Audrey's Fifth Birthday

We make a big deal about birthdays.  I love to celebrate birthdays.  It is the one day that is truly yours.  On Audrey's actual birthday - September 28th - we had her favorite dinner, Hawiian Haystack.  Grandma Beadle was here to celebrate too.  Audrey went to school, I picked her up early, we went to lunch with Daddy, I took her all the way to the zoo just so she could buy two stuffed tigers from the gift shop, Nathan went to tennis, Ryan came home early, we had dinner and cupcakes.  It was a great day.  But the celebration wasn't over...the birthday party was the next weekend.

What's With Two?

Elysse is living up to all the wonders of age two. In one weeks time she cut a chunk of her hair, dropped eight eggs (one at a time) on the floor from the counter and flooded the kitchen and part of the dining room!
