This was take number 23, so please excuse the hyper ending. Paxton had just gotten home from school and Lorelei is at the age where she chooses not to be directed by anybody!

The cupcake cones. I got this great idea from my friend Suzanne who made some like this for Lorelei's birthday in the spring. They turned out really cute and are easy for the kids to pick up and eat. The only difficulty was carrying them to the school without them tipping over!
Paxton's table at school.
The other table at school. Great ratio- 10 kids and 2 teachers-we do like that!
Paxton and Ms. Venable
Lorelei enjoying a cupcake before I took them to Paxton' s school.
One of the gifts from Grandmama and Grandaddy was this really cool speaker that can change your voice any many ways- it's also super loud!
This morning, Paxton with his presents at home.
Pirate Paxton. He begged for this eye patch all week and then he wore for like 2 seconds at the party- oh well!
The Peter Pan and Captain Hook Pirate Ship Cake- turned out too cute!
Don't you think I am so talented? . . .
See how I took the time for detail of the ship even in the back. . . took my hours upon hours . . .
Ok, you got me, no I did not make this. Obviously compared to my master skills on the cupcakes- Publix made this- Paxton loved it. The manager at Chuck E Cheese gave us extra tokens for the best cake award!
TJ, Ryder and Jonah watching Paxton race his car.
Aunt Jessica and Luke playing basketball- is Micah in there too?
Lorelei and Katie, the only two princesses at the party. Katie and Lorelei are so cute, giving hugs and love to each other!
A little birthday dance with the big guy himself, Chuck E Cheese.
Blowing out the candle- my camera is so slow it wouldn't actually flash in time to take the picture of him blowing it out but you get the idea.
So I also wanted to take this space to tell my sweet husband how much I appreciated the wonderful blog he did for me the other day. I love it! He took me out for a very nice QUIET dinner, just the two of us, for my 30th birthday. It was just what I needed!

This morning after breakfast we were singing "If you're happy and you know it" and she added a new verse. She sang, "If you're happy and you know it pick up crumbs." Hmmmm, I wonder why she would possibly say that? She must think I am one Happy Lady then!

In other Lorelei news, last week we went to the GI doctor for a check up and they dismissed us!! Yeah! They figure there is nothing else to do and that maybe she's just going to be small! I know, go figure after all those months and two years of worry, agony and tests! She is very small, 23.6 lbs and 32 inches. I don't know where that falls on the charts percentage wise but I am sure it is small. We are supposed to keep checks with our pediatrician but we don't have to go back to the GI anymore! Yeah, what a blessing! After her visit, her sweet little doctor wanted to take her upstairs to meet all the office staff and other doctors who weren't working at the hospital. One lady even gave Lorelei a brand new bear, just because she was so cute!! Lorelei of course decided to be shy and at one point she put her head up against the wall and said "This is terrible!" Oh, the drama, I wonder who she gets that from??!!!
Below are some pics that I took the other day of the kiddos. I thought they were too cute not to share!
