Happy 31st Birthday Braden!

I know it's a little late but I wanted you to know how much I love and appreciate you. You are the best father and husband anyone could ask for.

Halle and Luke were able to play tee-ball together this year. It was so fun to watch how cute they are. This was Luke's 1st year and he was so stinkin' cute to watch. He looked so small almost like Chicken Little. Halle is so funny to watch because although she likes to play sports she is way more girl. Everyone would laugh because she wanted to come to practice and games with her hair all curled and she would stop at each base and fluff her hair under her baseball cap. They had so much fun!

How do I get rid of this?

Okay...not my cute little Lauren but her thumb. When I was pregnant with her we had our ultrasound and decided that we didn't want to know the gender of our baby but one thing we did know was our baby was a thumb sucker. We have the cutest ultrasound pictures of her sucking her thumb. One week after she was born we saw her trying to put her tiny thumb into her mouth and suck. It was the cutest thing I ever saw. None of my other children sucked their thumbs or would take a Binky (which was a good thing) so I never had the problem of trying to take it away. One of my pet peeves is when a toddler with a Binky who is old enough to take it out to speak and then pops it right back in the mouth. But what do you do when you can't take away the thumb?
I have to admit though I still think it's really cute.
