Asher is 6!!!
Birthday boy! What a handsome guy!
The view from Salem Sue!
This is Asher's favorite thing at the science museum!
Macie threw a tantrum because we had to correct some bad behavior...so, she decided to crawl around on the floor and whimper. Perry followed suit. Kind of funny.
First cake ever purchased from a REAL bakery!
I cannot believe it's been six years...anyone who knows me, knows I have a hard time with my kids growing up. And it seems like Asher has grown up faster than Zeke, and Macie faster than Asher. Uhh...stop time, stop!
This morning, my sweet sons came to wake me up at 4-something in the morning. Love you, sons, but no. No, no, no, no. Mama doesn't do before the sun gets up. Lol. So, I sent them back to their room until about 7:30 when we all got up and Asher opened his presents. My country boy asked for the traditional breakfast and that he and his brother love so much and on get on special occasions these days... after breakfast and getting ready, we headed out. We first went to see "Salem Sue", the big cow. Asher wanted to go to the science museum so we did that next. Then lunch. After that, we headed out to this farm of this couple who breed quarter horses and border collies. We got a sweet little pup that the kids named Ruby Nicky (in honor of an old family dog) Robinson. She was born February 8th. Such a little and sweet thing! Our hope is that things will work out better with having a puppy who we raise...things didn't go well with Kotah - I THINK because he was tossed from home to home, he was danger to the children and ended up biting. As a family with three young kids, I just can't do a dog with behavior issues. Sorry. Ruby is a sweetheart and all the kids enjoy her. We hit up Pets Mart for a few things, then picked up Asher's cake, then had to stop by the store for a new vacuum (especially important now as we have a dog) then home for dinner and cake. Afterwards, everyone curled up on the couch to watch the movie Frozen. Asher enjoyed getting phone calls from his friends in Georgia, grandma, and aunt Beth.
Well, Asher son, I love you so much and am incredibly proud of the young man you're becoming!!! Happy Birthday, sweetheart!
Here's some more pics of our new pup.
