Happy Birthday Mom! Happy Birthday Peyton!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU. . .

Today is my mom's birthday. She is celebrating by eating Sal's Pizza tonight with my dad and then by cooking us a turkey dinner tomorrow night! Sounds relaxing right?! I decided to share one of my favorite pictures of my mom and I horseback riding in Ireland. I loved those horses. We had such a fun time and it is a great memory. I'm so lucky to have such an amazing mom (especially when she helps me clean and organize my apartment)! Since my mom got a special post w/ lots of pictures on Mother's Day I'm not going to post anymore today. Instead I'm going to post a bunch of my first niece, Peyton, who turns 3 today. I figured since Peyton never gets ANY attention on my blog (haha) I better write her a special post today!

Peyton has 2 birthday parties! She had a friend party and a family party - all on the same day! Lucky girl. Jenn made Peyton a Care Bear cake which was so cute. Peyton loves her "teddy" which is her huge blue Care Bear (see picture below). She had a great time at her parties and loved playing w/ her new toys.

And a look back. . . hard to believe it has been 3 years since Peyton was born. She is the first grandchild on both sides and loved by SO many people. She has most definitely been a blessing to me and my family. I just love looking back at pictures of her from when she was a baby and seeing how she has changed.

Peyton has experienced so many fun things in her first 3 years of life and she is a joy to be around (most of the time). I look forward to doing many more things w/ her. I love when she says to me, "Jodi remember when we went to see the ducks?" (aka the swan boats) Or when she says, "Jodi remember when we were on the jumpolines (aka trampolines) and you bounced me and I feel down." I love that she remembers the fun things we have done together and I look forward to doing so much more.

Here are a few pictures of Peyton and I together. I need to pull out some pictures of me from when I was 3 b/c Peyton looks a lot like me!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PEYTON!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!!

LOVE YOU BOTH AND SO GLAD TWO OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE SHARE SUCH A SPECIAL DAY!
