Easy to Get Carried Away Celebrating

It may not look like it from the picture, but Landon really worked up a sweat at gymnastics on Monday.

Later on that evening, we received word from the ad agency doing the Chrysler ads Landon is in that they wanted to put his picture in a poster Chrysler will sell on its website (feel free to buy one!).
(He's in the bottom row, third from the left.)
Our big event of the week was Eliza’s first birthday, with accompanying celebrations.

The birthday girl received some new outfits and presents from family and friends.

Her mom and dad (mostly Hallie) took some time to make some treats and have some special goodies made for her party on Friday night. We went with a Minnie Mouse theme.

That night, several of Eliza and Landon’s friends and their parents helped us celebrate Eliza’s birthday with a party!

The kids around Landon's age took to beating each other senseless with the balloons we scattered all over the floor. A little too much sugar, maybe?

Once she figured out that we wanted her to eat her cupcake, she went for it with gusto!

(Hallie had to help out a little there with some extra candy for the piñata.)
Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!

We have had a mild winter so far, but we knew snow and cold had to come eventually. Friday night into Saturday, the snow fell and the temperature dropped more than 20 degrees from above freezing to feeling like it was below zero with the wind chill. Brr! Of course, the cold did not stop Landon, who donned his snow duds to spend some time on ice. We didn’t let him stay out for too long, but Mike got the bright idea from Pinterest to bring the snow indoors so he could continue to play. The best part is that the snow will just drain out of the tub as it melts. Brrrrilliant!
