Birthday Times

Yesterday, our youngest son turned 10 years old. I can't believe my baby is 10! Makes me a little sad to realize that all our children are now in double-digits age-wise.

Zachary has been sick this week so he really wasn't quite up for too much birthday celebration. We had Grandma over for dinner (Zachary requested tacos with all the fixins). Then we had cake and ice cream and opened gifts.





Here's a picture of all the kiddos. They absolutely abhor getting their photos taken, so, it's always a struggle to get them together, looking at the camera and smiling in sync. It's usually a battle that ends with me getting very frustrated with them.



Moments before that photo was taken, this was the scene....me in the background trying to direct everyone where to sit and repeatedly telling them to "sit down and get closer"....them not really paying attention to me or anything I was saying....hubby tackling our oldest son and instigating some wrestling fun...Emma the dog trying to insert herself right into the middle of things. Chaos!
