Look how much he's grown!
Hmmm.... I think those pajamas look familiar....
Yep! Ayden was wearing those at the beginning of this summer! Now, granted, they are size 12 months and are not snug on Dillon but still! Ayden is two years older and just outgrew that top and now Dillon is wearing it. They grow so fast.
Speaking of growing up so fast, Brooklyn had a program at her school tonight. The fourth and fifth graders dressed up as famous people in history and turned the school into a museum. They were told to act like robots and when viewers came by they would 'press their button' and the robot would tell them all about that individual. Brooklyn was William Lloyd Garrison. What's that you say? You don't know who he is? Well then, have a listen...
Bobby said she looked like a puppet but that was the point. I think she did great. Garrison would've worn knicker type pants and tights so, luckily, she had her brother's too short pants and his shirt. She looked pretty good considering she put it together at the last minute. I didn't think she'd be able to go since Bobby works most nights. She did this entirely on her own. She wrote her part, memorized it and planned the outfit without ever asking for help! She's a doer, for sure!

I often go walking in meadows of clover,
And I gather armfuls of blossoms of blue.
I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over,
Dear Mother, all flowers remind me of you.
Oh Mother, I give you my love with each flower
To give forth sweet fragrance a whole lifetime through
For if I love blossoms and meadows and walking,
I learn how to love them, dear Mother, from you.

I thought I would post some more pictures of the kids and combine those with a thank you from them to Holly for the little goodies she sent them along with my gift.
Caleb wanted those strings that kids braid into keychains and such. Aunt Holly delivered big time!
Seth wanted a five star notebook with blue lines and red lines. That didn't sound too hard... so how was it the one thing she couldn't find anywhere? She finally found it at a grocery store on her lunch break! Well, Holly, you'll be happy to know, he put it to good use immediately!
Brooklyn is getting the name brand clothes bug that seems to be highly contagious with children her age. Holly had some name brand shirts that had shrunk up on her so she sent them with some cute notepads.
Holly sent the babies three very cute little books. Ayden was melting down when the package came though so he insisted on a picture with no book. He's cute even in the midst of meltdown mode.
Dillon can not hold his book. What is wrong with that kid? In an effort to build those book holding muscles, he is pushing up full force. Here he is, working those arms so they will be better able to turn pages.
Sorry I cut off the top. I have to frame him in the camera, then peek to the side and grin to get a smile out of him. I have no idea why a black box provokes no smiles from that child.
Bobby bought a cake for me and is planning on making a nice dinner tomorrow. He invited over another family and we are all going to celebrate mother's day together. I look forward to it and I'm sure I'll have more photos. Thank you again to everyone who made this birthday special.

Who would have thought... in sharing an old movie that I used to love as a kid, I created a new obsession for Seth?
Who would have thought... A hard, plastic sippy cup with a car on it could create so much excitement?
