The next morning Russ took the kids on a little hike. All of the kids did so well. They all got along and played nice. It was a really good experience. We kind of got a feel for what we might need and what we could live with out if we ever had to live off our 72 hour kits. I'm glad we went and we are all looking forward to doing it again.

It is so fun as a parent to watch my kids get so excited about things. Holidays and birthdays are one. I think Reese ate way too much sugar and candy yesterday because she woke up at 10:00 last night and needed to sleep on mommy's floor. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL.

Yesterday our baby girl turned FOUR!!! I can't believe it. It happened way too fast. She has been soooo excited for her birthday this year. We have all been talking about it for weeks. I made her a birthday countdown one week prior just to make it that much more exciting. She loved it. She got to rip off a new piece every night before bed.
One thing we have been working on with her is not sucking her thumb. She made up her own mind that when she turned four she would be done sucking her thumb. The other day she was helping me make something in the kitchen and she said, "when I turn four Jesus said I can't suck my thumb anymore. He would help me." Then she looked up at the ceiling and said, "I heard you Jesus, I heard you." So sweet. I think that is what it's going to take to break this really hard habit. Yesterday she would stare at her thumb like she REALLY wanted to suck it but she knew she shouldn't. Kind of sad. This morning she gave in and has been sucking it all morning dang it.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY REESE!! We love you sooo much. We are so lucky to have you in our family. You are so funny, and silly. You are loving and cuddly. You are very smart and super sassy. And we wouldn't trade you for anything in the world.
