Let Us Eat Cake


We have some important events to celebrate at our house this weekend!

Today is Aaron's 44th birthday. I honestly thank the heavens for that man every day of my life, so I'm especially looking forward to celebrating him today! Although, I still need to go buy the presents. (Busy week.)

Today, we are also celebrating Jack's Preschool Graduation. Since he has a late birthday, I have always planned on waiting until he was 6 to start kindergarten. But now that he is finished with preschool, it's obvious we are both ready for him to start kindergarten next year. He's all registered, and we have his 5 year old "shots" appointment next month. And while I'm a little bit sad that our baby is growing up (in just the blink of an eye he'll be graduating from high school) I'm also excited to move onto the next phase of life.

Of course, Monday we'll celebrate a rainy Memorial Day, and Tuesday will mark 10 years of marriage for us.  TEN years.  Sometimes it feels like yesterday, and other days it feels like we've been together all of our lives.  More to come on that.  But for now, we have some major celebrating of my favorite people to do!  Yay for happy days.

If I recall you did purchase one gift while we were in Seattle. I told you could save it for his birthday! Unless you returned it! :(

well since no one asked, what's with the gloves? just curious.
I was thinking the same thing the other day, it's your 10th anniversary and yet i don't remember you not being part of the family. guess that's the way it should be. you are an important part of our family - we love you.
your baby is going to start school - my (first) baby turned 44. i still remember his first day at kindergarten. it just goes by sooooooooo fast.
thanks for the post and happy celebrating!
love you.
