Happy Birthday to Me!

It's My Birthday and I'll cry if I want to... cry if I want to... You would cry too if...

Ok, so I didn't cry, it was a great Birthday!

On Wednesday, I had a "Pride & Prejudice Party" and had some friends come over to watch the good Pride and Prejudice movie with me (The 6 hour one with Colin Firth). It was a lot of fun! Created a lot of work since we ended up having 12 or so kids here all 5 and under but I wouldn't change it! It was so much fun, good friends, good food, good conversation!

Then on Thursday for my birthday I had Dennis get me a chocolate chip cake from Taco Bell/KFC. I know but they are soooo yummy! He decided to add gummy worms to the top to make it extra pretty, lol! I've gotta admit by the time we get to my birthday, lol, we are all birthdayed out, so it was pretty low key. But I do have to wonder if Dennis is ever going to remember how old I am :) He got it wrong again this year, that's ok though, I don't mind being younger :)

Happy Birthday Charity!

Happy Birthday Charity! You're 5 years old! And I know how excited you are to start Kindergarten this fall! Where has the time gone? It seems just yesterday that you were a baby yourself and now you've gotten so big and have 2 younger sisters. You've become such a big girl, it seems over night! The things you do amaze us all the time! This year has been a wonderful year filled with learning and laughter. There were some tears shed along the way.

Today was her last day of school and since it was her birthday, her birthday party at school as well. She was so excited! It was so cute! And her teacher, Miss Tara, told me what a pleasure it's been having Charity in class. She's such a sweet girl and been so good for her. So, for their birthday party, you bring in a poster about them and treats to share with the class. Charity's poster turned out so cute! I put my favorite baby picture of her, as well as a relatively recent big one, and then a bunch from the last year and a couple from other times. And then we wrote some of her "favorites" in purple, of course. :) It was fun.

Happy Birthday Danielle!

Happy 3rd Birthday to my Little Firecracker Danielle! We Love You! It's amazing how much you have grown and changed in the last 3 years. While you're still a bit tiny for a 3-year old, (but you soooo make up for it!) you've grown and changed so much! You are such a good sister. You love to share with Charity and you love to take care of your baby sister, Rebecca. Your father and I are so proud of the girl you are growing up to be and we know you'll grow up to be an amazing, accomplished woman!

You just LOVE to sing! Your singing leader in nursery is constantly telling us how much she enjoys your enthusiasm and your love of music. You are always right up there ready to sing your heart out! And you love to sing at home as well. I think one of your favorite songs is Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree but I know that you love so many others as well. And you are so good at saying your prayers! Sometimes it seems a little too good because you're already done praying for dinner before anyone else has even gotten ready to pray!

A Picture of a Letter

Dennis wrote me this letter when we were dating. I loved it then, I love it now! And I'm keeping it forever! :)

Charity and the Monsters

So, this morning when Danielle didn't want to eat breakfast, Charity told her if she didn't eat then the monsters would eat her all gone.

I told her, "Don't tell Danielle that monsters are going to eat her, that's not nice. Would you like for Danielle to tell you that monsters are going to eat you?"

To which she told Danielle, "Don't worry Danielle, I'll protect you from the monsters."

I guess that at least is better... lol!

The Busy Month of May

So, here's a rough showing of what our month of May is going to look like... May is so busy around here!

1st - Birthday party for niece
3rd - Charity's Preschool Pictures
5th - Relief Society Activity
7th - Day Trip to Logan to celebrate my Dad's birthday, Mother's Day, and possibly Danielle's birthday
8th - Mother's Day
12th - Danielle's Birthday!
13th - Charity's Preschool Field Trip to Hogle Zoo

18th - Charity's Birthday! Charity's Last day of school
20th - Charity's Preschool Graduation
26th - My Birthday!
30th - Memorial Day

And we have yet to figure out/decide what we are going to be doing about celebrating birthdays when and where! And I very possibly could be missing a few things that we have to do this month that I'm not thinking of! Such a busy month for us!!! I have a feeling that May is going to be a busy month for a long long time... :)

A Picture of Your Biggest Insecurity

I'm not sure I can think of a picture for this one. One of my biggest insecurities is afraid others think badly of me. I don't know if it stems from being teased as a kid or what. But I'm always afraid of showing weakness or vulnerability and that others might have a reason to look down on me. So, what picture works for that? lol. This was really hard for me to admit! But I have realized as I've gotten older that I'm not the only one, I think a lot of people feel this way and I believe that knowledge is what's helped me to open up some and not be as shy as I used to be!
