Brody's Last Winter Excursion

Well, we hope that it was his last one for the year because we are all ready for Spring!  At the moment, we are still in the process of settling into our new home.  We moved about 90% of our things, but we still have to go back this weekend to get the last little bit and clean everything up.  Our new house is slowly getting more functional although the boys are going a little crazy because many of their toys and games have not made it here yet.  We also do not have cable set up yet so it is a bit difficult entertaining them all day while caring for a newborn.  We were very thankful last weekend that both boys had fun birthday parties to attend while we anxiously awaited baby Mattox's arrival.  Brody was invited to his old school friend William's party at his house which is in our old neighborhood just a few blocks from our house.  The party was a "snow" party, and his parents had made snow in their front yard for the kids to play in.  I think they all enjoyed playing in the snow one more time, and it was nice that the temperature was not quite so cold this time.

It was so nice for him to see his old friends one more time.  I know he likely will not remember them, but I am glad he had a fun day and made some memories we could preserve for him. He even took home some "snowballs."  The favors were bags with white cotton "snowballs," and Evan thought they were so neat. 
Evan also had a party with his best school and Cub Scout friend, Patrick, on Sunday, but we were not able to attend with him so we have no pictures of that one.  I know leaving this special friend is really going to be hard on Evan, but we hope to be able to get these boys together again soon.  Evan told me he was sad about moving, but he was also excited.  We are so thankful that we got Evan enrolled for school in a great school in our new community that is on a year round schedule, and we got him into the track that we wanted that allows him to stay home until the end of March after his birthday because that track is on break this month.  Now, we hope we can get him signed up for Spring baseball and his new Cub Scout troop to keep him busy.


  1. Fun party! It reminds me of the snowman birthday party we did for Elliott's first birthday. I still have a big bag of the fake snow I bought for that party. I should totally break that out and let the kids play with it soon.

  2. This is a super-fun party idea for all of you! You should totally make snow in your yard for Brody's birthday :)
