Friday Five

1.  My big girl said something that made me laugh the other day.  We were going through boxes of Spring/ Summer clothes and putting away winter clothes.  We only found 1 shirt to fit her (out of 3 boxes).  So she said, "You know what this means, don't you?  It means we need to take a shopping trip to the Ozarks."  (As a side note, we live about 3 hours from the Lake of the Ozarks and try to go there once or twice a year and shop in the big outlet mall.)  At age 6, I feel I have trained my girls right - always looking for a reason to go shopping!

2.  My little one said something funny the other day also.  They were over at a friends house playing and the boys were chanting "Girls go to Jupiter to get more stupider."  When they came home, the little one was telling me about it.  Then she says, "That's not right!  Girls go to California to get more clothes and shoes!"  LOL  She's only 5 (well, 5 on Monday).  And we have never been to California at all, let alone to get more clothes and shoes.  Ahhh, I love my girls!

3.  Big birthday party planned for Sunday.  My little one is turning 5!  She asked for "all the pink dresses, and maybe a pink toy" for her birthday.  She's getting 2 pink dresses, and a pink bicycle. 

4.  We are heading to the Chicago area VERY early tomorrow morning for my niece's First Communion.  It will be a long day, but worth it.

5.  Spring weather in central Illinois means it's beautiful one day, storming the next, windy the next and cold the next.  Today is starting out beautiful and ending up stormy.  You gotta love spring in central Illinois!
