your story

Oh little girl. Let me tell you your sweet little story. We have dreamed about you for a very, very long time. I asked Daddy to stay home & help me with G's birthday party on Monday. We spent the morning getting the house all clean and set up for the party. I was so busy, I didn't even have time to eat (comes in handy later). All the guests arrived and the party went on as expected, until my doctor's office called and asked me to come in... right then. Yikes, I wasn't even close to ready. I left the party before it was over and went to my doctor's office. He put me on a monitor, then told me he would deliver you that night!!! I definitely was not prepared. He told me because I hadn't eaten anything, I would be able to deliver you that night at 5:00pm. He told me to go straight to the hospital and check in. WOW! I didn't see that coming! :) I ran home and packed a small bag for us and meet dad.... all the while thinking about how we haven't decided on a name yet! Daddy was so, SO excited! I was growing a little nervous, yet anxious to meet you. Together we checked into the hospital. You were born at 5:24 pm. You weighed 6 pounds 3 ounces. We were overwhelmed with joy as you entered this world. What an amazingly spiritual experience, we will never forget. We were in love with you instantly. G and P couldn't keep their eyes off you. Welcome to the world sweet baby girl!

Birthday Boy!

we made little tool belts with each boys name on them filled with tape measures, levels, safety goggles, screwdrivers... and they had cute little construction hats with their names on them. We even found cute cone shaped water bottles for the boys.

the table cloth was old construction plans with a paint bucket filled with hammers for the center piece. Each boy had a little project they were able to construct.
As party favors, we sent home mini "tool boxes" filled with goodies. we made them out of wooden boxes, spray painted red with drawer pulls on top.
boys took home a cupcake with a construction truck on chocolate icing with oreos sprinkled to look like dirt!
birthday boy!! can't believe this little guy is 6!!!

the pinata was a big construction truck. huge hit! :)
Happy birthday sweet boy! you have been such a blessing in all the lives you have touched. We are grateful to call you ours! Love you!
