Another year

Another year has come and gone another year older, how the time flies. Especially when you have 4 children and a husband to manage, and some times the husband is more work than the kids.

I just cut my baby's hair for the first time, she was due for as she is almost 2. Thankfully it turned out fairly well. I guess it just seems a little sad as she is the youngest and in many ways I want her to stay a baby. Any way now her hair is all trimed up so it won't be in her eyes and hopefully won't frazzle so badly in the back.

Granny is here visiting and wanted to get the kids new shoes, they are very excited to get them. Both the older girls picked out pink sneekers, and my son wanted to shoes just like Daddy's, the baby didn't really care, but got pink much to her sisters delight.

My Oldest is getting ready for her first communion, and I sit and think about mine and wonder if I was as little as she is, probably. I think my dress would fit either one of the girls.

Children are very funny

Some children have pacifiers, blankets, or bottles, mine have stuffed animals.

My youngest loves her ponies. I know, I know, mama watch out in a few more years the stuffed ones won't be good enough any more. At this time though she is so adorable with them, She rolls on the floor and says "Neigh neigh, neigh neigh" over and over again. She is just in ectasy over this little stuffed creature. Needless to say it is becoming very well loved.
It makes me wonder how long it will last, my almost 6 year old was the same way, just with ducks, and she still has them and loves them. Not to quite the same extent as when she was 2 but very much none the less.

Goals are somthing that we all need. When you don't have any real goals you tend to wander aimlessly. A list of goals is something that I am working on this week, and I am trying to put in everything from the day to day, to the long term and really what at this point seems completely unatainable.
I have some to realize that we all need goals, and I think that has been a big problem for us over the last couple years. Years ago when we were first married we put together a list of things we wanted eventually, and amazingly we actually succeeded in that list. So maybe we need to do the same thing again, at least it can't hurt.

I never really did think that I was going to have to learn how to cook again. Until the Dr told me I needed to take my son off gluten for 3 months. Cooking with out wheat or gluten is rather hard, at least when it comes to baking. The bread I made looked like some kind of pudding inside a puffy crust. Blech, rather gross.
The brownies turned out well though. I seem to have better luck with the backing powder or soda type breads or cakes. I was thinking about trying some Irish Soda bread.
