Five Years Old!

Little man –

Five years old. I can’t believe it.

Last year’s interest in superheroes was fleeting. We are now knee-deep into the worlds of Pokémon and Minecraft. That’s what the big kids like, after all.

You are a great artist and storyteller. (You obviously get this skill from your father.) You’ve excelled at swim lessons this summer. In May, you didn’t even want to put your face underwater. Now, you love to wear your goggles to practice swimming in the bathtub…lol

You have one more year of Pre-K starting this week. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store!

Love you lots and lots!

~ Mommy


Current stats:

weight: 41 lb.
height: 44 in. (Or 3′ 8″)

Shorts: 4T
Shirts: mostly 5T, but can still squeeze into some 4T if the brand runs big
Shoes: Size 10-11

Likes – strawberries, corn dogs, broccoli 
Dislikes – red meat, green peas 

Read this year’s birthday interview! (See last year’s interview here.)

Happy 4th Birthday!

Little man –

How are you four years old already?! Time is just flying by! Three was a good year overall, but “threenager” is a very accurate term! lol Things steadily improved as you got closer to four, though.

You’re really into superheroes now (Transformers, Iron Man, Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles, etc.), but you still like dinosaurs, too. You love to tell stories, and attempt to sing the theme songs to your favorite shows. You prefer to be outside (especially swimming, which you’re much more confident with this year than last). Everyday you ask me if we’re going to school, so I guess that means you’re looking forward to starting Pre-K in a couple of weeks. lol

I can’t wait to see you become a big brother, and teach your little brother everything that you know!

Love you lots and lots!

~ Mommy

My Search for the Perfect Christmas Cards at

** I was compensated for the following review, but all opinions are my own.

With Halloween over, I am in HOLIDAY SEASON mode! Time to start making a to-do list…and the first thing I need to do is to find the perfect Christmas cards to send to our friends and family!

I was recently introduced to, and I’m super impressed just from browsing their site. I have about 83748238423 favorite photo Christmas cards that I have to narrow down to just one. With so many great designs from their global community of independent artists and designers, it’s going to be difficult to choose!

At first, I thought I had it narrowed down to a holiday postcard. Less paper, and no envelopes to stuff, makes my eco-friendly side happy! I really love simple designs like this, with a photo being the focus of the card.

Minted Collage

I’m also considering this postcard from the “new home” category, since we moved earlier this year.

There is something to be said about the more traditional holiday greeting, though. This card is simple and a bit elegant with the foil-pressed lettering.

If I decide to go that route, Minted has beautiful envelope designs AND recipient addressing! That is appealing…all I would have to do when I get my order is add postage and put them in the mailbox!

Don’t wait to check out the great selection of Minted photo Christmas cards for yourself, because you’ll definitely need some time to pick the right one!

Happy Holidays!
