Soccer Pics

I was concerned that the professional soccer photos would not be great, since Watts does not exactly have the best track record with what one of my friends calls "crunch time" photo situations, and since parents were not allowed into the photo area.  I was pleasantly surprised when I got back this handsome photo...
Other than a little messy hair, I thought it was great.  His team photo was cute, also.  You can tell what a rule follower he is from his pose.  He must take after me; I hope he stays that way in the teen years!
Go Eagles!

Corinne's 2nd BirthDAY (continued)

Back at home, we were on cuteness overload...






I love this sweet face!
Kisses from Mawmaw Shirley...
Our party favors were "Beanie Boos."  The kids loved them...

Time to open presents!

The Elsa and Anna umbrella was a big hit...



A Minnie Mouse game for her Leap Pad...(handed down from all her older siblings!)

She immediately put her purse on her shoulder...😂





She took her puppy for a stroll in her new stroller...

Birthdays mean gifts for everyone.  Here's a happy boy with his new Transformer...

Taking a few calls on her new cellphone, AKA a calculator...
Stella loved this prompted journal...



She's so happy!

We had a great day celebrating with our sweet little Wren.  She did have her birthday breakfast in her big girl bed, but there is only video of that and no still pictures.  Hopefully I will learn how to post video one day.  What a backlog of posts I'll have then!

Corinne's 2nd BirthDAY Party, Part 3

Time for some refreshment!  
Cille didn't realize she was obstructing the birthday girl...
Would you like to take a stroll down memory lane? Here's our family with Stella at her two-year-old party...
Here's the family with Cille at her two-year-old party...
 Here's the family with Watts at his two-year-old party...
 And here we all are, together at last at Corinne's two-year-old party...
Those paying attention might have noticed that Corinne's two-year-old party was the first one that Mom was not pregnant for.  Hooray for our family being complete!  Here's the view from the other end of the table...
Corinne's Minnie Mouse balloon sang "Happy Birthday" to her...


Time to sing and blow out the candles...


She had a little trouble with that second candle...
Yum!
What are you lookin' at?
Thanks to all our friends and family who helped us celebrate Corinne's birthday!  We are so blessed to have such a loving village helping raise our children!
