2009 Christmas Card

We did better this year...we did send out some Christmas cards but to those who we didn't get to lick a stamp for we are truly sorry. I hope this makes up for it! You won't be able to tape it to your fridge, save it in a box until next year or cut it up to make a gift tag...but you can come back to the blog anytime you want to take a look our 2009 Christmas Card! Dan and I feel very blessed to be parents to these three beautiful children (if I do say so myself).

Here are the winning "kid quotes" of the year!

Dani asked for a cheese sandwich right after dinner and daddy asked "where are you putting all the food?" She replied, "It's going straight to my thighs!"

After getting out of the Hot Tub, Brock while shivering states, "I'm freezing like a pig!"

Brock jumps into the bed right on top of mommy..."Oh sorry mommy, did I scare the crap right out of you!"

Mia, while playing on her rocking horse, is asked what is your horsey's name? she replies "donkey!"

We wish you a Merry Christmas and nothing but the best for the new year!

Brock Turns 5!

Here it is the middle of December...I better get with it! My boy turned 5 over a month ago and I'm just now getting around to blog about it. OK here is the the play by play. First you must know Dan and I were taking some pictures for a work project and accidentally reformatted the memory card in our camera with Brock's birthday photos on it. I was SOOOO sad! What is a mother to do when she has no photos of that special day. Well I'm going to document it here! We started the day with taking treats to his preschool class. We bagged up some candy, a pencil and stickers for each kid. Brock handed them out along with a capri sun to drink. After school it was home to hear "When do we leave for my pirate party mom?" 150,000 times! We took Brock, Christian, Janice, Rees, Abby, Dani, Mia, Aunt Ashlee, Aunt Jenny, Uncle Seth, Uncle Steve, Melissa, Elle, Cassie and Jordan to Pirate Island Pizza. (so sad that the Barkers were home sick with the flu and couldn't make it.) We reserved the special underwater mermaid room. We ate Pizza and played games and more games. Each kid was given a pirate hat and eye patch along with a loot bag filled with candy. After the pizza and games, we opened gifts and ate chocolate cupcakes that I had made. (I made a version of the photo above.) I asked Brock what he liked the most about his special day and he said "all the tickets I got for the games! and the cake!" My baby boy is growing up too fast! He is so lovable and still loves to snuggle with his mommy...I hope that lasts forever. Hope you had a great Birthday Brocky! We love you!
