The best compliment...

This morning the boys and I headed to the party store to buy the goods for Harrison's party on Saturday. Harrison is very excited about his party at the local fire station! He was also very excited about "going in my minivan to the party store".

First of all, the owners of the store were so helpful. He saw me headed in the store-with the double stroller and Harrison holding on to it-and put down his stuff to hold the door open for me. He pointed me in the right direction and helped me with any request I had. I LOVE great customer service-it seems few and far between these days.

Anyway, he gave me one of the best compliments a mom can get. As we were walking through the store he stopped me and said, "Mam, I just have to tell you this. Your child is one of the most well-behaved children I've ever come in contact with. Normally children his age are running wild in this store, but he is listening to you and walking right next to you". He didn't have to tell me that, but he did. I must admit, I was pretty surprised at how well-behaved he was being with all of the pinatas, balloons, and streamers hanging from the ceiling.

My baby is growing up! Actually all of my babies are growing so fast. I'm treasuring this time when they are small because I know one day it will pass in an instant. Anyway, I still can't believe that my "baby boy" Harrison will be 3 next week. He is becoming such a little man! With that I'll leave you with some pics of the boys.

I LOVE birthday parties! Such fun. I see lots of red icing in your future. Nick had a firetruck party this year and the truck came to the house. So much fun to see their faces get so excited. I know you'll take lots of pictures and send them our way. By the way, I tried (or I should say Goody) your fish taco recipe this evening on the neighbors and it was a big hit. Even their 6 year old girl ate them. Thanks!
