Happy Birthday Meg


We celebrated Meg’s birthday this year with a surprise party / sleepover. She requested a surprise party this year. Every once in awhile we would ask her what kind of cake she wanted or something, and she would reply “I’m not having a party this year, unless someone throws me a surprise party ;).” The surprise mostly worked, although some of her friends spilled the beans during school. Clare led the girls in making bath bombs. Sarah did the girls nails. We had pizza and got out the chocolate fountatin. They all had a great time.

For her actual birthday Dave and Ellen came over and we had ravioli and lemon cake with chocolate frosting.

Happy birthday Spencer

Spencer turned 9 yesterday! On Monday we had a party at Boondocks fun center with his friends. Yesterday we celebrated at home. He wanted to make grilled cheese and an ice cream cake, so that is what we did. He is getting pretty good at making grilled cheese.


We had a bit of a fight about going to sax lessons on his birthday, but eventually he acquiesced, and his teacher taught him happy birthday, which he picked up quite quickly

Pierced ears

Meg’s big present for Christmas this year was to get her ears pierced. We finally got around to doing it today, while Spencer was at a birthday party. She was very brave, and didn’t shed a tear.
