On Friday evening, we had a joint birthday party with Elijah and his friend Scotty. His mom, Sarah, is a professional photographer. I encourage you to visit her website: Little Trees Photography, especially if you live in San Antonio -- their new home as of this spring. All of the pictures below, our courtesy of Sarah. She's amazing. Micah, Sarah and Scotty were also one of the couples who joined us on our weekend in the snow.
(Elijah's personal creation. And yes, it's a dinosaur.)
The night before the party, we found out, at the last minute, that we had to go and get Scrubs and his kennel, weighed at the flight line for our move to the Azores. This meant no time for JB to make the cakes and left me to be the cake-maker the day of the party. I decided to let the kids help me. The cakes on the left have an "E" on it for Elijah and are the dinosaur he created. The cakes on the right have an "S" on it and Scout (which JB drew) -- Scotty's stuffed animal pal. The boys helped me to decorate the cupcakes. We had a great time!
I can't believe how grown up he looks here.
Ms. Logan is the "cool aunt" everyone wishes they had. My kids are all in love with her. Her husband is deployed and so she has been helping me out since Veronica's departure.

Stay tuned for an entire post on Isaac's bowling skills soon to come!
What would a party be without Peter?
