During the spring we seem to have so many birthday parties to go, but it only makes sense to have all these babies born in the spring. Spring is a time of new life and new growth, so why not celebrate some baby love.
You know I love a good birthday party, and the party we went to this weekend was not only good, but GREAT! A friend from my college days at Texas A&M invited the family to Schulenburg to celebrate her son, Holden's, second birthday.
It was a Monster Party! The kids had fun coloring on a huge monster coloring page, masquerading their smiles behind monster grins, and eating the most amazing monster cake. Even the watermelon was cut into a monster gobbling up strawberries and pineapples.
This little man, Holden, was a total cutie. I have never seen a two year old stay so focused on opening presents, but Holden didn't miss a beat. He ripped open every present and his little expressions showed appreciation for each gift. My favorite was when he pulled a stuffed bear out of the gift bag and gave his new bear the tightest squeeze. I think the whole room went "Awww!" That little bear just found the perfect owner.
I am beyond grateful that my friendships made while at Texas A&M have remained strong throughout the years. Watching our kids grow together makes my heart happy. Here's to many more years of birthday parties and friends!
We had a monstrous time at the party!
Happy Birthday, Holden!
