Carter's 3rd Birthday!

This was the first birthday that Carter has really gotten into. For days before all of us where telling Carter is was going to be his birthday and he would go around the house singing Happy Birthday to me. He also helped me design his cake. He could hardly wait for me to get it all made. He helped with his invitations as well. (I don't have a picture of the invitations though sorry) They were monkey faces and when you pulled his tongue down the information was on it. We had a lot of fun putting them together. When it was party time Carter welcomed every person at the door with a big hug and loved that everyone was there for him. He couldn't tell me but I could tell he loved his special day and having almost everyone he loves there with him.

Carter was so interested in his birthday cake he could hardly wait for everyone to get there. Posing with his lion and assorted animals cake. Yep, here it is again in all its wild glory. Here are some of the fun crowd that came to the party. Carter was opening a present and Jamie thought this one was a real nail biter. Present from Uncle Bryan. Kevin's family's presents are always among some of the favorites. Opening the Johnson family's present. Carter and Evan really like this one. He got so many awesome gifts this year it was hard for him to choose which one to play with first. Thanks everyone who came and celebrated with us.

I really loved the Happy Birthday song this year because Carter was singing along with us. I just love it when he is using his awesome speech.

St. Patricks Day

On St. Patrick;s Day we had a lot of fun. It all started with breakfast, Daddy made some green eggs and ham and we read the book while we ate it. (Sorry we ate it all up before we thought to get a picture) Then the whole family got dressed up in our greens and drew shamrocks on our hands. Then all of us went off to do our things for the day and then had a special night of fun St. Patrick's day games and things. It was a ton of fun.

We dressed the boys in green of course and they all just looked so cute. Don't you think? All of us in the family had shamrocks drawn on our hand. I took a ton of pictures and couldn't get Evan to smile in any of them. His face just got more and more concerned. These where the best ones.

My boys

I always seem to end up with a bunch or cute random pictures of my boys. So this time I thought I would share some of them with all of you. We have so much fun at our house on a daily basis. Having a house full of rambunctious boys always makes for some crazy moments.

Allen got a Leapster for his birthday and all the boys seemed to love it. Even Daddy and Evan like to play it. I thought it was just too cute and had to get a picture. The flash is really bright on this one but I love Carter's smile. He is always making all of us laugh and smile with the super cute things he says and just like my side of the family, is always laughing at his own jokes. Here is my cute little bumkin Evan. I put him in here for just a minute while I was putting his clothes away and noticed how cute he was being. His cousin Meeghen gave him this little monkey blanket and he is always wrestling and playing with it. It's just so cute and funny. And there is the tongue that is always out lately. Evan had a stuffy nose for a week or so and it made him sound like he was panting. And as always he has his tongue out too. The boys thought it was really funny that he looked and sounded like a puppy and so they all were crawling around like dogs for the whole week.
