Happy Birthday Logan!

Wow I can't believe my little man is 4! Here he is 4 years ago:

And here he is today:

OK, so I am not about to give up my website exactly quit my day job to become a cake decorator!

We had a good day, baked a cake and went seen the movie Madagascar 2 at the Michigan Movie Theatre, in downtown Jackson. Its a great old theatre built in the 1930's.

Before the movie, my oldest son and I baked the birthday cake. My son wanted a 3 tiered cake. And as he pulled out a large cake pan and a medium cake pan and finally my meatloaf dish for the "small" cake, I got the bright idea to make the 3 tier cake into a cars theme, since Logan likes that movie so much.

But of course the story doesn't end there, I haven't even gotten started yet. So M and finished decorating L's cake and I had to step away for a moment to get ready for the movies. I realized the birthday boy was missing and discovered the cake looking like this:

And one frosting covered birthday boy hiding under my kitchen table, I only wished I would have thought to take a picture of him hiding under there with frosting all over himself!

Frosty the snowman in our house

The last few days we have broken the record with our -25 to -30 tempatures - yeah lucky us. Anyway, my kids have been BOOORRREEEDDD since they can't go outside and have continued to pester me to no end. So I decided to put to use an idea I got from my son's preschool teacher Mrs. S.

Since its too cold to go outside, we brought the snow inside! Here are some pictures:

At first I was a little concerned about the mess they might make, (they are boys and any project they do has to involve messes of some sort) but to my surprise this was a fairly mess free project! Not to mention snow/water is an easy thing to clean up. We used cookie sheets with sides, and a couple of big mixing bowls to fetch the snow. The kids wore gloves to protect their hands. Overall a great Saturday afternoon project! I think we'll try this again and maybe I'll get brave and include food coloring next time, or maybe not!

An Afternoon of Family Fun

Here in our little corner of Michigan we were under a winter weather warning since Friday and received about 10-12 of inches of snow. After being snowed in all weekend, the kids needed an energy outlet and mom and dad needed a few mintues to rest. So we packed everyone up and went to the local indoor playground, called the Chelsea Treehouse. Ah, did I say mom and dad needed to rest? Yeah right, there wasn't much resting here, with the kids begging us to go down the slide with them, but I gotta admit it was fun! Here are some pics of the kids and the big kid AKA my husband having an afternoon of fun!

Trying to coordinate all of them sliding down at the same time :-)
The biggest kid and the littlest kid
D looking cute as usual!

Bubbly Toilet?

So I think my 4 year old has been feeling the middle child effects. His oldest brother is 8 and commands a lot of attention because he is ADHD and his youngest brother is 6 months old who also commands alot of attention because he is a baby. So my 4 year old has been doing some creative things to amuse himself while Mommy is busy with his brothers.

His latest creation - was squirting the foaming hand-soap (the kind that looks like shaving cream with you pump it) into our toilet! I went to check on his "potty progress" and to my dismay he was just finishing up pumping the last of the brand new bottle of "shaving cream soap" into the toilet bowl.

So I stood there trying to decide what to do. Do I go ahead and flush it? The bowl was nearly full of foam. I was thinking of how washers react to to much soap and overflow. Should I try to scoop it out some how? (YUCK) Then I got to thinking, where would I put it once I scooped it out? So I vetoed that idea quickly and decided to flush and was ready with paper towels just in case! To my surprise the toilet handled it like a pro and no overflow!
