Today's fun in the snow

We got more snow last night which meant no school today. I honeslty don't beleive that we will have school tomorrow either. Hunter has gone out a couple of times today and played, but these pictures are from this morning. Both the little ones went to sleep quite quickly for nap and Will is still out.

This is Nate plyaing hard. He seems to really enjoy the snow and goes for it!

And this is Will doing??? Not sure...

Hunter's Party

Well, we finally got Hunter's party for him. He invited 4 boys over for pizza, cake and video games. The boys did play video games, but they also spent a large amount of time playing outside with the numerous Nerf Guns that he has managed to accumulate within the last week. We got him a big one and then he purchased one with his birthday money and then he got 2 of them at his party, plus one of his friends brought one from home so there was plenty for everyone!

Here is a picture of the cake that I made for him. Hunter mentions to me the night before that he thought it would be nice to have a cake that is in the shape of the nerf gun that he just got. What??? - I didn't think so, so I steered him back into the direction of what he originally wanted. A round cake with multiple layers of white and chocolate with raspberry filling and fudge. I said we would make the top look like a target.

I did jazz up the cake board by stamping some somewhat appropriate images on it. I had mostly hunting type of images to put on there and didn't want to go that route, so I did the best that I could. Still turned out nicely and I will definitely do go back to that idea with any other cakes that I end up doing.

Here is a picture of the inside. I was actually quite please with how the cake tasted. I didn't go the scratch route, but went with Betty Crocker instead. I have a recipe where you add 1/4 cup of extra flour to the mix and off the top of my head, I can't remember if the water and egg amounts change or not, but either way, it turned out quite yummy. The raspberry inside was just a jam bought at the store. Hunter's huge request was that there be as little frosting as possible.

I am hoping to add some more pictures tomorrow and I do have a couple of cute ones of the twins too.

Also, today we are going to go see the Dr. for the twins' check up. I still can't get over the fact that 3 years has passed. And get this, I made the appointment for 8 am. I do this everytime and then complain about it. I can tell that today will be one of those days. Hunter also has early release - ack!

Happy Birthday Hunter

Today Hunter turns 9. Where in the world did my baby go? I just wanted to share a few photos that I took from my scrapbook. Photos of photos... hmmm... sounds odd huh?

Here is a picture of him as a newborn.

Here he is eating rice and broccoli. If you notice my child couldn't possibly get the "normal" 2 top or bottom teeth first, but rather he got his 2 eye teeth first. He was my little vampire.

Here is Hunter outside during the spring. He was copying his dad with the earplugs.

Just another pet... That is Sitka on the left who passed away a couple of years ago.

This is a picture of his cake, what makes it funny is that every year after this Hunter had to have Cheesecake for his birthday. He is a creature of habit. He has grown out of his desire for cheesecake on his birthday, but he had it every year until just a couple of years ago.

Here is Hunter when we took a train ride. He and I had a great time - it was such a great experience.

And for my last picture... so typical of Hunter. He was upset after having some sort of disagreement with us.

And here he is at the present.

I want to post few pictures of Thanksgiving... soon.
