Joe was IN town this week. It was a nice change. He actually got to go to 2 of Aaron's t-ball games! He has helped around the house and with the kids.HOWEVER, it is weird how actually having a husband home disrupts the routine. Dont get me wrong, I LOVE him and was SO glad to have him, and I hope he is home next week too... I actually cooked this week, so that's gotta mean something?!

ANYWAYS, tues-thurs I watched my girlfriends' 3 kids while they were out of town. I totally stressed about Joe being there while I was watching them (cause I thought he would be annoyed) but he was so cool about it... so WHAT A RELIEF! The time flew by as well...

We had a birthday for Nate on Tues. after school. Cherry, Scott and their kids came. Phanelb and Dave and their kids came. CarieAnn & her kids came too. Joe DIDNT come. :( but then we had the extra kids I was watching and even another one of Aaron's friends, so the house was hoppin... too bad in reality, out of the 17 kids there, only 3 (Blake, Max & Owen)were Nate's buddies... but he just knew there was a party goin on and he didnt care that it was for him!

Nate didnt know what to do with the candles on the GHETTO style cake I made him. People still ate it though!


He was traumatized by the Frenchy the Frog puppet that the Farnsworths brought him... although steph, I have since read it to them a million times and Nate LOVES the frenchy... so THANKS HE LOVES IT! (does that count as a thankyou card?) While I am at it, Cherry, thanks for the remote control bubble car... you already know it was a hit with EVERYONE (since I have been having to monitor everyone taking turns playing with it) and Mom, thanks for the bike - he loves thinking he is a big boy riding around w/Aaron & Charity! He obviously didnt care about anything I bought him, because I didn't buy him anything cool - I didnt think he needed anything.

After the little short and sweet party we rushed out the door to Aaron's program (the 1st graders sang songs and stuff for the school and PTA)... then straight to his t-ball game (he was dressed for his game w/cleats and everything for the performance!)... it was a busy day!! Just makes me think that I dont know how i am going to be able to manage more than 1 kid in a sport at a time...
ok, i love this picture because this just so happens to be the pose Joe does whenever he is trying to make fun of sweet or cute things. i can hear it now... "Oh!"

I totally know what you mean about husbands disrupting routines when they are at home. I never seem to get the best of both worlds. My husband is either gone all the time or home all the time.

Anyway, Happy Birthday Nate!!

I find your ghetto cake refreshing! THAT is how I remember birthday cake looking as a kid...not these perfect things from a bakery. I love it when the Mom makes the cake & it always tastes better too.

That said, Honor's birthday is May 22 and you will most likely see a bakery cake at her party. :)

Looks like you guys had a fun party as always:) Loved the cake!

Your hair looks so cute! That's what I wanted when I cut mine off last fall... don't go to great clips- that's all I can say.

The pictures of your kids at the Ranch are so cute, not just cuz they're cute pictures, but your kids are beautiful. Nates blonde hair-- hubba, hubba!

I'm so glad to hear your hubby was in town for once!
It's weird isn't it? They really do get in the way when you aren't used to them being around.

Happy b-day Nate! Love the frenchy the frog story too!
