Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Where's the fire?

Thanks to Uzz for the great pictures. Mine just aren't near as good as these. Little Bit celebrated her sixth birthday on Oct. 12th with a backyard pinata party. She helped me make her cake and thought it was great fun that it had candy sprinkles on it. What is amazing to me is that she wore this same little pumpkin headband at her first birthday party, too!

The weather was wonderful. Not too hot and sunny, so we did everything in the back yard. Bonus for mom not having to clean the inside again. The little girl next to her has been her best friend since they were 2. They went to preschool together, but unfortunately don't go to the same school.
Yep, they're going to be sorority girls when they grow up. Not sure we'll be able to afford the same college as her best friend's family. She may be going to Vassar or something and my girl is hitting a state university.
We piled all the kids on the trampoline for present opening.
They all fit pretty well.
And, the big finale was a visit from the fire department! I love Little Bit's face in this picture. She was shocked that the fire department came to see her. Mom and LabKat were just happy to see the firefighters. See, I deserve a payoff for setting up the party and dealing with a dozen 5- and 6-year-olds and a grumpy 9-year-old who hated not being the center of attention.
Fire Captain Little Bit. Has a good ring to it. She can be like Toni Daytona from the Luann comic strip - a hot and sexy firefighter. That reminds me of a story about her saying she wanted to be a policewoman when she grows up. I said "you've gotta kiss a lot of ass if you want to be a cop." She looked at me and said "you really have to kiss a lot of ass?" I think she was thinking of it literally. We had a hard time containing the laughter hearing those words spoken by that sweet little voice.
We managed to get the fire truck here with a simple phone call. A former neighbor of mine did it for her son, so I thought I'd give it a try. What a great way to wrap up a party?
Yeah, where's the fire boys? Funny story, though, one of the moms returned to pick up her son and drove up to see a firetruck outside our house. She was panicked until she reached the firetruck and saw the kids crawling in and out, putting on fire gear, etc.
And, then, my Christmas card picture. Yeah, it'll have jack-o-lanterns in it. Sue me. I have more party pics that I took, but Uzz's are the best, so they're a good start.

    What fun! Great photos, Uzz.
    The kiddies are so adorable. Your children are literally growing up before our eyes! What a fine-looking trio, too.
    And how cool is that -- having the firetruck at the party? Those're some hunky fellas rahght thar. Rowr! ;-)
