the day they turned five

what a difference five years make.
today was an interesting day.
because i knew daddy couldn't be with us, i hesitated to make a big deal of your birthday today.
but it's just hard not to celebrate two of the most amazing blessings a mama could ever ask for.
i hope you each felt special and celebrated all day long. 
and as soon as daddy gets home from malawi, we'll celebrate again!

love you so much,

so long, farewell

A bittersweet day it has been. Dora (the explorer) has been traded in for a new girl.
As I scraped and scrubbed the remnants of who knows what off her floors,
I couldn't help but think about how much our family has relied on her over the past years to get us from one place to another.
Our babies have become kids during our time with her.

Sure, I'm beyond excited about our new car and the fact that when I put this new car in reverse,
my kids will no longer think that I am popping a wheelie, but it still makes me a little sad.

Here's to good memories, new beginnings and a water only rule that will be strictly enforced. :)
