birthdays always seem to be centered around cake and ice cream, balloons and presents.
for this, casey’s 4th birthday, i decided it was time to be more ‘present’ in his life and spend some quality time being creative. so in honor of that i uploaded these images straight out of the camera. no editing, no extra time spent at the computer. and i love them even though they were shot in our dimly lit basement.
we got messy. we laughed. we got messier. and we have these lovely pictures to remind us of our fun.
the best gift i can give my kiddos, no doubt, is to give less “presents” and to just be more ‘present”.
happy birthday my sweet sweet baby boy! affectionately termed ” the cheese man”.
