The Birthday Boys!

JR and Brendan both celebrated their birthdays this month. JR turned 7 on the 8th and Brendan turned the big #1 on the 11th. JR insisted that they share their birthday party. What a sweetheart!

JR's Madagascar Cake...

Brendan didn't quite know what to think about all the fuss!

He liked the cards more than any of the presents! So what did we buy the toys for?!

Let's get messy!!! Brendan was not shy about getting his hands dirty. He dug right in. This boy loves to eat!

"Hmmm...Should I keep eating?

On Your Mark... Get Set... Go!!!

Last month the Elder's Quorum in our ward held a Pinewood Derby. They invited the kids to build their own cars as well. Needless to say, it was a big hit! The kids had so much fun putting together their cars!

Christian and JR ended up racing for the Championship! It was a very close race. So close that they had to race twice! We even had video footage! (I will try to add that later, my computer is being retarded.) Sammy's car did pretty well, too! She took 5th place.

After a few minutes, the judges decided that JR's car took 1st Place and Christian's 2nd. Mommy was pretty happy with that because she helped build JR's car! (Who ever said that women can't build cars?! Ha Ha!)

Here is a shot of the top 3 contenders. Way to go boys!
