Jillian’s Birthday

Since Jillian’s birthday fell on {what was supposed to be} a big game day for Arkansas, we celebrated her birthday last weekend with a party with a few close friends. Saturday, her actual birthday, we just celebrated with our families at our house.

Jillian woke-up to a room full of 24 pink balloons!

We got dressed and the four of us headed out for birthday donuts.  The birthday girl in her “Birthday Girl” shirt!


At lunchtime, my parents, Josh’s parents and my sister and Brandon came over for Jillian’s birthday lunch. I made chili and everyone had the choice of chili, chili dogs or Frito chili pies. It’s was the perfect pre-game, rainy-day meal!

Josh and I went to the game while the kids napped and Josh’s parents stayed with them. We left the game at the beginning of the 3rd quarter. I don’t think I have ever left a game that early…ever, but the game was over at that point. We made it home before they woke-up. We spent the evening just hanging out at home. We let the birthday girl choose what she wanted to eat and Josh picked it up for us. It was a perfect, quiet night at home with our kiddos.

For the next 18 days we have a 3 year old and a 2 year old. Thhen it’s birthday time again at our house!!!
