For those of you who don't already know, I am a "little" fan of the children's book author, Mo Willems. Well since Ethan has been hearing these books for some time now, we decided to throw him a pigeon-themed 2nd birthday! It was so much fun putting it together and Ethan really understood this year that it was a special occasion. We had a great turn out for the party and everyone seemed to enjoy awesome cupcakes Anthony made. I was very proud of his design!
We rounded out Ethan's Birthday week with a trip to Charlotte to visit Anthony's family for Thanksgiving. It was so nice to get to celebrate Ethan's Birthday with them as well. We had a very nice week in NC, really enjoying the warm weather and perfect break from the frigid start to MN winter! Anthony and I were able to have a lunch date with Amber and Alyssa at their school one day and I got to read to Alyssa's Kindergarten class. (Mo Willems books of course!) We were also very fortunate to get to celebrate Anthony's sister Ashly's 30th Birthday while were there. We went to see the movie "Due Date" and then to a dueling piano bar called, "Howl at the Moon." What an awesome night! We prepared a great Thanksgiving dinner for the family on Thursday. We were joined by Anthony's dad, Vernon, his Aunt Dwyla and Uncle David, Ashly's good friend Ashley, and of course Ashly, Tony, Amber, Alyssa and Anthony's mom DeLene.
What a great week!
