Our weekend kicked off a little early because Layton and I were able to enjoy part of Austin's Field Day with him and his class. He had SO much fun. They started on our big football field and Austin Selph was in heaven. He had a ball and I'm pretty sure he loved every second of his day.
Layton even got to participate in a little obstacle course. =)
I signed the big boys out early Friday afternoon and then we officially kicked off our weekend.
Friday night we got take-out before starting on Pumpkin Carving 2016!! The big boys were in pjs and it was dark and a little late but we did it! And it was possibly our WILDEST pumpkin carving to date, and we've had some wild ones, but the Selph Family jack-o-lantern is officially complete, in place, and ready to welcome trick-or-treaters tonight! Phew. =)
Garrison designed our face this year and it turned out super cool. He wanted something spooky so he drew the face on a sheet of paper for me and then I put it on the pumpkin.
The boys were all helpful cleaning out the pumpkin...plus totally crazy and wound up...
Layton even helped a little this year. And Austin actually used his hands once or twice!!
They had so much fun they almost lost their minds with excitement. Next year we have to move the pumpkin carving party inside. I'm convinced that being outside just adds to the crazy. Ha. (Garrison still remains the most helpful cleaning out the pumpkin. =))
They usually get a little bored during the actual carving, but again I'm thinking that has a lot to do with being outside and having space and toys at their disposable. They do always check in though and become more and more watchful as the jack-o-lantern becomes complete. =)
Here you have it! The Selph Family Jack-O-Lantern 2016!!
It turned out spooky and perfect and we all survived our wildest pumpkin carving yet! Even though we had some stressful moments, I love this tradition and making these memories with my boys.
Saturday morning after soccer games for the big boys it was time to go and celebrate Piper's 1st Birthday!!
Anna went with Piper's nursery colors and everything turned out precious. As soon as I walked in I was welcomed by sweetness and all things Baby Girl. Everything was perfect.
This sweet girl was the cutest ever!!!! We had so much fun celebrating with her!
The proud parents fed everyone chili and hot dogs before letting Piper open her presents and then doing cake. It was a full morning for the birthday girl!
This picture is so sweet to me. Piper was a little tired and possibly overwhelmed with attention and a huge mob singing Happy Birthday to her (hahaha), but her cake and candle really got her attention.
She wasn't sure what to think about the cake but finally decided she wasn't too impressed. Ha! We know she was mainly just tired though because this girl rarely turns down a little dessert! =)
We had so much fun partying and celebrating with our most favorite 1 year old!! I know she enjoyed her party and will especially enjoy all her new goodies. She is one loved Baby Girl! (And here's a little flashback to the day she was born.=))
Saturday afternoon the boys watched football and played while I tried to clean the house a little, and then it was time for my girls night! We had such a great time and I am so thankful we managed to squeeze in a last minute date! Talking, laughing, sharing, and eating with my besties is the best!!
Then on yesterday we celebrated Papa's birthday! We went out to lunch after church and enjoyed a delicious meal together before spending the rest of the afternoon at my parents' house.
Papa even spent part of his birthday playing football with the big boys. =)
We wrapped up our Sunday watching the Falcons beat the Packers!! Wooohooo!!! The whole fam celebrated the victory with cheering, high-fiving, jumping around, and exhaling. Hahaha.
We had a GREAT weekend and loved all of our fun family time and sweet memories made! Now we are all super excited about today... fun at school, supper with family at Granna's and Papa's, and then TRICK-OR-TREAT time!!
