The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors

Today was Fall picture day for Will.  If you recall, Spring pictures did not go so well for Will because I forgot to put him in clothing suitable for photographing.  So, he took his pictures in his diapers. This go around, several teachers reminded me several times about school pictures.  Well, I was ready today.  I even combed Will's hair. He wore is Dumbo romper that Nana bought him for his birthday. He looked so precious.

After school, I took the boys to get haircuts.  Then we went to Barnes and Noble to buy Finn the second installment of Captain Underpants.  He read the first on the school bus over a period of four days.  I told him that I will buy him a new book each time he finishes a book.  I also let Sam pick out a book.  We looked for a good long while to find the perfect book.  In the process, I read several books to the boys while in the store.  Our favorite, hands down, was "The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors."  We happened upon this little gem on our way to…

Finn's 8th Birthday Party

Last Saturday we had a family birthday party for Finn at our house.  During the week of the party, I got to thinking about his cake and I realized that I have never made a birthday cake for any of my children.  Making a birthday cake seems like a very "motherly" thing to do so, I set out to make a birthday cake for Finn.  I stayed up until midnight the night before the party backing my layers.  I made a triple layer basketball cake.  It turned out pretty good.

While I was cleaning and preparing for the party, Finn, Sam and Michael went to play/coach flag football.

This was their second game of the season and Sam the best run of the entire game.
After the game, everyone came back to our house for Finn's party.  Here we have Sam telling Hank about his new Rock, Paper, Scissors book.

After eating pizza, Finn opened his presents.

Will was particularly interested in Finn's new Buck Denver movie.
