A whole hand...

Still cannot believe Bryce is five years old!!!! What happened to this baby of mine?

Oh, he is growing up at lighting McQueen speed. I know I will look back when he is 10 and be like my little boy is all grown up! We celebrated on his birthday with family & friends. He wanted a power ranger party {for those of you w/out boys- yes they are still around} Almost everyone made it and it was a blast! Thanks for all the presents and laughs! =)

Ben~ the cutest power ranger ev-ah!..

Check out my daughter~ We had tied balloons to weighted giftbags around the house ...and at the end of the party she grabbed ahold of two bags. She dragged the weighted bag behind her with the balloons surrounding her all around the house with her. They kinda got wrapped around her some, but she kept right on playing and walking around like balloons were the new accessory! We were cracking up!

love you Bryce!

Snow babes!

Hooray we had snow in Georgia! We had a little during the week, but during the evening and we didn't get to play...But this Saturday it snowed most of the day and we got to outside!!! The four of us had a ball in the snow. Avery wasn't too thrilled at first, but she was entertained by our little snowmen making and running around. After our romp, where wasn't much snow left on the grass..oh well. When our fingers and noses got cold we went inside to our fire. Bryce wanted hot chocolate, which is more like lukewarm chocolate for him-blah! Loving not having to do anything all day- just gaze at the snowflakes, watch movies and eat yo-yo chocolate chip cookies from the bakery @ Publix!

Pound puppy

My husband & I saw an old cartoon of the Pound Puppies the other day...remember them? They are back in the stores {or have been back} I was more fond of Rainbow Brite & Hello Kitty. Oh we got Bryce a Snoopy Sno Cone machine for Christmas...why have we been waiting to use it?? hmm

My very own floppy-eared puppy will be 10 years old this summer! Here is my sweet Dinah...

Candy spree!

Oh my! I just watched the Eye Candy episode of Project Runway and I would love to go on a candy shopping spree in a Hershey's store. I would be in heaven with the all the Reese's candy! mmmmmmmmmmmmm!
My friend in middle school, Phoebe, had lived in Hershey, PA and I was always thinking she was so lucky to grow up there surrounded by chocolate. Speaking of middle school, my friend Tiffany & I went out Saturday {hooray} and we were talking about how in less than two more years we will have been friends for 20 years!!! crazy! I can't wait to see There will be Blood...when will it open here? if you have seen it already I'm jealous. Well soon I shall get mine.

New 2008

Happy New Year!

This year flew by...I say that every year..but it keeps getter faster and it needs to slow down a little. So much has happened this past year. Bryce started school & Avery turned one. My goddaughters were born!
I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life- all my family and friends. My husband is the best and I don't know what I'd do with out him. I love you so! & my two babies {always} Even with the crazed-out moments when I want to pull my hair out it's been the best year ev-ah! Thank you also to my friends at work..your generosity and sheer kindness has made all the difference.

What will happen this year I wonder? I hope I get to spend more time with all my family. More GNO too! Big changes for me with work...so anxious about moving to a new school, but Bryce will start kindergarten there =) ...new things that Avery will learn. Everyday she amazes me with her new talents...my two cousins new little ones will be born...friends' new babies{twins!}....New house?

well, how did we celebrate New Years Eve? We just went to our annual dinner at our Chinese restaurant..they fill the place with balloons..and then we went for dessert (can you guess) ice cream!!! Paul & I put the kids to bed and rang in the new year by ourselves. =)

Check out her gaze...

I hope this is the bestest year ever for all!
