Happy Birthday Amy and Anthony!

So, Anthony has truly had a birthday week! Even though his birthday was really Thursday, I’ve tried to celebrate for him a little every day this past week! My sister Amy’s birthday was yesterday, so after we left our Amazing Hot Springs Getaway this morning, we drove to my sister’s house for a joint family birthday party.

We were greeted by the newly walking Emma Kate (my niece)….


And, Owen is a great big brother and loves to help her with her new walking skills….


Dinner was grilled burgers, veggies, potato salad, and baked beans…


After dinner, it was gift time!! Emma Kate helped Anthony open his gifts….he got gift cards to one of his favorite places, Lowe’s…and a new wallet + some cash. Thank you, Mom, for planning such a nice party for us!


And, Amy got gift certificates to her favorite spa!


Cookie cake…


My slice + ice cream…


Owen loved the cookie + ice cream….


How did the weekend go by so fast?? Before we realized it, it was time to head home…before we left, I helped pack Owen’s lunch for pre-school- He just started a couple of weeks ago. I can’t believe he’s just 3 and already going to school! Anyway, we packed him a delicious lunch…peanut butter sandwich, sunchips, yogurt, blueberries, and juice- sounds good to me- in the coolest Cars lunchbox!


I hope you’ve had a great weekend. I’m feeling rested and refreshed, but not quite ready for the weekend to be over. Oh well, gotta get ready for Monday anyway.

  1. Sounds like Anthony had a great Birthday Week! 🙂

    I love when babies first start to walk. Emma Kate is soooo cute. And Owen is just the cutest (and most helpful) big brother!

    Have a great week!

  2. That’s one healthy lunchbox!! Wow, those other kids will be very jealous 🙂

    I love cookie cakes, I haven’t had one in so long. We used to get them for all birthdays in my family, but they sort of died out I guess…I’ll have to bring that tradition back, yum!

  3. Looks like such a wonderful time! Such adorable pictures, always makes me smile 🙂 I’m not quite ready for monday either. We went to a friend’s bbq and I lost track of time and got home too late last night! I need a nap!

  4. Emma Kate is adoreable!
