Our sweet little boy turned 2 today! How did that happen? I swear I was just bringing him home from the hospital. Drew has stolen my heart from day one and has never let go. I love this little boy to pieces and he just makes me so grateful to be his Mommy. This morning we opened presents and then headed to Toys N' Co so he could pick out a toy. The Melissa and Doug Shopping Cart finally came home with us. He and Allie have been eyeing that cart for over a year, and today was it's day! Then we went to Chick Fil A for lunch. After nap time we headed to the J for some pool time. Then it was off to dinner at Taco Mac. My good friend Andrea brought along some mini-cupcakes from Gigi's to celebrate. It was perfect, and Drew had a blast. Also, since it was his birthday he had control of what we watched on TV, "Lego Movie" and listened on the radio in the car "Everything is Awesome". Like "Everything is Awesome" on repeat, wherever we went, the whole time. It. Was. Awesome. We love you Drewster Rooster!
Tonight was the "South Charlotte Stake Daddy Daughter Dance". Thankfully Maddie has a friend who has "2 Dads" and offered up one of them to go with her to the dance. This Dad use to be my Home Teacher and is a great family friend. In fact, we love their whole blended family. They are amazing! Maddie was so excited to go to the dance, and Steve brought her a little bouquet of flowers, which she LOVED! So thankful for all the wonderful friends that we have here in Charlotte that are always thinking about our little family.
Last Saturday the girls had their first ever dance recital. The day started at 7:30am, and ended at 2:30pm. Long LONG day, but they had fun, and it was a great first experience for performing onstage in front of a large audience. They both did wonderful, so proud of my tiny dancers.
