Josiah's 2nd Birthday Celebration

The peanut guy that we buy boiled peanuts from every weekend gave Josiah a free cup!

Aunt Rose and Josiah.  Aunt Rose came over the night before to stay with the kids while Joseph and I went on a date!  Thanks again Aunt Rose!

Love this one!  

Aunt Rose gave Josiah a pirate look with his new washable markers.  These were actual washable markers...the writing came off with a wet paper scrubbing necessary! 

Fantastic Four

Only a fantastic four year old would get to celebrate his birthday three times!  This year we decided to tone down the craziness of a birthday party and in the end we all had a wonderful time.  So here he big boy with his birthday presents...talking Dinosaurs.  Now, not only do they talk, but they all talk to each other!  They are great.  Joseph and I had so much fun playing with them in the middle of the toy aisle at Wal-Mart. We couldn't just get one...since they talked to each other we got two! Happy Birthday Josiah!

My mom took us out to I Hop on Josiah's birthday.  He loves pancakes and mom wanted to treat him to some for his birthday.  We missed my dad, Joseph, and Jonathan, but the rest of us had a pretty good time.  

Josiah's Birthday Breakfast

Aunt Gabby brought cupcakes to celebrate!

Thanks mom for the treat!  

After breakfast I asked Josiah where he wanted to go next and of course with no hesitation he said Target!  He loves to go to Target.  We go at least once a week and he looks forward to it every time! After Target we stopped by my mom's house to see my dad.  Dad as always serenaded Josiah with "Happy Birthday" and spent some time with the birthday boy.

Josiah you grow up more and more everyday.  You have had a tough time adjusting to our new family of five, but I know it's just a phase and will pass soon.  I love you so very much and thank God for allowing me to be your momma.  Josiah sweet son you are fearfully and wonderfully made and I pray that God's favor will be upon you always.  I love you!

Beep Beep

Enjoyed watching the kids play this morning.  They had a full morning...complete with a trip to target and a couple of other stops on the way.  I Love their imaginations and how they can take a simple breakfast table and it suddenly becomes their very own car!  They would pull the chair out, get in and pull the chair back as if they were closing the "door."  I had fun watching them play together and am thankful for special times like these when they are not going back and forth with each other.  Makes me feel like I might be doing something right after all ha!

It was sissy's turn to drive

Cranking the "car"

Playing cool in the driver's seat

Oh...and this trip to Target included a pit stop too!  I heard them making "pooting" noises.  When I came over to check out what they were doing I found sissy with her pants down, sitting on the window sill.  I, in my "serious mommy voice" proceeded to tell her that "we do not pull our pants down and sit on the window...  I did my best at not laughing because it was just so darn funny!  

As you can see I had to use my "serious mommy voice" for bubba too.  My kids seriously come up with the strangest things, but I love it! 

Aunt Gabby

Thanks for coming over last night.  We enjoyed playing hide and go seek, pretending the breakfast table was a car, and running around while you chased us.  Thanks for being such an awesome aunt...oh and for all the toys you buy us too! I'm sure momma and daddy appreciated the fact that you made us so tired we passed out on the complaining about bed time...just flat passed out.  So a big THANK YOU from them too.

We had a great time...please come back soon!
You are an amazing aunt and we are so thankful for all you do.  

Love, Little Man, Sissy, and Little Miss :)
