Toothsome Tuesday

What a day!

I GOT THE JOB!
HAPPY DANCE!


Adorable Hubby got a job, and we got a free meal at a real restaurant tonight to learn about the product! Yay!

We have verbal confirmation that we are foster licensed! Now we' ll have 8 sons, time to rearrange bedrooms, what fun!

We had yet another baseball game, more awesome t-shirts on Mr. Pithy Pants. You'll have to wait until Friday!

And.

#5 celebrated his eighth birthday.

He took a few self photos of his freshly showered self.

The first thing you notice about this sweet boy are his gorgeous eyes! He was my most wide awake wide eyed baby at birth. After a failed induction on May 1st he came into the world late Saturday night before Mothers Day. No crying, he just pooped on the doctor, who quickly handed him to me, then looked around the room with huge blue eyes.

#5 is such a friendly, loving boy! He'll give a big hug to anyone, he even lets our kooky neighbor lady love on him.

#5 asked for a lemon cake for his birthday. Yum,

Lemon Cake

I mix and bake 2 lemon cake mixes according to directions in my large Pyrex pan. We don't do 1 measly cake mix round these parts.

While the cake is still hot I poke holes all over the cake with a knife then pour lemon glaze over the whole thing. Lemon glaze is made by blending three cups powdered sugar and 1/2 cup real lemon.

So good!

Happy Birthday #5 and happy Tuesday everyone!

Doing a hormonal teary eyed happy dance for you! Oh so excited!

Happy Birthday #5!

My first thought on the photos was, that's 1 weeks worth of cake for us and one serve each for Boy Family. Even before I read what you said.

So excited that you'll have a 'new addition' to your family soon. I've been praying!

Happy (late) Birthday to #5. He's so stinkin' cute! And just wondering... are you becoming a foster parent to a boy you (and I) know? Or starting over fresh? Either way... good luck!
