This beautiful woman turned 30 on Friday and we had the best time celebrating her! She’s such an inspiration to me and probably the biggest encouragement and cheerleader in my life, I just love her so much. It’s no secret that I’m particularly excited about Abbie becoming a big sister because of my relationship with my big sister growing up. Siblings are just the best. Especially this one. She gets all the prizes. Literally… mom and dad had to make up awards for me just to balance out the award wall because she would win everything. True story. Enough pity… HAPPY BIRTHDAY LU!!! I mean it when I say I feel like the luckiest person in the world to be able to say Yup, she’s my sister! I LOVE YOU!!!
We celebrated at the most magical restaurant… isn’t their patio just dreamy? If my patio looked like this, THEN I would be happy ;)
^^Her little buns ;) ^^
^^He be so handsooooommmmmeee! And hehe Uncle Ray :) He’s handsome too^^
^^I’m married to that guy! It’s okay to be jealous^^
^^Abbie discovering the wonderful world of snapchat^^
^^this face! yeee! I love her so^^
^^Auntie Cindy doing amazing purse tricks^^ Abbie was a mess right before we headed out… we’ve been working on transitioning her to one nap and I’m still not sure if she’s quite ready for it but she’s been putting in a darn good effort! Anyways, I was fully expecting to do the 10 minute shift, walk around outside deal for this entire meal but we have the best family that kept this Little as happy as a clam till the late hours when we packed up and left. So, thank you everyone!!! You guys are the best! I’m seriously still in awe that she made it through the evening!
And these are some of my favorite pictures of these two heheh
And then these two… their relationship is just so precious.
AND THEN! we headed home to have the most delicious and beautiful cake and champagne cocktails
Someone forgot to bring the baby jammies so into Papi’s t-shirt and Grammy’s socks she goes! And she’s all ready for the Christmas pageant…
^^Belly was there too and he was the best dog :) HE TURNS THREE TODAY!!!! And is significantly more mellow than when we moved here a year ago! I just love my boy :)
AND THEN!!! we surprised Taylor with a campout in the backyard! She wanted to go camping so bad for her birthday but I couldn’t go very far what with baby not telling me an exact date of departure so naturally the next best option was the backyard which really does have just as much wildlife as anywhere else ;) It was SO FUN! Well, I had fun.
^^I don’t think she’s fallen asleep like this since she was a baby baby… Poor sleepy girl was kept up way past her bedtime and then decided 5:30 was an excellent time to wake up :) She’s just the dearest thing
Happy birthday Lu lu lu!!! We sure do love you and are so happy you were born!!!
