The Big Day

Well, Broderick had his big day...his Halloween Birthday Party!!! He was so excited to have friends from kindergarten, church, and preschool at his house for a costume party. The children had a blast! They looked great. Even John and I dressed up (we wore blue shirts and blue jeans with name tags on that said "Gene" and "Jean"-we were a pair of blue jeans) Hee Hee :) Adalynn looked adorable in her berry fairy costume, Camden was a scary Frankenstein, and Broderick looked too grown up in his ninja garb.

Tomorrow is also a big day. It is my first 'official' day back to work. I did go in for a few hours this morning, but my substitute was still there. Adalynn had a urologist appointment this afternoon, so I didn't stay all day. (He said she is fine....YAY!!! No fistula that we could tell and no further testing is needed at this point in time). I can't believe it is already time for me to go back to work. I am extremely excited about getting to know my students, but very sad to be leaving Adalynn. She is still soooo young compared to when I left the boys to go back to work. I know she is in great hands, but they're not mommy's hands, so that makes me a little sad. Please pray for Bridget (who is taking care of Adalynn) and me (that I make it through my first day without her).

I hope you enjoy the photos. Most are from Broderick's party, a couple from before (Adalynn bathing and one of Broderick on a surprise birthday call) and a few from our photo shoot after his party (attempting to get Christmas card pics ready---we hope to get cards mailed out BEFORE February this year). I can't promise anything though. I won't share too many on here, so you can be excited when you get your card! Hugs and Kisses to all!!! Thanks for checking in on us.


  1. These are great pictures! What a super birthday cake! Also, I can relate to the February Christmas cards. I think grad school only adds to it. I haven't had cards out on time in years! :)

  2. What a fun birthday party!! My birthday is the 29th...very close to Halloween.

    Glad Adalynn's appt went well, one less thing to worry about.

    Have a good first day back to work! :)

  3. Great photos! Hope getting back to work this week went okay!

  4. That is the best cake I have every seen. Is there anything you can't do?? =) You're the best! Miss you! See you soon!
