Happy Birthday, Jack!


I can't believe the little guy turned 2 yesterday!

I never thought I'd be so happy to see a child dive face first into a birthday cake.

Smile for the camera, Sweetie!

Wait, no, don't rub your--

Ah yes, this is what baths were invented for.

We had fun, just our little foursome. We don't live near family but they were with us via phone calls, packages, and pictures.

Happy Thursday!

(P.S. You probably caught a glimpse of our lovely primed-over wallpaper in the background. Actually this was a gift from the previous owners of this house, that I found beneath 2 other layers of wallpaper that had been painted over. And beneath that? Nothing but drywall. So many home improvement projects, so little time. Ahh, but I can't bear to think of that any longer. I think I'll have some more cake.)


  1. whoa, weird, kim! (cute kiddo, though!)

    weirder - last summer we primed over the wallpaper in our playroom! it would NOT come off. it's worked well so far!

  2. ha ha! I think we'll prime it again and then paint over it, seeing as how the wallpaper won't come off without ripping up the drywall. Glad the priming worked out in your awesome playroom (which I've been borrowing ideas from, by the way...will blog more about that another time!)
