Boston Bash for my TWO year old!!!

My little Boston will be 2 in 3 days!!!!
I can't believe I have a 2 year old :( 

I have been planning his party for a long time and I was so excited to finally get started! 
I spent all day Tuesday making his birthday cake and he definitely took advantage of me being distracted... look at the state of my pantry!! And look at who has their filthy paws all over my coveted Canadian chips! Stinker....

I decided on a Boston Celtics theme... for my basketball loving Boston! (notice the Boston get-up so he matches the whole theme as well haha)

I had basketball decor and real basketballs all over but I wasn't letting him touch anything until the party at 6 that night (Wednesday)... it was a great trial for this guy.

But dad finally got home from work with the balloons which meant the party was so close to starting!!

He LOVED the balloons....

We are still playing this game today... and probably until all the balloons are gone haha. 

Here is the finished product!!! I was pretty proud of this one... I LOVE parties!

It was a big hit with the birthday boy :) We had great grandma and grandpa Hamilton come and grandma Laurel came all the way from St. George too!! We just had burgers, cake and presents but it was so fun to celebrate with family! 

The cake!!

We had everyone sign the basketball with a little birthday message :)

It was really fun to watch Boston start to catch on to the whole idea of presents... made me super excited for Christmas, it will so fun this year!

He got spoiled of course! He loves basketball, cars and boats right now so he got lots of those and just LOVED it! He was so excited to wake up today and play with his new cars :) 

I thought this video of Brian trying to find the buttons on the 2 yr old toy was hilarious lol. 

He also got this awesome table and chair set from Ron and Laurel which was my favorite gift haha, it is so cute and the perfect little kid table! It will be put to good use for sure!!

And I really wish that blogger would let you put up longer movies because Boss was SO CUTE while we were singing to him laughing and smiling, but I can only put a few seconds up so I decided on the candle blowing because that is just funny...

Boss loves cake and ice cream (who doesn't!?!?) but the whole cake situation was much cleaner this year haha. 

The difference a year can make! 

We love this guy and are so proud of him! He is so, so, SO busy and crazy but he is always happy and just such a good boy! Couldn't of thought up a better kid if I tried :) 

Happy Birthday Boston!!

The Grand Opening!!!

We just got back from a fantastic trip to St. George for the grand opening of Ron and Laurel's.....
Pizza Pie Cafe!!!
(Laurel painted this!!)
They have been working SO hard on this restaurant and it is finally done and open! Hooray! 

It is amazing! It really is the nicest Pizza Pie yet! (I'm not biased....) but seriously, it looks so awesome and their opening night doubled any other stores opening! It's all pretty exciting! 

Brent is managing the restaurant until they move to Florida in the fall for school... I know what your thinking... scary!!!! But he is actually a pretty awesome manager, he can work really hard when he wants to hahah. 

They got Boss and Banner cute shirts for the opening! They looked pretty handsome...

So excited to go!!!

They had a family and friends only dinner on Sat so that the staff could practice and then had the actual opening on Monday so we were at the family dinner, the pizza was really yummy! We love pizza pie, and maybe this one tasted the best because it was grandma and grandpas place! 

It was fun to see it all together! We saw bits and pieces here and there but it was really fun to see the final product! They have been crazy busy there, but that is a good problem to have when opening a restaurant I guess :) 

We give it two thumbs up!!! (I guess Boss only thought it was worthy of one lol) But can you see the tables!? I should have taken a picture because they were my fav part! And all the Pizza Pie's are decorated with license plates from all 50 states, but Ron and Laurel put up a few from Alberta too! So  thats an automatic 50 cool points right there! 

We were only there for the weekend and Ron and Laurel was so busy (as you can imagine) but they still made time to play with Boston and we had a really great time!

Not only did we go to the opening but Brian and I got to go to the Air Supply concert Sat night!!! haha

Ron and Laurel got the tickets a long time ago before they knew their opening day, well they were a bit pre-occupied so we got to take the tickets!! We got a babysitter and had a hilariously fun time! We were't sure what to expect... but it was so fun! They guys are like 80 now lol but they can still sing amazing and all the old crazy ladies were a whole other show on their own! It reminded me of what I will be like at a JB or 1D concert when I am in my 70s haha. Great memories were made! 

But we are home now and I have started the dreaded packing! We have sold our house finally :) It is under contract so it could still fall through but as of right now we have to be out by the 23rd! (technically not till the 31st but we have to be out before we go to St. George for Christmas!!) We can NOT find another house haha so we might be homeless for a couple months until one we love comes up, so I will have to try and be patient. But it's pretty exciting! 

The only down side is I can't put up my tree or all my new decorations for Christmas :( boooo. We have to take our stocking to St. George though so I put those up and I finished Banner's yesterday! It's pretty cute...

It snowed here for the first time and Boston LOVED it! He loves to be outside rain or shine....

It didn't make the whole snot situation any better... but that's winter I guess lol

I didn't even tell him to eat the snow... just instinct I guess 

And I thought this was so funny... He would always sit like this in the summer and just hang out on the deck but this snow shoes are so fat the get stuck and fall off haha! No wonder my kids have colds right now...

Banner is like me and likes the warm indoors haha. At least until he is running around with his brother...

This kid is the happiest and most content little dude ever! He is always smiling and I LOVE it!!

The end of this post is pretty random... but check out how this kid fell asleep.. haha. He's pretty awesome. 

Can't wait for Boston's 2nd birthday party and Thanksgiving next week!! Eeee!
