Happy Birthday(s)



Today is Malcolm's first birthday. However, since Art is out of town we celebrated as a family a few days ago. It wasn't the greatest thing ever, no hordes of guests and mounds of presents but really...he's one. He could care less. He had plenty of fun demolishing his lemon and cream cheese cupcake. 



Here's a little video:



Also, we got exactly NO good pictures of Xander's birthday on July 4th because my camera settings make Art mad. And it was rainy outside and dark inside. So I didn't post anything about it. Which is crappy. He had a great time and he got among other things the hot-rod red toaster (Yes, you read that right. My kid asked for a toaster and a loaf of bread for his fifth birthday. That's just how he rolls). It was hilarious.This was the first year however that due to said rain he didn't get any fireworks on his birthday, which disappointed me but him...eh, not so much. I have good kids. One is perfectly happy with a water balloon fight, the other with his shiny toaster.

And Mal, of course, with his proportionately ginormous cupcake.

I know I love the ending with his mouth all wide open and excited. Ha.

And I guess my hair is darker, it is officially all natural for the first time since I was sixteen. Crazy.
