 I found this note on my pillow the other evening after I put Brighton to bed.  How sweet is he?  His writing skills are amazing me every day.

I just can't help myself

Addie has been helping me plant my garden.  It was one of her favorite things to do last year, and she was so excited when we started planting this year.  Today while working in the garden she would pat the dirt after planting each seed, then she would say, "don't worry, I gave that one some love!"

Oh the way, we took her to get her ears pierced a couple weeks ago.  She didn't even flinch.  It was like nothing to her.  This girl will do anything for beauty.

 So the boy turned six even though I tried to stop him.  We celebrated his birthday as a family on Thursday.  Addie and I had lunch with Brighton that day and we took ice cream cone cupcakes to share with his classmates.  Then we threw him a party with his friends on Saturday. 

 Brighton decided he wanted his birthday party theme to be The Lorax.  For the invitation I downloaded The Lorax movie poster from their website and photoshopped out all the text.  Then I added his birthday party info.  Is that illegal?  It turned out cute though.
  We had lots of cute guests.  We played pin the mustache on the lorax, had a treasure hunt, and broke open a pinata.  I wish I would have snapped a few more pictures, but those kids were crazy!

My attempt at making Lorax pops.
 I made the kids cute Lorax mustache straws and I am bummed I didn't get a picture of anyone drinking out of them.
Brighton loved every second of it, which was the best part.
