Five Years Old

My little girl is five years old.  I watched her wake up on the big day last week and she asked if she looked older.  Five is a big birthday.  She requested a "pretty cake," so I let the experts take care of that.  I did make cupcakes for her little preschool class. Originally, she requested Chuck E. Cheese for dinner (we haven't been since she was a baby probably), but when she found out they mostly just have pizza, she requested Lonestar.  She loves their mac & cheese.  She got a bunch of fun gifts and late in the day admitted that she didn't really feel like she was five yet.  Ben took two days off work to celebrate which made everything extra special.

Thanksgiving 2011 (fixed!)

I better post a few pictures before Christmas comes. It was a real treat to have family drive the five hours down to visit us. My brother Jim, his wife DeAnn and two cute boys, my brother Greg, and my parents. We took a few shots before they left.

Santa wasn't busy at the mall, so the kids were able to have a quick chat.  A visit with Santa is free, it's just the pictures that cost an arm and a leg.

Thanks to the tremendous help of my sister-in-law DeAnn (and my mom, Ben, & Jim) we really had a yummy, yummy meal.  I'm already craving those stuffing balls.  Amazing.
