I'm so behind. It's been a heck of a summer. Some good, some bad. It seems like this is just the way that life is becoming, and that makes me sad. Trying hard to remain optimistic. I think I'll ease into things by recounting pictures. In my haste to get Elle's first pictures up, I forgot Hero's birthday party pics - she invited a few friends over to Nana and Papa's for a pool party and tent sleepover in the back yard. This seems like kind of a scam to me LOL - so easy to have a party at someone else's house instead of mine. Hero requested a homemade pizza cake. It was super cute, until James got involved and decided that the frosting/pizza sauce was too pink and not red enough. Blue coloring paste does NOT make pink darker. It turns it purple (well duh, right?). So, she had liver colored pizza sauce on her pizza cakes. At least the intention was good.
