Girls Night Out

So I've had two girls night out in less than two weeks! So fun and a super big thank you to Michael for taking care of the kids! Last night I went with Lori, Anna, Becka to see Secondhand Serenade at the Gothic Theater in Denver. We got there right at 7 but there were three other bands that played first. Secondhand Serenade didn't even start playing till 10!!! It was fun and we were able to stand in the balcony and were pretty close. It was super loud and I was beginning to question if I am just too old to do the whole concert thing. But I had so much fun.

I had to blog about Ashton's birthday party first and now that I have, I can talk about Twilight. After Ashton's party I came home and helped Michael get the kids in bed and then headed off to the movies for Girls Night. I went with all Michael's sisters and his mom. It was so fun. I absolutely LOVED the movie. Of course it wasn't as good as the book, but that is usually a given. A few of the actors weren't quite as I pictured them and there is always so much that is left out. Overall I thought it was very well done and I loved that Stephanie Meyer had a cameo appearance.

Party Hard!

Ashton's birthday was so much fun. He wasn't too into opening his presents, but actually did better than I thought he would. He LOVED his cake was was covered by the end. It was nice to have family and friends there to celebrate his special day. Here are some pics from the party.

All of a sudden yesterday Ashton started standing on his own. It was like he knew he was a big boy now!

Asthon of course was more interested in his cards and wrapping paper than some of his gifts.

Once again loving the wrapping paper!

He was very excited about his cake! What a mess!

Birthday Boy!

It's hard to believe my little baby is one today! This last year has gone so fast. Ashton is the sweetest boy I could have ever wished for. He is so happy and brings so much joy and laughter into our house.

His party is tonight so I'll have to post his birthday pics later, but here are some recent ones of him.

Michael decided to go all out for Halloween this year and got tattoos on both arms. He's so crazy sometimes.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween was a blast this year. Syd was a chicken and she was so excited about it. Ashton was a zebra and he was not excited at all about it. Screamed his head off, but then realized it wasn't coming off and decided to be a good little zebra. They were so cute and they got tons and tons of candy.
