We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Thanks for the Help

This coming Thursday is my oldest son's birthday. He will be 3! I cannot believe it! I'll probably say that every time for his birthday. "I cannot believe he's 4...16...40!" In order to celebrate my 13 hours of labor and ultimately A's BIRTH of course, we had a party on the 19th. A good friend of ours has his birthday on the 20th so we decided to celebrate his day as well. We had our friends and family there. So hopefully each person felt like we were celebrating their day! Daddy M and I set this up about 2-3 weeks before the date. We bought all the yummy food and told people to come play with us and enjoy a nice day! I am glad we had enough food for everyone. There were little cousins there for A and E to play with as well as plenty of adults to keep track of all the kids.

Daddy M was stud. He lived about 70% of the time at the BBQ.

No smiling at the meat station. Its too manLy of a station for smiles. :) However as I was photographing M, I did catch a friend of ours in the background.
 Love it!
A and E took full advantage of the busy parents situation and dominated the food. You'll see a few pictures of fun cousin that came to play with us. We're so glad they got to be there.
I feel that A and E's shirts are fitting for their food massacre. We have the little A's shark and the little E's bull. :)

A party of course is nothing without a party cake! A loves Blue's Clue's so we made our cake blue. I'm not ingenious enough to order an actual cake that looks like Blue. Plus, we didn't want to spend the extra money on that. I think A was perfectly satisfied.

And so were his party observers/helpers. Next time we'll have to make a bigger cake to accommodate everyone's sugar tooth!

Check out the kid in the bottom right of the last picture. I don't even know WHO that is or why his eyes are buggin out of his head like that. haha. Although I do know E on the other side- chowing down on still more watermelon! And then cake once someone handed him a piece. Mmm MMM

The party was wonderful. We had some squirt guns that the kids and adults played with. :) I say that was worth the $6 we spent on them all. Our friend and the other birthday "boy" Chi... was massacred at least once in honor of being one year older. I guess getting sprayed down is better than getting spanked. Depending on who is doing the spanking that is. :P 

Toward the end of the party I noticed that I was not in any of the photos. So as proof that I WAS actually there. A and I took a picture together. It took us about three tries to get it right.... and even then, the right smiles are not lined up in the photos. So I guess that means we never got it right. But we still had fun taking the pictures!

So close A. We were so close.
