I'm 1...

Our sweet boy turned 1 year old today and we couldn't be more proud of him and the handsome little man he has turned into. We decided on having a small BBQ with family and friends and had a great time.
We are so grateful Grandma came for Ty's special day
It was perfect weather to play outside
Dinner was delicious and Ty enjoyed every bite
Family and friends that came for his big day
he was trying to blow out the candles it was so cute
accidently got icing on his foot so Grandpa thought "why not eat it off his foot"
At first he enjoyed eating the cake
but once he noticed himself getting messy it was over
not a happy boy...he kept smearing it all over his legs which really got him angry
he was so done and wanted a bath
lovin his chocolate legs

my boy so so mad and didn't like to be messy
All clean after his bath and so much happier
hanging with Grandpa
opening his presents... "diapers" yeah!
learning laptop from Grandma definetely a favorite
Ty sitting in his new carseat trying to figure how it works
such a happy boy
He loves his Nana and Grandma so much
love our facial expressions
having so much fun with his new toys
After a fun night he was exhausted and fell asleep right away. Thank you so much for a great 1st birthday.
In the morning the kids wrestled with Grandma until it was time to get ready for church

We love you so much and are so thankful for you everyday

NAM 2011

I know what your thinking "Please tell me your not a Toddler and Tiara Mom" the answer is NO.(absolutely no makeup or fake accessories of any kind is allowed) Madelyn loves to sing, dance, dress up, and perfrom so we thought why not enter into a pageant. We found a local one in Seattle called "National American Miss." It was a memorable weekend with tons of fun meeting girls, running around crazy, wearing tiara, dressing up, and feeling like a Princess.
So excited to go to NAM
Here we are ready for the FUN weekend
