Simoen's Birthday

So here are few pictures from all of Simeon's birthday parties. Because I am so behind, I will try not to be too wordy!

Simeon wanted a dinosaur and green themed birthday party.We included dino sandwiches, dino nuggets, green, red, yellow, and orange peppers, apples with chocolate and green sprinkles, green punch and green decorations. We tried and I think we were successful. Now he is already planning his 5th Birthday party. I must tell you now, these aren't the pics I planned on using. I had mentally decided how I wanted to post about his birthday,but plans change. Every time I went to take a picture, I hit the power button instead of the button to snap the picture. Oh well. I'm just thankful that other people took pictures too.

Simeon requested blueberry muffins for his birthday breakfast.

Lunch was a dino pb&j with apples dipped in chocolate and pink lemonade. Light lunch due to the previous week.

For his party on Monday, kids were welcomed with dino foot prints up the walkway, not tulips as some have thought :).

Gramps, Simeon, and Abbi hid dino's in the sand for all of their friends to find. We also put little dino's in balloons and let the kids "hatch" their eggs.

Sorry this is a little blurry.

Be back soon

I know, I know! A whole month of least according to the blog. This is just a quick post to say that I will be back up and running next week...hopefully. For the past 3 weeks, our house has been the sick ward. The first 2 weeks the 5 of us, at one time or another, came down with a nasty virus. It sent Simeon to the ER due to dehydration and eventually he was admitted to the hospital for 2 more days. Now that we are finally over that, we have "welcomed" more sickness into our house. Simeon has had another "episode" (for lack of a better word) through last night and this morning, Abraham has a virus that is causing some breathing difficulties, Abbi broke out with a rash this evening, and Mark has Strep Throat.

Hopefully we will all be better soon and I can post some pictures of Simeon's 4th Birthday parties. I did say parties - we had to split them up due to all of the crazy sicknesses (is that a word?). Anyways, I am just writing to let you know that I have not forgotten this blog and hopefully will be back on track next week!
