Family scrapbook - May

Taking in some major league action at a Toronto Blue Jays game. We like the cheap seats... less chance of getting hit by a foul ball.

Entertaining the baby cousin. It's nice to borrow a baby for a couple of hours. It's also nice to give that baby back, knowing changing that next diaper is not your problem.


Maggie likes soccer. She comes running for a hug every single time she even touches the ball.

Homer will love that I added this picture. He has some surgery on his sinuses. Despite taking 4 hours to wake up from the anesthetic (it should have taken 1 hour), everything seems to have gone well. He's still in a lot of pain/discomfort, but hopefully he'll suffer from fewer sinus infections. He may even get his sense of smell back.

Bart turned 6! This year I went the easy route and planned a bowling party. Soooo much less work than last year's superhero party, but they still had a blast. He wanted a cake with "Spiderman having a fight with Batman" and I actually considered giving it a shot. In the end I got lazy and just made this one. I also made some basketball and baseball cookies for him to take to share with his class on his actual birthday, but failed to get photo evidence.
May was fun, but a crazy, busy month. I'm hoping June lays off a bit.

How fun! We can't wait to take the girls to a game. We have a minor league here that is very affordable to go to their games ;P I love the bowling birthday party idea and the cake looks awesome. Our May was crazy too and it doesn't look like June is slowing down a bit.

Busy month! My M just started 4 year old soccer and I have to say it is the cutest thing every. D was so nervous he would avoid the ball, but M is right in there. FUN!

Who are these big, big kids???

I love your cake.

The cake is gorgeous, as is your whole family. Looks like a great month!

tell Homer my thoughts are with him! I had that surgery done a couple years ago, and it's only now that I'm getting my first sinus infection. That sure beats getting them once a month, or more!

He will be just fine, despite the fact that he will REALLY REALLY want to blow his nose for weeks before he actually can!

When did the kiddos get so big!!!???

Hub had his sinuses and deviated septum repaired 2 years ago. That surgery, plus having his tonsils out, has dramatically improved his quality of life. I can't even remember the last time he was sick. PLUS he doesn't snore anymore.

May is crazy for us as well AND I'm hoping June will be calmer too!

I love the soccer girlie! Mine hated it lol. Looks like you have a real athlete there!

Hope your hubby recovers quickly!

Great cake! Maggie is adorable! Lisa looks a lot like Homer. My husband needs a deviated septum fixed, but getting him to go to the doctor is a pain in the ass, so it'll probably never happen. We've been nuts here, too. I can't wait until school is over and it calms down!

Poor Homer. I cannot imagine not having a sense of SMELL?!
