in about 24 son will be 7yrs old

GOSH-where have those 7 yrs gone? He was born about 8 weeks early weighing 4 1/2 pounds.He was in NICU for 21 days.Amazing to see him now you would never know that.He's a happy,healthy,vibrant 7 yr old little boy.He is tall for his age.He must get that from my 6'1" sister--cause I'm barely 5'2".

For his cake tomorrow I plan on making a strawberry cake with strawberry frosing (per his request LOL)--and hopefully I'll be able to roll out some fondant and cut out some doggie bones and other doggie shapes and decorate the cake with them.I plan on making doggie bone cookies too.But you know how plans go sometimes.I'm going to bake the cakes tonight and depending on how I feel after they are cool either decorate them tonight or saturday morning like I usually do.We'll see.Right now I'm taking a break from housecleaning-I've gotten half the house mopped and freshened.I will do the kitchen and the bathroom last thing tonight so they will still be "company clean" tomorrow.It's supposed to be raining so I hope that doesn't keep the kiddies away.Just talked to one "grandma" and both of her little ones are sick with dental problems and ear infections so not sure they will be able to come--totally understandable.There's nothing worse for a 2yr old than an ear infection that just won't quit.From what I understand,Conner has had ear infection problems this whole year-including having a set of tubes put in--Poor thing.And Chandler has had dental issues.Poor sweetie.She is adorable.
I've managed to get 2 gifts wrapped and haven't decided if another will be for birthday or from santa.I'll have to think on that a bit.It's a plushie dalmation puppy-so it would go well for birthday but thing it would be even cuter sitting under the christmas tree christmas morning.
