|Seriously though, how cute are these two???|
And in honor of the season opener tomorrow - GO DUCKS!!!
Anyway, that's not the point of this blog, the fact that I see in numbers on a regular basis, the point is that my boys had birthdays this week! Matt turned the big 3-0 and Emmitt had his first birthday! We took our time celebrating last week. We ate steak and potatoes with cupcakes for dessert on Matt's birthday, headed to the zoo as a family on Thursday and topped off our day with Red Robin and then had family over to celebrate Emmitt on Friday night. All in all, plenty of cupcakes, ice cream and candy was consumed, which made it a great week, AND we got to love on our two favorite boys. ;)
Evidently our only zoo pictures were taken on the tractor. It's hard chasing kids and taking pictures!
About three months ago I got super excited when I thought about having a "Bug" party for Emmitt. I've called him Em-Bug ever since he was born and I couldn't wait to buy all sorts of bug candy in bulk from Winco. So pretty much the party involved candy and dirty cupcakes. Peanut Butter and honey butterfly sandwiches and bug juice. Cheap and fun. =) And thanks to Ramie's cricket, I used scrap book paper that's been sitting in my garage for five years to make a birthday banner.
Our birthday boy was all smiles, as usual...
Until he lost his shirt and tried stealing other people's food. Then life became real serious again.
Typical one year old birthday experience, all the big kids opening his presents for him. And in case you're interested there happened to be a really funny birthday post just two days after this on the blog Calling All Cool Moms. My brother told me about it. It must just be wishful thinking on his part, or maybe he thought I was cool enough and didn't want me to miss out. Either way, you should read it. She's funny.
Matt's birthday dinner and Madi's excitement about his birthday cupcakes we made.
The birthday boy eating his cupcake! We actually forgot to do this at his party, so we did it the next day in the sunshine. =)
I feel pretty lucky to have these two boys in my life! Even if 30 is old...
