a very merry un-birthday

have you ever watched "Alice in Wonderland"?

in that movie there is a scene- the mad hatter tea party- where they are celebrating a very merry un-birthday. in fact they sing a song about it. it's actually a pretty comical part.

well, i got a note from braxton's teacher about celebrating his un-birthday or half-birthday this week since he has a summer birthday and doesn't get a school party like the others. sure, i thought, i've never thought of doing this, but sure. braxton was pumped- he loves a celebration. he knew i was coming at the end of the day with a treat- i surprised him with a huge yummy cookie that the class shared. fun was had by all...

yes, i know it's a weird pic. i was just trying to not post a real clear pic of anyone else's kids. is it even legal to post others kids? i'm not sure?

like we don't party enough around here already:)

Courtney,
I have always felt that if you don't put any last names or really personal info, that it is ok to post photos with their buddies!

If someone told me they didn't want their child's photos on my blog, I would just remove that photo/info. :)
Love ya!

Hey girl! I meant to tell you this a while back but I told Dr. Moore (alderman here in Franklin) about you adopting out of Ethiopia and he told me to let you know if you guys need any help or anything to let him know. He's done some medical work there and said he might have some contacts there if needed. And happy unbirthday to Braxton!
