Happy Birthday to Jude!

This is my little love of my life, I totally call him that, is that weird?!! It is so crazy how amazed I was at how much I could love 2 kids. After you have the first, you think, at least I thought, there is no way I can love a 2nd as much as the 1st. Well, then you have the third. He is so the love of my life, which makes me a bit excited, b/c I was the third child and thought that maybe I was a bit neglected. This guy, not so much. He makes me want to see what our fourth would look like, not care that my house is never picked up, and realize that you do spoil your youngest. He loves and is obsessed with his older siblings and whenever they are not home will walk around Dander, Roe, Go?? My little guy completely content with the two donuts with a candle in it for his cake this morning and his open gym "party" today.

Aqua Glow

so I got a new rug I've had my eye on for awhile...

and decided to brighten up the brownish/purplish kitchen

thanks to Shannon who took me to Liz's and introduced me to the perfect blue I was looking for, (Liz did you know this was the name of your paint color?)

a little more than 24h later, we went to work...

the fam doing the "aqua glow" dance, Xander stated, "I feel like Im starting a new life", he is a complete crack up, what is he talking about.

it so brightended up our kitchen and our lives for the day anyway, we'll see what tomorrow brings, maybe it will inspire me to cook.

Give me 5!

My not so little girl turned 5 today!! It began with a visit this morning from the Zeka girls and a tasty cookie cake, videographed above. Off to a hospital tour, on to McAllisters, per request, to the fire station with her preschool class, to her mighty mights gymnastics class where she finally did her first backbend kickover, and finished off the night at Old Chicago with the Miller gang, followed up by another cookie cake and serenade. We may need to sleep until her 1:00 party tomorrow!

Xander scored his first basket at his last basketball game today, he has been waiting for this, (don't laugh Munsens) Jude must have gotten a little excited too because he proceeded to blow chunks all over him, myself and the floor. Pictured above is the Rockets minus two players, darn. CUTE kids.

I cried, I laughed so hard at this postgame interview.


thanks to Mrs.Pond, I printed these cute invites out for 20cents at target, thanks JESS!
