May is a crazy, busy time in our house. Besides Mother's Day, we have my birthday and William's, which is tomorrow. Oh, and what a day it's going to be! It's also flower picking time aplenty in our backyard...
...there is always something for Rosie to run around for, like her potty! Did I tell you she's completely, absolutely toilet trained, hooray!
There are always lots of big smiles just for being outside...
...and hats and sunglasses aplenty! (did I use 'aplenty' twice in this blog so far, cool!)
...and not to forget the most exciting of all, the Bottle Rocket Brigade has begun once again.
My birthday, which began at 6am when I got up to write, was so much fun. Scott and the kids spoiled me silly and despite the hectic schedule of William's school trip, Scott's whirlwind meetings and rocketing temperatures, I'd say the cake and ice cream kept us all pretty cool and connected.
These are new Jamie Oliver cupcakes I'm making for William's party tomorrow, from the new America book. The cake is going to be chocolate, but with a splash of red food colouring, interesting.
And right now in the room beside me, this is my boy. Playing his first little video game on Scott's new toy and eating a bag of mini eggs as the excitement for tomorrow's big celebration builds and builds. He's so close to being 5 he can touch it! Tomorrow's going to be great, but as far as today goes, I think for him this is pretty much bliss, and bliss aplenty. (3, I did it :)
