James turns 3!

I haven’t blogged in a while, mostly due to the fact that there doesn’t seem to be much to say.  This past summer I blogged a lot, but now that we’ve moved there isn’t much going on.  I also seem to forget my camera a lot when we do go somewhere fun which is sad. 

But this week we had James’ b-day party! Yes it was a week late this year, mostly because one present I was getting off craiglist took awhile.  Despite this being the smallest party we have had, and the most low-key (no balloons, or streamers) James had a great time.  We are so glad that Aunt Emma was here to celebrate with us! 

Emma made and decorated the cake for me.  it was an apple cake with vanilla frosting and peanut butter M&M’s.


We had cake and ice cream first this year, instead of after opening presents.  The kids were hungry so why make them wait?

Then we opened presents.  Titus made the comment that apparently you have to be three to really understand present opening. 🙂

Thank you Grandma Sharon, Aunt Alaina and Uncle Lincoln for the box of stuff


We got him a bunch of food and a little kitchen for his b-day.  James’ asks all the time to ‘go to church’, which sounds really spiritual but it’s because there is a play kitchen in the children’s room and he wants to play with it.  I don’t think my living room will ever be clean again! But if they have fun then it’s worth it.
