Birthdays and Bye-byes


Rushton’s best little buddy out here (almost since the week we moved in) was a cute little boy named Jack.  These two little boys ADORED each other – they would squeal in excitement when they saw each other and would even hug so hard they’d usually knock each other over. (Boys…)  We played almost every week!  And then one day, a week after Jack’s birthday party, Jack moved away. 🙁  I don’t know who was more sad about the move – me or Rushton.  Jack’s mom has been my best buddy out here, too, and his dad a good friend of Jake’s.  Moving is so two-faced – on the one side, it’s great to have a steady job, but on the other side, it’s soooo hard to say goodbye!  We miss their family so much!

Tawny did such a cute job with the birthday party!  It was Toy Story themed, so a definite hit with the little boys.  If there’s one thing Rushton loves as much as Cars, it’s Toy Story.  Rush was almost TOO helpful with opening presents…  And this is the best/only picture of them that I got.  (I really need to make more of an effort to take good pictures!  Put that one on the list for New Year’s Resolutions.)

How cute are these cupcakes?!
