Cant believe my son turned 3 this year!! His birthday was in October and it was a beautiful but chilly day and we took him to the park for his party. I kept it simple this year. I invited his friends to a drop in style party. Nothing more than cupcakes and few balloons. The kids could play their hearts out. I didn't even stop them for the happy birthday song! It was wonderful! Stressful for sure. The parents were able to talk and play with their children and not be forced into watching each gift open and blah blah. If a child came with a gift, I would have Miles come over to greet them and open it right then so he would know which gift came from which person. Until he is older and wants to do something else this is the way to go!
It was so laid back I forgot to take pictures too! I felt bad for that, really bad. I was able to get one picture of his friend Dylan. He is such a sweet heart!
After his park party with his friends, we had a little dinner and cake with just family at Nannys house. This again was so relaxing and fun. My Nanny offered to cook spaghetti and we open a few gifts and enjoyed cake!
Miles wanted a monster truck cake. That was all he talked about. So he was so excited to see a monster truck on his cake.

Happy Birthday my sweet 3 year old!!!

Cakes Cakes Cakes! Been so busy ! And so much fun! Here was a Barbie cake. And may I add my 1st barbie cake. I chose to make 3 6 inch cakes and stack them and then shape them. I had heard bad things about the "Barbie" cake pan. I thought this worked out great! It ends up being pretty tall if you want it to come up to her waist. I guess some cakes I had seen, maybe they took her legs off. It make the barbie look weird to me.
So here we are at a new year. Wow time goes so fast the older you get. Seems like I just turned 25 and here I am 35. Makes  you really think about how fast life goes by.
This year has brought many good things. I thank the Lord for that. He sent my husband the job he wanted and needed. He taken care of us and brought us through many hard days. He has kept us healthy and safe. I hope the new year brings many more new and exciting things for us.

My goals this year. I try not to make a "resolution" list. Although January 1st is a good time for a fresh clean slate. So I will just consentrate on what I already do and make it even better.

1. Get closer to God. I dont think anyone can be too close. And even if you are close, you can get closer. I am going to read my bible more, study my sunday school lesson. Pray often. And if I tell someone I am going to pray for them, I will write their name down so I wont forget.

2. Take care of my body. This is something that I have let go for so many years. This year I joined a gym and have being doing good. I have lost almost 40 lbs since May. I feel great and I do things at the gym I never thought I would. So with all that said, I am going to be sure I excersise EVERYDAY. Even days that I can get to the gym, I will at least go walk or get out and do something.

Thats is pretty much it, everything else will work its self out. Happy New Year!
