I still can't believe that Jake will be 10 years old in just a few days!!! Where does the time go? So this weekend we had his "Friend" Birthday party. He had two friends over to spend the night. We took them to The PlayStation in Trussville and out to eat for pizza. They had a blast. After a few rounds of laser tag and a competitive round of putt putt we went home for night swimming! Michael and I made it till about 12:30 and we assumed the boys would pass out soon as well. To our surprise we were woken up at 8 a.m. by 3 little boys would had not gone to sleep yet!!! They had stayed up ALL night long playing! I couldn't believe it. So, I got up, made breakfast and went down to tell them that it was ready and I found 3 little boys who were sound asleep! Luke & Levi's parents got them at 10:00, but Jake slept until 4:30 p.m. that day. He was exhausted! But, from his words...it was worth it. Here are some pictures of them finally passed out at 8:30 a.m. and a picture of his Birthday cake!
My name is Raven. I have been married to Michael for almost two years now. We have two kiddos...Jake (9) and Mary (7). Michael is the StepFather to Jake and I am the StepMother to Mary. To say the least it is a little crazy sometimes...but we wouldnt have it any other way! We are....Happily Dysfunctional!
Lord, help me to learn to spell without spellcheck, manage to visit all that visit me, and post regularly - all in 5 minutes a day, so that I can clean house and take care of my family. Help me to not look at every occurrence in my life as a blog post, and to quit taking pictures of weird things to share as well. Please Lord, help me to stop talking about my blog friends as though they are next door neighbors or someone I have known all of my life (even though I have known some for years). And help me dear Lord, to think of something witty and wise to post tomorrow.
