Going through old pictures today, I found this one from Christmas of 2008. I had a one year old and a two and half year old. Well, if that picture doesn't make you warm and fuzzy inside, then I just don't know.

I don't have to be crafty. My friends do it for me. And anytime I want something, I just ask my incredibly talented group of friends. Seriously, ask my friend Kim about the time she posted pictures on her blog of a Valentine's day wall hanging she had made. She had to make me one too. And I have no shame in asking.

So for Kendall's birthday, I set out to enlist the help of some of my most talented friends. My friend Jamie (You can look her up on facebook, her business name is Wishful Baking) made these adorable cupcakes for Kendall to take to school for her birthday. They're little Sheriff Woody stars and Jessie hats.


Awhile back (like in March), I asked my friend, Deidra, if she would be interested in making Kendall's birthday cake. She said she would and when Kendall wanted a Jessie party, I emailed a few ideas to her. Then I forgot what I emailed to her and put my total faith in her. When I saw the cake, I screamed. I mean, is that cute or what? I think it meant more to me than my wedding cake did.

In case you're wondering why it says, "Happy Birthday Kendall and Aaron" on it, Kendall and her uncle almost share a birthday and he likes to complain about how he always got the shaft because his birthday is so close to Christmas. So now he can't complain anymore.

Here are both my babies at Kendall's party. Cason is already working on his junior high boy smile. And in case you are from this area, and you are asking yourself if Kendall's birthday party was at Johnnies, Yes, yes it was. It's her favorite restaurant and she has somehow convinced her grandparents to take her there every time they baby sit. She started asking to have her party there back in October. And it saved me from cleaning house and cooking. So there you go.

Good thing her party is over. Now I can relax for awhile. Oh wait, no. Christmas is Saturday.

Happy 3rd birthday, Kendall.

I love you more than ice cream.

Cason: Mom, what's the name of this song?

Me: "Do You Hear What I Hear?"

Cason: What?

Me: "Do You Hear What I Hear?"

Cason: Hear what? I don't hear anything.

Me: No, that's the name of the song.

Cason: What's the name of the song?

Me: "Do You Hear What I Hear?"

Cason: WHAT? HEAR WHAT?

Me: No, listen to me. The name of that song you asked about is "Do You Hear What I Hear?" That's it's name.

Cason: What song?

Me (gritting teeth): Nevermind.

Cason: What? WHAT? Oh! THAT song! Oh, ok.

Me: Yes, the name of it is, "Do You Hear What I Hear?"

Cason: Why didn't you just say so?

Hi all!

Why haven't I been posting?

Well, really no reason other than being busy bossing around the two short humans that live with me. That seems to take a lot of my time. Christmas is upon us. I know this because me and my short humans almost got run over 8 times in the WalMart parking lot yesterday. I have to say, my house looks awesome this year for Christmas. Those of you that know me well know that I am *slightly* particular about the decor in my abode. I haven't really enjoyed how I decorated for Christmas the past couple of years but I got some new stuff and it's the bomb.com this year.

Also, in addition to Christmas being upon us, so is a birthday. My baby will be three (!) in a couple of weeks. Not sure who told her she could do that but she has to stop it. Last night she and I went to go see Tangled and got a cupcake from Pinkitzel. It's amazing how much more talkative she is when her brother isn't around monopolizing the conversation.
