Birthday Catch-Up Post

So I don't have any pictures of Spencer on his Birthday. He is at the age where it is hard to get him in any pictures. However, this is a quick re-cap of our birthday festivities.

Gavin got a Nintendo DS for his birthday. He was VERY excited about it.

He also loves SpongeBob and puzzles. So this floor puzzle was a good find.

My Birthday was yesterday. A sweet friend of mine (thanks again, Rachel) brought me by this cute clown ice cream. I used to admire these from afar when I was a little kid. It was fun to finally get one.

We combined Emily and Ethan's family party and had a SpongeBob theme. The kids had fun with the extra hats.

Ethan opening one of his presents.

We went to Chuck-E-Cheese on Ethan's birthday to celebrate. He LOVED this dog ride and had a hard time sharing with the other kids who wanted a turn.

These pictures are a little out of order, but Ethan simply LOVES cupcakes. He had about 3 the night of his party.

Emily and one of her gifts. The kids always get spoiled and love every minute of it.

Emily making use of her extra hat.

This is my niece Addison. She is the cutest little bug ever. Her mom says that this is her "flirting" face. She is honestly too cute.

Again, out of order, but you can see how delighted Ethan was when riding with his dog at Chuck-E-Cheese.

Spencer and Emily playing one of their favorite games. Spencer was too into it to even look at me for the picture.

Gavin and his tickets. He loves shopping for prizes with his tickets before we go home. The prizes are totally lame, but hey, whatever makes them happy.

Ethan waiting at the table for another turn on his dog ride. He really had a hard time letting the other children have a turn. It's so hard being 3.

Emily is such a poser. She is my one child who doesn't EVER shy away from the camera. She LOVES being in the spotlight. It makes me wonder what she will be like when she gets older.

Anyway, I still have lots of pictures from a previous Hope Kids event, a family wedding in March, and from Spencer's band concert last night. But these will have to wait for another time.
Also, we are finally going to have Emily's friend birthday party tomorrow (I know, 3 weeks late), but she wanted to go to a fish farm and so we've had to wait for good weather. Anyway, I am sure I will have some pictures from that as well. Until next time! Muah!
