I just found this cool website that mixes your words up to make a cool arty thing so I thought I would try it. I used the words from Elsie's birthday post so it is about Elsie, again...

Oh Girl, You're One!

Today is Elsie’s birthday and we had such a fun day. We had a little party at the pool so we could eat cake and cupcakes and still keep the kids entertained. From a mom’s perspective, this was the best idea ever! No cleaning the house before guests arrive and no cleaning after they leave! Piece of cake! Haha! So we went to the pool with just a few special friends: Bastian’s, Williams’, Amberson’s and of course Grandma! Elsie was great! She had fun getting into her “e” shaped cake, although she was definitely not attacking the cake (maybe because it wasn’t chocolate, my bad!). Oh yeah, the other awesome idea: washing the cake mess off Elsie in the pool (shhh, don’t tell the lifeguards ;)! Anyway, the weather was great, the company was great and the baby is big now! What a great day. We wish we could have shared it with all our family, hopefully next year!

This relationship is moving too fast…you’ve changed…

I’m uncomfortable with where this is going…I feel like you are pulling away from me…you’re more interested in playing with your friends than spending time with me…we hardly ever snuggle anymore…I miss the way you used to stare at me as if I was your whole world, now you’re so busy you only look for me when you want something…

No, I’m not breaking up with someone, I’m crazy about my baby girl but she just isn’t a baby anymore! How did this happen? I know I never took my eyes off her but somehow I was blinded by adoration and didn’t see how her growth would suddenly change our relationship. I miss the baby I used to take naps with and who would sit on my lap for hours. Now she wants to follow her big brother and sister everywhere, climb on everything, feed herself, eat anything she finds on the floor and WALK! You would think this would be a piece of cake by the time you get to a third child, but no, it’s actually harder. So Elsie, I'm begging: slow down my baby girl!

Spoof on the new Twilight Movie

I thought this was hilarious. If you haven't seen a trailer for the movie coming out in December, just Google Twilight movie...I think this spoof should be part of the bonus features when it comes out on DVD!
