For my birthday, Jason took the boys, without me knowing, to the pottery plate painting place and each of the boys created a plate just for me. jack used his hand to make the "4" and then made his hand into a circle for the "0." He wrote the "I love u" all by himself!
Sam drew a picture of me for the "0" and has flaming candles on the "4." These were two of my favorite presents I received this year!
Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes and advice! It was so nice of everyone to remember me and it did help with the transition of going into my next decade a bit easier.

Before going to Arizona, I knew I would want to put together a scrapbook of the trip. So I am challenging myself to create one while we are on the trip...I KNOW!! I am using an 8x8 American Crafts album. I have already cut the paper to size using last years K and Company summer line. I am also taking some matching card stock to mat pictures...if needed. I also had all these embellishments in my stash (also from K and Company) to use on the pages. I added empty 6x6 page refill pages in case I need them for some "junk" from the trip - brochures, menus, etc. I cut white paper to 6x6 squares for the boys to draw on while on the trip. I will show you how far I got when I get back...no matter what it looks like!!
PS - don't worry I didn't pack any scissors!! :)
PSS - To my MN friends...like my bag in the background!!?? :)

Yesterday I took a picture of every monkey that Jack owns, so I can make a little monkey album for him about these guys. He walked in while I was doing this and wanted a picture with his family!! How could I say no?? So, Jack got himself all situated with his family: "orang" around his neck and others on his lap.
We are only missing two monkeys...Jellybean, who is about the size of a jellybean and Pongo. Jelly bean is so small, we think she got flipped somewhere and will be located at some point. We think that Pongo has taken off - he had enough of the cold weather. Unfortunately, he was missing an arm, so his "escape" may have been jeopardized. In other words, I have no clue where those monkeys could be!

This is Jack when he saw the paint for the first time. He sat there looking at it (I was hoping to capture an excited Jack) and then he said, "This is no Kermit green. I think you will have to paint it over." I did some fast talking and he does like the color of his room now. I just had to get a Kermit green lamp, mirror, bedspread.....
He told me he wanted to sleep near the legos (above his head.) He also brought in a couple of books (lower left hand corner) and three pairs of pjs (in front of the books.) He slept in there every night last week and then back to his room on Friday. He told me he was going to sleep there for four nights...he wasn't joking!
