Happy Birthday Jackson!

My little man turned 2 yesterday and we had a huge Elmo party today for him. It was originally supposed to be in our backyard with our nice big patio and yard but it has been raining since Tuesday and our backyard now resembles Lake Michigan. So we moved the party to the fellowship hall at our church! It was a really great substitute. Jackson was very excited about borrowing his friend Oliver's bounce house for his party so we needed a big space. Here are some pictures of our fun day!

These are the Elmo cupcakes that my friend Ashley helped us make!

The kids had PBJ star sandwiches and fruit for lunch.

Some ballpit fun.

A wiggly family picture!

blowing out the candles....he was more interested in the fire.
Pinata Time!

This is his present from Mommy and Daddy....it will be in the backyard when the lake subsides.

I can not believe my baby is already 2! He is the best kid a mommy could ask for. He is constantly into everything, always curious and wondering how things work. He keeps me on my toes and definitely wears me out by the end of the day but I wouldn't trade it for the world. He is so sweet and cuddly and so fun to be with. He is always the center of attention and everyone who knows him is in love with his cuteness. He definitely needs a great deal of discipline and training but what kid doesn't? He is learning so much and really is a good kid....(you know, when he isn't eating Glade Plugins at school)...... I love watching him grow up into a little boy and really love all the neat things he is starting to enjoy. I can't wait to see what a wonderful big brother he will be.

Jackson we love you so much.....you are a joy to us!
