my adventures

There was a little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good, she was very good indeed, but when she was bad, she was horrid.

My big boy turns 3!

"Is it my birthday again? Already? Where does the time go?" "Behind us --or in front. It depends on which way you are looking."   ~David Eddings (Belgarath the Sorcerer)

Alex's 3rd birthday was this past weekend.  Here is a collage of pictures of him - going clockwise from the top left: Day 1, 1 Year, 2 Years, 3 Years.

Here's a picture from right after he blew out his candles.  He's saying "More fire!"

And finally, here's a couple pictures of what happened when Daddy left him unsupervised for approx 5 minutes and he found the cake mix I had intended to use for his birthday cake (no judgements, I was pressed for time):


  1. First, happy birthday Alex.

    Second, I saw your parents today in the store and they told me the fun tale of Alex deciding to make his own cake, and the other items he'd managed to get out in that short of a time... oh how I laughed in that "so been there" way.

    This is why I buy their cake ready made from the store!

  2. I'm so glad you got a picture of Alex's 3rd birthday eve! Maybe he'll be a food network star! We love our grandson. Gram and Pa

  3. Oh dear... I've so been there! And hey, no dissing on the cake mix from a box... I think they're the best!
