Ahoy Matey!

Today was a big day at our house. We celebrated Peyton's 4th Birthday, although his birthday really isn't until tomorrow. Since we just got back from a Disney Cruise, we decided we'd have a Pirate Mickey party. I seem to forget every year just how much work a birthday party is. But...in the end it is all worth it because the kids have so much fun and we get to spend time with the people who mean the most to us. It is really hard for me to believe Peyton is 4. I think I'll blog more about that tomorrow. Back to the party...it was pretty uneventful at first. I had been a little worried about the weather but that all worked out. Peyton is old enough now to run around and play and pretty much do his own thing. The kids were sliding, playing in the pool, and enjoying the hot dogs and cake. Well...I was beginning to enjoy the delicious cake (made by Mrs. Paula :) and then Logan pointed out to me that Wilson was covered in ants. Apparently he had picked up a cheeto off the ground and it had already been claimed by ants. Well, my first instinct was to grab him and dunk him in the pool. Those ants were everywhere...even up his nose. Leave it to us to have to have some calamity at the party. We survived and Wilson only has about 30 bites. I don't even think Peyton realized it happened. After that Peyton had a ball opening presents. It is amazing how grown up he is now. He played and played all evening with his presents and I think Daniel had as much fun with them as he did. I have put a slideshow from the party on here. It was a great day!

The reason I blog

Well...let's see. I have a friend from college (hey Dana) who informed me that blogging was the grown up Myspace. So, here I am...trying to be grown up. No really, I do think this will be a great way to keep up with old friends and maybe make some new ones. And...at the same time, it can be a journal of sorts for my boys. I am not the greatest at keeping up with their baby books. Okay, Wilson only has his feet print in his...that's another blog altogether. So, enough about the reason I am beginning this blog...'til next time.
