A Very Happy Birthday to a Very Special Boy!

I'm a week late on this, but what is new?   We celebrated Wyatt's THIRD birthday last week.  I just don't even know how we went from this ....

to this .....

to this in just three years! 

We started celebrating Wyatt on Thursday by taking cupcakes to his school.  As soon as I walked in the door, all the kids started talking about cupcake time!  It was adorable.

They all sang to him.  It was PJ day, by the way -- a last minute fundraiser for the Oklahoma victims. 

Then enjoyed their cupcakes.

His teacher snapped a quick picture of the two of us and then we bounced!

We came home to do one of our favorite afternoon activities .... watering our plants.

And we also LOVE to "make it rain down" 

The next morning was his actual birthday.  We let him open his gift before we left for work that morning since we were trying to head out of town early for the lake that afternoon.

He knew exactly what he was getting, but was still THRILLED to get his "cooter" for his "happy birthday"

He was probably even more excited for his special birthday breakfast -- a chocolate donut complete with 3 candles!

That afternoon, we came home and he had a big box of gifts from Lolly and Pops! 

And when we got to the lake, Meme had made him a tractor cake and more gifts!!! 

What a lucky little dude!  We cannot wait to celebrate him once again this weekend with family and friends!

May Pinterest Challenge

I love Pinterest, mostly for recipes but also sometimes for a craft inspiration or a fun project to do with Wyatt or various things.  I'll admit though that I'm guilty of just pinning things and never actually following through with the idea.  So here is my May challenge .... I'll actually follow-through on one pin per week! 

As an aside, I need to mug on something for a minute here.  Pinterest is a great spot for posting, sharing, and saving recipes ... not Facebook.  Can people PLEASE stop 'sharing' recipes on FB?  I've had to hide so many people for offenses like that I may as well just quit reading it alltogether.  Whew! Feels good to get that out there.

So.  My pins for the month in no particular order.

1) Potato Dill Frittata .... I pinned this because my dill is just growing like a weed and I need to figure out ways to use it up!  This may be dinner one night because I just don't see Mr. Wyatt accepting this as a substitute for his Saturday pancakes :)

2) Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cupcakes.  I'll probably sub the chocolate chips for blueberries and see if they work for W's weekday breakfasts.


3) This outfit, or similar.  I'm always needing outfit inspiration! 


4) A rainy day activity for W

5) Another dinner idea.  I told you most of my pins revolve around food :)  This looks fairly healthy and easy though so I think I'll try it!
