It's my baby boy's birthday! And Saturday was Dustin's, so we are just about sugared out over here -- just in time for Halloween!
Dustin's birthday was unplanned, just as he wanted it. We went out to breakfast, then he went to the gym and attempted to get some work done in the garage. That night we went out to dinner -- not where I had made reservations -- and then Christmas shopping -- how lucky am I to get to do my favorite activity n HIS birthday? After that we headed over to Noah and Jill's rockin' Halloween party. The games were super fun. I'm going to have to steal the Remember When game if I can ever get my act together. There were some really great costumes too -- I loved Noah and Jill as Dog the Bounty Hunter and Beth the most.
Kate aka Nicole Richie, Jill as Beth, Rodeo Queen Katherine, me as Wilma, Janel the Kitty Cat and Casey as a Gypsy.
Dustin did manage to be on the winning team for one of the games, so we came home with a Golden Spoon gift card.
Today I celebrated Nate's birthday by feeding him oatmeal for breakfast, shipping him off to a neighbor's for the morning while I volunteered at Ellie's school and wrapped the Christmas gifts we bought on Saturday. By the time he got home, he had a whole list of family that wanted to wish him Happy Birthday, so we spent an hour on the phone and put him down for a nap.
I'm not that mean, though. I did make him an awesome Thomas cake, which he loves, and we're having pizza for dinner while watching The Nightmare Before Christmas -- all of Nate's favorite things: Pizza, cake, Thomas, and a Halloween movie.
Now that the birthdays are over, and Halloween is almost done, I'm getting so excited for Christmas just around the corner. I can't believe how fast this year is going!
Oh, and warning -- gross photo ahead! This is Sadie enjoying Nate's birthday cake.
