It’s My Party and I’ll Cry If I Want To!

We celebrated Nikolai and Dodo’s (Memere’s) birthdays over the weekend here. It was nice to have company over, and to see everyone again; a nice distraction from the fun that is selling and buying a house as well!

We chatted, played, hung out on the swing, played baseball, opened presents, ate delicious strawberry shortcake, and sang the birthday song. Well, tried to sing the birthday song above Nikolai’s frantic screaming. For some reason, as soon as we all started singing, he freaked out and started screaming, “NO SINGING, NO SINGING PLEASE!!!!!” We all of course finished out the song thinking he’d just plug his ears and settle down, (and since we were singing for Memere as well!) but he didn’t. He refused to blow out the candles or eat any of the delicious treat after that. Poor guy. Hopefully he’ll get over that soon, as the singing’s bound to happen at least once a year for the rest of his life!

He did get over it later though, and went out back to play with the kids, with his new soft baseball and bat, and remote control car. Overall a nice little get together with family. Happy Birthday Nikolai and Dodo! We love you!  Pics are in two galleries.  This one and This one.  :)

    You guys are selling your house? Wow! Where are you moving? So are we! We listed our house yeterday actually.
    Anyway, I officially reigned my job last week. I have mixed feelings but ultimatly know that being home is what is best for my marriage and son. It’s just hard to leave a career I’ve worked hard at and I don’t want to “waste” my master’s degree. However, teaching is a career that is easy to reenter when the time comes. I’m telling you this because you are the only stay at home mom I know and I might need moral support.
    Also, we need to plan the next “couples” dinner. We’ll host.
    Hope you are doing well!
