Random Updates and Things.

Another busy week gone! Last weekend we celebrated my 42nd (!!!) birthday. We had quite a bit planned but had to prove our willingness to change plans.

This time it was NOT one of the kids that got sick, but both my parents! They were supposed to come down and visit for a few days. While they were here, Rich and I had planned to go out to dinner, maybe see a movie... but they had horrible colds (that they are just starting to get over) and the trip was just not do-able.

And the weather here was horrible and rainy. And Rich had to work ALL DAY Saturday -- until 7:00 pm! So we had to change plans and then change them again! Sunday, my actual birthday, was pretty fun. We went to IHOP for breakfast (yum!) and then came home to open presents. Josh was happy that I got the Lara Croft Tombraider game for the Wii, and Sam was happy because I got the Disney movie, Pinnochio. Not all my presents were for the boys - I also got Twilight and Pan's Labrynth on BlueRay and a PS3 game called Drakes Fortune: Uncharted (which the boys are not allowed to play). It was good. We had a great time just hanging out, playing, watching movies and then Rich made me dinner! Perfect!

This week I've been busy getting things ready for the boys. Spring Break started this weekend so I had a few things I needed to get done before they were off. On Thursday Sam had his Easter Party. I made cupcakes.

Easter Egg Cupcakes

I'm not really happy with how they came out, but the kids loved them!

Then Thursday evening, Josh had his 2nd grade music performance. He had a speaking part - he was the first one to get up and Welcome the parents. He did great! I have him on video, I just need to figure out how to get it off the camera. We have an old one and are due for an upgrade soon (hint, hint).

2nd Grade Music Performance

The kids sang songs, danced and played musical insturments for the parents. Since I got Josh doing his speaking, I couldn't see him doing the singing and dancing. But I got the important part!

And Friday Josh had a make up baseball game. Last weeks game was cancelled so they played it on Friday. There were no games this weekend. He did really well again! He had 2 great hits, scored twice and "nearly caught the ball!" Instead, his glove was knocked off his hand.

This weekend we've been busy taking care of yard work and getting the garden all sorted. We've not planted anything yet - we're expecting frost this week so we'll do it in a few weeks.

We have lots of big plans for the Spring Break week. Hopefully I'll be able to keep the blog up to date next week!


  1. Sorry your parents weren't able to make it down for your Birthday. I think your cupcakes are very colorful!

    Josh looks very happy in the picture, sounds like it was a great evening.

  2. Hope your parents are feeling better, I think the cupcakes look great, so colorful.

    Maybe that camera will be there by Christmas.

  3. Wow...I sent you that email before I read this post! You are the Cupcake Lady! :o)

    Sounds like a great birthday, too! Maybe your parents will come after the pollen?!?

  4. I'll be over for a cupcake :)

  5. Happy Belated Birthday!!

    Those Easter cupcakes turned out great!
