Where Have You Been???


Oh, wait….it’s me that’s been gone from the blogging world for almost a YEAR!  I have been wanting to get back to blogging, but time kept getting away from me and then I had no idea where to even start with blogging again.  Really, after a year, it’s hard to pick a starting point.  I guess I will pick some random events, and get started! 

I can not believe that the kids are 4 1/2 and are going to start preschool in just a few short days.  I am so proud of how far we have come, but preschool?  Already?  I’m not sure I’m ready for it!  It’s only four days a week for 3 1/2 hours each day, but that is way more than I have ever been away from my kiddos!  The short break every day will be nice, and I am excited to be able to clean my house and keep it clean for a few hours every day, and I am super excited to have some ME time….something I very rarely give myself! 

Speaking of being 4 years old…..how about we start by looking back at the kids 4th birthday party (I know it was 6 months ago, but better late than never!)?  They had a great party, with lots of family and special friends.  They all had a different idea for birthday cake ideas, so I compromised and got one big cake divided into four little cakes all with a different design.  They were happy, but I think next year I will make cakes myself and save a little money.  The kids and I love to bake so it will be a fun project for us anyways.  Now…on to some pictures!

The Birthday Cake!  Wiggles for the boys and Princesses for Parker! 



Cooper spent the first part of the party snuggled up with Nana.  He got hurt (mostly his feelings) and decided to take full advantage of the alone time with Nana.

Getting ready for the Happy Birthday song(s)

Blow out those candles Kaden!



Brett listening to everyone sing Happy Birthday to him!



Happy Birthday Cooper!



Cooper was feeling too shy to blow out his candles



Parker wouldn’t look at anyone while we sang Happy Birthday to her



The boys showing Aunt Trisha how cool their cake is



Opening Presents!  Thanks Uncle Shane, Aunt Vicki and Kenleigh for all the cool new playdough stuff!  Definitely one of our favorite things to play with!



More presents!  My kiddos are so blessed to have so many people that love them!



Checking out their tennis rackets from Nana.  One of Brett’s favorite gifts!  We use them a lot and Brett is getting pretty good! 



More posts coming soon…..I promise!
