The school party!

Here's Jacob's school party. Last year I had to take a store bought snacks but this year I was able to make cupcakes and take them. It was pretty cool. I didn't do anything fancy, just plain old cupcakes but the kids seemed to like them and it sure was fun. He got a pack of gum from his teacher and he seemed to think that was pretty awesome.
Here he is passing out the cupcakes. He got to pick a friend to help hold the plate. Pretty cool stuff when you are a 1st grader!
I don't get to visit Jacob's class as much as I would like to so I really enjoyed being able to spend a little time there. I took the rest of the kids and they all thought it was pretty cool to see big brothers friends. I still can't believe that he is 7. I really feel like it was just yesterday that we found out he was on his way and we were scared to death. Didn't think we were ready to be parents. He changed our lives more then we could have ever known and would never, ever change it for ANYTHING.

Oh and one more thing...he finally has his first loose tooth. I thought he may have lost it by his birthday but I'm sure I will be blogging about it soon....don't hold your breath though, sometimes it takes awhile.

So glad that you are back blogging again. Jacob looks like he is having a ball! If dad didn't have to be here for Sunday School, I'd be in the car right now heading for Spokane. I miss you all. Grandma

Me again.  I just forgot to comment on what a laugh that you and Ben didn't think you were ready to be parents.  You and the Avellas are the "best parents in the universe," don't you know.
