On Thursday, we headed north to snowy Missouri to celebrate Smith’s birthday with the Shull clan. This time, Lovie and Papa Jay came too :). It had been three years since they visited the farm and my in-laws thought they were long over due (my in-laws make no bones about the fact that they enjoy my parents more than us :)). Click here to see the pictures from my parents’ last trip three years ago (I was 8 weeks pregnant, throwing up every hour and had much shorter hair…praise the Lord things are different now!).
I will admit…we were there 3 whole days and I did a horrible job taking a variety of pictures. Here is one of Smith and me before dinner on Friday night.
Smith took a few dips in Nanny’s sink
At his birthday party on Saturday night at Pizza By Stout (of course)
Andrew had just taught her how to blow the wrapper off of a straw…she’s laughing because…
…it was stuck on Smith’s head 🙂
Smith has started giving the best sloppy kisses. What’s so sweet is that Andrew was ready to snap our picture and I kept saying “smile Smith” but instead he kissed me. I love this boy!
Red velvet cupcakes for his party
The best I could get of Sylvia (15 months) and Smith (12 months)
Trying to open presents
PawPaw and Nanny bought Smith this Fropper. We all “fropped”.
Uncle Dave and Aunt Vicki got Smith a Tow Mater push car, so then Brode went and got their version and all 4 kids rode around.
Kisses from Brode
We had the best time. Why didn’t I take more pictures? Thank you Nanny and PawPaw for hosting all 6 of us! Thank you Lovie and Papa Jay for driving 6 hours for yet another party for Smith! Thank you Dave and Vicki for coming to the party! And thank you Jon, G, Brode and Sylvia for letting us celebrate in your home! We love you guys!
