Happy Birthday Jacob!

5 years old! We had a nice birthday party at the bowling alley on Saturday, but I forgot to take pictures. Just running around keeping track of the 5-and-under bowlers kept me from even remembering that I brought my camera. I did snap one post-party picture, with Annie in the purple party dress. Today, Jake celebrated with his pre-school class, and then we had a small celebration at home. Since we had cake on Saturday and cupcakes at pre-school, I decided to frost some sugar cookies for tonight for a change. When I was making the cookies, I needed my rolling pin, which I do own, but NEVER use. I finally gave up and remembered the kids had a plastic one in their playdough stash. I washed it off, and it worked quite nicely. The birthday boy got some great gifts, and he loved them all. I wish all of our friends and family could have been here with us. Hard to believe it has been 5 years.

Hi Carrie
Present ready to post but I thought it was Friday, sorry. Wrote you a note in the package. Glad it all went well. Off to watch the debate.
