I'm behind, I just skipped over our entire summer. Maybe one day I'll go back and update it (probably not). If I wait a few more months, my header will be back in season!
I just uploaded some pictures I took today and figured I might as well post them. Alyssa started preschool today. She has been wanting to go since the older kids went back to school in July.
So, she was super excited that today finally came.
This little boy wasn't so excited. He lost his best friend and was quite upset about it.
Fortunately, it is easy to get out of the house with only 2 kids, so we went a few places and he was easily cheered up.
I've put off moving Benjamin out of his crib as long as I could. But, Isaac is getting too big for his current bed and it's time to move him into the crib. So, I pretty much had no choice. Benjy is obviously loving his new found freedom and the fact that he can get up when he wants. I'm not loving the fact that he doesn't stay in bed anymore. Once (if ever) he learns to stay in bed and sleeps good in it, he gets to move in with the big boys. Surprisingly, Aaron and Collin are super excited to have him join them.
Today was Benjamin's 2nd birthday. Since he and Alyssa love to watch Jake and the Neverland Pirates, the kids decided he should have a pirate cake. I have been watching and reading all kinds of tutorials online to learn how to make and decorate cakes. I also found some really great ideas for a pirate cake.
It seemed like it was a race to get the presents opened as fast as possible. Fortunately, he had many helpers.
We love you Boo Boo and are so glad you are a part of our family! Happy Birthday.
And this cute little guy, just sat and enjoyed the action (and enjoyed playing with the leftovers).
