Happy Birthday Catelyn!

Finally, I get a birthday on the day it happens (besides Emma.. lol). I can't believe that a year has flown by already and my little baby girl, Catelyn, is 1 year old! That means I've been doing this blog for over a year. If you may remember, when I started, she was and it, still in my belly. And I really thought SHE, was a HE. Boy, was I surprised! But I absolutely love my baby girl all the same. So here it is, one year after my last little baby was born.

Here she is, my biggest baby, weighing in at 8lbs 12oz. Do you know how happy I am she was a c-section!!! lol
Catey at 3 months old, still the chubby, but adorable girl!
Rolling around at 6 months. She's a lazy girl and could care less if or when she gets around. She's got 2 sisters, a brother, and parents to do everything for her!
Getting ready to party for Emma's birthday at 9 months. She looks so big. And look at those curls!
Catey this morning, on her birthday! My little 1 year old girl! Please don't mind the chocolate milk stains on her shirt. That's from her newly discovered talent... spitting her drink out after she takes a mouthful... oy

Happy Birthday to My Baby Girl, Catelyn!!!

Happy Belated Birthday to Jacob!

Only 2 1/2 weeks late, but finally I'm getting this one up! Coming here shortly is Catelyn's too, because today is her b-day. lol But anyway, here's my sweet little boy through his 2 years of life!

My sweet little baby boy, the day he was born. Weighing in at 6lbs 6oz. A small start, but he grew so quickly!
He learned quickly that he wanted to get down and chase his sisters!
And torture them too! I think here he abused his 1st birthday power to beat up on Abby.
He LOVES playing outside!!!
Jake on his 2nd birthday, getting his favorite, Elmo! He's getting to be such a big little man!

Happy Birthday to My Big Boy, Jacob!!!

Happy Belated Birthday Abigale!

Unfortunately, my computer was in the shop when my oldest baby turned 5 years old! You may have caught on the banner the change, and you've seen the birthday pics. I'd like to go back through the past and share some pics of my Abigale as she grew through the years! I'll try not to bombard you, but we're talking 5 years to go through here! Not too bad... not quite 2 weeks late.

Baby Abigale Ann. Born December 9th, 2004, weighing in at a measly 5lbs 4oz. Tiny, but filled our hearts with love!
And then she grew and grew. Abby at about 6 months.
Abby's 1st Birthday Party. I think she liked the cake!
Then she got bigger and started looking more like a little lady! Getting ready to go out and party here!
Abigale's 2nd Birthday. She grows so fast!
2 1/2 here. She's always been the light of our life!
Abby celebrating her 3rd Birthday at Olive Garden! What a good choice!
Abby always loves spending time with her Aunt Keli!
Abby's 4th Birthday! Exactly 3 weeks before she became a big sister for the 3rd time!
After she got her hair chopped off for Locks of Love. Our girl has such a big heart!
Abby around her 5th birthday! She's all primped and ready to go to her Christmas Concert!
Happy Birthday to My Big Girl Abigale!!!

(Be on the lookout for a Jacob Birthday post very soon!)

Project 365 - Day 190 to 200

On December 9th, 2009, I became a mom of 4, ages 5 and under! My oldest girl turned 5. Poor thing had a bit of a cold on her birthday, but it didn't stop her from having a good one all the same!

Here she is right after school, with her birthday crown. She got to hand out treats and have a party at school!
Poor sick girl was so tuckered out, her and her sister took a nap together on the couch.
Present time! She did get excited for that.
"What's this!"
She was so happy to get her Easy Bake Oven. She's been wanting a "Maker" for ever!
Jake and Catey got too impatient for daddy to open the box, so Jake took matters into his own hands (NOTE: that's a toy play knife that comes with the fake food sets you can cut in half the items.)
Licking the bowl while her first cake bakes!
Impatient hooligans can't wait for cake!
Frosting her cake.
Look, Abby made her own birthday cake! Lets sing "Happy Birthday!"
My big girl is 5! Look at that beautiful cake she made!

Project 365 - Day 184 to 189

Here are a few pics of the kids opening birthday presents (and a just because present for Em) from their Great Great Aunt and Uncle. The love their gifts! And please don't mind the kitchen mess. The kids couldn't wait to open their presents.

Everyone saying cheese real quick before opening their gifts!
Tearing into them. Catey's says "Hey, what about me!"
Breaking into the good stuff!
Checking it all out!
Jake likes his jammies!
Catey checking out her present!

Up next, Abby's birthday!

Project 365 - Day 175 to 183

As promised, here are the St. Nicholas Day pictures. I didn't get them up yesterday because I spent all day on my sugar cookies, and boy are they good! Got 2 more kinds to make today and then I should be done. Gonna hate to see the scale come January!

Just got up, patiently waiting for mom to take their pic so they can dig in!
Oooh, straw cups!
I think Abby was excited about this one and Jake thought that was funny!
Catey finally got her lazy butt out of bed to get her stocking.
A bug for a bug.
"What is this thing?!"
"Hmmmm, I'm going to get into this somehow! Wait, is that food!!!"
"It is!!!!!"
This look on her face just cracks me up! She finally got the goods!

Project 365 - Day 162 to 174

As promised, here's the first batch of make up pictures. I'm not really sure how many days behind I am, but whatever number I end up at when I'm done going through my latest pics will be the new count. This is the first 13 or so, going from Thanksgiving to before St. Nicholas Day. I'll do a separate St. Nick Day post next. These are mostly random pics!

Thanksgiving Day, Abby and Emma put on a little show before our dinner. Jake wanted to get in on the action too!
Emma, finally let him wear her hat so he could sing too!
Catey and her Great Grandma on Thanksgiving!
The girls waiting for the Christmas parade to start.
Here is comes!!! They were getting so excited when they saw the lights.
Watching the parade go by.
Daddy made it out of milking early enough to come watch the parade too! YAY!
I have weird kids! That's all I can say!
These two got some kind of trouble brewing.
I could not believe that these 3 were getting along and sharing a blanket together!
Jake and Abby. These two look so much alike!
The artist and her beautiful work of art! See below for a further explanation of her masterpiece.
Here's the lovely drawing Abby drew. On the left hand side is the toilet, the middle is Catelyn, and the right side is me. This is a picture of Catelyn sticking her hands in the toilet, then me trying to get her out of it, but can't because she's sticking her butt in my face! Such imagination! lol
