I am so behind in keeping you updated so you might get some posts that seem like they happened awhile ago.
That's because they happened awhile ago and I'm just now getting my crap together. I think we all need to be excited I'm showering more regularly, and we also need to recognize we can't have it all.
But yes... Jackson turned eight!
So this year he kind of suckered me into having an actual friend birthday party for him. Last year was IT, but here we are and I have a hard time saying no to this sweet face.
Also being broke meant that I made his cake. Which, I may have spent hundreds of dollars on classes and tools but that doesn't buy talent. I can't even brag that the entire cake came out of the pan because I had to kind of put one half together again. Then I had an issue with frosting and my cool orange sides got droopy and it looked like a hot mess.
But then on Sunday we had his friend party at the roller rink. Of all of the places to like, a roller rink is not somewhere I would have thought he'd enjoy but as it turns out, if we went every weekend he'd be the happiest kid ever. It was a Minecraft themed party and this is the cake Matt ordered.
The cool thing is that at the roller rink they announce it's your birthday, you get a shirt, and you get to pick out something from some prize area. He picked out this hat and insisted on wearing his "birthday boy" ribbon the entire time.
Seriously- I don't know how I raised these kids to be so great.
