Where Has the Time Gone?

I can't believe it's been so long since I've blogged!!! We've been really busy.

I still haven't put up any pictures from Alex's birthday party.

We had a great day. It was a small party, and I'm glad it was. It was much less stressful. We had it up at our church which also made my life easier.

Jay did all of the cooking. We had pulled pork barbeque, mashed potatoes, corn, salad, and fruit salad. We also did personal pizzas for the kids. We let them make their own and then baked them. It was a big hit.

I got some of the Color Wonder stuff so the kids could color, and my friend, Michelle, brought their portable, indoor bouncy thing. The kids LOVED it. Alex was the youngest, we had 2 18 months olds, a 3 year old, an almost 4 year old, a 6 year old and an 8 year old.

We had a pinata and I think the parents all hate me because I bought WAY too much candy. We then did cake, ice cream and presents.

I asked people to bring craft/school supplies instead of presents for Alex. Our adoption agency is doing a mission trip to Guatemala this summer and they are going to be doing Vacation Bible School with some of the kids. They need craft/school supplies, and my friends didn't let me down. I have about 4 large bags full of stuff. I can't wait to deliver it to our agency. Believe me, Alex doesn't need any more stuff!!!!

Here are some pictures from the day.
