Miscellaneous Madness: A Day in the Life (October 2013)

This month's Day in the Life fell not only on a weekend, but on the day of Kane's 5th birthday party. At first mom couldn't decide whether or not this would make for a day full of lame pictures -- both because she would likely be too harried to spend much time looking for good shots and because we'd be spending most of the day indoors. And while both of those reasons were true, she actually kind of liked the photos with which she ended up. They showcase a different part of our life, where our family from both sides travels from all across the country comes together in celebration. It really only happens twice a year and we think it is pretty special.

Happy October, all!

7.25 a.m. -- Saturday morning cartoons oblivious to the house ready to party.

8.15 a.m. -- mom left the house only one time during the 12-hour period and that was to pick up ice and emergency back up cake. we were a little worried our friends would want seconds and thirds of my awesome castle cake and that we'd run out. they did, but it was the cake that kept on giving! what would a Green birthday party be without a cake situation, though? 

9.45 a.m. -- the birthday boy in his "House of Green" shirt ready to get at that fabulous castle cake already.

10.30 a.m. -- reading his brand new knights story book with Grandpa D-Rock and counting down the minutes. 

11.15 a.m. -- the party has commenced. huzzah! 

12.55 p.m. -- party is over! cam winds down by working on create-a-face sticker pad with Auntie V. that's a rendering of mom right there. 

1.45 p.m. -- Aunt Erin and Uncle Tim get serious with the Playmobil Castle they brought for Kane. In a surprising show of cooperation for any married couple, they put that thing together like total champs (and then mom shattered the whole thing when she tried to move it the next day. no problem, it's been fixed).

2.50 p.m. -- Grammie B teaches Cam a silly song about a dolly. lots of giggling involved.

3.30 p.m. -- objectively, Cam has the best hair eva. 

4.00 p.m. -- Kane wastes no time digging in to his new blocks to build castles. and dungeons. and islands. and fortresses. 

5.25 p.m. -- Kane sets up his new mythical creatures with his tree-slab blocks from Aunt Carrie. an entirely too long discussion about the proper pronunciation of Cerebus occurs among mommy and the Green siblings. 

6.10 p.m. -- so many iPhones to play with. 

7.00 p.m. -- bedtime stories with Grandpa D-Rock. Cam hearts Olivia.
