My big D turned 8 years old yesterday, officially kicking me into a reality check of how fast my kids are growing. In just a few days, baby girl will be 3 and that breaks my heart just a wee little bit.
I had to cover my mouth yesterday when in the middle of picking up the living room (which D did NOT want to do) he mutters angrily, "This does NOT feel like a happy birthday!!" But he perked up when we took the whole fam to DQ for dinner and he had his favorite Banana Split Blizzard. He must take after his Grandma L!
Speaking of Grandma, we are currently loving these DVDs she sent for Aaron's bday:
Sarah Palin's Alaska Season One on TLC
It's the next best thing to going to Alaska yourself and hanging out with Sarah. The kids love it, too, and we've decided we have to start saving for a big Alaska family trip sometime. (Maybe by the time the kids are all in college?!?)
Today I filled out an NCAA bracket for the first time. It was a little overwhelming, so I called my little brother, who gave me a couple hints. The easiest part was picking the winner....hmmmm and who would that be you ask?
The greatest buckeye fans on earth!
