Stockton is 2 years old!!! WOW! Time has gone by so fast! He is a very big boy. For his birthday we decorated in CARS - his favorite movie, and had 3 parties for him! Yes, I said 3. It was a birthday marathon. Stockton loved all his parties and wouldn't nap. He was extremely excited and overwhelmed all weekend. We went overboard as far as gifts, decorations, food, and went all around CRAZY! It was so much fun! He got great gifts -- we feel so lucky to have such wonderful family and friends to celebrate with us. Thanks to everyone who came and enjoyed our parties! We will go bigger and better next year! :)

We had cones lining the way to the house.

The above pictures were sent out with Stockton's Birthday Invitations. He is going to be Lightning McQueen for Halloween.
This giant Lightning McQueen hung above our bar.
This is what you see when you first walk in.

We had giant scene's from the movie on several walls in the house. Stockton was thrilled!
Stockton got this great car/chair from our friends Ryan and Tayten. I had fun with it too!
For Stockton's birthday he got a big boy bed. He loves it and feels like such a big boy!! We've yet to try it but I hope he sleeps good in it.

This was a racing game he got from our friends "The Don's". Everyone loved playing it!

I made the above cake - bought the one below.

We Have GRASS!!!

Stockton has had so much fun walking and running on our new grass!!

Paul put a sprinkling system in and grass down in record time! It only took 4 days - and A LOT of work! He had some help from his dad and Ryan...Thanks guys!!

Carvin' Pumpkins!!!

The Gang. Ryan, Tayten, Paul and I.
Finished pumpkins. We felt like children taking this picture.
They turned out so good!!!
Paul: The Joker... Scary!
Emily: Pirate from Pirate's of the Caribbean...ARG!
Tayten: Edward Scissorhands...snip, snip
Ryan: Puppet from Saw... Creepy!
Emily: LightningMcQueen... Kachow!
Paul: Donald Duck... Quack!

Pumpkin Land!!!

Stockton would not hold still. With open spaces, this kid wants to go, go, go!

Ryan and Tayten went with us to Pumpkin Land. It was a lot of fun!

I think Stockton's favorite part was the animals. He reads books about bunnies and calls them "baba's" He is so freakin' cute! I love his little fingers poking through the cage!
Hubs. Love him.
We got laughing so hard taking these photos! I love our cute family. What was so funny is that Stockton was not complying and Ryan was holding his head through the hole! HA! The thing parents do for a picture...

Oh just clowning around...

Stockton moves so fast! He likes to pave the way.
Had to take advantage of this photo opt. Too bad Stockton wasn't looking.
Stockton is defiantly not afraid of heights. He was read to jump off this platform.
Cute friends!
