"Love actually is all around us."











Dude. I have a two year old and a four year old.
How did this happen? It seems like just a blink ago I was a free spirit traveling the world searching for something big. I have found it but it is like my big toe tripped some sort of freaky fast forward button on the current of life or something. Time is fast.

We had Blaise a small family birthday party yesterday.
Pancakes and Disco.
It was Finn's idea. Well, truth be told no one even ate any pancakes although my mother brought an amazing array of syrups and such. The weather was a bit wonky right before the party and we were worried family would not be able to come. (snow snow snow)
But everyone made it in time for cake and the Bee Gees.
There is something really relaxing about having a low key family party. I love having big parties and being with all my friends, but it was really special yesterday inside our house. There was mad cousin love and everyone was smiling and everyone danced. It was so warm and comfortable inside and looking out the window at the miserable weather made it even cozier. It was like the house glowed with happiness I am sure to any passerby.

But for the record- if you ask Blaise if he is a big boy or a baby he will still reply "bebe".
And I hope he is still for a little bit.

Pancakes and the BeeGees? Celebrating in style! Happy Birthday Blaise.

No matter how old they get they will still be your bebe-s. Luckily my 7yo just "got" the concept-after years of fighting the baby title.

Happy day! Getting older is so BIG for little ones. Isn't there a way to stop it for us, though? ;-)

Pancakes and disco are two of my favorite things (not in that order though). Wish I could have been there. I know all the words to How Deep Is Your Love AND I know how to do the hustle. Happy b-day to Blaise!

So was his birthday the 25th? My baby Liam turned 7 yesterday! That would be a crazy coincidence! Happy Birthday Blaise!

Happy birthday Blaise! I love the photos of his party - looks like a lot of fun!

(And dude, in a few months I'll have a two year old and a four year old. I'm a little scared.)

Hi! I've been reading your blog for about a week now. I found it through the crafty crow. Happy "birth"day to you both. I agree with wanting them to stay babies as long as possible. I have a 4yoG and a 2yog mixed in with 13yo,10yo and a 6month old. Don't blink! :) It does go by fast.

Happy Birthday cutie boy Blaise! I had a 2 year old and 4 year old once and now they are 7 and 9, how did that happen?! I read once, when it comes to raising kids, the days are long, but the years are short. So, so true!!! My youngest is 3 1/2 and I REALLY don't know how that happened. *sigh* :0)

So great! I think I'll have a Pancakes and Disco party for my 41st this year!
