Today is hubby and my anniversary.  We’ve been married for 8 years.  Wow, time flies.  With 3 little ones, special anniversary celebrations don’t really exist.  Hubby knows the way to my heart – through sweets!  He bought my favorite…french silk pie!  Yum!  The girls and I enjoyed a piece tonight…

Even Brookie got a couple of spoonfuls.  She loved it!  I guess she’s not allergic to chocolate like her Mom was when she was a little girl.

Thanks babe – love you!

Happy Birthday to my niece Alyssa.  She turns 9 today!  I can remember when she was just a little thing.  She’s such a pretty girl with a great spirit!  Here’s a couple pics of Alyssa…

Have a great day!

Fun Bits for the Last Week… July 21, 2008

Fun bits for the week of July 14th…

* Birthdays and more birthdays…lots of pics to share…

We have an inflatable waterslide.  The kids enjoyed the water fun!  Kami went down a couple of times and then decided she had had enough. 

After she hit the water she would get up and clap for herself.

Another cute cake picture!

Brooke sharing her cake. 🙂

Kami asked for a fork to eat her cake.  She had her own smash cake but she wasn’t interested in smashing it.  She ate a couple of bites of frosting and was done.

It was a Mickey Mouse themed party so we had Mickey Mouse rice crispy treats!  Yum!

Our friend Megan enjoying the slide.

Our friend Kendall enjoying some cake.

*Leah enjoyed princess dance camp this past week.  She was in heaven! 

On the last day of camp, Leah’s family and friends were invited to a tea.  The camp instructor put makeup on the girls before their performance.  I know I’m biased, but I think she looks beautiful in this shot.  She’s so grown up!!  Boo Hoo Hoo Hoo. 😦

Leah’s friend Brooke also attended the camp.  Here they are doing a little dance for us.  Like I said, she was in heaven!

*  Brooke is still climbing on everything.  Here is a another pic of her in the rocking chair.  Everytime she gets up in the chair, she starts rocking.  She’s fallen a couple of times, but it hasn’t stopped her!

I’m sure there were funnies this week, but I just can’t remember any right now.  Too tired.

This was Brooke’s first birthday cake and as we expected, she dove right in.  Love it!  Thank you Holly for getting this shot!


Happy Birthday Baby Brooke!! July 16, 2008

Yep, if you’ve been reading my blog then you’re wondering…didn’t Kami just have a birthday?  Yes, she did.  Kami and Brooke are 367 days apart!  This makes things a little crazy around here!

Brooke (Brookie or Brookus as we like to call her) is 1 year old today.  She’s a sweetie with big cheeks and thighs.  Ever since she’s been mobile she’s been a happy baby!  These days she’s trying to get into everything and climb mountains (or rocking chairs anyhow).  The year has passed by so quickly!  It feels like she was born yesterday.


Love you cutie pie!
