Oh brother!

So Madeleine hated the pics I posted of her in the last birthday post and made me delete them so I agreed to find a new one and now a new post (eyes rolling). Mads turned 11 in May and I can't even believe how fast the time has flown by. I don't know what I would do with out her, my little Moozey moo. she has always been so witty and funny since she first learned to talk, which she did super early on. I love her sense of humor and her desire to always do the right thing. Can't wait to celebrate many more birthdays with my forever baby girl!

So it was birthday time again at our house and this year we only threw one party for Sadie. The older ones are just not that into it anymore. All they want to do is go out to dinner and maybe have one or two friends over. So first up is Alex....
Such a handsome funny kid. He loves soccer, oragami (seriously) and playing outside with all the neighbor boys. Pretty average stuff for a nine year old :)
He picked Olive Garden for his birthday lunch and he felt like a king when we ordered him his very own dessert. He didn't have to share with me or Josh but he insisted on doing it anyway. Such a generous kid.

Sadie turned five and I let her have a Luau pool party. She shared her party with one of her best friends, Kenzie.
This was the closest thing to a smile I got from her at the moment. She had her first "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to" tantrum and she's lucky she didn't get a real birthday spank to go with it from me! She was mad because I wouldn't let her swim without a life jacket. Mean me!
See that bratty little face she's making? She actually stood up at this moment and stomped into the house. We were actually singing to her and Kenz at that very moment. Poor Kenz was just looking around wondering if she should just blow out both candles! Ugh, I love that girl but I have to say I really miss her sweet toddler stage.

Anyway, I already posted T-mans birthday so I think that covers it. Happy b-days to my little darlings. Each year is better and better because of these sweet people who call me Mom :)

Kai's blessing

I am sooooo far behind on this blog and it doesn't help that Kai is getting bigger and more active so now I REALLY don't have the time to stay on top of it but I'm going to try and catch up this week when I can. Anyhoo, Kai was blessed May 2 by his dad. It was so sweet. If you had told me a year ago that I would be blessing yet another child I would have said that you better check me into the nut house because I was in no way up for doing the baby thing again! As it turns out he has been the answer to a prayer I didn't make. He was always to be mine and to be in our family and I have enjoyed him maybe more than my other babies. I just feel the need to savor him and enjoy this time because I know how quickly it will be over.

Anyway, it was a fun day filled with all the people we love most and all the food I love most :)
Such a sweet, handsome guy!
Grandma and Grandpa's Magleby and Thorne. Such lucky kids I have to have two sets of active, involved grandparents that live so close to them. I remind them of this daily!
Our fifth! We are so lucky:) Love you little Kai.
