Annie's 5th Birthday

Oh, forget it! I tried to give my kids codes instead of using their real names. I can't keep up with the codes, so why should my readers be able to. I'm not going through all these posts to try to edit their names. I'm leaving it as it is. K2 is Annie. I'm leaving the rest of this post as is in order to let my readers know how nutty I really am. HAHA! I apologize to you all for my moment of insanity. Just love me for who I am.

K2's birthday is a few days after Christmas. That timing isn't really good for a Sweeney style birthday party, so we waited until a couple weeks into January. I must admit I LOVE birthday parties. I feel that when you grow up with a thousand (or four) siblings, you deserve a day to call your own. We have big parties! Anyway, K2 decided that she wanted to have a sleepover. My first slumber party was my 5th birthday, so it was fitting that my daughter have her first slumber party at 5, as well. We had a great time.
My neighbor, Amy, helped me with the cake. Isn't it cute. Each head represents one of the guests. The two girls in the middle are my daughters, K2 and K4. :) This may be my favorite cake, yet. It even tasted pretty good.
We had a fashion show. As you can see, we are growing lots of potential runway stars here in KY! Check out the before and after shots.

KID Codes

So I said I was going to attempt to be better at updating my blog. C1 has a birthday party coming up and I haven't blogged about A1's or L1's parties, yet. I still blame C2 for stalling my blogging this time around. I'm sure the next time I stall, it will be because I'm too confused about the kids' new blog names, L1, A2, L2, C1, and C2. Maybe I should just assign numbers: K (for kid)--K1, K2, K3, K4, K5. The numbers go in order from oldest to youngest. 1 being oldest, 5 being youngest. Make sense? That's the new code. Thanks.

I still haven't had the chance to go through the blog and edit the kids' names, so if you're new and you want to know the real names, you have a little time to blog stalk. I've never been concerned about privacy, but I'm feeling uncomfortable about my children's real names being in cyberworld. :(

OK, I'm really bad at this stuff.

I claim to be supermom. I gave myself the name on Halloween. I made myself a superhero costume. I also made my girls' costumes. I'm a full-time, working mommy of five. I managed to handmake costumes. Supermom sounds fitting, right? However, I was really a supermom, I probably would have updated this blog WAY before now.
To be honest, we've been adjusting. I think it may have taken longer to adjust to being a family of seven this time around than it was the first time. It might have been because the first time we became, SEVEN it was the beginning of summer break. I wasn't working. This time, it was the beginning of the school year. Yup, I'm sure that was the difference.
I am making a promise to myself to be better at this blog stuff. My family seems to interest tons of people. HAHAHAHA. If only they really could be flies on the wall. We've been blessed so much, so why not share the joy? I do have to be careful. I tend to be a VERY open person. The internet is not the safest place for people like me. However, I do feel that God gave us our family and it is part of our job to share our story with the world. Therefore, I do not wish to make it private. I will be editing my post soon to remove my childrens' first names. They will be referred to as L1, L2, A1, C1, and C2 for now on....
