Update and a Birthday

Hello loves! I wanted to extend my most heartfelt thanks for all of the well wishes expressed for Carter. He is pretty much back to normal and hopefully will not suffer any permanent residual effects. Connor is still in a cast for another 3 weeks but at least he doesn't need surgery. I'm beyond grateful that the worst is over from that regard. 
So, boy 4, Ethan, had his 12th birthday last week. His party was summer themed, complete with beach balls,  pails, pinwheels and gingham. I really do LOVE a good party set up. So much fun. We did a mexican feast as well, like only the Cook family can.
Aren't these cupcakes amazing? Thanks to Crave Cupcakes Calgary. Shout outs to Tim and Sarah who helped load me up for Ethan's birthday. Those apple cupcakes worked wonders for my colour scheme.
The birthday boy.

Happy 12th Ethan!
