I had Ruthie snap some photos after church. Molly was zonked on Sterling's shoulder. And his new transition glasses were in sunlight mode. But it was fun anyway!
|Sterling's head got cut off, but I still love it!|

The Birthday Celebrations
We have a tradition of buying the favorite sugary cereal of the birthday-ee and take it to them on a tray in bed. The kids LOVED bringing daddy his Golden Puffs. After church we eat a quick lunch and then the kids take naps, so after naps we had cake! Sterling requested his family's coconut cake that has to sit out overnight. The caramel didn't soak through to the bottom, even after poking the cake with bigger and bigger holes. I don't know what happened. But it still tasted really good!
|Will helped blow out the candle. And then blew it out again about four times, haha.|
Sterling got all the XMen dvds (was that present for him or me? Hmmm haha) and then his mom and I got together to get a grill. But decided to let him pick it out. He's wanted one our ENTIRE marriage--so I guess six years later is a good time to surprise him with one, right? PLUS we can use it year-round here, so it's really a great thing to have!
After presents we had our Sunday Wii time. The kids don't play the wii at all during the week, and it is TOO hot for our normal activity of taking a Sunday walk, so this has become our new norm for Sunday evenings, haha. The kids are getting really good at MarioKart, I'm super impressed. They used to not be able to complete laps by themselves and now when Sterling and I finish, they are usually on lap 2 out of 3! We also have some family games where they can fish, shoot balloons, race cows, and find matching mii's. And then of COURSE there is Just Dance Disney--because everyone loves that:
|She is a pro, and it is adorable. She doesn't just do the hands for the points, she follows ALL the actions! I love it!|
|Molly dances without a remote, which is super, super cute.|
Sterling said he had a great birthday, so that's good! We loved that it was on Sunday so we could spend the ENTIRE day together. Since Sterling is the music chairman, he also planned it so another person led the hymns and another person played the organ so we could sit TOGETHER as a FAMILY throughout all of sacrament meeting. It was like Christmas! Well, not really. But at least there were more hands on deck, which was awesome!
I'm so grateful he was born so he could be my husband and create this amazing family with me! Love you Sterling!!!!
