The Big 5

My Sweet,Precious,Adorable,Defiant BABY turned five on Monday! I can't believe it! I asked her on her birthday if she felt like she was five, and she said. "I feel a little bit five, but mostly I feel just like I did yesterday." She is the best kid! I have so much fun with Addison. She has her moments, and I think I have told some of you about her phase where she was asking everyone that came over, What the hell are you doing here. She is a firecraker and she fills my days with pure joy. I love you Addison, Happy Birthday!

Happy Easter!



Easter Sunday 2009

This weekend we had told the girls that we would take them camping. When it came right down to it, we decided that we could not afford to pull the trailer anywhere this weekend. So we camped out in the trailer 10 feet away from the house! We had so much fun. We had a fire pit, so we had a fire and made smores. Talked and laughed around the fire till it was much too late and then we all slept in the trailer. It was a little odd to replace the sounds of crikets and frogs and other outdoor camping noises with the neighborhood dog pack and the train, but it worked.
The girls can have fun anywhere and I am so glad that they are little enough not to have to realize what this economy has done to our budget. They don't care where they are as long as we are all together. Love that about them.. because I tend to stress and pout about the lack of money. What can I say those girls are always teaching me something!

Teenage mutant ninja Carly

I was just looking through some pictures today and I came across this photo of my girls. I had to laugh at the sheer ridiculousness of it! Then I must admit it made me sad. My girl are growing up so fast. How much longer will I have little children that dress up like teenage mutant ninja turtles and ride their motorcycle bike, with a ski helmet and goggles on. Or wear their princess shoes around pushing a naked doll in a stroller, or wear a ponytail directly on top of their head?!!!!
It makes me want to try harder to make sure that I don't take any of these moments for granted, because Carly is already grown out of this stuff and I know the other two are right behind her. I am so grateful for my girls....oh why do they have to grow up??
