My Omen, (yes, my Omen, since that's how Owen writes his name!!) is turning five today. FIVE!

He's my BABY!! And he's FIVE!!

A lot of moms get all teary and nostalgic when their kids, especially their babies, get older.
But not me. It's not that I'm not sentimental or emotional.
It's just that for me, it's EXCITING to watch them grow up and turn older. Definitely worthy of celebration and joy, not tears and regret.
I mean, look, when your five year old has facial hair, that's really SOMETHING!!

Happy Birthday Owen!!

Saw this concept on Lisa B's blog and thought I'd give it a whirl.

This post is all about the word Still as it relates to my life right now.

Still employed.

Still hoping Kevin will find another job.

Still in denial about the demise of the economy.

Still hoping that Michigan (and Detroit) will survive when the auto industry behaves like a Shrinky Dink.

Still taking at least one picture every day for my own version of Project 365.

Still blogging.

Still reading other people's blogs.

Still completely in love with my three kids.

Still not convinced that we're done having babies.

Still having fun with my husband.

Still scrapbooking.

Still trying to catch up to the ScRap SiStaZ challenges.

Still not eating right.

Still not exercising every day.

Still loving summer the very best.

Still waiting for Spring to spring.

Still loving the Tigers, and Major League baseball season in general.

Still wishing I had tickets to Opening Day today.

Still wishing I had the winning Mega Millions ticket.

Still not talking to my childhood best friend (it's been 8.5 years now).
