Birthdays, Soccer, Tooth, & Mary!

I slack, again, on my online journal of life.  And I have had some moments I have been wanting to document!  For example, this Wee One has turned 1.  She may appear all sweetie and cuteness and innocent.  But really we have to keep her locked up ~

in jail
'cause she is so naughty.
I told her she could have one phone call.

We love her though!
I guess we can keep her!
Happy 1 year Sweet Babes!

This girl has also had a birthday that has come and gone!

She is now 5.
Where does the time go?
(How many times has that phrase been said? - but is such a real question)
There are so many changes in the first 5 years of life. 
5 years to an adult is not a big thing.  I feel like I have not changed (much) in the last 5 years of my life,
but not so with little ones.
4 years ago she was this

and now she is this.
Happy 5 years Lydia.
We love you!

We have actually been in San Diego
hanging out!
I only have 454 pictures of our vacation....yikes!
I did not even know my camera would hold that many.
No worries, I will not post all of them.
But before I post those ~
Here are a few May moments I never did document.
We wrapped up soccer

lost a tooth
(at soccer)

(his 1st one - he is a late bloomer for that)

We made sun lemon cupcakes,
(for Our Lady of Fatima)
which no one really liked- they were from a box, those are always good.
My first "box" experience we did not like!

And the kids had fun making their miracle of the sun fruit platter
as we celebrated Our Lady of Fatima
(sorry I did not bother to crop pic - but I do love those Ikea cups)

The kids love "making candy"
So we made Mary and a few Immaculate Hearts!

We attempted our first May Alter, but I am not sharing a pic.
With a baby and placing a cloth on little table for an alter, just was a bad idea,
so I ended up putting our "alter" (bench) on top of another table,
so baby could not reach it and it was less than ideal shall we say.

Speaking of little tables I found this pic I snapped
because I think it is it a little funny.
Lydia always wants to make stuff - always.
Her creations are very real and wonderful to her.
Like this table.
If I toss it and she would see that I threw it away, she would say,
"Mom, that is my table" -
as in why would you throw away a perfectly, "usable" item?...
Because in her little mind it is perfectly functional!!!

I guess I will stop there.  Oh, we did have a bird in the house the other day.  Ewwww.
It pooped (not on anything cloth - thank goodness) and we got it out the door.
Lydia was the only one in the house when it happened.  She was scared. 
She keeps telling everyone about it. 

OK, I will sound off with one more pic of SAN!

more to come!
