Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a blog. She would post pictures and things for people far away to see.
At first it was fun. Then, as time went on, it began to feel like a chore.
The girl started MAKING herself blog, before she was allowed to do other things that she actually wanted to.
Then the girl realized she was 31 years old, and shouldn't be wasting her time doing something she doesn't want to.
So she quit posting on the blog.
And the girl was happy.

Things ended up being scheduled in such a way that we had to have Caleb's 6th birthday party while Kenn was in Hungary. The day he was getting home, no less. But luckily, my BFF Rashelle was here with us the whole week Kenn was gone, and she helped me decorate and do everything, so it actually went fabulously. And Caleb loved every bit of it, which made this mama happy. :)
Rashelle drew this! Awesome, right?
blindfold and tails for the T-rex
goodie buckets for the kiddos
Our awesome decorations--Rashelle made the banner, too!
Click the picture so you can see how awesome it is.

Dinosaur Egg Hatch!
Beckett couldn't get his 'egg' to 'hatch,' so Caleb helped :)
playing 'Long Dinosaur Tail'
some cute boys waiting for cupcakes
And I include many pictures because
Caleb makes the BEST faces!
And last, some pics of Caleb and his friend Lexie. She moved to Houston a few weeks after the party, but her mom got these cute pics of them and emailed them to me.
Awesome dinosaur party for my awesome kid. I LOVE my little man!
(And thanks to Rashelle for taking all the pics while I ran the party!!! )
The title of this post refers to the fact that this is ALL pictures of my children, pictures of them being cute--of them being cute as BUGS. :)
funny smiley Avi-face to start off the month o' June
Also to start off the month, some bottom teeth beginning to appear...oy
and a baby sneeze, for funsies
Beckett found a funny way to sleep one night
Avi started what is now a permanent habit
and she started holding on to things! so fun!
I tried making masking tape roads to occupy the boys--
it lasted for about 30 minutes before they were over it.
Cutest. Avi. Picture. Ever.
painting some bird houses
mommy's FAVORITE 6M-size outfit--LOVE it :D

the boys, ready for soccer practice!
Beckett, ready for a soccer game! (wait....)
Caleb zonked out, too, dreaming of flying to the rescue
and Avi caught the sleep-bug as well, or is just bored by soccer games
I don't know why she's bored, though--
once we got B to go out on the field, it was the cutest thing ever
sending daddy some love via Instagram
And sitting with mom for (another) soccer game
See? Cute as bugs, CUTE bugs :D
