Daddy's 29th Birthday!!

Birthdays were always a big deal for us while growing up. I remember how special my parents made me feel each birthday, and that is definitely one of those things I want to pass down to the boys, SOOOO with that being said, last week was Chris's birthday - and we tried to celebrate him in STYLE :-) Let's just say both Jake and Cole were bouncing off the walls on Daddy's birthday - and they pretty much got to pick everything out. We went to Publix first thing that morning ... and they got to pick out the plates, napkins, balloons, etc. (and just as a side note, everyone in Publix - all 12 people - knew that it was THEIR Daddy's birthday that day) :-) They picked out Woody and Buzz plates (Toy Story), Lightning McQueen napkins (Cars), and then Jake picked out a Yogi Bear balloon and Cole picked out a Mickey Mouse balloon .... love the personal touch of that :-)
Here is Jake helping me bake Daddy's cake while Cole napped. Jake did a fantastic job!!
Cole stealing some icing off the cake when he thought I wasn't looking (or he probably knew I was and just didn't care) :-)
We wrapped all of Daddy's gifts (shirts and books) individually and set up a scavenger hunt....
We decorated our own paper table cloth (Macaroni Grill style) .....




Showing Daddy his balloons when he got home from work ....

WE LOVE US SOME DADDY! We are all so lucky to have him in our lives!!!
