GW's First Birthday Party!!!

 We had so much fun celebrating Gunner's first birthday on Saturday.

Lots of tractors, pumpkins, friends and family made for a great day!

My Mom and I love Fall, so we had fun decorating outside for this party.
My Grandparents gave me this John Deere pedal tractor when I was two-years-old.
Last year, my Grandpa restored it...looks good as new, doesn't it?!

John Deere green and yellow, orange pumpkins, and of course turquoise...perfect!  

I used the monthly carseat pictures as part of the decorations.


With Gaga's help, I made the cute pumpkin cake and smash cake.
I ordered the adorable cupcake toppers off Etsy.

The popcorn bar was a fun {and easy} addition.

My sweet happy family!

 The birthday boy!



The kids had fun decorating pumpkins!

Two of my best girlfriends and their sweet kids were there to celebrate with us.

And when the party was over...GW really enjoyed himself!

A big thank you to all of our friends and family who helped celebrate Gunner's special day with us!

The Little Buckaroo {{1-year-old}}


It really doesn't seem like it's been a whole year since our little G-Dub made his appearance and completed our little family.
His smile brightens our every day.

He's a busy little boy and all boy he is.
He likes rocks, football, animals and tractors.

The true son of a rancher, he prefers steak.
His Mama's boy, he loves ice cream.

He give the BEST kisses.
He waves hi and bye and has just began to say "hi" and "bye" along with it.
He'll occasionally say "here" when he hands you something.

I LOVE to watch him and his sister interact. 
They are already the best of friends {and at times, the biggest of enemies}!

The hair really does shine red at times, and boy does he have a temper to match it.

I can't believe this is the last monthly carseat picture.
And in true GW fashion, he was a ham.

We had a little photo shoot the other day to capture a couple of 1-year-old pictures...

Happy Birthday G-Dub!!!
We love you SO much!

Pumpkin Patch

Well hello my friends!  It's been WAY too long.
I am so behind in the blogging world {among other things in my life!}, I debated trying to go back and catch up on posts and settled on just picking up right now.  
So here we go...

My Mom and Dad just returned from a weeks vacation, so that means I got to stay home with the littles for a week.
We had lots of fun.
One day included a visit to the pumpkin patch with Aunt Katie and Baby Maddie!

It was great.
It was a Wednesday morning and so it wasn't crowded at all.
I was even able to just let GW down to wander around; he of course loved that!


The Little Lady had a blast picking pumpkins out.
She was all set to go home and carve one that afternoon.

And we of course all had fun with Baby Maddie!

So here's to a happy Fall my friends...and a lot less time between visits!
