Today, we officially celebrated our Boy's 5th birthday at Monkey Joe's - a giant building filled with inflatable, jumpy, sliding things...a kids dream & a parents nightmare! No, actually it was a dream for me! This was the first time in the 5 years that I've been doing birthday parties that I completely outsourced everything! The location, the pizza, the cake (more on that later), the invitations (sorta), even the balloons & goody bags! In the end, all I had to do was write one, big check! And, let me tell you it was the best money I've spent in a long time! Plus, as an added bonus the kids had a fantastic time and my house stayed clean!!
Before I get to the weeks, exciting events, I need to start with this Boy's 5th birthday breakfast! We left earlier this week for DC (there were some festivities we wanted to participate in...) and our precious, sweet friends, the Walter's agreed to keep our babies for the 2 days we were to be gone. We were to leave NC that a.m. for DC, but not before we had some Birthday Pancakes! He was a real trooper - he didn't mind that his Mom & Dad were headed off on the 5th anniversary of his arrival into our world...As a matter of fact, that morning, I was trying to cuddle with him, whisper sweet birthday wishes to him, when he turned to me & not so sweetly said..."I'm ready for y'all to go!"
Talk about cool...he was all about this limousine - "Mom, there are lots a drinks inside there & you can watch TV!" and then the best part of all - regarding my sister with four, count `em four kids... "Aunt Carolynneeds to get one of these!"
Yesterday was a pretty exciting day around here...after 18 long monthsour church is now ready for its inhabitants! While it's not completely finished...it's pretty darn close. I'm actually very proud of my husband! Many, many times he came home tired & frustrated with the whole process...but look at it now! A bright, open place ready for some renewed energy and faith! Can I get an "Amen?"
I recently got an iPhone...can I tell you how much I love this little piece of technology? It's especially iRonic since I'm not sure iF there could be two less technical savvy folks than me & the husband...needless to say - we are officially addicted - alright I am...but he would be too if I would let him have iT every now & then!
I love the camera feature! I've never understoond peoples obsession with their camera phones...until now! Beware - you may start receiving random e.mails from me with pictures...
