The Cake

Okay, here is the cake. For some reason it wouldn't load the other day. Isn't it magnificent? Yeah, I think so, too.

Happy Birthday Mandy!

Mandy had a great 7th birthday party! I can't believe she is already 7. I remember bringing her home from the hospital, knowing for sure I would break her. At 6lbs 6oz I couldn't imagine anything smaller I'd ever had to care for before. Today, Mandy is so bright, so polite, so creative, so tender hearted. I didn't realize how much I missed her this last school year until she was home all day for the summer! She is so fun. This year, she wanted a Dragon birthday party. Here is the cake and the game the kids are playing is Dragon tag. We had a great day.

Eira trying new things

Here is our Eira eating rice cereal for the first time. She hasn't eaten cereal for a while since she has been sick. We'll get right back on it soon. Who knows, we may even give her some bananas, too. That's us, living on the edge.

Sick of being sick

I haven't updated much because we have been sick at our house for two weeks now! When I say sick I mean, Eira has been sick for two weeks now. Something yucky started with Lucy and then filtered through the whole family landing heavily on the baby. I got a little something towards the end, too. Now, Eira has ear infections. We are so hoping to get everyone well so we'll be well for our cabin trip. Anyone who knows us know of the infamous cabin curse. We hope to avoid it. I'll post about Mandy's birthday a little later.
