Nolan's 3rd Birthday

Well this blogging thing has taken a back seat.  Life has gotten crazy but I'm going to try to post a new blog at least once a month, mostly for me and my kids for the future.  I know they will appreciate being able to look back at these posts.

So today is Nolan's 3rd Birthday.  I had surgery on Friday so I knew I needed to be prepared.  I think he had a really good birthday.  We had French Toast for breakfast, he opened his presents, and we had dinner brought in and then we sang Happy Birthday while he had a donut cake.  He LOVES donuts.
Check out the pictures from the day.

Nolan's First Birthday Party!

Oh boy did we have some fun at Nolan's first birthday party.  Having a July baby makes it hard to have a birthday party because our home is too small, but it's almost too hot to have it outside.  So I decided to do a Beach Ball Birthday Bash.  I didn't go crazy but I had a lot of fun doing some fun stuff for his birthday. 

First I set up a little backdrop in my house to take the pictures for his invite.  It turned out so cute and so did the pics.


We did the party at our Stake Center's Pavilion.  It's nice to have the shade and there is grass, a place to attach a hose, and hooks already there for decorations.  I think it's destined to be windy any day I try and throw a party in Vegas but it wasn't as bad as the wind we had during Shaun's graduation party.

We brought our little kiddie pools and set them up for the little ones under the canopy.

 Pizza, frog-eye salad, italian pasta salad, and watermelon was our boy's birthday dinner.

Present time! 
 He got lots of fun toys and some cute PJ's.

He was pretty wiped out by the end of the day!  So were we!  But we had a blast.
