Birthday!

It's birthday time around here . Within the next two weeks, three of us will celebrate our special day. Jamie's birthday is today, and since he was in Asia for 2 weeks (I'm so envious right now!), we had an easy time getting ready for it.

The two oldest boys made his cake...a mint chocolate chip icecream cake...with oreos, nuts, hot fudge, and icecream. Yummmm!

I don't know about you, but I LOVE having the kids work in the kitchen!



And they were more than willing to clean up their mess. They're so thoughtful.


So, jet lagged and all, he hung in there for his celebration.
Each of the kids picked out a $5.00 gift card to a favorite snack/restaurant place so they can go by themselves with Daddy.


As they sat with him to open the card, Jamie noticed how big they were getting.
(notice how Jamie is fighting Laura for the envelope? She thought it was great fun to keep snatching it from him).


They're getting bigger...

and bigger...


and bigger...


and bigger...


and..."hurry up and get off" bigger!
I think I resent that!

Cake time! It was delicious!
Jamie is "directing" our Happy Birthday song!

Happy Birthday, Honey!

I'm envious of both the Asia trip and that amazing cake! I'm determined to go to an Asian country one day, but poor hubby is so sick of traveling I'll have to drag him.
