Happy Birthday to Hudson!!!





Happy 2nd Birthday, Hudson!! Yesterday was a great day. Hudson turned two years old and we had a fun little birthday party for him. My cousin Jake and his girls came over to our house to help us celebrate. As you can see from the pictures we pretty much had a "Cars" birthday, not really on purpose, but of course a lot of the presents he received were from Cars and I couldn't help myself but make a Lightning McQueen cake for him. PS. I don't know why I get myself into certain situations, but of course I thought I could construct this cake out of no where, and at about 4:30, my sister Marci called to see what I was doing and I about had a nervous breakdown because not only did it take me all day to make it, but things were not working out and I basically just made it as I went. All in all it turned out a lot better than I thought it was going to be. Hudson loved it and kept pointing at it and saying "car cake". He was so excited and of course he was spoiled rotten, like usual. His grandma and grandpa Mosher gave him a cars rug to play with which he absolutely loved. You can see him in his pajamas laying on it and stalling to go to bed. He kept saying "bed" and then pointing and acting like he was going to sleep on it. If it was only that easy!! I would definitely put that on his bed if it meant he would actually go to bed and like it! Anyway, it was such a fun day and I am just so grateful for this little boy in my life. He is truly one of my best friends and I don't know what I would do without him! We love you, Hudson!!
