I can't believe she is almost 5

I remember when I got my first CTR ring and I was SHOCKED when my Maren came home with one last week. I know this growing up stuff happens fast, but I was kind of sad when she showed me. She turns 5 in March and I just had my 3rd baby a couple months ago....I just dont feel like I can possibly have a 5 year old because I just graduated from high school right? Nope 10 years now have gone and I am going on 8 years of marriage!!!! 8 YEARS!!! I guess that's why I have started taking so many pictures...I just don't want to miss a beat!

"He said it was magic"

You know those moments when your kids say something so great and it means so much to you that you can't stop thinking about it for days? This was one of those for me :)
I put Maren to bed last night and her Daddy's hat was in bed with her. She saw it and had a huge smile on her face and I said, "Is that Daddy's hat?" and she put it on her head and laid down and closed her eyes. So I climbed down the ladder and turned around and she poked her cute little head up with this great big hat on her head and she looked at me and said, "He said it was magic, He said it will give me good dreams." and she laid back down and went to sleep.
She has been having really bad dreams lately and has been really scared of everything so Jon has been coming up with knew ideas to help her feel better so she will sleep. He whispers good dreams into her pillow and tells her pillow to give her good dreams and then this hat idea....I love you Jon. Dad's come up with the best ideas sometimes, I don't know how you do it!

Hot Chocolate and Shrinky Dinks

I remember playing with shrinky dinks when I was young up at my dad's restaurant. This was one of my favorite things to do so of course I was excited when Maren got shrinky dinks from her aunt for Christmas. We decided to pull them out yesterday and have some fun with a friend of hers from our neighborhood.
