Isaac and Stephen are 8!

IMG_4943We celebrated the boys’ birthday in Alabama. It is a good thing since the long anticipated gift of a skateboard would have been anticlimactic in the snow. Our traditional birthday breakfast is monkey bread, but Isaac and Stephen opted for a variation this year: homemade Belgian waffles with ice-cream and maple syrup. I figured there couldn’t be any more sugar in that than monkey bread. We returned to Kathy’s from the beach on their birthday and ate at Full Moon BBQ for dinner. The following evening we were joined by the Roberts and the Rileys for cupcakes. I usually make their cakes, a carry over from when they were allergic to eggs, and I rather enjoy it. This year however purchasing cakes was a necessity, so I called Publix and ordered blue frosted cupcakes and added my own beach-themed decorations–crabs. They were very happy with them.

My tiny babies aren’t so tiny any more, but even though they don’t fit in my lap as well as they used to, they fit in my heart just perfectly.  I am so glad to be their momma.IMG_4930IsaacStephenIMG_4942 IMG_4962 IMG_4638 IMG_4637 IMG_4633 IMG_4632
