Thanksgiving 2009

It was a very nice Thanksgiving this year. We stayed home and didn't have any family this year, so we hung out as a family. I cooked a full dinner and this is a picture of a pumpkin cake I made that was sooo good! So much better than pumpkin pie (my opinion). This is also the first year I think any of our kids realized what this Holiday is for and Patrick just before we were going to eat, said we should all go around the table and say what we are Thankful for and so we did. It was so nice to hear there thoughts and what there Thankful for, because amazingly enough they are Thankful for things that matter rather than just stuff..

This year I am very Thankful for our health, that we have jobs, a roof over our heads and for family and friends that are always by our sides.

Another Year... Happy Birthday Boys

Another Year has come and gone and its the twins Birthday today.. Happy 6th Birthday!! It is so crazy how time has flown by with them. We for sure thought that Blake would not make it to his 5th birthday, but here we are and he's at his 6th. We didn't do a party this year just kept it low key with the family. We took them to Fat Cats on Friday and to dinner and then tonight on there birthday I had asked them what kind of cake they wanted and they said they wanted to make there own and be able to decorate it themselves. So, I bought there favorite flavor (strawberry) and we made them up and then after they were done baking and cooled we let them decorate there own cake. So as you look through the pictures you will see how they decorated there cakes and the one with a million sprinkles on it is Blakes. I think they both did a pretty good job on them for decorating for the 1st time and actually tasted pretty good.
Looking back at the beginning and how much work it was with them and now they are becoming there own little men and growing up so fast. We love you both and are so happy that you are in our lives.. You keep us all laughing.

Happy Halloween 2009..

The boys this year were Transformers. Patrick and Blake were good ones and Jake decided to be the bad one. They can't wear them to school (like we used to) so they enjoy them at the trunk or treat party we had and then around the neighborhood trick or treating. They had a great year this year and we didn't have any wardrobe malfunctions with the costumes so that was good. They got tons of candy between both of the things this year that I think will last us until next year.. Joe even got involved this year with a costume and decided to be a Cereal Killer. It was a cute idea and fits him perfectly.
