Rob looks a little squinty here, don't you think? The sun was burning his retinas; it ain't no thang. I just loved how cute those boys looked in this pic.
I love a good party theme, don't you?
How can they be five? Where has all the time gone? They will always be my babies.
Here are some of their favorites:

Best Friend: B- Jayden N- Mommy (there was no form of coercion used in this survey whatsoever, I promise)

Color: B- green N- nothing (he is a black and white kind of child)

Food: B- soup (who knew???) N- pbj and ham sandwich

Show to watch: B- Mr. Incredible N- pixar short films

Place to go: B- Oregon (mommy's gonna cry right now) N- Chili's (I don't think he really understood the question)

Sugary thing: B- candy (in general, I guess) N- chocolate

Birthday present: B- all of them N- Bionicles (sorry Hallie-kins)

Here are my four preschool boys holding our no glue, no cut craft. That's my kind of craft for sure!! See, I'm a minimalist (another term for it might be lazy) and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Anyway, aren't they cute?

Well yes, I AM using the same picture as last year. In my defense it's raining like cats and dogs out there (are we in OR or what) and the children look pretty much the same as they did last year. With the exception of Yenner's fat face, Jaydie's new glasses, and longer hair for all three, it would have looked just the same had I taken it today. But this is all besides the point...HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPA!!! You young thing you. Love you lots and lots.

I have at last been reunited with my old friend scrapbooking (and by scrapbooking I mean sliding pictures into their slots) thanks to this little beauty!! Doesn't it just make you want to throw pictures at it?

Also, we found some pea pods in the oven the other day after preheating it and smelling an odd smell. We're guessing it was one or two of the little people in our house once again experimenting with boundaries and how much money they can help us waste. I wish I could say it was a science experiment for school, but I think it's more like an "I need to watch those twins more closely" kind of lesson. You can bet your bottom dollar this was my picture of the day and will be going into my fabulous new album.

We are officially a training wheels free household now. Well, except for when Rob pulls his out; sometimes he forgets. Why are they growing up so stinking fast? Little do they know that they will not be getting a driver's license.....ever!!! That will stop them.

There's a picture of me and my brother sitting on this fire truck with our Grandpa, I think. Oh the memories.

My Four Boys.
Our annual family get-away took place at the happiest place on earth this year. The twins had their first ride on Space Mountain and loved it. These dudes are some kind of fearless. Rob and I cried the first time we went on that ride at the age of 12 or so, but the twins were wondering when we could go on it again. We didn't lose anybody this trip, which is a praise. And I'm gonna go out on a limb and say, no lost children in 2010. I think it's a good goal to have. So when do you want to go with us?
