I cannot believe five years ago today out popped this chunky lil bundle of joy...10 lbs of joy I might add! Crazy! But the most incredible time in my life welcoming this baby boy to our family! Today he's five! And time if just not fair! So wanted to wish him a happy birthday. We'll be pampering him all day today and celebrating his birthday this weekend. :) So like 2 birthdays! How fun! :) Hope your day is filled with joy!
OOoh!!!! Just wanted to share a few fun things! First off..did you see? Sarah V has a sweet Bloggie Birthday challenge up! Go check it out! Winner will win a sweet GC to the shoppe! Also, tomorrow is Joshie's 5th birthday! Ahhh! Today he took these cupcakes to class to share. Aren't these cute? These totally remind me of when I was a kid..the little pressed sugar decorations. Love them!
And looove this camera strap! This sweetie on Etsy made it. Such a fun change to shooting pics! :)
OH wow! And for those of you who love FREEBIES, check out my sweet friend's blog! She is my sweet friend who knitted this awesome purse for Chayce! Um...yeah..sign up for this contest! Good luck to you all! :)
Oh my! I hate chickens! LOL And I hate kitchen clocks! Don't ask my why. I just don't like them! LOL And this morning when the boys and I hit a few shoppes, Matt saw this clock. And kept saying"Mommy, that's a Cuckoo clock". I'm like "not really Mattie but it's a chicken". Anyways, we were in the store for awhile. Matt kept going back to this watching the pendulum swing back and forth. He became more and more intrigued watching it and kept commenting on how neat it was. And mommy is such a softy...it came home with us. It's in the kitchen where Mattie can see it all the time and for sure he has commented on this new Cuckoo clock near the dining room table where we eat all our meals. LOL I mean seriously, how could I NOT get it? LOL
Just also wanted to share a few things the QUEENS have done at the site.

going on here! LOL NO seriously, love ya Shar! Ty for your post. I am swamped here but for sure have enjoyed it. Hope you are all doing well. Here's how our Saturday went. Very exciting eh? LOL No really...I got up early Saturday morning and made fresh cranberry scones. Yum! I rarely do this so it was a fun thing to surprise Chris with. They were pretty scrumptious too!
So after breakfast we headed up to the snow. Notice no pics? I didn't haul my huge camera with me this time. Was kinda nice too. But had a pretty rad time. It had snowed 4 feet so we were having fun getting stuck as we climbed the mountain. It was pretty funny but Mattie did not like it. LOL
Then we had to get home in time to watch the Greenbay Seattle football game. Trust me my hubby is a Greenbay Diehard fan. Loooves this team. So it was fun to watch. Especially when it snowed! And hooray..they won! Rock on Greenbay!
And while the game was on, the kids were having fun with their xmas toys. Josh copied the cover of this awesome toy and I was totally shocked because the picture is at an angle so kinda hard to make out what pieces went where. And he did it. So proud of him. :) K back to fun and lil princess is heading home soon with daddy so wanna be 'computer free' when she walks in the door!
Had to go back and peek through some fun photos of the kids and thought "holy moly I have got to scrap this one". LOL This is Mattie at about 9 mos old and his sissy made his hair like this. Totally hilarious. Our little Punk Rock baby! LOL
OMG first off..I think I found a new show, well new to me, that is just hilarious! Celebrity Apprentice. I was dying last night at the Omarosa chick. Holy Moly! And at Gene Simmons calling all his contacts so the guys group could win. Hilarious. OMG!
This morning we're having a blizzard. :) So we headed out today to do some errands. Not too bad. And had to stop here for another Sugar Free Gingerbread Latte. I figured they were all done selling winter holiday drinks but I managed to get another one out of them. :) And got a bottle of the sugar free syrup to take home with me as well. :) Deann, you can come over to my house girl! LOL Had a lovely talk with my sweet friend Em the other day. It continually amazes me to finally put the voice to the designer, bloggier, friend, emailer and chatter. LOL She's a darling!
Truly such an honor to have a kit up at this site. Meredith and Jan were the bestest to work with! And the charity is for the Lupus foundation. With the recent loss of a dear friend, it meant the world to me to have the proceeds go here and to have my share in the kit be dedicated to her. Go check it out here. :) It makes my heart sing.
