Almost forgot to mention

With all the chaos of Christmas and New Years I almost forgot to mention on our blog that our second oldest baby, Emanuel, turned 12 on December 26th!!!

Normally, our tradition is that we go out to the movies and out to eat as a family. However, now that we have 5 children who are 3 and under, a family trip to the movies isn't very practical. Still, Emanuel enjoys going and we didn't want to take that away from him, so this year we had to change things around a little bit. Albert and I took him to the mall on the morning of his birthday just us and him...well, and baby Bree who of course can't be away from Mommy. Emanuel got to pick out his presents (which he LOVES) and then we took him out to lunch. Later in the evening, Daddy and the oldest five boys went out to the movies and they saw "Bedtime Stories" which they enjoyed very much. Even Brice sat quietly during the show.

Emanuel says he had a great birthday and had a fabulous time both shopping and at the movies. They got home so late, we didn't get to do cake and ice cream so we did it a few days later. Here are a couple of pics from then. Shockingly, I didn't get hardly any pics of his birthday. These are the only couple I got of cake and ice cream time.
