A Weekend of Celebrating

My mom is retired! We had a party celebrating her retirement Friday night. Friends, family and former co-workers were invited to their house and we celebrated in their basement. 

The kids were all set up in the movie room and had a great time. They all did really well together. These two little cuties belong to my cousin and Reese was so sweet with them. When we were leaving the party I told the kids we needed our own Sydney (the cutie on the right) and Reese was all for it and Hayes said NO!

There are not many Tech fans in our family so these guys have to stick together.

My dad had some BBQ catered. (I didn't get too many pictures so these will all have to do.)

And of course it wouldn't be a party with out some cake! It was a fun night celebrating my mom's role as an educator for 33 1/2 years.

Saturday, we got to celebrate the first birthday of my cousin's daughter. They don't actually live in town but wanted to be in town to have a family party. We are so glad they did because that meant we got to visit with this little cutie.

So many great gifts and so many sweet smiles. It was surreal to celebrate this birthday because it reminded me so much of when Reese turned one. I can't believe how fast time has gone by because I remember that day like it was yesterday!

They asked my mom to make them these cute matching shirts that said Team Hadley on them. Hadley, her parents, grandparents, and god-mother all had these sweet shirts on.

They also had fun Photo Booth props that my kids thought were great!

One-derful Papa!

Sweet girl and her cake. She wasn't quite sure about it at first but once she got a taste she was all in.

Cake two days in a row?! Yes, please!

What a fun weekend of celebrating wonderful parts of life with family and friends!

I'm so glad we were able to come home to celebrate with your mom and Hadley's first birthday was a success in part thanks to you! We love all the pictures you took. It's hard to imagine her at Reese's age, even though she's at the age that I always think of Reese!
