Five times around the sun

Five years ago tonight I left my house for the Birth Center just before midnight as the fireworks were shooting of down by the river. A few hours later in the very early morning my second child was born in water by candle light. I fell immediately and deeply  in love.
Our sweet son, our only boy, my favorite guy in the whole world, Solomon.
Our New Years baby. A new year, a new life. A precious new beginning.
I am so very glad he came.



I love my funny guy so very very much. Something magical happened the day he was born and I have been a happier person ever since. I am so blessed to be his mama!

****Happy Fifth Birthday Solomon!*****

A tree story, and the flu..

I planned on posting this past weekend but my two youngest children and I got the stomach flu Sunday night  which was then immediately followed by a head cold of some sort so we are all pretty worn out around here. I should post a picture of how awful I look right now, its pretty bad. Poor Sollie missed his school picture day.
Last weekend before all the illness we were able to get out and find the perfect Christmas tree.
We were out taking a drive in the country just and saw a sign on the side of the road for 10$ Christmas trees! Yes! I thought it was too good to be true but we followed the signs to check it out.
A really sweet family, with lots of men dressed in camouflage(which reminded me of my brothers back home) and their children were selling trees that were grown right in their own front yard. 
Any tree any size 10 bucks! I can tell you if we bought that same tree in town it would have been over 50$ for sure. 

 So Solomon spotted the perfect tree.....

and got to watch them cut it down....

  and help Papa tie it on tight for the drive back to the city...


Meanwhile, Nalah and I were distracted....



Why does it look so much bigger when you get it home?

and tasty too..

Nalah thinks it is pretty great...


Can you tell Solomon decorated the tree? You never know what your going to find in it :)
