Allen's 6th Birthday

We celebrated Allen's 6th birthday last weekend. He had his first all friends birthday. He had about 6 or so friends come and they just had a crazy blast of a time. He wanted a baseball theme (as you could have guessed). A couple of days before the party I started feeling a little funny and the day before the party it got much worse and so I called the doctor and the soonest he could get me in was the morning of Allen's party. So I fought through the pain as best I could to get everything ready the night before and spent most the the morning of the party in the doctors office. It turned out to be nothing major but I did need to take some meds for it. Once I got back though, I had to try to finish Allen's cake in a real hurry and put on a smiling face and pretend to be feeling great for all the kids to come. So, because of all that, poor Allen ended up with one of the worst cakes I have ever done and almost no pictures. So sorry Allen, I will have to make it up to him next year. But despite it all the kids all seemed to have a great time.

So these are Allen's Birthday invitations. He insisted that the runner be able to run from 3rd to home. So that made them a little time consuming to make but there they are. He also got an awesome baseball pinata. So after all the kids played a couple innings of T-ball they got to take some of there new batting skills out on this big baseball. Since I wasn't feeling very well Allen's cake was a little lame this year but here it is. I love how happy he was that I still made him one and had nothing but good things to say about it. So here is the beginning of the present opening. He loved all that he was given. Thanks everyone. And I'm sorry but that is all the pictures that I took at his party. We were just having too much fun to take pictures.

Random Evans

We have had some visitors lately. It has been a little bit of a cousinpolooza. Evan had his second cousins visit. They were born around the same time as him and it's cute to see them all together. Also that same weekend Grandma and Grandpa Meagher brought the boys' cousins Max and Meeghen. Meeghen just loved being around Evan. Everything was so busy that I didn't take any other pictures. We all had a great time. At the end of this hodge podge post we have Evan eating some of his first solid foods. Yumm. Well, I guess this is a post all about Evan. Well, enjoy.

Ava (My niece Amber's baby), Evan (My littlest man), and Jayden ( My niece Cheryse's baby). Evan was really excited by all the picture taking. However the girls were a little less enthusiastic.
And there they are again. Evan has this thing lately where he always has to have his tongue hanging out.
Evan and his cousin Meeghen. She was so excited to get to hold him and then everyone wanted too. He had to be saved shortly after this picture from the herd of children wanting to play with him.
Here comes the airplane. YUMM!
He was a little put off by me taking pictures while he ate. But I don't think you can tell.
