Cora turns 5!

My my my how time flies! My little girl turned 5 this past Saturday. I can't believe how much she has grown up. She has accomplished so much but her biggest just happened recently. Riding her bike w/no training wheels and starting off by herself w/no help!!!

We had her birthday party at the "Jump-n-Jive" in Amarillo. Its the coolest place...a huge building w/inflatables....kids literally bouncing off the walls. LOL.

We had our wonderful family show up with my cousins kids and aunt. Didn't seem like we got to visit much but you know w/family that is okay, because you can pick up where you left off at last time you were together as a family. I can't get over how much all the kiddos have grown! We had an awesome time and would like to share that with you with these pictures:

Jantz was a very sick boy that day; that is about all he did then he was under the table w/a pillow and blanket asleep. Poor baby!

Kids getting ready for the cake: Thanks Holly! It was very delicious and awesome; lots of compliments.

Birthday Girl! Always smiling... she woke up that morning, first words: "Mom,am I five?" My reply: Yes you are! She starts singing: I'm five, I'm five, I'm five, Oh yes I'm five!

Present time!!! Make-up; dress-up Jewelry; Games!

Long time Photo's

This past weekend, we purchased a new camera. Due to our old one that we had for 5 yrs. Here is a brief story on our camera's. Bought a Sony once we moved to San Antonio...left in a shopping cart at Sam's. (Both our faults.) 2nd one...right before Cora was born, 2nd Sony...mother & I went to visit family; never saw the camera again. Either I left it at the family's house or two, I left it on top of the car and drove off. (My fault) 3rd camera: just recently died on us. I pick it up to take w/us yesterday to Cora's party....dead. Thinking to myself, can't be its been charging for a week!!! So I leave it. Get in the car, driving along, Botos said to me, "U know what you forgot?" I replied, "Yep the Camera...dead." He starts grinning. Ummm ok. He confesses that he dropped it the other day at the field. GREAT!! Cora's 5th birthday party & no camera. Thank goodness for nanna (Mother-n-law!) So in remembrance of our last camera...here are some pics it took:
