Jordan enjoys a quiet celebration for his birthday. This year he had a family gathering on Sunday afternoon, it featured his favorites, hamburgers, watermelon and corn on the cob. He chose German chocolate cake for his dessert, yuck. Works good for me however as I don't want to eat any, it is completely safe around me day or night. As a matter of fact there are three pieces still sitting there on the cake plate right now. Anyway, on Monday he wanted to just have a couple of buddies over, he chose his long time friend Reuben and then another friend came later in the day, Ezekiel. Reuben spent most of the day with us, they played video games, shot each up with airsoft guns ate lots of junk food and then some more video games. It was fun and memorable and an ideal day of celebrating. We ended the day with Jordan's choice dinner of tacos, which he was not hungry for until later because of the hot tamales, pizza and Monster Triple Chipper cookies. (He didn't even bust into the bag of Cheetos, let's hope he never finds out I bought them for him!) :) Happy Birthday Jordan! You're the BEST!
Kingdom Series ! So of course, with his birthday coming up what a perfect time to buy the next trilogy written and of course have him sign it to him!! Which Chuck was happy to oblige us! That top picture is of Chuck signing Jordan's book and the bottom is how Scott creatively wrapped his books...in the empty cake mix box. He thought he was very clever and it was funny because Jordan did not right off guess what it was! It was a fun surprise, I could barely wait to give him the books, but I made it. (Well til Sunday at least, but that was still pretty darn good, considering his birthday was Monday!)

What a blustery day! This was a day we spent with our friends out on Jetty Island. The kids had such a great time building this large fort! It had several rooms and the kids really enjoyed themselves. As for me, I was very whimpy and whiny, it was cold and windy...thankfully Suzanne had a blanket and I was able to wrap up against the elements! :) It was a fun and memorable afternoon.
