happy birthday jack

Today was a long day! I usaually get to sleep in kinda late (usually I get up around 9 or so). My kids sleep in so I usually just get up when they do. But today Cali and I had a lot to do so I was up at 7:55 and she came and picked us up at 8:30. It is amazing how nice and cool it is in the morning. haahaa.

Today was my nephew Jack's birthday party. We had another Star Wars birthday party, although this time it was only about the good guys. Oli loves everyone on the dark side. I keep telling myself it doesn't mean anything but sometimes I wonder. Anyways, Cali's kids only like the good guys. So we got a whole bunch of decorations in blue and green. Plus Star Wars banners, cups, napkins you name it. The party was outside at a park and we just planned on decorating the pavillion to the nines. Jack really rates how awesome parties are by the decoratations. Anyways, the first stormy day in the past month rolls in and our decorations were flying everywhere. I am not kidding it was SOOOO windy. Ohwell. The kids still had a great time.
Here he is...Jack...5 years old.
Joey played games with the kids forever. He had all sorts of things planned out. It was really cute watching him with them.
Here all the kids are running to the base (the tree)...some how Eliza missed out when they were saying what the base was. She is still having tons of fun though.
My Oli running. When we spend the day at Cali's house, he changes into their "cool" sports clothes. He changes as many times as he can because he wants to wear it all. Sometimes I worry, he totally has an idea about what is "cool" and loves clothes. He is going to drive me nuts when he is a teenager. I guess though I will know how he feels (since I always had to fish my clothes out of the trash after my parents threw them out).This picture is from last week. Poor Cortney he is always sooo tired. From where I was sitting in my Lazyboy reading I could just see all three of their round little heads. I had to have a picture.

I would give my left teet to sleep in past like 7:30 a.m. for a week straight. Seriously. You wait until the kids are in school and have to get up at the crack of dawn and guess who's making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches bleary eyed and half asleep? I can remember the days when I could sleep in. Emily was a late sleeper. I signed her up for afternoon kindergarten because of it. But 1st grade hit and whamo! The days were sadly OVER. Now I get NO sleep because of two of my many children are lousy sleepers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhh...that feels better. Better not post about sleep again.

Ashley,
I love this blogging stuff. Looks like you have been doing it for a while....and you are good at it....a nice journal everyday. Your boys are so cute!!! I love having a house full of boys. I am almost 7 months prego with our 3rd boy.....it will always be just me and the boys! When I think of you, I think of that history class we took together too....but I don't remember any spider bite in the butt!!! I still have this mini picture you drew me from that class....it was just some flowers and a butterfly...I put it in the corner of one of my frames and it has just always stayed there...crazy huh. Where are you living now? We're in Colorado...Denver area and I love it...all except I'm far from my family. Anyways, I'm excited to get your updates when I check your blog...it's great.
Tami (Layton)Nelson
