I really liked this video.

It's less about Honda and more about thinking outside the box. I like the optimism in the video, there are lots of problems but there are also lots of really smart people. I also like how the under tones in the video correlate with my religious beliefs that we are stewards over the earth and we have to be cognisent of what we leave behind for our children.

All Because I am CRAZY!

All because I am WACO this little girl got to play "pin the purse on the girl"

All because I am a LOON this girl got a whole bunch of loot (we are talkin NICE gifts here)

All because I have a DEATH WISH, this girl of mine got some yummy cupcakes (courtesy of WinCo :0)

All because I am a NUT JOB this happy girl invited 17 (YES....SEVENTEEN) of her closest friends (I don't know where she gets so many friends, I don't even have seventeen friends!) to her sixth birthday party and had a MARVELOUS time! The crazy mom did have a lot of help from a few of HER closest friends...(thank goodness!) since dad is MIA! (we miss you DAD).

A good time was had by all, but I can safely say that I won't do this least for a year (jk). Happy 6th Sydnie! We LOVE you!!
