Jacob's party pics and the Love Ya friendship award!

I wanted to post some pics of Jacob's and Emmie's
parties, but since there are so many, I
am going to do his one day and hers another.
I wasn't going to post a picture of the cake
because it was just your basic Lightning McQueen
cake, but it did have one interesting feature:
Is Lightning parked by the dump or did he
have an embarrassing accident?? Maybe that's
where Noah got the idea for the 'gift' he left on my floor!!
Make a wish!
He got lots of outside stuff, including
this slip and slide.

He didn't quite get how to slide down it, though-
this was a cute pic, but he hurt his
knees when he landed!

He got several water guns too! So much fun!!

I feel totally threatened! NOT! :)

Noah and Emmie didn't like the water and
freaked out anytime they got sprayed-
Ashton rescued him!!
Emmie hid on the porch and played with the
Power Wheels jeep

and the sidewalk chalk. And at no time did
she ever put it in her mouth-and if she did,
I would have totally stopped her!
(Oh, wait, this isn't Not Me Monday! :)
Noah finally decided it was ok to play in
water, as long as it was contained. This was the
bucket they were using to fill the water guns.
Not exactly pool size, but hey, you gotta
work with what you got!
All in all it was a great party! Jacob
certainly had a blast, and so did the rest
of us.
In other blogging news,
I received an award today!!
I got the Love Ya friendship award from
Christie Rose over at
She has 5 kids also and is a pretty new bloggy friend.
I am honored that she calls me friend.
Thank you, Christie Rose!

So here's what you must do upon accepting this award:
Please create a post stating the following about the award:
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
So here goes, in no particular order...
1. First, back to you, Christie Rose! You are a sweet person,
and your love for Jesus is so inspiring.
I am glad you found my blog!
I hope the next 5 don't constitute cheating-
all are IRL friends too! But I don't have that
many new bloggy friends to choose from yet!
2. Next, to Karen at Diary of a Domestic Diva. We have been
friends for a few years, through church. She has four
beautiful children and loves to talk about them!
She has also been going through a rough time
with some personal stuff and could use our prayers.
Go visit and let her know we are praying for her!!
3. And then there's Mandy at Confessions of a Drama Mama.
She has two spunky boys, and a fantastic sense of humor.
(I just wish she would post more!! :)
4. Also there's Konnie at The Dooley's. Konnie is
my BFF, and we just have a great time
together. She has three great boys, and is
following God's call to possibly adopt another
baby. Follow them as they embark
on this journey-I know I am!
5. My friend Kelli at Random Thoughts of a Supermom
is the one who got me addicted into all
this blog stuff-thanks, Kelli! She has three cutie
boys of her own, and is one of those super
crafty, neato people we all wish we could be!
6. And the last of my IRL friends, Tracy at Simply Smith
is one of the sweetest people I know. She has two precious
boys, and they always seem to be busy, busy, busy!
Sooo much fun!
7. My first blog friend, Mimi at He & Me + 3.
She has three cute kids with amazing dimples.
I love her writing style, and she really cracks
me up! She's funny and soft spoken. And she's a
very faithful commenter! Thanks, Mimi!
8. Lastly, a new bloggy friend Amanda at proud mommy of four.
She has four little blond beauties, three girls and one boy.
I love reading about the little ones, but Amanda is
really transparent with her emotions and
her life in general. Her faith shines through
everything she says!
Wow...this post took me all day to write!
Off to cook supper for my youngins!

Thanks so much Jen for passing the award on to me. You are so sweet. I loved that birthday cake. So cute. We love Cars over here.
Looks like a lot of fun water activities. My kids love the water guns.

Konnie said...

Thanks Jennifer! I am glad to be able to call you My Best Friend.
I hate that we missed Jacob's party but i will get his gift to him this week. It is so funny that our boys are obsessed with Cars still, that is what Grayson is doing again this year for his party.
Know I need to get you to help me post the award on my blog. Lol!

Your kids are precious. I especially love the picture of the one in the bucket. Hilarious! I saw your comment on Kimber's Cullen post. I totally pictured their house as a big victorian too! I was dissappointed in the house in the movie... Just wanted to say hi!
