An Absurd Number of Photos

Playing Peek-A-Boo with her brothers
The Cutiest Cutie Pie in the Whole Wide World as the boys call her
On Joel's Birthday we all wore orange in honor of him.  He wanted to go to McDonald's for dinner, so we did.  :)
Me and the crazy 5 year old
Colleen and Anna
With his orange flavored birthday cupcake
Bryan, the cake-decorating master, at work.  Notice Catching Fire on the counter -- I was reading it out loud to him when I wasn't taking pictures or decorating for Joel's party
The finished product -- A Mario Cart birthday cake with Baby Peach, Joel's Wii-Me, and Donkey Kong
Joel's little friends
Joel and his cake
Anna LOVES her brothers, and the feeling is very, very mutual.  They giggled and giggled looking at each other through the window.        

She's irresistible.  And she LOVES to eat.  She shovels it in, two-fisted.  I've never seen a child eat as fast or as much as she does.
Joel's pre-K class had a special Mother's Day picnic and program.  I love this kid!!
Ok, she's beyond adorable.  I cover her cheeks with kisses all day long.  I simply can't help myself.

At Joel's preschool carnival
Bryan framed these pictures for me for Mother's Day.  I love them!  They're from our dear friend Marissa's wedding last December.  Caleb and Joel were bouquet bearers, and our sweet friend Becca (Caden's mom) was one of the photographers.  She kindly passed these pics along.  Isn't Caleb handsome?!?
Dashing Joel
Breakdancing Caleb.  Part of what I love about this one is how it's so out of character for Caleb.  He's not a center-of-attention kind of kid at all, but this night he just wanted to DANCE!  It's currently framed on our mantle.  Makes me smile every time I see it.
