Happy 8th Birthday Frodo

Frodo turns 8. He was thrilled to finally get out of a car booster seat. One day we had a pizza party with fudgey brownies for dessert. Another day we celebrated with yet more family and had chocolate pies. So on his actual birthday, I opted for good old fashioned Rice Krispie bars. (*not* that anyone is sick of chocolate mind you!)

It must be mentioned our family oddity. With the birth of Bilbo we now have 1 birthday per month (with Aragorn and Pippin sharing a day) from December to September. All the men had birthdays on even days and all the women had birthdays on odd days... Bilbo arrived on the wrong day as he came on an odd day.... messing up our family oddity.. we'll keep him just the same.


  1. You have such a beautiful family! How do you do it all? They all look so happy and look as if they play very well together! Your new baby is just precious! We are expecting #5 in April. God bless you!

  2. Nice to "meet" you Cheryl. Congrats on #5! That is wonderful! Children are children so their play world isn't always ideal. We manage only by the Grace of God, frequent Confession, Mass and Rosary.
