Double Birthday Bash

We celebrated the boys birthday this past weekend. While they are little and don't mind, We have a double birthday party. The theme was veggie tales. Not such an easy theme to put together these days. Veggie Tales is not as popular as they use to be 5 years ago. There was around 30 people there and 13 kids. My sister and her two boys and my sister in law and her son came in from SC. We rented a Moon Walk. It was freezing outside. And now the boys both have colds. We cleaned out the garage and set up the party inside. Robbie brought up the big screen TV from the basement and played veggie tales non-stop. I was able to go to the makers of veggie tales web site and find a few decorations. I made cup-cakes decorated like Bob and Twinkies decorated like Larry. The boys Godmother free-handed a cake with all the characters on it to read happy birthday so the boys would have something to blow out. Robbie wore a Larry shirt and I wore a Bob shirt. We had a Blast!!!!!

One step closer to normal!

Avery had his stitches taken out yesterday while I was at work. He did very well. He did not cry at all. He was a very big boy. Everyone thought his eye was part of his Halloween costume until they looked really close and saw it was real. His boo-boo looks really good now. Just some scabbing now and a little black eye. We can finally wash his hair tonight, after a week of no showering. I am pulling some extra shifts at work to help out with birthday parties, holidays and a lot of extra expenses. I am tired, but we need it. Robbie made the comment this weekend, it's been like the kids have separated parents recently, they are with one of us during the day and the other one at night. It's just for a short period of time. Hope everyone had a fun Halloween.

We had my mom and dad over for pizza on Friday night. Then, we dressed the boys in their costumes for Halloween. Avery was a fireman and Ayden was a doctor. We took both of the boys to our neighbor's house to trick-or-treat. Then Robbie took Avery to a popular neighborhood here in Macon to get more candy while Ayden and I stayed home to pass out candy to the kids in our neighborhood. I knew Ayden would not be able to keep up in the other neighborhood. It was great for both Robbie and I to spend one-on-one time with each of our boys.
