Today has been one of those days. Josh has been out of town since Monday morning and I am worn out. The kids seemed to be extra grumpy today and everything seemed to go wrong. I couldn't even send the kids outside because now that the rain from "Dolly" is gone, we are left with mosquitoes the size of hummingbirds. The yard man showed up at 7:00 this morning and started mowing which in turn woke all of us up. I understand he likes to get started early to beat the heat but really 7:00 is so early. Then I was getting the snake out to let the kids hold him (no, we did not find the snake I am hoping he found is own way back to the wild, instead my sweet sister got Elisabeth a new one for her birthday since Elisabeth was so sad about the first one being gone) and I was holding him and he pooped on me. It was so yucky! Hogan cried all day because he just can't understand why his birthday is last. I tried to explain to him that he has already had two more birthdays than Beck but he wasn't buying it. I have misplaced my scissors and tape from when I wrapped Elisabeth's presents a couple of days ago. So... I had to wrap Beck's presents with a pair of two inch scissors and a one inch tape dispenser. Terrible! Beck really wanted a golf bag for his little bitty gulf clubs and I can't seem to find one small enough anywhere. I know they make them because I have seen them before. and did I mention I was up at 7:00. Ok now that I have vented I will get glad in the same pants I got mad in and tackle Beck's birthday cake. I don't know what I was thinking when I decided that I could make this: Mine will never be this good, but I will attempt. I'll post pics when I'm finished. I hope it goes better than the rest of my day. I can't believe my baby is going to be THREE! I'll have birthday pics for tomorrow.
