Birthday Fun

We've had a busy summer.  We got about a week and a half of down time after Taylor was born, and then July hit, and WHEW!  We've been on the go ever since.  But it's been fun.  It's always better, for us, to keep the kiddos busy.  And I'd say we've done a good job of that.

So.  We can always tell that summer is winding down by the slew of birthdays.  Jeremy's birthday is toward the beginning of August, our niece, Sonoma and Sierra's birthdays {just one day apart} are toward the middle/end, then Jeremy's brother's.  Then his dad's.  It's a busy birthday season!

Last weekend we celebrated Sissy's birthday.  My MIL spent Friday night {we just love having her sleep over!}, and Saturday night she and Gramps came by for cake and ice cream and a few presents.  My parents were out of town celebrating another granddaughter's birthday.
Birthday1

Grandma and Grandpa got Sierra a pretty special birthday present.  One that will definitely aid in a memorable first hunting season for our girl.

Birthday2

And then Sunday we had a big family birthday party.  We are still in the middle of plans for our outside landscaping.  There was a lot of excavation that took place to build, move our mobile home, tear out our yard to improve our driveway, and so on.  So we did our partyin' inside the house this year.  But next year we look forward to a beautiful lawn, and lots of gatherings outside!

Birthday3

One of our favorite aunts, Nat.  She and Kam have a special bond.

Birthday4

Sierra's special, special friend was able to come.  She and her family are heading out to Kansas for 3 1/2 months, and we are going to miss them terribly.  Sierra loved the beautiful headband and nail polish that Kate picked out especially for her.

Birthday5

Apparently someone else also loved the headband. 
Kam LOVES to accessorize.

Birthday6

And that's where the headband stayed for the rest of the afternoon.  Luckily Nana and Gramps were able to find another one when they were out shopping the next day.  So, no worries.  Sierra's headband is back where it belongs.

Birthday7

And, oh yeah, I can't resist posting a pic of this little muffin.  She slept the whole party away so peacefully.  She's changing so much!!!
