We're celebrating a BIG BIRTHDAY around here this week.
THIS GUY! My sweet little Jayce is turning 4!
I love this little rascal so SO much! He is my sisters youngest (like 12 YEARS younger than her twins) and he is the joy of everyone. SUCH a sweet little boy. SO smart (he could recognize point out and tell you every letter of the alphabet, correctly at 18 months and he can do math now at 4), so cute, so funny. I had the privelage of watching him the first year of his life while my sister worked. He is my little buddy. And for whatever reason, he pretty much thinks I'm the cats meow. So, I'll let him keep thinking it. His birthday falls at workshop time (true story, my sister had him and 2 days later was BACK at workshop working, she's amazing) so his birthday has tended to get a bit overlooked. So this year, we decided to make a big to do about it. We all decided to go and see:
People of the internet, you, my peeps, I implore you to go and see this little gem of a movie! It was soooooo cute, and so sweet, and funny, and it even made me cry a little! What a treat! You will NOT be sorry.
Dane 4, Brooklyn 4 , Jayce 4 the birthday boy, Maggie almost 3
These four rugrats (oops Morgan is missing and Dane was mad at something) were born within 18 months of eachother. Well fine, Dane and Jayce are 2 weeks apart, Brooklyn was March, Morgan was August and Maggie came the next July. Maggie likes to think she's ONE of them too. This was a BIG night for Maggie, since it was her very FIRST movie theatre experience. PLUS, it was late, the movie didn't start until 7:00. But, she was a trooper and she did a really good job. I was proud of her. Unfortunately, she didn't get to bed until 9:30 and then woke up at 5, FIVE A.M. saying I needed to clean her ear out, then fill her sippy, then tuck her in, then WHATEVER. Needless to say, she is TIRED today for school. None the less, FUN was had last night.
Here is our crazy gang. I'm looking especially fat, which is not so cool. Lana is looking especially modelesque. Nicely done girl. And Adam, well apparently eyes being seen wasn't on his agenda. Just missing my parents, one brother and one sister (who did come later). Wish I would have taken a picture of us IN the theatre. We took up an ENTIRE super sized row all the way across. We were in the giant theatre. It was pretty dang cool. And Jayce felt so special that all of us came to see the movie with him. All in all it was a perfect evening, and the perfect way to celebrate my little buddies big day.
So, in summary......Jayce is turning 4, We celebrated together...we saw Toy Story 3, IT ROCKED! The end!
In other news......I have another tragic admission to make. I survived fathers day and all the goodies around me, even while my Mom fell to the whiles of the pie. I was strong. Then, that night, at midnight, I fell. And I fell to the stupidest thing EVER! A mini butterfinger. HOW STUPID IS THAT? So there, now you know. I faltered! It was short lived. I am so totally back on, and haven't fallen again. But dammit, what a drag! However, I have now discovered something quite delicious! Sugar free Russel Stover coconut chocolate thingys. Best tasting sugar free chocolate I've ever had. They're really helping me through. Just thought you should know.
Movies and mayhem,
