Dad and the giant cake and other random pictures

The giant icing-laden confection that was my dad's cake looked less like a cake and more like a giant flame walking toward him. A three layer german-chocolate cake with what had to have been a million candles on it. Just kidding pops! But really, we may have put too many candles on it, because the whole top layer was full of melted wax. Oops. And there was a suprisingly significant amount of heat rising up from it as Evan walked with it across the house. Happy Birthday Poppy!

Above is Aidan, under the mistletoe. Below is my 91 year old grandmother at her holiday party, looking quite festive I must say! Isn't she the cutest???
And finally, neon pajamas. Apparently, I once wore these as a baby myself. But that was in the 70's and I guess that was the style. I do have to say Aidan looks like a baby traffic cone in these and they crack me up. I think they might glow in the dark. He might be his own nightlight.

I would agree... he is his own nightlight..

right down to the smile that lights up the part of the room that the neon pj's missed.

stopping in to say hello to some of the newest blogging chicks!!

Happy New Year! My resolution is to get more sleep if the little booger lets me. I just saw the picture of Aidan and those top teeth coming through. Wow! That was fast. I think David is working on more, although I haven't seen anything yet. He's been a little cranky. Chat with ya soon.
