Mark's 6th birthday party

We celebrated Mark's 6th birthday on the 1st with a Superman/Batman party at a local park.  I think the kids had a blast and it was perfect weather :)

Alyssah and I dressed like batman and did our nails black too :)

My sweet fam!  Love them :)

Mark with his buddy, Cameron and cousin, Aiden

After his party, he had his 1st baseball tryouts!

I brought some of the decorations home and put them up for his actual birthday.

all of his awesome gifts!  Thanks to everyone who came!

birthday morning :)

I took treats to school to celebrate with his classmates during lunch!

I was so happy I got to spend a little time with him at school on his birthday.  It was special!  I love being a Mommy :)

Here's to another year of watching you grow, my love!

Mark's 6 yr. pics and A's 3 yr pics

**Picture overload ahead**

My sweet friend Matthew took these pictures for me back in January!  I posted some of these on facebook of A already but have been saving some to share with Mark's around his birthday (that's tomorrow!).
I know every Mother thinks their children are the most beautiful things they have ever seen, but mine really are ;)  I love them both so much.  Life is definitely better b/c of them.  Thankful for my hubby and the Daddy he is to my babies too!  

Alyssah isn't into pictures like my Marky so I have to have props with her.  Getting sweet posed pictures just don't work for her.  I'll take what I can get.  It makes the memory more memorable, right?!

She loves these Rapunzel shoes she got for Christmas!

The many faces of  Lyssah Lou!

beautiful little lady

The only one we could get of them both.  SO sweet.   

And then in pure Mark fashion, he has a blast and is the best at posing! ;)

I saw a picture of a little girl holding her favorite stuffed animal on Pinterest and thought it would be cute for Alyssah to do, but she wouldn't do it.  Mark picked out one that is special to me, which made me love this even more.  My Maw-Maw gave him this husky a few years ago when she went on one of her Alaskan cruises.  He loves it, and I love that I have this sweet memory forever.  He still talks about his GG from time to time.  I love how God gives you special moments like that when your heart misses someone that has gone home to be with Him.  Precious!

Sweetest little boy!

And I got in on the action a little!  Daddy wasn't with us so he didn't get any.  We are having family pictures done at the end of the month, and I'm so excited!  Can't wait to share with yall.

We have a busy week planned but it's going to be great!  Hope yours is lovely.  Be back soon with Mark's birthday post :)
