Sorry for the delay in posts lately. I have been super ill with my crohns and been out of commission for the last 2 months. Well despite my sickness ( I will give you a full update on my health later), we had a wonderful easter with family. Reid had so much fun with the easter egg hunt. He has an obsession with balls and therefore thought all the lil eggs were balls :) It was so funny. The Lord has been so faithful to us these past couple months and we have been reminded of his greatness with the meaning of Easter. We have been learning lately to take nothing for granted. We are so thankful for life, health, and find great joy in just spending time with our families.

Reid's 1st Birthday: Cardboard Play-yard

I cannot even believe our lil guy is already ONE! This year has been the best year of my life by far. I have never felt healthier when pregnant and nursing him. It has been a year full of blessing. As many of you know I LOVE planning parties. When i saw a similar idea on pinterest, I knew I had to run with it. REID LOOVES playing with boxes. Any kind of boxes. Whenever we get a package in the mail its like christmas for Reid. He will sit and climb inside and out of it. Push it around and think its so fun. I decided to keep with the classic red, kraft and black color scheme. That of which are the colors of a typical package. :) Sean and his dad were the creative minds behind the cardboard planes, trains, rocket and helicopter. It was so fun watching them build these unreal box-mobiles :) My mom and I baked all the desserts. A big task- but oh so fun!
I hope you enjoy the pics. It was a super fun day celebrating Reid's tiny life. He couldnt have a BIGGER personality and we love him oh so much!

Better Late than Never: New Year's EVE

For the past 5 years- we have gone up to Lake Arrowhead for New Year's. It is always a highlight to our year.  Sean and I love being up in the mountains and it is such a treat to stay in my dear friend Lauren's cabin. It is so much fun to be together with all my closest friends from college. This year was unique in that we had 3 lil ones with us. What  a fun tradition that one day these lil guys will know. Here are some pictures of New Year's Eve. It was the year of the sparkle and bright colors. The boys think it's silly that us girls get dressed up.. but we think its fun and will continue to get our sparkle on year after year. :)
