Big Top = Big Time

We celebrated Gavin's 1st Birthday today and a great time was had by all. Kiddos are in bed, we are exhausted all the while thankful for those who stuck around to help clean up. I can hardly wait to see the pictures. Thank God for my kids Grandma by choice (Darla) or we would not have any pictures ~ this Mommy never picked up a camera.

We hired a balloon artist to entertain the kiddos and he was AMAZING. Look at this lion he made the Birthday Boy.

We had a great day and all our hard work paid off. It was super cheerful and so much fun. I heard several people say....this is like a real carnival (that made my heart smile inside). You know, it makes my heart happy when everyone leaves happy at the end of the party. We sent our guest out the door with loads of Sweet Treats (Hudson even left with a pocket full of M&M's that I snuck to him). Some folks had to make 2 trips to the car (ha ha).

Gavin enjoyed his cake and just decided it was easiest to put his face down in it and eat it up. My favorite part of the day was hearing my 88 year old grandfather chuckle and turning around to see him sitting in a chair behind me doubled over as he laughed hysterically watching his great grandson demolish his cake. If there is one thing he has taught me in life it is...cherish the little things. One of Curtis' cousins ask me, "Is that the Grandpa that taught you all the folk songs you always sing to your kids?" Yep, that's him and he just happens to be the best Papa I know.

Off to lay by my sweet HOTY that is already snoring from working so hard today. I could not ask for a better husband or better Daddy for my children.

I am blessed for so many reasons, but most of all because I have the honor of being part of The Frazier Four!

We had so much fun, especially Hudson! He was digging in his pocket all the way home "sneaking" M&M's!

Even the adults had a super great time! You and Curtis outdid yourselves! I love the way you make amazing memories for your sweet babies.
