Too Funny To Be Offended

This morning, I was in the middle of my daily ritual. I was taking a shower, and as usual, Kate came in the bathroom to talk to me.

I always take the clothes I am going to wear for the day into the bathroom with me so I don't have to scare anyone while I run around deciding what to wear. Today was no exception.

Kate walks in, apparently gets bored with our conversation, and looks for something more interesting to do. She sees my bra sitting on the counter with the rest of my clothes. She proceeds to "try it on." She got it on, except doing up the back.

She looks at me and says, "Look, mom! It fits, just like you!"

Great. I have boobs the size of a 2-year-old.

Time to consult a surgeon, I think.

Catching Up..Again

I cannot seem to be able to find the time to blog consistently. I can't seem to be able to put the brakes on life for ten minutes.

We have been so busy! The kids have been sick with the stomach flu for the past two weeks. One gets over it, and another comes down with it. What a joke! But we will skip over the past two weeks because 1) I would really like to forget the past two weeks; and 2) I'm sure no one wants to hear the details of the past two weeks.:)

So fast forward to this past weekend. My first baby turned 9! How in the world did time pass so quickly?! She had a late night with her two cousins, her sister, and four friends on Friday night. What a fun bunch of girls!

There was pizza, a movie, popcorn, dancing, singing, balloon fights, and...

A humongous pillow fight. They had a blast!

Saturday was Rylee's birthday, so she couldn't wait to open her gifts as soon as she woke up.

She got some clothes, and a sewing machine.

I think her favorite gift was her roller blades though. She didn't want to take them off all day (and hasn't taken them off much since.) You gotta love the fashion statement she is making with the dress and the socks and roller-blades though. I think it's adorable.:)

She also loved her new birthday dress. She loves to get a new dress for her birthday. What a girly-girl!

Rylee wanted this cake for her birthday so bad. It was SO yummy!

She couldn't wait to dig in!!!

She loves it when family comes over for cake and ice cream! We have an awesome family!

Blow out those candles, Birthday Girl!!!

Daddy, trying to decide how to cut the cake.

He decided he didn't want to cut the cake, and turned the honors over to Tai. She is giggling trying to figure out how to cut it without causing an M&M avalanche.

These two girls love their daddy so much!

I couldn't resist taking this picture of Isaak. What a cutie pie!

While everyone else was enjoying their cake and ice cream, Kate was enjoying and apple. What the heck? I have no idea where she came from. Who picks apples over cake (with candy all over it, nonetheless) and ice cream? She will be the only healthy one in our family.:)

We snapped a picture of the three girls with my parents as the night was ending. They are the best grandparents, and we are all so lucky to have them so close by. My kids adore them. Hayden would have been right there with them, but still wasn't feeling top-notch after being sick all week. Poor dude.

It was such a nice weekend, and Rylee said her birthday was fabulous. We sure love her and she is turning in to such an amazing young lady. I can't believe it has been nine years since she was born. I don't know what I ever did to deserve such a sweet girl, but we are all so blessed to have her in our family. Her sense of humor is fantastic. She is kind and sensitive to those around her. She is artistic and loves to share her talents. Our family is so much richer with her in it, and we love her so much!

Happy Birthday, Sweetie! We love you!
