And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall

Shall we start with hair cuts? How handsome, no?
We figure the grandmas will be happy about it.

And then, let's talk about the RAIN! Days and days and days of rain. My friend says we'll have a nice fall, and Eli said, Oh good, that will help our plants, but my, my, my...

And, then my birthday! So perfect. It all started on Friday night, when I was coming out of a strep induced fog. I heard the boys joyfully in the kitchen making my birthday cheesecake. They were so sweet and chatting and enjoying themselves. I heard Eli say, "I like this house." Me too, bud, me too. Then bright and early with garage sales and birthday cash. I bought a hat from a guy raising money for adoption awareness. Soccer games followed by a nap and then art on the back porch with the family. Evan even joined the relaxation (pictured above). Then came hibachi dinner with the family followed by tequila shots at a bar (without family) which inevitably led to Dylan records in the shed after hours. It was joyful and lovely and fun. I love my family :)

Happy late birthday! We miss you! Sounds like your birthday was absolutely perfect.

I still insist that we celebrate. Maybe next month we can do a "fall birthdays" girl's night out. You know, an excuse to get together and eat chocolate and make stuff!

Oh my gosh I completely forgot about your birthday and I feel just horrible. I remembered a few weeks ago that it was coming but I've been in a fog lately too. Anyway, glad you had a good one!
