Busy. Busy. Busy.

June 7, 2011

Keeping up with these two has been hectic over the past few weeks. I’m sorry for not posting as often as I  normally would. Ah, that is summer time! Two kids with summer birthdays and lots of fun activities!

We celebrated the L Bug’s first birthday with a wonderful pool party and a shameless rip off of Nella’s birthday cake and color scheme from Kelle Hampton’s beautiful blog, Enjoying the Small Things. As soon as I saw her amazing photos I just knew that I would love something similar for Leighton. So sweet and perfect for a first birthday!

My little one loved her party. She clapped her hands and laughed all evening…even when it was so obvious that she needed to go to bed ASAP. She never cried. She just rested her head on her daddy’s shoulder and drank it in.

Wide eyed, looking at her cake. There is nothing that this bug enjoys more than frosting!

We sat in the grass, sipping Sangria with friends. We splashed in the water and tickled tiny toes pruned from the pool. We sang “Happy Birthday” to the most beautiful little girl in my world.

It was so good…we forgot about ordering way too much food for 20 people. We forgot about the wind blowing the balloons away. We just enjoyed the sun sinking lower in the sky and the sounds of our children laughing.  Morgan was thrilled that most party guests were “his friends” and kept thanking me for the wonderful pool party. He helped to open sister’s gifts the next morning and gave me his sunniest smile when I reminded him that the presents actually belonged to “baby Leighton”. My guy responded “I know, Mama. But, we can SHARE.”

I am so proud of these sweet and loving children!
