We had family over for Lincoln's 2nd birthday. He was very excited to have cousins there and everyone interested in him. And apparently I like to throw a party? I mean, it can get stressful, but I love planning it out and having everyone there and not cleaning until everyone leaves. And then I like to clean it all up and put it all away so I have my normal little tidy house again. Adam probably hates it. "Guess what? We're having everyone over AGAIN!"
Here's an actual conversation we had late Sat night- it's hard prepping for a sunday dinner when you get out of church at 4:00!
Me: "Do you want to be my assistant?!" (The false optimism was definitely in my voice.)
Adam: "No, I want to go to sleep."
Me: "Oh, okay."
And that was that.
But Sunday he helped with whatever I asked when he wasn't in meetings. What a gem.

It seems I never cook Mexican, so it was fun for a change!
Estacia, Eric, Michelle, Baby Melora, Mike, Linds, Baby Will, Ollie and Elli

Banana cupcakes with peanut butter frosting.
I just love the hustle and bustle in the background...
Linc was so cute with his cake.
Listening to everyone sing to him...
He seems too little to be two!
And of course we had to relight the candles... a couple of times.
His first taste of frosting...
... then a couple more fingers to taste...
...then both hands... (Ollie's face!!)
the happy birthday boy
What a great day!
