Back to School!

Oh my gosh, how is summer already over?!?  Kate went off to 5th grade this morning and I have to say that I’m about to have a mental breakdown.  How is it her last year of Primary School when she just started preschool?!?

Oh my gosh!  So freaking cute!

And now look at her, practically grown!  And yes, her hair is purple.  What can I say, I felt bad that she has to wear a uniform (although truly I LOVE the uniforms!) and since there are no rules against hair dye, purple it is!  I’m not crazy though so we didn’t bleach it.  It’s a wash in dye that’s supposed to last for 30 washes.  We’ll see.

It just seems impossible to me that next year she will be in middle school and the babies will be in kindergarten!

Christmas Pictures

Look at these beautiful pictures of my babies!

It was so cold, but my kids are (mostly) good sports.

There was a lot of “throw your coats over here!  Stop shivering and smile!  Now put your coats back on and walk over here!”  lol.

But I love how they turned out.  My sister and I do cousin pics every year and I love them!  Mia’s dress (my favorite Kate hand me down) is comically too large, but I just happened to get these perfect matching plaid shirts for the boys from my sister-in-law and we made it work.

I’m so glad that my sister is such a good sport about me getting a cousin pic of them every year!  And who knows, maybe next year I’ll get some where they’re all smiling at the camera at the same time.  lol.
