So this is a crazy month of birthdays since we have 2 about a week apart.  But we made it through successfully!  Japheth had a "How to Train Your Dragon" party and loved it.  We didn't have a pinata this year, but we played Dragon Trainer Says, Musical Dragons and Pin the Head on the Dragon.  It was a lot of fun.  Japheth is now 4 years old, and I can't believe how big he's getting.  He is 35 lbs 12 ounces and 39 1/2 inches.  He continues to get smarter every day.  He reads probably at a first grade level and is now learning a little math and money (pennies and nickles, etc).  He writes pretty well, and loves to write and receive notes.  He is also becoming a pro at riding his trike.

For Douglas' birthday he had a Halo party.  11 of his friends over for a 3 TV/3 Xbox extravaganza.  We didn't get to bed until about 2:30am and had a 6 am wake-up call from Japheth, but it was a blast!  I think we had a Halo hangover for 2 days.  He is now the big 3-0! He's doing well with all of his schoolwork and learning a lot for the M-CAT. He juggles everything pretty well and we're always so proud of all his hard work.

So far today the boys have done almost nothing but fight.  But yesterday afternoon the boys played miraculously well together for like 30-45 mins.  No crying, fussing, screaming, yelling or hitting!  Just happy giggling and fun.  And now you're asking yourself, 'Is that even possible!? What could they have possibly been doing?'  Well they were doing this. . .
Is is wierd that I was basically doing the same thing at the same time?  Their pile is higher, but mine's yummier!  Mmmm french toast!
