Audrey's week-long 6th birthday

With Audrey's friend party scheduled for this weekend, we just did a family lunch at Peter Piper Pizza on the big day. It was very low key, unlike the skating party this morning (I will post pics of that funess later... I mean soon!). This is Audrey learning to hold her birthday quarters in her eye sockets, another important lesson by Dad.

My parents sent a Fashion Designer toy. I think we all had one of these as a child - where you can switch up the skirt, top, shoes and hair of the model, then slide a crayon of the paper and make a rubbing... so fun! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa!

My parents also sent this great bead kit - Audrey is a natural at designing beautiful necklaces!

Jeremiah also enjoyed himself at Audrey's party - he loves those pizza crusts. I can't believe he's already 8 months. He's not crawling yet and we're really okay with that.

Bennett before we gave him any pizza.

We came home for cake and ice cream and the rest of the presents which was way easier than hauling it all with us.

Audrey has been so great to have at home for the last few weeks. She seems so much more grown up than when we sent her off to Kindergarten last fall. She's happy and usually finds something to read or a journal entry to write when she has some time to herself. She's also been extreemly helpful to me as Jeremiah's biggest fan! She's learning to change diapers (at her request) and is great at entertaining him. Audrey's on the YMCA swim team which practices every day and competes about once a week. So far it's been a great experience for her (more pics of that to come too!). Happy Birthday Audrey!!!

Ahh, I do remember the days when Lincoln would slobber on a pizza crust and somehow it would disappear. :) Happy Birthday to Audrey, and to Bennett. I miss those guys! I can't believe how big they are getting. And of course Jeremiah is a doll. Thanks for posting some new pics. Can't wait to see you guys!
