Finn's Second Birthday

Finn turned two last week and there was a lot of celebrating. On his actual birthday during the week, I took off of work and the three of us went to the zoo. I'll get to posting pics of that day soon. But these are pics from his party. I honestly didn't hold on to my camera for long because of tending to the birthday boy and hanging with friends and family, but squeezed in a few pics.

We decided to do his birthday celebration at the park. I also chose this park as I was sure we'd be able to see planes taking off...and you know Finn and airplanes. Although it was forecasted to be a cold day (for Florida) it warmed up when the sun came out and was beautiful. My dad was so smart and brought a football and gave Finn his own kickball which was used mightily. 

The only one thing I was sure to plan was to have bubbles present. The kid loves bubbles if you haven't heard already. We were walking through party city and Finn found a bubble section that has a package of colorful bubble wands. We learned Finn's bubble obsession greatly contains the obsession with colorful and multitudes of bubble wands.

I don't normally treat myself to buying adorable little clothes off of Etsy...just because it can be pricey, but I caved and bought this awesome shirt for the boy. And I figured he can wear it the whole time he's two.

Thankfully I was able to get that cheese puff stain out. Rob says every party should have cheese puffs. Without fail you buy them for the kids, but the adults plates were full of the things too. :))

I didn't get pics of it, but you kinda see what's going down in the background of this pic. An epic four-square game went down. Even my mom joined in at one point. All this happening while Finn was peacefully blowing bubbles.

Finn has been obsessed with the birthday song for quite some time now. So while we recorded this it was quite comical all the things that went awry.

First a candle blew out and then (much to my below blurry excitement) a very loud jet took off and flew right in the middle of the song...Finn doesn't look too thrilled here as he was exhausted but whenever he watches back on this video he often says "plane!" when you hear it. :))

A blue lollipop for the birthday boy. (who's currently in love with the color blue)

A quick family pic...Titi Leah was working hard for Finn's smile behind the camera.

Not too long after the boy just cuddled up with me and fell asleep. It was sweet and absolutely precious to get to hold my baby boy while watching another epic four square tournament. Overall, it was a lovely day with family and dear friends.

Happy second birthday baby boy! We love you so much!

Christmas 2014

I can't believe I'm already blogging about Christmas on the 26th. I'm officially impressed. Everyone is asleep and I just went through the photos so I'm keeping with the momentum to share with you all.

First of all, merry belated Christmas! I hope you all had a great day and enjoyed it with loved ones. Our day was very good, Finn was a handful (he's in a bit of a tantrum/addicted-to-mommy phase - isn't there a name for that? Oh yeah, the terrible two's, lol) but it was still a great day.

So without further ado, twenty-nine of my favorite photos from the day...

Although Finn liked many of his gifts, he still didn't really get it this year, the unwrapping. Some of the new stuff would catch his eye, then he'd run off to another room, lol.

Giving Elmo kisses...

A new microphone...and bonus, it lights up...the best part for this little boy...

Checking where it came from...

Playing with his little bus-book...thank you Target $1 bin. :)))))

A superhero toy camera like his cousin's...he was happy when he opened this one. :))

On to Nana's house...

One day this kid will be more willing to smile in day. Still love the pic though...

Waiting for family to arrive...

"Look Finn! A squirrel!"



I love this photo...Greg, Jen, Bella, Chrissy and Junior arrived...Junior picked Finn right up much to his delight.

Opening gifts! A vacuum for the boy who always wants me to vacuum!

These two...<3

I gave this sweet girl a painting she had requested...she was so excited. I'm even thinking about offering these square canvas paintings in my shop soon. I'm slightly in love with the gold.


Greg handing the ball to Finn...

Blocking Bella for the touchdown!

So many people I didn't get pics of...I never plan really well, but here's Junior going to pick Finn up again. Kids just looooooove picking up babies. :)))

Run, run, run!

This last pic cracks me up. It's from this morning. Papa and Grandmars gave Finn this awesome track for cars and here's Rob putting it together. It's seriously a favorite task of his to assemble things. He's one of those that lights up whenever we bring something home from Ikea. ;)

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I can't believe it's going to be 2015. It sounds so futuristic. Love to you all!

Off to paint!

Haven't had much time to post lately (I promise I'll get back with it soon) but I wanted to take time to share some of my latest favorite pics from my phone.

^^ Finn cuddling with Uncle Greg for like 10 minutes on Thanksgiving.

^^ Thanksgiving with most of my fam.

^^ More Thanksgiving fun.

^^ Me and the sweet babe while we looked for Christmas trees.

^^ Elf watching goodness happening.

^^ Finn fascinated to be walking in grass with his bare feet at Papa and Grandmar's house. (our house only has weedy goodness in our yard)

^^ Lovin on Papa.

^^ Simple joys, silly boy.

^^ This silly monkey.

^^ Our tree this year, we're doing good keeping this thing watered! No crispy tree this year (like most years).

^^ Homemade rice krispy treat goodness.

^^ Our dear friend, Matt, completing 25 miles in honor of Larsen to support her boy by getting sponsors.

^^ My most favorite picture, Larsen's son Aidric and Finn holding hands while around the lake. This melts me.

Hoping you all are well and enjoying the season and staying warm!
