December Birthdays

Tyler was pretty excited to enter into a Man vs. Grill competition that took place on his birthday. The giant burger consisted of 4 lb. meat, 9 eggs, 1/2 lb. bacon, 1/2 lb. cheese, avacado, 1/2 lb. salsa and tomato- all with fries on the side.
The kids and I had a great time cheering him!

Tyler and his buddy Kevin at after the end of the 45 minute time limit. Tyler was definitely in the top 3, and although several other gentleman had their dinner come back up he kept it down. No one was able to finish, but Ty is pretty proud of his shirt and complimentary barf bucket.

Sydney's birthday was next. It is an even year for her so she had a friend party with Harry Potter as the theme.

I didn't think to take group pics until the end when we had already started cleaning up, but I must say that I surprised myself with how well the decorations and events turned out for how little time and effort I had to put into it. Ty did an awesome job with a head table and 4 house tables, it was a party to remember.

I love this picture! Both of these young ladies are getting so big! I love that they are still close friends even as they get older. We played Quiditch on our "brooms" and had glow-in-the-dark skating- the kids loved it and didn't want to go when the party was ending.

I can't believe my baby girl is already 10! She is such a good girl and we are so blessed to have her in our family. She is so compassionate and loving toward others, she is a good example for me in so many ways. She is so bright and down to Earth, I couldn't imagine a better daughter.
