On our vacation this summer we had a BBQ at my parents house with all my siblings and nieces and nephews. Of course all the kids wanted to play and swing and they usually needed someone to push them. After all of the adults took turns and the kids were still in need of a push, Jerrod got the bright idea of attaching the dogs leash to the two swings so he could sit down while still giving the kids a ride on the swings!!! We were all laughing and although we had to give him points for being inventive, we also decided it was a little white-trash!!!!
Sis just turned 6!! It's been a great year so far, Sis started Kindergarten and got to have a sleepover for her 6th birthday!! It was actually a last minute decision, we were watching our neighbors girls for the night while they were out of town so we invited our other neighbors over and turned it into a sleepover!! The girls played, ate, played some more, opened gifts, and then ate some more and then watched a movie and stayed up giggling until after midnight! Sis had tons of fun and I'm thinking it will be our first and last sleepover!! On her actual birthday at school she brought treats to share with her class, she got to be the VIP and line leader and they sang her happy birthday!! What a wonderful day!!! We sure love you Sis and are so grateful for what a big helper and wonderful example you are!!!
We're way behind and I didn't want to overshadow my angel of a child and his birthday!! It was back in July and he had a fun day, he got the traditional breakfast of a maple bar and chocolate milk, then he got to see his cake (which I totally stole the idea from my wonderfully awesome and creative friend, thanks Chris!!!), after that we went to see a movie at the theater, that may be one of my kids' favorite things to do, then we headed over to the park for pizza and presents and some playing, of course. Finally we headed back home to eat the racing track cupcakes and it was an awesome day!!! He's getting ready to start preschool on Tues and is way excited. JD, we love you tons, you bring peace to our home, you always have a kind word to say, and you are so giving, Happy birthday, we love you tons!!!!
