"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do.
God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know,
and holds us responsible to act." Prov 24:12

Sasha's Second Party... A Grand Musical Celebration!

For Sasha's actual birthday party with friends, we had a local children's music program come to our house and put on a musical celebration for him. He LOVED it. He probably loves music just about as much as he loves cars and trucks, so he was quite happy on this day. He had a Cars themed musical party with a lot of friends (he loves having people around). What more could he ask for.

What an unbelievably special day it was for not only him but for his mama and daddy as well. We both fought hard to keep back the tears as we looked around during his Happy Birthday song and saw over 40 wonderful friends celebrating Sasha the way he should be. The way any child should be. To think back to where he was just a year ago and then to think about that moment in time, with all those people celebrating him... it was truly special. It was truly a miracle. What a blessed moment. Thank you God for bringing Sasha Hunt James Toomey into our lives.

His Cars cake. I have made a lot of cakes the last few years but this one has been one of my favorites. It turned out better than I had hoped (unlike Brooks' recent train cake)... that is always a nice feeling.

The Party Spread

The party...

where Sasha was surrounded by the love of our friends.

We were really having a good time together. What a beautiful day it was!

Enjoying his party...

I LOVE this picture!

Making music with his mama and his friends.

Sasha adores his daddy, absolutely adores him. Everyone who sees the two of them together always remarks about the way Sasha's eyes light up when he is with his daddy.

Opening gifts that evening...

Enjoying his new car that plays "Funky Town" over... and over... and over again. Thanks Stephanie!

Checking out his new truck.

Still checking out his new truck.

Someone can't contain their excitement!

Sasha's BIG moment... too bad he was a little worn out at this point. As I stated above, this was an unbelievably amazing moment for Jeremy and I and we both had to hold back our tears. What a blessed moment in time it was.

A small glimpse into Sasha's special day...

We LOVE you Sasha!!! Happy 2nd Birthday!
