Due to busy schedules of our families, we were not able to get everyone together for one birthday party for Blake, so we ended up having two! So there are a few pictures from each that I'd like to share.

Since it was FREEZING (literally) outside, I thought it best to do it all inside. Of course it was nothing like true camping, but the kids and I still had a ton of fun! (That's all that matters, right?!)
The kids have never slept in the living room before overnight. They were SO excited and felt super special being able to stay up with me. I was equally happy to have their company while their Daddy was away. :-)
We'll definitely be doing more indoor campouts in the future! Next time I'll take more time to plan to make it a little more like camping ;-)

HE did great! No tears and went with his teachers no problem after hugging his Daddy and I.
His teacher had a good 8 other parents sign in their little ones, but for some reason when she got to me she asked ME if I was going to be okay...just ME...and I thought I was doing good at that point! LOL! But walking out of the school without him for the first time was tough. Unfortunately, with the new security at the school, we were unable to go into the class and take pictures of his first day....
...so I took a picture of his bus coming up the road to make up for it-LOL! I had to hold back tears waiting for it. All I kept thinking was how lonely it was waiting...I had Blake with me last year to wait for Morgan to come home...
Of course all of it was no big deal for my little guy. He came home and told me all about his first day. We had a special lunch of french toast followed by a dessert of chocolate zucchini cake that I made especially for Blake for his first day of school.
A little while later we had to go pick up Morgan from school. Listening to a preschooler and kindergartener discuss school and seeing each other in the hallway was PRICELESS! Had to have been one of the cutest conversations I've heard from them :-)
We then had an after school snack of pencils!!!
They're made from a cheese stick with a Bugle and piece of raisin on the top and a cut out piece of bologna on the bottom.
It was the kids first experience with Bugles, so I had to show them had to make them into fingernails...
...they thought that was pretty neat! :-)
I'm still emotional over them both being in school. I'm keeping quite busy while they're away right now to keep my mind off it as much as possible. And Rich says NO to having another baby, so I'm thinking chocolate...LOTS of chocolate...will be a good way to ease the pain instead. ;-)
