It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I figure if I don't start somewhere I'll never get back on track with my blog so here it goes.  

Since Hudson's birthday we've celebrated 
  • Landree's 6th birthday
  • A birthday trip for both kids to Disney
  • Halloween
  • Thanksgiving in Texas
  • Landree's 1st and 2nd loose tooth (they are both still hanging in there)
  • Hudson being about 95% potty trained
  • A room update/painting Hudson's furniture
  • And lots of fun Christmas activities!  
I did Santa pictures again this year, and this year we did them at my friend/photog partner's house.  This is the first year I haven't decorated in October so when November 1st rolled around and I wasn't decorated I couldn't stand it any longer-so I've been decorated since. Hudson wasn't happy about pictures we were the first session and it was freezing outside so the outside pictures were a bust, but I love how warm and friendly he was with our buddy Santa.  Here are a few of my favorites.  I hope to catch up soon, but just in case...Merry Christmas!

Happy Birthday Hudson!

Hudson turned the big 3 on Sunday and we had a little party to celebrate him on Saturday morning with a few friends.  It was the EASIEST party I’ve ever thrown.  I bought straight up store plates, napkins, water bottles, balloons, juice boxes, a few table decorations, brought a buzz light year from home, add Krispy Kreme hats and donuts and called it a party!  I highly recommend this-the easiest, stress free party EVER!  I stress over the little details being perfect and the perfect cupcakes and party favors and on and on about everything and spend tons of money, and I guarantee I’m the only one that notices!  This year we are taking a trip for the kids birthdays so we were going low key and it was so fun!  After donuts with friends we went to Target for Hudson to pick out his birthday prize (he picked a Imaginex Toy Story toy of course :) and the VanHamme’s came over and played.  I think Hudson felt pretty special and that’s what mattered most to us!  We love you Hudson Roberts Gray!  Happy 3rd Birthday!

We love you Hudson!  Happy 3rd Birthday!  I couldn’t have ever imagined life with a little boy, but I can truly say that I wouldn’t trade it for the world!  God has blessed us so by choosing us to be your family, and we couldn’t love you more!  We look forward to many more birthdays together!  Happy Birthday!
