I'm still here! I realize that blogs have dropped off dramatically in number but there are still things worth noting happening here in our little corner of Ankeny, Iowa.
First I will back up a month or so and post pics from Topher's ~spooky~ Halloween birthday party! (Then hopefully the momentum will continue and I'll post some more soon.)
Decorating the house, inside and out:
Add one birthday boy who happens to be a total ham:
One totally awesome graveyard cake:
An interesting party menu complete with zombie fingers (smokies), "tombstone" pizzas, poisoned herbs (salad), witch's brew (sherbert punch), and 8-legged cupcakes (spider themed):
And then just throw in the kids, all in costumes of course!!:
It was so much fun and Topher will always remember the time he had a Batman, a Spiderman, a princess, a bumblebee, two Angry Birds, a pirate (mommy), and a scarecrow (daddy) at his birthday party.
Yep, we have a FOUR year old now. That's a child, not a baby, just for the record.
Well, he can still be my little baby.
How blessed we've been to have had four years with this special little boy. We love you Topher!
