Happy Birthday Faith and other News!

We celebrated Faith's birthday last Saturday!!  

She chose a Butterfinger cake.

We made some brownie batter dip for a snack. 

She invited 7 friends to come over for her party.

The crew (and Matthew)

We went to Laser Tag! 

Waiting for their turn. 

About to play.

In between games they spent some time in the arcade. 

After laser tag we came home for lunch.  

We had pizza. 

The girls painted their nails. 

There were presents

and cake. 

She had a lot of fun!  

In other news . . . 

Matthew likes to help carry in the groceries.  I asked him to turn around so I could take a picture of him.  

Tuesday is pizza night around here lately - so Tuesday's you can find us at Papa Murphy's

Matthew likes to run back and forth while we wait for our pizza.  

Hmmm - what's the secret?  

Faith got a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble from her friend.  So on Sunday we went before church to browse for books.  

Superman was there.  

Seriously.  Check out the red capes on the socks.  

In even other news . . . 

James completed his classroom portion of DRIVER'S ED!!  So, he's waiting to be scheduled for the behind-the-wheel portion of the class.  Hopefully it will be soon.  

This week is International Kids Conference at church.  It's like regular camp except that it's here in Baton Rouge and the kids will be sleeping at home.  I'll be volunteering in the kitchen in the evenings.  James will be playing piano/keyboard in the morning services.  Andrew, Jon, Faith, Alyssa and James will be gone all day on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  I'm planning to institute a mandatory nap time those afternoons for me and the little boys.  Wish me luck!!
