Something to make me smile!

Family Celebrations of Jacob's birthday on the actual day.

Sarah fell asleep eating the other day. So cute.

Sarah while playing with the dog food, and then after the dog food was taken away. Poor dogs now have to wait until she is in bed to eat.

Party Time!

We had a bowling birthday party for Jacob. The kids had a great time! The Batman cake was yummy and I totally love cupcake cakes! So easy to work with! Thank you to all our friends for joining us this day to celebrate Jacob's big day! He was very happy to have all the kids sleep over! The kids went to bed both nights so well and easy! It was a great family day weekend!

The only trouble was the adults stayed up way to late!!!! Did I say was TOO LATE! I will be suffering those consequences tomorrow!

This sums it up!

I read this on a new blog I found and it is so true for me too.

The original author can be found at 4 little men and girly twins blog She gave people permission to copy as long as we mentioned where we got it from.

my house is spotless, except when it'Align Centers not picked up
my bathrooms sparkle, except after boys use it
I make a nutritious meal every night, except when we eat out
my children are not loud, except when they raise their voices
my laundry is always done, except when we wear clothes
my children obey the first time, except when they don't listen
the dishes are always clean, except when we use them
my toddler is potty trained, except when he wears a diaper
my spelling and grammar is perfect, except when I don't double check it
my children don't eat sugar, except when we have treats
we always use cloth diapers, except when we use disposables
my children cloths always match, except when they don't
my children always go to bed on time, except when they stay up late
we don't watch TV, except when we watch a movie
my children don't break dishes, except when they drop them
my children put their toys away, except when they leave them out
we read a bible story everyday, except when I forget
I never say anything wrong, except when I misspeak
I am never late, except when we're running behind
I am never stressed, except when I have too much to do
my marriage is perfect, except when I don't make it a priority
my children never act out in public, except when they are being unruly
there is no chaos in our house, except when we are home
I am put together everyday, except when I don't take a shower
my hair looks perfect, except when I have a bad hair day
my babies sleep through the night, except when they wake up to eat
my windows are clean, except when little fingers touch them
I always finish my to-do list each day, except when I don't get it done
I am not selfish, except when I put myself first
I live my life for Jesus I love my family I am a sinner
I am not perfect I am a regular mama
I can not do it all on my own I am learning everyday
I do not know everything I am just like you
I am Me

Jacob is 6 years old today! Wow! He is turning into quite the little man! He is so helpful and loving with his sister and a great friend to his brother. I signed him up this week to be apart of the "bookworm" club and was totally surprised when he READ the book he brought home to me! And it was a book with two to three sentences per page! He is sooooo keen to read. He wants to get better and better! He has been adding and subtracting some basic facts as well. Lots of learning this hear in Senior kindergarten. I am amazed at how much they do at school here in kindergarten.

Jacob loves playing board games. He loves the wii of course! He is actually quite good at it. Way better than me! For any of you who have played the tanks game on wii, Jacob has made it up to level 16 so far. He is his father child in that respect!

He loves his friends and really enjoys playing with them and spending time with them. He was very excited about our trip to Mexico and seeing his friends there. Special for me to watch. He is enthusiastic happy child. He has a very vivid imagination and watching him play star wars, Indiana Jones or right now....Ben 10 is fun to do. LOUD but fun!

He has the best giggle and it is contagious when he starts. He loves pizza, pancakes, and red peppers. He really isn't a sweet eater. He took mini cupcakes to school and handed them all out but he didn't actually eat one! I wish I was able to turn it down! His new favorite treat is dip with some chips.

I can not believe he is SIX! He was such a little baby and so beautiful with all that hair! When he is older and blonder he sure looks like Sarah.

Jacob I am so blessed to be your Mother! I hope you have a great birthday and a great year being 6! Lets try not to rush forward to SEVEN!!! Love you lots! Mommy!

Mexico I miss you!

We loved being in the ocean. The water was beautiful and warmer than the pool!
Peek-A-BOO girl hiding out from the sun....but so cute!

Playing in the ocean again!

Playing on the beach.
Mexico was a great trip!!! The weather, the ocean, the beach! But lets be honest....I loved having someone make my bed everyday and cook all the meals!!!
