double birthday 2012

yowza! i am so behind on life right now, including this blog. procrastination is a dangerous thing...i start thinking about how much i have to do and it gets really overwhelming so instead i sit and read blogs so my brain can take a break, while my to-do list continues to grow. but now! now i am tackling it. so while i catch up the one-eyed wonder blog, my inbox / unpacking / cleaning / laundry / organizing / painting will have to wait. get ready to get some maaaajor blog catch up coming your way.

starting first, of course, with the 2012 double birthday celebration! thursday was me & jack's birthday. it was a pretty low key day -- presents, a short trip to green lake, playing with new toys outside, brinner for dinner and donuts for dessert. does anyone else feel disappointed if they don't do something earth-shattering on their birthday? b thinks i'm crazy for considering thursday to be a slow birthday. no matter, because around here we celebrate birthday WEEK so there's a party every day :)

this was a very sporty birthday for jack. between us & the grandparents, he got a t-ball set, a mini basketball hoop, some velcro catching mitts and a remote-controlled car. plus some books and a mini broom to help mom sweep -- his favorite activity. :)

i can't believe this kid is 2! below is what he looks like when you tell him to say cheese. haha. don't mind the awful crewcut...i took him for a buzz this week and it turned out a little too short for my liking.

the weather has been super nice this week so after naptime we went outside to play. he loves driving his race car around already! side note: why does he look like he's 12 in these pictures?


b surprised me with a really cool map i've been wanting forever, plus a fancy date night for this weekend -- i'll share more details after we go. plus he brought home my favorite top pot doughnuts so basically he rocked the birthday celebration this year. also, it was SO so fun to get facebook messages, texts and calls throughout the day. i have the best friends and family!

Love the shirt first of all, and happy birthday to you and jack! Can't believe it's been two years since y guys were here. I'm going to be in Seattle in August. Let's pray for good weather and a beach day, minus the rain this time!

I've been waiting for a new post!!! Birthday's are SO fun. I also like doing something big on birthdays--this year I sorta got overshadowed by a death but we made up for it! Also, next year is my 30th--so i'm thinking something big--perhaps an Alaskan cruise! I can't wait to get up there!

Happy double birthday! I wish Jane could have joined in the fun. Alas, she's comfy and cozy. Looks like a fun day!
