My little bro (Taylor) got married October 3rd, 2008 and for some reason I am quite sad about it. I absolutely love the girl he married- she is very good for him and fits right in with our family, but I am 10 years older than him and seeing him get married was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. Their wedding was beautiful and Casie (his bride) did an amazing job planning it. When I watched them say their vows and saw my little brother looking at his beautiful bride with tears in his eyes I thought, "What the heck? He can't be old enough to be looking at a girl like that? I remember when he was a little stinker on his leash (his oxygen line) and his first day of Kindergarten when he was so excited to be going to school... now MY oldest is in Kindergarten and my BABY brother is married! I can't believe how time goes so quickly. He grew up so fast and I feel like I have missed the past ten years of his life because I am still in shock that he was kissing a girl, much less MARRYING her. He will make such a wonderful husband and I am so excited to see them build their little family. I love you little bro.
Chloe has had a bit of an obsession as of late with snails. She catches them and keeps them as her "pets"- well that was until Daddy got involved and taught her about being a bit more humane to the poor creatures. Now it's more of a catch and release- she isn't allowed to keep them in jars or cups anymore. This snail was one she carried around all day. She came running in the house to show me her little friend. I had to take a picture because it was sticking it's head out and moving around while she was talking to it and showing it off. She wanted to know if it was a boy or a girl...
Ashton was singing with his guitar today so I grabbed the camera and recorded this video. He cracks me up. He is not shy whatsoever. As soon as he saw the camera he hammed it up. His favorite songs to sing are "Twinkle Twinkle little star" and "Best of Both Worlds" by Hannah Montana. (Thank you big sister) I think he is going to be a rockstar.
Chloe showing off her "gold" tooth. When she went in for her checkup at the dentist and he told her she had to get a cap she was excited because her friend Javin has one too. Now she thinks she has gold in her mouth.
Today was Chloe's first day of Kindergarten! I can't believe she is already 5! She is really a 16 year old trapped in a five year old's body most days. My little monkey is off to the rat race... I can't believe my life has now been turned over to the public school system. She was so excited to get on the bus this morning. I decided to take her to school the first day and she was a bit disappointed, but when we got to her school and parked the car, she sat there for a minute then looked at me and asked, " but mommy who will get the bags for you?" I thought she was referring to the diaper bag so I said, "We don't need the diaper bag Chloe, we're just going to be a minute. "She said, no, mom, the baby's bags!" She was worried about who was going to get the baby's nursing bags for me while she was at school! She is such a sweet little mommy.
