A local photographer was holding a Valentine's Mini Session special, which was a heck of a deal, so I thought I would take Ramsay in to have some pictures taken of him since grandparents like current pictures. She did an amazing job and there were so many good shots of him. Of course, he's pretty photogenic which helps. :o}

Well, I have yet to post any pictures from Christmas, and why is that? Because I have no working computer at home. I haven't even been able to look at the pictures that I took at Christmas time because my computer is a goner. Hopefully I'll get able to purchase a new one soon and get updates on here but until then, bare with me!

Back in June I purchased tickets to do lunch with Santa on the train in Monticello. It's unbelieveable how quickly they sell out! I'm glad I was able to get tickets and we were able to go. Ramsay didn't really get to nap that day so he was a bit cranky but for the most part did a great job. Before heading to Monticello we stopped at Lou Taylor Photography and got his picture taken with Santa since they were handing out free CD's with the picture on it. Ramsay was all for saying hi to Santa and giving him a high five but he didn't want to sit on his lap or stand very close to him.
After our train ride was over we headed over to Peoria and had dinner at the restaurant in Bass Pro Shop and then went through the Festival of Lights. The wait was so long that we were in line for an hour and a half before ready the park. By the time we got in Ramsay had fallen asleep so he missed the entire thing. It was pretty neat though to see all the lights they had!

I'm mad at myself for not starting a journal right away with Ramsay but at least I'm not to far behind. It will be fun later on in life to look back at the things he first said when he began talking. We find ourselves laughting a lot at most things he says. First word: Bubble..........that was interesting! lol Daddy Mama, Mommy Nanny Pawpaw Tete (Auntie Brielle) Emma (cousin) Grandma PP "What is sat" (What is that) "Yay, ok!" "Oh church, there it is!"

I decided to make some little treats for Ramsay to take to daycare on Halloween so I made mini cupcakes and put buttercream icing on them and topped them with a marshmellow looking ghost. Super easy and pretty cute!
I've already done a posting about Ramsay's birthday party with pictures but thought I would do a seperate posting of just party planning and decorations! The invitations for Ramsay's party was my absolute favorite part of the party. They were so unique and I knew everyone would love them. I found them on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/people/kcjones032) and the designer was great to work with. I couldn't have picked a better invitation!

Well, the day finally arrived. My baby turned the big 2! Yesterday was a great day from start to finish but am exhausting one! Ramsay woke up to a floor full of balloons for the big day and then his big birthday party was held at our church's indoor playground. It was so great having a bunch of kids running around and having fun. The theme for the party was Cat in the Hat and it was so much fun! I didn't get a really good picture of the birthday boy in his birthday shirt since he was to busy running around playing! It was so much fun though and a great time. Time to relax for a bit before I ever think about his 3rd birthday! lol Good thing I have an entire year.
