Hooray for Uncle Dave!

Waiting, waiting, waiting & finally Uncle Dave shows up! After all the high pitch squeels & hugging, the girls decide to let him in the house while constantly repeating his name & telling him all sorts of important information but then...they are silent while watching their company eat dinner...(this is their favorite past time)
He really came to celebrate James' birday...b/c he's a natural at making a party appear more partyish. When James left for work Eliza said "big people birthdays are a lot more boring than kids birthdays huh mom?" Can't argue with the girl, notice he opened one gift & it wasn't even a toy! I promise to my husband that in 7 years on his 40th we'll make it a bash! (I need those years to plan, I don't like to pressure myself)

They were looking forward to the evening b/c they (all 4 girls) made his birthday cake all by themselves, I really tried hard to hold myself back from wanting to stir & frost but with the encouragement of a friend who was taking their pictures throughout the whole process, it was more fun letting them do it all!

I warned the boys that this cake had been licked, slobbered & sneezed on but they still wanted a slice (okay, maybe I didn't tell them it was sneezed on, oh well) Summer was very proud of all the Frinkles they piled on the top of it so it did look pretty yummy!
I think James will get his wish..."I wish to get more than one present next year"

While Uncle Dave had to leave during the day to take care of business & was busy working (something to do with the mafia)
the kids kept themselves busy playing with friends in the leaves. The cold weather has finally come, so sad. I had to hide Liza's favorite shorts & flip flops b/c she thinks that weather should not determine what you should wear.

Then Saturday morning comes & the crazy Uncle has a crazy idea to go for a walk with the girls. He didn't believe us when we said that it was reeeeally cold...until he got home.
Tessa was freaking out b/c she had a runny nose & no tissue so guess what Dave does? He wipes her nose with his own fingers...I know, I know your cringing as your reading but it's pretty funny to me b/c it just proves what you'll do to get a 5 year old to chill out.

Now he's pooped out with the rest of them!

Now he's home. glad for him, sad for us.
This morning...the day after, I was making scrambled eggs & Summer & Tessa both claimed to have uncle dave's recipe to make his yummy eggs, here it is...
"just get some of that frosting stuff & stir it in like this & that's it mom, okay?"
He used some of my leftover caramel frosting & obviously scrambled eggs will never be the same!

Zana!!! How are you.... It's so great to hear from you. What an adorable family. I can't believe you have all of those cute little girls. They are so sweet. Wow.....
I love that you are a blogger. It is such a great way to stay in touch. Now we can keep in touch. By the way......I loved the costume idea. It's nice to see that we are still having fun.
My Twilight Party was such a great time. I wish you could have been here. It was a night to remember. Lets keep in touch.
Oh, about the camera. It is a piece of crap camera that I have to slam on the side to get it to turn on. Time to get a new camera, but I have to say it's been a pretty good one anyway. Cannon 5m.

Guncle Dave is NEVER coming again without us!! It's been torture to hear all the adorable girl stories! His final word was they are still "little" - Whew! You keep them that way until the rest of us can get of today, that will be sooner than later!
