A few pictures...

I tried to copy my cute sister Jen. She has the cutest birthday banner. Thanks to my niece Annie, I had a cricut to make it a little easier. But my kids informed me that I don't decorate as much as my neighbor Jenni. Apparently she goes all out for birthdays and my decorations were not cutting it.

In the craziness of the day, I ended up ordering pizza. Except I forgot that Gavin had pizza for lunch today (My friend Sunni saved me and took Gavin to Chuck E Cheese for his birthday. She wins the prize!) and Teague and Elise are going to eat pizza at school tomorrow. Oh well. It was easy.
My carpool partner and good friend, Cheryl, has the hook-up at McDonalds and has fixed two of my bad days with birthday cake from McD. It is good! Gavin wanted to eat Ronald McDonald's face so we started by cutting a piece out of the middle. My sister Kristine also made a cake and we at some of that too. And then we watched Biggest Loser. I don't even feel guilty. :)


Gavin wanted a wheelbarrow and a digital camera. That is what he got. Pretty funny. He was seen pushing an adult size wheelbarrow this summer. This ought to be a little better.



Don't those shoes and that smile kill you? She knows she is cute.



My neighbor let me borrow her Bumbo chair. It is so funny to see a little baby sitting up, but it works great.





The Green Machine. Gavin wanted this more than anything for Christmas. And Santa delivered!

Happy Birthday Gavin!!!

What a funny kid- a wheelbarrow? That is too funny. I love how you are a cool mom who doesn't try to be practical, just gives them their wish. So cute.

What cute pictures!! And that little baby of yours gets cuter and cuter!! Those shoes are sooooo cute! I just found out I am having a girl and am soooo excited! The girl stuff out now is to DIE for! You are such a great mom, Annie! You are dealing with so much and still do everything for your kids! And your decorations look great!!

I think it is awesome that Gavin can get you to buy things like wheelbarrows and a green machine. My kids have the same skills. Those baby photos are adorable. I am sorry you have to do the hospital thing... again.

Annie-you guys got yourselves some cute kids. Last year we were on the road for Natalie's birthday, in the middle of nowhere, so she got Doritos and oreos from the gas station, the only store we could find. She didn't seem to mind.
