1 and 5 Year Pictures....

We took the clan to get their pictures last Thursday, something I dread might I add. It was once again a stressful situation. We did manage to get a few decent shots but I'll be honest, I was hoping for a better session. I guess I should realize that trying to get 5 children, together or apart, is no easy task. I think I will be switching to a home photographer next year.

Colin, Addie, Cooper, Ethan and Sam

Not to bad in the end I guess, hopefully the 2 year shots will be better. Hope you all have a great week, I'll be back soon!!

At 2:00 pm today, my little Colin will be 5. I still can't believe it's been 5 years, where does the time go? He has been through a lot over the past 2 years, to him it's normal, he knows no different. I know it's been a hard adjustment for him, quickly becoming a family of 7, for the most part he has done quite well. We love him more than I can express in this blog, I would not trade a single moment with our loud, crazy, EXTREMELY energetic, and devilishly handsome little boy. He is a pistol!!!!!!
We celebrated his birthday yesterday at Monkey Joe's. He had such a fun time bouncing and sliding with his best buds. It was great to see him having so much fun. The babies also got to play and it was HILARIOUS!! For those of you who know how germaphobic I am, yes there was a whole lot of sanitizing going on. I promise to post more pics soon, but for now here is just a few of the birthday boy.

Showered With Love :)

As I have previously announced, my sister is getting married. We could not be happier for her and Ryan and the wedding is fast approaching. With less than 8 weeks left of preparations, what better way to prepare than with a shower. A couple of weeks ago, together with the bridesmaids, my aunt Mar and my Mother, we had an AWESOME shower. The gifts she opened were incredible. She got so many amazing things from so many amazing women. The entire shower was done in her wedding colors. From the tableware, center pieces and the balloons, to the cake and the favors, even the little prizes were wrapped up in purple and green. I know, purple and green may sound a little bright, but it is actually a deep purple with accents of green and apricot. It is really pretty. I am so excited for the wedding but of course the bachelorette party must come first. Stay tuned for that post to follow soon. Enjoy the pictures!!!! (there is a bunch)
