Baby Colton turns ONE

Yes, it's unusual for me to have a little brother that's 35 years younger than me. That's right---35 years. But, omg, he's sooooo cute! Happy birthday to my "littlest" brother, Colton!

Gage loves him. Thinks he's the cutest baby boy of all time.

It was a lot of fun.
The party itself was at Gammy's assisted living. Different? Yes. But----it's so much easier on Gammy. If you can't get your grandmother to the party, take the party to her!

Thanksgiving, 2014

This year for Thanksgiving, we spent the day with my father in law's family. This was the first time I met any of that side of the family. The kids LOVED playing basketball indoors, so that was a big plus.

My father in law spent the night at our house the night before Thanksgiving. Gage was excited and ready to go in the morning. He was thrilled to ride down there with GrandDaddy in his Stingray. Just the two of them....I know it was special for Gage. 

Pics from the day:
Look who was dressed, ready, hair done, and smiling before the trip! Sweet boy.... Eliette was still in her jammies at that point.

Pics from the day....

 It was a pretty good sized group, and I failed to get pictures of everybody.

I got so many sweet compliments about this little guy's behavior from before Damon, Eliette, and I arrived to the event. How wonderful that is as a parent. He was cheerful and helpful. Yay!

Then I asked him to snap a picture of me and Daddy.
Looked later, and this is what we got:
(Gah. He could have at least made me look skinny!)

Things that suck: breezing by the kitchen table, reaching for a package of needles to put away since you're passing right by the place they go----only to have one of the needles shoot up under your finger nail.

Oh.My.Freeeeaking.Gooooodness, that hurt.


Party Girl...

She's a party girl, in a party world!
These pics were taken this past Fall at an area park where she attended the birthday of a little friend who has since moved away.

Why are there only pics of my child at this event? Because she was ALL OVER THE PLACE and it was all I could do to just keep up with her! There really were other children there, and there was really a party. It's just hard to tell from these photos.
