My cake:

and flowers...

from my sweet boys.
Thank you boys! I love you!

I had a great birthday with my great neighbors and a visit from my parents and my friend Jenny. The weather was bad most of the day, but by the evening it quit raining and was decent.
Thank you everyone for making my birthday such a great day!
And a great big thanks to my neighbor Wanda who cooked us bulgogi for dinner!
On to other news, the boys food usually looks like this:
(broccoli and cauliflower puree)
But lately we've been practicing eating with our fingers more and more:
(please note the floor!!)
We're getting better, but my oh my the mess we make!

I finally put up all the birdhouses from last fall. This weekend I finished up all the yard work, so it is so nice to look out over a perfectly manicured yard and see the houses out too.
The one Uncle Johnny built.
The boys enjoying the manicured lawn.
Taylor getting his perfect attendance award.

My blue eyed Brayden.
Carter fell asleep in the floor, so I moved him to a boppy.
Then I looked up and Brayden was out too!

Carter puts any and everything in his mouth now and carries it around like a puppy. Socks, toys, clothes, anything he can find.

This is one of my favorite pictures, ever, of Tucker. It's a shame it has the big stroller and all our shoes in the background. I need one of those photo editing software programs so I can delete it out!
Carter stealing a flower as we pass.
Brayden grabbing another flower.
Carter got too hot and every time I'd stop and (and thus the breeze stopped) he'd get mad.

I was taking pictures using different photo modes on my camera, trying to find the best one, so some of the colors are funky...again, I need some sort of photo editing software.
Now, for my biggest little man. I am so proud of him.

This weekend was absolutley beautiful. Saturday I was stuck in testing for over half the day. Mamaw came and kept the boys while Wade and Taylor went to baseball practice and pictures. When I got home I had lots of school work to do. As soon as it was time for the boys to eat dinner, I took lots Nyquil and went to bed.

Sunday, sick or not, we had to get out! So, we went to the park for a nice walk and to feed the ducks, then we took Taylor to the mall to this bungie jump thing.
Evidence that we needed to get out:
So out we got:
The jumpy thing:
Pictures from Friday before we went to Auburn for dinner:
Oh, Brayden won't be gummin his birthday cake afterall. He has a tooth! Almost 2 actually. His bottom 2 are breaking through, finally!
Carter has and Tucker both have 4. I thought Tucker had 5 when they were all just popping through, but the front 2 have grown in and the other one beside it that I thought was there too hasn't, it's still right there under the surface. So, we have a grand total of total of {almost} 10 teeth.
