mixed feelings

i know i need to be there for her
i know i should be nicer about that boy she's dating
i cannot hide my frustration
so she's cutting me out

...seems fair. oh wait, no it doesn't

she wants my honest opinion
it's not going to change
she can't see that he's changed her
the guidelines were breached before they were even set

i hope for the best...but expect the worst.

summer craziness

it seems like every year i think to myself "once summer starts things will calm down" that NEVER happens. it's calm for the first day or two and then the craziness begins. this year it's mainly just solomons activities like; swimming lessons, vbs & art camp. i am so glad that he gets to do all these things it's just a lot of things to coordinate along with moses in tow, jakes new job & me trying to cram a few work days in there too. so my blog will be even fewer and farther between. so all you get for today is a pretty cool picture of solly at swimming lessons (i caught him just as he came down the slide kinda looks like he's just sitting on the water.

oh i suppose i should mention that we also got not one but TWO puppies. little 8 (almost 9) week old girl puppies. yes i have lost my mind. but look at these faces:
carrots & ramona (don't ask)
so thats that. the breece summer in a nut shell.

Par-Tay time.

to celebrate moses' birthday we had a nice big family birthday party. with pretty much just our family we had a whopping 25 people in our tiny house. it was crazy. it was hot. it was perfect.

i had found an idea for a cake that was prefect for moses about 7 months ago and i am happy to say that i think it turned out better than the original. i finished it late the night before the party so in the morning moses was very excited to see it. once he saw it he just wanted to stare at it for along time. it was very cute.
moses just lookin' at his cake:

before the party started i let moses put his toys on the cake:

opening his presents:

one last shot of the cake before it was time to eat it:

"happy birthday deeear mooosseess...":

moses doing his "ta-da" pose:

after everyone left the boys played so well together:
and then we went out to dinner as a family and moses just HAD to bring along his new "suit case" full of his new toys (while wearing his new headlight flashlight) he is such a goof ball!!
in this picture he was noticing in his reflection that i had turned off his headlight and was trying to fix that little problem:

it was a pretty great day. full of all my favorite people celebrating my favorite little moses.
