Happy Birthday Dallin

Seven years ago today at 1:30 in the afternoon, after 16 hours of labor, a little baby boy weighing 6 lbs 4 oz. was born into my world and changed it forever!  Boy am I happy about that change.  Except for one little thing.  My husband corrupted his mind and turned him into a Gator fan.  Imagine my horror when he told me he wanted to have a Gator football birthday party.  I almost died making his birthday invitation.

And I think making the cake took years off my life.

Thank you to everyone that came, for all the gifts, and for just being there for Dallin on his special day!  We love you all.

Happy Birthday, Dallin!!!!! Thanks for inviting us to your party. I personally thought that it was the prettiest cake I had ever seen. Almost brought tears to my eyes!

GO NOLES!!! Just had to say that! :) Anyhow, you did a great job decorating the cake, Katheryn! Dallin looks so cute with his front teeth missing. Love the picture on his invitation. Looks like everyone had fun!

Happy Birthday to Dallin and Kylia. My eyes hurt just reading your blog. It reminded me of all the pain I suffered when making Jonathan his afghan!

Who are those two cute little boys that are as skinny-minnie as Dallin? Are they twins?

Happy birthday Dallin! Seriously, awesome job on the cake. I bet it was crazy-tasty. Seems like Bobby-Wobby's house is the place to party. Dallin sure is loved. Let's not forget to mention how awesome his parents are!!

I forgot to mention that any sins before he turns 8 are on the head of his parents (Nathan in this case). You still have time to show him the light before he turns 8!! :) You know I could really care less about FSU...but I did go to school there too!!
