Close Shave?

3 words: Spongebob Shaving Kit
He spent an hour in the bathroom "shaving like Boppa"-smearing on bubbles and shaving them off with a sponge razor! It was so cute that I had to grab the camera!

The highlight of his day

Nana picked Spencer up from Vacation Bible School today and then he went with her to the beauty salon. While Nana was getting her cut and highlights, they decided to highlight Spencer's hair. At first he refused the "girly" treatment-- then a guy came in to have his hair highlighted. Spencer then decided it would be okay...and now he looks so cute! Between the beach and all the pool time, he is REALLY tan so his fresh little blond highlights make him look bright and healthy!

More Birthday Pics!

About 10 of us met to celebrate my birthday this past weekend. Somehow we only got pictures of one end of the table--but we sure had a blast! Thanks girls for all my wonderful gifts and the supply of laughs!

Blast from my Past

My friend, Kim visited today! We had such a goofball time--we laughed and joked, got some freak African sleeping sickness from lunch, went for coffee and shopping and then talked and laughed until late. Spencer is playing at the beach with III, Lucy and IV so this was the perfect time for a visit!

My favorite

Yesterday was my birthday. I received lots of cards, flowers, gifts, emails, and calls--which was wonderful. But Spencer was kind of left out this year. No one remembered to have him get a gift for Mommy's birthday so--all on his own, he found an empty pencil box to use as a "gift box" and then he found two memo pads (he knows I am constantly writing notes and I like Pandas and Gorillas) he drew me a sweet picture on the first page of the memo pads. Then he somehow found a blank card (where??) and made me a card and put a "lucky penny" in there. He did all of this on his own while I was on a conference call. I am so impressed that he was mature enough to realize that he wanted to celebrate my birthday with me and then he put so much thought into creating a surprise for me. I don't think I have ever been more impressed.

Little Toothless Wonder

Spencer is beautiful. He has recently lost both of his front teeth. The tooth fairy left him $6.00 for each tooth-- she leaves him his age in dollars for each tooth. I took him to Olan Mills last night for portraits/close ups of his new toothless grin. I tell ya, this kid is my entire world.

Friends, Family and Faith

To everyone that has reached out to me and Spencer during this difficult time-- we are thankful for your love and support. Although I may not be able to talk to you just yet, please keep loving us, we need it more than you know right now.
