They grow so fast!

Kyle got this bike for Christmas last year
and was not brave enough to try it
until earlier this year. But, now that he is five
he has informed us he is big enough to
ride his bike. He ran right out,
put his helmet on and took off!!
I am going to go hide my car keys!! hehehe!
Don't forget, you have until 12 midnight on
Friday to enter my 100th post giveaway below!!

Happy Birthday Kyle!

Today my little Kyle turns 5! Wow! Hard to believe this picture from his third birthday! And now he's FIVE!
We had a great party on his "pretend birthday" on Saturday!
He wanted pirates, so we had pirates! A pirate ship cake!

A bounce house!

A pinata!

And what is a pirate party without a treasure map?
Everyone had a great time! Even my little pirate!
Happy Birthday Nerdnose!
Mom and Dad love you!

Pink Saturday! 4-18-09

Good Morning Everyone! Happy Pink Saturday!
I am currently preparing for 10 to 15 four and five year olds, plus their parents,
plus all the regular family to arrive at the house for Kyle's fifth birthday party!
So if I do not make it to your blog today please forgive me!
It is going to be a pirate themed party but
I guess that's what I get for being the only girl in the house besides the dog!
Be sure and check back next Saturday! I plan on having my
100th post GIVEAWAY!
It will be good! It will have some pink! And anyone can enter!
Please see Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound for

Just a quick post! Melissa at Creating from the Heart is giving away a CUTTLEBUG!!! Along with some other goodies!!
I know I mentioned before how lucky I feel
to meet so many neat people in blogland!
While we live in the same city,
and have not had a chance to meet yet,
Lisa from Pupylov has given me a friendship award!! How sweet is that?"These blogs are exceedingly charming.
These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.
They are not interested in self-aggrandizement.
Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut,
even more friendships are propagated."
I have so many friends who read my blog
and I feel honored that you think I have
something fun to say, so I am passing this on to
anyone who wishes to add this to their blog!!
Happy Wednesday!!

Pink Saturday! 4-4-09

Since starting this blog in September I have
been amazed at the generosity of people in blog land!
I have been sent T-shirts, cards, book marks, charms and many other items!
This one took my breath away!
Debbie from the wonderful blog Mermaids of the Lake mentioned in this post that she saw something on my blog that inspired her!
I believe she found me through Pink Saturday!
Join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to maybe find your inspiration!
But back to what Miss Debbie sent me....
This card was in the package! It says
"My name is Doris; as in Doris Day,
my very favorite old time actress.
I love to watch Doris Day movies,
eat expensive chocolates, sing to my hearts content and fly!
I appreciate good coffee, fine wine, luxurious pedicures,
romance novels, a warm soft bed in the sun, and long naps."
Introducing Miss Doris Day!
Miss Debbie made her and sent her my way!! Could you just pass out??
I seriously got teary eyed when I opened this, I was so excited! My pictures do not do this sparkly card and piggy justice!
Miss Doris Day even had a recent pedicure!
I really cannot say thank you enough to Miss Debbie for this wonderful gift!
Miss Doris has a special place in my house and Miss Debbie has a special place in my heart!
Enjoy your Pink Saturday!

Fun Day!!!

Kyle had a school field trip on Tuesday!!
We had the best time!
We headed to "Marbles Kid Museum" which is a hands on "Exploris" type museum.

Lots of stuff for the kids to do and play and learn with and about!

Kyle's favorite, other than the pirate ship, was having Daddy there with us!

Jason played hooky for the morning and came with us so Kyle was so excited!

I liked this exhibit!

A whole area dedicated to healthy food choices, including the peas and carrots ball pit!!

There was also an area where the kids could "serve" you a healthy meal. We were too busy "eating" to get any other pictures! We went on Tuesday and Kyle was still talking about it tonight at bedtime!! Guess we need to head back really QUICK!!
