Birthdays and illness.....

Wow, it's been awhile since my last post. We've had a lot going on in the past two weeks. Here is a run down.....

Friday, the 30th was Fionnys 3rd Birthday. Unfortunately Sean had to work, so we decided to postpone his Birthday until Monday. Sean was going on an 8 day PTO (Paid time off) that Monday, so what a perfect time to celebrate! We had a wonderful day. The kids and sean played pin the tail on the donkey and baseball outside for most of the day. We grilled cheese burgers and opened presents. Again, another child wanted an ice cream cake, sop back to Baskin Robins we went. Here is a picture of the cake.

After burgers we did presents. He got a stuffed Woody doll and Buzz Lightyear (He is in a Toy Story kick). 24 pack of play-doh, Henry the train, his first baseball glove and ball and a Zu-Zu pet. Wouldn't you know it, the Zu-Zu pet was a hit with all of them. Here are a few pictures of the preset opening....

After presents, we did the cake. Please excuse Seans' attire.

Blowing out the candles without setting his hair on fire. He blew them all out himself!

One very happy Birthday Boy!!

I had planned on do school the entire week Sean was off....ya, that didn't happen. The kids just don't pay attention when Sean is off, so we decided to get some much needed spring cleaning done. We put the kids to work all week. Needless to say, they were not By Saturday, the 8th Sean started coming down with something. He had slept the night before with a dirty fan blowing right on him. He woke up the next morning with a sore throat and stuffy sneezy nose. By that evening, he had a fever. Sunday morning...Mothers' Day, full blown FLU!!! He was achy, feverish, sore throat, sneezing and stuffed up. So much for Mother's Day. I spent the entire day waiting on HIM hand an foot. Now I have a sore throat.......just in time for him to go back to work tomorrow.

Here are a few more pictures of the kids over the last week and a half...enjoy!
