Opening Presents

Opening presents this evening, all the sudden I had one thrust into my lap.

"I don't want this medical kit, Mom. You can give it to Baby Boy."

Ouch. Honesty. That hurts.

Pumpkin Bowling

Watch out VanDam twins. There's a new man in town

I could not have asked for a nicer day for Kayden's Birthday party. It was perfect.

We went to Orchard Hills farm, and this was probably the most fun I have had at any of his birthday parties (okay, there have only been four, but still). The farm had enough to do that we weren't bored, the kids were all at the age where they self entertained and got along really well, Kayden was spoiled yet again with tons of fun toys to play with, great pumpkin donuts and cider, we did not have to wait for the hayride....

Here are a few of my favorites from today. I posted almost all of them on facebook for those that attended and would like to see your kiddos in action.

Once we got home, Kayden took out his big wheel and was going up the driveway, then bakcwards on the way down. That is, until he topped end to end because he got going too fast.

"It would be much better to go up the driveway, then back down forward and not backwards."

Good idea.

You remember the picture from when I was younger, right?
Just to refresh your memory, here it is again for those of you that missed this nugget the first time around:

Needless to say, the boys were not knocking down the doors.

My Friday nights constisted of sitting next to my cassette player, pressing play, rewind, rewind again, rewind a little more.


That first verse, sung in full falsetto, from New Kids on the Block still brings me back to that very minute.

Oh, Jordan. You had me at "I'll be Loving You Forever."

There are other songs that I love to reminisce to as well.

Boys to Men End of the Road still lends itself to sweaty palms waiting to be asked to dance at the church 8th grade mixer. See said picture above for answer.

Bob Seger We've Got Tonight when my best friend Gabby had to go back to Mexico.

The Cure Pictures of You, Depeche Mode Somebody, or Hootie and the Blowfish Only Lonely on the Inside from the mixer tape Josh sent to scan the 3,000 mile gap between us.

anything by Journey.

However, none capture it quite like NKOTB, as it was the first. Writing "I love Joey" on the whiteboard with my sixth grade friends. Good times.

So, while I was watching the Rachel Ray show today and there were mid-thirty somethings still swooning after them, I kind of get it. However, more than one audience member was kissing their Donnie Barbie Doll.

And that, blogger nation, disturbes me.

Which one is which?

Lately, I have been told multiple times that my boys look exactly alike. Can you tell which one is which?

When did this kid get so BIG?

I will post more when I get a chance, but these are a few of my favorites from the session with Katie. The bottom one cracks me up every time I look at it.

Hello from MYR

Complete random order, a few pix thus far:

300 alligators, 2 tigers, monkeys, snakes, and reptiles galore. Kayden's favorite part?

The Sponge Bob ice cream bar.

So windy. Hard to look cute with a mouth full of sand

Watch out, people. Lightening may strike.

Kayden in crocks. Ugh.

On the beach today

When we arrived, our hotel was not ready we went to the beach anyway, thus the umbrella to shield Mr. Fairskin from the sun

Off we go!

The landing was quite rough, leading Kayden to state we went KONK upon arrival.


First Biter Buscuit. Yummy!

After the alligator farm.

Just like his daddy.
