"I French Kissy You Mama!" and Other Fun Stuff!

You're probably taken aback as much by the title of this post as I was when my 4 year old said it to me! And then he did THIS:
We laughed hard and I grabbed the camera! Thankfully, he has no earthly idea what French kissing actually is, and I'm happy to keep it that way for a long time to come! I think it's almost as cute as whispered kisses.

It was a busy, busy weekend. We had a big birthday party on Saturday. Kevin has been asking since December to have "Josh, the Magic Man" at his birthday. I think he must be Josh's #1 fan! I met Josh a few years ago at our church's fall festival. He amazed me with a card trick. Amazed. Then in December we took the family to see Josh in concert to raise money for MD. Spectacular! We were not disappointed on Saturday either! Josh had us all wanting more! (Thanks Josh!)

Yes, I made the cake. No, I don't take orders. However, if you are a friend, and you ask nice, you might just get one for your special occasion.

And then there was Easter, though I prefer to call it Resurrection Sunday.

We had my best friend, Penny and 2 of her girls for the weekend. If you notice the eggs, you might wonder why I have an egg with the name "Jim" on it. At the same time Penny and I (dyeing eggs after the kids had done theirs and gone to bed) had the same idea of making an I <3 you egg to our husbands. Her husband Jim is in Iraq currently, serving our nation's Army. And we all <3 him for his service and his family for their sacrifice as well. May he return safely.

This little guy LOVED finding eggs. Though he didn't really get that they were eggs, but he liked finding the "balls" all over the room! Mostly though, he liked eating the candy! His candy and everyone else's! It won't be so adorable in the future. And let's just say, candy for breakfast does NOT make for a happy baby during the traditional family photo following the Resurrection Sunday services. Nope, not at all!

See what I mean? Normally, I don't include family pets in the family photo, after all, his outfit doesn't really match. But, Lucifur (AKA: Louie) was NOT going to give up his comfy spot on the couch for anyone. Neither did he want anything to do with the screaming baby on the big man's lap. Nope, not at all!

Blessings to you from our family to yours!
