Looooong Day, But a Fun One

April 4, 2009

We started out early this morning getting ready for our annual garage sale.  Our whole neighborhood participates and I was totally dreading it, but it was actually quite fun.  Kasen and I had a walk around the sales and we even bought a little scooter for her for THREE dollars!! :)   Hands down, that was THE best three dollars I have ever spent.  She adores that thing.  I did take lots of pictures of her riding it this evening, but they’ll have to wait until later.  After we packed up the last bit of stuff that didn’t sell, we all headed inside and got ready to go to Connor’s 4th birthday party.

Kasen loves Connor, they used to attend Mother’s Day Out together.  The teachers there told us that they were inseparable, but I’m thinking that he has finally outgrown her just a bit. :(    Even though she didn’t get as much attention as she would have liked from Connor, she  did have a GREAT time at the party.  When asked at dinner tonight, “What was your favorite part of the day?”  She replied, “Eating mud cake.” LOL  Connor’s mom made this awesome dump truck cake that looked like a pile of dirt, all in the theme of a construction party which was sooo cool.  Kasen was very concerned that she was eating dirt, but I had to really convince her that it was pudding and cake mixed together.  On the way home, she kept saying that Connor’s Mom was just teasing her that it was dirt, because it was really cake! LOL  Then, when asked what her worst moment of the day was, she replied, “When I hit Connor.” :(   Yep, she grabbed her little stick and hauled off and wacked him on the back.  He didn’t know what hit him, until he turned around of course and saw the offender.  That landed a pretty pouty time-out for the princess.  Other than that, she had a fantastic day.  Brad and I couldn’t believe that she still didn’t go to bed until almost 9:00 p.m.  She was so wired when we arrived home, that we went out front while she rode her new scooter, and then we went out back where she played on her swingset.  She’s like the Energizer Bunny – she just keeps going and going and going . . . . .

Here’s a pic of the birthday boy today – love those eyes!!
