Tucker's Birthday

Tucker loves sports and is very good at them. The one that he is especially interested in right now is soccer. So we decided to do a whole soccer theme for his birthday. He was very excited to see all the decorations and his cake.
Aidan didn't quite get the fact that these were Tucker's toys. It's a good thing Tucker is pretty good at sharing

I just love how kids open presents that are in bags with tissue paper. The tissue always goes flying!

I wish that you could see the look that was on his face. He was so excited about his present from Mommy and Daddy. Whenever you get a gift for your kids, you think you've picked out something that they will LOVE. Sometimes we're totally off! This time, however, we got it right on the nose! He really loves it.

I don't think I have ever posted why we have these layered birthday cakes. Chad's Grandma Peterson bought cake pans for this layered cake when her kids were young. From then on she always made a layered chocolate-chocolate birthday cake. When Chad's parents got married she gave them a set of the cake pans. The tradition continued from there. And now the cakes are being made for the fourth generation! I love being able to carry on this fun tradition.

I put this on there 'cause it's just cute!

Isabel's Blessing

It's been a while since I've been able to blog. Things are getting a little more crazy as Isabel is getting older. She was blessed a month ago and I am just now getting around to posting some pictures.
This is me dressing her in her pretty dress with big brother looking on.

I just love this picture!

There are some more pics from that day that I want to put on here. But, they are on Chad's laptop and he is at work. I will have to update it later.
