Seven Years Ago

I started this post on Wednesday but ran out of time before I could post.

I cannot believe my first born, my tiny little fella is now a bit 7 year old. I feel like writing something really mushy about how my baby has grown but nahhhhh, I am just too excited for him. He is over the moon about being 7 years old and I am beyond thrilled about it.

Here he is, just a few minutes old and already the center of our world.

And here he is hitting the big 7!!!! Ok, not the most flattering photo but I had trouble getting him to be still for even a second and this was the best I could do.

We had a small party for him at the restaurant, with just our family (minus Aunt Cheryl-we missed you but he loves his Hot Wheels Elimination Racetrack). Nicholas was so darned funny about his "small party" as he called it. He gave me a list over the phone of things he wanted me to purchase for it and then made me read the list back to him. After tweaking the list and going over it a couple of times, he must have then lost all confidence in me, as he told me to just pick him and he would go with me. Ugh, I have no idea where he gets this.

He is having a large birthday party on the 13th with his friends, we needed to wait until school started to make sure we didn't exclude anyone. Gonna be a hectic couple of weeks with Nick's party on the 13th and Grey's on the 20th. But my boys are gonna have a ton of fun!

I'll update next week with pictures of their first day of school. Can't believe it is here already. And I am really having a hard time believing my baby is starting Kindergarten.

Sooooooo Long

I cannot believe it has been sooooo long since my last post/update. Just chalk it up to a busy summer. Not making excuses, ok yeah I am, but between the restaurant, the boys, their activities and life in general, I cannot seem to find the time to sit down and form a coherent though, much less enough to fill a blog post.

Life is good, the boys are great, and summer has been even better than the spring. But sadly it is coming to an end. Yes, that's right, school is just around the corner. Like next week, can you believe it? Both boys will be in school. Once again I have mixed feelings about this. My baby will be in Kindergarten, wth? How did this happen? But he is soooo excited and I am so very excited for him.

We have already purchased all school supplies, the boys and I made a big day of it. We had a lunch date, some play time, a trip to the store to get our supplies, then finished it up with ice cream from Maggie Moo's. Ahhhhh, what could be better?

That's about it for the update tonight. I will try to update with some pictures after school starts and some Birthday pics.

I'll close with few pics of the boys this summer.

Home Improvement Project? Yes, they are painting with oil based paint and yes, that is one of my dining room walls.

The Boys of Summer. Nick and Grey with their cousins, Evan and Dylan.Exploring the fort at our local park.

Greyson slid down this poll about 30 times and now wants one at home.

4th of July. Lakeside waterslide, family, watermelon, fireworks. Its a hard life.

I am a little concern with his fashion choices. In case you cant make it out, he is wearing his batting helmet, his tie dyed Spiderman shirt, denim shorts and spiderman snow boots.
