Catch Up on Birthdays!!

Luke's birthday
The Big 9 - He chose this year to go to Golden Corral. I mean, who doesn't want all you can eat desserts on their birthday? His birthday, I think was on a Wednesday this year, so we went to Golden Corral the night before cause kids are only $1.99, and then we had his cake on Wednesday, so he still got to blow out his candles!

Luke's games and Webkinz - his two favorite things!

Marshan's Birthday

Eric took me out overnight to Indy to a fabulous place. It was all a complete surprise where we were going. When we pulled in, I wasn't too impressed. Then we stepped inside, and this is only one of the FABULOUS things that I saw IN OUR ROOM. He also took me out to dinner at St. Elmo's. Yum.

Kaleb's b-day - 6
He chose to do Papa John's for his b-day dinner. That kid loves that place.

His Cake

Kaleb and his presents - Imaginext Toy Story stuff, some 90% off Halloween costumes, and a puzzle!

After his birthday, Kaleb had a small party.

Eric's B-day the big 40!!!

His mom sent this cake topper. It as supposed to light up, bloom, spin, and play music. The only thing it actually did was make a flame that was almost touching the ceiling and start melting the plastic! I started to freak out, and blew it out before he got a chance. Poor guy. After we blew it out it then started to bloom and do all the stuff I mentioned. Who knew it was a fire hazard? Crazy!

Can you guess what this it?

The kids and I made the banner for him!

What's wrong with me. I haven't blogged in months. It's not that I don't have the time, I just don't feel like it. There's always something crazy going on, so I have plenty of stuff to write about. I just don't. I even have about 10 blog posts saved waiting to be published. Maybe if I start small...I'll get back into the mode. I thought about a good subject to write about today....."Getting Flushed." Great title, huh? I wonder what's going through your heads right now.
Oh, and pictures? I'm not even going to tell you that I've barely taken any photographs of anyone since we got home from Gatlinburg. Shoot, I just glanced and the March and April folders...they are very, very sad. There has to be something wrong with me.

Argh... I've always heard that you just need to jump back into the saddle and do it. So that's what I'm going to be doing. I'm jumping in. Hopefully the saddle I'm jumping into is secure....(I've had an experience when it wasn't too secure, and let's say that wasn't too pleasant.), and that the horse isn't a bucking bronco. I'm going to go back and post all the old posts along with posting some new ones. Let the fun begin!
Here's the most recent of the fam that I have. Okay, I'm not in it, but I chose this on because the other isn't that pleasant. Hey, it's my blog, I can do that!

Our visit to the Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg back in February.
