Grey's birthday party was Saturday and boy did we have fun! He was an absolute angel, greeting all of his friends and not showing that shy side that he sometime does. Even though the weather was no good I couldn't help but to be filled with joy looking around the house filled with all of Grey's closest friends, their parents, and our family. I can't help but to think back to when Grey turned one. We had been in Montgomery for one year and I longed for close friends to share such a special moment with. Our wonderful families were there to help celebrate but I couldn't think of any friends in town that could join us. Marc and I then began to pray for Christ centered friendships. We asked that the Lord bring friends into our lives that were close like so many couples we experienced friendship with in college. My God is good! It brings tears to my eyes to think of the blessings we have received. Thank you Lord for your love, your grace, and your greatness. Thank you friends for your talents, your acceptance, and most of all your friendship.

First year he blew the candles out all by himself!
Nothing like a little leaf blowing on a rainy day with 17 of my closest friends! My cousin Quinn will be so proud!

Today was Grey's birthday party. I cannot believe my little love bug is already turning 4! His gift from all of our family, grandparents and great-grandparents was this tractor. I'm pretty sure it has many miles to ride! Anderson even loved riding in the trailer! Thanks MawMaw, Re, PaPaw, Mimi, Pop, MaMa and Granddaddy. We love you very much!

Today we had two goals—have fun and don't spend any money! We decided to pack a lunch a head down to Old Alabama Town for a picnic and play time. The weather was just right. After lunch we went to the River walk to let Grey run off some steam. There are so many great textures and colors to take pictures with. As we were leaving Grey begged to play in the splash pad, so we did! Needless to say, both boys are sacked out.

Gosh it has been so long! I was so excited to have time to play around in the kitchen today. I'm sure Marc and the boys were too! After a yummy supper of homemade mac-n-cheese and poppyseed chicken we had monkey cupcakes! They were so much fun to make and even more fun to eat. I think Anderson will back me up on this one.
