Carson's Birthday Party!!

We decided that this year would be the first year to throw Carson a big birthday party.  Carson loves every sport so we went with a "BALL" party.  The party was at our church gymnasium and we had every kind of ball imaginable.  We had soccer balls, basket balls, footballs, beach balls, tennis balls, and more.  There were little kid basketball goals, a soccer goal, a football tee, and bowling.  We had fun with a parachute, the kids had a big race, and we also had a pinata full of candy.  I think the kids favorite was the parachute, they knew exactly what to do and they all went crazy throwing the balls around.  The kids had a wonderful time!!  The party went better than expected.  Carson has great friends and we were so glad that so many were able to celebrate with us.  Thank you to my entire family for helping put it all together!  We are so proud of Carson.  He is growing up to be such a great boy!

Carson Turns 3!!!

Three years old is the age when kids first start to understand that it is their birthday.  Carson was so excited that it was his birthday and that he would be getting presents.  One night I heard him in bed singing Happy Birthday to himself.  It is so cute!  We first celebrated his birthday with family at Chuck-E-Cheese.  Carson and his cousins had so much fun.  We could have stopped there and Carson would have been great.  But of course this was the year I decided to do a big birthday party.  It was work but it was worth it!!  More to come on that later.

Trick or Treat

Carson had so much fun Trick or Treating for his very first time.  At one house he decided to just walk on in the house.  It is funny he loved getting all the candy but has not asked to eat any of it.  After Halloween Bubba decided it would be fun to smash a pumpkin.  So we helped Carson climb a ladder and let him push the pumpkin off the top.  Carson thought it was great.

More Halloween

Caron is now old enough that Justin had to carve a pumpkin.  He did a great job!  Carson wanted Donald Duck and he got it.  Justin really did carve the pumpkin.  He did have some help from a pumpkin curving kit.  We all had more Halloween fun at the church festival.  This year Justin and I had a costume party to go to so we dressed up as DJ Lance Rock and Foofa from the kids show "Yo Gabba Gabba".  Carson thought is was great.  I wish I had a picture of him seeing us in our costumes for the first time.  It was priceless.
