Three years old!

Wyatt turned three on Monday, and I realized it will be October until I have another two year-old. I rejoiced a little.

Wyatt and Jana both love to lick the beaters when I make...anything. This was the frosting for Wyatt's cupcakes.

Like her mother, Jana must have every speck from every surface of the beater.

This made me laugh, because I'm sure he gets this exact look from me on occasion.

Happy Third Birthday, Wyatt!

Trying out his new tricycle.

Everyone had fun with the huge balloons Lee got- especially Jana.

Camille thought Skeeter looked lonely napping by himself, so she gave him an Elmo to keep him company. What a thoughtful girl!

I was napping on the couch and woke up to Wyatt saying, "Mommy, we need to blow out the candles again!" I can't stop laughing at his 'smile' in this picture.

He found the box of candles, loaded them all into the remaining cupcakes, and carried them in to me so we could light and blow them out.

Trying to show us how old he is now. I guess we'll need to work on that.

Notice the candle burning there? That was all he wanted on his birthday- to carry it around, blow it out when he felt the urge, and then have me light it again so he could blow it out again later. He was SO happy!

The kids love this old Proclaimers CD, and almost every day Wyatt asks to listen to "five hundwed miles." Here he is singing along...and I have no doubt 8 or 10 years from now he'll be embarrassed about it. I think it's hilarious. :) He gets totally distracted by his candle at the end.

Nothing else new around here. I am surviving (barely) and SO excited to get out of town for a few days. Work has been insane the last couple of nights (we did 20 deliveries in 48 hours) and I'm in for another round tonight. So I'm going to nap.

Lots of love, Cadbury Cream Eggs, fresh Krispy Kremes, and invigorating runs in the spring sunshine to make up for them,

Springtime has been trying to come, but hasn't quite succeeded yet.

I can't quite put my finger on the reason why, but we are desperate for spring this year. We've been sunshine deprived for so long that poor Wyatt will get any little rays he can...even if it's still only 40 degrees outside!

He refused to put his coat and gloves on- at least he had his blanket.

Can't drive the cars on the deck yet, so he drives them on the snow.

This is my favorite. There's barely any sun at all, but he's sitting in the only tiny patch of grass to enjoy it. That's my boy!
