An Extra Day

I say it all the time, but I wish there was just a little more time in the day, or an extra day in the week. I have a million things that seem to always get pushed to "tomorrow".
Blogging has become one of those and I hate that. I just got my 2009 and 2010 blog books in the mail and I love them so much. I have done such a good job of documenting my kids with stories and pictures that they make the best journals. HOWEVER, This year I seem to have gone into a rut and cant quite find the way out.
Every day I think that I need to blog, but then something alittle more important comes first- always. So here I am to rededicate myself to the blog and sharing the wonderful stories of every day. I feel like I have gotten into a big events phase, and not so much the funny little stories that amuse me daily.
SO, with that... I have been painting our bedroom and our bathroom. I took the whole day Tuesday to do it and I love it. I was sick of the ocean blue color I had going on in there and the new OATBRAN is much more what I am feeling. Now I just need to find the right bedspread and curtains. I love redoing a little bit of something in the home, it just feels fresh and new.
So the story on the hair... I feel like every time we have painted a room in the house, I am 9 months pregnant and there are 2 things that ALWAYS get paint on them; my belly, and my hair. This time around, I have no pregnant belly but somehow I did get the paint in my hair. I swear, I did not do this on purpose! It is so bad right? I also get it all over my clothes, face, and legs, and Stephen managed to get some on his pants too. I'm awesome.

Last Saturday was Natalie's actual birthday and we decided after a long day of garage sale and soccer that we should go to Chuck-E-Cheese. Natalie loves the CEC and has been begging me to go soon. She was too scared to go see Chuck himself, and also too scared to go in the awesome ticket machine, but they had a lot of fun playing the games and getting their prizes at the end. Yes the adults had fun too, I love playing the games and get a little greedy when it comes to the kids coins. I found myself taking from boots' stash. Nice.
But Grandma, Grandpa, Eric, Kathleen, their kids, Garrett, and his cute girl were all able to come and have fun with us!

I can't believe my little girl is 5. It brings me to tears to think about this little beauty. I still remember when she was the first little addition to the family, VIVIDLY!! She is such a joy to have in our home and she is growing into the most beautiful little girl. She is kind, caring, gentle, Loves friends, Loves her Cousins, loves her sister, LOVES her shows, loves her babies, gives great snuggles and cuddles in the morning, and one of my favorites is she still loves her blanky like she did when she was a baby. She rubs and rubs that thing and sucks her little lower lip as soon as she gets in in her possession. I cant imagine our home without her sweet spirit and am so thankful everyday that we made the decision to have the little princess. Also, every year since she turned 1, I have thought it was the year of the hair. It wasn't until the last few months that I have truly noticed her hair growing in... so with that being said, I think 5 will be the year of the hair!! Love you Babe, Happy Birthday!

Nana and Grandad sent her this delicious cookie bouquet which was quickly eaten!! Thanks for making her feel so special you guys!
