Birthday Cake

My niece, Danika, and Rance's birthdays are coming up really soon so we are having them a party on Sunday afternoon at the in-laws. (This is Frank's younger sister's daughter.) {You can see what I'm getting her for her birthday here - you will have to scroll down near the bottom of the post.}

Here is the cake that I made for them. It's more of a family get-together, with birthday cake than a party. We are having hamburgers and hot dogs, chips and drinks - very simple.

My other SIL (one of Frank's older sisters) is bringing her inflatable thingy (not sure what it is called). It has a water slide and things. The kids really enjoy this. This is also the last weekend before school starts on Monday - sort of an end of summer bash.

Playing in the water while it is still warm enough is always a hit with the kids (it's fun watching them too).

Well, today is our MOPS group's Scrapbook Luau (fundraiser) and I will be gone all day, then this evening I am helping my dad, tomorrow morning is church so I had to make the cake last night.

Katy gave us a sneak peek on one thing that we will have the opportunity to do there - check it out here.

Sorry if this sounds really scattered, but I am trying to get this posted before I have to leave for the Scrapbook Luau. I'm afraid that I won't get to post again until maybe Monday.

Anthony is starting Pre-K on Monday - please keep us (me) in your prayers. If I had to work and he would be at daycare anyway, Pre-K wouldn't be that big of a deal to me (that was the situation with Champ), but being a SAHM I'm not really ready to let go of Anthony. I am having a hard time with this. If it wasn't for the fact that Anthony wanted to go so badly - it wouldn't be hard (I wouldn't send him). He is so ready, he will love it (which is good). I've never had much, if any, one on one time with Rance so this could be a good opportunity for Rance too.

They grow up so fast and are kids for just a short amount of time that I don't want to rush it. Anthony has now started taking showers (instead of baths) like his dad and older brothers (he tells me he's big now). He had me cut his hair last night - like his dad's and his brother's (he no longer has the 'little boy' look). This is too much too fast for me. I am really struggling. I know it's going to happen, but so soon????????

I'm tearing up just thinking about it! I have only ONE year left with my last baby at home, he will start Pre-K in the Fall of 2010 and I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, I know how much he'll enjoy being around other kids HIS age (not older) and learning (he already wants to "do homework" and "read" with his brothers) and I know I'll enjoy the consecutive hours of peace and quiet, for a time, but I'm stuck on what will I do with myself when I get to feeling the blues. I just don't want to take this next year for granted!
