Proud mom signing off!
Oh my gosh, that is so wonderful..He is some boy. Congratulations to you both.

Still smiling from yesterday. We gave Ethan a birthday party at a local park, had a person come with some things for the kids to see and touch, a tortise, a turtle, a skink, a trantula, a garter snake and a beautiful black,red and white snake who's mane escapes me,a tadpole,a frog and several other little creatures..All the kids were thrilled..Then it was time for some games and then lunch and then the cake A Star Wars Clone cake he loved, time for presents..When one of the kids has a birthday, I get a little something for the other three so they don't feel left out. I know I'm spoiling them and ya know what? I love it...I pick just right yesterday and my reason for the big grin..The hugs and kisses for their gifts..Cade just yelled he was so happy and surprised, Olivia loved her Snow White doll and Carson was in awe of his puzzle.So I made out like a bandit Ethan has taken it upon himself to help me into and out of the car, carry my purse, so it was easy to snooker him to the car and into it, I asked him please get that blanket for me, when he pulled the blanket down there was a brand new 16 inch bike in his favorite color GREEN, he squelled and said I love it, thank you ma and pa...It brought tears to my eyes to see the smile on his little face...I think his 5th birthday was a smash!!!

You just gave me about 100 smiles, Kades. Thank you. I love hearing about your little ones - because of them, but mostly because of how you light up when you talk about them.

(by the way, I will try to answer your PM tonight as I am taking a break from a cake baking marathon right now and have to get back to it)

The family room floor is a mess. I just gave it a sweeping glance and Tumble has outdone himself. There are 17 toys spread out everywhere and the toy basket is nearly empty. Of course, HE won't be the one putting all the toys back in the basket. He's asleep on the sofa. Probably exhausted from his playing frenzy. How can I not smile?

Katie, how I have needed a Tumble story! And this sure didn't dissapoint.

Reminds me of my Bichon X Joie. When it is toy basket clean up time he hides under the piano bench in waiting until the very last item is put in (thinking I don't know he is there). As soon as the last piece is safely put away and the basket tucked in its corner, I turn my back and wait. Sure enough he pounces, empties and hides, waiting to do it all over again! Ain't they wonderful!

Give the little brat a scratch behind the ears for me will you!

Yesterday was fix-it day at my house. My DH put in a shiny new kitchen faucet and I fixed my running toilet. The best part was that there were no PLUMBER'S BUTT sightings.

GOAMK, you ALWAYS put a smile on my face and a laugh in my belly!

Good job! Can your hubby do my sink next?

We must let the poor man heal before any other home repairs are attempted. As he was laying under the sink he kept getting Charlie Horses in his legs.
