birthdays, birthdays...

We have LOTS of birthdays the first 3 months of the year...today was Lance's. Happy Birthday to the love of my life!

He's not as obnoxious as the rest of us are on our birthdays - ha! - actually, he likes to play it really low key, but we still love to celebrate him and the milestone of another year. Living to see another year is aLwAYs a gift!

I don't know if it was the later-than-usual lunch, waking up too early and being tired or just that they were not feeling their best, but we had a bit of a rough time at lunch, as you can see by the tears and teary-eyes :(.............
Moods started to perk up with the opening of gifts...
And by the time 12 of these lovelies came out...
 ...the littles were LOTS happier!  Thank you for treating us to lunch, Mimi!!
{Naps made everyone feel much better - hooray!}

I do find it funny that I have one prissy little miss...
...and one who is all about little boy humor!
Actually, they both laughed about this silly 'ole toy for hours on end.  Sometimes if you can't beat them, you just have to join them! Silliness goes a long way toward improving grouchy moods ;)
While 75% of our household took naps, I went on a little shopping excursion to look for birthday goodies for the little pumpkin's upcoming big day. I may not have found too many birthday goodies, but I did find some adorable Easter goodies!!!
And I may or may not have bought myself a little birthday treat too. Sssshhhh...
Happy Saturday!

Hi Jessica! I love reading your post - my mind is constantly thinking of all of the crafts I need to do now! My little man is only 7 months old and I can't wait to do some of the school snacks and crafts you've done, and of course the North Pole breakfasts!!!
I'm feeling inspired enough to consider starting to blog myself and am curious to know if you do it mostly from the website directly or the app? Also, do you primarily take photos on your camera and upload?
Thanks for your inspirational blog!
