Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

Someone in our house has a birthday this week. I'm not saying who! But, he or she made a deal in Chicago to forgo having a party, in lieu of getting a new doll at the American Girls..... or Boys Place. Ahem. He or She has been surprisingly mature about his or her decision, especially for a child turning 8....or 4, or 13, or 20. Heh. That particular child has not changed his or her mind, has not resorted to begging, has not so much as mentioned a party. One. Single. Time. Nope.

As a result of the lack of puppy-eye activity I received........I caved. CAVED I TELL YOU! Okay, well not actually. I did not throw her an official party or anything. But, see. We had 4 cousins just hanging around the house anyway. And, you put that with the four kids I already got. And, add some cupcake action....and well, whatdoyouknow! It kinda sorta looks like a PAR-TAY! But it most definitely is not. Because, when I put my foot down, it stays down! Yessiree Bob. Heh.

Like I've said....Lindsay is special!

Jordan is just getting started!

Could this be more fun????

Apparently, it could.

Claire enjoyed it. Have I mentioned that she loves birthdays? You should have heard her screaming at our friend, Maggie's, party last weekend!

BEHOLD, the sugary goodness! And no, sadly, this is not an organic cupcake or even an all-natural wonder. This situation was on the fly, folks. I had to make do with what I could get my hands on. I tried not to think about all the chemicals that my kids were ingesting and chose only to focus on the positive......

Positively yummy

Positively adorable

Positively sweet

Positively beautiful

Megan enjoyed about three of these babies!

Positively hilarious!
Lindsay enjoyed making them....not so much with the eating!

Lindsay's masterpiece!

Why are my kids always trying to shot me with stuff???
That's what I want to know!

I'm still not saying whose birthday it will be on Friday. But, he or she will get only a birthday agree upon. And maybe a present. And possibly a lemon cake with lemon icing. With some grandparents and godparents hanging around the house. But that is it, Missy....or Mr!
You know who you are.

Strange kid
