A photo of the cake I made him for his party on Saturday. The bottom part of the box was the cake and the lid was made out of styrofoam covered with frosting and fondant. It took me forever to put all the details on it. I decorated it on Friday night listening to sappy love songs and dedications and drinking dirty martinis.
I'm pretty sure all the kids had a good time.

I have been planning on posting some of the pics but the camera card is FULL to the brim and it takes forever, so today I went to Walmart (oh my favorite place...I mean that sarcastically) and downloaded my disk...over 600 pics were on it. NO, not all of the birthday party. Just stuff that has accumulated over the past couple of months. I will be picking up the 4 cd's tomorrow so I'll post pics then.
Otherwise, you need to enjoy this lovely photo of my cute little Lily eating a milkweed. Shh, don't tell my mother-in-law...hopefully it doesn't have any monarch eggs or baby caterpillars on them. They (the 5 pygmy goats) were yelling to be let out to eat the fresh grass. So, I took this pic of Lily, she was the only one looking at me.
As you can tell, I have changed things up a little bit on this site. I added a new pic of the barn with some great dried up thistles, and I also added my etsy site. Finally I figured out how to add the etsy info. It was just a matter of sitting down and reading. Silly me...
Let me know what you think of the changes...

So... cake, cookies, goodie bags, decorations, presents, good weather, treasure hunt, games, cookies...am I forgetting something? Oh yeah, cleaning house!! That's the big one! I can't believe my little boy is turning 9. Where has it gone. This week I will be posting a collage of pics from each of his birthdays...it should be cute to see how he has grown. It will most likely make me cry. I always do the week of his birthday.

So I took this photo after trying to capture a cat over my shoulder. I missed completely except for part of my eye, which happens to look very blue today. Normally my eyes range in color especially if I am tired or sick and today the sick won out. I should explain that I was up all night deathly ill. It started off with a little headache which quickly blew into a full blown migraine which I NEVER get. Needless to say I spent a good part of the night on the cool tile bathroom floor trying to get rid of the headache, nausea, something else (which I will not disclose) and a fever.
I feel better today except I still have a slight fever and a dull headache. Talk about freak me right the hell out. I really thought that Todd might have to take me to the er...except I couldn't leave the bathroom.
Finally the headache somewhat subsided which lead to sleep. Off and on I slept with the most wildest dreams...
Well, I will take it easy for the rest of today and see how I feel tomorrow. Hopefully much better!
