One Year Older and Wiser, Too

Happy Birthday to Jared on the 26th! We had crepes for breakfast (a first in this household, and not the last...)

When Jared finally got home from a long day at school (where no one knew it was his birthday, by the way), we had birthday pie-- it's common on the Laney side to request a pie instead of a cake. Cherry streusel pie.Neither of us can believe how old he is.

Isaac helped sing "Happy Birthday"...

...then promptly buried the candles in the pie while we were getting plates, ice cream and utensils. Here lies a thirty-one.Jared looks like he's practicing some newly-acquired NP skills.

And now for something completely different:

We got this beautiful quilt in Jared's birthday package from Mama Laney in CA. It goes with a Noah's Friends pillow/book she made for Noah around Christmastime. Check out the corner animals-- they have moving tails! It has all different textures and pieces...we love it and I can't stop raving about it.

DANGIT!!! and I just talked to you YESTERDAY! Sheesh, there's no coming out on top with this one. Happy Birthday Jared, we really do think the world of you (even though we look completely inconsiderate right now). Aren't you glad the calendar you gave us has kept us on top of everyone's birthdays??? BAH!

Happy birthday Jared. I am right behind you with turning 31.

Laurel, I love your Monty Python reference.

And nice quilt. I wish I had that talent.

Jared you old man! Happy Birthday! Sorry you had to be at school all day. Sometimes its better that way though now when we're older - that nobody knows. But what a wonderful wife to make you a pie - it looks good Laurel.

Hope you guys are well. We continue to miss you!

Happy late birthday, Jared! I had no idea you're about the same age as Cody...he turned 31 in September. So I don't think you're old at all. It looks like you made sure he was well-celebrated, Laurel =) Good job!

Beautiful quilt, by the way. That's amazing.

I can't believe I have a cousin who is SO OLD. It looks like you had a good birthday-and good work on the pie Laurel, that is almost as impressive as Noah's quilt!
