Sometimes living life in a big family does feel like a three-ring circus, but that's my life, and, all-in-all, I LOVE IT!

Happy Birthday, Mia!

Mia turns five today!  We've already had a big family celebration on Easter Sunday for both Mia & Sophie at our house, and this evening I get to celebrate with her again at her home.  (Ray has to miss it as he's heading out to Denver for work ~ I'm wearing a very sad face here).

I have enjoyed every minute spent with the 'Birthday Girl' from the moment I first laid eyes on her:


('Still haven't been posting or visiting ~ 'still crazy/busy.  Jayden's been suffering with his allergies/asthma already this season due to the mild weather and everything blooming early.  He was off school all week for Easter break, and he was supposed to go back today but he's home here suffering with watery eyes, drippy nose, and breathing problems.  'Lots of other things going on here too and I hope to post about some of it soon.  And I hope to catch up with everyone soon too.  'Hope all is well with everyone.)


  1. HI EILEEN - beautiful, beautiful pictures, All the memories, Wow.

    I Miss you
    Love Gail

  2. When I saw the bold print in my Reader file, EILEEN,...Yay!... I got so anxious to click it and see what was going on in your life. Then I got to look at such darling pictures of your sweet little Mia! She sure was born with lots of thick gorgeous hair. And look at her now. Beautiful as ever!

  3. Eileen...there are many babies that are beautiful on the day of their birth (even though all babies are gorgeous to their Moms, Dads, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, etc.)...but I can say without reservation that Mia was beautiful in the photo on the day she was born, and she is beautiful today. Happy birthday, sweet girl.
    Jayden...I hope that those nasty allergens will abate, and that you will feel better very soon.
    Hugs and love to you, my friend.

  4. Oh good Lord Eileen, Katie goes through that same allergy misery every year! She takes two medications everyday for it. I hope Jayden starts feeling better soon. I know first hand how sick it can make them feel.
    Happy Birthday to Mia! I remember her third birthday like it was yesterday!!
    Love Di ♥

  5. Mia is so beautiful! Happy birthday to your little darling! I hope Jayden feels better soon.

  6. Her eyes! Her EYES! I love the pictures of her with the cake. I "hear" your busy life, Eileen. I DO miss you, but so understand. We spent a week in North Carolina with my brother and his wife. Took day trips ourselves; Gary golfed, etc. Returned home Tuesday evening and have been keeping a low profile - vacationing at home.

    We are awaiting word of the birth of our 11th grandchild - hopefully by morning.

    Much happening here, too :)

  7. I think you've been gone long enough don't you? Come on, I REALLY,REALLY miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love Di ♥
