My baby is nine

I can't believe my little Alexander turned nine this past week, I don't even know where that nine years went. It just zoomed right by. I also have the pleasure of sharing a birthday with him! :) We had a fun party with just family over. My boys are both very shy and don't like to be the center of attention, so we keep their birthday parties small for them. Alex want's to be a sheep farmer when he grows up (he has said this since he was like 3) so he chose to have a sheep themed  party this year. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

my husband finishing up decorating the cake. every birthday we ask our boys if they want to have a cake made by a bakery or if they want it homemade, they always pick homemade.
 cutest sheep cake ever, right?
 a few years ago I started making a felt buddy to go with whatever birthday theme my boys pick. so meet shawn.

 Opening a sheep we gave him, yes it is the exact same sheep my parents gave him.

Not enjoying everyone looking at him. :)
my birthday cake!

 Birthday boy!

ignore my messy bangs.

Happy Wednesday!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! I just wanted to share these adorable pictures that I came across while coming up with ideas for my boys new room. I think these are a little girly for them, but I might use the ideas in a few years when our little girl is old enough.

Half way!!

I am 20 weeks pregnant as of yesterday, can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going. We have our 20 week scan this Monday, can't wait for all that anxiety to be over with. She's getting big in there, yesterday she was sticking her foot out so much that we could feel it. Most days she's still pretty chilled out in there, but every once in a while she seems to be doing a gymnastics routine. :)

Happy Love day!!!

Just wanted to pop in and wish you all a Happy Valentines day! I hope your day is full of love! My boys and I spent a good part of the day making sugar cookies. You know those amazing soft cake like sugar cookies you get in your local bakery? Well, I found an amazing recipe for them, I have been wanting to try them for a few months and I am so glad we made them today. They. are. amazing.

ps: you can find the recipe here
