I'm only like, two months behind here, but since it's my blog and I can do what I want, I'm going to! ;) I felt like all of the kids' birthdays were extra, extra special this year and since this is my journal, I wanted to be able to have memories of what we did. And, this is probably going to be long. So here we go...
JENNA - MARCH 14TH - 8 is great!
Blake was in the hospital for Jenna's birthday. I knew at the beginning of the week it wasn't looking good for us to be home. I was about ready to have a meltdown about it to be honest with you. Our friend, Jay, called and asked if he could do anything. I asked if he would be willing to bring Jenna to Iowa City and then hang out with Blake while we went out for lunch. He agreed!
BRODY - MARCH 28TH - Super 6!
Brody was very concerned about whether or not I was going to be home for his birthday. One night when we were talking on the phone while at the hospital he asked me. Broke my heart. I hate that my kids should even have to worry about this. It turns out we weren't in the hospital - yay!
Friday was Brody's big day and I surprised him by having lunch with him at school. He saw me and said, "Mom, what are you doing here?!" *biggest smile ever*
It's always good to have a plan B! I asked Brody if he wanted to go to Perfect Games (bowling, arcade games) in Ames or to Bass Pro Shop. He picked Bass Pro Shop. I mean, that place is pretty awesome... :)
Happy Birthday Brody! I love the way your mind is always working and you have, hands-down, the best smile ever!! :)
They got this gator for their birthday and they are smitten with it. They can think of nothing else when going outside except this gator. This looks like trouble...!
I say it every year and I'll say it again...Blake and Bowen, you are the best things I never knew I wanted! I love you both, you are the best!
