Gabe's 7th Birthday

I am little late on posting this (ok you can stop laughing I know I am always late on my post). Well a few weeks ago it was Gabes birthday. (Feb. 12th that is) He wanted to have a monkey party for his birthday. So for my little monkey that it is what I tried to do.
This the monkey cake that I made this year. I am actually pretty pleased with the way that it turned out. I do think that it is my best one yet.
Of course the monkey came out during a play with big brother.

Of course he needed a new monkey for his collection. Daddy made him this one, I think that he was pleased with the turn out.
Sorry for the blurry picture but when the little monkey wanted to move, he moved. LOL
A new webkinz from his big brother. I believe the sound that came out at this point, was the howler monkey.
Some new monkey toys to play with.

Proudly showing off the new t-shirt that his dad made for him.

This is a onsie that Dh painted to go on the new monkey that he made for him.

This is the same monkey that he is holding in the picture above. His dad made it and he loves it.

These are the pajama pants that I made for him. Sorry aabout the bad picture. It is a combination of poor lighting and a child that never stays still. I actually made these out of one of his old top sheets. He loves them. He spends most of his days in them.
Well as you can see from the pictures he had a pretty good birthday. I am just pleased that i got this posted before the month ended. :0)

Did you miss us? I do see that some of you are still here after all this time, so thanks for that. I am sorry that I have been gone for so long. Life has been crazily busy around here but really good. I mean how could it not be good look at those little faces, I get to spend my whole day looking at that. I do have to say I am pretty lucky on that.
Since my last post I have become the dreaded tax season widow, yuck! That makes my days a little more full. It is probably the main reason that I have not gotten back here. Which stinks because I really do love this blog. I am going to put in more of an effort to get things done on here because I feel so much better after it is done. (Now that it is written maybe it will actually happen.)
We are still very busy with dance classes for the boys. Gabe is doing his Tap, Ballet, Hip Hop, and Acro. Sam is doing a Tap class too. He is in Hip Hop and Acro with Gabe. They are really excited because they have now started practicing their routines for the recital.
Another big change was that Gabe went and turned 7 on us. Where did the time go. My little baby is getting so big. Even though it is sad to see him turn older I have to admit I was glad that his birthday finally happened, he was a bit on the excited side this year. He started planning it back in October. LOL
Still very busy with the homeschooling. The kids are loving it so much. Sam is showing such a maturity in his work now. It is a lot less of a fight to get him to do his work. He is taking a lot more pride in it to. So that is really wonderful. Gabe is doing better, still some fight in him though. It works best for him if I can make lessons where he can move, that is rough though when he has to practice writing.
If I was not busy enough with all of that, I have decided to try and open my own crafting business. I know I am definetly losing it. I am taking my time on getting everything together for it. Hopefully soon I will be up and running with it. Since I am going to start the business I want to be able to put some stuff on my blog about it. I was thinking of adding tabs along the top to keep things seperated. Does anyone know how to do that? I would appreciate any help that you could give me. Thanks in advance.
So that is pretty much what we have been up to around here. What have you all been doing I would love to know.
Alright I am off to try and type up a few more entries to post over the next few days. Try and get ahead of the game. LOL Good night all.
