Happy Birthday Logan!!

I can’t believe my baby is 3 today!

Birthday, Birthday, Birthday, Birthday, Birthday!

(They did turn 5…hence the 5 birthday’s up there. Although, there are 2 of them, so perhaps I should have done 10? 😉 )

We celebrated Burke and Maggie’s birthday yesterday. I still can’t believe I’m a mom to two 5 year olds. CRAZY!!

We had a blast! Grandpa, Nana, Aunt Meghan, and Aunt Cathy came over to help celebrate, and Grandpa brought one of his famous shaped cakes. (You may remember Mickey Mouse from Logan’s birthday in September, Tyrone from the twins’ birthday last year, or Elmo and McQueen from years past…)

This year, my dad made Cinderella!

Everyone had their tiara on.

Mike grilled up some grub: Hamburgers, Hot dogs, Kielbasa, Steak, potatoes, and Asparagus.


And, of course, there were tons of presents.



My goodness. I can’t believe you’re TWO today!

You amaze me with things you do every day. You’re such a “Burke shadow” (which he loves). You want to do everything that he does. To the point where it seems you’re learning new things too quickly! 🙂

You’re communicating your wants and needs much more clearly now. You still don’t have all of the words and sounds that you’re supposed to – but we’re working on it! And holy improvements in just the past few months alone.

You look like such a little kid now. No more babies in THIS family. That’s for sure.

I can’t wait to see what the next year brings 🙂

We love you!!!


Happy Birthday (Aunt) Meghan!!

Holy cow. 18?! And off to college too. CRAZY!!

I hope you have a wonderful year…go crazy without getting into too much trouble 😉
