Happy 6th Birthday Finn!

Six years old already?  Really?!!  In some ways it feels like we just brought him home from the hospital and in other ways it feels like he has always been here.  It's hard to remember just exactly what filled up my days before these two kiddos came along!

We celebrated this birthday boy all weekend.  Grandma showed up on Wednesday to surprise the kids & celebrate with us.  It was so nice to have her here, even though it was a short visit.  I don't think I could've pulled off a party without her!  Saturday, Finn had some of his friends over for a little party, Star Wars-style.  Finn decided he wanted a cake instead of the cupcakes I've been able to get away with for the last couple of years.  I love making cakes, but it's been awhile since I've attempted one.  It was all kind of thrown together in two days, but thanks to help from Grandma it was a success!


Sunday was Finn's real birthday so we started off with a special Birthday breakfast, presents from us, a trip to Toys R Us to spend some Birthday money and then a Birthday lunch & movie date!  Such a fun weekend & he was so appreciative of it all.

Cool!  After seeing his cousins get these for Christmas, it was on the top of his wish list! ;)

Thanks, Lilly! 

Love you, sweet Finn.  So excited for this year ahead of you...I know it will be amazing!

We are currently stuck inside in a snow storm, but cozy as can be & just taking it easy.  Photos to come of that later, if we can brave it outside tomorrow.  Stay warm & safe friends!

    1. Thanks, Sara! I could use some cake decorating lessons from you, but it was fun! :)
