Belated...


A VERY important event occurred that I have yet to document. Our sweet husband & father turned 26!!! I can't believe how quickly time flies by. I am so proud to be Bryce's wife. He is such a good man. He works hard. He puts us first. He makes us laugh. He is oh-so handsome. He is my best friend & I am so lucky to have him. Every night I pray that I can do at least one thing the next day that would make me worthy to be his wife, but that scale will just never be balanced.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY! Here's to another wonderful year together!

This was Luke's birthday card to his Daddy:





For Bryce's gift from my parents they gave him a visa gift card for dinner & a movie dates & then, of course, free babysitting. They came over the Saturday before his birthday to watch Luke while we went & saw Harry Potter & went to dinner & a couple errands. Here is a picture of us before our first date after the little man was born.


And here is a picture of the excited grandparents who are about to babysit for the first time!


Bryce's actual birthday was on Sunday, & his family was out of town, so we celebrated with my family's annual birthday dinner! On each of our birthday's we all get to pick our favorite meal etc. & I think Bryce's will always be my mom's favorite because he always picks Costco pizza, so easy! We also had delicious fresh peaches & yummy salad, & of course for dessert Bryce picked white Costco cake! It was so fun to all be together & he got a lot of very sweet gifts. It was Luke's very first venture out of our house, & of course he wore his "Daddy is my hero outfit."

The next week after Bryce's parents got back home & settled we had a combined birthday party at our house for Bryce & Alex. It was so much fun! We thought it was so thoughtful of everyone to come to us, & Colleen brought & prepared everything! We had delicious steaks, baked potatoes, & yummy fruit & green salads. Then for dessert Bryce got his other favorite lemon mirangue pie! & I was happy because Alex choose chocolate cake for her desert! Can you tell i'm hungry right now? Lol. I love how I am recounting all the food we ate, two weeks later... oh well. Anyway it was a great night full of great food, fun presents & fabulous company. I'm so mad I didn't take any pictures!

I'm sorry to give you the scoop so late, but I just couldn't pass up documenting the birthday of my better half. Love you babe!

Nothing better than Colleen's Lemon Meringue - and of course - Harry Potter! - to celebrate a birthday. Give Bryce a hug from me Jessica.
