We cannot believe it!! We have a 5 year old!!! How crazy is that?? Eric turned 5 yesterday! He keeps saying that he's not 5 because he isn't bigger. I really think he thought he was going to be all grown up when he turned 5!! He is so funny. We started the day by having his birthday breakfast request...french toast. (Andrea, I've been so hungry for that since church on Sunday! Smelled so yummy!) Then we just kinda hung out at home. Had his birthday lunch request...Mac and Cheese and baked beans! Then we got ready and went to buy balloons. He HAD to have balloons! He really wanted to have a party with friends and family but didn't tell me that until the day of so...maybe next year! He wanted to go to the playground and play and then out to eat so that's how we celebrated. We came back and had cake and opened presents. I think we all had fun and he was so excited with his Lincoln Logs he got and water balloons! He also loves his Frisbee but that needs to be a park thing I think! I had to run all the way down the block to retrieve it today. He threw it and then it rolled and rolled and rolled and kept on rolling down the street! WHEW! Gave mommy a good workout!

Lovin it up for the camera!
Such a fun playground. I didn't know about this one!
Taco Johns. Yes, Ryleigh is eating the napkin!
Ryleigh was so fascinated with the table edge!
So excited to get his Lincoln Logs!
Happy Birthday to the BEST 5 year old in the world!!
We, Andy and Anna, started something amazing when we fell in love!
I fell in love with Andy when we were 15-16 years old but I wasn't exactly his type. I was the nerd and he was the fun cool guy. After his mission our paths met once again and either I got cuter or his mission REALLY softened his heart!! :) We were married a year later.
Then came Eric. He is almost 5 and is all boy! He loves life and is always laughing and trying to make everyone else laugh. Our little jokester!
2 years later...Along came Alexandra! She is almost 3 and is the sweetest little girl! She is our little princess and she knows it! She has a perfect combination of tomboy and girly girl in her! She is PERFECT!!
Again 2 years later...We welcomed Ryleigh into our family in September 2008. She is 6 months old and is absolutely wonderful! She is a very sweet, easy going and happy baby. She is ADORED by all of us!!
Two years from now?? There may or may not be another addition to our family but we will be stronger than ever and working together to make it in this world...together as an eternal TEAM!
We are so blessed and are loving life!
