It's an exciting day in our house as it's Ray's birthday today!! He turned a young 44 today and we had Chinese food for his birthday supper tonight. We will have birthday cheesecake tomorrow evening. I am going to take him out to dinner at the Broken Plate without kids, just the two of us! Looking forward to that.
Young Cole did not sleep at all today. I had hoped he would have a short nap at least but that didn't happen. In fact, when I went to get him out of bed he was standing in his crib butt naked! His clothes were thrown on the floor and his diaper was off, lying in his crib. Oh, did I mention it was a poopy diaper?!? Yup, that's why there are no photos of the event. I had to clean him up before I had a big mess on my hands. Thankfully he didn't sit down after he got his diaper off so there was no poop in his bed.
Peyton had a Celebration of Learning concert at school today. It was fantastic! She had a speaking part and did a fabulous job, I was so proud of her! Ray had come with us but he didn't see the concert. He dropped me at the school and took Cole with him to run an errand. Ray took her back to school at 6:30pm for the evening performance, he'll try to watch it then. It was nice to have him out with Cole and I got some nice photos of them together.
Once we arrived at home, Ray ordered the Chinese food and then left to see a client before picking up the food up. I worked on a scrapbook lo and the kids read/watched tv until the food arrived, oh the boys set the table for me. It is so great that they are now old enough to help me out around the house in so many ways.
The rest of the evening was taken up with correcting homework, cleaning up the kitchen, surfing the 'net as well and a bit of telly too! Peyton arrived back home at 8:20pm and she was tucked into bed by 8:35pm-record time! The one advantage of Cole not napping is that he was in bed by 7pm so the evening has been very quiet with him asleep.
Now I'm watching the rain fall, we needed it so badly, as I type. I hear my bed calling me so I'll put the leftovers in the fridge and then hop into bed. I'll sign off with a few images from today...
