Some of Aiden's friends and family enjoying some pizza I didn't get pictures of the hats that I made (yes I do have some artistic abilities) so here is a some of the girls hats on some of our guest!

Big Green Tractor

Aiden is really into John Deere tractors lately and loves Jason Aldeans song Big Green Tractor. He knows most all the words and loves watching the video on my phone. When we asked what he wanted for his birthday he has told me "a John Deere cup"..... strange kid. OK to the point of these post....
My best friend Beth's husband sells John Deere's for an equipment company here so for Aiden's birthday they gave him a WONDERFUL present of a "play day on the equipment". So after waiting all week Aiden woke Saturday SO excited to go to "Ashleys work and ride the tractors." Here's a preview:

Riding the Bulldozer

"Big Ol Skidder"


So PRECIOUS!!
Off all the large equipment he wanted to ride the fork lift so bad!

Playing on the trackhoe
If you look close you can see Brandon in the trackhoe, he was very jealous of Aiden getting to play on the equipment!

Thank you Beth and Ashley for a wonderful day!

Birthday preview....

I had no idea what to expect when I asked Aiden what kind of party he wanted this year- would it be Toy Story, Elmo, Cars, Mickey, Thomas the Train....
But after asking him multiple times he gave me the same answer everytime...
MICKEY MOUSE!
So as you can tell from the invite- Mickey Mouse it is!
(the invite looks disturded but it was the best editing I could do to get a visual picture-Sorry)

Back to the swing

I am back to work and back to our normal routine so I finally have a chance to upload Christmas pics. I LOVE every minute I get to spend with my little man so I didn't want to take time away from him to blog! SORRY!! We had a great Christmas and New Year. We didnt get too many pics and we didn't get any of just the 3 of us!
My philosophy is- if I'm taking pictures I missing out on something so I let others take the pictures and give them to me. Sorry I know thats not good for blogging but its the truth! All he asked for to everyone was a Gator and puzzles,
So he got his Gator

and puzzles!

AND....

a sleeping bag that he LOVES!

Riding in the snow Christmas morning!

Christmas at Brandons parents

PLAY DOH!!!
