Sing along with me.... "It's the MOST cupcake-filled time of the year!!

Yep, it's that time of year, when Team Momogus gears up for the 3-consecutive-day-[except for leap year]-birthday-celebration! First, my niece Grace turns 3 today, my nephew Charlie turns 6 on Saturday, and my boy turns EIGHT on Sunday. Phew. Plus Gus has an unrelated birthday party to attend on Saturday. I went to Target to buy birthday cards and gift bags and left $50 poorer. Even the checkout lady was like, "Wow, you have a lot of birthday stuff there!"
I also realized this morning that tomorrow would be the day that Gus would have cupcakes at school, so I made some this afternoon. Look how we decorated them!!!!
For those of you without 8-yr-olds, they're supposed to be Pokeballs, from Pokemon, comme ca:
Woo Hoo!!!

I finished "HMS Surprise" last night, but Dad brought the next one (Book 4) this morning so I'm okay. He also brought a reference book to all the terms in all the Patrick O'Brian books - GOLD!!! Dad brought me the manuscript of his next book to read and edit a week or so ago, but Aubrey and Maturin have interfered with my editing. I told Dad that at this rate, I'd be able to read his manuscript in 12 weeks, since I'm on a book-a-week pace, there are 15 books, and I've finished 3 of them. Ha ha, he laughed... It's funny, right, Dad? Right?

Phillies played their first spring-training game yesterday - Jamie Moyer pitched three scoreless innings. Yeah, baby.

So-o-o-o-o maybe I don't bring over Book Five until I get three edited chapters....hmmmm. Desperate measures required. I never thought I would be done in by Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin. Ha Ha Ha...my eye!
Anyway - Happy Birthday to all! I still can't figure out how you and Sarah managed to bring off this three-days-in-a-row business. (Except for leap year.)

Good Mom points to you for making the cupcakes! I made the people behind the bakery counter at Giant go into the freezer to get my kid's birthday cupcakes yesterday!

But I did bake her cake. From scratch. Because, of course, I would be eating that!

Nice cupcakes! You can work at Gus's and my bakery, called Knucklehead Bakery. Guess who came up with that name! (I believe that he was helping me with a cake and I almost forgot to put in the vanilla, which he remembered!)

gg - oh no - you will hold Book Five hostage until I get a few chapters done?? (Probably a good idea....)

liz - i think i'm on an every-other-year pace with buying/making the cupcakes. It takes me a year to recover.

cg - oh someday we will all work at the Knucklehead Bakery!!!
