Derek's 6th Birthday

We had a combined party with Peyton the week before Halloween. We rented the same slide from two years prior. It was so much fun (again). At one point the men were grabbing kids and throwing them down the slide and they would just bounce off the bottom like rag dolls. And then later we got the hose out and turned it into a water slide. We had the slide for a total of 9 hours so it was a blast! Usually if you go to a local event you pay and wait in line forever just to slide down once. This way we could go as many times as we wanted. He got a bike and drum set this year. And his cake was and Pinata were minions. Peyton had little mermaid stuff but the common color was blue so it all blended really well. I love him and hate that he is growing up. He is so happy ALL THE TIME. I wish I could bottle up his positive way of looking at life. He really is such a joy and so sweet we love that he came into our family.

Sisterly Love

Saw these notes that the girls shared back and forth. Addie inviting Olivia for a sleep over (they share the same room so it cracks me up that there was a need for a formal invitation), and then Olivia responds with some self esteem boosters for Addie. I thought they would love to read this and get a good chuckle out of it one day when they are all grown up. I love my sisters. They are my best friends. Even though Addie and Olivia fight all the time I have proof that there is some love there.

Stomach Bug

They say a picture is worth a thousand words yada yada yada.... Any ways I found drawings Addie made of her recent bout with the stomach bug. She had to stay home from school and just lay down on the couch getting up to throw up when she felt the need. Its adorable cause she drew it up like a comic strip. You can basically tell what's going on from the drawings (at least I could anyways).
