Austin's 2nd Birthday Party

I am finally getting around to posting pictures of my sweet little boy turning 2!! I can't believe it.
We had a race car themed party with the family this year and it turned out just perfect. I was all done with planning parties when it came time for his and it was just nice to have something more low-key.

Here is the cake that I slaved over for hours- literally. I had no idea it would take so long to make but thanks to my wonderful momma, we got it done and had a good time.

His cute little '2' shirt Cristina and I made him. I think I am going to make it a tradition for however long he lets me make his a birthday shirt...maybe 7 or 8?

His '1' shirt from his first birthday party. It's amazing how much they change in a year!

some food.... of course it was chips and queso but we also had chili and taco soup we served to everyone.

the birthday banner

it was superbowl Sunday too, so we had to have a football shaped cheeseball, right?

it funny how all the siblings end up at the same table with their spouses- I think we must love eachother.

singing Happy Birthday, he loved it.

I had practiced with him all week about his birthday song and showed him how to blow out a candle. At his party all the practicing paid off and he leaned over to blow out his candles all by himself- it was so cute.

his favorite present- the 'Cars' movie themed car set. He still says goodnight to them everynight.

Happy Birthday Austin! We love you soo much!

Hate to break it to you, but you know you're getting old when you have a two year old. I thought I saw you had a gray hair the other day.

I can't believe he's two, he's the sweetest thing ever. I would really like you to take off the picture of me looking like a hefer and delete it from all of your files. I hate it!

Sorry its been a few months since I've blogged and checked in, but I love you and your family so much! Its so weird that Austin and Ada are the same age right now - he's gotten so big! Hope you guys are doing well and feeling good - we love you!
