Joel and I decided a few days ago to thaw out our top layer of wedding cake. I know...I know....you are supposed to wait until your one year anniversary...blah..blah...blah! There was nothing tradition about our wedding so why stick to tradition with the top layer of the cake. We hardly got any of the cake at the wedding and I know how good it was...I picked it out! So, dang it...I wanted some of it.... I had a little sweet tooth:-) We thawed it out over night and ate some...It was soooooo yummy! I was worried after a year it just wouldn't be the same. Besides...I want something else for our one year anniversary...Joel knows what I am talking about:-)
It's hard to believe how much my son has grown over the last few years. He is 12 years old and almost 6ft tall. I am 5ft 10in and as you can see in this picture he is taller then I am. I remember thinking when he was little that one day he would be taller then me. I never knew that day would come so soon!!!! He is going to me jynormous!!!! He is such a handsome young man. He is going into 7th grade next year...crazy...high school is right around the corner. Next time I blink he will be off to college YAY!!! LOL Just kidding. I am looking forward to enjoying every second with him until he moves off to be a man on his own:-( That thought is much closer to reality now then it ever has been....scary! I am such a lucky Mama to have such a handsome, bright, sweet an loving son.

Tonight was all about your "Poker Face". We held a poker game at our house tonight with some friends. I made quesadillas...Pioneer Woman's 7 layer dip and other snack goodies. It was yummy. Joel and I love having people over. We always have such a great time. Just a few years ago you could not have paid us to stay home. We always wanted to go out and party. We finally grew up. We are adults with a family. We have children to take care of. My Mom told me something a long time ago that at the time made no sense to me, now it makes perfect sense. When Joel and I make plans to "go out" we ask ourselves this. Can you take your kids with you??? If the answer is no then we just don't do it. I mean...there are some things....like our honeymoon...DUH...and some nights that we go on a rare "date"...but for the most part...we want our kids, friends and family to be a part of everything we do. All of that means more to us now then it ever has. It's AWESOME!!! We don't let the kids play poker...because we are playing for money...but we involve them in the night with us"-) I look forward to our next "Poker Night" with friends and family. Maybe I will win next time. I wasn't the first one out....but I wasn't the last either. It's all fun though!!

Thomas leaves for summer camp next Sunday....gosh...this will be his 6th year at camp. He LOVES it. He looks forward to it all year. I sure do miss him while he is gone but also enjoy seeing him have so much fun. I look forward to seeing the pictures the camp posts online daily. He is growing sooooo fast right now. He is 12 years old and has officially past up his MAMA...yes me...and I am not short...I am 5ft 10in. He will probably grow another foot while he is at camp.
Well...enough babbling for tonight...I am hitting that hot shower!
