James turned the big #3 on May 14th!
He wanted a Diego cake and I didn't want to get into that. So a few days before I started to give him a few ideas like a farm or a football...and that is as far as I got. He wanted a football cake. Yippee, for me! So I added a few various balls for extra eats. We had a wiener roast in the backyard and just played all afternoon. It was the best day, so sunny and warm, and the kids just played and played.
And yes, if you recall he did have a football jersey cake last year with a backyard wiener roast and I sure hope we can do it again next year!
We got him a new 2 wheel bike and he has been riding it pretty good but he much prefers his training wheels on the ol one. So I won't push the 2 wheeler but it sure is fun to see him go on that bike. I only have pictures on Derek's phone of him riding it, so maybe next time.
Well, a little bit about this James boy.
-he will talk your ear off and tell any thought that comes in his head
-therefore, he is a 'storyteller' of the untrue nature...
-he loves soccer and baseball and football and basketball and all that
-also loves dressups and dolls and most things Alli likes
-he is such a good brother to Alli, most of the time...
-he has a neighbor friend across the street and they are inseparable some days, it's cute. they crack me up and also make me nervous with what they think they are capable of.
-favorite foods are hot dogs, hamburgers, sushi, pickles, milk, vegetables and fruit and well most everything. oh and SODA!
-bike rides to the park are his favorite thing to do these days, he likes the bike ride over more than the park lately
-if dad is around, he wants dad and rarely me
-loves to sing and dance. his fav songs right now are anything black eyed peas and the beatles
-he has been wearing shorts pretty much everyday for the last 2 months or so minus some church days (not all...) I think there was a day or 2 of sweatpants in there, but not on the snow days
-speaking of, he dresses himself everyday. it is just not worth trying to get him to wear what I want, hence the shorts. So if you saw me around town with a child in shorts with boots in the snow, well, don't judge, he said he was hot.
-he's getting better now that we spend a lot of time outside, but he changes his clothes up to 6 or 7 times a days, not cool in the laundry department
Ok, that's a good enough list for now. James is such a great kid. He makes me laugh everyday. He makes the funniest facial expressions. I just can't get enough of him. I want to cuddle him every day for the rest of his life, so far he still lets me so I will do!
We had a ridiculously fun weekend visiting Susie for a while and then in Okotoks with Brooke and Brady bustin' on their family, but I'm actually related so it was all good! We 'camped' on his parents acreage. I got my camera out on Saturday morning and my battery was dead and so was Brooke's. So sad because there was quading, and dirt biking, and sleeping in the trailer and campfires, and garage saleing (i scored by the way) and a petting zoo and everything in between!
Phew. I'm done.
