a litte bit of Birthday!

Ace of Cakes, I am not. Martha Stewart, not a chance. Mommy who wants to do it all.....BINGO! Here are a few things I've been working on in order to prepare for the FIRST birthday of my favorite little man. The cake is a rough draft. I actually messed it up when I was baking it because I had to take it out before it was finished to pick Claire up from school. Thanks for the idea on the cake pan Em! The invite was supposed to be store bought and hand written. However, as I was filling out the 10th one, I realized I have a problem. I would rather go without much needed sleep than send out handwritten invitations. I realize there is absolutely nothing wrong with handwritten invites and I have nothing against anyone who sends them. In fact, I envy you! I think I just have some OCD issues that a few years of therapy should take care of.

A little bit of FUN!

Yesterday Brian had to work later than usual so in order to get through the day Grandma Connie and I took the kids to the park. We had a great time and got some great pics of my little cuties. We went and had pizza afterwards. It was nice to spend some quality time with my mother-in-law. We got spoiled over the summer when she was out of school and VERY available!

a little bit of school

Today was Claire's 3rd day of school. I don't know who was looking forward to it or her! She goes to school at the best place on the planet. Every teacher who works there loves each child as if they were her own! I can't wait to see what fun things they do this year. They have already made play dough, a puzzle with her hand print, a painting and a few other little crafts that are decorating the fridge! I love her two new teachers and she is so excited to be in class with Drew this year. If you don't know Drew's situation you can go to my other blog and see why we all decided that he doesn't have to go back to his "new school" and gets to go back to his "old school" with Claire. He went today for the first time this year and it took a while to get him calmed down. The teachers said that Claire was very helpful and tried her best to comfort him. I am serious when I say they are like an old married couple! I'm so glad they are together and even more glad that they are at the best preschool in the whole world!
