birthday bash entry 1 – Miss Shelly

Miss Shelly.”

Say that name in our house and two small humans come sprinting and ask, “Where is she?  When is she coming?”  Seriously.  It gets as much response as if I would say “free ice cream to the first one here!”  I’m not kidding.

IMG_7434Miss Shelly has been a blessing to our family as she serves us by allowing the parental units to head out for nights on the town –free of charges – and full of fun things for the kids.  They make crafts, there is a treasure box, they have treats and I’m not sure how she does it, but they are in bed and sleeping when we come home.  Man, she’s good.

To kick off the birthday celebrations for Bubba, Miss Shelly brought over a very special birthday cake, and a very special project to commence the festivous week.  (I know that isn’t a word, but it should be.  There should be an adjective form of festival.  And yes, I know that if you are a Seinfeld watcher there is such a thing as “Festivus”.)  She brought a cake complete with gummi worms, icing and some kind of toffee stuff.  And it was delicious.

Just needed to share the first of the “festivous” occasions.

Festivus For The Rest-of-Us! One of our favorite Seinfeld episodes! I wholeheartedly agree that it should be a word!
