Asher's Birthday Party
Asher had a very nice birthday, it seemed to me at least. All day long Brennan and I would sing him the birthday song, and/or wish him "Happy Birthday Asher!" and he seemed to enjoy that quite a bit.
O.k., don't judge me by my cake decorating (dis)abilities because I certainly don't come by any naturally. So, I'm very proud of this cake because for me, it's spectacular! It was actually really, really easy, except for the engine part which was more complicated to frost, but I definitely recommend it for a craftiness-challenged person like myself.
Although pretty much everyone had somewhere to go that evening, we were fortunate that my in-town family all made it to the quick, squeezed-in-at-dinner-time celebration. The guests included my Mom and Dad, sister Devon, sister Shannon and her husband Bryan, besides "my Brian", Brennan and myself.
Since we unfortunately don't live near enough for you to have attended, I wanted to post for you the video of Asher opening your gift. Now, don't let his seeming lack of enthusiasm fool you... Asher (and Brennan too, for that matter) LOVES LOVES LOVES these books. We read them EVERY nap time, and EVERY bedtime. This evening I realized that Asher was repeating "where's my binkit?" as I read. At the end of each reading he'll say, "The end," which is pretty new. Thank you for the thoughtful gifts.

I'm still working on getting Christmas Thankyou cards out, and now Asher's birthday ones as well, but Asher loves everything that he received. He was so cute to watch opening his cards and "reading" them. Thank you so much!
