Claire told Santa she wants "a toy".
I think he'll come through on that.
Poor Syd was scared to death. Luckily she could put her head on her sisters shoulder. Man I love
the relationship the twins have.

Don't Judge Me!

I gave in and watched the Oprah special.
What else can I say?
I think I have a problem.

Happy Birthday Bella!

Dear Bella,
Where did the last 6 years go? I seriously can't believe you are getting so old.
First off I have to say how proud I am of you!
Every year at this time I'm reminded of how blessed I am and how far we've come together.
You are growing up to be such an amazing little person.
When thinking of you a few words come to mind:
Obedient, Thoughtful, Funny, Creative, Kind, Smart, Beautiful!
It's hard to put into words how much I truly love you and how grateful I am to be your mom!!
I hope this next year brings as much fun as this last one.

Bella's Birthday Weekend

I have a 6 year old!!!!
The night before Bella said to me "mom, is tomorrow the day when you decorate my door and we eat cupcakes and open presents?". Ahh...I was so happy she likes all the little traditions I've tried to establish.
Her birthday weekend was filled with lots of fun things. Breakfast and presents in bed, 2 different dinners with 2 different sets of grandparents, pottery painting with a friend, and a birthday party for her cousin who shares the same birthday.
(pictures to come of the amazing cake)
My favorite part of the day was when she said,

"MoM, I CaN't BeLiEvE i'M 6 YeArS oLd!. i StILl fEeL LiKe A 5 YeAr oLd".
Birthday morning with all her presents
dinner with grandma & grandpa
