Happy Birthday Sky!

Super Sky!
My favorite!
Just being cute!

So this little nubie of mine is now FIVE YEARS OLD!  How did that happen?  This week was a fun one.  On Wednesday the 15th I went to her school where she was spotlighted!  I loved her answers to the questions they asked her.  One of them was, "What makes you special?"  Her answer was, "Cause I can do eye tricks like my daddy."  If you haven't seen her eye trick be sure to ask her.  It's quite amazing and truly a special gift (ha!).  That night we went to Spaghetti Mamas for dinner to celebrate.  She heard me say earlier in the day that that's where we'd go for dinner (cause she LOVES mac and cheese) and then later said to me, "Are we going to Skinny Mama's now?"  So cute!  Grandma, Aunt Megan and cousin Mallory came and ate with us.  It was yummy and Sky scarffed her mac and cheese!  Then we came back to the house and had a pan of brownies that I had taken white chocolate chips and made a #5 on the top.  Mallory stayed the night and the two of them played pretend all day Thursday!  They both have the greatest imaginations!  Then Saturday was her big day, her first ever birthday party with little friends.  We had a princess party!  I made tu-tu's and bought the cutest little butterfly wands for each of the girls.  We ate pizza, opened presents, played princess games and had a pink cupcake.  It was a great little party.  On Sunday Suzanne (my photography buddy) called me and asked me to meet her at this new great location.  I was still in my PJ's recovering from a busy week, but I threw on some clothes, grabbed Sky and met her there.  Here are a few of the pictures from Sunday night.  They turned out pretty cute.  I love this kid!!!!

Best Buddies!

These two really do love each other!  They are such little buddies.  I hope when Brookey is a little older they'll be nice enough to include her in their "playing house club."  They are always playing "house" or "store" at least when they're not playing in the powder :).  

Pony Rides $3

Last week I decided we were done with computer class.  Jett was losing interest and wanted to be done.  So since he won't go to kindergarten for almost 3 more years (and he can already sound out small words and other crazy things) I decided it was no big deal.  I was getting tired of having to run out the door after lunch every MWF anyway.  I told them we'd do other things instead during that time like go to the park, go to the Children's Museum and things like that.  Well, today we went on a pony ride at Gardner Village.  It was a perfect day!  The kids had a great time and we finished it off with suckers at the candy store.

Powder Puff kids!

Their faces are priceless!

I have been dying to post this!!!! 
It's not often that I spend much time on the phone (I have three small kids and it just doesn't ever go well when I'm on the phone) but today it just so happened that one person after another called me.  I spoke to my friend Patrice and while speaking to her my mom called so as soon as I got off the phone with her, I called my mom.  While talking to my mom, Neils called me so when I got off the phone with my mom, I called Neils back and spoke to him.  It was about an hour or so that I was on the phone.  All the while I was rocking Brooke in my arms in my rocking chair upstairs in my room.  So since Brooke was being good in my arms and I could hear the other two playing nicely in their room, I didn't feel the need to get off the phone.  Well this is what their "playing nicely" was.  Now I know why I heard giggling and laughing... can you say POWDER PUFF kids!  They emptied an entire LARGE container of POWDER all over themselves and Jetts room.  The floor had an inch thick of powder in some parts, their hair (can you even see their hair) was covered in powder and it smelled so nice.  I couldn't help but laugh.  I called Neils and said, "Now do I laugh and take pictures right now or kill them?"  He left work a few minutes early and rushed home to see it.  Needless to say WE LAUGHED!!!  And took a few pictures.
