Happy birthday Edward Zane!

Three years ago, Pete and I were blessed with our beautiful son, Edward Zane. It's hard to believe that this little guy is three years old already!

For my little man's birthday, I decided to take the day off so that we could have a fun day as a family! We arrived at the mall about 11 am. so that Edward could do something different and fun. He made a friend for Ty!



He's quite the little charmer... facial expressions and all.


After Edward made a friend and we bough a star wars outfit and lazer sword for Tigger, we were off on another adventure... Edward loves Chucke Cheese so we had to take him. He had a blast. I had someone take our picture... the first came out blurry and the second would have been better if I didn't move and close my eyes :( But oh well. It's all about documenting the memories!

And since Edward loves Happy Meals, I mean the toys that come in the bag, we had to stop at McDonalds for lunch! It makes me happy seeing his happiness.

Cirque Eloize

Hello everyone. Today I have a clean and simple layout to share with you. I had so much fun working with February's SFTIO Risk kit. Just recently, my sisters and I went to see the Cirque Eloize and it was such a great show. They did some cool things! I'm a risk taker, but I don't think I could do the things these performers do... I mean, really. They risk their lives to entertain people like me! But like I said, the show was fantastic and it was worth the money!

Here arer some of the photos up close. Aren't they cool?
