i missed you & a birthday boy

January 13, 2011

my blog feels sad and lonely and i’ve been missing you. our vacation to the mountains was invigorating and both long enough and not long enough at all. Christmas was a blessing. a joy. i hope yours was too. i missed you. i missed you blog. i missed you readers. i missed the click, click clicking that is the late night rhythm in my head. i missed the pouring out of my thoughts onto the digital paper and hoping someone out there felt it was worthy enough for reading, dare i say, a comment? i missed you.

as much as i’d like to, i’m not going to back track and drag you through Christmas all over again. just know that it was wonderful and white and full of wonder and family and love. and just as our plane hit the runway in phoenix, my mind had to hop on over into birthday mode.

i’m not going to lie, it’s hard to get into that mode right after Christmas. when the newness of all their toys hasn’t worn off and the magic of Christmas and santa still lingers on their little lips (owen, “it’s still a little Christmas, right mama?”). but we did it. we rocked it in the best birthday boy fashion kicking the day off with birthday donuts…

…and a powdered sugar smile.

isn’t it funny how life and celebrations revolve around food? or maybe that’s just our family. at any rate, lunch for the birthday boy consisted of hotdogs and cheeseballs at the park. sorry, no really great pictures of the picnic. what it really broke down to was me chasing emmitt away from the duck pond, trying to eyeball two kids at the ultra-busy park (doesn’t anybody in our town work?!) and feeding the birds cheeseballs (which i did manage to get a picture of…still trying to figure out how i managed that while hollering after emmitt and catching owen’s ‘birthday’ pop from spilling for the umpteenth time…) it’s a cool pic though. i’m making the picnic sound hectic but sometimes hectic is fun. and that’s what we had : fun!

owen was beyond exhausted by the time it was time for cake, but what a little sweetie…happy birthday big boy! we love you, we love you, we love you!

after birthday snugglebugs…
