JW turned 9 the week of Thanksgiving ... then we left for Atlanta to work in the OCC Processing Center (something I have yet to blog about...) and from Atlanta we drove up to Tennessee for vacation (something else I haven't blogged about...) and when we got back it was December and the mad dash for Christmas had begun. The result of all that busyness is that JW missed having any real birthday celebration, even though he had been promised that he could have a couple of friends sleep over instead of a party. We finally settled on a date and yesterday was it. We made the house a sister-free zone by trading children with Amy ... I got her son, Gogurt, and she got LB to hang out with Poptart. The drama level may have dropped a little with the departure of my girl, but the noise level has risen exponentially. Along with JW and Gogurt we also have another of JW's friends, Bubba (his sister's nickname for him).
Let me just say that they were easy and actually pretty good, so I thought it would be a good breakfast for the boys this morning. In case you are curious, it is just a crescent dinner roll (I used the actual triangle ones for Christmas) unrolled and then layered with ham and cheese and rolled back up and baked. Like I said ... EASY!
Hopefully, JW enjoyed his birthday party because it is about over. Bubba has already gone home and Gogurt will be returned to his family at church tonight, and so, with three days to spare, we are finished with birthdays for 2010 ... only a month and five days late!
