Birthday Boy!

Big Austin is 4. We had a small but very nice party for him on Friday. Too bad the kid is afraid of fire. He wanted nothing to do with those candles. Why? I don't know.

Here are some pictures. You can see how happy he was and then how timid he gets with the cake scene. He's been like that since he's been 2. We've got some great video of him at his 2nd birthday all smiles and then shrinking like a violet into his high chair when everyone started singing for him. Maybe next year he'll blow out his candles.

Don't you just love that category on Jeopardy? A little bit of everything and that's what this post will entail.

The Sod Farm had another great ending to a mediocre season. After going 2-5 in the regular season we finished 2-1 in the tourney for 2nd place. You have to be proud. Here is a pic of our most loyal fans.

I got to see my friends baby yesterday. He is so beautiful. I'm so mad I forgot my camera. They finally named him last Monday morning after neither one wanting to budge. Walter Wesley or Wesley Walter, Dad finally caved and so it's Wesley Walter. He's so precious.

Austin will be four on Friday. So hard to believe. 4 years ago I was in the hospital with so much craziness happening. What a difference 4 years make.

So the excitement for Tommy is hockey and Cub Scouts. He loves both activities. He's doing great in hockey and his team is 4-1, he plays defense. In scouts he's busy learning his scout promise and all that jazz. He'll try and practice and his brother the clown is always there to sabotage. Tommy will start in with his "I Tommy Papesh promise to do my best" and Austin will yell out, "I Tommy Papesh I go home!!" The funniest part though is Tommy gets to the part where he says "do my duty to God and my country" and as soon as he says "God" Austin screams out "IN THE HIGHEST!!!" Ah, our church going is paying off. I'm slowly turning both boys into Rod and Tod Flanders. Hidely Ho!

Tonight's excitement. A steak dinner on the grill having to be broiled instead due to some uninvited guests. Look who took up residence in our grill. There were 3 babies that apparently were born in there. I hate mice, I don't like the fact that they are this close to the house. We've had one mouse in this house in 6 1/2 years and life is on hold until the mouse is caught. Hopefully they won't get in here. Yuck!

Well it sure seems like more is happening but that is the most exciting. Tonight is our only free night of this week. We can relax in November. ;) Busy busy busy!!!

Speaking of Babies!

My best friend IRL Renee and her husband Josh are having their 2nd child today. I can't wait to hear whether they had a boy or girl and if a boy hope they have a name for him! There is a school mass today, in fact Tommy is reading the Psalm, I know that they will be on my mind the whole time. I'm sure they are a nervous wreck waiting for their c-section this morning. So exciting! I hope they have a little girl for Big Brother Wilbert to look out for!

It's true!

And we are happy as pie! Still nervous as it's early but the newest little Papesh is officially on the way. We are due May 19th and the 1st ultrasound is October 30th. A grueling 3 weeks away. So far I'm feeling very well and am hoping to enjoy every moment of this pregnancy as it could very well be my last. I was lucky to get #3! So hopefully all will go well and 8 months from now we are holding a perfectly healthy newborn. I'll definitely enjoy sharing all the fun with you readers!
