Happy Birthday, Miles!

April 19, 2010 2:37 pm

The month of April is better than Christmas for  Miles. Between Easter and his birthday, our house is over-flowing with toys.   Dying Easter eggs was still a messy experience.  Lyla also got in on the action and dyed her hands blue.  Miles hunted Easter eggs while Lyla napped this year.  The Easter bunny was very generous but for some reason he didn’t leave a chocolate bunny.  Maybe they were out at the grocery store by the time he made it go to shopping.

 Miles celebrated his birthday with a week of fun and sugar.  We started off with cupcakes with his Monday playgroup buddies. He requested doodle bug cupcakes.

 On his actual birthday, it was off to the bouncy house place and then lunch at Macaroni Grill with Nana, Daddy and Lyla.

 We had a low-key but large family birthday party for him at home.  A friend made his cake for me since all of my cake decorating supplies are packed away.  Miles had a wonderful time opening presents, playing with family, and of course, eating cake.  He didn’t really like it when we sang to him and ducked under the table until it was time to blow his candles out.

Pretty present :)

Update on the land:  The bank has our paperwork so now we are just waiting for everything to be approved.  The home owner’s association approved our plans, so that was a good step forward.  I’m learning through this whole process that I really need to work on my patience.  Waiting is driving me NUTS!  If all goes as planned we will put this house on the market on May 1st.
