who knew turning three could be so much fun!!

jacob turned three this past weekend. my, how time flies!! his birthday was friday, march 11, so we had a little birthday cake and let him open one of his presents that evening. then we had a birthday party with the rest of our family on saturday afternoon.

he is always wanting to use daddy's golf clubs so he was thrilled to have one of his own, just his size

with a little coaching from daddy to keep his eye on the ball, he was very proud to see he hit it very well
after that he had to do it all on his own
on saturday, the rest of the family came over to help celebrate jacob turning 3 years old.  he couldn't get enough of opening presents that is for sure.  he was very fun to watch!

jacob is always stealing everyone's keys, so grandma rose got him his very own set

we saved the big present for last.
i think the expression on his face revealed the excitement in his heart perfectly! you can watch it for yourself here.

after fun on the tractor settled down, we headed back inside for cake, ice cream and a little more birthday fun.

"i'm gonna shot you"
who knew turning three could be so much fun!!

it was a happy birthday weekend

amanda's birthday was last week and it seemed that we celebrated all weekend.  we had a small family party on her actual birthday which was thursday.  then, she had friday off of school so i took her birthday shopping so she could pick out what she would like. it was also her year to have a birthday party with friends and she decided that she wanted to spend the night in a hotel with a few of her friends.  so we continued the celebration on sunday night at the nearby sleep inn.

my baby girl is 12! :(
grandma still thinks she is a princess!

four very tired girls at breakfast after a very long night laughing, talking and playing games.  i do not think that they went to sleep at all until the sun started to come up.
i think she enjoyed turning 12!
it was a happy birthday weekend!
