Brendan is 4!!!

Today is Brendan's 4th birthday! He decided instead of cake he wanted to have worms in the mud so that was what I made for him. I was happy he decided on this dessert because it is very quick and easy and we have had way too much cake around here lately! Happy Birthday sweet boy!

Ethan is 2!

For the last week or two anytime we would ask Ethan what he wanted for his birthday he would say cake so here is a picture of him with his dinosaur cake. He is so funny he sang the happy birthday song right along with us only pausing half way through to blow out one of his candles. He didn't blow out the second one until the end of the song though.

Our lawn is covered in these pretty little flowers Jacob calls weeds. Last night he told the kids that for every one they picked they could have 1 penny. Doesn't sound like much but I have already paid out 11 dollars and you can't see much difference in the yellow hue on our lawn (and I've been checking their bags too, they're not cheating) that is just how many we have.

Karissa with her bunny.


Karissa's New Bunny


Karissa's friend gave her her bunny. Karissa is so happy. She has wanted another bunny since her old one ran away right after we moved into this house.

So Sweet

I was going through pictures on my phone and found this one and thought I would share it with you. Jacob had just come home from work and Karissa was sick that day so this is how I found them.

Happy Birthday Aleigha

Aleigha turned 6 today! She has been really wanting a princess cake so I decided to give it a try. At first she wanted one with a pink dress (her favorite color since she was little). Then she changed her mind and wanted a yellow one. Last week she decided her favorite colors are brown and blue so finally she made up her mind and wanted one with a brown dress with blue on it. So this is what I came up with.

I wish I hadn't done the blue swirls but by the time I decided that it was too late. Oh well. It is also a little lopsided but Aleigha loves it and that is what counts.

We are not having her party until later in the month which will be combined with her 2 little brothers birthdays that way we don't have to take three trips to Grants Pass this month so their grandparents can be there.

Happy Birthday Aleigha!
