Today was my Dad’s birthday. We celebrated at my moms house, with breakfast burritos. I busted out my juicer and made fresh squeezed OJ. I am so stuffed!! Happy Birthday Dad, you are the best!!!
This is the first of three costume parties we will be going to this week. I think come Saturday, I will be a little wiped out. I am sure there costumes will be also. Tonight was Pot night with Mimi and Papa. We had stew, cornbread, and pumpkin pie. It was so yummy! What a great start to a fun few days!
Love this sweet picture!!
Today at Preschool we ended Sara’s teaching month with a tea party. The focus was to teach the kids how to host a party, manners, and setting the table. It was the just about the cutest thing you ever saw. The kids did so great. They really got into the whole thing!
All the kids made their own name cards for the table.
The blessing of the food!
All the kids got to bring a special guest to the party!
Thank you Sara for such a fun day!!
Well believe it or not folks, I did not have a theme this year. With all the parties I have been doing, and the business of things, I decided to go easy. The nice part is, that my Micah is all about making plans, so he was of course more then thrilled to plan his own party. So we did pizza (at his favorite place), and the highlight was getting to get a Teenager Mutant Ninja Turtle cake. It was easy, and just what he wanted! Although I enjoy the fuss, it is nice to just be simple.
Today was Micah’s big day. He got a new bike. He has been waiting patiently, the last couple months since his last bike broke. He is in love!
The day Micah was born I was changed forever. You can never quite explain what it feels like to hold you child in your arms for the first time. It is truly amazing! I will never forget looking up at my husband with tears in his eyes, as we just starred at him, with overwhelming joy. My tears actually came later when we were home for the first night. It was late (of course), and I just starred at him, thinking how blessed I was, and grateful to have such a perfect little boy.
It is exciting to see his personality blossom. Daddy told him he could stay up late since it was his birthday. At 10:15pm, I asked him if he was getting tired yet. He said” If I get tired I will just hold my eyes open so I won’t fall asleep”. I cracked up, as he spread his eyes lids open with his fingers as far as they could go. I guess I should not worry, he has it under control!
Thank you for being such a sweet boy! Thanks for being such a big help to Mom and Dad. Gracie and Noah, are so grateful to have you as their big brother. I love that you like to make plans, and be on the go like your Momma. I love that you try your best, and then try even harder after that. You have lots of discipline, and it will serve you well in the future! I hope you have a great birthday! Have lots of fun this year being 5!!
Mom and Dad
This is the first of three visits we have planned to the pumpkin patch this year. I love taking pictures of the kids there. The pumpkins make such a great background. Grace, and Micah, are playing so quietly with their new pumpkins. Yeah!!
