I just want to start out by saying, there have been so many (so, SO many) posts I have been meaning to write (like since before Christmas), and I just haven’t made it to my computer to write them. I have taken pictures with my phone, thinking: “This will be a good post,” trying to encourage myself, to remember, to sit down and POST!
Well, needless to say, that obviously did not happen.
I might one day do a really long post, with all the pictures I’ve taken. Or post individual posts that are way out of date. I’ll keep you posted. Ha! 😉
Now let me start. Today.
Today is my boys’ 8th birthday. WOW!
They were awoken by a birthday Skype serenade… horns tooting, birthday song, “Good morning boys!!” and all, by Gram and Papa B. What a way to start the day! Celebrate!
I dropped the boys off at school, each with their own brownies (per their request) and apple slices to share with the kids. Each awaited a surprise at their desk. 🙂
(Please excuse the blurry pictures… dim lighting, holding a baby, old phone. Excuses, excuses!!)
At home, I’ve been eagerly preparing for their celebration tonight. A key lime pie is waiting in my refrigerator, along with chocolate cupcakes, with chocolate frosting and sprinkles to be enjoyed after dinner tonight. Oh, and birthday meal of choice: homemade Mac n’ Cheese. (A favorite of the boys at the moment). Presents are laid out… and have definitely been eyed. 😉 I think that is what they are most excited about – besides turning 8.
Happy birthday sweet boys! Your mom and dad love you like crazy!!
