Flashback Friday!

This week I am going to flashback to some of the kids past birthdays.

As you can see this is Shane's 21st birthday. Shane hasn't changed much, but Ashley has! I don't know if you can tell, but the cake is decorated with a big draft beer! Nice job with the decorating Shannon!

Now that same year, just 8 months earlier, Shannon and Dereck celebrated their birthdays together. Shannon you definitely have changed! Seems the guys just don't change much.
We went all out on the cake decorating for you two, didn't we! Maybe that explains why when Shane's birthday rolled around you decided to step up and be our cake decorator!
And just a year later, looks like Shannon again decided to take the cake decorating bag in her own hands and made a cake her and Dereck could both be proud of! But look close, it looks like we had a special birthday guest that year.....cake says, "Happy Birthday, Dereck, Shannon, and Dave Matthews!" Dead give away that Shannon definitely did the decorating this year. (yes, Shannon and Dave share the same birthday.)
But tell cake wasn't enough???? we had to throw in not one but two more cakes. Guess that confirms we had a big party, but then would you expect less with Dave as our Special Guest!!
And one last picture I ran across....I just could not exclude. This was Shannon's birthday this year, (January '08). And who do you think decorated this gorgeous Cupcake Cake????
I know everyone is saying, Shannon..........WRONG!!!
I surprised Shannon and made this for her. and even gave her the cake pan as a birthday present!
one final thought.....
Happy Birthday to all those that celebrate their birthdays during the hectic holiday!

Miss J Monday

I am such a sweet little girl....I can find a corner and entertain myself while Gramma J does her work!

Look close and you can see what I did!!!

Oooops....I forgot one small detail...THE PAPER!
We both learned a lesson today....I will always get paper or coloring book out and Gramma will always look and see what I am doing when I am so quiet. *giggle**giggle*
Oh, gramma wants to know if anyone has a helpful hint on how to get crayon marks off the floor.
Now it's time for me to take a nap....Nighty, night....or as grampa says, "day, day!"

Flashback Friday

I have to laugh everytime I see this picture!

This is Jude (yes, that big fat cat that Jaden loves) "playing" with our cat and his sister, Lucy.

Can you believe how much Jude has grown! That's what happens when you raise a cat in a small apartment.

Lucy is about half Jude's size now....lots of exercise running up and down stairs and throughout the big house!

Miss J Monday

Gramma J and I have been so busy the past couple of weeks that I have not had time to do my weekly blog. (Sorry Ashley, I know you have missed it, I will try to do better.)
Gramma has lots of painters at the studio so I am her helper on Mondays. I greet all the customers when they walk in the door with a great big "HI" and then I help them pick out their paints! Now if I could just get them to use all the colors I pick out for them.

Instead of a picture from the studio, this week I am going to share with you a picture of me and "ga-ga J" kicking off the holiday season!

Brrrrrrrr......mommy, gramma j and grampa max took me to the lighting of the Santa downtown. I had fun singing Christmas carols and wow, I was really surprised by the bright lights!! I think I am going to like this Santa fella!
