2/25/2010 - SIX!

Our first baby boy is six today! He had a wonderful birthday - baked French toast for breakfast, pizza and bowling, Cocoa Puffs for supper, lots of gifts (and he loved them all!), and a Creme de Menthe cake he helped to make.
He informed me that this is his favorite way to make six, and thought I should document it. :) When he asks to have a picture taken, I'm more than happy to oblige!

2/24/2010 - Last Day of 5

This was Carson's last day of being 5. Doesn't every little kid want to be 5? I remember DYING to be 5. 5 was so grown up. Like gonna-be-driving-soon grown up. Carson was no different. 4 was just what had to be endured before he could be 5. :) But now? Now he's thrilled to be turning 6!

Cooking With Boys

2/23/2010 - Cooking With Boys

I'd like to just let you draw your own conclusion with this picture and title, but I'm an honest person, so I'll explain. Today was Pancake Day, and I was too lazy to take the kids to IHOP, but thought at least we'd make pancakes for supper. So Aidan and Jack grabbed a chair and dragged it up to the counter to help. Aidan begged to crack the eggs into the batter, but I had to go into some long explanation about how "Mommy has to do it because we don't like to eat egg shells, and when you crack eggs sometimes some shell gets into the food, or you crack the egg holding it too tight, or - " SPLAT. Or you drop it on the floor, I guess. Nice. So next time, Aidan's cracking the eggs. ;)

2/22/2010 - Wish

I found this the other day with some other papers of Elisa's. Apparently I'm still not forgiven for not giving her a sister! ;) When we told her that we were having a boy when I was pregnant with Jackson, she said, "Well, when I grow up, I'm going to have a baby, and I'll have a girl!".
Go ahead and try, Honey. ;)

The 5 Dollar, 5 Year, 3 Boy Coat

2/21/2010 - The 5 Dollar, 5 Year, 3 Boy Coat

Don't you love getting an awesome deal, and then it just gets awesomer? (Yes, that's a word. I use it all the time.) So 5 years ago at The Children's Place, this coat was originally $40, on clearance for $4.99. (Pathetic that I remember that.) And Carson wore it for 2 years, because he doesn't grow much. Come to think of it, he could probably still wear it if he really wanted to. Then Aidan got it, and now it's Jackson's. Talk about getting your money's worth. Another great bonus: We get compliments on it all the time. I like to have my boys be a little stylish. Every now and then when they let me tell them what to wear.
