I turned 39 last week and I can't say that I enjoyed it, except for the Sprinkles cupcakes that Brian got me, the evil man, right when I'm trying to lose a load of baby weight! I'm feeling way too old.
But I also got a whole day off, which is pretty much the best thing ever.
A whole day to myself, uninterrupted by carpools & baby naps & 4-year-olds.
I definitely enjoyed that.
Too many calories to count, but you only turn 39 once, right?
Actually, maybe I'll be turning 39 for many years to come........
Two days later, Jake turned 13.
It wasn't a party year for him, but he had a few friends over for a scary movie late night. He & his friends are so into scary movies right now. They love to freak themselves out, even though they can't go to sleep that night because of it. At one point I walked into the family room to find them all huddled together screaming like little girls. So funny!
We took him shopping at Sidewalk Surfer & to lunch at Red Robin.
We just can't believe he's thirteen already.
It seems like just yesterday that I was holed up in our student housing apartment, running the vacuum for hours trying to soothe this colicky baby.
Good thing he was such a stinkin' cute baby!
The other day I walked into my shower to find this......
......and I smiled real big.
Zane & Gus had taken a shower in there the night before & had rounded up all the rubber duckies they could find.
I love finding unexpected evidences of little people around my house.
I know I'm going to miss it some day.
Although, that day seems very far away.
Brian finally put to rest his ancient Palm Treo and got an iPhone.
I think he loves it more than me.
This was a stupid idea.
These candy jars were basically full two days ago.
We got a new exersaucer.
Caroline's toes barely touch the bottom.
She must be teething because she's very slobbery lately.
We ended the week with General Conference & stayed in our jammies all day.
Zane & Gus got alot out of the afternoon session.
And that sums up our week.......except, of course, all the soccer & volleyball & basketball games & practices & piano lessons & scouts & a preschool program & Dr. appointment & lots of homework & laundry......
