A Good Birthday, Indeed

Explain to me why two of my children (the two that I have to DRAG out of bed at 7:00 on a school day) were wide awake, in my bed, giggling at 6:15 this morning.

Could it be the birthday excitement?
  The day started with breakfast on the birthday plate:
And presents!  
This is what a present wrapped by an 8-year-old boy looks like:
This is what receiving the BEST PRESENTS IN THE WORLD looks like:
A kit to make snow globes,

and a kit to make chocolate candy pops! 
(How well does he know her?)
Somehow the outing of the day was bowling. (?)
(She poses herself, I swear!)

Some things never change:
(Lucky Jim got the groovy teal laces!)

Her ball moved in slow motion.  Every. single. time.  It was like watching paint dry!

But they had fun. (Although, at $35 for us all to bowl ONE game, I think it will be Wii bowling from now on!)
She sang herself to sleep.
I don't know what happened to this one!
They are all swimming shivering at the Arctic pool.  And I am enjoying a moment of peace.

But the picture of Carolyn sprawled out in the chair makes her look like such a big girl!!!
