Happy Anniversary

Here we are 4 years later. I can't believe it's only been 4 years. Seth and I are both guilty of saying "it feels like a lot longer". I guess when you have 4 kids, one who's almost 6 and twins, it does feel like longer.
And I wouldn't change a thing. I consider myself very lucky. I was able to see firsthand what kind of a dad Seth was when we were dating. Of course I don't recommend this for everyone. But in our case it worked out great. I was able to see Seth play, take care of, and love my little 7 month old (yes, that's how old she was when we first started dating). And that was hands down the biggest reason I fell in love with him.
I'm feeling a little emotional today. Because not only is it our anniversary but the class lists were posted at the elementary. I now know that Bella has Mrs Savage in the afternoon. Not that I know anything about this teacher. But it does make it very real.

My little girl is going to kindergarten!!

Didn't we just get married with a 20 month old?
Man, time flies.
Love you Sethy!!!

Blogging loser

The other night Seth said said to me "why haven't you updated your blog lately".
What? Did my husband really say that?
This is huge since he usually only takes time to mock my blog. If you don't believe me check any comments made by "chuck".
Well turns out he was right. It's now the middle of July and I've only made one post! I try not to be one to make excuses for things. But that said it has just been one crazy busy summer and I haven't had much time. Lame I know. Actually the truth is I have blogged a lot for my journal but I haven't posted anything. Even more lame, I know.
But just know I've still been reading everyone else's and I will be better I promise.

I Have A Problem

My treat of choice is always hands down without a question a chocolate chip cookie. I'm so obbessed that I can name off the top of my head about 5 people who make the best ones and I've been known to drive more than 20 minutes just to get one.

The second treat I love is a cupcake. Especially the ones from So Cupcake!!

And last but not least I love a good

What a 4th!

The weekend came and went so fast. I guess that's what happens when you do a lot.
I was being lame and wanted to stay home and be low key, but Seth talked me into seeing fireworks at Eaglewood with my family and some friends. Turned out to be lots of fun. (Of course we payed the price the next day with grumpy kids. But it was worth it).
Then on the 4th we went across the street and watched our favorite neighbor put on an amazing fireworks show. He does this every year and it never disappoints. His wife buys lots and I mean LOTS of glow sticks for all the kids. This year she added star wands, rings and ear rings to the mix of glow stuff. At one point all the kids were more interested in the glow sticks than watching the awesome fireworks. I wish I'd taken a picture of that.
Then after the fireworks Seth and Bella slept in the tent in the backyard. This has become a tradition and Bella really looks forward to it. Claire kept calling the tent the "castle". Maybe next year she'll get to sleep out there with them.
Seth said right after this picture Bella put her head down and was out.
