Logan is FOUR!

I’m SOOOOO far behind with my postings!! I’m going to try to catch up…please bear with me 🙂

We celebrated Logan’s birthday on the 4th (his actual birth date), and I finally got the pictures off my phone to put up here 🙂

We started off with presents since we weren’t going to have dinner and cake until later in the day – and who wants to wait to play with presents?? 🙂

Logan's Presents

Pirate Logan

Logan's New Transformers Bike (Bumblebee)

My Dad – the shaped cake maker – made a Pirate Ship cake!

"L" for Logan and "C" for Aunt Cathy (her birthday is the 8th)


Friday’s Fotos: A Priate Ship and MNO

As I mentioned before, our kiddie pool from last year needed to be replaced.

Behold the pirate ship pool!


The Dread Pirate Logan

The Dread Pirate Burke

(Yes, those are inflatable pirate hat, shield, and sword – 2 sets! And an inflatable treasure chest as well. Oh and the cannons shoot water if you attach the hose. LOL!)


Last night, I attended the National Mom’s Night Out. (I may have mentioned one or two times that I put together 150 Swag Bags for this event…) It was sooooo much fun!! And my friends Tanya and VP helped out too!

Getting ready to unload the Swag Bags

Cupcakes from 5Bites Cupcakes

(The 5Bites Cupcakes were SO good! If you’re in the area, definitely give them a try.)

Waiting in Line for Things to Start

Edible Arrangements

(The Edible Arrangements fruit was good too – and went really fast!)

Refreshements Table

Mini Manicure

Make-up Sessions

Massage Chair

(The nails and massages were provided by Jesamondo Salon and Spa; the make-up was provided by Dianna Quagenti.)

And Land’s End provided very capable staff to do the swimsuit fittings. (I figured a picture of that would be a wee bit inappropriate though 😉 )

And the Swag Bags were such a hit that one woman begged for one for a “friend who is parking the car.” We told her that there were plenty and that when her friend got there, she could register for one herself. About 1/2 hour later, she was witnessed taking one of the bags that was behind the table! WHO DOES THAT?! We chatted quickly amongst ourselves and decided that we should go after her. Katie stepped up and got the bag back (explaining that the bags were meant to be one per person. GO Katie!!) Crazy night. But what a blast 🙂

Saturday Snapshot: Play, Play, Play

The kids were all playing VERY nicely together this morning! I *LOVE* it when that happens 🙂

First was the Playmobile Pirate’s Treasure

Logan, Burke, and Maggie

Then was the Lego tower

Logan and Maggie

Logan and Maggie

And yes, they’re all wearing pink (or purple), girly  PJs. It’s not fair that girl’s PJs are so much cooler than boy’s…and when Maggie received some that Burke liked, we figured it wouldn’t matter much if he wore them 🙂 And Logan’s are hand-me-downs (from his cousin Grey, actually LOL! 🙂 )

Makes My Monday: The Dread Pirate McQueen

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Head on over to see what else makes people’s Mondays (there are always some really good ones!)

Thursday Theater – OMG

Goddess hosts Thursday Theater. Wanna join in? Go add your name to the list!

This week’s theme is OMG: Anything that made you say, “OMG, I have to get this on video.”  Whether unbearable cuteness, ungodly messes, a clever new trick, or something that just screams “document me!”

Yep. I got that. We pulled out some things from the dress-up box on Monday… and even Logan wanted in on the fun.

Burke and Maggie – Pirate Dancers



(14 seconds)
Burke (and Daddy) sing the “Logan and Burke” song…while Logan (dressed in a tutu he refused to let me take off of him) beatboxes in the background.


And just so you get the whole picture, here are a few still shots.
