5 years old!

Holy cow! I can't believe it has been five years ago since Jacob came to our little family. He has sure grown up a lot! We have been so blessed to have him in our lives. He makes us laugh. He drives us crazy. He constantly amazes us with how much he knows. He is so very sweet. He loves his little sister (most of the time). He is still as big as ever! He started out at a whopping 10 lbs 12 oz,19 inches long and is still HUGE! People are always mistaking him for a 6 or 7 year old. I love my lil' man so very much! And I am SO blessed that he is my son. He has such a tender heart and sweet spirit. I hope and pray that he stays that way!

5 years ago:
Cutest boy ever!!

P.S. I will be posting more pictures soon.

Do you wanna win it?

OK, I saw this on Shana's blog and decided it would be fun to play too! I love a good challenge! Oh, and thanks to Shana for the wonderful way of wording everything! hehehe :)

So, here's the you want to win something homemade by me???? Something fun, creative, and downright cute? Well here's your chance!

I will make something just for you, I hope (but can't guarantee) you'll like what you get! I promise you'll have it by the end of the year (see how I give myself plenty of time, you might not get it until 11:59 on December 31st :) The first five people to comment to this post will win.

But wait! There's a catch...YOU have to make a post on YOUR blog with the same offer! I know, this is the part that made me hesitate...but don't you think it would be fun?!!

Now.....GO! ;)

So, the flu bug has made another stop at our house. This is the second time this year!! Ugh!! I was up with Aleigha for most of the night last night. It is SO not fun when they are this little. It's not fun no matter how old they are...but this age they just don't understand what's going on and why. I'm just praying that nobody else gets it!! Thankfully, Jake was good and Aleigha and I were able to sleep this afternoon and now Jon is home and is helping. It is SO nice that he is so willing to help!
That's about it for now. I will post something later about what's been going on besides this fun stuff!
