Family, Friends, Fun!!

We've had a busy weekend! Lots of fun, lots of running around. Gonna do a quick recap!

Friday night we were invited to have dinner at David's Uncle Steve's house. Davids cousins were in town with their two girls and we thought it would be fun to get all the kids together. It was! The kids had a blast. Steve is planting a garden in his back yard. Half of it is just dirt so far, so he let the kids get out there and play in it. Dirt + kids = fun!

Below are pics of the second cousins: Cruz, Elizabeth, Maddox, and Catherine:

Here I told them to make a silly face (Look how happy Cruz is!!):

Saturday we had a birthday party that I am SO BUMMED I didn't get pictures of. My friend Serenity had a "Candy Land" First Birthday party for her little girl Kheringtyn. The kids had so much fun. Cruz ate candy and lollypops for 2 solid hours. They were in heaven! She did a great job! So cute!

After the party we went to dinner with the Hamptons, Browns, Hutchinsons, and Hermans. We ate at Abuelo's and then took the party to JJ's. A place I had never been to at night. They had a great band....a guitar/singer and a drummer who used a paint bucket to drum. Seriously. They were so fun. I danced a myself. Didn't care.

While all the festivities were going on, the snow started coming in heavy! We had 7 inches by the time we woke up this morning. All of that on the first day of spring...crazy!

The boys had stayed at my parents house last night (THANKS MOM AND DAD). We took lunch to their house when we went to pick the boys up. I had also packed some clothes so that they could go play in the snow. It sounded like a great idea.....but Maddox got cold fast!

Here are some pics from my parents back yard:

Somebody was ready to go back in.

Somebody else wasn't.

On another note, Cruz sleeps every night with a beautiful green blanket my mom knitted for him. He has grown to love it and snuggles it every night. It is so sweet. The only problem is that it is a full size blanket and he needed something else to take in the car, around the house, etc. So mom made him out of the same yarn a "mini" blankey. As soon as Cruz saw it he dropped everything to hold it. He loves it. He carries it everywhere now. It is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Thanks Ganmommy!!!

That looks like a really fun weekend! I especially like the part about you dancing by yourself. HAHAHA!!! Good for you, girlie! Can't believe you got so much snow. I'm in Indiana and we didn't get any. That's a first!

Very cute pictures! I popped over from a link on NCF's blog. My husband's brothers name is David and his wife is Amy, which makes it a little confusing at Christmas because I'm an Amy also. Then, I noticed your little boy was named Cruz, which has been on our baby name list for years. Don't know why I'm telling you all this! ha! Anyway, cute blog!
