There was a lot going on. We are really tired. Just like normal.
The kids found a toad. The toad still lives! (Yay for mommy!)
|They are not mean boys, I just feared that Thing 2 would attempt|
walking near him and topple over. Splat.
|I love toads. I can't help it....|
As you all know, I made these INCREDIBLE (if I do say so myself) cakes for Thing 1's 4th birthday earlier this month:
|Who Who is awesome? ME.|
When my wonderful devoted husband turned *cough cough*another year older last Friday and I decided that I would bake him
I baked. The Things ran around the house like a pack of rabid dogs. I layered. The Things slowly and methodically ripped apart every square inch of my house. I spread raspberry filling in the center. The Things ate food off the floor and licked the mirror. I made the same chocolate buttercream that I made for the Hooty Group up there and then I remembered that my friend owned all of the frosting tips. The Things resisted naptime. Yay! I found some parchment triangles and while the kids screamed I started to write my Duke inspired message to my hubby.... Apparently, I wasn't paying attention to details. Details like s p a c i n g.
|I'm impressed that it doesn't say "Happy Damn It!"|
Yes, those are stickers. I was out of steam.
Don't judge me.
It really doesn't matter. It tasted great. I think Brock knows that I love him. I don't need a cake to tell him....
I tell him every day in my own special ways. Like when I wash his clothes, fold them and put them away. Or how we drink wine together... Or go on our date once a month.... Or when we tag team the kids bedtime routine at night... Or... ehhhh. You get the picture.
|We are both MUCH more attractive in person.... I hope.|
Saturday and Sunday were spent on the yard. The barn yard, specifically.
We took the barn yard from this:
|Yes, the Things are cute, but the weeds.... not so much.|
|Tah dah! And the grass seed has been planted in the bare spots.|
Good thing we birthed us some
While Thing 1 and Brock were toiling away with their wheelbarrows, I was raking the crusher (zen garden, anyone?) and watching Thing 2 so that he didn't eat dirt.
|Oh surprise! There is red dog with the ball.|
If anyone enjoys eating cake and dirt, kisses, toads, work... and eating dirt, stop by and say hi! Bring your gloves though, Thing 1 is a real task master.
