Busy Weekend

We've had so much going on around here lately that I just haven't had time to sit down and post. I'm trying to spit this one out while Allie is down for her 30 minute cat nap :)

First things first...Lucas' team finished first in our division and second overall in the league. We have our first tournament game tomorrow night. I was hoping that we wouldn't be playing tomorrow since it's Allie's birthday but it is what it is. We're hoping to get everything done before the game tomorrow night.

As for Allie tomorrow is her big day. I'm very apprehensive about tomorrow and extremely emotional everytime I think about it. I have a feeling I'm going to be a mess in the morning. We're going to do something tomorrow with just us and cupcakes and then we'll do her party with family on Sunday with her big cake. I have tons to do and really haven't accomplished any of it yet but oh well right.

Our weekend was crazy. We played ball on Friday night and Lucas and Jacob went to my parents to spend a couple of nights. It was a nice relaxing break for a few days. We went shopping on Saturday for Allie's birthday and got that all done while we only had the two younger ones with us. Sunday we went to my dads and spent the night and came back home yesterday.

So for the rest I'll just leave you with our weekend in pictures and hopefully later on I'll be able to sit down and get Allie's birthday post done. Until then I shall think about the last year of my life with my amazing little girl.

Yesterday I put Allie's new carseat in and I still have to look twice when I see her looking at me from back there. I can't believe how big she's gotten.

I told you they were the best of friends. I asked David the other day if when Allie was in her new seat if he thought they would hold hands. I just love the relationship that they've built.
When we got up on Monday morning at my dad's house my mom discovered a homemade bomb in the yard. She thought that some crazy teenagers threw it out the night before at some point. She used to be a cop so she went crazy. When she called the police to make a report they sent everyone in the world out. Firetrucks,police cars and had ambulance waiting at the grocery store up the street. Turns out it was a dry ice bomb....crazy teenagers! I pray my kids don't ever do that sort of thing when they get older.

The kids however absolutely loved everything that was going on. Jacob is obsessed with firetrucks and police men so he had a blast. He and Lucas got to get up in the firetruck and look around and were amazed.

Allie got her first taste of an oreo dessert over the weekend. Yummy!

As you can see she loved it! I love this smile..when I hold the camera up now I get the cheesiest smile in the world.

Oh sweetie! I know it's going to be an emotional day for you tomorrow. Just think of how well you guys did in raising her up over the last year and how far she has came in all the things she has learned to do. She will ALWAYS be your baby and that will never change no matter how old she get's. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow sweetie.

A bomb in the front yard? That is NUTS! I love the last picture! Her car seat is so cute too, ours is just plain brown.

Yay team Lucas! WTG!

I can't believe how big Allie is getting either. When I started reading you, back in Oct. I think, she was just so dang little!

Well, glad the excitement is over and that noone got hurt!

And I love the Oreo smile.

Baseball games are so crazy. Thank goodness my stepson is almost done with his. I'm not a big baseball fan, though.

Take lots of pics of your baby's party!! :)

As far as the bomb...scary!!!!! I'm just glad that everyone was safe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
