How can this be????

My Baby Bear is 3??
 It seems like only yesterday that you were born.  What a day, and what joy you have brought to our family over the past three years.  I can say, without a doubt, that our time with you has been a blessing.  I hope you always know how much we love and adore you. You have come a long way, sweet baby...





Happy Birthday to my precious little man.

They sound so similar to the von Trapp Family??

Okay, this post has absolutely nothing to do with the von Trapp Family or the Sound of Music, it is all about my family, and our amazing..... no.... fantastic and magical.... Heck, its fantastical, rendition of The Twelve Days of Christmas.
On Christmas Eve, my parents hosted 22 family members for an evening of dinner, chattin', and some caroling.  It was such a fun time.  I think I took a bazillion photos (I'm sure my family feels I am Bentonville's very own version of the paparazzi!).
If some one moved I snapped it....



if my babies rang a bell I took 10 pictures of each ding a ring....


and if all 22 members of the family sang..... Ummmm, I videoed it!
(sorry the video is a lotta shaky and a whole buncha blurry, but this way the the viewing audience cannot match a face to the fantastical vocal stylings of my family members)
Anyways, the evening was a happy time.

I had so much fun, and I just wanted to bottle up that special memory and have it in my pocket forever.
