Yesterday we celebrated another birthday, Erin turned ONE.Â Did I just write that?Â I can’t believe she’s a year old already.Â I know everyone says that, but it’s so true.Â Where did the year go?Â It’s a big blur really, full of many changes, milestones and fun.
The cousins were a big part of the celebration, helping get the party decorations ready.Â We had a Happy Birthday banner made by Becca and birthday crowns by Abbey a day in advance.Â They were so excited and eager to help.Â They both helped me the day of with the party food; waffles, sausage, bacon, muffins and fruit salad.Â I surprised the kids with a pinata, which Ian has always wanted and Jay was the “tree” since we did it at night and didn’t have light in the yard.Â It was a great farewellÂ for the cousins sinceÂ it was their last night before they headed home to Arizona.Â WeÂ had a great time and we will miss you all Stephens’ Family!!
Over the holiday, these 2 cuties showed up and they decided we were a good family to have.Â So we now have two new outdoor kittens, butterball and mittens.
The celebration will continue today with my family at a triple birthday party for my Mom, my niece and Erin.Â Two cakes are always more fun than one!
