Ok, if anyone is still out there I am working on an update now. I am uploading pics from Cole's bday party. My baby is officially 2

Photobucket is being really slow though and I have a lot of pics so it probably won't be until sometime tomorrow. Please be patient with me and I will get it up as soon as I can.

Let me first apologize for being a bad hostess again. It seems as though life keeps getting in the way of my dis time,lol. Things have been crazy around here as they always are at this time of year. We had to plan and have Cole's bday. We are planning Dylan's bday the 13th of next month, we are doing field trips and all the other end of the year type things at the boys' schools. I will try to get some of Cole's bday pics up now though and will work on the rest soon..I promise.

In case you didn't know, the theme for Cole's bday was 'The Dog'. I wanted to do Cars (since this is his favorite thing in the world right now) but my best friend who's little boy will be 2 next month wanted to do that also and she didn't want them to have the same theme. Soooo, I decided to go with 'The Dog' because he loves dogs so much too. I'm sure he will still be into Cars for next year.

We held it at the park shelter house one block from our house.

The dessert table:

the cake and cupcakes I saw online and had my mom recreate:




some dog bone sugar cookies and puppy chow I made and put into dog bowls to serve. The hershey kisses have stickers on the bottom that say Cole's 2nd birthday with a picture of a dog. (don't mind the red cups..I know they don't match but we had forgot to get them)




the rest of the tables


close up of table


balloon bouqet that was on the dessert table but Cole had to have it


waiting for the fun to begin. Here is where you can tell mommy got carried away and accidentally cut his hair too short. He ended up with a buz cut for his bday,lol...oh well.


random shots of the party






Cole and my best friend's little boy Alex. We accidentally put them in the same jacket this day..makes it even harder to tell them apart from the back,lol.


Blake and my niece Madelyn being silly (and my mom)




Ok, I better go for now. I will return with the blowing out the candles and presents portion.

Thanks. I know, he is getting too tall. He is like Dylan that way. Dylan was always in the 95th-100th percentile for height for his age and so is Cole. Then I have Blake who is little bitty,lol.

They were pretty good I hear. I didn't eat any though. It might be weird but neither one of my brothers or I will eat my mom's icing anymore. She used to decorate cakes for a living while we were growing up and so we used to eat a LOT of it. Now we are all sick of it,lol.

I know I really didn't like it at first and I figured out that is why I didn't like it. My friend Krista and I were saying that with that haircut and his height he looks like a little boy who was turning 3, not 2 The girl who cut his hair got it a little crooked this time and I was so tired of it always standing up in the back so I just wanted to trim it some. Unfortunately I was standing above him while I did it and so while it looked great from that angle, I was really bummed when I saw him head on. I do have to say it is growing on me though. It also helps that the 2 little boys who live across the street, who are the same age as him, also got a buz cut.

Anyway, I am working on putting the rest up now.

Ok, I'm going to try and get the rest of Cole's bday on here finally. Warning: as always I took a lot of photos... I will try to narrow it down some.

It's time for cake!
Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Cole, happy birthday to you!!


blow out the candles


he ended up getting a little drool on the cake while trying to blow out the candles,lol. It was cute though and no one had to eat that side


yummmmm, cupcakes!


licking off the icing


finger licking good


demolishing the cupcake


PRESENT TIME, PRESENT TIME!!

another lightning mcqueen hooded towell




PLUTO!! (remote control) pluto seemed to be his favorite the whole time on our last trip


my friends tigger and pooh shaped crayons I found on disney shopping...so cute!




he kept wandering off to play with whatever he had just opened.


There was more of course but I don't want to bore you too much.

Then it was time for the BIG present from Mommy and Daddy. Each of the boys got a big present for their birthdays this year. Jerry was working on a pipeline last fall and making quite a bit so we wanted to spoil them once. This was huge to them because normally they would never get anything this big even for christmas. Anyway, Dylan and Blake both got Nentendo DS's and Cole got.....

just look at that face, he was so excited... I didn't capture it very well unfortunately though.


A POWER WHEEL!


Blake showing him how it works ( we always wished we could've had one of these for the older boys but we just couldn't afford it, fortunately for Blake he is still small enough to fit in this one.)


Cole and Alex cruisin'






Cole and grandpa (my dad) playing with his new remote control car


something he got with some of his bday money


needless to say, he had a great birthday and was a very spoiled little boy.

It is still soo cute though to see how happy he is every time he gets in his power wheel. He also loves for Blake to drive him when we go on our walks (because he figured out the gas and changing gears right away but not the stearing yet,lol)

Sorry that was so long. I will post an update on the trip soon I hope. Thanks to those who have stuck with me.

He did have a wonderful time and got a lot of neat presents. The fold n'go garage is from Tonka. It goes with those mini wheel pals. I'm not sure if you are familiar with them or not but they have them at Walmart, Kmart and Target to name a few. There are big ones and mini ones. Cole has a lot of each. I love them and so does he. Unfortunately he hasn't really played with the garage yet. My brother and his wife got it for him. I am hoping that as he gets a little bit older he will be more interested in it.

All is well here, just busy. How are things for you? I'm sure you are busy too. Any plans for your Coley's bday yet? It is crazy that my baby is 2 I always forget about it until someone asks how old he is, it is so sad to say he is 2.

WOW! What a great party! I have been thinking a "cars and trucks" theme for Henry's 2nd b-day too, but dogs are a close second. I love the colors and the cupcakes and cake are amazing.

I can't believe how big Cole is. I remember those sweet rolls from your last TR, and now he's a little boy! Same thing with my Henry though.

Sigh.

No prob on the advice I gave earlier - I hope it helps! Sunshine Seasons has lots of American choices - the chicken I've read is REALLY good.

Thanks, I also LOVE the colors. That was one of the selling points to me. Boys and Cars go hand in hand.

I know, I can't believe how big he is either. I don't know what happened to my little butterball

I will have to check out the chicken at Sunshine Seasons.

Just wanted to throw in a little side note

Looks like next year we will be taking a 2 week road trip for vacation. We will be driving out to visit friends in Las Vegas. We will stop to visit family in Az for a day or two on the way and see the Grand Canyon and such. Then, while in Vegas we will head over to Calif. for a day or so and check out Disneyland one day and Legoland, etc.! It's not Disney World but I'm thrilled because according to my hubby we aren't doing disney every year so this will be my way of sneaking it in!

Anyone ever been to Disneyland??
