Happy Birthday Baby!

It's been a full week of birthday celebrations! Let me tell you, we have done FIVE right in this household! Although let me tell you, we are still having a hard time believing that our little baby turned five this week...where does the time go? Her big birthday wish this year was to go to the Aquarium, to which we happily obliged!

I really love this image!

This dog drove me crazy!! He was rude, didn't listen to me, ate everything in sight, coughed like a fiend, slobbered, shed like nobody's business, neurotically chased balls, and just tolerated me & the kids. But, he loved my husband unconditionally, and the feeling was mutual!

He will be greatly missed!

Last night, this sweet, beautiful child of mine told me..."I like my friends moms better than you!" Seriously, she did! Then she added..."I like Dad more than you!" She thought about it a minute and said..."No, no, I LOVE him more than you!"

I'm sure you are asking yourself what my infraction was that caused this outburst...I was merely getting her ready for bed. That's it. Getting ready for bed. Can you imagine what is going to spew from her mouth when I tell her she can't go on a date with THAT boy? Hopefully, that will be at least a few years from now!

Christmas card?

This doesn't happen often...and there are very good reasons...

1. Mom is ALWAYS taking the photographs!
2. No one EVER wants to take the 5 minutes it takes to get this photograph!
3. it ALWAYS, ALWAYS ends up with screaming, crying and or fussing!

Don't be surprised if you see this on our 2010 Christmas card...Geez!

Speed Racer

Last weekend my peeps participated in a local 5k race. I'm proud to say that everyone finished, some came in 1st in their race, 1st in their bracket and some came in...says the one who didn't race!!
