"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Carson turns THREE!

Our baby boy turned three today! When tucking him in the night before his birthday, I got a bit teary at the realization that time really is flying by! Carson is turning into an incredibly sweet, compassionate, energetic little boy! His birthday morning began with his favorite donut on the "It's your special day" plate I made for my kids back in March with Erica. It was always a tradition in my family growing up (most birthdays) that you got to open your presents first thing in the morning. Sometimes we were still in our pj's and in bed when getting them! We let Carson open his presents after breakfast, and he was really excited to see new trains and train tracks! His favorite train right now is Spencer from Thomas and Friends, so we made sure to get him the best Spencer out there, the talking Spencer! After playing and setting up all of his new trains and tracks, we took cupcakes to Carson's preschool for a birthday party with his class. Ms. Betsy had made Carson a special birthday hat, and even went as far to grab Hannah from her class next door so she could participate in the celebration. Carson's classmates were so sweet and sang him Happy Birthday...that was of course after their ADORABLE ABC prayer!! We continued Carson's birthday celebration with a family Thomas the Train party at Chuck E Cheese later that evening. Yummy Thomas the Train cupcakes... Carson had an absolute blast at Chuck E Cheese. He played ski ball... And a water shooting game... And even found his way around the play tunnels too... Tanner loved all of the games and wore Papa out by running all over the place! Looks like everyone found something fun to keep them busy!
We visited Chuck E Cheese the Mouse... Ate pizza... Sang Happy Birthday to our birthday boy!... And opened awesome gifts too... Thank you Aunt Erica, Uncle Scott, and Benson too for the fun Thomas gifts!! What a fun day we had celebrating our Carson James!
