Dino*mite Party

Nathan is 4! It's hard to believe that our "baby" is 4-years-old already. He had been talking about a dinosaur cake that he saw one day at WalMart for the 10 months leading up to his birthday, so we hosted a dinosaur party this past weekend.

Nathan thoroughly enjoyed his dinosaur cake and remained at the table eating frosting long after all of his friends had finished their slices.

Always underestimating how busy I will be, I decided to make or embellish all of the decorations myself. Will I ever learn? Probably not. These dinosaurs are from a cute digital scrapbooking kit I found online.

The 50 cent balloon chandelier decoration rocks! Oh, and it is still up, just in case you were wondering. Ryan's birthday is Monday so that's my "excuse" for not taking the balloons down just yet.

Goodie bags! Again, using the digital scrapbooking kit I quickly made up these personalized panels to decorate the plain bags.

We have about 150 more pictures from Nathan's birthday and I will be sure to post more soon...just as soon as I finish studying photosynthesis and have a chance to edit them all in Photoshop.

I Do Exist!

When it snowed last month (yes, I'm a month behind on my blog posts) I made a point of getting in a picture. It's proof that I'm really still here. I think that I may need to buy one of those children's digital cameras so I can teach the boys to take pictures. Ryan isn't around often enough and I have no idea if there is a timer on my camera. Also, I will not be handing my heavy Canon DSLR over to the boys any time soon. So rare is it that I'm in a photo with the boys that I have scheduled a professional photo session for the three of us at the end of March while Ryan is away. It's my mother's day gift to myself!

First Snow

The boys LOVED playing in the snow!!! Ian was especially thrilled when he realized he could eat as much clean snow as he wanted and we didn't yell at him. Nathan enjoyed throwing snow at all of us more than anything else. It's a good thing he's short and his aim isn't so great.

We're still here

I promise to post some fun things this weekend! We have video of the boys playing in the snow and pictures from recent events. Things are crazy, but I have over 100% in my biology class right now and I guess that's a good thing. My children are still healthy, mostly happy and the house...well, that's another story.
