Nicholas is now five/Art show


Ladies and Gentlemen, my youngest child is now five.
Five.
I still am rolling in disbelief.
Because I felt like a bump on a log all day long I allowed
my five year old to watch "tartoons" for 4 hours straight while
I lay on the couch with aches, pains, and nausea.
He was pretty happy about spending his birthday morning with Mickey Mouse.
When I finally got up I went to the store to buy Nicholas a birthday cake. I felt fine about doing that. Usually I delight in making birthday cake creations for my lovelies, but not today and Nicholas didn't care, not one bit. Whew.

{6:30 am- so exciting!}

Then Nicholas wanted a Cesar salad.
That is what he got.

I am so lucky to live close to Utah's most amazing toy store.
Blickenstaff's to get the greatest gifts ever for Nicholas.
The staff was so helpful, especially since I went into the store asking for a 'robot'.
They found me a robot, a dang cute robot too.
That toy store is amazing. Have you been there yet?
If not, put it on your list for the holiday's.

Remember the amazing artist Steven Waggoner?
He has painted my babies and adorably called it "NieNie's Wee-Nies".
His work {and the paintings} will be featured tomorrow night.
