We celebrated Jacob's 9th Birthday Sunday. We had Hillbilly BBQ, coleslaw, baked beans, 7 layer dip, eggplant dip, and cream cheese with pepper jelly, and a Coldstone Creamery cake with Jacob's favorite ice cream, Oreo Overload. There was plenty of food! It was a good turnout and my little house held up nicely with all those extra people! It helped that it was a nice day outside and the kids spent most of it outside. Katie gave Jacob a movable garden that he absolutely loved. He planted flowers (don't know what kind!) and some broccoli. He said since he's growing it, he'd eat it...maybe! My sister gave him a Snuggie. When I suggested it to her, she balked. I told her he's been begging me for one for a long time now and he loved it. He's laying in my bed with it right now, watching a movie! He has requested spinach quiche for his birthday dinner so I'm making that tonight since he has an early football practice tomorrow. Both boys are playing football this year and it's killing us. We're at the park 4-5 nights a week. Phil is set to open his next restaurant in Hammond next week so he's been very busy with that. He's expecting big things for this restaurant so keep your fingers crossed for us!
Here's some pictures from today. Jacob and David posed for a picture, since they share the same birthday and the same middle name!
