Happy Birthday to Evie! Today is actually Evie's birthday, but we celebrated yesterday (Sunday). She had her party at the jump place here in town... it's always fun and popular with the kids :) I can hardly believe she is 4 years old! And Drew is right behind her! We love you Evie Kate!
There's the birthday girl!
Bennett looks such like a little man in this picture :)

Evie was so happy to have her cousins Kinlee, Jax and Knox at her birthday! They drove down from Springdale just to celebrate with Evie. Jax and Evie ran around holding hands while they were playing, it was so cute :)
I almost forgot... today on Evie's birthday Anna let her choose somewhere for us to eat lunch together. I would say guess where she chose, but I don't think you would be able to .... Evie chose for us to have lunch at Western Sizzlin! Evie loves her some Sizzler. She gets it honest from her Daddy. We pulled up in the parking lot and Drew said "Momma are you sure this is Evie's birthday place?"ha!
Drew had her preschool Valentine Day party yesterday. It had to be rescheduled for this week due to snow last week. They did ice cream sundaes and it was adorable... my favorite party so far! They even ate their ice cream in the little glass ice cream cups, so cute!
This is the reason we had those silly huge heart sunglasses.... so we could get a group picture with the whole class :)
As we were leaving, we spotted Evie and Michael playing on the playground and we decided to join them for a minute before we left.
Evie Kate... who by the way, is turning 4 next week!!
We made it through Bennett's first birthday party!! It was fun, but simple. We opened presents (or at least attempted to) Drew and I pretty much did that for Bennett :), ate cake and ran and played in Lolly's gym! I'm pretty sure Bennett had no idea it was his birthday, but he did have a good time! I still can't believe he is a year old! He is walking more and more everyday. He still crawls the majority of the time, he is super fast so I can't blame him for taking the easy way.ha! But, randomly I will look over and he will be toddling around the room. It's so cute;)
Sweet Birthday Boy
This lasted for about 2.5 seconds and he was done... it was worth a try!
Drew was very entertaining opening his presents, she had cute comments for each gift!
Finley brushing up on her big sister skills... she will be one soon!
Which one is the monkey?!
This picture cracks me up! The true party animals!
Bennett's favorite activity of the night... sliding down on his belly, he had no fear!
The cake! Which by the way, came from HARP's ! I thought they did a great job, plus it tasted sooo good!
Momma needed a taste ;)
Max kept a close eye on Bennett all night. He's such a sweetie ;)
We took Bennett for a little fun at Playtime Pizza on his big day :)
Well, it's really hard for me to believe that a year ago today my sweet Bennett came into this world! I blinked and the year was gone. Little did I realize that the day I scheduled my c-section (Feb.2nd) was Groundhog's Day (guess I never paid much attention to the holiday :)! So, this morning as I was walking upstairs to get Bennett from his crib, I passed the TV and they were waiting on that punxsutawney phil to come out and I smiled because today my little Bennett is a year old! Having a boy has brought such a fun change to our household! Man, is he ever BUSY! As I was folding laundry the other day, I was looking at Bennett's little jeans and how he has worn holes in the knees... it made me laugh because Drew's jeans would NEVER have been that worn...seems to be the difference between my sweet girl and sweet boy! I have grown to love searching for boy clothes and how he looks like such a little man in them. And I CAN. NOT. get over how much boys LOVE any kind of ball or something they can push around the floor! It is the cutest thing! And I must say, mommas and their boys have something special... I can't really describe it, but it is special. Brandan, Drew and I love our Bennettboo to the moon and back (as Drew would say); you make our family complete! Happy 1st Birthday Bennett!
Brandan and I are proud parents of Miss Drew Elizabeth and a sweet baby boy, Bennett Lee. Brandan works at Everett in management and I stay at home with Drew and Bennett. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy spending time at the gym, I think it helps to keep me sane! Being a mom is a wonderful thing and has changed my life all for the better!
