Baby girl is 6!

Our baby girl turned six this week (on her golden birthday). I think it may be time for us to stop calling her "Baby." :) Every year I am amazed at how quickly it has gone by... I can't really be a mother of a six year old, can I? I am so glad that I've had another year at home full-time to spend with her before she starts full-time school next year.

As I was thinking about her last year, I thought of a few milestones that she reached... which reminded me of how much she's grown in the past year and how much I need to absorb each and every day that we have together!

* Took her first airplane trip (that she can recall)
* First experienced the ocean
* Took two sets of swimming lessons (can swim some on her own)
* Graduated pre-school
* Started kindergarten
* Proudly conquered her stage freight fear in her Christmas program
* Lost her 3rd and 4th teeth
* Hit the big 4' in height (not too far behind her momma)

I had such a hard time picking out a few pictures of her, that I limited myself to her first year, I'll have to follow-up with a the rest. I just LOVE those chunky legs! She liked to eat then and she LOVES to eat now :)

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
