NINE?!

it doesn't seem fair that i have to adjust to the rapid aging of my older boys in the same week. within the span of four days one son turned 6 (1/3 of the way out of the house) and the other 9 (1/2 way to move out day). it's been rough, but we've covered it with lots of ice cream and singing so i don't have to think of it too much.

Ari chose pops on route 66 to celebrate his milestone. true to its name there is a GIANT bottle of pop out front...


speaking of GIANT, Ari ordered a chocolate chip cookie and was surprised to see it's size
when our server heard us talking about the boys' birthdays he asked if he could "hook noah up" with extra toppings for his single vanilla scoop. when we said sure we were not envisioning this...
SIX cherries for his six years.

we did pretzel rods dipped in white chocolate and rolled in sprinkles as Ari's treat for school. when i picked him up at the end of the day the teacher shared how much the kids loved the snack and he thanked me specifically for how "unmessy" they were...always want to get points with the teacher:)
because i like you, i thought i'd let you in on the secret.
