mother of a double digit kid.

yesterday my biggest kid turned 10.
baby jake.
he requested his favorite meal be prepared.
eggrolls and rice.
yes cleo, asian food.
is he not the cutest boy you've ever seen?
i've already had several requests to save him for friends' daughters to marry.
soooo, get in line.

i made his favorite cake.
chocolate with chocolate covered strawberries on top.
only 5 candles because he wasn't supposed to get older than 5, he promised me.

i was mad at jake for growing up so i decided to make him jealous by mugging down with my little teeny tiny guppy.

kora wanted in on the fun.
take note that i've been tanning for 2 weeks.
not at all.

the kissing fest was so fun,
Lover wanted in it.
i couldn't resist, never can.

we did our traditional family pose on each birthday
using my handy dandy camera timer.
the kids weren't familiar with how it works.
you can tell in their faces.
aaaaaand, i look fat.

Happy Birthday Jakey!
I love you more than you'll ever know :)

That cake looks SO good I'd like to request it for my next birthday.

I have kids like Koko, nice and tan year round - definitely not fair.

Please put Jr. on the prospective marriage list.

Happy Birthday to Jakob!!

Kaci said...

Talk about feeling old! I remember giving him that little riding toy at Outback when he was 2 I think. Tell him I am mad at him too...even though he doesn't have a clue who I am!!!!!

Candace said...

I, too, am tired of hearing that you're fat. You. are. not. fat.

Love the pics. The cake looks AMAZING! Can't believe you have a 10 year old. My kids better not ever get that big on me. I'll ground them.

Awww, happy birthday to your big guy :) You guys all look cute as ever.

Sorry didn't get a chance to chat on Sunday; especially since you skipped out on the after-party!! Party pooper! ;)

Bonnie said...

Your traditional family pose looks like it's missing something! Or two somethings.

Anyway, I hope that Ashlyn is at the top of that marriage list. Just tell Jake that Ashlyn knows military life and will be TOTALLY ok with him being a marine officer. I'm just saying, Valinda can't say that can she? I know, low blow, but she's known you longer so I have to get an edge any way I can.

Loved the cake. MMMMMMMMM
