent when they buy her gifts. I sure do miss having them as neighbors.

Anyway, we gave her a unicorn Webkinz and she got money and a necklace from Nana and Papa. And here are the pictures I took that day. I'll get the one's from Saturday up soon.

9 years ago

My heart melted as I heard the doctor announce that the baby I had carried for 9 months, my first baby, was a girl.










And my life was forever changed. :) Happy Birthday Jenna!

I'm always editing photos of Alex just a tiny bit to enhance his blue eyes. However, I wanted to leave this one untouched to show you that his eyes really are blue! Aren't genetics strange? Who would've ever thought Eric and I would have a blue eyed child? Click the photo to see the larger image :)
