I texted Ethan what kind of cake and ice cream he wanted. He texted me as I was by the store, so I ran in and got angel food cake, strawberries, and whipped cream. I was home to send of the girls, thank you Abi for being such a good responsible daughter, and yay, I survived the morning! Hopefully this run through will make me not lose sleep with Joseph's teeth extraction appointment next week, which we are hoping that we don't have to cancel, because his mission papers didn't arrive today! Boo!! Our bishop told us that is has been assigned so we are pretty positive it should be here this week, cause with his friends, their calls are usually dated on a Tuesday, and then they arrived the following Thursday, two days after they were dated. Hmm, hopefully they're just a day late. The mail came early today at 3:15. I had already checked, but Joseph checked again too. Well, if you're gonna check, let me get a picture, so I can blog about it not coming...
"ETHAN IS 16!" My mom brought by a cake and present while we were away at Lily's show. Ethan loved the bow ties.
Ethan got home from his lesson and we finally had cake and ice cream around 8:30.
Here we are all gathered around for cake - just a typical night at the Wrides. Lily, dressed as a pirate there on the left, Owen running around in his diaper. 5 kids at the bar - we usually don't get all 11 kids in pictures! Wow, go me. And you can see Corey's blue sleeved shirt on the right side there too. Everyone's at home and ready to dig in.
