Counting Down...

OK Cindy, if you read this, I'm sorry! We were looking at the calender the other day and realized that we only have 45 days left until Ben is home! I am excited and anxious. This whole thing started so long ago and is finally coming to an end. I can't wait for him to be home!

I haven't written for awhile because nothing really "blog worthy" has been going on. The kids are insanely busy. This week alone we have 4 birthday parties. Plus preschool is wrapping up soon. So there is a lot going on with that.

Ethan is so excited for his birthday party on Sat. We headed to Party City today for napkins, plates, goody bags and some Batman masks. Very cute. Ethan now refers to himself as Batman. Of course Connor is his trusty sidekick Robin. They give me a lot of laughs playing Batman and Robin.

It's hard to believe that Ethan is turning 5 and will start kindergarten next year. He doesn't seem old enough! You hear it over and over about how kids grow so fast and it really is true. He grew up way to fast.

Harmony finally lost her tooth. It was driving me crazy. She would keep messing with it so that it would be crooked in her mouth. We finallypulled it out. However, when the tooth fairy checked her wallet what was there? A $5 bill...that is all. So I asked my neighbor to listen over the monitor for the kids and ran to Target. I said, " don't worry I will be back really soon. There is nothing that I need. I am just going to get change" What do I come back with? Three bags. Target is a good place for someone whoe doesn't need anything!
