Micaela is 6 years old!!

Micaela is 6 years old today!

We no longer have 5 kids, 5 and under! (Not that we're all of a sudden normal or anything.. haha)

Micaela has been such a joy and such a big help in our family already.

She had her friend party yesterday and got all dolled up for the occasion. She LOVES getting all dressed up and fancy -I even put some lipstick on her - she was in heaven!

We are so proud of our big girl!

Happy Birthday Micaela!!

Bad nicknames

For those of you who have had to endure an hour or two in our home with our kids.. you know that we have some pretty bad nicknames for our kids. Like therapy-worthy nicknames.. :) For example, we've been known to call Elizabeth 'Bizzel-Squizz.' I have no idea where any of these nicknames came from - I suppose they've just grown and mutated from early, normal-sounding nicknames.

William's current term of endearment is "Billiams." I'm sure it will get much worse as the years go on..
