Cousin Fun

There is just nothing quite as great as a vacation with cousins, especially when it includes a trip to Disneyland. We had a great short little to the Paulsons. Monday was spent swimming and playing with our Paulson and Jacobson cousins. Of course my sisters and I were able to sneak away for a quick lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and a little shopping. Tuesday was spent at Disneyland, one of my favorite places on earth. I just love it! Thanks for the fun everyone!

Happy Birthday Brett!

I know I am a little late, but I wanted to post Brett's birthday picture. He is our Valentine Birthday boy, so Valentine's Day at our house is split between the two occasions. I wanted to tell the top ten things I love about Brett (in no particular order!)
1. He is the best dad in the world. Three boys couldn't be any luckier.
2. He is always singing silly songs, it keeps us all happy.
3. He is a super optimist, life is good around Brett.
4. He likes to go out with me.
5. He loves to travel, luckily so do I!
6. He loves to spend time with family.
7. I love just taking to him, I am always interested in what he has to say about things.
8. He has never once yelled at me, he is so easy to get along with!
9. He always lets me choose where we eat, he realizes I care a lot more than he does.
10. He likes chick flicks, and he'll watch them with me. He might not be a crier, but I know there is sensitivity down in there!

I love you Brett, you make my life happy and good. It's amazing that a girl at nineteen could have made such a great decision. You are the best!

Moments I Love

It's moments like these that make it all worth it! Could I love anything more?


Jacob's birthday started out with a pancake breakfast with his brothers and baby sister Lola.
Chuck-E-Cheese's was the birthday party spot of choice for the fifth year in a row! We wonder when he will grow out of Chuck-E, but it hasn't happened yet. I can't tell you how much I love a birthday party where all I have to do it show up! (We missed Adam though, poor kid at home throwing up instead of being at his best buddies birthday party.)
A classic Jacob smile! I love it!

I love this kid! He truly makes my life better. He is my sensitive boy who always wants to please. I am so lucky to have him, especially as the oldest brother in the family.

Dad loves him too! It's hard not to. Happy Birthday Jacob!
