Birthday/Mother's Day Weekend

Saturday was my 35th birthday. I'd like to say that it's just a number and you're only as old as you feel, but let's be honest...35 is "getting up there". Why does it seem so much older than 34? Why is Scott only 31? 35 and 31...that seems almost criminal. This stinks!! And my weekend celebration? Cleaning up puke, bleaching the bathrooms, and sanitizing every inch of the house. Fun! Brady started the sickness, followed by Cate, followed by Scott. (I feel the need to add that sick husbands are so much worse than sick kids). Oh well....13 days til summer break and then everyday will be a celebration :)

Love the cell phone clipped onto her dress...she's all about accessories!

You know Brady is sick when he sits in a chair rather than play ball with his dad and Ben!

Sunday was pretty warm and Cate insisted on getting her new sprinkler out. She never actually ran through it, but she did enjoy running around it

My lilac bush is blooming and smells so good.

Mr. Smallie before the sickness set it. He actually stayed home from school today but decided to try and make his highschool baseball game tonight. He only made it a few innings before returning home and heading straight for bed. When he walked in the front door, he immediately said "there's no need to say 'I told you so' ". But of course, there was a need :)

Bennett's Mother's Day card. I especially like the part about "other mothers may be good but mine is so much better" Finally something we agree on!

Group picture minus Carter (he was in Chicago for a State Cup soccer game). Notice the picture that Ben drew of me on the left :)
