Tucker's actual birthday, March 4, we had a little mini family party. I bought him a big cupcake with blue icing and he had an absolute blast. I bought one for Carter too, and well... he had just as much fun! We had such a mess that we had to put both of them in the tub at the same time. There was blue icing everywhere. Their ears, their noses, their hair... you name it.
Then on Saturday we celebrated in true 1st birthday fashion and he had a wonderful time. The house was full of family and friends. I really enjoy having people over for parties and such. It's an instant, clear reminder of how blessed we are to have such great friends and family.
The party was a farm theme, did you expect anything less?! We had cow printed balloons everywhere, and a cake with a farm scene on it. Tucker loved his hotdog, chips, and the cake!! Carter enjoyed helping him blow out the candle, and opening all his gifts.
We gave him a Mickey Mouse ride-on toy, and he LOVES it!!!! He pushes the button over and over so the propeller will turn. I didn't think he'd like it as much as he does. He has lots of new jammies and summer outfits.
I'm still a little in shock that he's already one, but.... that's okay. Each year that passes is another year full of blessings and one ahead that is full of adventure and excitement! He's such a busy little rascal I can only imagine what he'll get himself into next!
HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY BEAR!!!
I am a wife & mother. My husband is Travis and we have two beautiful boys, Carter and Tucker, that bring us more joy than we ever dreamed possible!These three consume my life and I am so grateful that God has allowed me to be a part of their lives. Travis is an amazing husband. He deals with my moody self with no complaints! Carter is a loving, happy, and on the go six year old. He makes us smile regardless of the situation. Tucker is our shy guy, but don't let the shyness fool you he's a firecracker underneath! His giggle is contagious, his eyes sparkle, and he gives the sweetest kisses! My family is pretty much my life, all the other stuff are extra blessings. I started this blog as a reminder to myself the days I wish to remember.
I started blogging in April of 2008. I wasn't really sure of what I was doing when I started this whole thing or whether or not I'd even stick with it. Looking back over the past year, I am so grateful that I jotted down the little memories that make up our life. The days pass so quickly I don't want to forget the funny little things that my children say or the moments that brought smiles to my face, or the bumps in the road that made my faith stronger. Blogging has become a part of my routine. I enjoy looking back and reading things that happened weeks back, and also sharing what's going on in our lives with my family & friends.

I thank God for my husband, Travis, each and every day. I love the way he puts up with my quirky ways and loves me regardless. He is a true blessing, and my life would not be complete without him. I LOVE YOU TRAV!

My oldest son, Carter. Six years old and full of energy and spunk. Each day is bright and fresh with this child, full of questions and a little heart that over flows with love. He's funny, sweet, and brings more smiles to my life then I ever dreamed possible!!! I LOVE YOU MORE CARTER!!!

My little Tucker, a.k.a Tucker Bear, is such a little firecracker!! He is shy at times but when it's just us at home, expect the unexpected!!! He loves to sing. He loves to do whatever his Daddy and brother are doing. His eyes sparkle like stars and he gives the sweetest kisses. He's the life of the party, too! Twinkle, twinkle... I love you!
