What a difference a year makes. One year ago to day this mama sat sipping her coffee and fighting back tears because her boy was in Guatemala and not here at home for his birthday. Last year friends rallied around me and we celebrated the day anyways. This year though, I have poured three cups of coffee and have had maybe one sip since 6:30 this morning. I am rushing around putting the finishing touches on the "ball" themed party that will take place with all of Max's friends later this morning..then tomorrow we do it all again with family. How sweet is that. Two parties for our little two year old. Stay tuned for photos of all the mayhem.
