What a great day! Pedar left early this morning to go skiing with his good friend Kealii. He had really wanted to go before Christmas, but Erik and Casey took turns getting sick and that deleted all of our personal plans.
I took it slow this morning, got the kids off to daycare a bit late. I wanted to have a fun breakfast time with the boys. I got them all settled, worked for awhile and then I went and had a honey dip!!! I've had a gift certificate for a Honey Dip at Esthetics by Jeanette for quite awhile now just begging to be used. I thought, what better day to treat myself to some "me" time than on my gugga's first birthday?!!! Last year I was in labor on this day and this year I am being pampered! I mean, I did survive an entire year with two kids. I should have spent the entire day at the spa and shopping for the kindle, tiffany box and digital camera that wasn't in my stocking!!
It was the most perfect hour I have had in a lonnnggg time. I felt brand new after my honey dip. I was ready to pick up my boys and celebrate! I had Erik's adorable little carrot cake and another larger carrot cake for the rest of us to enjoy. It is a tradition to buy a huge number balloon on Casey's birthday, so I went and got Erik a huge number one balloon today.
Kekoa and Claire came over and we hung out and played and then Kealii and Pedar got back from skiing. We had a yummy dinner and sang to our little birthday boy. He really liked the frosting on the cake. The birthday boy then had a bath and was whisked off to bed.
Good night my adorable little man. I look forward to seeing you in the morning. I have this feeling that you are getting cuter right this very minute!!
