From the girl: "I sing just like the girl on this song." Referring to her favorite Taylor Swift song. Telling her friend, Camryn. Although, in her opinion, Camryn did not sound like the girl.
"Mom, I'm afraid the fever is coming back." The fever being her sickness from the last two days. Poor girl was so sick. Mid-puking, "Mom, make it stop. It's yucky. Please! I don't like it!"
"Mom, I want some of your yummy lotion." Victoria's Secret lotion of course.
From the country boy: "Oday, I will watch the owympics wit you after I watch my horsey movie."
He runs around shooting guns all.day.long.
"If you don't let me ______ then I won't may-ee (marry) you." This one works a little better on Gracie than me. Or "If you don't let me ______ then I won't be your mommy." funny boy. And the newest, "If you don't let me _____ then I won't let you make my hair spiky." And he tells Coleton he won't be his best buddy.

Gracie is so excited to be 5 today! She has picked her birthday dinner - corn, baked beans, sweet bread, and crab wontons. (we may need to add a protein in there) She's thrilled because I made her homemade brownies for her birthday. I can't wait to see her blow out 5 candles!
I love you Gracie. So much. I look into your eyes and see so much honesty, hope, and love. I'm lucky to be your mom. You are my little friend all day long.

Technically, Gracie isn't 5 until tomorrow. I just had to blog today because I cannot believe it! She is, of course, so excited, but I'm a little sad. She loves getting older and learning new things. Today she told me that 2 plus 2 plus 1 is 5. (she's a little into the number 5...) Tomorrow she gets to dress up for preschool (it's sports day) and bring brownies for treats. The girl loves brownies!
We signed Gracie up for basketball last night at the GVR recreation center. We just happened to be in the gym when practice started and they had one open spot on the team. Gracie was in her black boots with heels, but jumped right in! Ryker would love to join in, but isn't old enough. He said, "Mommy, I too little to play?" He gets to play on the sideslines, though, so I think it will be fun for him too.
