My first time blogging!

Well, I cannot believe I am "blogging", just a few years ago I probably would not have even known what the heck that meant! Well here I am. My little attempt to capture and remember life with my little ones without having more "stuff" around. I am really starting to appreciate a paperless world sometimes! Just hope this website is around for awhile!!

Just FYI as to why I chose my title. Of course I wanted something to reflect my children. I thought about "A Super Hero, a Princess, and a Babe" - which is a total reflection of who they are, or think they are. Then I figured that was a bit long. And who knows maybe I will still be doing this 10 years from now, and Baby Cy will not be a baby anymore and hopefully Evan (my 4 year old) will have figured out he is actually not a super hero, nor can he be one when he grows up - at least in the sense of actually flying or swinging via webs! So, I went with their favorite colors. Evan has been obsessed with orange since he could talk. Lydia thinks ANYTHING in a store that is pink is hers. And well for Cyrus, Evan and Lydia both came to the consensus that Cy likes green for whatever reason. So, maybe they know something I do not.

Well, I will jump in with today. Today had many blessings. A whole afternoon with the five of us. We went to the Berenstain Bears save Christmas at the Rose - such a beautiful theater. It is smaller and really just perfect for kid size. We even had front row seats...which I am not so sure we will do next time, that was a lot of looking up! Lydia enjoyed the children's performance before the show. She was so into it. I think she was the first to clap after their songs and mimicking their moves! It was 2 cute.

Tonight, I got some great pictures of Cy in his baby Santa hat and diaper - oh, he knew he was cute too and really showing off. Oh, how I wish I was a professional photographer to capture these shots more perfectly - how they really are.I got some good ones of Evan too with Cy. He is so hot and cold with the camera thing. He either wants to be in every picture (I can tell his little feelings get hurt if I say - can I just get Cy?) or he is completely annoyed that I want his picture!

I will end with my favorite quote of the day. "I will be like a Princess and I will spin around". Lydia when she saw her Christmas dress I had put out for her to wear to her cousins Christmas program at their church. This just has to be innate in little girls.
