This little beauty makes the whole family smile. She is constantly smiling and socializing with whomever she comes in contact. We love this little one. We love that she loves binkies. She sleeps with at least 6 of them every night.
Life is pure chaos these days. But I think I like it.
I am no longer a working mom...but a stay at home mom. Let me tell you, it is so hard to be a working mom. I am not sure why I did it so long. I love staying home with my 4 kids. I don't shower everyday (yuck) and sometimes forget to brush my teeth (double yuck). But I get to be home with my 4 favorite people. I am happy (and a little tired).
Good luck to all those moms out there!
Holland and Ethan turned 5!!! We celebrated 3 times...once with family in Utah, once on their REAL birthday, and at last with their friends.
The friend party was a big deal. Ethan had a "train" party and Holland had a "unicorn" party. The best part was watching the kids try to break open 2 pinatas. Ethan's face is classic (see photo below). H & E felt really special that day. It was lots of fun!
This year we spent the 4th doing what we usually do. Parade in Winnetka, Races, and Glencoe Fireworks at the beach. This year the Thatchers joined us. It was fun for all.
The most memorable part--The little girls first 4th of July. Don't they look sweet in their polka dot outfits? In addition, Tina and I ran in the Winnetka Races. I took last place, I think. It was a sad sight. I ran the 65 yard dash in like 5 minutes. That is how out of shape I am. Ryan got it all on videotape too.
All in all it was a great day!!!
