Sunday Snapshot

Sunday Snapshot

Oh, what a week it has been....More on that tomorrow.  In the midst of it all, I missed putting up a post to celebrate Baby BlueEyes' big entrance to the double digits. Yes, Baby BlueEyes turned TEN. Yes, he did. I know, seriously. Cuz I look at him, and sometimes I still see THIS:

I know. He's NOT that little anymore. But gosh, wasn't that just last month?! I mean, I do know. But I still don't KNOW how this happened. How he got to TEN!

Sigh. I know. I know. Life goes on. At the speed of light. Without stopping for momma's heart to catch up or catch a breath.  Anyhoo...

Without further ado, here is what TEN looks like 'round here...

Heading out the door, with the newly minted "ten-ness"
sitting well on his shoulders.

Birthday cake number one.
A spiced pumpkin cake with home-made spiced butter cream
frosting. Our family's sign that fall has arrived!

Celebration number two, house full of family, and cousins galore.
All eyes were riveted for several minutes on the
intense game of napkin basketball volleying across the table.

My sister sunk the first shot.

Cake number two. Not really a cake at all.
Rather, dark chocolate brownies smothered with
home-made vanilla butter cream frosting.

And topped off with four different flavors of ice cream.
Yeah. Can we say sugar coma?

THE.BIG.HIT. of the evening.
A Nerf Stampede.
All the boys, even the grown up ones,
were a little in awe.

Food. Family. Fun.
That's what TEN looks like 'round here!!!!!

Oh I know...I feel like I've been posting so much lately about "how in the world do these kids grow up so fast". It's funny when you said, "I still remember him like this". That's just what I told my Matthew (15) the other day. I said, "No matter how old you are, in my eyes you always look to me like you did when you were five."
