Today is Wildman’s sixth birthday!  We have a big day planned- a lunch date complete with video games with dad, a movie with Yaya, and presents and cake at home.

I love this little man with all my heart!!!  On a cold winter night in a small hospital in Texas back in 2004, he made me a mother.


Ya-Ya’s Birthday Par-tay!

We hosted a family get-together to celebrate my mom’s birthday on Saturday night.  If I ask her her age she tells me that she’s old enough to be my mother.  Really, she’ll be 58 on Tuesday but don’t tell her that I told you that…

I made that awesome hot wing dip I told you about, lemon-blueberry cream pie, chocolate-covered strawberries and mini tacos.  Our guests each brought a dish or two to share.  We had an appetizer extravaganza going on!  A regular heart attack feast!  Yum!

After eating ourselves into a coma we let Ya-ya open her gifts.

The boys especially liked the zebra trunk that J and I gave her…  We told Ya-ya that the boys came with the trunk.  🙂

Happy birthday, Mom!  We love you!


Friday was Cutie Pie’s class celebration for his birthday.  Monday is his actual birthday (and mine) but school will not be in session due to the MLK holiday.

I whipped up these goody bags for Cutie Pie and his classmates.  I found the adorable robot bags in the $1 bin a Target a while ago.  I snatched them up and put them back just for this occasion.  The bags are filled with little bags of Chex party mix, a super bouncy ball and a tub of play dough.

For snack, I brought in one of Cutie Pie’s favorite things- powdered doughnuts and orange juice!

I cannot believe that my baby will be three in a few days!

We’re planning to take him and Wildman to the Magic Kingdom to celebrate.  Stay tuned for pictures from what promises to be a fun weekend!
