5 Years of FUN!

Earlier this month (April 1st) was Caroline's 5th Birthday. You can see from the pictures how exciting this was! She has filled our family with life and fun since the day she was born.

The long anticipated trip to CHUCK E. CHEESE! She really wanted to hold her own cup of coins.

Some of Caroline's cutest comments:

May 8, 2005- Last week Mom was using the screwdriver to move my tricycle seat foreword. I was right along side helping her when mom realized we needed a wrench. I walked inside and said "O.K. Ranch in the fridge Mom."

Dec. 21, 2005- (age 2 1/2) "Mom, can I have some ketchup on my hot dogs... then a pause... Can I have some ketchup on my cold dogs? They are not hot."

Jan. 20, 2005- I was holding Dora's dog in the van and told Mom he was wearing a necklace. When Mom told me it was a collar I responded "He doesn't have a phone on his neck silly."

Mom overheard Will and I referring to one of my dollhouse furniture pieces with an amusing name, the "coughing table." So they can use it while they are sick.

Aug. 15, 2006- Will went to play at a friend's house so Cara was spending time with Mom helping clean the bathroom. She was happily humming as she worked. When Mom forgot to give quick acknowledgement to one of Caroline's successfully completed tasks, she said "Thanks for me helping you. I'M A PLEASURE."

Sept 5, 2006- (age 3 1/2)The other morning we were tidying up the house as a family. Dad asked Cara to get her bed made. She said, "We're playing house. Now, let's pretend this is YOUR bed."

Aug. 2007 (age 4)- Seeing our neighbors' home toilet papered (Decorations in their trees) she exclaimed "They think it's Christmas already!"

"Make each day your masterpiece."
