Uno, Dos...Tres!

On Oct. 9th, 2003 we had numero uno. On December 27th, 2005 we had numero dos. And, with a due date of April 1st, 2007 numero tres will be here. Luckily, I have the ability to kind of pick the date I now have my kids on being that I will have a scheduled c-section. So, I will of course not put my kid through the utter ridicule that would accompany someone with an "April Fools" birthday. We are of course hoping for a little female broberg. We'll see.

Superman likes juice, not water

Well, first of all I'd like to say sorry for taking so long getting back to blogger world. Things have finally settled down here a little. I found myself getting on the internet lately and checking everybody else's blog and decided it was time to write something myself. Jacob had his third birthday this last monday. We had "just" family over for the big event. But, for those of you who know how much family we now have living near us, you know that meant 10 kids, 2 sets of grandparents, and another six adults. Plus, sue and the kids stopped over. So, we had a good crew here. My son has a passion for anything trains or planes, so that was the theme for our party. One of his favorite gifts was his superman outfit. He has been playing superman a lot lately and so I have spent good chunks of entire days clothespinning a hand towel around his neck to make a cape. The other morning he was in his superman outfit and asked for something to drink. I said "okay, jacob, what do you want?" He turned and looked at me as if I had just called him some strange name that he had never heard before. There was a couple seconds of silence and then the reply. "It's superman." I said, "do you want some water superman?" and the reply again, "Superman likes juice, not water." I had to laugh at that one.

Here he is with great bed head and his new thomas the train jammies.

The kids taking turns whacking the thomas the train pinata.

The train cake that jakers requested. I am humbled by my frosting and cake decorating abilities.
