Happy Birthday Asher and Weekend Highlights

I can't believe it's Sunday night and the weekend is almost over. I can't believe my baby boy turned FOUR today. I get a little lump in my throat just thinking about it. Last night when Asher was about to go to bed, he asked who's turn it was to rock him. It was Vaughn's turn (we alternate nights), but I just HAD to rock my sweet boy for the last time as a three year old.

I'm 4! Silly boy has the cheesiest, fakest smile these day!

I spent most of Saturday doing "mommy" stuff (aka changing diapers, feeding kids, etc.) and making my brother's birthday cake. I also lost my keys while solo in Target and my Angel Mom had to come rescue me since Vaughn didn't have car seats for both kids. Mega Fail!

Camera cake for my photographer brother. My gray icing had a green hue as it started crusting. Hmmm...guess I need to work on that one.

My parents threw my brother a 30th birthday bash on Sunday...which was also Asher's actual birthday. This was really confusing for a four year old to warp his mind around. I stayed up way past my bedtime on Saturday working on his cake and I still wasn't happy with the end result, but I ran out of steam and time.

Happy Birthday Jimmy! The boys were anxiously waiting for some cake!

Asher had a great time playing with his cousins and we all ate some good mexican food and yummy cake. I skipped dessert since I probably ate my weight in cake scraps the previous day!

So much to choose from!

After the party, we took Asher to Toy's R Us and let him pick out something for his birthday. Not that he needs another toy, but we felt bad we weren't getting to to really celebrate him on his day.

Maryclaire was having a pretty good time too as long as I played with her!

He picked out some crazy alien creature...and hasn't put it down since we got home. In fact, I'm pretty sure he will be Asher's bedmate tonight!

Bedtime story-how we end every day. Notice what's in Asher's hand?

I'm excited for tomorrow because Asher starts swimming lessons! I can't wait to blog more about that as the week goes by.
