I was BITTEN.....

but I survived! Last Sunday I decided that I needed to read the Twilight series because that was all I was hearing about everywhere. So 12 days later, I am done with all 4 books and am happy to have read them. Now I can get on with my crazy busy life, whew!

Max and the Giant Strawberry

During the birthday festivities Max found that one of the girls didn't want her strawberries and he couldn't let a good thing go to waste. At first I was worried about him choking on this big strawberry, but once he had it, he was not giving it up. See how this momentous experience unfolded...
"Oh look, a huge strawberry!"
"...should I just take it in bites?"
"No way, someone might take it away from me."
"I'll put the whole thing in my mouth."
"Almost got it all the way in."

TRANSLATION: "Can't close my mouth, but it's in."
"Ha ha, it's all mine."
"Oops, it is starting to come out, I'll just push it back in."
"SO GOOD! Think anyone else left their strawberry lying around?"
I LOVE that boy!!!

Give me FIVE!

Today we celebrated Ally's 5th birthday! We always seem to pick the hottest day to do things for her birthday, but she is an August baby so I suppose it should be expected. Anyways, on to the luau!!

First the girls arrived, got flowers in the hair and made their own leis. They lost interest about 3/4 of the way to being done, but not too bad.
Then it was time for some fruit kabobs!

And smoothies, because we were all SO hot (especially me running around)!
Even Max was in on the smoothie action.
Faces got painted (and removed) somewhere in there too!
Can't forget to sing Happy Birthday andf have cake (although again, it was so hot the frosting was melting, ick)!
We ended it all with a good pinata whacking!!
Hopefully Ally enjoyed it all, it was her first "real" party!!

Too cute!

I know this picture is blurry (he is a wiggler), but it was too cute not to share. Yesterday he picked up Ally's baby doll and started walking around the house with it on his shoulder. Oh how I love that sweet boy!!!

Fun in the midst of errands

Yesterday my good friend Kamaile and her son Marcus came with us to get supplies for Ally's 5th birthday party that is on Friday. She was there to help me with ideas, thankfully so, because I had nothing. At the end of our shopping we put the little boys on this riding train thing, and Max was SO happy, he LOVED it!!

I love this picture because you can see their blurry hands both trying to get the control :o)
