Phil Turns 29

A cake for a king!

He caught up to me!

We celebrated last night because I have Bible study on Wednesday nights and I wanted to make a special birthday dinner.

We had ribeye steak on a bed of caramelized onions in a cream and blue cheese sauce, baked potatoes, and broccoli. Oh yes it was good but now on to cake part...

These two LOVE birthday cake!

Especially this guy and yes that is "The Biggest Loser" in the background.

Never mess with a pregnant woman and her fork...

...or a toddler with a fork.

Serious cake eating is taking place.

He wants more!

Well, almost time for bed so no more for the toddler.

I guess that he will just have to lick every crumb!

Now that is some good cake!

New Shoes

Two pairs of new shoes for Luke!

Not really "new" but new to us.

These are the cleats that were $3.50

And these shoes were $6.50

Once Upon a Child is a second hand chain store for children's clothing and maternity clothes. I like to go there every once in a while to check for gently used shoes for Luke! I love a deal and I actually liked shining the shoes up and making them look new. Luke loves them! He especially loves the cleats. What one year old wouldn't? Love it!

Oh NO!

Oh dear. I think that I need this.

Now that is some good marketing!

I especially wish that those two square marshmallows were melting in my mouth right now. UMMMMM...

...and maybe I need this stand too. Or maybe I just want one of those cupcakes...

Momma's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys?

Now are you intimidated by this cowboy?

All cowboys need the appropriate footware.

It is always better to error on the side of fashion.

You are intimidated, right??? Or is it charm?

For the record, I found him shuffling around like this.

I am the innocent one. It was not me okay? Promise. I cross my heart promise.

A pump is probably a better plate than cowboy accessory?

Now that's more like it!

An Everyday Occurrence

Lunchtime! As you see here, toast, cheese slices, green beans, grapes, milk, a sad doggie, and a care free toddler complete this daily routine.

A drooling dog lies in waiting...

...for a scrap of food. "An ort is a scrap of food" That is an example that I remember from ISTEP testing in elementary school. Why do I remember all of this stuff? much useless knowledge. Arg.

Sanibel is thinking "arg" too. The drool is eeking out !

Luke does not even notice.

Now he notices that I have the camera


"Mom, I want to take the pictures"

He has forgotten all about his lunch...

A big cheesey smile but notice that he is actually trying to peek out of his tiny eye slits to watch Sesame Street.

Love that smile!

Sanibel HAS NOT forgotten about the lunch!

It just hangs there

She resigns to the fact that her subtle snorts and sighs are getting her nowhere.

Okay, I wanted you to know that her patience was noted. Oh, and don't tell Phil because I can't follow the rules very well either.

How could I not?

Licked clean and then I don't even have to wash the plate. Back in the cupboard it goes! Shush. Hehe!

Elmo...Coming soon to a Halloween Near YOU!

My mom got Luke an Elmo costume!

How will we decide what he should be for Halloween?

Bean Cleaning

My mom, dad, and I picked this final batch of beans from their garden yesterday. We thought that they were done producing but we were so wrong. Look at all of these lovely green beans! I love 'em! We had fun picking them and I totally enjoyed cleaning them this afternoon! Oh, and I ESPECIALLY love smelling them simmer on the stove all afternoon!
