Happy Birthday!!!

My little Man Turned 3 on Dec 5th. I cant believe how fast he is growing up! I was inspired by his excitement, to create 2 birthday themed layout. both feature my sweet furry handmade tear bears.

I never have time to scrapbook my own pictures,
but I will be sure to recreate this page for tyler!

Here is a link to the boy page

A link to the girl pages

and here is my THREE year old on his birthday getting his new piggy bank

and at his Party.

Tearing into his Geo Trax Air plane!

Ever heard of geo Trax? If you have a little boy, HE WILL LOVE IT! Tyler got the train system last year and now the airplane this year, and its still his Favorite toy! I recomend it for any little boy! WARNING... Thos toy WILL take up a whole room!

Schnepf Farms

Saturday we spent a HOT day at Schnepf farms. We had lots of fun, despite the fact that we were all sweaty in October. Tyler LOVES trains, so the mini train ride was the highlight of his day.

Perfect pumpkin! Tyler made sure we knew the others were to heavy, but his was not.

On the Train he screamed ALL ABOARD for most of the ride. SOOO CUTE!

can we do it again?


We had such a fun day!

Friendship is Priceless. Though Tyler has lots of Amazing little friends, he and his Pal Logan are truly "PALS" When Tyler sees Logan, he jumps up and down and chants, "LOGAN,LOGAN,LOGAN" These 2 are WILD together, but I think that is why the love each other so, BOYS and TROUBLE just go together. Crystal we are in for some interesting times! Here they are in a Calm moment (yet still on the stairs, UGH) eating an energy booster. (like they need it)
