Happy Late Birthday...

This is a Happy Late Birthday to MeMe and Papa.  They both had birthdays in the last few weeks, and I forgot to mention it.  We love you both and hope you had great birthdays!
And now, time for our 4 day Christmas Extravaganza!  It's totally crazy but lots of fun.

Party Time

So, like I said, we had Campbell's 3rd birthday party at Pump It Up.  If you've never been, it's one of those inflatables places.  I liked Pump It Up because our party was private.  It was really nice to know that with little kids like Andrew running around, there wouldn't be any strange big kids running them over!  

The party was an absolute blast!  Campbell had this look of pure joy and excitement on his face the entire time.  Even the parents had fun.  David was wringing wet by the end and we were all exhausted.  Mommy and Aunt Jamie decided to race through one of the obstacle courses, but that turned out to be a bad idea.  Mommy was seriously smoking Aunt Jamie, but then about half way through, she came down really hard on her neck and about paralyzed herself.  So we called it a draw, but we know who was winning!  :)

After jumping in two different arenas for about an hour or so, we went into the party room to eat cake and open presents.  Things had gone so well, you knew that something had to happen.  When we told Campbell to come up to blow out his candles, he got a little excited and fell backwards off his seat.  I mean he hit the floor hard!  And of course, everyone was quiet and just watching him have a meltdown.  But he recovered quickly, and we finished up a great party.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures:

Great family pic--if only the birthday boy wasn't too busy having fun to pose.

Here we are singing "Happy Birthday".  I know he looks sad, but that's because he'd just fallen out of his chair.

This smile pretty much sums up the party!

It really was a great time.  I definitely recommend Pump It Up for birthday parties.  They were really helpful and everyone had a great time.  Campbell definitely enjoyed turning 3!

Happy Birthday, Campbell

I can't believe I'm writing this, but my little Campbell is 3 years old today!  He is the most generous, fun, crazy, and wonderful blessing in our life.  He keeps us laughing all day long, and he amazes us with his generosity.  The other day he said that he would share "all my candy with my baby brother."  

We had a great party yesterday at Pump it Up--pictures to follow because there are just too many to sift through right now.  And today we've been playing with our new toys and games.  Tonight we're going to Campbell's favorite restaurant, Five Guys, for dinner.  

Here are some pictures of my sweet boy showing how he's growing so fast--too fast if you ask me!
