Wes' 2nd B-day: Party!!

Westley turns 2 tomorrow, and while it is a holiday, we opted to have his party today.  I was afraid that after the mild winter we have been having we would suddenly get slammed with snow or something- but despite being very cold and blustery we made out with a "nice" day!  I think this is going to be an issue with his January birthday... I'll always be worried of a snow storm!
 We had planned a farm animal theme... I think trucks or dinosaurs would have been his choice had I asked, but I wanted one more year of "cute" before I have to do transformers and construction equipment!  Mom made the invites for me since the craft space has mostly been packed away with plans of a basement remodel.  They were very cute and we carried the barnyard theme into the decor today!  I had ordered some adorable cups and plates online- and got 2 great balloons- a cow and pig!  Wes' cake took me longer than I anticipated and I had to call Mom over early to help with the other food and decorations... but I think it came out pretty cute.  Wes watched me most of the morning and kept saying "an-muls!"

 Billy used his helicopter to fly in a birthday banner-it was very sweet~
 Kelly and Sam come up from Mass, it was very sweet of her to drive all this way on such a cold day.  Wes wasn't very good at sharing with Sam (embarrassing so, since Sam was so good at his birthday a few weeks ago!) but they did seem to enjoy each other a bit.  Nic and Kaleb and Jayson also came; so while it was a small crowd we still filled up the house!  Mom-Mom was here, as well as Wes' Poppie and Grandma Beth.  He got spoiled with lots of great gifts.

Grandma Houston had left her present so Wes got to open that too!  It was a nice day, with fun family and friends... we had no meltdowns (except for Wes telling Nic to go home!)  It is so hard to believe that 2 years ago I was laboring, so anxious to meet my little one.  I can;t imagine life without him now... in fact, I wonder sometimes what we did before him!  He brings so much joy and laughter to the house... Happy Birthday my Sweet Boy!


  1. Oh, how wonderful to share this w/you...Thanks so much & Love to all, Nanny. <3

  2. Happy birthday Mr. Wes! So great to see you, Wes and the whole family - we had a really great time and Sam loves his new tractor toy from his goody-bag :)

    Just think the next time we connect in person there will be a little baby to cuddle! :)

  3. Happy Birthday to your little man! I can't believe how fast they grow up. Sometimes I wish they came with a pause button. You are so talented with your cake decorating! Wish you were around here so I could hire you when I need a cute cake!
    P.S. Sorry that you got pink eye. No fun at all!
