Happy Birthday, Little Man...

So - today is Carter's 3rd birthday, and we had the sweetest little party yesterday...

Lots of books for his library, and love letters for his scrapbook...

Sweet treats...even sweeter family memories...

All day, it felt a little inappropriate to celebrate while the guest of honor is on the other side of the world...

But either way - his life deserves to be celebrated.

So celebrate, we did. 

Soda, people - not wine coolers....

My preschoolers made these rainbows,
and on the clouds, I wrote things that they wanted to say about Carter.

"Ohh Grandma Ann - if you want to drop one of those cookies...that would be just fine...
...we can make it look like an accident..."

We asked everyone to bring a book for Carter's library - look at all the super fun titles!

One Thing I Know For Sure:  We're going to keep on celebrating Carter's life, until Carter is HOME!
