I love how laid back the weekends are and I especially love when they are filled with family and friends and parties and get-togethers or just staying home in comfy clothes relaxing. This weekend was full of both. Three days of friends and family and staying around the house relaxing in comfy clothes and eating fun food.
We had Nicole's 2nd birthday here with our closest friends and family and I can't express how blessed I feel that we have these people in our lives and I know Josh feels the same way, too. Josh ended up forgetting (cough cough) about the date of the party and ended up having to work that morning so it was a little stressful with school and life and kids and getting everything for the party. But I did it and we had such a great time! We have the best family and friends anyone could ask for. Many of our closest friends are more like family to us now and we love them all to pieces and they all absolutely adore and love Nicole too :)
Nicole's older biological brother came, and Erin, Amy, Stefany, Laura, and Josh's mom and dad and the guys all stayed well after everyone else left and I think that was my favorite part of the party :) Just relaxing with my girls on the couch in the living room talking and laughing while the kids all played together. Nicole had a great time with everyone and as usual made her rounds to everyone so they all had a chance to hold and snuggle her. I feel so blessed to have Nicole in our lives. She is such a funny and dramatic and stubborn and silly and sweet and lovable and amazing little girl and we love her with all of our hearts.
Happy 2nd Birthday, Nicole! We love you!
