Flashback Friday...Five Years!

This summer marks our
 Five Year Anniversary
living in this house!

Last night, 
I was looking at a collage poster 
that I made for Daddy P...

It says...

"Once Upon a Time 
there was a Hill"

"and our family 
turned it into a home"

It's pretty incredible how fast
five years went by...

and how much our peeps have grown!

Sneaky E ("Mr. Man", as we called him back then), was just five months old when we started building. He turned a year old two weeks after we moved in.

& Miss O, sassy as ever! ;)

& these two...
now it's Big O leaning over dad,
he's a full 4 inches taller!

I love this view here...
the back door as seen through the foyer during framing...

and that same spot now...
pretty crazy!

Don't forget to share your favorite summertime food/drinks to be entered in the drawing to win a brand new Rummikub game!

I had three different people tell me they tried recipes that I blogged about last night, so glad to share the love! ;)

We are headed to the gym,
the grocery (woof), 
then taking a herd of kids to the movies to escape this heat 
(supposed to be 108 today, holy cuss!)

Happy Friday, Friends!
