Must love birthday parties……

Life.

It’s a total roller coaster i tell ya.

I woke up this morning with my house a shakin…

literally.

Now…i grew up in So. Cali…so i know what earthquakes are…

and even though it was only like a 4.5 this morning…

it felt like we were being bombed.

Bryan and i jumped out of bed…

i mean…

can you picture it…

{at least i don’t sleep in the nude..}

and i ran into lola’s room..

grabbed her out of bed..

at this point she’s confused and shaking..

and we run down the stairs…

and bryan talks me out of

hiding under the dining room table.

I’m still thinking of an air raid…

missiles…

bombs.

ummmm….nope.

just a little tremor….

and i lost a few beloved frames from my wall..

and one little pitcher that sat to close to

the edge of a dresser.

whew.

I even think they downgraded the actual number from a 4.5

to a 3.6.

lame….because it totally felt like a 7.6…

yes..

it did.

Anyways….life…..

we spent our sunday at the Shedd Aquarium…

have you ever been?

it’s amazing.

my kids love it…

I keep telling bryan that one day i’m just

going to take the kids out of school for the day

and spend it at the shedd…

when it’s not so crowded.

Then reality hits…on a school day..

and i think to myself…

why would i think of taking them out of school…

i mean…

really….

but i should…

and maybe i’ll surprise myself one day..

and just do it.

I’m heading to kindergarten registration this morning…

but i’m not crying.

i won’t be one of those moms.

my baby…my almost five year old….

the one who does no wrong

is being registered for kindergarten.

It’s a really good thing i’m heading to

New Mexico this weekend…

so i can get my baby fix… from my brothers new babe…

little putter.

They live in a ski resort area right above Taos…

so we will be doing some skiing…

and tubing..

and i for sure will be holding some baby…

lots and lots of baby holding.

alrighty…

my ovaries are kicking in to high gear…

i can hear them telling my uterus to

get ready.

aaaggh.

If my hubby only knew what was going on over here…

good thing he’s had the clippity clip.

I woke up also to finding out that my sun room was being

featured over at

I love that blog. {thanks melissa}

{i think its funny that the pic above has nothing to do with baby making}
oh….

and i just wanted to throw this out to you….

Have you ever wanted to throw an amazing birthday party?

Have you ever needed a wonderful

homemade birthday cake recipe?

Are you the type of mom that just loves to host them?

Are you children the best behaved at parties?

Do they listen…are they polite?

If not….

then feel free to call me.

because apparently i love birthday parties…

and i…

or my children…

can help you…
have a fabulous time.


yes…that is us.
we got a call last year that the local park district wanted
mason and lola for the spring cover.
Like a good mom…i said …sure.
you got it.
who knows..maybe from this …the gap will be calling us…
{note to Anthro: i am wearing your skirt and top from the 2009 line}
anyways…
we got there and then all of the sudden they ask me
to step in and look like i’m having a
BLAST.
at least the cake was good.
