Celebrating 2nd Birthdays

We were blessed to celebrate three, TWO-year old birthdays, with TWO parties at The Little Gym this month.  This was also our first time to visit The Little Gym and all its wonder!!!

Kellen's party was first!
To all of our surprise - Hunter jumped right in and acted as if he didn't have a shy bone in his body!  He was super pumped! 
First attempt on the balance beam . . .
Balls, bubbles, and parachutes - So much fun (for all ages)
Best Buds
Hang on --  Going for a wild ride
Baby Landon enjoyed his first party too
The blow-up trampoline was probably the biggest hit. 
 I need one of these for the house . . .
I loved watching my big boy open up and have such a fun time.  He was too precious running around, bouncing from one thing to the next, laughing like a wild man.
Happy Birthday Kellen!
We're so thankful to have you (and your mommy & daddy) as such great friends, & love that Hunter has a sweet friend to get rough & rowdy & wrestle with!!

Our second party was to celebrate Payton & Parker's birthday!  
Hunter knew what to expect this time around and was beyond excited!!  Of course there was more balls, bubbles, and parachute fun
We even saw some improvement on the gymnastics equipment . . .
3 Monkeys  --  Ava, Noah, & Parker
Hunter had a bit of competition for Ava's attention from this adorable 'older man'
Watch out Ava!  Hunter tried to sneak a quick sugar while waiting in line for a ride on the wheel!!  hahaha  I love the uninhibited innocence of children . . .
Burn - Energy - Burn
Boys will be boys
Hunter was attached to Ava's hip all night.  We couldn't keep from laughing at him.  Every step she took, Hunter was right there.  I love that he has a best friend, I just hope Ava doesn't feel smothered.  ;)
Birthday Diva - Payton - So Stylish
Parker wasn't too interested in opening gifts . . . 
so Hunter thought he'd step up and help his cousin out
Happy Birthday Parker and Payton!
We are so thankful to have ya'll as friends and family.  You are both beautiful and precious little girls, and we love you so very much!

"May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you."

2012 Cotton Bowl - WPS

After a great 2011 season, the Arkansas Razorbacks made it to the Cotton Bowl!  Woo Pig Sooey - it was a day to celebrate, and no better way, than to enjoy a sunshiny day with friends at the park !  Everyone had fun, but no one but the mommies really wanted to pause to take a picture.  :)
After a fun day of play, Hunter helped me get ready for our family football party.
We love our brownies . . . and I love this sweet face
Who doesn't love to lick the bowl ?
And get messy ?  :)
The table is set --
But you can't watch football without pizza !!
Proud to call those HOGS - WOOOOOO!! Pig Sooey!! Razorbacks
Hunter cheered along side mommy and daddy but couldn't keep his little eyes open to celebrate the win! This family always supports our Razorbacks, but it sure is fun when we WIN!!  

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
