Happy Birthday James

Happy Birthday to you! James blowing out the candle on his cake.

The Lego man cake finished and ready for a little boy to eat.

James loves puzzles and so Mackenzie gave him 3 different Toy Story ones.

My kids loved this movie and so when I saw it was going to be released right before his birthday it was a perfect present.

So November 6, my dear sweet boy turned 7. Where in the world did the time go. So his one request for a cake was a Lego man. I kept thinking how in the world am I going to pull that one off. When I told big James about my idea he laughed. So while his cake was not perfect I had a ton of fun making it and proving the cake James LOVED. I am glad we were able to have Chrissy and Jacob come join us as well as our family friends. Thanks Stephanie. Any how I am so blessed to have a sweet caring boy who loves his mom and family. He is a true blessing to our lives. We love you James.

Here is what we have been up to.

I went back to school this semester and so it has been very challenging. Trying to figure out how to get the time I need to study and then helping kids with their homework. I also still have to find time to cook, clean, and all other house hold duties. I love being a mom and a wife but sometimes I feel very unappreciated. But not the purpose of this post. I have been very slacking in the blogging department and so maybe I will be a little better about it. But don't hold your breath.

The kids all picked their Halloween costumes and so I had to bust out the ideas in a week. I think they all turned out cute and one day hopefully I will take a picture of James and I in ours. We went as Mr. and Mrs. potato head. It was a lot of fun and I think they turned out pretty cute. But the kids went as a ballerina, Spaghetti and Meatballs, and a bubble bath. What a bunch of cutie pies. I really do love my kids and life and look forward to the end of classes in 2 weeks. At least till they start again. Ugh.
