This week, my little boy will turn 2 years old. We celebrated this weekend with family and friends on Saturday. We chose a Mickey Mouse theme this year. Chris and Uncle Josh decorated the house with balloons. Aunt Emily helped decorate cupcakes. Boom Ma and Boom Pa Powell, Grammie and Grandpa Michel, Oma Hensley, and Jarod, Briana, and Shawn all came over to help us celebrate. Ledger started off a little overwhelmed but eventually he loosened up and had a great time. He got a lot of presents, but his favorite of the day came from Jarod and Briana -- a toy lawnmower. After cake and presents, we took the party into the front yard where Ledger mowed and chased bubbles! The party was a success and we love that we were able to celebrate with our family and close friends!
I would just like to put a quick personal note at the end of this blog. I had a truly amazing weekend from start to finish. BoomMa and BoomPa Powell came early to help us work on the fence project, which I am so happy to report is FINISHED! I had Friday off and got to wake up early to watch the wedding of Prince William and Catherine. And I cried. On Saturday, we got some good garage sale deals. We went out to eat at some of my favorite places -- Carlos O'Kellys and Scheme Pizza. Ledger was all smiles because the weather was great and he got to spend a lot of time outdoors with his family. On Sunday, I got to go see a girlie movie with my mom and sister (which hasn't happened in a long time) while Josh and Chris caught a different movie. And then, after a very relaxing Sunday afternoon, we got the news that Osama Bin Laden had been killed by American Sepecial Forces. It was just a great weekend. Thank you to all of our friends and family who helped make this weekend one to remember.
