As of March 20th it all be came first born turned nine!  Where the time went I don't know, I'm as lost as you are on that one.  I sniffed a little and have had a few moments the last week or two where I got verklempt.                                             

Here is Ian with his birthday cake...with out fail he always orders/wants an ice cream cake.  I can't remember the last time he asked for a regular cake.
                                                                Ian's Army cake.
 Present time!  He liked the card he was opening because it was a music card and it was a Looney Tunes card...funny what was big when I was kid is now big for Ian.  Weird!
 If you look really closely he's stuffing money he got in his birthday card in his pocket.  He did this several times, I'm not sure his eyes could bug out anymore.  Especially when all was said and done with the gifts and he had a chance to count it.
 This pretty much sums it up with Ian and his birthday glory!  This money is burning a hole in his pocket!! Tonight he asked me if tomorrow after school I could take him shopping.  I had to tell him was a school night!
 He got a pair of MUCH needed pj's...I'm almost positive he's had a growth spurt in the last month.  I've had to buy him more pj's and more jeans and his shirts are looking a little short...I'm running out of hand-me-downs for this kid!
 We got Ian Mega Mind the movie...he loved it.  I, however, thought the movie was a dud.  The movie Despicable Me was FAR superior to that movie!  As long as he liked it right??
 Ian was making me chuckle...constantly had his hands in his pocket fiddling with his new found wealth.  I can also see the wheels churning in his head about all the possibilities that are now open to him.
I think overall Ian had a good birthday.  It's still a little surreal that he's 9...I'm still speechless when I say it or write it.  My mom says I have to let it go and let him turn 9...I still say it's not right and it doesn't feel right...but she might have something too.  Time will tell I guess!

Happy Birthday Ian!


  1. Happy Birthday Ian! I can't believe he's 9 either!

I See You Visitors

So I can see that people are seeing my posts but no one is leaving comments.  Which of course is going to lead to this question. .. who is visit in this page??? Chime in and let me know who you are!!!

Not much is going on here and yet it feels like I'm the whirlwind kind of busy. Running to and fro to  appointments and whatever else. There are less than 3 weeks left until school starts... man that went fast! OK that's really just how I feel at this moment . Ha! Most of the time I'm ready for them to be back in school on the first day of summer.

We have some birthdays coming up. .. my mother in laws, my husband and then Dru.  Tomorrow is my mother in laws and husband's birthday. I have zero idea what to buy her for her bday...I asked and she said world peace. Ummm sorry I can't make that happen because I can't even manage to get peace to happen between my boys!!! My husband doesn't enjoy birthdays which makes it hard for the rest of us birthday celebrators.…
