    It’s been two years since that date and David and I are now the proud parents of a two year old and a three and a half month gestating baby! Yesterday, we pulled off a small party for the joy of our lives. The theme was bugs and boy did the kids have fun!! We had grilled chicken tostadas(we marinated the chicken overnight), homemade refried beans, rice, homemade guacamole, and of course chips and salsa! The neighbor kids came over and we invited a nice Mennonite couple to join us in celebrating. We had dirt cake full of worms, centipedes and frogs!! What a hit. The kids were really getting into the whole “dirt” thing. The adults were a little hesitant but, once they tasted they came back for seconds! I was nervous about this party because I’ve never had to do it all on my own before. I’ve always had my wonderful buddies from church to help me. The night before the party a neighbor girl and I stayed up until ten o’clock squeezing lemons and chopping strawberries for the fresh strawberry lemonade. Everyone just loved it!! It was hard work but DEF worth it. David even sneaked a cup and hid it in the fridge! When the cake came out, Cylas got excited and we all starting singing happy birthday. Enjoy this clip and watch carefully as he blows…err…welll, tries to blow out his candle.


    And as part of his party decorations I bought him a little hat that had a bug on it…and wouldn’t you know it. I totally forgot to put it on him!! So, at the end of the night when he was smeared with Oreo and pudding I snapped a couple of shots. Cylas got a lot of cute little gifts and then…the grand finale! Mama and Papa’s gift which was his first tricycle! He just loved it. The seat is adjustable so he’ll be able to ride it for a few years. We had a great time and by the end of the night my back was out. hahhahah….I know, I sound like and old woman but, it’s true. I could barely move!! It was horrible. But, all of our hard work was definitely worth it.

    Misha you always do such a good job with foods and get togethers. I wish I was half as organized. That was such a neat theme. I will remember that… its perfect for a boy. By the way, Happy Birthday little guy. I wish me and Noah were there to celebrate with you. That is so awesome that your Dad got to be there. I am glad about that. Don’t forget to take good care of yourself and that little growing one inside you. Get plenty of rest… let your body talk to you. haha (people that don’t know our relationship will totally think I’m psycho). If your back is hurting, LIE DOWN and don’t get up!! HAHA

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY CYLAS!!!

    Wish I could have been there with you all! Love the spit on the cake. . . priceless.

    Great job Mish!
