This is my sweet friend, Rachelle who is part of a great website called Callmom.co where you can submit questions about children, marriage, family, life, love, anything you may have a question about and get answers from 4 experienced, Godly moms in different stages of life. It's pretty great! And what's greater is they are having a retreat giveaway contest! Check out the video and enter! Good luck! I'm off to take some frazzled mom pictures....it's not too far fetched around here!
Just a few things that I love about you... (I have to stick to a few because there are too many to name here)
I love... That you let me be on your team
How you miss your brothers when they aren't with you
That you always want me to sit with you
The way you copy what Hunter says who copies what Jay says
You have the best grumpy face, hands down
When you come to me with whatever you are wanting hidden behind your back and you sloooowly pull it out to show me
You recently say "I neba..."(transaltion: never) "I neba get to eat an apple...I neba get to play outside...I neba get to sleep in your bed..." And I roll my eyes every time because it's always something ridiculous
The Lego creations you build on your own
You play "weird" (according to Jay anyway)
That you don't like to be called Booba anymore. You say "my name is Ty-lar!!"
I could go on and on.
I love you so much and I am so glad I get to be your mommy!

We had a little birthday party for Hunter this weekend with a few close friends and it was so. much. fun. I love how at this age they host the party themselves. I hung some streamers, made cupcakes, and a few party favors and the rest was all Jay and Hunter. I sat back and visited with the mommies. :)
Streamers. (please excuse the unfinished drywall in the background...it's a work in progress)
Star Wars finger puppet favors. Pattern found here.
Along with "tickets" for the party made by Jay and Hunter.
Chocolate Zucchini cupcakes found here. So yum! With free printable cupcake toppers found here.
When our guests arrived there were two impromptu Jedi costumes made. (I knew it was going to be a fun party...i got to play dress up with little girls! Fun!)
A quick pillowcase dress for Cousin Madelynn.
And a lovely floral tunic for Aunt Lexi.
Here are a few of our guests:
A variety of Jedi types.
The best part was the Jedi training and each trainee was awarded with a Jedi Training Certificate.
I think the party was a success. I had one tired little Jedi to prove it! (well, a few!)
Happy Birthday, Hunter! I love you! <3
