5 Years Old

In less than a week, my BABY will be 5 years old. Wow! Everyone said time would fly by, and it sure has! The saying goes that with kids, "the days may be long, but the years are short." I probably think about the quote every time the kids birthdays come around!

Below is my annual tribute to Brookey's 5th year. Since I just don't have the time or patience to scrapbook anymore, I make these videos each year for the kids for their "digital scrapbook." It's so much fun to look back at all the pictures and videos from the year and to really see how much they've grown and how much they have accomplished! For the past 4 years, I have made Scott cry watching these videos...let's see if I can get him again this year!!! :)

Halloween 2010!

We all had such a great time for Halloween this year. Halloween used to be one of my LEAST favorite holidays...last year I had to force myself into scrubs and a stethoscope to be a doctor for my kids at school....but this year I 75% got into it!! Thanks to my friend Julie who is a queen of dressing up and was nice enough to loan Scott and coordinating costumes :) God forbid this Halloween-hating girl would actually BUY a costume!! But I can't believe it--next year, I am already actually looking forward to picking out MY OWN costume!! The priest and the nun worked out fine this year, but I wished I would have had it together enough to do a priest and a Catholic School Girl--that would have been way more fun and inappropriate! :) But I am happy--this is the first time Scott has EVER dressed up in the 10 years I have known him!!!

Both Brookey had Buddy had the time of their lives!! Buddy literally RAN from house to house once he figured out: you knock on the door, then you get to dig your hands into a bow of candy! He picked up on that pretty quickly!! :)

Any confessions?
